Martin Niemoller was a German theologian and pastor who witnessed Hitler’s rise to power and opposed him. Hitler confined him to concentration camps until 1945 when he was finally released. Niemoller’s statement could apply today, to the recent raids and seizures of family farms. Here is the statement he made, which is often regarded as a poem:
“They came first for the Communists,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
And by that time no one was left to speak up.”
The very corporations that provide our factory farmed food, produce the chemicals to grow the foods, the pesticides that are not only sprayed on our food, but now injected into the food, that provide us with chemical-laden processed food substances, (all of which gives us cancers, makes our immune systems turn on us etc.), give us vaccines filled with mercury, and then the very research and medicines to cure/alleviate us of the very diseases all of this caused, comes down to a mere few people in control of every aspect of our health.
What am I talking about? What, it wasn’t in the news? There have been raids on small family farms. No, they weren’t selling drugs, they were producing wholesome and nourishing food, just like we have been doing for thousands of years.
Have you decided to grow your own food? You, the homesteader, the farmer, the backyard gardener, would you be willing to spend10 years in jail for growing healthy real food for your children, family and friends? Yes, this is what it has come down to. Morningland Dairy, Estrella Family Creamery and other farms have been raided for providing food that has not even sickened one person.
And yet, corporations that sell tainted eggs, spinach, and hamburger or unsafe over-the-counter medicines and prescription drugs that have sickened millions are still in business.
We have to speak up now, for the farms that do provide health promoting food. For when they are gone, there will be no one to speak for us.
First they came for your herbs, then they came for your supplements, now they are coming for your food.
Please watch the videos below and go to Kelly the Kitchen Kop’s blog and read the posts about this atrocity going on in our own country, what you can do. It doesn’t matter what food camp you adhere to: vegetarian, raw food, cooked food, paleo food, raw dairy, traditional foods……if you eat, you will be affected.
