Kasich Ad Attacks Trump with Link to Infamous Anti-Nazi Poem

John Kasich is getting pretty tough with his attacks against Donald Trump, this time with an ad connecting Trump to an infamous anti-Nazi poem.

You’re probably familiar with the words of Pastor Martin Niemoller––”First they came for the Socialists/Trade Unionists/Jews, and I did not speak out… Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Well, Kasich’s new ad invokes similar language by retired Col. Tom Moe, a former POW, who said, “You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims should register with their government, because you’re not one.”

He continued:

“And you might not care if Donald Trump says he’s going to round up all the Hispanic immigrants, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says it’s okay to rough up black protesters, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump wants to suppress journalists, because you’re not one. But think about this: If he keeps going, and he actually becomes president, he might just get around to you. And you better hope there’s someone left to help you.”

Watch above.
