"All-American Muslim" is an eight-part series that follows five Muslim families living in Dearborn, Michigan.

"Lowe's has received a significant amount of communication on this program, from every perspective possible. Individuals and groups have strong political and societal views on this topic, and this program became a lightning rod for many of those views. As a result we did pull our advertising on this program," the company said in a statement Saturday.

The conservative Florida Family Association, which is pushing advertisers to drop "All-American Muslim," cheered Lowe's decision. The group called the TLC show "propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."

So, the show portrays the real lives of "normal" American Muslim families. This makes it deceptive pro-Muslim propaganda meant to put a friendly spin on an 'evil' religion, according to hate groups like the Florida Family Association.

Frankly, Lowes is craven and pathetic for pulling their ads. Just imagine an anti-Semetic group demanding they pull ads on a show based on Jews. Oh, but you're allowed to openly hate Muslims. Rather than being beyond the pale, hating Muslims is treated like a legitimate point of view in America.
