Tea Party favorite slams Bill Cosby for admiring black Muslims parenting[Fox News contributor Allen West’s reaction to Bill Cosby’s suggestion people emulate the parenting skills of Black Muslims Americans]

Bill Cosby has sparked the rage of a Tea Party favorite when he praised the parenting skills of Black Muslim Americans last month.


Penning an op-ed for The New York Post one of America’s greatest comedians and social thinker focused on the apathetic parenting attitudes of  Black Americans and suggested they emulate the positive and productive parenting of their Muslim counterparts.


“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.”


Reacting to Cosby’s “A Plague of Apathy,” former Florida Republican Congressman and Fox News contributor Allen West completely ignored the values Cosby highlighted and instead tweeted:


“2day in NY Post, Bill Cosby said we should b more like Muslims. U mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope ur kidding sir.”


West has come under fire for past comments that were widely deemed Islamophobic and culturally insensitive.


He once claimed that the Qur’an teaches its followers “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people.”


And he has also called his then-colleague Rep Keith Ellison, the only Muslim serving in Congress, someone that represents “the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established.”
