The latest promo for Republican presidential candidate John Kasich features a speech paraphrased from the words of German pastor Martin Niemoller, who was known as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler.

Republican GOP candidate John Kasich is likening his opponent Donald Trump to Nazis in his latest web ad. In a recent anti-Trump video, Col. Tom Moe, a former Vietnam POW, is shown at an event paraphrasing the anti-Nazi words of German pastor Martin Niemoller.

“You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims should register with their government, because you're not one," said Moe. And you might not care if Donald Trump says he's going to round up all the Hispanic immigrants, because you're not one.”

 

Moe continues: “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." 

The remarks are similar to that of Niemoller's words below.

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.

The ad comes after New Day From America recently posted a video highlighting Trump’s “biggest hits” or most controversial moments including a video clip of Trump saying that he would date his daughter Ivanka Trump if she weren’t related to him.

Before the video was posted, Trump tweeted that Kasich was "one of the worst presidential candidates in history." Kasich has also tweeted multiple times at Trump with one saying that Trump’s rhetoric is "dangerous and bad for America.”
