“First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up, because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me.”
--- Rev. Martin Niemoller (1945)

Could anybody comment on this famous quote? I thought Hitler never really bothered catholics... these days you can hear all kinds of weird stuff about Hitler's Germany.

Ironically this message has been used to support revisionists. "Support our freedom of speech, or next thing you know, they'll take away your freedom of speech." type thing.
