Does Dunkin’ Donuts really think its customers could mistake Rachael Ray for a terrorist sympathizer? The Canton-based company has abruptly canceled an ad in which the domestic diva wears a scarf that looks like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men.
Some observers, including ultra-conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, were so incensed by the ad that there was even talk of a Dunkin’ Donuts boycott.
‘‘The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,’’ Malkin yowls in her syndicated column.
‘‘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.’’
First of all, Michelle Malkin is a fucking idiot; everyone uses "Arabic" numerals every day...guess we need to start a ban of Arabic numerals lest the enemy think that we are sympathizers! What's next? A boycott of ottomans? Gum arabic? When will the stipid end? Second of alll, Dunkin' Donuts must be run by a bunch of idiots, too. Have some balls, especially after you've already paid Rachel Ray for the spot. And gosh, just use some common sense, people.

The stupidity...it hurts my head.
