Michelle Malkin’s Victory Over Doughnut Terrorists

Another big victory for Michelle Malkin over the forces of terrorism!

Dunkin’ Donuts recently released an ad featuring celebrity chef Rachael Ray. Innocent enough, right?

Terror sleuth and columnist Michelle Malkin discovered the hidden message in the ad – a message meant to offer support for the “murderous Palestinian jihad.”

In the ad, Ray wears a scarf around her neck and holds an iced coffee. Malkin, complained that the scarf looked similar to the black-and-white checkered kaffiyeh, the traditional Palestinian scarf. Malkin explained:

The kaffiyeh “has come to symbolise murderous Palestinian jihad. 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.”

Dunkin’ Donuts told AP the scarf had a paisley design, and was selected by a stylist for the advertising shoot. “Absolutely no symbolism was intended,” the company said.

But the Dunkin’ Donuts ad was pulled because “the possibility of misperception detracted from its original intention to promote our iced coffee,” the Associated Press reported.

Malkin savored her victory with a cup of 7-11 coffee, since she had earlier given the axe to Starbuck’s.

In her victory statement, Malkin declared: “It’s refreshing to see an American company show sensitivity to the concerns of Americans opposed to Islamic jihad and its apologists.”

  1. curious how old is her pic on her own the web page next to those BIG donuts .
    going by your pic ( probably a recent one ? ) she sure has been eating a lot of them :)
    and dulling her few functioning brian cells ( i really doubt she [ and likes of jonah goldberg } has many .

  2. I wish someone could sic Malkin on the rubber clog craze in the US. I gave away more footwear (runners and boots) than I ate fatburgers at the KBR chow hall; 90% of the locals were wearing 2 dollar plastic sandals, and some looked EXACTLY like what I was seeing when I returned to the states. Every time I see someone wearing these “clogbers” I want to say to the person “Salaam alaikum”, and ask him or her to join me for tea.

    1. How bright you appear James Lloyd. Who are to decide what footwear somebody else chooses?
      Are you the new Bushite footwear nazi?
      You probably dress like a homeless psycho-path, why dont you post your pic, so we readers
      can analyze your appearance????

    1. No. The “…stupidest person alive today…” would be the person(s) who believe and act upon what people like Malkin say – which is the reason people like Malkin say what they say. Their power is in getting others to react. In this case, the people at Dunkin Donuts are the stupidest people alive today.

      1. Perfectly stated! I simply marvel at the fact that this woman’s puerile drivel is still published by “respectable” media outlets. More insipid (and sadder) still is that even on those rare occasions when Malkin demonstrates some actual grasp of and insight into the subject of her columns, she quickly veers off into the realm of demagoguery and paranoia, thus shredding what precious little stopped-clock credibility she actually has. But, hey, when FAUX News cashiers you, you know you’ve hit rock bottom.

  3. She must have an awful lot of time on her hands, maybe she should think about signing up for military service and fight some of the real wars she keeps promoting ?.

  4. I’m not sure if Malkin’s expertise is limited to being a terror sleuth. Her vapid concerns about Total Donut Awareness mean she could be a cop! But I’m not sure if donuts can be heated by tasers. Any experts out there?

  5. Holy friggin’ sh*t. Michelle Malkin has now totally, completely, absolutely lost her friggin’ mind. (Or whatever it was she had to lose.)

    First she publishes a book advocating rounding up all the Muslims into concentration camps, and now she’s seeing celebrity jihad sympathizers in Dunkin’ Donut ads. (Crazy conspiracy theories, anyone?) How is it even possible that anyone is taking this lunatic seriously anymore?

    I guess her loyal readers must be at least as batsh*t insane as she is, if not more so.

  6. Wow. And to think I used to enjoy reading her articles over at CapMag.com. She was so much better when she stuck to skewering political correctness idiocies, but now it appears HER OWN political correctness is making a mockery of herself. Pathetic.

  7. Yeah, she’s a freak, as is her website, her video blog site (HotAir) and those who cling to her every word.

    Gotta hand it to her, though, she hung tough at Berkley a couple years ago when the doors to the room she was speaking in were being continually slammed against by lefty numskulls who’d have torn her apart … in the name of democracy and human rights, no doubt.

  8. Michelle Malkin is correct to point out the “hidden message”.

    Don’t you guys know about the connection between Dunkin’ Donuts and Saudi Arabia via the Carlyle Group and Bush Family?

  9. To whom are we to compare Michelle Malkin, Axis Sally or Tokyo Rose? An argument could be made for either depending on whether its ideology or both ideology and appearance that you prefer. Assuming that they don’t impose marshall law before the election, or after it prior to January 20, 2009, the Regime can always find Michelle air-time as a kind of resistance figure after Obama takes office. There she will be playing Happy Days Are Here Again and regaling the overwhelmingly Democratic Congress with taunts about their wives having lovers in their absence back home. But truth be known, there’s no one really quite comparable to Michelle. She’s in a class all by herself.

