Alert #4: First he came for the Muslims, and I said “Guys, let’s take a wait-and-see approach here.”

Remember this?

(Hitler era)

“First 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 not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Here’s the updated version:

(Trump era)

First he came for the Muslims, and I said “Guys, let’s take a wait-and-see approach here.”

Then he came for the Mexican Americans, and I said, “Let’s not be sore losers just because the other guy won.”

Then he came for the press, and I said, “What makes this country great is our peaceful transitions of power.”

Then he came for the women, and I said, “Try to have some compassion for the frustrations of the other side.”

Then he came for the black community, and I said, “I know it sucks, but wait four years.”

Then he came for me, and I said, “How could this have happened? I did everything I could.”
