Non-Traditional Black & White Scarf = Terrorists Win

Friday, May 30, 2008

The CBC reports:

Dunkin’ Donuts has pulled an online advertisement featuring celebrity chef Rachael Ray after criticism from conservative U.S. bloggers over her choice of scarf.

Ray, while promoting an iced coffee, was wearing a black-and-white scarf, similar to the kaffiyeh, a scarf commonly worn in the Middle East. (Bold mine

Yes, that’s right folks, “similar to the kaffiyeh” not actually a kaffiyeh that folks wear over in the Palestinian region, but similar too.

Holly blogs:

Although I have to say I laughed out loud at the phrase “hate couture.” The thing is, if you look at the scarf Rachael Ray is wearing in that picture, it doesn’t even remotely resemble the pattern traditionally associated with the keffiyeh, which resembles an interlocking net or a chain-link fence. Look, here’s Yasser Arafat wearing one… a fairly iconic and well-known image. But Ray’s scarf doesn’t even have a regular geometric pattern on it.

Fuck Michelle Malkin and the right wing attack machine for attacking Rachel Ray and having their racist egos conflate a black and white scarf as akin to terrorism.  And, while I’m at it; forget Rachel Ray for apprporiating a culture and buying a scarf that “looks exotic and Arabic” but in actuality is just a scarf created by a corporation to mimic a keffiyeh.

I sport the actual PLO keffiyeh.  DOWN WITH ISRAEL!

Oh, and also.  DOWN WITH UPS! UP WITH THE TEAMSTERS! (Cause I’m also wearing my union jacket).
