    Lowes has pulled their ads from a new "reality" show, "All-American Muslim" because some Evangelical Christians from Florida protested.


    The Florida Family Association complained, saying the program was "propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."

    And the spineless suits at Lowe give in to these bigots.

    Let the boycott begin.

    Dear Lowe's.
    Will be a cold day in Hell before I shop at your store again.

    Great. So if I want a fucking drill or something, I have my choice between meek, Bible-thumped Lowe's and Menard's where the founder dumps toxic waste into his personal garbage.

    I like how they're urging advertisers to pull their ads from "All American Muslim" while at the same time they have an ad pleading for justice for Fatima Abdallah - a Muslim whose "suicide" may have actually been an "honor killing."

    They're based in Tampa? The same Tampa as Mons Venus? The same Gasparilla Tampa? The same Tampa that's up the road from where Hooters was born? Crissakes....
