Clueless Congressmen demand Lowes reinstate their advertising on "All American Muslim"

What balls these three have, to insult Lowes by telling them they must start advertising again on AAM.  They and their spokesmen cannot refute the claims made by FFA so they resort to the only thing they know; insults, personal attacks and smears.  If you can't refute it with logic and fact, bury it with bullshit and name-calling.

It's what politicians do so well.

Congressmen Hansen Clarke, Gary Peters and John Dingell sign letter to Lowe's chairman

 Representatives Hansen Clarke (D-Detroit), Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Twp.) and John Dingell (D-Dearborn) were among 32 congressmen who authored a letter asking Lowe's chairman and chief executive to reconsider his advertising decision regarding "All-American Muslim."
The home-improvement chain pulled its advertising from the TLC show, which examines the lives of five Muslim families in Dearborn, after pressure from right-wing groups. 
Loew's has said it does not plan toreconsider its decision, which hasn't stifled nationwide outrage.
In an unrelated political move, California Senator Ted Lieu has said he is considering calling for a boycott of the corporation.
Dec. 15, Press & Guide: "I am concerned with Lowe’s decision to pull advertising on a show that depicts the lives of five Metro Detroit Muslim-American families," said Peters, a Bloomfield Township Democrat. "This action is unacceptable and it appears the decision was made out of intolerance for Muslims. Metro Detroit is home to one of the largest Muslim communities in United States and I’m proud of our diverse culture." 
 The letter from the congressmen comes at the same time as the announcement of a Detroit-based protest of Lowe's Home Improvement stores Saturday organized by a coalition of Christian and Muslim leaders, including the African American Ministers Leadership Council, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the People for the American Way Foundation. The demonstration will take place at a Lowe's store in Allen Park at 11 a.m. tomorrow.
