Don't Do it Dunkin

I hate it when corporate America succumbs every time a xenophobic Noe-conservative right wing wackjob squeaks.

It started early this week when TV show host Rachel Ray appeared in a Dunkin' Donuts TV ad, wearing a silk scarf that looks like an Arab koffeiya.

Michelle Malkin, a crazy nutcase who's runs here own blog website that is blocked here in the UAE (no surprise there!), commenced a fierce barrage bashing Ray's attire and going to the extend of calling to boycott the doughnut company.

‘‘The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,’’ Malkin yowled in her column. Sadly, Dunkin' Donuts pulled out the ads.

Well guess what you ignorant moronic whore, 1. For Arabs, especially in GCC area, wearing the Keffieyah (also known as Ghotra) is formal wear. Just like wearing suits for Europeans and Westerners. And 2. The Keffiyeh has been a fashion high street accessory item for some time now.

I don't know which hole were you hiding at all this time, but I hope you crawl back right into it and spare humanity your nonsense drivel.

  • Reminds me of a Sinfest comic (check them out, they're hilarious, esp the old ones). In the comic, God looks at stupidity like this, and says "Judgment Day!"

  • Barak Allah Feek ya Moryarti.. wallah you took the words out of my mouth. I read this news about the Drunken Donuts the other day and it made me seriously mad. But also seriously sad about the ignorance of your average Joe in the USA. I wish it was compulsory for every school kid in the USA to spend a week in the UAE.

  • I agree she's ignorant, Moryati. But don't call her a whore - you're being dragged down to the same level.
