Rachel Ray's Scarf Fiasco

Can this lady kill us or is her scarf giving us a secret message about a future terrorist threat? Some folks have really lost their ever-loving minds to see a terrorist threat on a scarf. SERIOUSLY!!! That’s what we get for living in a post 9-11 world. Any little thing could be used to invoke fear. Also, it shows how ignorant some Americans (specifically conservative blogger Michelle Malkin) really are.

In case you haven’t heard, the lovable (albeit annoying) host of one of Oprah’s empire, Rachel Ray and a few other shows on the Food Network got in trouble for wearing a scarf in a Dunkin Donuts ad. According to Malkin, Ray was trying to be “jihadi chic.” Malkin must be smoking some joint; now terrorist wear are considered high fashion. Also, she wrote “I hope her hate couture choice was spurred more by ignorance than by ideolology.” Hmm, Malkin, I could say the same of you with your writing.

The sad thing is Malkin generated enough buzz that Dunkin Donuts had to take down the ad. See folks, you REALLY can make a difference. However, it is a shame when you have zeal without knowledge. Such is the case with this scarf-gate.

How is Ray going to foster a terrorist attack? Pour some EVOO (for those of you who don’t know that term, that’s Rachel’s speak for Extra Virgin Olive Oil) on some fire? To all those folks up in arms about Rachel Ray’s scarf . . . GET A LIFE! And to Dunkin Donuts shivering under pressure even when they knew this criticism was unjustified, I say, GROW SOME (you know what).
