Rachel Ray and the Doughnut Wars

I've always been more partial to Krispy Kreme when it comes to the doughnut decision, but I may have to change my mind after reading this article from Michelle Malkin. As Malkin points out, Dunkin Donuts has been one of the few companies to take a strong stand against illegal immigration in this country. Combine that with their latest decision to drop an add showing Rachel Ray in a "kefiyeh" scarf, and I may have to reconsider my allegiance in the battle for doughnut supremacy. (What is it about "donut" places and their apparently willful inability to spell?)

This may seem a little bit over the top - I can't tell if that scarf is meant to be a kefiyeh or not - but if nothing else it serves to highlight a disturbing fashion trend.
"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."
I kinda doubt that Rachel Ray is a tool of the Palestinian jihad - she may have had nothing to do with the wardrobe decision at all - but there's no denying that many celebs have recently used their choice of clothing to jump up on "Jimmah" Carter's favorite soapbox, supporting Palestinian terrorists at the expense of Israel. No doubt all the college kids will be swapping their Che Guevara t-shirts for Yassar Arafatbastard scarfs now. There's just something about murderous, anti-American thugs that inspires the liberal mind...apparently.
