First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Yes, but yr version is out of order, both in the original and in reality: "they" didn't come for the Jews first—the first concentration camps were filled with communists and socialists, and it was only later that the Jews were "taken away", despite earlier discrimination and persecution.
Have been aware of this poem for years only thanks to Michael Savage. Things might be getting bad enough for people to get aware.
I use to listen to Michael Savage on the radio all the time. Complained about what was going on in Marin County although he lived there. I use to say, if he doesn't like what's going on, move out.
It's happening to us right now
I think it would be fine to go after the communists because they are the totalitarian thugs who would be committing these very crimes.
You don't understand the message at all, do you Fred! If you don't speak up for any injustice, then if you need support there may be no one there for you!
We must remember that we are all equal under the law. If we don't insist on equal protection under the law, it can all fall apart @
This poem is all too apt for those rejoicing that conservatives are being silenced. They'll get to you soon enough. Learn from Neimöller's bitter regret, before it's too late.
Sounds regretful because he didn't step in to help the people. Sounds kind ofcregretful and a lesson learned
The Jews especially did not deserve what happened to them. They are the apple of God’s eye.
God's getting real tired of having these poisonous 'apples' jammed into his 'eye'.
In the eyes of a Jewish extremist
Well that's largely the reason they were targeted.
They came for those that were corrosive and destructive to a healthy Germany. And they came for them to deport them. Not to murder them - Google the Haavara Agreement.
So my question for you is, WHY did they " come" for you?
You missed the point of the poem. It's about not doing anything for others when you should.
Are you truly heartless?
HOW DARE YOU!
DON'T ASK QUESTIONS! THAT IS RACIST! ! !
Socialism is coming for you today
under the Democrat Party
Socialism is the nice way to introduce Communism, right.
Does not one see a parallel in what is happening in the USA today?
The Facist grew to fight the Communist. Stalin and Mao killed more, yet Hitler is more vilified.
The communists and fascists are on the same side of wickedness. They both hate Jesus Christ. They both are totalitarian. They both are satanic.
So that makes all the Jewish dead, acceptable? Give your head a shake, David!
Hitler just went about differently. Butler would
I do speak up for everyone but they don't know it. The politicians are crooks. Your poem is right on.
The concentration camps were set up to persecute the communists first. The poem reflects that order
Maybe so, but 6 million of them did not die.
The poem reads First they came for the Jews
Brevity and clarity of thought are the hall marks of this poem.
hmmm, yes, very meaningful, thank you for sharing
When will we wake up.We are all part of the human race.
This is not properly translated. Not at all! The first line is: " when they came for the communists..." then the social democrats, then the labor unions, then the Jews.
