Yes, folks, we have officially entered the Twilight Zone. Ahmad Khan Rahami has been captured as the mastermind behind the terror attacks that rocked New York and New Jersey over this past weekend. He is believed to have constructed both the pressure cooker and pipe bombs. It was an "intentional" act, according to NY Mayor De Blasio, who quickly emphasized that it remains to be seen if it was actually terrorism. Wut? According to the Hillary Clinton camp, it's possible Rahami was "triggered" by Donald Trump.
(I know this logic is nuts, but bear with me - this is the progressive world in which we now live.)We have a Republican nominee for president who incites hatred and violence like we’ve never seen before.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 19, 2016
While Rahami was creating havoc on the coast, Dahir Adan went on a stabbing spree in St. Cloud, Minnesota. CNN reports that Adan was in a "joyful" and "happy" mood when he went to the mall to buy the new Iphone 7. Somewhere along the way he was majorly triggered because his shopping event turned into the horrific stabbing of infidels:
The 20-year-old from St. Cloud allegedly stabbed 10 people before being shot dead by an off-duty police officer, ending what authorities called a "potential act of terrorism" at the mall Saturday.
According to police, he asked at least one person if they were Muslim and made references to Allah while carrying out the stabbings.
While an ISIS-affiliated media outlet claimed the attacker was a "soldier" of the terror group, no evidence has emerged to suggest ISIS had a hand in planning or executing the attack.The liberal mindset will tell you that these attacks are the result of hateful rhetoric. These poor men have obviously been radicalized and have simply gone off the deep end during this election cycle. And it's all Donald Trump's racist, bigoted, and xenophobic fault.
In walks Donald Trump, Jr. and the tweet/meme that shook the Internet yesterday:
To more rational thinking people, this analogy makes sense. If we are allowing refugees into America, knowing that ISIS has made explicit claims that it wants to infiltrate this exodus with jihadis hell bent on spreading the caliphate to the West, then we logically can expect some of these refugees to be poisoned by radical Islamic ideology which can be deadly.This image says it all. Let's end the politically correct agenda that doesn't put America first. #trump2016 pic.twitter.com/9fHwog7ssN— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) September 19, 2016
Bearing in mind that we've just witnessed terror attacks in three states, Jr.'s tweet simply reminds that perhaps we shouldn't admit people from a region of the world where such acts are commonplace. In other words, the poisonous Skittles are already here - should we take the chance of bringing in more? Cue the outrage:
I'd rather die eating a handful of Skittles than live a single day with @realDonaldTrump as president.#SkittlesWelcome— Neal Rogers (@nealarogers) September 20, 2016

Who else compares the needs of living, thinking people to the needs of goddamn food? 😅#Skittles #WTF https://t.co/v7cgXdPs6O
Thankfully, not all of Twitter has gone off the deep end and called out the faux outrage and hypocrisy:Get ready #America. These will be #Skittles under @realDonaldTrump administration. pic.twitter.com/RhRqUbCoU6— Tyler Gately (@tyler_gately) September 20, 2016
We've had a bombing, two attempted bombings & a stabbing attack. But candy analogy! 🙄 @BriankgambleNE— Stacey Lennox (@ScotsFyre) September 20, 2016
Hillary supporters are so desperate that they're now bashing #skittles to bash Trump. Wow.— Junson Chan (@realjunsonchan) September 20, 2016
The entirety of the Useful Idiots of the left have been STFU all weekend during all the Islamist terror attacks, & suddenly... #SKITTLES!— Leslie ن (@LADowd) September 20, 2016
Regressive leftists outraged about #Skittles comment. Not so bothered about radical Islam. *sighs*— David Vance (@DVATW) September 20, 2016
The moral of this story is, yes, the Twilight Zone is real and we have officially entered. Personally I think The Sweet Meteor of Death has it right:The first analogy was applauded and said to warrant fear. The second was called racist and fear mongering.
