Posted on 12/12/2011 5:17:27 PM PST by Robert Drobot
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."

Three Cheers for Lowes !!!
There's a related item titled :
Lowes has nothing to apologize for making a wise business decision.....now if only I cold get my hands on a petition supporting this All-American patriot enterprise !!!
Let Lowe’s know that you support their decision by sending an email to:
I wonder who owns TLC.
Mia Farrow is still alive? She must be 90 by now.
Vote with your wallet to bust any boycott.
Let Mia Farrow and her newfound buddies “the moslems” soil themselves over this.
Television is no place for shows promoting islam/sharia.
At most, it belongs in toilet stalls at bus stations.
There are a lot of companies that didn’t advertise on the show in the first place, will they be boycotted too?
Thanks for posting. I will make a point of stopping by their store near me next time I’m buying supplies.
These Libs are all about bias and diversity.
Where are they on the Media Matters/Soros boycotts?
Mia Farrow is 71.
Who cares what she thinks?
Don’t like our attitude, muzzie-lovers? Remember this isn’t Egypt or Pakistan (or Iraq, sorry to say). Here your hated “infidels” are an armed majority.
So bring it.
America would be so much better off if we stopped listening to these idiot celebs! SHUT UP and be be an entertainer.....
Thanks FReeper !
The wife’s new dishwasher is coming from Lowe’s now. I really appreciate them standing up to all the PC Crap from our enemies.
Make no mistake, Islam will never be satisfied till America is dead and we are all Islamic Slaves. They are commanded to do this in the Koran, and commanded to lie about it. Never believe a word they say, just watch their actions, they speak a lot louder than their worthless word.
Mia Farrow!. Still can’t get over being buddyfuc*ed by Woody Allen so she’s turned to supporting the Moslems to get back at her Jewish housemate.
Russell Simmons. Did too much hip-hop breakdancing on his head. He did more to hurt young black people than the Klan. Must be proud of himself.
They dropped ads for a hot-potato. They don’t have to like it, but I don’t see any grounds for legal recourse unless it is directly between Lowes and TLC for breech of contract.
These days you gotta be culturally sensitive. A blowout sale on scimitars might be a good way for Lowe’s to patch things up.
Sent! Thanks for posting the link.
Yup, just sent them a message expressing my gratitude for their courage in the face of people who forgot 9/11. Shame on those folks going after Lowes. I need to few projects in the near future. They will have my business for sure.
Oddly, there was no “backlash” against “All-American Muslim” itself, at least according to the DNC Media. It therefore remains a complete mystery why all these companies have been discontinuing their ads.

I let Lowe's know that I'm in the home improvement business, and that I wouldn't be shopping for supplies at that 'other store' for the foreseeable future.
As long as they don't back down, they've got all my business.
Drove right past Home Depot today and spent $300+ at Lowe’s because of its stand. Thanks Lowe’s!
You betcha. Another Freeper posted it in a previous thread and I cross-posted it here.
Pass it on. These good folks deserve our support.
I think I'll post the article to my Facebook page, then insert the email address for Lowe's into the first comment. They need to hear some support from the American public for taking this courageous stance.
Up until now, I didn’t shop Lowe’s much, mainly because of the extra distance. I’m going to start driving those few extra miles now however.
Stand tough. Do not back down.
The famous, taking you to task, get the press. But there's many, many, many more folks like me who share your thoughts regarding this program.
You did the right thing. Don't let the bastards get you down.
Aiken County, SC
Per the article: One CA state senator complained, one person who appeared on the show complained, and one mouthpiece for the Council on American-Islamic Relations complained.
How is that a “backlash,” Yahoo?
Careful, your agenda might get out.
The page must be getting clobbered with traffic. LOL! I keep getting an ‘error - having trouble with our server’ message. I’ll try again later. :-)
My thoughts exactly.
Lowe’s big (and only) mistake was in advertising on that
show in the first place.
Sheer feel-good idiocy for the two celebs to target them.
Disappointed in Mia Farrow in particular.
Mia is made at Lowe’s......that’s where Woody bought the hammer he used to nail their daughter!
WHO is russel simmons? nevermind who cares
Because Mia Farrow hangs out all day in hardware stores. Russel Simmons doesn’t know the working end of a hammer.
I’m sure they are going to carry a lot of drag with folks from Nevada to Virginia.
Not sure what Lowe’s was thinking in the first place.
Actually, it would be funny if their ads were hawking fertilizer.
“Scotts has more ammonium nitrate than any other brand, and is on sale, 5 bags for $100. Fuel oil containers are also on sale, 6 for $89. 6 volt Rayovac lantern batteries just 4 for $50. Duct tape and electrical tape is now buy one get one free, just in time for Eid.
All of your homeland, er, home owner needs, all in one place. Let’s blow, er, let’s do something together - Lowes.”
... and stopped welcoming thankless immigrants from third world hellholes.
I’m pretty tolerant, but the teasers for the show are obnoxious.
I’m at Lowes almost every weekend, especially in the summer. They will continue to receive my business. :)
They are NOT IMMIGRANTS!
They are INVADERS!
An “immigrant” comes to this country, this Republic, because he believes in our principles and wants to live like we do.
An “INVADER” comes to this country wanting to change us or kill us.
Am I wrong? One single bit wrong?
Illegals are invaders, but the ones the Democrats imports from the Africa and the Middle East are thanksless freeloaders.
Tellingly, Yahoo is not allowing feedback from readers.
