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.
As Trump builds his cabinet with white nationalist, alt-right leaders, and corporate lobbyists, it seems that he will begin by attempting to target and deport 2-3 million undocumented immigrants who have criminal records. We may be tempted not to speak out, because we’re not undocumented immigrants, or we don’t have criminal records. But we cannot afford to be silent. Whatever influence, power, voice, creativity, or energy we have, this is not a time for silent acquiescence.
Speak. Act. Create. Love. Keep calm and carry on.
