It’s now official: the bigots have taken over America. The most recent sign of this comes from Dunkin’ Donuts, who pulled a recent ad featuring Rachael Ray because of her fashion.
Low riding shorts showing her coin slot? Salciously exposing her cleavage? Nope. Her scarf offended right wingers.
Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin complained that the scarf wrapped around her looked like a kaffiyeh, the traditional Arab headdress. ”The kaffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,” Malkin wrote in her syndicated column.

Wow. I guess I must be clueless. I didn’t know that the right to free expression excluded fashion choices including ugly scarves.
And I thought it was conservatives who were always complaining about the US becoming too PC?
Alas, I’m calling on all of Los Angeles to boycott Dunkin’ Donuts. Take a stand, people!
