My quote for the day

In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.

"First they took religion out of judicial procedings, and I didnt say anything because I wasnt in the courts. Then they took religion out of the schools, and I didnt say anything because I wasnt in school. Then they took religion out of the Constitution, and I didnt say anything because I wasnt in the Government. Then they took religion out of everything, and I knew it was too late, the ACLU had turned us into Socialists."

-Quote from me in parody.

Nice one though H. I will say that for all the lefties out there that like to call Bush a Nazi, this should put a nice light on the difference. That dummy is trying to tell us all how Islam is a religion of peace, no matter how many of us are ready to condemn it. Many on the Right are allowing much more "multiculturalism" than we would like.....

So, really, they are nothing like the Nazi's, and that is a good thing.

The Reason I found the quote so interesting is that it does make you think.

i can see how your reading it and I do not think you are wrong , but i do feel that the words can be read in many ways by many people ,

it can be viewed to show how the Neocons are not (certainly as yet) anywhere near as bad as the Nazis i see that

but it can also be seen as what can happen when a political party starts to slowly go out of control and nothing is done to stop them

i mean , lets look at ...

first they came for the Muslims , and i did nothing .

Then they came for the Lefties and the Human rights groups and i did nothing

etc,etc until you reach , then they came to the centre minded folks like me , and it was to late ..

words are many things to many people

H, I am very familiar with this quote. And take it for what it's worth. You don''t have to read into it much at all.
It is a real quote from a real person who experienced fascism first hand. Nothing more nothing less. Plus anyone with half a brain can see the similarities of this 60 something year old quote and today's BS.

H, I would love to see more about domestic terrorism.

Heres a cool link you may enjoy H, although you have probably seen this before.

Glad your back.

Thanks for that , and i hear you

I am not yet back into the full flow of posting and story hunting

the primary point of me having the site is to highlight the domestic and foreign terrorism issues

however obviously , my domestic is your foreign and vice verser

i am just trying to get back in the routine and i myself have noticed a few of my posts are verging on being 'off topic'

but lets see what we can find

whilst i am dribling away here , can i say that Phishy and G i do apreciate your comments , i do notice that quite a few people read this site each day and many are regular but it is (in the main) both of you that actually give me feed back by commenting , and with a site like this that is quite new , your comments have been priceless to me

thankyou

np, I enjoy reading it, and I enjoy getting the same feedback on my site from you. I have a hit counter, so I know folks read my site, but without feedback, you dont get anything to reaffirm why you are posting.

I actually want more debate than I do argreement (its a sick pleasure I take in).

Btw, what has Bush or the Repubs taken away? What Muslims have the come for?

yea it is strange , i can't speak for you but this site each day gets between 100 and 250 unique visitors a day (a small amount compared to popular sites like daily dissent who seem to get around 2 to 4 thousand a day) but for what it is worth i am quite pleased to get as many readers as i do , but often suprised that people do not comment that much

maybe my sister is a good example , she reads me every day but is never likely to comment as she feels she would not be confident enough to debate the issues

saying that , who knows why !
