Of Pundits, C-T analysts and the Rachael Ray “Rorschach Test”

by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

30 May 2008: Complete and utter nonsense. Misplaced and misdirected hypersensitivity that will do nothing more than marginalize legitimate efforts to expose the real “cultural jihad” – a sometimes subliminal war that is being waged against the very fabric of the United States.

What am I talking about?

Of all things and of all people, I am referring to the societal uproar involving Rachel Ray, the ever vibrant and affable host of various shows on cable television’s food network.

In the event you haven’t heard – and if you haven’t, consider yourself among those with “a life,” Ms. Ray appeared in a Dunkin’ Donut’s commercial wearing a scarf that some media pundits and various self-described counter-terrorism analysts described as a visible token of support for anti-Israeli sentiments and pro-Palestinian jihad.

While the biggest offense would arguably be a felonious assault on the fashion industry, Ms. Malkin appears to be asserting that Ms. Ray and her “handlers” are attempting to subliminally desensitize the viewing public to the very real anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian and pro-Islamic campaign being waged against the American way of life. The normally spot-on Ms. Malkin, who does a great service to her readers and this country by exposing the covert activities of anti-American Islamic radicals, appears to have consumed too much of the caffeinated beverage advertised by Ms. Ray in the commercial that was pulled by Dunkin’ Donuts.

One might ask that if that is the case, why bother writing anything about a matter so ridiculous as this?

One reason: the American public needs to understand the threat that we face as a nation posed by the “movers and shakers of the Islamic community” to have our Judeo-Christian heritage and our democratic values subjugated by oppressive Islamic doctrines and Sharia. They are waging war not on the traditional battlefields or Afghanistan and Iraq, but through our media and in our courts. And they are winning.

Yes, the threat is indeed real, and there are subliminal and more transparent attempts being made to achieve those goals. To identify this as one of those attempts, however, turns the people with reasonable sensibilities into unbelievers, thus undermining our efforts to educate the public.

Ms. Ray, remove the scarf because, well, it’s UGLY.

Ms. Malkin et. al, switch to Dunkin’ Donut’s DECAF.

To various others, you need to get out more…
