Everyone always suspected that Rachel Ray was secretly coding Muslim extremist messages and brainwashing idiots who watch her show into turning against the U.S. Now we have prooof!

What are these people talking about? Are you kidding me? WTF??? So I can't wear a black & white scarf because I'll be perceived as Muslim extremist? That's like saying I can't wear an Oakland Raider's hat or a blue bandanna because I'll be perceived as a gang-banger. This is just ridiculous once again proving: Common sense is not so common.

OMFG, What is this world coming to? The woman can't even wear a scarf without some whack job thinking they see Muslims in it.
What's next? Jesus Christ in your morning toast? Oh wait, that's been done and as I remember it was indeed a whack job that saw it.

The palestinian scarf is a symbol of terrorism.

I'm sorry, I just don't see a Palestinian scarf there. I'd like to see the design on it first.

Are the joos that powerful that you let them tell you how to dress? They are a house of cards. Let's blow them over.

I agree, the palestinian scarf is a symbol of terrorism. I have this image of a palestinian terrorist wearing that hideous scarf while holding a gun to the head of an American pilot.

Dunkin Donuts was absolutely correct in yanking the add. Rachel, although she's got the brains AND the boobs, was stopped before she farted roast beef gas on the innocent.

It's a fringed scarf worn not over the head, but around the neck decorating a simple dress. I don't get it. Millions of women all over the world use scarves as accessories. It doesn't even look like Arafat's headdress. Sad that Dunkin Donuts would conform its business decisions to such stupid prejudicial remarks by people like Michele Malkin, too, whose opinions would not deter most coffee lovers from continuing to go to Dunkin Donuts.

If it were moslems that were "offended" we'd be seeing demonstrations with signs "Death to America" "Those who insult Islam will be beheaded" "Kill the Jews"

Buildings would be burned down. Innocents murdered on the streets.

I'd like to see Rachel Ray wearing a turban with a picture of a bomb on it.(and a fake beard)
