First They Came For The Raw Milk

by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) The FDA raids on raw milk farmers have outraged the U.S. public, and an increasing number of people are becoming aware of the overreaching regulatory tyranny of this rogue government agency. But not enough members of the public are yet taking action to stand up against government abuses of power.

Many people prefer to be consumed with their own senseless pursuit of materialistic fulfillment: Fashion, jewelry, money, cars and even mind-numbing distractions like sports and mainstream television. They don't speak out against the FDA raids on farmers because they either don't know or they just figure, "It's not my problem."

A similar situation took place during Hitler's rise to power in Nazi Germany, where most members of the German public, even after being made aware of the atrocities being committed by the Nazi regime, decided it wasn't their problem so they didn't speak out. Pastor Martin Niemoller (…) famously spoke out against the Nazi regime with a statement that began, "First they came for the Communists…"

He was arrested by the Nazis in 1937 and imprisoned in the Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps after being charged with the crime of "not being enthusiastic enough about the Nazi movement." (Which is even more ridiculous than the crime of "mislabeling cheese.")

As a variation of this quote, and inspired by another version of this that I first saw on I offer the following "raw milk" version of Neimoller's famous quote:

First they came for the raw milk
and I didn't speak out because I drank no raw milk.

Then they came for the non-GMO farmers
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a farmer.

Next they came for the home gardeners
and I didn't speak out because I grew no gardens.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak for me.

The time to speak out against government terrorism against farmers and raw milk advocates is NOW! For if we do not stand up against the rampant abuses of power that already exist in government right now, we can only be assured the abuses will escalate and become far worse.

America is becoming the new Nazi-like regime, following in the same footsteps of the corporate-controlled fascism that helped put Hitler in power.
