OMG! We can't believe this is actually happening! We can't believe we actually have to write about this nonsense! We can't believe companies like Lowes would actually LISTEN to this nonsense!
TLC's reality show All-American Muslim, which follows five muslim families living in Michigan and documents discrimination they face on a regular basis, is facing discrimination from advertisers!
After cowardly buckling to protests from the cray cray's of the Florida Family Association, Lowes has pulled their advertisements from the show because the FFA believes:
“All-American Muslim is propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."
Ugh! Get over yourselves!
When will people like this wake up and realize not everyone holds the same "traditional values". Not only that, but these nuts are trying to claim that a particular religion is of a particular danger to "American liberties". Have they forgotten that this country is founded on Freedom of Religion!?!
Yes, that means citizens are free to practice any religion and worship (or not worship) any God they want! Do you get it, FFA?
No? You're still blissfully ignorant and living in your own little blissfully ignorant world where only you're right and everyone else is wrong? Oh okay, that explains why you're intellectually incapable of learning anything from "The Learning Channel"!
What is sad is that these people who are unwilling to view the world from a different perspective ARE the problem with the world. Whether you're a terrorist attacking the American way of life or an American intolerant of a person who looks and speaks differently than you, you are spoiling this great planet for the rest of us who are just trying to get along.
After citing "offensive" moments in the show, such as a Muslim police officer stating he is an American (who rightfully asserts there are "no ifs ands or buts about it"), the FFA campaign, calling for other intolerant viewers to complain to advertisers, reads:
"Clearly this program is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to influence them to believe that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show."
Not only do we COMPLETELY disagree with the Florida Family Association here, but we think we'll be choosing Home Depot for all of our home improvement needs from now on.
We'd like to encourage any of our readers who feel the same way to write Lowes and express your disappointment in the company for folding to pressure based entirely on fear and bigotry.
