Off-Topic: Nazi who originated Donald Trump Jr.'s Skittles metaphor was hanged
The Intercept's Naomi LaChange presents the curious origins of
Donald Trump Jr.'s tweet comparing Syrian refugees to poison
Skittles. "The concept dates back at least to 1938 and a
children's book called Der Giftpilz, or The Toadstool, in
which a mother explains to her son that it only takes one Jew
to destroy an entire people."

So often when the Family Trump (originally in Germany it was "Drumpf" as
we know) opens their mouths, they invoke Nazi imagery to gladden the
hearts of their thuggish white supremacist supporters. It just happens
again and again and again. Yes, The Deplorables. It can't be accidental.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
