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.
Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892-1984)
Today in America a cruel cultural war has been unleashed against the over 100 million people who identify as being of Southern and Appalachian heritage.
Why this war has been unleashed against us should not come as any surprise as the leader of America, President Barack Obama, clearly stated his thoughts about us in 2008 while he was running for the Presidency:
“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
He couldn’t have been more wrong!
