Remember, not every “public interest group” is a public interest group. Witness this “public interest group” that is lobbying against a soda tax in Philly (emphasis added).

The antitax group, which (surprise!) is funded by the American Beverage Association, referenced Niemoeller in response to a tweet from a skeptical Ed Rendell, who asked why doughnuts and other unhealthy foods aren’t being considered for a new tax, too.

I do like my daily diet cola, but, as far as I am concerned, this is like the fellow who, after getting pulled for speeding, turns to the cop and asks, “Why didn’t you pull over that other guy? He was going as fast as I was.”
