Skittles candy is in the political news again today.
The candy was brought to the forefront again this week when Donald Trump, Jr., made an analogy on social media in regards to Syrian refugees being infiltrated by ISIS Islamic terrorists.
“This image says it all. Let’s end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first. #trump2016,” Trump, Jr. tweeted on Monday, along with a graphic that said: “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”

Progressive leftist Democrats, of course, feigned a load of butthurt on social media, accusing the younger Trump of equating living human beings with candy and that somehow that is “inhuman,” for the sake of political correctness, as if he was literally reducing certain human beings to Skittles, an absurd reaction considering the plethora of analogies Americans speak daily that are comparable, some of which have to do with “bad apples,” as in “rotten to the core,” or “the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree,” etc.
On Wednesday, at a completely unrelated IRS hearing in which the House of Representatives is considering impeaching Obama IRS commissioner John Koskinen for lying to Congress, leftist open borders advocate and pro-illegal immigrant activist, Democrat Congressman Luis Gutierrez (Commie — Chicago) thought it would be an appropriate time to pull the race card by pulling out the Skittles.
“Thank you, Mr. Chair,” Luis Gutierrez began, rudely smacking his lips into the microphone, making a mockery out of what should be a serious hearing. “Because I’m going to finish up this Skittle. I really love Skittles ’cause as you see they come orange and yellow, red, and purple — all of the different colors,” Gutierrez explained, as if anyone didn’t already know that.
“And they come all together in a bag, together, right?” he continued, smashing the Skittles bag together for effect. “All different colors — kind of like a rainbow — a lot of people on this side of the aisle we like that. And every now and then — sorry — I’ll get a bad Skittle and I don’t ban ’em all ’cause I get one. Cause most of the Skittles are pretty delicious. I like ’em.”
Gutierrez continued to compare Skittles to “little girls fleeing murder and rape and human bondage and torture,” of course forgetting to note that it is radical Islamists committing such act in his scenario.
It is highly unlikely that the PC Police will be outraged by Gutierrez comparing humans to Skittles, as they were Trump, Jr.’s, isn’t it? It is also improbable that media will express any displeasure as they overwhelmingly did with Trump, Jr.’s analogy.
Luis Gutierrez’s Skittle’s analogy is ridiculous on its face. He wouldn’t be munching down on those Skittles so hard if one of them were a bomb. For him to compare a Skittles flavor he doesn’t prefer to an Islamic terrorist hellbent on murdering as many Americans as possible, even if it means taking his or her own life in the process, is an insult to our intelligence.
Let’s make one of those Skittles explosive, Luis, and let’s just see how many bags you eat.
