Who Needs Lowe's?
Despite or maybe because of the retail giant Lowe's backing down in the face of stupid bigots, ad time for the TLC reality series "All-American Muslim" has apparently sold out, with hip hop mogul Russell Simmons poised to buy up any unsold time. Lowe's pulled its commercials from the show, which follows the utterly ordinary activities of five Muslim families in Dearborn, Michigan, after the Florida Family Association complained the show "is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad" by, in fact, showing that nobody in the show is in any way interested in jihad. A petition to boycott Lowe's here. And a brilliant Jon Stewart on how facts sure can mess with one's "belief structure," aka stupid bigotry.
