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.”
