In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me –
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
Those of you who don’t know what this post is in response to, be glad.
Those of you who do know, remember this: Bigotry is bigotry. Take it at face value.
Unfortunately, someone that people once associated me with has shown himself to be little more than a bigot. I can only say that I’m glad very few people, if anyone, associate me with this individual (he has a name but it’s not worth printing) any longer.
I’m a Christian, and I don’t think I’ve made it any secret that I disagree with Islam. But anyone who would advocate rounding up all Muslims and deporting them, and outlawing the religion entirely is completely out of line. He needs to be deported back to whatever rock he crawled out from under.
I can only hope that when this psychopath decides it’s time to come for the Christians and he comes after me, that there’ll be somebody left to speak up.
Those of you who own a copy of my book, please turn to page xiii, go to the third full paragraph on that page, and to the third sentence, and cross out the first name that appears. I wouldn’t want anyone to ever find that page and get the idea that I ever agreed with anything that sorry excuse for an American–and for that matter, a very sorry excuse for a human being–ever said.
