For John, BLUF: It is easy to go from part of the majority to part of some minority. Nothing to see here; just move along.
In today's Day by Day comic strip the character Jan asks, in the second panel, "Are the Kochs Jewish?" Her husband, Damon, responds, "No-just among the first they came for."♠
I thought that perhaps Mark Basseley Youssef (formerly known as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula) was among the first they came for.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.Pastor Niemöller was imprisoned in Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps from 1937 to 1945.♥
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.

♠ That is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the first panel.
♥ A very small distinction, these were concentration camps in Germany, as opposed to the extermination (or death) camps further east, where killing on an industrial scale took place.
