The News borrows from “First They Came,” a popular poem penned by Pastor Martin Niemöller, which targets the Germans who turned a blind eye to the tactics used during the rise of Hitler as he took over as the leader of Nazi Germany:

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.
