A message for those with eyes to see

First they came for the Dianic Wiccans, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a "transphobic oppressor of non-binary-gender persons."

Then they came for the Folkish Heathens, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a "racist White Nationalist segregationist."

Then they came for the Devotional Polytheists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not "putting the gods ahead of Social Justice."

Then they came for the Reconstructionist Pagans, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not an "traditionalist monarchist regressive crypto-fascist."

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  1. That is amazing wisdom. And unfortunately I fear a time when we will have to go back underground just to survive.
