Jim Goad: A Few Bad Skittles

I don’t remember anyone on the left referring to radical feminists as Nazis a couple years ago when they used a nearly identical metaphor regarding male rapists and M&Ms.
And the roots of Trump’s tweet go much further back than the Nazis. The idea that one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch didn’t start with The Osmonds, you know…
Refugees—a quarter of whom were Syrian—committed more than 200,000 crimes in Germany last year alone. Then there were the two terror attacks in one day pulled off by Syrian refugees in Germany this past July. And the four Syrian refugees nabbed in France for plotting an attack in Germany. And the Syrian asylum-seeker arrested in Germany for hacking a woman to death with a machete. And the two teenage Syrian refugees who confessed to strangling an Austrian man to death in his bathtub.
But it can’t happen here…right?
