I’ll close this essay with a poem that truly does fit, for all of you that don’t believe this will affect you. I’m changing it a bit to better fit the subject matter of this essay/rant/plea:
First they came for the downloaders, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a downloader.
Then they came for the youtubers, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a youtuber.
Then they came for the bloggers, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a blogger.
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a social networker.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Thank you for your time. Goodnight, my fellow tumblrers. I hope to continue seeing you for a long time to come…If not, it was an honor blogging with you all. And ask yourself this: If they come for you, how will you feel knowing you could have helped to prevent this if you’d just spoken up in the first place?
Jesus christ I can’t stop laughing
