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."

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.
