This has got to be the lamest, most tenuous link that the right-wing crazies have come up with in recent memory.

'Revive Terri' might be the only cause of the wingnuts stupider than this one.

Begone with you fools (Malkin, Coulter, et al)

Shame on Dunkin' Donuts for caving..

What will the right wing idiots think of next? This borders on hysteria. Don't they have something normal they can talk about?

Is the sky Falling? Only another extremest would see something sinister in a scarf. Note to Malkin: get a life!

Why don't these fools talk about the real issues affecting the United States? A lying president, an unnecessary war, environmental destruction, loss of jobs to corporate greed, health care needs, etc. A scarf that has no connection to anything other than a style preference is not an issue that I give a hoot about.

What idiots Malkin and her merry band of cyberstalkers are. Congratulations morons, you succeeded in banning Paisley! I'm sure Americans will sleep better at night knowing that Stalkin' Malkin has singlehandedly disrupted the super secret, fabric pattern communications networks of evil "Islamofascists".

I have noticed that in all the terrorist videos and pictures, they are also wearing shirts and pants. I think we should, in keeping with the spirit of Michelle Malkin's comments, stop wearing shirts and pants. They also carry guns, we should stop carrying guns. They smoke cigarettes and drink coffee, so we should stop that. Pita bread and hummus, Kebobs... Oh wait, they drink milk... They always seem to have beards, we have to go for the clean shaven look too now. What else, hmmmmm....

These people are just getting stupid. Someone should tell Michelle Malkin that it's a f'ing scarf, not the PLO flag, you moron!!!

I just don't get the reason to wear a scarf and drink iced coffee.

One only needs to consider the source. Michele Malkin should get a guide dog - the only similarities between Rachel Ray's scarf and Arafat's headdress is the color. Should we also ban black and white?

Shame on Dunkin Donuts for caving in to such histrionics.

I'm generally to the right of the political spectrum, but I must agree, this is about as stupid as it gets, even worse than some of the stuff Al Sharpton and Keith Olbermann come up with.

Oh so now Michelle Malkin is the self appointed fashion police - give me a break - of ALL the important things we have to worry about in this country right now this is SO far down on the list it's laughable - she has become the female version of Bill O'Reilly - Michelle - get a life !!! Most European women always wore scarves - Sophia Loren, Kim Novak - all made them fashionable LONG before the Middle Eastern women hit the spotlight - by accident I might add ! Did Mother Theresa look like a terrorist to you too ??

You’re right. Let’s change the topic to something the left is more comfortable discussing such as how 9/11 was a Bush conspiracy.

Call it ridiculous but ads are carefully staged. The real purpose? Hard to say. But I wouldn't blow off the Muslim angle. You'd be surprised how many companies are trying to slip Muslim friendly messages in so they, not you, do not become the victims of religious angst.
And there you have it. This is the kind of mental midget that people like Malkin pander to, and it is the reason someone like her who really has nothing but ignorance to offer still gets any attention. "Muslim friendly?" So what if it is considered friendly to Muslims? Get a clue - terrorists come in all shapes and sizes, and plenty of them are CHRISTIANS as well as MUSLIMS, you dolt! If you'd open your eyes and realize that, you might learn something once in a while. It's so sad that Americans would rather accept the easy story than the truth. You probably don't even realize that many Muslims are white. This is an embarrassing, yet typical example of what the hardcore rightwingers have done to this once proud nation.

This is so dumb. Everyone knows Dunkin Donuts caters to the Lutheran third sacrament of coffee and donuts. The only thing Muslim about Dunkin Donuts is the people who work in the stores. What normal person would look at Rachael's scarf and automatically assume she is a terrorist operative? This country is so taken by xenophobia and paranoia. Med schools need to turn out more psychiatrists and fewer plastic surgeons.

Are you fricken kidding me? People have nothing else better to do than to bitch about stupid crap and find the littlest things wrong.

Next? Payless commercials to be completely removed because in some asian countries, its rude and insulting to show someone the bottom of your foot.
