CONSERVATIVE GROUP SAYS OVER 60 COMPANIES HAVE JOINED IN BOYCOTT OF ‘ALL-AMERICAN MUSLIM’ Now the group says Lowe’s isn’t the only company to pull its sponsorship from the controversial reality show.

“The conservative group claims that more than 60 companies that it emailed, from Amazon to McDonald’s, have also pulled adds from TLC‘s ’All-American Muslim,’” reports Business Insider.

However, Lowe’s is the only company to publicly confirm that it has withdrawn its sponsorship. If this is an indication that Lowe’s is the only company to pull its ads, and that the other companies contacted by the FFA haven’t, it could be a major PR nightmare for the home improvement giant. The Florida Family Association, a Tampa Bay group, has led a campaign urging companies to pull ads on “All-American Muslim.” The FFA contends that 65 of 67 companies it has targeted have pulled their ads, including Bank of America, the Campbell Soup Co., Dell, Estee Lauder, General Motors, Goodyear, Green Mountain Coffee, McDonalds, Sears, and Wal-Mart.The Florida Family Association, a Tampa Bay group, has led a campaign urging companies to pull ads on “All-American Muslim.” The FFA contends that 65 of 67 companies it has targeted have pulled their ads, including Bank of America, the Campbell Soup Co., Dell, Estee Lauder, General Motors, Goodyear, Green Mountain Coffee, McDonalds, Sears, and Wal-Mart.The Florida Family Association, a Tampa Bay group, has led a campaign urging companies to pull ads on “All-American Muslim.” The FFA contends that 65 of 67 companies it has targeted have pulled their ads, including Bank of America, the Campbell Soup Co., Dell, Estee Lauder, General Motors, Goodyear, Green Mountain Coffee, McDonalds, Sears, and Wal-Mart. http://www.nationofchange.org/lowe-s-bank-america-and-others-... This morning, as I browsed through my Google Reader, I found this story from FeministeAds pulled from All-American Muslim. The piece references this article from Think Progress, which details how a group called the Florida Family Association targeted the 67 advertising companies of the show & pressured them to remove their ads. So just who are these companies that pulled their ads? Well they include Bank of America, Lowe’s, Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, Estee Lauder, Goodyear, General Motors, Green Mountain Coffee, Dell, Sears, and the Campbell Soup Co. http://www.blackgirlunlost.com/archives/2179 The Florida Family Association: “Clearly this program is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to influence them to believe that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.”

    Dear Muzzies,

    Uh, ok. Here's how this works. First, you produce something people actually want to watch. THEN the advertisers buy in.

    YOU have most definitely NOT produced SQUAT, and what you did produce is a LIE about the REALITY of your tribal cult. Ergo, no advertisers. Your first CLUE should have been the lack of interest from YOUR petro-billionaire muzzies all over the Middle East.

    It is funny that when open mindedness is most needed in the US something like this happens.It shows how little minded and close minded people can be.Here there has been a well received show with fairly high ratings called "Little Mosque on the Prairie" and is a comedy show about a Muslim family living in a small town.

    That's Canada. This is America. And yes, we object to being desensitized to death . If you begin to accept Muslims as normal human beings, which many are, the you become immune to the idea that most of them will kill you for fun! It is in their 'holy book' as a requirement! READ the quran for pity sake!

    I cannot accept that they would kill another for fun.It is prejudice to me and I want no part of it at all.

    So, I used the wrong word. But they kill infidels and anyone who is not Muslim is an infidel! Even their Americanized ex-Muslims are targets! As I said,read the quran! It is the way they get to their 72 virgins, and utopia
