Lowes chose to stop advertising on a reality show called “All-American Muslim” . Seems simple enough right? Lowes certainly has a right to not advertise on a show doesn’t it? Not according to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) also said Lowe’s is choosing to disregard the First Amendment.
Hmmm, is he actually saying a company choosing NOT to advertise on a show violates the first amendment? Clearly Ellison has no grasp on what our Constitution says.
“Our nation’s history is full of examples demonstrating how we have repeatedly torn down false divisions hate groups choose to create,” Ellison said in a statement.”But the struggle against bigotry and hatred must continue so we never give in to intolerance like Lowe’s Corporation has done.”
Ellison isn’t the only politician speaking out against Lowe’s. A state senator from Southern California said Sunday he was considering calling for a boycott.
A boycott? Good Grief!, but wait, it gets WORSE, the Left shows its totalitarian streak as well.
Calling the Lowe’s decision “un-American” and “naked religious bigotry,” Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press he would also consider legislative action if Lowe’s doesn’t apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads. The senator sent a letter outlining his complaints to Lowe’s Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Niblock.
Legislative action? To what? Force a company to advertise where it does not wish to advertise? What is next? Will this Nanny Stater next seek a law that gives government control of where companies advertise? Stalin would be proud.
