Be afraid, be very afraid...of...a....SCARF!

Rachael Ray's Scarf Terrifies Nation!

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24860437/

Dunkin' Donuts pulled a television spot featuring talk show host and Food Network personality Rachael Ray this weekend after a Fox news commentator associated it with terrorists.
Laughable, except it really happened.

I saw this on Countdown tonight. This is ridiculous. This is the worst case of xenophobia I have ever seen. It is even worse that Duncan Donuts actually gave in and pulled the ad off the air.

We need a new amendment to the Constitution-The Freedom of Scarves Amendment!:biggrin:

Unfortunately american corporations are cowards and wont stand up for themselves if they think it may in any way hurt their profits.

So wearing a cheesy dinner jacket could suggest that one is an Iranian terrorist?

We had better hope that no terrorists wear Blue Jeans!

The kaffiyeh, Malkin wrote in a column posted online last Friday, “has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad
You must be kidding me, right? "Murderous Palestinian jihad" ?? What is wrong with you people, don't you ever rationalize your arguments? Did the West became such an phobic place that even now scarves terrify you?...And what's that Murderous Jihad this guy's talking about? The resistance to occupation? Even though I don't approve its methods but still resistance to occupation is a right granted to any people in the planet.

“I think that a right-wing blogger making an association between a kaffiyeh and terrorism is just an example of how so much of the complexity of Arab culture has been reduced to a very narrow vision of the Arab world on the part of some people in the U.S.,” Bishara said in a phone interview. “Kaffiyehs are worn every day on the street by Palestinians and other people in the Middle East — by people going to work, going to school, taking care of their families, and just trying to keep warm.”
Finally, some sane person speaks.

It’s refreshing to see an American company show sensitivity to the concerns of Americans opposed to Islamic jihad and its apologists.
That's just sad...no comment.

Too bad so many people in the world are so ignorant. I personally am embarrassed to be a US citizen when I see crap like this.

Why would Dunkin' give in to this? I doubt that there were that many people who identified the scarf with terrorism and complained. :confused:

I really don't like Rachael Ray or her lame "recipes", but this is off the wall. She couldn't cook herself out of a "best school-lunch" play-off, but she's otherwise not much of a danger to the US.

Really, Rachel Ray, clueless tv food show host or terrorist?

Ok, I must admit that what she does to food is sometimes terrifying.

But her destructive influence is confined to the dummies that are willing to try her "recipes" - as long as she doesn't branch out into ammonia and nitrogen-based fertilizers, she out to be pretty harmless (and vacuous, as always).
