Upholding America’s Founding Principles? (...Or Not)
Nihad Awad, co-founder of the terrorist
group Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR), is once again "standing up" for true American principles.
The source of Awad’s sudden "appreciation" of American principles is
spelled out in CAIR’s
reaction to Lowe’s, an American company, pulling
its advertising from a low rated "reality" cable TV
program criticized as propaganda called “All-American Muslim”.
that Lowe’s pulled its advertising in reaction to the
efforts of the "Florida Family Association" which Awad claims is part
an organization of “anti-Muslim hate groups”. Lowe's said they
pulled their ads because the show had become a "lightning
rod for people to voice complaints from a variety of perspectives -
political, social and otherwise." Another advertiser,
Kayak.com, ended their ad support because
the show "sucked".
Awad rants: “We are not alone in this
fight -- several
celebrities, media outlets and elected officials have spoken out
against Lowe's capitulation to bigotry. Our staff are putting time and
effort into this campaign...”
Exactly what is CAIR campaigning for?
Is the goal to force Lowe’s to financially support
a controversial program
that Lowe’s doesn’t want associated with its image?
Awad declares; “This is a fight our community
cannot afford to
So, the entire American Muslim population has
its whole American
experience tied up with “All-American Muslim”? Although CAIR
attempts to paint a horrific
picture if "All American Muslim" loses sponsorship
and fails, at worst a few more American's who happen to be Muslim will
lose their jobs playing
to the camera on a little-watched TV program. That's show-biz.
Americans, Muslim or not, have absolutely
nothing to lose if Lowe’s
refuses to reinstate sponsorship. We all have much more to lose if
Lowe’s bows down to pressure from CAIR, an
group co-founded by a hate-filled religious
bigot, and bonifide
At least Lowe’s is honest where they stand - which is much more
than you can
say for Awad and his ilk.
Bottom line. If Awad believes so much in
“All-American Muslim” why doesn’t CAIR cough up some of their foreign funds and
become a sponsor of the program?
Put up or shut up, Nihad.
