Dunkin’ Donuts recently unveiled an ad featuring television personality Rachael Ray, holding a latte, standing in front of blooming trees. Ray, however, is wearing a scarf, and for conservatives, a scarf is never just a scarf. Michelle Malkin noted that the scarf is black and white, which she insisted meant that it looked too similar to an Arabic keffiyeh. From Malkin’s column: “It’s just a scarf, the clueless keffiyeh-wearers scoff. Would they say the same of fashion designers who marketed modified Klan-style hoods in Burberry plaid as the next big thing?”
Malkin’s cohorts quickly embraced her concerns, and there was talk of launching a boycott against Dunkin’ Donuts over the ad. This week, unwilling to take any chances against the coordinated efforts of unhinged Fox News commentators, Dunkin’ Donuts backed down and gave in.
Just a note: Michelle Malkin wrote a book called “In Defense of Internment” — defending the US’s placement of Japanese-Americans in concentration camps during WWII. Yeah, she’s a right wing loser to the MAX, dude!
