All American Propaganda, advertiser spending and other things that make my eyes roll…

… Seems like Lowe’s is getting some heat over their decision to pull advertising from TLC’s show ‘All-American Muslim‘.

Some State Senator is looking to make a name for himself and waste everyone’s time and money by threatening to take legislative action if Lowe’s doesn’t apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads. “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.”

*Yawn* Company’s have the right to decide how and where they wish to spend their money for advertising. If the intentions of Lowe’s are bigoted and racist, so what? Then boycott Lowe’s and shop at Home Depot instead or, even better, your local hardware store.

The issue of advertising aside for a moment, let’s talk about propaganda; which I believe ‘All-American Muslim’ really is. Propaganda and a bid for high viewer ratings. If TLC wants to bring socially aware entertainment to it’s viewers how about a reality series smashing the long standing and acceptable Catholic stereotypes so favored by Hollywood and network execs.

Remember her?

Oh, I know! How about a reality series documenting the lives of Christians in Muslim dominated countries. Talk about explosive subject matter. Now if you’ll excuse me; I’m off to buy some lumber from Lowe’s for my underground doomsday bunker.

    So because there is not enough positive TV about Catholics or negative TV about Fanatical Muslims, you therefore believe it is acceptable to get your panties in twist?!?! If that’s the foundation of your logic then you’re not only a short sighted ignorant JA, but you’ve also lost any support or sympathy I might have for your complaints or concerns.. Nice going DB!

      please remove my comment policy and try again. Maybe this time with a bit more finesse.

    We actually stopped shopping at Home Depot because of their ridiculous return policies. Did you know you are not allowed to return a dishwasher–one that is irretrievably broken–if you have installed it, determined it is irretrievably broken, taken it out, packed it back carefully in the box, and put it in your car and driven it back to the store? No. You are NOT. You must REINSTALL it, have their Maytag guy come out and look at the dang thing, determine that, yes, the computer inside is irretrievably broken and must be replaced.

    We ended up buying another dishwasher from Lowe’s (sorry, no local hardware dudes here) and they were pleasant and easy to deal with.

    And now the libs would have me boycott Lowe’s, just because they decided to spend their advertising dollars elsewhere? No thankee. Why don’t these people focus on real problems, like the annoying male enhancement commercials that run on the SciFi channel at 2 am. It’s a pain to record a fantastic episode of Atlantis and then have to pounce like a cheetah on a lemur with the remote when the Enzyte commercials start.

    I already boycott Home Depot due to there overt support for the homosexual agenda. Just another reason to keep shopping at Lowe’s.

    That is disgusting! Showing Muslims who are not terrorists! That is quite possibly the greatest crime ever committed.
