As if you already didn’t know Michelle Malkin was looney tunes. Ever heard of the “jihad scarf controversy”? Yeah, me neither. Turns out the scarf a friend of my father brought me back from his visit the Middle East when I was in high school was a really insulting gift and not the cool thing I thought it was.
I was so young and naive. From Malkin’s piece:
I’ve been a fan of Dunkin’ Donuts for years. Their Munchkins are heaven. Their coffee is better and cheaper than Starbucks. And the company’s management has taken a brave and lonely stand in support of immigration enforcement — refusing to hire illegal aliens and blowing the whistle on applicants with bogus Social Security numbers.
So it was with some dismay that I learned last week that Dunkin’ Donuts spokeswoman Rachael Ray, the ubiquitous TV hostess, posed for one of the company’s ads in what appeared to be a black-and-white keffiyeh.
I’ll reserve comment on comparisons between Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and that found at Starbucks. You shouldn’t buy/drink either if you can avoid it. And by “avoid” I mean “not prisoner in some fucking airport and all there fucking is here is Starbucks” avoid.
As for their “brave and lonely stand support of immigration enforcement”, isn’t that sort of think enforced by law these days? Oh yeah, I forgot Michelle likes to swing for the fence with this shit. She’s 100% water carrier, that one. We’re supposed to be surprised that a company of that size would like to avoid the legal implications (not to mention political embarrassment) of knowing hiring illegals? Oh, they’re fucking saints over there at the corporate headquarters.
Of course, all this begs the question does Dunkin’ Donuts really think its customers could mistake Rachael Ray for a terrorist sympathizer?
The answer, apparently, is yes.
Here is a screen shot of the advertisement in question.
Here comes the looney:
The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant (and not so ignorant) fashion designers, celebrities and left-wing icons.
Anything scarfy that is whiteish with any type of dark pattern printed no it, worn in any fashion about the head, neck or shoulders is supporting terrorism. Yeah. A bit of a stretch.
Sorta like saying I can’t wear blue or red because of the crips and bloods. And all sports related clothing is out too, because some guy wore a Chicago Bulls hat when he committed a violent crime.
I guess facial hair, wrist watches and brown wool jackets in a military cut are out too? Good thing I took the time to shave this morning. Fuck.
I love how she works in this one:
The scarves are staples at anti-Israel rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley.
Of course she has to mention San Francisco and Berkeley in a manner that suggests they are not even part of Greater America. At least she’s got it together enough to recognize her target audience.
From the Boston.com article I linked previously:
For her part, Malkin was pleased with Dunkin’s response: ‘‘It’s refreshing to see an American company show sensitivity to the concerns of Americans opposed to Islamic jihad and its apologists.’’
Thanks for that, Michelle. You’re a fucking Patriot.by
