Nuts!

Filtering anything through "The Politically Correctness" filter is going to give this type of result ... When is a scarf not a scarf?

When it's viewed as keffiyeh a by a RIGHT WING LOON!

How re -effing- diculous......we need to step back and see how whacked things are. I heard complaints about a motivational speaker at my work - he told an joke that included a Marine and a good ole boy from "Alabam" - and some people wree offended. You can't talk about anything without stepping on someones sensitive lil tootsies. Everyone - get OVER yourselves and get a life.

Those conservatives must have their wiring all screwed up. They're attacking a tv chef because of her scarf, that she probably picked up at K-Mart or something. I can see the neo-con robot now going into data overload this summer. They'll use anything to scare the American people into electing McBush.

I guarantee you that it wasn't a conservative in charge of this decision. When you're talking about political correctness at any cost,and cowering before your enemy,you can bet that theres a whole bunch of liberals involved.

Wrong, it is the politically correct right wing nutcases that caused this stupidity.

Usually,liberals say us Republicans are cruel callous types of people that only care about ourselves and making money. Suddenly,all the liberals say that we Republicans are super sensitive and don't want to offend anyone.Well,which one is it? We can't be both at the same time.

This whole thing is SOOOOO ridiculous. And anybody who believes anything Michele Malkin says is, in my opinion, certifiably nuts. How anybody can connect paisley with terrorists is beyond me. What's next? If I wear a houndstooth check will PETA be after me? I mean, let's grow up and get a life, people. And stop reading idiots like Malkin and listening to idiots like Limbaugh and Coulter. Let's worry about things that really matter, like the economy and the price of gas, the housing crisis and the elections. Stop getting sidetracked by stupid stuff like this!

They didn't take down the pic because the repukes were afraid of offending anyone, it was because the repukes had a knee-jerk reaction to a scarf that to them resembled something an occasional terrorist (and many, many non-terrorists) might wear. Terrorists wear pants too. DO I need to start wearing a kilt to work so I don't offend you?

I e-mailed Dunkin Donuts to tell them I wasn't buying their coffee anymore because they pulled the ad. I stop...sorry...used to stop for a cup every morning on my way to work.

I am so sick of this PC bulls*it. When are people and companies gonna start standing up for themselves and telling people to deal with it.

The Chicago Tribune ran a poll. Of approx. 12,000 people that responded, 92% were NOT offended by that scarf. So Dunkin' Donuts has really screwed itself here.

Maybe we should ban black and white documents or ban interracial marriages or ban dalmatians or ban the hybrid jews to devil's island but make sure they have Dunkin Donuts with them.
Let's ban Limbaugh and Coulter and send them off to some island. Oh wait, they would probably breed. Nevermind. Bad idea.

Don't forget to shave really good. Terrorists also have beards sometimes..........

Thats the sickening part. They chose to surrender to a small group of lunatics who are intent on forcing their ways on everyone else. What rational person could seriously consider Rachel Ray was sending secret messages to the jihadists? Give me a break.

Rachael Ray does strike me as a terrorist sympathizer, and for wearing an outrages scarf like that, its gonna cost her some fans.
