What do you see when you look at this picture from a recent Dunkin Donuts add? I'll tell you what I see: A cute haircut on a woman I deplore (if you're going to say "EVOO", just say "EVOO", don't explain what it means EVERY TIME YOU SAY IT, it defeats the purpose of an acronym), a lovely backdrop, a coffee I would probably drink. Sound about right?
You know what I don't see? A symbol of terrorism.
So, I've been looking at this story for a couple of days, now, but it was SO FUCKING STUPID, I didn't even want to grant it the dignity of recognizing it in this form. But, I changed my mind. Why? Because I found out Michelle Malkin had a part in it, and I find it necessary to expose her ridiculousness at every opportunity.
In a recent blog of hers, she wrote:
In case you don't know Michelle, she is a conservative talking head of the same, horrific caliber as Man Coulter or Limbaugh (actually, I don't find Limbaugh as offensive as either of these gorgons).Charles Johnson notes, and many readers have e-mailed about, Dunkin Donutsí spokeswoman Rachel Rayís clueless sporting of a jihadi chic keffiyeh in a recent DD ad campaign. Iím hoping her hate couture choice was spurred more by ignorance than ideology.
For those who aren't familiar with "keffiyeh", here's Yasser Arafat sportin' his:
Yes, it's true that the keffiyeh is a standard headdress in the Arab world. True, also, is the fact that activists have kind of usurped the keffiyeh as a symbol or solidarity or recognition for the Palestinian plight. Still...
You know who is helping the terrorists win? MALKIN. By associating actions as innocent as RR's with hate and terrorism, she is lending credence to the movements she claims to oppose and drawing media attention to said cause when there is absolutely no need. I mean, seriously? I know Malkin's no Stanford grad, but are she and her minions really so stupid as to actually believe that Rachel was taking some political stand by rockin' this scarf? RR's stylist didn't associate it with hate. The director and camera man shooting the commercial didn't associate it with hate. Not a single motherfucker who reviewed the commercial before it was aired thought, "OMG! Look at that Arab-lovin' whore! We must reshoot!" But Malkin and her minions gladly created something out of nothing, and were SO successful, the commerical actually got pulled.
...and we give the Alex Jones/9-11 Truth movement such a hard time. At least they don't have any sway!
Godfuckingdamnit. Here it is, Friday morning, and I've gone and gotten myself all worked up. I can't stand this cunt-mouthed hag.
Oh, and in case you need a reason to hate her as much as I do? She actually wrote an entire book defending the internment of Japanese citizens during WWII and advocating the use of racial profiling in regard to the War on Terror.
