Facebook Comes For You

The following poem is adapted from a Holocaust poem by Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller. For his work and words, he was sentenced to a concentration camp before and during World War II.

Beware of any social media that starts to censor anyone, and I mean anyone. Eventually they will come for you. Guaranteed.

First they came for Alex Jones,
and I didn’t speak out because I didn’t like him.

Then they came for Paul Joseph Watson,
and again I didn’t speak out because I didn’t agree with him.

Then they came for Louis Farrakhan,
and again I didn’t speak out because he’s an anti-Semite.

Then they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

They they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

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 Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
