TLC Orders 'All-American Muslim' Series

Muslims prayingTLC has ordered a new series that delves into the lives of Muslims living in America.

Look for 'All-American Muslim' to follow five families from Dearborn, Michigan, which is home to the largest mosque in the U.S.

"'All-American Muslim' is a perfect fit for TLC, inviting viewers into a world they might not otherwise experience," Amy Winter, general manager of TLC, said in a statement. "Through these families and their diverse experiences, we will explore how they blend their values and traditions with everyday life in America, providing insight into their culture with care and compassion."

Subjects of the series include sisters Shadia and Suehaila. Suehaila wears a traditional head scarf and is very active in their community, whereas Shadia is described as having tattoos and piercings and recently wed an Irish Catholic man, who is converting to Islam.

There's also newlywed couple Nadar and Nawal, who are having their first baby and working to strike a balance between their roots and American culture.

The new show debuts in November 2011.

In airing this program, TLC is contributing to the tolerance and complacency of Americans toward Islam. Islam is more than a religion; it is a form of government directly opposed to our Republic. Followers of Islam have caused suffering, death and destruction on this planet for centuries. It absolutely must be stopped. If not, our way of life will change drastically. Those who insist on tolerance--homosexuals, for instance--will be the first to go.

I can't believe TLC is doing this. They're basically equating Mulsims to a freakshow. Why do I say this? Because all of their programming is about people that way 1/2 a ton, women that give birth to 12+ children, people that have sex with cars, and people that eat toilet paper. Don't get me started on the stupid coupons.

TLC sucks.

And maybe one day people will look back and realize how shameful some members/candidates/political party/fake news network/ blowhard radio djs of this country have treated muslims just as we can today look back and realize how shameful it was to treat Japanese Americans horrendously as they were (internment camps) back then. Truly sad that we still are unable to learn from past mistakes. Although to some lunatics the US never makes a mistake.

This is clearly an attempt to produce a show to counter the negative stereotypes of muslims. It is like creating a show about how great the Japaneese are in 1951.
