There are certain tactics being used by special interest groups to put pressure on businesses across the country, and these tactics are seeing increased use lately.
One such group that has been increasingly pressuring businesses to bow to their demands is the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Groups like CAIR use threats of boycotts and bad publicity to get major corporations to embrace multiculturalism and “cultural sensitivity.”
Now CAIR is going after the other major home improvement store in America, that being Lowe’s, according to Viral Buzz.
Lowe’s was the biggest advertiser on a reality TV show on The Learning Channel. That show was called “All-American Muslim,” and unsurprisingly, the already poor ratings for the show were getting increasingly worse.
For what were most likely purely economic reasons, Lowe’s ended up pulling their advertising from the show, which immediately brought about angry protests and accusations from Muslim groups like CAIR, along with some Democrat lawmakers.
California State Sen. Ted Lieu said that Lowe’s move was “bigoted, shameful and un-American,” because, of course, liberals would find fiduciary responsibility — looking out for a business’s investors and the bottom line — to be “bigoted, shameful and un-American.”
However, Lowe’s has found support from some conservative groups, even if the reasons they pulled their advertising aren’t the same as those the groups would like.
“’All-American Muslim’ represents propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values,”said the Florida Family Association, who defended Lowe’s move.
So what do you think? Is Lowe’s taking a stand for American and Western culture and values, or are they simply looking out for their bottom line by pulling wasted advertising dollars from a failing show?
