Katie Couric: “Maybe We Need a Muslim Version of the Cosby Show” (Updated)
What a lovely idea.
Maybe for their Christmas special they could blow up a Christmas tree, bomb a church or drag a pastor into the street and shoot him dead?
Katie Couric wants a Muslim version of the Cosby Show.
In her @katiecouric Web show analyzing the trends of 2010, the CBS Evening News anchor made a serious speech (in her serious, deep-thinker glasses) against the deep “seething hatred” against Muslims in America:
I also think sort of the chasm, between, or the bigotry expressed against Muslims in this country has been one of the most disturbing stories to surface this year. Of course, a lot of noise was made about the Islamic Center, mosque, down near the World Trade Center, but I think there wasn’t enough sort of careful analysis and evaluation of where this bigotry toward 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, and how this seething hatred many people feel for all Muslims, which I think is so misdirected, and so wrong — and so disappointing.
She really winced on that last word. When comedian Mo Rocca said he went to “really fancy schools” and “I cannot tell you five things about Islam,” Couric shot back “Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show.” She continued:
I know that sounds crazy, I know that sounds crazy. But The Cosby Show did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans in this country, and I think sometimes people are afraid of what they don’t understand — like you, Mo.
Of course, the left has totally fabricated the “Islamaphobia” in America.
If these radical leftists were honest about reducing hate crimes they would be denouncing anti-Semitic attacks in America. Of the 1,575 religiously biased hate crimes last year, over 70 percent of the crimes were committed against Jews in America. The second highest group, at 8.4 percent, were the victims of an anti-Muslim bias.
But why let facts get in the way when you’re attacking Americans, huh Katie?
UPDATE: Ed Driscoll reminds of the horrific ending of the last Muslim couple on TV in New York.
