Republican Allen West Disses Bill Cosby In New Rant
Bill Cosby’s latest published weekend opinion piece has sparked the ire of former Floridian Rep. Allen West. Couldn’t a Jello pudding pop create peace between these two?
The Cos’s op-ed spoke of the attributes of Muslims and encouraged American to emulate their virtues. This instantly angered the staunch Republican representative from Florida. “Bill Cosby said we should [be] more like Muslims,” Mr. West wrote via his Twitter account.” “[You] mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope [you're] kidding sir.”
The New York Post featured the article which found Cosby musing, “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?”
Continuing, he wrote, “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.”
Do you think that West was right in attacking Cosby on Twitter?!
