Sharia continues its methodical creeping progression across the American landscape. Lowe’s was a major sponsor for a program on “The Learning Channel” called “All American Muslim“, featuring a “reality show”of five Muslim families in the Dearborn, Michigan area. When the company pulled their advertising spots, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) launched a retaliatory public relations campaign against it, charging bigotry and discrimination against Muslims.
Lowe’s was not the only advertiser who pulled ads from supporting the show. Kayak.com, an internet travel agency, along with over 80 other companies have pulled advertising, according to the Florida Family Association website. FFA stated it will no longer give names of those who stop their ads because of threats and intense scrutiny by opponents.
CAIR was listed as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial, the biggest terrorist funding trial in American history. CAIR funneled money for jihad into groups such as HAMAS. CAIR is also a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate.
Not only CAIR, (or maybe at their behest?) several elected officials weighed in on the decision by Lowe’s, the second largest home improvement chain in the country. That’s right, California state Senator Ted Liu along with Michigan state Representative Rashida Tliab, and U.S. Representative John Conyers, responded by condemning Lowe’s action as “un-American“, and “naked religious bigotry” as well as, giving in to demands of a group of hateful bigots. These were soon joined by celebrity experts on cultural affairs such as hip hop artist Russell Simmons and actor Kal Penn, and of course the cacophony of liberal bloggers and objective media such as Huffington Post, Washington Post, New York Magazine, and NPR to decry the bigotry of Lowe’s and anyone else who would dare to retreat from sponsoring what some deem to be pro-Islamic propaganda or anyone else would so much as express any honest examination of Islam or opposition to it’s legal system.
Want some honest objectivism? I want to know where was CAIR when Lowe’s discriminated against an employee who wore a pin declaring, “It’s called Christmas, for Christ’s sake!” Where were the politicians and media elite’s, the self appointed guardians of free speech, the high and mighty celebrities who stood up on behalf of the cashier who worked for this obviously bigoted capitalistic giant?
Hmm…I guess it’s only bigotry and discrimination WHEN THE FAITH OPPOSED IS ISLAM!!
CAIR is apparently the legal arm of the Muslim Brotherhood as evidenced in the rash of lawsuits brought by that organization. It remains to be seen if they will file against Lowe’s; lately just the presence of CAIR on scene is enough to bring good dhimmi’s in line.
Just what is the objective of CAIR? In the words of Omar Ahmad, the Co-Founder of CAIR and former Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), the directive to Muslims living in America is this: “Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam … Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scrupture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Of course, you won’t be seein’ that on “All American Muslim”.
Dhimmitude: The state of submission to Islam by voluntary acquiescence to avoid criticism of anything or anyone Islamic.
