There is a very famous poem by German Pastor Martin Niemöller about the Holocaust:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

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.

Newsome posted a paraphrased version:

Unfortunately, he didn’t write it,  Air Force Col. Tom Moe did.  Newsome admitted the plagiarism after he was caught.

Here is the video of Lt Col. Tom Moe:

Now, look at what Newsome said about Mrs Trump’s plagiarism:

Glad to see GOP finally giving Mrs. Obama respect. Just odd that it had to come vis a vis the immigrant wife of a xenophobic birther.

Trump is great at art of distraction. We shouldn’t allow her plagiarism to take our focus off his Racism, Sexism, Xenophobia, + Jingoism.
