Left-wing pundits are slamming Donald Trump’s son for using the candy Skittles as a metaphor for Syrian refugees and terrorism — but just a few years ago, these same liberals were more than happy to use bite-sized candy as an illustration of “rape culture” in the U.S.A.
Starting Monday night, the left went wild when Donald Trump, Jr., posted a graphic that stated, “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful?” The image then turned the point to the current crisis saying, “That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”
Liberals immediately went after Trump, Jr., saying he was callously comparing human beings to a candy. Just as quickly, the media joined in the attack, fact checking a Twitter and Instagram meme from a private citizen. The Hollywood Reporter received a statement from an executive at Wrigley — the candy’s maker — saying, “Skittles are candy. Refugees are people.” Wrigley’s parent company, Mars, Inc., shared the sentiment on Twitter, as well.
But this idea was far from scandalous in 2014 when the feminist left used this same analogy in a very similar context.
Using the chocolate candy M&Ms instead of Skittles, the social campaign dubbed #YesAllWomen used the exact same analogy to whip up sympathy for women — that their interactions with men are always dangerous because of the few who are abusers or rapists.
A common #YesAllWomen meme posted to Twitter, YouTube, and other social media platforms read: “You say not all men are monsters? Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned. Go Ahead. Eat a handful. Not all M&Ms are poison!”
