Dunkin’ Donuts has pulled an ad featuring Rachael Ray after Fox commentator Michelle Malkin objected that a scarf that she was wearing resembled a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men. It appears that even clothing resembling Arab clothing is viewed as an outrageous play for terrorists seeking donuts with their coffee. With the withdrawal of the ad, it is hoped that Homeland Security will lower the risk level to taupe. The company insists that no insult was intended and insists that its stores are safe for customers to come and enjoy “old-fashion donuts” and that bastion of American strength, the Apple Fritter.
The pitch for terrorist occurred in an ad where the Food Network host wears a silk scarf with a black-and-white paisley design.
Malkin quickly saw the coded message to Al Qaeda dunkers:
“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 could not agree more; I personally find the use of checkered flags at Nascar races to be a bit too close for comfort).
There remains a question as to the future of the Dunkin’ Donut new line of Allahu AkBars — a chocolate bar with almond and crunchy center. Frankly, I am surprised that, after World War II, the company got away with Bavarian Kreme Donuts — open pandering to Arian eaters. (I will not even mention the French Crullers). The company already markets “jelly sticks” and “powdered sticks,” which is well-known favorites of the dunk-run-and-bomb crowd.
What is clear is that the Food Network will not be allowing Ray to prepare any filafels any time soon and Dunkin’ Donuts plans to dress her as a member of the Yearning for Zion Ranch (YZR) for future commercials.
