Thanks to Michelle Malkin, a ultra conservative Fox News commentator and uber-blogger, a Cooking Terrorist Paranoia was created over Rachael Ray, the domestic diva, wearing a scarf that looked like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men. Malkin described the keffiyeh as “the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad.”
Can Malkin’s paranoid post-9/11 America vigilance explain why the non-terrorist Bedouin herders wear the kaffiyeh???
Personally, Rachael Ray can launch Dunkin’ Donuts and Coffee at me anytime wearing her paisley scarf! 😀
Due to the fear of a mass boycott from the conservative blogosphere, Dunkin’ Donuts (DD) removed the Rachael Ray online ad. DD stated, “In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial.”
