This is, truly, the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time. And I occasionally read articles on the conservative "blog networks", so I hear A LOT of really stupid things.
But this is real evidence that conservative bloggerdom sees "terrorism" wherever they look.
I want you to take a good long look at the image in this post image and tell me what you see.
If you said "Rachael Ray hawking coffee" then you are clearly not a patriot, sir.
If you said "Dunkin Donuts promoting terrorism" then you may want to look for webhosting because you can leverage your slight mental disability and psychological imbalance into a spot in the glitterati of online modern conservative blabbermouths. You've got what it takes to be a leader of the Republican electronic Webbiganda 2.0 revolution.
You see, to these individuals, (namely Michelle Malkin and the always-worth-a-sad-chuckle Little Green Footballs) if you wear a scarf with a pattern, it must be a symbol of Palestinian solidarity! You're "mainstreaming terrorism." I respectfully suggest that Michelle Malkin and crew are attempting to mainstream stupidity. And I suggest they keep it within their own community where it has the best chance of thriving.
The failure of the ideas they've been screaming at us for so long has completely unhinged these shrill Alternative-History Media bozos.
These folks breathlessly huff that her scarf resembles the kaffiyeh worn by Arafat. The problem is, it really doesn't have the characteristic pattern that Arafat's scarf has. Not if you care to pay attention to that sort of thing. Not that you can really tell from the stupid ad in the first place. It appears to have a paisley pattern. And she's not wearing it on her head.
Let's, for the sake of argument, imagine that Rachael Ray were trying to promote terrorism and were really wearing a copy of Arafat's kaffiyeh. Do you think people seeing this image would get the message that people should fight for Palestinians? Inane. Even if it were true that is the stupidest plan hatched since "wide stance" was used as an excuse for trolling for airport bathroom sex. And it would take someone equally stupid to detect it.
It looks to me like Rachael Ray is wearing a kind of neat paisley black-and-white scarf. LGF and Malkinites. You really expect me to believe that Dunkin Donuts and Rachael Ray have a terrorist agenda? Really? You think that they're trying to sell us revolution with our Donuts? Really? The company that gives us free iced coffee the day after a Red Sox win -- you think they want to seed our minds with terrorist thoughts? Really. Really? (Apologies to Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers and Keith Olbermann)
That grumbling sound you just heard was the last bit of your credibility as Americans passing through Dick Cheney's colon.
Dunkin Donuts, under pressure from idiots, took down the ad. Because clearly, it's terroristeriffic!
