I Am Spartacus! 

I haven’t a clue who said the following statement but it might soon hold true again, “When they came for the unionists, I didn’t say anything because I wasn’t a unionist. Then they came for the Jews but I again didn’t say anything because I wasn’t a Jew…” You know how the rest of it goes, when they came for him, there was no one left to say anything… 

So it’s been mentioned how there might be a national registry formed to list all the followers of Islam in this country. How scary is that and have we as a nation really come to this? It’s totally unconstitutional but it just sounds so 1930’s. Instead of men in black uniforms sitting behind rickety wooden desks with thick paper books, I wonder if they’ll be using Mac Book Pros this time?

Remember how I’ve been saying how these are dangerous times and that this is Germany of the early 1930’s? Well folks, we just fast forwarded to the mid-1930’s. Will the Yellow Star of David on the coat be digitally replaced by the Crescent Moon and Star? I guess Mexicans like me be branded with a Mexican Sombrero or the letter M. When and if they start the registration process, I have decided to register myself as a double M, Mexican and Muslim. I can only hope that millions of non-Muslims do the same… I am Spartacus! This too will pass

  1. When Pastor Niemöller was put in a concentration camp we wrote the year 1937; when the concentration camp was opened we wrote the year 1933, and the people who were put in the camps then were Communists. Who cared about them? We knew it, it was printed in the newspapers.
    Who raised their voice, maybe the Confessing Church? We thought: Communists, those opponents of religion, those enemies of Christians – “should I be my brother’s keeper?”
    Then they got rid of the sick, the so-called incurables. – I remember a conversation I had with a person who claimed to be a Christian. He said: Perhaps it’s right, these incurably sick people just cost the state money, they are just a burden to themselves and to others. Isn’t it best for all concerned if they are taken out of the middle [of society]? — Only then did the church as such take note. Then we started talking, until our voices were again silenced in public. Can we say, we aren’t guilty/responsible? The persecution of the Jews, the way we treated the occupied countries, or the things in Greece, in Poland, in Czechoslovakia or in Holland, that were written in the newspapers
    I believe, we Confessing-Church-Christians have every reason to say: mea culpa, mea culpa! We can talk ourselves out of it with the excuse that it would have cost me my head if I had spoken out.

    Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

  2. It is happening already – the political puppets skating over the hateful rhetoric deferring the blame to media. I agree with you – I feel compelled to convert to Muslim just to show my support.
