All-American Racism, from Lowe’s

Lowe’s has sunk below Walmart in corporate crassness: “All-American Muslim Meets an Un-American Advertising Pullout“.

Lowe’s pulled its ads following a protest campaign from the Florida Family Association, which objects to the show, in essence, because it portrays Muslims too positively. That is, it argues the show is “propaganda” because it portrays peaceful, ordinary Muslims without mentioning horrible things that other Muslims have done. Right: because a decade of news reports, eight seasons of 24 and constant political grandstanding have done a bang-up job of utterly ignoring Islamic extremists.

Bonus points for mentioning the PPH.

Love the Poniewozik …
