All American Muslim      Sun Dec 11, 2011 2:45 pm Reply with quote

Hardware retailer Lowe's pulled their ads from the new TLC series, "All American Muslim" after the Conservative group "The Florida Family Association" encouraged their members to email protests to all of the program's advertisers.

The group said that they urged the move because, "The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish."

So do you think it's being "Fair and Balanced" to exclude the showing of decent Muslims on television and only allow Americans to see radical Muslims? Is it ethical for political action groups to use their purchasing power to control what the rest of us see on television?

That's crazy! Does anyone really believe that all Muslims are terrorists? And especially American Muslims? Most of them came here because they wanted freedom and opportunity just like our Christian or Jewish ancestors. You see almost nothing on U.S. television but Muslims who are terrorists or beat their wives. I think that All American Muslim is doing us a service by showing us that there are decent Muslims out there who are more like us than they are different.

Of course, if we think that only a few Muslims are terrorists then the wealthy right wing Conservatives won't find it as easy to enrich themselves with wars while our sons and daughters go off to be mutilated or die in them!
