First Trump Came for Mexicans, Then Muslims and Now Transgender People

One of the Nazis' first victims was Magnus Hirschfeld, once the world's leading advocate for transgender people and their rights

Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller’s lament about the indifference of Germans to Nazi persecution is one of the most famous poems of the modern era, but its exact wording is in dispute. The most famous version, etched on a wall in the Hall of Witness at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C., begins with “First they came for the Socialists and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist” – which is apparently wrong. The museum omitted Communists, possibly because its directors worried that American visitors wouldn’t consider Communists victims worthy of sympathy.

Snip:

 

It’s a process known as creeping normality. Crimes against humanity are first tested on a tiny, unpopular segment before they move on to bigger things

Bigger things, coming to your town soon if Trump has his way.


You are absolutely correct anybody who doesn't see this is in denial

So it begins.
