Re-gaining Unconsciousness - NOFX

This quote was added by soattainable
First they put away the dealers, keep our kids safe and off the street. Then they put away the prostitutes, keep married men cloistered at home. Then they shooed away the bums, then they beat and bashed the queers, turned away asylum-seekers, fed us suspicions and fears. We didn't raise our voice, we didn't make a fuss. It's funny there was no one left to notice when they came for us.

Sorry stuffnthangs, but this isn't the quote by Martin Niemöller which you're thinking of. Plus, quotes aren't allowed to contain newlines, so the original formatting wouldn't be allowed anyways.

It's typed out all wrong :)

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.
