More Crap from the Religion of Peace!

all american muslim

Hardware retail giant Lowe’s has shown that it does not back down when faced with intimidation-using, intolerant Islamic activist groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) who have threatened nationwide boycotts. As a reminder, CAIR is the same organization that provided aid to the families of the San Bernardino terrorists after the attack rather than the families of the victims who were gunned down by radical Islamists.

The controversy began after The Learning Channel ran a program called All American Muslim that was a reality television show that followed the daily lives of 5 families that followed the religion of Islam. Other shows that aired on The Learning Channel include 19 Kids and Counting and Here Comes Honey BooBoo.

The Learning Channel

All American Muslim structured its shows with round-tables in which Muslims discuss the teachings of Islam as they pertain to modern day situations.

The show also follows the families throughout their days as they face the challenges of childbirth, marriage, conversion, and of course, intolerant Americans.

The show became an abysmal failure with an average of only 1 million viewers per episode throughout the first season. Its reception also garnered criticism from groups that accused the show of being “favorable propaganda for Islam.”

In response to the dismal ratings as well as the controversial nature of the show, over 60 companies removed themselves as sponsors of the show. Lowe’s Home Improvement was one such corporation, and released the statement,

“As you know, the TLC program ‘All-American Muslim’ has become a lightning rod for people to voice complaints from a variety of perspectives – political, social and otherwise. Following this development, dozens of companies removed their advertising from the program beginning in late November. Lowe’s made the decision to discontinue our advertising on Dec. 5. As we shared yesterday, we have a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we’re proud of that longstanding commitment. If we have made anyone question that commitment, we apologize.“

It seems like a logical and well-thought-out response, with the feelings of every party involved considered. There is no hate in that statement, and the company recognized the value of diversity and inclusion– 2 values that Liberals are always championing. However, that response was not good enough, and the Left had an answer of their own.

 

In response to Lowe’s decision, activist Islamic organizations met with representatives to change the hardware giant’s mind, and when that failed, organizations like CAIR threatened to boycott the nationwide chain. Nothing says tolerance like ‘put your money into supporting our religion or we will try to force you out of business.’

Even politicians entered into the discussion. Congressman Keith Ellesin (D-MN), the first Muslim to be elected into the House of Representatives, released a statement that said,

“Lowe’s Corporation has chosen to uphold the beliefs of a fringe hate group and not the creed of The First Amendment, which guarantees the free exercise of religion.”

Just to be clear, Lowe’s has decided to take its own personal money that Lowe’s has created through private business practices, and decided that it didn’t want to support a television show, and instead, use it for another purpose. To Keith Ellesin, apparently, that decision infringes on the “free exercise of religion” rights of Muslims. As we have shown before, deep thinking and common sense are not values or requirements needed to get into the House of Representatives.

California Senator Ted Lieu threatened that if Lowe’s didn’t change its decision on where to not spend its own money, he would seek, “Legislative Remedies.”

Ted Lieu seems to think that America has ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a Socialist nation already, and that the government can decide how “folks” spend their own money.

Despite all of the backlash from the fascists, radicals, and ideologues that have crawled out of the shadows to attack a private business for not supporting the religion of Islam, Lowe’s has stood its ground, and not backed down.

Comment: SJW’s (Social Justice Warriors) will rarely stop their crusade to be the thought police!
