Culture Jihad at Dunkin Donuts?

Hat tip to ACT for America

Rachel Ray and her Kaffiyeh ad

Some would say that the Kaffiyeh is nothing more than a fashion statement. But it is more than that.

Cultural jihad has sunk to new lows. Now, we have Rachel Ray, the talktative morning cooking show maven sporting a Palestinain Kaffiyeh promoting summertime iced Mocha Latte at Dunkin Donuts. You know the kind of headdresses sported by the late mass murderer, Yassir Arafat. Now is the kafiiyeh "in" to the ad crowd, eh? What kind of a subliminal message is Dunkin Donuts and its ad agency trying to communicate? Further, what does it say about the political statements of uber-foodie, Ms. Ray?

I urge all to write to Dunkin' Donuts at your outrage at this. Slowly Shar'ia is thrown upon us and slowly companies submit to it. I sent the following statement to their corporate office:

I find offense that your spokeswoman Rachael Ray would be wearing a Palestinian Kaffiyeh in your ads. This support for known terrorists and murderers of innocent men, women and children is unconscionable on the part of any industry catering to the full public. By her wearing the Kaffiyeh and you showing her wearing it, shows your support for such actions.

Thus I cannot in good conscience patronize any of your establishments and will urge others to do the same. For you by this action you are a supporter of the murder of innocent people.

You can snail mail them at:

Dunkin' Donuts Consumer Care
130 Royall Street
Canton, MA 02021
Tel: 800-859-5339

It could be nothing, but the Kaffiyeh as a fashion accessory for the "Beautiful People" makes me sick. What is so fashionable about a Kassam or Grad rocket.

Yet another reason not to walk into a Dunkin' Donut. Plus Starbucks has better coffee.
