Backlash for Lowe’s as ads pulled from Muslim show

By CHRISTOPHER WEBER | AP – 7 mins ago

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Lowe’s Home Improvement has found itself facing a backlash after the retail giant pulled ads from a reality show about American Muslims.

The retail giant stopped advertising on TLC’s “All-American Muslim” after a conservative group known as the Florida Family Association complained, saying the program was “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.”

The show premiered last month and chronicles the lives of five families from Dearborn, Mich., a Detroit suburb with a large Muslim and Arab-American population.

A state senator from Southern California said Sunday he was considering calling for a boycott.

Calling the Lowe’s decision “un-American” and “naked religious bigotry,” Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance [and chance, you think, he could be in the pay of the CA Muslim Brotherhood?] , told The Associated Press he would also consider legislative action if Lowe’s doesn’t apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads[!!!!]. The senator sent a letter outlining his complaints to Lowe’s Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Niblock.

“The show is about what it’s like to be a Muslim in America, and it touches on the discrimination they sometimes face. And that kind of discrimination is exactly what’s happening here with Lowe’s,” Lieu said.

The Florida group sent three emails to its members, asking them to petition Lowe’s to pull its advertising. Its website was updated to say that “supporters’ emails to advertisers make a difference.”

The North Carolina-based Lowe’s issued a statement apologizing for having “managed to make some people very unhappy.”

“Individuals and groups have strong political and societal views on this topic, and this program became a lightning rod for many of those views,” the statement said. “As a result we did pull our advertising on this program. We believe it is best to respectfully defer to communities, individuals and groups to discuss and consider such issues of importance.”

The apology doesn’t go far enough[it wasn’t an apology, it was a reflection of the community’s views, which certainly wasn’t a request to keep the show going], Lieu said. The senator vowed to look into whether Lowe’s violated any California laws[!!!!] and said he would also consider drafting a senate resolution condemning the company’s actions.

“We want to raise awareness so that consumers will know during this holiday shopping season [which the Muslims will certainly not be a part of! And in fact, the Muslim Brotherhood is holding a massive anti-America conference in Houston on 12/25] that Lowe’s is engaging in religious discrimination,” Lieu said. Besides an apology and reinstatement of the ads, Lieu said he hoped Lowe’s would make an outreach to the community about bias and bigotry.

Lieu’s office said a decision was expected Wednesday or Thursday on whether to proceed with the boycott.

Lowe’s said company officials are trying to make arrangements to talk directly to Lieu about his concerns and clarify the company’s position.

Suehaila Amen, whose family is featured on “All-American Muslim,” said she was disappointed by the Lowe’s decision.

“I’m saddened that any place of business would succumb to bigots and people trying to perpetuate their negative views on an entire community,” Amen, 32, told The Detroit News on Sunday.

Dawud Walid, Michigan director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations [which means the show was guided and put on by the Muslim Brotherhood, no friends of America or even Lowes], said his group felt “extreme disappointment” at Lowe’s “capitulation to bigotry.”

Walid said he has heard expressions of anger and calls for a boycott by Muslims but said a key to resolving the Lowe’s advertising controversy will be how non-Muslim religious leaders and others react to Lowe’s decision.

“I will be picking up the phone tomorrow to some of our friends and allies to explain the situation to them,” Walid said Sunday.

    Lowes did the right thing. Muslims should not be seen as only a religion or a culture but also a political force. Their goal is to one day dominate America and then the world. According to research and showed on Fox News, 80% of mosques in America teach violence toward Christians and Jews, Jihad. The propaganda in the All American Muslim show uses Taqiyya (deception toward infidels), which is commanded in the Quran, to promote Islam. They are taught to deceive until they are in the majority then they will enact violence. So, Muslims are a real threat and any program that teaches that they are not, well, Lowes is right to not support.

    I 100% support Lowes. Enough is enough with this politically correct bullshit. We do not owe these people anything, for they have done nothing but continuously create mayhem and sorrow for our country. I will continue to shop at Lowes, even more so than before, and so will all my family and friends.
