The "Daily Show" gang also points out Lowe's, which pulled ads from the TLC series, sells all the ingredients needed for a DIY bomb
Leave it to Jon Stewart and his "Daily Show" cohorts to ferret out new levels of nuttiness in the "All-American Muslims"/Lowe's/Florida Family Association brouhaha.
Conservative evangelical group FFA urged home improvement chain Lowe's to remove its advertising from the TLC reality series — which follows a group of Muslim families living in Dearborn, Michigan — because, the FFA says, the show depicts the families living like most other families in the country, and "is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad."
Or, as Stewart put it on Tuesday's "Daily Show," the FFA seems to be upset that "All-American Muslim" challenges their "belief system" by not perpetuating the stereotypes of Muslims FFA holds.
Referring to other TLC programming and its lack of stereotypes, Stewart cheekily added, "I'm also troubled why no one on your show "Little People, Big World" whistles while they work, or makes candy for Willy Wonka."
Check out video clips from the "Kabulvision" segments on "The Daily Show," including "senior Muslim correspondent" Aasif Mandvi's "A New Lowe," in which he points out that the company that removed its ads from "All-American Muslim" actually sells all the materials needed to make a rudimentary bomb:
