This Woman Is Insane




Posted at 19:54 by Brad

She just won’t be deterred. Despite being roundly ridiculed by, like, everyone for her latest jihad against Rachel Ray’s scarf, Michelle Malkin has dedicated her entire weekly column to the affair. Read. Weep:

The keffiyeh kerfuffle
By Michelle Malkin • May 28, 2008 09:38 AM

My syndicated column today examines the keffiyeh kerfuffle with Dunkin’ Donuts and Rachael Ray that I noted on the blog last week. As you’ll recall, I linked to an item by LGF’s Charles Johnson about the scarf she wore in a recent Dunkin’ ad. Keffiyeh chic has been covered on this site and at Hot Air extensively (see here, here, and here). Anti-American fashion designers abroad and at home have mainstreamed and adapted the scarves as generic pro-Palestinian jihad or anti-war statements. Yet many folks out there remain completely oblivious to the apparel’s violent symbolism and anti-Israel overtones.

I remember a time when left-wingers were continually stereotyped as humorless paranoids who looked for symbols of racism, sexism and homophobia in just about every area of popular culture — novels, television shows, advertising, and so on. While there was obviously some truth to this caricature, it was generally limited to college professors who pushed critical theory as the primary tool for analyzing texts.

The entire right-wing blogosphere, on the other hand, fits this stereotype better than any egghead college perfesser ever could. As George Carlin would no doubt say about this entire affair: “I see them as symbols, and I leave them to the symbol-minded.”

  • The Boston Globe accused me of “yowling,” however, if you actually read my post and the column below, you’ll see that, yowl, the Left is to blame. Yowl, flag-burning, yowl, disloyalty. Hat tip: Atlas Shrugs. Murders, treason, beheadings, yowl. Yowl-and-yowl, Klan hoods, leftist dupes, bigotry. Yowl, death, 9/11. Snort, shriek, enemies, blame, ah-oogah.

    Well why not? Super Loony Malkin actually got the cravenly Dunkin Donuts to cave in and pull the ad.

    Well then, it’s a good thing that Michelle is bringing to everyone’s attention a horrible crisis that somehow was affecting them, even though they didn’t know a thing about it.

    I was completely oblivious to the insidious symbolism of my wardrobe until one day my scarves got together and declared jihad on my church dresses. If it weren’t for the one brave scarf (bought on the streets of Manhatten, and therefore more patriotic than the usual Chinese polyester), I never would have know about the plot.

    Fortunately I armed the sweaters and they threw themselves over the dresses, protecting them from the dust bunnies lobbed by the espadrilles. (Illegal espadrilles, no doubt.)

    Come now, Michelle hasn’t had a lot to cheer about lately in her life. She’s off the cable shows, the 2008 elections are looking pretty grim for the Repubs, and she hates the Republican candidate anyway. What’s a girl to do to raise her spirits and hopefully her media profile? Prove that she can still rally her army of screechers and force a rich powerful corporation to bend to her will, that’s what.

    I sure wish somebody somewhere would stand up and say, loud and clear, that every freaking middle easter, arab and muslim person in the WORLD is not america’s enemy, is not even anti-american. And being these people, or dressing like them, or eating their cuisine, or worshiping their god, or attending their schools, or even accepting their right to mind their own business, raise their families and go about their business does not make them international criminals, terrorists nor america’s implacable enemies.

    What this is more than even simply absurd is raw bigotry, stripped of any artifice, bared like fangs, pure hatred of nearly half the worlds population for mindless and unsupportable reasons.

    And it pisses me off…

    America: Well… I’ve kind of grown attached to it.
    Mugatu Then you must submit to sharia law!
    America: Well, ok, I guess I was already wearing the scarf anyway…
    Mugatu And Israel must be destroyed.
    America: Mmm hmmm… whatever you say.

    I think the grand irony of all of this Islamophobia is that the U.S. can always be counted on to collaborate with Islamists when it is in its interests to do so. Look at the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan during the 80s. Look at steadfast U.S. support for the Saudi regime and other Gulf monarchies. During the Cold War there were numerous countries where the U.S. or its proxies backed Islamists in the hopes of detracting from Godless socialism and Arab nationalism. It worked, but then backfired horribly.

    Anyways, my point is that, despite all the anti-Muslim spew that comes from the right, the U.S. foreign policy establishment knows that many Islamist groups are natural allies in the fight to preserve the American empire and that Islamophobia is only useful when stirring up support for military actions against Muslim nations. An all-out war against the Muslim world will never happen because even the neocons are realistic enough to know that it’s not practical.

    I was nodding to myself in agreement, having just had the same thought myself. On further reflection, I think there’s more to it.

    There’s a…syndrome?.. trait?.. something that fundamentalist type people have in common. Simply put, they don’t make distinctions between the symbols and the things they represent. Michelle griMalkin displays it here.

    Like the Xianist wacko I heard on the radio telling people not to have Xmas trees and so on because they were pagan symbols. He even said “People don’t understand! They don’t know what those things mean!”

    Or flag lovers, or whatever. The symbol, whatever it might be, for them becomes a magic talisman. It has power in and of itself.

    The keffiyeh for her is a symbol transmuted into a magical device capable of … whatever.

    Not to mention our own troops (official US military issue) and those of our European allies (both of them) in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as every other sane human being in the middle of a Middle Eastern desert. MalKKKin, however, has never been accused of sanity and has never let the facts stand in the way of a perfectly good hissy fit.

    Now, in order to unde the Dhimmification I had unwittingly released upon my favorite black sports jacket and comfortable hoodie (which is also black), I wear a tie ALWAYS, even if I’m not wearing a collared shirt. This includes when I am showering and aborting gay babies while forcing public school children to accept that it’s ok for Mexican people to like, exist and stuff.

    From Debbie Schlussel’s article:

    Meghan McCain whined about criticism she faced over her make-up and fashion tips on her campaign blog. She said that it’s important to be a girl and that her tips were good ones. Judging from the gobs of make-up she wears, that’s debatable.

    Even from a fashion perspective, these jihadi keffiyeh scarves are out. They were in in the mid-to-late ’80s, when I was in college. Since then, they’re really only worn by drug users, homeless people, and other parties who still wear acid-washed jeans. Although stores like “Urban Outfitters” and magazines like the now-defunct “JANE” have tried to push the keffiyehs as a rebounding trend, they’re still not in. And they’re not in despite the fact that a few misguided male foreign celebs have donned them, including–on several occasions!–Colin Farrell.

    Debbie… someone needs to tell you this and it’s gonna be me. First, women in drag queen makeup and teal tie-dye tops do no lecture other women on fashion.

    Second, when Urban Outfitters, Jane Magazine, Colin Farrell, and the fashion coordinator for a major commercial are all pushing kaffiyehs, keffiyehs are in.

    Third, fashion is cyclical. You are now old enough to be entering your second cycle. Congratulations, and get used to it.

    Dude, your wardrobe and mine match *exactly*, but kilts tend to make my ass look huge (I prefer a Greek Fustanella, which has a hip-slimming effect). Tell me something: Summer wear- lederhosen with a sombrero and wooden shoes (with paintings of windmills on ‘em), right? Everyone always says “Oooh, wooden shoes make my feet hurt” but I find that a well fitting set of orthotic inserts make them *very* comfortable. You just have to find things that work for you and go with it.

    MM is the caboose on this train to loonieville. She’s desperate to be seen as the leader, of a successful, even though idiotic, publicity campaign. Dunkin Donuts just wants to sell, so dropping a particular commercial out of rotation is not a big deal. The company specifically mentioned “misperception”, as a code word for “morons are incapable of understanding”. I would be pissed if someone (rachel ray) lost her endorsement gig over this.

    You know, a long time ago it occurred to me how the people who claim to hate “socialism” so damn much seem to have embraced all of its worst excesses. It’s their demanding that all art must mirror the beauty and benevolence of the State (ie. the hissy fit that inevitably ensues whenever a new Michael Moore movie comes out or someone does a war film that doesn’t portray our soldiers as flawless, unstoppable Spartans), or it’s their constant searching for “traitors” against the Glorious Revolutionary American State, or it’s a billion other things that supposedly made the Soviet Union an “Evil Empire”. I seriously can’t understand it, and I used to BE one of them.

    Honestly, you right-wingers reading this site, do yourselves a favor and pull your heads out from where you’ve got them jammed, before you wake up from your little “America, America Uber Alles!” dreamworld with blood on your hands you’ll never be able to wash off.

    Every time, I mean every single time, I read something Malkin wrote, I have this overwhelming urge to grab her by her flimsy little shoulders and scream into her face, “What the hell is wrong with you?!?! I just want to know why you are the way you are!”

    All wingnuts make me want to ask that question to a greater or lesser degree, but with Malkin it’s sort of a frantic need to know, to understand. What did her parents do to her? Did she suffer some sort of horrible experiences with brown people during her school years? Was she kidnapped and operated on by space aliens who took off the top of her skull and stirred her brains around with a paint stick? (That would kinda explain her “illegal aliens” obsession.) But why? Why? Why is she like that?

    So have Malkin and Pam and Schlussel finally given up on the whole “we’re not racist, we just hate radical Islam” cover? Because this is a garment which (a) is universal in the region, (b) predates the Israel conflict, (c) is worn by people of all religions, and (d) doesn’t actually look anything like the “Arafat” keffiyeh they hate so much. It’s like calling someone a Nazi-lover for wearing lederhosen. It’s an open attempt to equate a widespread cultural identifier with membership in that culture’s worst minority.

    It’s racist, plain and simple.

    My name is Rachel Rae and I do 30 minute terrorist acts. In the time it takes you to watch this program, I’ll have put together a team, a target, weapons and an operational outline for killing as many infidels as possible.

    Ever blow up a bus? Busses are good, because they run on predictable routes and they tend to carry a lot of people. I call today’s attack the “Semi-Tex Hustle Bus-tle”. Hee hee. See, we’re putting together a 30 minute explosive that’s BASED on Semtex and we’re going to use four operatives and 2 backpacks and “hustle” them onto the best target buses.

    Michelle Malkin is a token. And she is no longer useful. And I think their tolerance for crazy only extends to People Like Us, where they can laugh it off as eccentricity.

    I thought madness in the service of wingnuttery was not madness at all! I would feel more sorry for her… except wasn’t one of her readers the one sending fake anthrax to people like Keith Olbermann?

    the apparel’s violent symbolism and anti-Israel overtones.

    My clothing generally doesn’t have overtones. Except for the outfit with bells on.

    And as to violent symbolism, I just bought a pair of sneakers with skulls and on them – does that count as violent symbolism?

    Actress Tippi Hedren (mother of Melanie Griffith) is responsible for Vietnamese nail salons. She became concerned with the plight of women refugees, and had her own manicurist train the first group so they could have a skill in their new country.

    Is that for real? I’ve always wondered about why nail salons are run by Vietnamese.

    Now can you explain Cambodian donut shops?

    If you go to Dunkin Donuts’ website, you will pretty much find nothing about doughnuts (or keffiyehs or jihad for that matter). It’s pretty much all coffee drinks, sandwiches, and merchandise. Although in the “Nutrition” section I was able to verify that the Glazed Donut has no crustaceans.

    It’s not a scarf or a keffiyeh that Ray’s wearing. It’s a rebozo. This was a case of Dunkin’ Donuts subtly suggesting support for the Reconquista!!!11!!1

    If Pammy was an Angelino, rather than a New Yorker, she’d have seen it! Everyone knows that NY-area Dunkin’ Donuts are Ay-rab-owned. Consider the post 9/11 boycott attempt alleging outrages against the U.S. flag at two NE New Jersey stores and failure to support the rescuers at Ground Zero ( http://www.breakthechain.org/exclusives/dunkin.html or http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bldd-boycott.htm ). Consider also last year’s suit by a Palestinian DD franchisee over corporate-imposed pork products, which prompted a Malkin circle-jerk ( http://michellemalkin.com/2007/07/11/muslim-dunkin-donuts-owner-sues-over-pork/ ).

