First they came for

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then 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 out for me

We really need to overturn Roth/Miller…

Funnily enough, I’ve seen people get angry elsewhere that this poem gets repurposed and used elsewhere because it’s “specifically about the holocaust and should never be used for anything else.”

it… it sickens me. when I first watched The People v. Larry Flynt I thought to myself “thank god this period is over”. Even as a dumb teenager. Then I learned about 2 Live Crew and… the awful, terrible injustice they had to put up with. There are still people living off the charges who sold their records.

We need to end this.

By the way, could someone with a better way with words than me shut this Jake guy up for good? https://twitter.com/TimeTrench/status/1259211966427602944

I have a dark and sick sense of humor, but I find it funny that there are “nazis” that still exist today. But they are not called nazis. These “nazis” put people into detainment camps that keep these detained people away from their families, they censor the online world to brainwash their slaves so the powerful people with the most money have their echo chambers satisfied, they promote online surveillance and electronic devices with advertisement I.D.s to exploit people financially and emotionally to keep the elites more powerful than their subordinate work slaves of their economies, they use gender roles that oppress unwilling females and males, they brainwash children with “history” books in primary schools because those “history” books are written by the winners (not the victims in the past) to the point that those history books are not verifiable 100% (especially when modern people don’t have empirical evidence that some of those events in those “history” books actually happened because they were not born yet), they promote their terroristic military with the pretentious morale of honor and respect, they promote a social credit system to dehumanizingly brainwash people to make them become conquered minds with no intellectual freedom, and they corrupt children to benefit their cruel economy and cruel political agendas. The “nazis” are still alive.
