- It might not be a bad idea to sign a petition showing opposition to that philosophy though. :)Nov 30, 2011
- Reminds me of a quote from Martin Niemöller, nice to see some in the USA recognising that normalising injustice has consequences, but will the petition extend to non-US citizens who have faced this treatment for over a decade?
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.Nov 30, 2011
