He's got a good point. It makes one think of Pastor Martin Niemöller, who said:

"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), in his speech for the Confessing Church in Frankfurt on 6 January 1946, of which this is a partial translation.
