Martin Niemoeller

From the Martin Niemoeller Foundation web site:-
"When the Nazis came for the communists, I said nothing; I was, of course, no communist.
When they locked up the Social Democrats, I said nothing; I was, of course, no Social Democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists, I said nothing; I was, of course, no trade unionist."

Remember the "Lawyer for Ron Paul", remember HIM?
I remember being threatened with a lawsuit!
MICHAEL: You didn't have to ban him...he eventually showed his hand to all who SUPPORTED AND OPPOSED HIM!
You simply "enforced" the rules.
THAT was a very controversial DP "event", and if I recall correctly it was ZshNinja, among others who reasoned with "The Granger" who given some time, and investigation, recanted her view and support publicly!
BOTTOM LINE: This wonderful website survived many crises and controversies...the Primaries..the Jesse Benton controversy..the obvious trolls and Romney "operatives"

....Which brings us to:
"When they came for me, there was no one left who could protest."

Yes, there's been a "pile-on"..I've witnessed Granger taking her lumps many times, and upon expressing my concerns?...She chastised me, explaining that she could handle it.
She's certainly tough....she has her views...she's been a part of this family of DPers for a long,long time.
The silence is deafening.
Bring back "The Granger".
Contrary to Public Propaganda, my quoting of Martin Niemoeller is more exact...He didn't specify the threat to Jews in his original text..the abovementioned is more pure in it's translation.
I may get some flak over this...the Granger-bashers are many, BUT.....It's the CHRISTIAN THING to do... so deal with it.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!
