[digg-reddit-me]Rachel Ray was outed as a terrorist sympathizer and Dunkin Donuts was declared the official coffee of Al Qaeda1 as Michelle Malkin, super-heroine extraordinaire, protected Americans from the jihadist message hidden within a recent Dunkin Donut commercial.
We should all be thankful that Malkin is out there, patrolling our culture, and protecting us from this filth.
Thanks to Malkin’s heroically supersensitive ability to be extremely offended (and to get other people to follow her2 ), Dunkin Donuts has finally renounced terrorism and removed this ad from circulation.
Some liberal pansies may ask when a scarf is just a scarf. But what these liberals don’t get is that patriotism is not a function of “loving” one’s country; patriotism is not about wanting to make America a better place; and patriotism is certainly not about “independence.” And treason does not include things like deceiving a nation to start a war of choice, or looting the government treasury, or allowing our sworn enemy to determine our foreign policy. 3
What patriots like Michelle Malkin get is that patriotism and treason are not about intentions and actions, but about style. I know Michelle Malkin is a patriot because she is always on the lookout for traitors (who all happen to be Democrats.) She also talks about patriotism a lot, and I’m sure she wears a flag pin all the time (even though I could find a picture of her wearing one for this article.) Rachel Ray is obviously a jihadist because she wore a scarf that looks kind of like a traditional Arab headdress. That’s also how you can tell that Arabs hate America – because so many of them wear these keffiyehs.
That’s why everyone can see how ridiculous it is that presidential candidate (and super-secret Muslim) Barack Obama considers himself a patriot. He said he stopped wearing flag pins because people used them as substitutes for “true patriotism.” What he doesn’t get is that patriotism is only about the fashion statements.
And as for those jihadists at Dunkin Donuts who claimed to not know what a keffiyeh was, Malkin has a ready-made response:
Ignorance is no longer an excuse. In post-9/11 America, vigilance must never go out of style.
We should all be thankful that Dunkin Donuts had the courage to back down after the threats of boycotting spooked it’s fearless leader. And we should all be thankful that we live in a glorious liberal democracy where such bullying is possible. What better way is there to use our freedoms than to boycott those who wear items of clothing that resemble items of clothing from other nations?
Some may call such fashion-policing xenophobic neo-McCarthyism. But Malkin knows it is true patriotism.
