    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left
    to speak out for me.
    "
    Pastor Martin Niemöller

    It's still a good quote, although, as pointed out, they "came for" the communists first, then the gays, the Roma, Jehovah's Witnesses (many of the preceding groups wound up in camps even before most of the Jews), the Jews, and anyone else who was "different," not to mention their murdering of the mentally and physically disabled.
