|Really, Roy Moore?|
Even if it ends up not making sense or sounding downright idiotic
Take the famous poem by Martin Niemoller for example. Niemoller was a Protestant pastor and an outspoken opponent of the Nazi party. He wrote the following:
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.
Wonderful poem about the those who watch tyranny and do nothing and then reap the unfortunate benefits of their silence.
However, in the hands of someone like Alabama judge and renowned anti-gay activist Roy Moore, the poem becomes bastardized into something ludicrous:
And here I thought gays came after children first. At least that's one anti-gay meme seemingly abandoned here.
