Rep. Keith Ellison Speaks Out About the Lowe’s Controversy Press Statement: Congressman Keith Ellison Ellison Statement on Lowesâ€™ Removal of All-American Muslim Advertisement WASHINGTON–Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) released the following statement today after Lowes decided to pull its advertisement from TLCâ€™s All-American Muslim series: â€œLoweâ€™s Corporation has chosen to uphold the beliefs of a fringe hate group and not the creed of The First Amendment, which guarantees the free exercise of religion. This is disappointing since the success of â€˜All-American Muslimâ€™ shows how ready the country is to learn about Muslims as Americans. This probably makes hate mongers uncomfortable–as they should be. Our nationâ€™s history is full of examples demonstrating how we have repeatedly torn down false divisions hate groups choose to create. But the struggle against bigotry and hatred must continue so we never give in to intolerance like Loweâ€™s Corporation has done. Corporate America needs to take a stand against these anti-Muslim fringe groups and stand up for what is right because this is what it means to be an American.â€ 13-51 December 15, 2011 by TMO 0 comments 54 viewson *The Muslim Observer, 13-51, Volume 13 Share this post Facebook Twitter Google plus Pinterest Linkedin Mail this article Print this article Tags: ?Lowe?s Corporation, American, Congressman Keith Ellison Ellison Statement, D-MN, Keith Ellison, Loweâ€™s Controversy Press, Lowes, Muslim, Press, Rep.
