They came for Dani Behr, I said she's over there, behind the wardrobe

I usually avoid thinking about / commenting on Internet bollocks (TM) but I really don't understand the sea lion cartoon  / sea lioning at all http://wondermark.com/1k62/
 Or rather, I see what it is supposed to mean but it seems vacuous in exactly the same way as the Pastor Niemöller quote...
They came for the serial killers, but I did not speak up because I was not a serial killer
Then they came for the badger stranglers, but I did not speak up because I was not a badger strangler
(see also Half Man Half Biscuit, obviously https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJYlmEZ399I )

Why not, for example, take the sea lion as representing those upperty women / minorities etc. intruding on a conversation rightly being left to the middle aged white guys? I know it's not supposed to mean that, it represents the 'people whose views are anathema to all right thinking people like us'.

Big sigh.
