By comparison our flag is just a piece of cloth with some colors on it. Way to go Beagle comparing Americans to Terrorists. I suggest the Beagle use the checkerd pattern behind the title on the front page if it is such a laughing matter. This is why I'll never spend dime one on your fish wrap.

Sharon, the only person in America who had a relative die in war. This gives you the right to bad mouth every one who you don't agree with? You are truly the ignorant one with your hateful posts. Remember before you call someone on their inornace, you might want to try to figure out how to use spell check, and preview your posts. Then you can cry and whine, like a pregnant dog, all you want.

Unless you're suggesting a Stetson or fedora is also a flag "by comparison," it is a bad comparison. The Taliban and al Qaeda say women must wear burkas and can't wear Western clothing while the Western right wing wingnuts say women can't wear a scarf resembling Mideastern men's clothing. Now there is your comparison.

I don't care what people wear. A symbol is a symbol. If you want to look like an Islamofascist fine I'll know who to avoid when I see you walking down the street. It's not just the conservatives that are upset about people wear the kaffiyeh for fashion.

I didn't see anything in those articles saying it's not just the right-wing fanatics. I saw that some people were upset but not that they weren't right-wing fanatics while many saw it just as a fahion trend.

I saw this:

"She said the so-called "desert scarf" had become a recent fashion craze in Australia, following a similar trend in the US about a year ago that started after celebrities including Jude Law and the Mary Kate Olsen were seen wearing one."

And this:

"In Australia, versions of the keffiyeh were available at popular fashion retailers, including General Pants, Cotton On and Tree of Life, Hunt said. But retailers said they often sold out of the scarf, she said."

And this:

"Critics, including conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, complained that the scarf appeared to be traditional garb worn by Arab men. The ad's critics say such scarves have come to symbolise Muslim extremism and terrorism."

And this:

"NSW Jewish Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff said the wearing of the keffiyeh as a fashion item was a "non-issue".

"It's a non-issue as far as we are concerned. If someone chooses to wear such an item for whatever reason that's their choice."

As someone who is pro-Israel, I tend to agree with the last quote too.

Well, the quotes summed up your articles, so you're welcome. Feel free to "cherry pick" some quotes from your own sources that show it's not just the right wing fanatics who are freaking out and hiding under their beds over Rachel Ray's scarf of mass destruction, which is what you said you were providing me information on.

I'll let you cherry pick quotes. But don't you dare presume to put words in my mouth. If you didn't get the gist of the whole first article then you didn't get it. I can't spoon feed you. You have your mommy for that.

I thought dittoheads left the touchy feely fashionista stuff to the "libtards." I guess Malkin and Nannystate are just another in a long line of hypocrites.

Translation:

"I have no proof of my claims that it's not just the right-wing mujahideen scared of an article of clothing."

Now THAT was putting words in your mouth. The ideas were yours but the words were mine. The other post I wasn't putting words in your mouth. I copied and pasted words from your source. All very accurate. But, I must admit that the "But don't you dare presume to..." was quite dramatic. A bit over the top for the situation but a good use of drama and I applaud your acting skills.

If you went to the trouble to search and post links to articles supposedly proving your point I doubt you'd have a problem posting something, anything from any of the articles backing your claim. Unless their is nothing in yur sources to back up your claim. Now that would make sense why you suddenly decided to stop backing up your own point.

Huh? What the frick are you talking about?
Look like an Islamofascist all you want. I think it is either poor taste or ignorance why someone would put one on. How does that make me a hypocrite?
You know what's hypocritical is the feminazi libtards sticking for these cultures that cover their women in bags. Well actually I've seen some of the women on the left, maybe that's why they side with Islamofascists.

WOW you really are an idiot. I know those are quotes from the articals.

Just like these:

"Shevonne Hunt, a freelance journalist who has reported on the keffiyeh's popularity in Australia, said many Palestinians were annoyed the widespread use of the keffiyeh for fashion had watered down its meaning."

"Many Palestinians are now actually annoyed because it's lost its power, it's lost its impact."

Now sit down and shut the f up.

Excellent. And yet this self-important "brat" still hasn't backed up her claim that it's not just the right-wing whackos who are upset. I see nothing in those quotes that said anything about them not being from the right. But apparently you do? LOLOLOLOL. Apparently the cliche is wrong. A mind is a wonderful thing to waste.
Still no proof. Just claims. Typical conservative strategy.

Oh so now you have to twist things and nit pick. With how you are trying to frame things I can say I never talked about right wing wackos.

Twist things and nit picking by asking you to supply proof of your claim? Where did it say that those people weren't from the right.
That's as logical as making the claim that Jack the Ripper didn't just kill women because men all over the world were killed during the 1800s.

I feel sorry you have such a small mind you can't grasp subtleties.

Perhaps my mistake was typing:

"It's not just the conservatives that are upset about people wear the kaffiyeh for fashion."

If I had phrased it this way
"It's not just the American conservatives that are upset about people wear the kaffiyeh for fashion, it's the Palestinians too."
Would your panties be in less of a bunch and not have fixated on such a minute detail?
