Charlottesville.

First they came for the communists,
And I did not speak out.
Because I was not a communist.
Then they came for the socialists.
And I did not speak out.
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists.
And I did not speak out.
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews.
And I did not speak out.
Because I was a not a Jew.
Then they came for me.
And there was no one left,
To speak out for me.

Martin Niemoller (1892 – 1984)
