Allen West, Eddie Murphy respond to Bill Cosby’s ‘we should all be more like [Muslims]’

Comedian/actor Bill Cosby created a firestorm of response when wrote a New York Post op-ed that included the remark that “we should be more like Muslims.” None were more pithy and direct than that of former Congressman Allen West, R-Fla.

“Bill Cosby said we should [be] more like Muslims,” West wrote. “[You] mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope [you’re] kidding sir.”

The Cosby remark that caused the brouhaha is as follows:

I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?

They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.

Eddie Murphy’s response was to quote Richard Pryor: “tell Bill I said have a Coke and a smile and shut the f**k up.”

    *sigh*

    Another actor I'll no longer give any support to. He could have just as easily picked out how Christians raise their children (which is constantly being eroded by this present administration and Christian-hating culture).

    Cosby is such a racist hiding behind calling others racists. its not old age its moral diarrea and stupidity. notice he forgets the evils of islam that they teach their "model citizen children" hey cosby selectively forgetting those little things? do America a favor and move to a muslum country and shoot your mouth off. asshole!

  8. herper says:

    and i have never once heard a good muslim say anything bad about the bad muslims ways. and i have seen muslim husbands make their pregnant wives give up their bus seats for them. nice guys

  9. They protect their women?! Oh yes you can beat the heck out of them or shoot them. That is real protection. How about the guy who killed his daughter because she was not doing what he thought was right. Now that is real protection there for you!!!!