        1. She totally does! No wonder she’s so hypervigilant; it’s “small dog syndrome”.

        2. Ya gotta see her picture in Conservative Chronicle. It can’t be all airbrush magic.

  10. just because of this, i am going to start going back to dunkin donuts. i used to be there every morning, but then i sort of lost track of it for a while. dunkin donuts is a shining example of what is actually great about this country. coffee and deep fried goodness at an affordable price.

  11. I wish to shoot my éclair on her rips and spank her muffin with my stir stick

  12. The irony of this of course is that the founder of Duncan Donuts was none other than William Rosenberg, an orthodox Jew and a fervent supporter of the Likud party in Israel (Rosenberg died in 2002). You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

    1. Knowledge of that fact ought to induce fits of schizophrenic rage in Michelle, but I doubt that will happen. After all, we’re talking about someone who excoriates the nation’s lax immigration policy on a daily basis, with a fury that makes one think it’s a deliberate personal assault on dear ol’ Michelle. OTOH, she absolutely ADORES the Bushtard and brooks no criticism of him from anyone, for any reason, clearly failing to realize that her idol and brainbrother wholeheartedly endorses and condones the very illegal immigration “plague” that is apparently the bane of her existence. I give up!

  13. I guess you all missed the gutless response of Dunkin Donuts in responding to this nonsense. What a bunch of pansies! One idiotic criticism from a stone loony and they flush an expensive ad right down the toi toi….

    COWARDS!!!!! I’m stickin’ with Starbucks!

  14. With all due respect, Michelle Malkin stories are distractions that are unworthy of this site.

    Please don’t become Crooks and Liars or similar.

    1. On the contrary, it’s exactly by interfering with free expression in such trivial matters as this that Israel and its fanatical American supporters show the vast reach and pervasiveness of their power to shape what Americans are allowed to see and hear (excepting those who vigorously undertake to learn the truth, who will always be a tiny minority).

      The guardians of Israel monitor all aspects of our popular culture and mainstream media, not just the “news”, strictly speaking. It’s a total marketing environment in which we are immersed, every hour of the day, and in which nothing dissonant with the pro-Israel, anti-Arab message is allowed to penetrate.

      This is how they seek to guarantee that the informed minority will be treated as incomprehensible misfits and cranks.

      1. Yes, no public figure will even acknowlege the stories of Rachel Corrie or the Five Dancing Israelis.

        1. Yep. Living in this bubble, where we’re not even allowed to form a sympathetic impression of a Palestinian scarf, we know that even bringing up such subjects in conversation with “normal” people is likely to get us removed from the guest list for future dinner parties. “Who wants to sit next to this crazy person? Such a downer!”

  15. No more Dunkin’ Donuts for me. Talk about a juvenile reaction! Now, they deserve a boycott.

  16. Speaking of terrorists:

    http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Gingrich_Bush_should_have_allowed_attack_0529.html

    The Raw Story
    Gingrich quips Bush should have allowed some ‘reminder’ attacksDavid Edwards and Muriel Kane
    Published: Thursday May 29, 2008

    …”This is … one of the great tragedies of the Bush administration,” Gingrich continued. “The more successful they’ve been at intercepting and stopping bad guys, the less proof there is that we’re in danger. And therefore, the better they’ve done at making sure there isn’t an attack, the easier it is to say, ‘Well, there never was going to be an attack anyway.’ And it’s almost like they should every once in a while have allowed an attack to get through just to remind us.”…

    1. Thanks for the link.

      At one point one would have counted Gingrich as at least average intelligence, thus a comparative genius as far as Congress goes, and that despite his adherence to the mountebank Toffler.

      Footsie with his new tootsie must have gone to his head.

      He is now obviously simply mimicking the Neo-Cons. A pity. Clinton brought up the sun everyday. Bush keeps herds of African elephant out of the continental US.

      Anyway, Toffler is now also looking quite silly–here’s the blurb for his latest book:

      Social analysts Alvin and Heidi Toffler turn their attention to the revolution in wealth now sweeping the planet. This book is about how tomorrow’s wealth will be created, and who will get it and how. But 21st-century wealth, they argue, is not just about money, and cannot be understood in terms of industrial-age economics. They write about everything from education and child rearing to Hollywood and China, from everyday truth and misconceptions to what they call our “third job”–the unnoticed work we do without pay for some of the biggest corporations. In earlier work, they coined the word “prosumer” for people who consume what they themselves produce. Here they expand the concept to reveal how many of our activities–parenting, volunteering, blogging, painting our house, improving our diet, organizing a neighborhood council–pump “free lunch” from the “hidden” non-money economy into the money economy that economists track.–From publisher description.

      Some future. I have not read it, but I suspect the future of futurists who do not dwell on elemental concepts, like the relation of oil and currency, is comparatively bleak without a bottomless substrate of Greater Fools.

      Incidentally, “prosumer” is also a fraud and not original–Henry Ford’s “Finance Capitalism”, or Fincap in Bucky Fuller’s phrase, had the concept down. Ford workers were paid relatively high wages not only to ensure no unions but also so that they could buy, at considerable premium, the autos they were producing.

      But Ford was also a genius at being ahead of the curve as a state capitalist. He knew he needed highways to sell autos, so he convinced the US Federal government to build them for him, at tax payer’s expense, and for “National Security”, in the form of the interstate highway system.

