I swear you can't make this shit up. When I first heard this story I thought it was a joke so I was afraid to blog about it and take the risk of falling victim to a satirical spoof. But on further review, I have found it to be true. Yes, Michelle Malkin, that famous wingnut with the sharp tongue and frail physique, has taken issue with the latest ad. campaign from Donkin Donuts.
Seems Rachel Ray, to the shock and horror of all of our wingnut friends, decided to wear a "keffiyeh" in her promotional ad. for the rather large coffee chain. "Jihad Chic", "hate couture" she [Michelle] is calling it. What is the republic coming to when people can actually get away with wearing this stuff? What will they do next, wear Fidel style shirts or smoke Cuban cigars? Folks if we are not careful, before we know it, this country that we love so much will fall to the influences of those evil folks on the left. People who want to bring us down and tear down the very fabric of our democracy.....And to think this all started with the sale of some donuts.
I honestly do not know where this came from. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about all things ideological and political that goes on around me. But this one kind of came out of nowhere. I guess I shouldn't be surprised though, the wingnuts will find anything to rally around these days. Lord knows they need a cause. Things have been better for my friends on the right.
"Ahhh come on field, don't you do the same thing when you see negative and stereo typical images used in the media to portray black people? " Not quite the same thing. Now if I did an entire post ranting about the cones (the same shape as Klan hoods) that the road crews use during highway construction because they want to send negative subliminal messages to black motorist, then you would have a point. I mean that is the only analogy I can use to compare to Michelle's ridiculous stretch. Of course some of Hillary's people have been saying the same thing about you Obamaholics lately; that you are making some serious and questionable connections between what goes on this political season, and attaching some nefarious intentions to it to hurt the "O" man. Sorry Hillary lovers, I am not buying that either. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.
Sorry wingnuts, this one ain't quacking, and it sure as hell doesn't look like a duck to me.
