First they blocked...

First they blocked the child pornography,
and really, who could argue with that?

Then they blocked the terrorist websites,
and I didn't speak out, because I'm not a terrorist.

Then they blocked Anonymous and the hacktivists,
and I didn't speak out, because I'm not a hacktivist.

Then they blocked my blog,
And there was no way I could speak out about political censorship.
