In the current culture war, the left has tried to make America “tolerate” Islam in nearly every facet of our lives, and people aren’t too happy about it, especially the leadership from Lowes Home Improvement, apparently. Despite growing outrage, the retail giant gave Islam a giant middle finger, and it’s something we can all applaud.
Many are unaware, but The Learning Channel (TLC) attempted to use s programming choices to further force Americans into accepting the backwards culture of Islam through a show called All-American Muslims, which documented the lives of Muslim families in the country, and enjoyed support from terror-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). As you can imagine, the ratings weren’t exactly the greatest since most people just don’t care, so naturally TLC had issues with advertisers.
Enter Lowes Home Improvement.
They had signed an advertising contract with TLC for time slots during the showing of All-American Muslims. Like any other advertiser, Lowes wasn’t about to dump money into a failing show. So what did they do?
Canceled their contract. And boy did it spark some fierce backlash.
The left came out swinging against Lowes, and newly elected Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA), who called Lowe’s “bigoted, shameful, and un-American,” seemed to be at the front of the charge alongside CAIR. Apparently to them, businesses don’t have the right to spend their ad money as they see fit, even if it’s a smart business move.
But fear not, for Lowes wasn’t blasted by everyone. In fact, several prominent conservative groups came forward to show their support for the home improvement giant.
“All-American Muslim represents propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values,” the Florida Family Association told CNN.
Regardless of how you slice it, Lowes was simply making a smart business move, and refused to cave to political correctness, to which I say – fantastic. It appears as to them, supporting traditional American values, such as free market capitalism, is far more important than making perpetual victims happy while losing money.
For that, we should all thank the company by doing more shopping there. I know I will.
