Alabama State Rep. Alan Harper’s Facebook post urging this has, sadly, been removed.

…part of it stated: “The C stores/tobacco outlets, etc. with the lights around the windows and doors are not owned by God fearing Christians,” notes

“In large part, these stores are owned by folk that send their profits back to their homeland and then in turn use these funds against our country to create turmoil, fear and in some cases death and destruction,” Harper added.

“I realize I am ‘painting with a broad brush’ here, but the madness has to stop,” Harper insisted. “Please join me in making the extra effort to never support these stores/shops! I am trying to do my part and I know you will too.”

However, many people on Facebook were offended by the lawmaker’s advice, and his subsequent answer to a question.

One Facebook commenter asked Harper how to know if the store was OK to shop at, and the lawmaker reportedly replied, “Look behind the cash register. Most are owner/operators.”
