Dunkin Dumbass

Malkin:

Sigh. You all know I’ve been a fan of Dunkin Donuts for quite some time–and have touted their strong position in favor of immigration enforcement.

Charles Johnson notes, and many readers have e-mailed about, Dunkin Donuts’ spokeswoman Rachel Ray’s clueless sporting of a jihadi chic keffiyeh in a recent DD ad campaign. I’m hoping her hate couture choice was spurred more by ignorance than ideology.

Is Ray’s blunder worth boycotting DD over?

You go for it, Michelle! I say you fire up a national boycott of Dunkin Donuts based around the organizing principle that… a celebrity wore a scarf in a commercial.

THIS. IS. WHY. THE. MCCAIN. CAMP. IS. IGNORING. YOU.

    Hate couture? Why have I not been informed? I liek couture.

    Is Ray’s blunder worth boycotting DD over?

    Is she serious?

    The people have gone off the deep end so hard they’re going to be wandering in the wildness of irrelevancy for the next forty years.

    The stupid…it hurts!

    On another note – just got back from visiting my staunch conservative friends in the backwoods of SC (well, used to be backwoods…it’s rapidly turning into a suburb of Charlotte). They were staunch Bush supporters until the immigration thingie and since then have seen the late are now very unhappy with the current state of their party. This past weekend they are openly boasting that they (and everyone they know) are going to vote for Bob Barr come election time this November.

    Don’t know how much that applies to the state as a whole but I don’t think McCain has a real strong grip on the traditional Southern base. Just thought I’d share it for what its worth.

    I’m so tired of her “it would be irresonsible NOT to speculate” pieces of bullshit. All she’s doing on her site is egging on those people who loathe anything that is different from them, all while maintaining an innocent “Who, me? But it was just a little joke!” façade.

    Could be nothing or could be something that threatens our children and our way of life. Just to be safe get me a full countertop, a verifiable Blood Equity Index and go back to, say, the 4th grade, up to the present day and look for any references to hoummous, baba ganoush, Turkish Delight (note: the candy, not the Larry Craig type) and Arak (not Iraq). Important: leave out falafel.

    What is really sad here is that the scarf is not a Kefiyyah, which has a specific pattern and is made of cotton. The Rachel “I’m too lazy to cut tofu” Ray scarf is a paisley job made of silk.

    The whole issue was on ‘Atlas Shrugs’ two weeks ago, and it was thoroughly ridiculed then. Now it is recycled by Malkin… sad, really. Malking and Hillary are circling aroung the curved universe of stupidity and meeting in a black hole of suckitude.

    “hate couture” is clearly a play on “haute couture,” which is a French term that can only be used by high-end design firms licensed by the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Paris.

    You’re Canadian, you don’t understand the nuance of today’s American Wingnut Warrior. This Michelle post simply follows one of the many how-to chapters in the Wingnut Masturbation 101 Bible.

    Dipshit A writes whatever brain dead bullshit breezes through above their shoulders. This technique requires a caveat like “Maybe I’m seeing this wrong and too negatively.” Dipshit Chorus B then jumps tearfully bleating “No, No, NO!, it really is a secret conspiracy to unravel America handing it to the terrorists. Unlike the evildoers, you’re being naive and innocent Dipshit A!”

    In that masturbation technique, the chorus provides the strokes until all participants are spent. It’s sex for wingnuts.

    Jim says:

    My God, the comments are priceless. One of the saner types had this to say:

    “tropicalwave12 said: I sometimes wonder if we are overreaching reactionaries.”

    to which, some brownshirt replied:

    “Nope – just cautious. As anyone with law enforcement background, and anyone who has been in the military for any length of time, will tell you, if it looks out of place, check it out. If there’s nothing out of order, no harm, no foul. [Papers please, may I see your papers]

    But situational awareness demands that you notice everything, no matter how trivial it might seem. [Including, no doubt, the type of countertops every recipient of public aid may have]

    And, as MM indicated, this doesn’t mean an immediate boycott of DD, just give the management the benefit of the doubt.”

    Reading crap like this, and then reflecting on the fact that the Doughy Pantload writes an entire book linking liberals with fascism, makes me wonder what bizzaro world I’ve fallen into where up is down and the sky is green.

    In San Francisco the donut shop business is controlled by the Cambodians. First and second-generation immigrants. I wonder if corporate headquarters for Dunkin Donuts is eyeing westward expansion and sees the immigrant community as a threat to their growth.

    If Dunkin wants a part of the West Coast they’re gonna have to make better coffee. I saw Bear Grylls on the African plain looking for sources of water. He grabbed an elephant turd, held it high, and squeezed and drank the brown liquid and I thought, “Jeez, Dunkin Donuts coffee, even on the African Savanna.”

    While I agree this is ridiculous because her scarf looks simply like a scarf, I’d like to play the devel’s advocate. We must remember symbols have always represented an important part of all cultures throughout time. Had Rachel Ray worn a swastika arm band or white hood the world would have been appalled. I am amazed that certain forms of dress have become en vogue. As an expatriate from the U.S. it disturbs me that we can be so insensitive especially after 911 and I can only attribute this to ignorance. For many of us living elsewhere in the world, we see up close what these symbols represent. These organizations and governments actively support the suppression of women, the banning of freedom of religion and speech, and the tacit acceptance of violence against innocent human beings all in the name of a cause or belief. Have we become so P.C. that we refuse to tell the truth or are we somehow hoping that our own human/democratic values are also shared by all? Read, listen and observe. Actions always speak louder than words. Remember, symbols are powerful messages!

You all know I’ve been a fan of Dunkin Donuts for quite some time–and have touted their strong position in favor of immigration enforcement. Charles Johnson notes, and many readers have e-mailed about, Dunkin Donuts’ spokeswoman Rachel Ray’s clueless sporting of a jihadi chic keffiyeh in a recent DD ad campaign. I’m hoping her hate couture choice was spurred more by ignorance than ideology. Is Ray’s blunder worth boycotting DD over? You go for it, Michelle! I say you fire up a national boycott of Dunkin Donuts based around the organizing principle that… a celebrity wore a scarf in a commercial. […]

  3. […] Update: Former (therefore sane) Republican John Cole brings teh funny on this very topic. Michelle is one weird dudette. Rachel Ray and Dunkin Donuts? Try to look harder for the creeping Islamfacism destined to take over our country, Michelle. There has to be a t-ball game someplace where the ump gave the benefit of the doubt to a Mexican.