    To certain people, Dunkin’ Donuts = Muslim. Some of these people excuse Ray’s naivete because she doesn’t “live, eat, and breathe [Islamophobia] like we do”, as one of Malkin’s commenters put it. These people will see the creeping Caliphate and its evil-doers and enablers everywhere. How could they not?

    I heard MM once wore clothing made from India, Pakistan, and Turkey. That makes her a Muslim.

    She’s also used hair products, which are mainly made in China.

    So she’s a Chinaman too. And China is Communist.

    So she’s a Chinese Communist Muslim.

    Wait… WE ALL ARE!!!

    This is why the GOP is going to lose in November. They are irrelevant crybabies. They’ve had many years in power, and all they have done that whole time is whine about how they are victims of discrimination and using it as an excuse to eviscerate our public institutions while plunging our country and its citizens into debt of apocalyptic proportions. I vote we have a giant party after the election.

    JR, I went to that site just to see what you were talking about and found something very interesting. This Pam Geller of AtlasShrugs2000 is right up there on the Wacky-Meter with Malkin & Coulter.

    Check out the Eagle Atop a Star symbol on Pam Gellers page about half way down the on the rightside.

    http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/05/rachel-ray-dunk.html

    The symbol is very similar to the Nazi Eagle Atop Swastika which is the formal symbol of Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich. The Nazi Party began using this symbol in the 1930’s to represent the power and strength of the party.

    see Nazi symbol here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_atop_swastika

    Using Neocon logic, Geller is a supporter of the Nazi’s hatred of Jews.

    Do you not realize Michelle is in this business for herself?

    She’s hit the Gravy Train.

    Several times I asked her to put up and shut up. I asked her to go to war for her beliefs. At no time did she.

    What she does have going for her is she’s a very attractive woman.

    She knows that.

    That’s how she manipulates.

    Again, I’ll ask Michelle to put up or shut up.

    Michelle, If you so strongly believe in George W’s war then I expect you to volunteer.

    OK, too much to ask for a vein individual as yourself.

    From this stupid Yahoo buzz, which is linked from their home page:

    Actual home page part:
    A week of regrets
    Rachael Ray, Hillary Clinton, and others wish they could take back their actions this week. » The buzz

    When you click on the story, you get this article:
    Ever open your mouth and wish you’d just kept it closed? Join the club. This week, several famous folks made comments they’d like stricken from the record. Take a look back at the awkward gaffes from the week that was.

    Rachael Ray’s controversial… scarf?
    We never thought scarves could be “controversial,” but then again, we’ve never had our neckwear critiqued by millions of people. Rachael Ray wore a fringed scarf for a recent Dunkin Donuts ad, and a blogger pointed out that scarf was similar to “the type typically worn by Muslim extremists.” Others voiced their opinions and pretty soon, Dunkin Donuts pulled the ad. The New York Times recaps this textbook example of the Web’s massive influence.

    I’m annoyed at the thought that their intimidation worked, and that Dunkin Donuts caved to the bullying.

    If you feel the same way, consider checking out my event “Scarfin’ Donuts” — I’d like to get a bunch of people to take pictures of themselves with scarves of vaguely-similar types (or whatever you can get your hands on) at coffee shops and/or DD.

    I explain in this blog post

    There’s also a Ning social network and a Flickr group, where I hope to get people to upload their pix.

    Help me tell these people to jump in a lake, won’t you? Please spread the word.

    I think it’s funny how Malkin’s ‘controversy’ can mask a real one: why is Rachel Ray hiding hickeys (sp?)?

    Now that we know it’s a keffiyeh hiding Ms. Ray’s hickeys, the question needs to be asked, are they Arab hickeys? From more than one Arab person? Male or female, or both? Naughty, naughty, naughty Rachel Ray!
