Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, married an Orthodox Jewish man; she converted to Judaism. They have children…and these children are Donald Trump’s grandchildren. Yet the President of the United States sits idly by, taking instructions from Steve Bannon, and does nothing as the ugly rise of Anti-Semitism emboldens itself.
When you hide your head in the sand and pretend like nothing is happening, the result is Muslims being shot, Mexicans being deported, Jews being targeted, blacks being threatened…this is the reality of Trump’s “Make America Hate Again.” This is the America which Steve Bannon has dreamed of, an America pitting one group against another and allowing the White Nation to take over.
“First they came …” is a poem written by German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
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.
