“Quote: 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. LET THIS SINK INSIDE OF YOU. Our reactions today will change this system design to kill the poor people. A roadside vendor has been murdered by Security Operatives. WHO IS NEXT?”
