SPEAK OUT

Speak Out - Martin Niemöller parody

This is dedicated to the Media that protects the DA with biased silence (Carte Blanche, Sunday Times, Mail & Guardian, The Daily Maverick, ENCA etc.). PLEASE HELP SAVE THE WESTERN CAPE through journalistic integrity that exposes the truth without taking a side.

First the DA came for the votes of the rich whites-
but I did not speak out for I was only poor white.

Then they came for the integrity of the Media and journalists-
but I did not speak out, instead I watched and read the bias

Then they came for the votes of the coloureds and blacks-
but I did not speak out for I was neither coloured or black.

Then they came for the activists, those that spoke out-
but I was only strong enough to comment on social media.

Then they came for their own politicians,
the believers and opportunists in opposing factions-
but I did not speak out because I was not a politician

Then the DA came for me-
and there was no one left to speak for me.

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.
