Solidarity

As many of you are aware, there’s this show on TLC called “All-American Muslim”. It’s a reality show about a typical American Muslim family doing normal things.

A Christian hate group in Florida decided that it was “politically correct” and offensive to show Muslims doing normal things and not blowing up things, so they petitioned Lowe’s (one of the show’s advertisers) to stop advertising on the show.

Lowe’s listened and pulled their advertising from the show.

Naturally, many people are angry about this. Not just Muslims. It’s kowtowing to bigotry.

However, good things often come from bad situations. This warmed my heart.

Lowe’s, of course, still says no, despite vocal opposition to their support of bigotry and hatred.  I would join the boycott, but honestly, I’ve never bought anything at Lowe’s to begin with. I sure as hell am not going to start now.
