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.

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.
