AL Rep.’s controversial Facebook post says to only shop 'American owned'

(WTVM) -

A controversial social media post by a state lawmaker in West Alabama has a lot of people talking. 

State Representative Alan Harper posted on Facebook asking people to shop at "American owned" convenience stores and boycott others, saying- "In large part, these stores are owned by folks that aren't God fearing Christians 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." 

He claims he was simply saying buy local and buy American.
