Reward The Good Corporate Citizens: Where To Spend Your Xmas Dollars

The racist Florida American Family Association, widely condemned by a coalition that includes prominent Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and civil rights groups for its campaign to compel companies like LOWE's to pull their advertising from a non-controversial Learning Channel reality show portraying the lives of all-American Muslim families has helpfully released a list of companies that stood firm and continue advertising with the show. BUY THEIR PRODUCTS!
"The Florida Family Association has managed to do a lot of damage with its All-American Muslim boycott over the last week and a half, whether by convincing companies like Lowe’s and Kayak to absolutely humiliate themselves, or by stirring up anti-Muslim sentiment against the cast of a touching and totally uncontroversial reality show. But fortunately one thing sanctimonious moralizers do well is make lists, and they’ve kept track of advertisers who stuck to their guns and either continued to advertise on the show after the FFA started its campaign.

So if you’re withdrawing your business from Lowe’s and Kayak and, during the holiday season, looking for new places to spend some money, you can use their list against them. Those advertisers include:

– Big Lots
– Conagra’s Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes
– Discover Card
– Disney for The Muppets
– GeicoHonda North America, for the Accord and Odyssey
– HTC Phones
– Mucinex
– Delsym
– Resolve Clean
– Drano
– Glade
– Scrubbing Bubbles
– Kay Jewelers"
AGAIN: Buy these companies' products — and BOYCOTT LOWE's!
