Election 2020

This is what I posted the day after the 2016 election:

Trump wins. I'm appalled. I'm horrified. I'm depressed.
I fear for my country. I fear for humanity.

Unfortunately my worst fears have indeed become manifest.


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.


First they came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Muslim.
Then they came for the Mexican Americans, and I did not speak out — Because I was not Mexican American.
Then they came for the LGBTQ community, and I did not speak out — Because I was not LGBTQ.
Then they came for the black community, and I did not speak out — Because I was not black.
Then they came for the press, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a member of the press.
Then they came for the women, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a woman.
Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
