By  Ron Ridenour

First they came for Jihad terrorists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a terrorist

Then they came for any Muslim
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Muslim

Then they came for the occupiers
And I did not speak out
Because I was not an occupier

Then they came for all my communications
And I did not speak out
Because I had nothing to hide

Then they came for Japanese war aid
And I did not speak out
Because I had nothing to say

Then they came for German war aid
And I did not speak out
Because I was out shopping