      McGovern, on the other hand, was a voice in the wilderness crying for a new rail system.

    2. Gee, Newt, you’re such a trusted neocon now, you can probably breeze through security anywhere in Washington.

      I’ll bet you could smuggle a bomb into any building in the capital real easy.

      Isn’t it your patriotic duty to try and blow something up, restoring America to the proper level of fear?

  17. Instead of having its money wasted by the psychotic complaints of a kook, Dunkin’ Donuts should have just called her crazy and said no sensible person would ever read that message into the ad.

    Malkin is a thorough bigot.

  18. In an underreported story Malkin allegedly attacked several children with a broom, screaming “Beat it, you jihadist scum!” Seems the kiddies were playing tic tac toe with black ink on white paper, and the scribbled-over pages looked just like the kaffiyeh’s patterns. When told that it was just papers, Malkin reportedly huffed and said that the terrorists used paper cutters to take over airplanes, “so there!”

  19. Democracy with consequences, just like it used to be in the previous Evil Empire!

    1. Those kind of head scarves are not popular in Iran btw. Iranian sheikhs like their turban like headgear.

  20. As a sign of the rapid declining state of the U.S. demagogues like Malikin would have such influnce.I remember some times ago some store or stores were foeced to stop silling the same garment.Let’s send a massage to Malikin and her parteners in crime by wearing the garment as many people in Europe have been doing!

  21. What Ms. Malkin requires is a lengthy stay in a one of those abandoned Internment Camps in the Great Basin . What Dunkin Donuts needs is a set of cajones.

    Just today we hear that the Gazan Palestinians awarded Fulbright Scholarships will see them revoked and given to others because Israel will not let them travel . These Fulbright scholarships are the best thing we could be doing to promote peace and understanding but instead, we get an American Corporation worth mondo cash caving to a two-bit snarling pundit because she traffics in fairy tales and horror stories that actually move a large segment of the “low information voter” population.

    At some point, the mugged American populace will wake up to the fact that they are willingly led by a sadistic bunch of Neo-Trotsky K Street/Media Corporatists who make their living rubbing the G Spot of the Scotch-Irish Ass-Whuppin Set while leading the Apocalyptics around like an Ox on a Nose Ring. By then , unfortunately, the till will be emptied and there will be a nationwide chorus of stymied “Why Me’s?”.

    1. Yeah. She’s at the Tammy Faye Baker level of unparodiableness — the big difference being that Tammy Faye was actually a really nice person.

  22. 9-11 was a total inside job anyway, just educate yourself and find out…It’s all been a psy-op to manipulate the American people..-and it worked.

  23. Rachel Ray is a Hal Ka’da sleep-in cell! Gosh darn it I knew there was sometin wrong with dat O’Summer Bun Lidan cake recipe!

    1. Why not? Next stop studying law with John Yoo at Berkeley–isn’t he serious? With a bit of thought and the right fee, he could likely come up with an argument for arresting and torturing anyone wearing paisley, right?

      Impeach or don’t impeach–the rest is all a diversion.

    1. Speaking of terrorists, pastries, and politics, what would Malkin have made of the bismarcks? Not to mention people making rhubarbs over bars that are cruller and meaner than long johns? Perhaps she’d identify with the eclair de lunatic.

      1. This illustrates the shallowness of a great number of Americans.You just have to listen the radio talk shows to realise that you are listening to parrots repeating over and over the same nonesense from freedom fries to this.

  24. Doughnuts will now be called Liberty Pastries.

    Maybe somebody should just fly Malkin to some Bedouin camp in Saudi Arabia and stick her into a Burqa, maybe then she won’t open her mouth and make an idiot of herself.

  25. Here are Dunkin’ Dounts International loactions in countries where the scarf is woren:

    Saudi Arabia,UAE,Qatar,Lebanon,And some in Indonesia,Malyasia,Pakistan,and Turkey!Maybe would terrorist is working there!

  26. The Kaffiyeh is fashion. You can buy them at Dillards or any other major outlet. The young lady is stylish, not a terrorist. Since we have been occupying middle eastern countries some of their culture will obviously spill over into ours. I guess a “falafal” in Malkins warped mind would be terrorist food. Not to mention that most Jews in Israel eat them regularly. Malkin could work on her face. Its enough to turn a person to stone. Leave the attractive donut lady alone.

    1. Actually, a lot of Israelis were the kaffiyeh, also.

      It’s pretty frightening that somebody like Malkin has the power to force a major corporation to cease doing something which would be an incredibly minor offense against Israel even if it weren’t totally imaginary.

      Israel’s fanatical “supporters” have such power in America. I just do not understand it. I think Israel’s power over us must ultimately come from some bizarre anomaly in ourselves, in our collective psyche. They have this power because we give them this power. It’s like a mass neurosis.

  27. One would think with all the real problems in the world (starvation, global warming, pandemics, and actual terrorism) that the gloryhounds of the world could find something that was actually important to get disgruntled over.

  28. This blog Is very informative , I am really pleased to post my comment on this blog . It helped me with ocean of knowledge so I really belive you will do much better in the future . Good job web master .
