"...David Horowitz's Front Page Magazine compared Muslims to Nazis, and theorised that the show's sole purpose is to initiate stealth propaganda to promote a "submission to Islam through the hijab."
"But in doing so, Lowe's unwittingly inspired a sudden grassroots coalition of diverse Americans dedicated to defending American values and fighting back against hate.
"...Lowe's seems simply to have given in to an email campaign initiated by the Florida Family Association (FFA), a conservative non-profit organisation based in Tampa Bay, who wrote,
"[All-American Muslim] 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."
"Apparently, the show's most unforgivable crime is portraying the lives of five Muslim Arab-American families in Dearborn, Michigan as average and normal citizens. They would rather promote the usual assortment of caricatures stereotyping Muslims as an enraged horde of bearded, anti-western Orcs ideologically triggered to destroy American values by blowing up Dunkin' Donuts, slaughtering Porky Pig, and drafting Kim Kardashian to concubinage.
"...Without a hint of self-awareness, Lowe's fails to recognise that it has actually galvanized this non-issue overnight into a "lightning rod" of international controversy. Lowe's decision to succumb to the Florida Family Association is like throwing in the towel to a third-rate comic-book villain.
"In fact, FFA's website – before it was taken down – looked like it was a created by a 14-year-old in a spare hour in between Bible studies and downloading porn."Lowe's, a North Carolina based company with $50 billion in annual revenues, has been in Canada since 2007 and has finally arrived in New Westminster, British Columbia. This is good news for people in this area. After all, there is very little satisfaction gained from boycotting a store you can't get to.
