Bill Cosby says those who
oppose Obama are racist

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 1:03:49 PM

Comedy and television icon Bill Cosby slammed Republicans who failed to stand for President Obama’s State of the Union speech, likening them to racists who opposed desegregation. “I think we have people sitting there,” he said, referring to the president’s SOTU speech, during a CNN television interview reported by Mediaite, “who are as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.” His comments came in context of a discussion about racism and the 1965 Bloody Sunday march across Selma, Ala., Mediate reported. Rep. Connie Mack said “it’s just hard to believe,” and “it’s unbelievable,” in

Comments:
Oh groan. Just give them time and these fools will show their true colors. You just can´t help but note that the ones who are always screaming raciiisssst are racists themselves. What a disappointment you are Mr. Cosby. I used to have some respect for you.

Cosby, you have gone senile...what you are saying is that any Democrat, or blacks that criticize any white president is a racist...please don´t tell me that racism does not apply to blacks...The fact that this country has elected a BLACK PRESIDENT TWICE should indicate that blacks can and have achieved ANY position they convince the voters they can fill up to and including the presidency. So where is the "racism" or are you saying that blacks CANNOT be criticized regardless of their ineptitude??? Go back to sleep...

Call me a racist Dr Cosby. Say Hey Dr Cosby PhD in Education, can you explain why ´black´ kids still do poorly in school. You´ve had your PhD Dr Cosby for some 20 years. How have you made a difference, how have you improved the education environment for ´your´ people? You and Barack and the other hypocrites, have sent your kids to exclusive expensive private schools. Do you feel guilty? Do you feel like a racist? And why Say Hey Dr Cosby why hasn´t the Chavez wannabe Barack the Destroyer after 4 years of being the president of the US of A, why hasn´t he moved the needle on education? He has the power, and he not shy about using it, so why hasn´t he used it to improve inner city public schools? And why didn´t he appoint you Say Hey Dr Cosby to head the Dept of Education, instead he picked a white guy. Do you think the president is racist?

Just for information. Cosby appeared in Seattle several months ago, and we went to see him. Saw him several times years ago, and laughed till we hurt. I thought we could use this in today´s world. There was a young man completely in a wheel chair, breathing apparatus, etc. He had learned old Cosby routines, parents must have told people putting on show. Cosby had kid on stage with him, but rather that being impressed the kid learned his routines, he just kept staring at kids equipment, saying *so you can´t get out of this..huh*. It really was pitiful. He let the kid go thro a whole speech. Then there was some woman who was a principle of his as a kid, and he did 20 min on being a student then. Nothing funny, and audience certainly not enjoying it. Finally, after about 60-90 min of this, Cos realized he has lost audience, and went BACK to some routine from his past. It was quite pathetic. It was evident he had prepared nothing, thus had nothing to say. Don´t waste $. If we had heard this before I got tickets, we would not have attended.
None of these people liked either Bush, we should ask if this makes them racist.

Cosby got scalded a few years back when he chastised the younger black generation for their dress, language, and lack of responsibility. He was attacked by every racist organization from the Black Caucus to the NAACP. Cosby is now a fraud and broken man.

The racism rap is too useful to retire. Besides being a kind of universal explanation and delegitimating tool for political disagreements, simply tooting the horn that blares RACISM! identifies one as a morally superior, socially progressive person, one who abominates racists with the same fervor that witch hunters abominated witches. And the charge of racism, like napalm, white phosphorus and skunk oil, is all but impossible to wash off by normal means. It sticks to the target long after it is sprayed.

Altogether, it is easy to see why the ready resort to baseless charges of racism is characteristic of intellectually lazy, ignorant, self-righteous, intolerant and malicious people. It makes perfect sense that such people would be running around accusing anybody and everybody who disagrees with them about politics of being a racist. Such behavior perfectly fits their character.

It is less obvious why someone like Bill Cosby, who has hitherto enjoyed a degree of respect that appeared to be deserved, would lower himself to this level. Perhaps he truly believes it. That, in a way, would be even more depressing than if he were only pretending to. Either way, his remarks are a great disappointment. Perhaps their take-home message is a reminder that the opinions of actors, entertainers and celebrities are seldom of much value, despite the inordinate attention paid to them.

I wonder just how many people really know what the REAL definition of "Racism" and "Racist" really is.. Even if you think you know what it is, I suggesting finding a dictionary that has not been tainted by political correctness, and looking it up. You may find it truly chilling how well the word fits white liberals and democrats..

::Quote from Merriam-Webster::
"A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.."
::End Quote::

Incidentally.. While you have the dictionary out, Look up the word "Bigot"... The very definition itself describes the current Abomination we have in the White House today.

I can forgive Bill Cosby´s actions, for like most celebrities, he is stupid, ignorant, and doesn´t really have a clue what he is talking about half the time. ..a sad result (for many stars/celebs) of living life through movie scripts, playing make-believe in front of a camera, and believing the sanitized B.S. that comes out of their imaginary worlds.

When Bill Cosby publicly stated that he was sick and tired of seeing black youths walking the streets with their pants at their ankles, constantly swearing and calling each other "ni**er," he was immediately assailed by the black community as being some sort of sexual predator. The attacks, as false as I believe them to be, succeeded in driving Cosby back into silence.

It is despicable for Bill Cosby to attempt to use the same odious tactics to try to silence Obama´s critics. Dr. Ben Carson isn´t a racist. He simply disagrees with Obama, just like 50% of this nation.

Take a breath & read the actual article. The MSM at it again!
He never even uttered the word racist.

#1 In the article he said there were SOME people that were probably against desegregation in the bunch that didn´t stand. Okay. That may true. It may also be true of the ones who were standing, btw.

#2 He probably never noticed that the Dems didn´t stand for GW Bush, either. He has been pretty apolitical in his life -- much to our entertainment happiness!

#3 The MSM can´t wait to to get their straying rich & powerful celeb (who was calling his race out of the welfare plantation) back over to their side. I don´t think he´s on either side! And they know it.

I know quite a few blacks who didn´t support Obama. Of course most of them were my friends in Oakland that I used to have those long discussions with... But we have a lot of black Republicans too who didn´t support him (at least this time around).

I think they got to him...the lefties and the peer pressure groups. And yes, he hasn´t been anything like he was before his son died. I just chalk it up to the same old garbage. I don´t think he is being intentionally malicious. I just think he has lost it.

I hope Bill Cosby realizes that most of his audience for the 2 hit shows in the 80´s "The Cosby Show" and "A Different World" were white people, and many of them were probably Republican.

The people Cosby says are against desegregation are only doing what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said he wanted: for people to be judged by the content of their characters, not by the color of their skin. Those not standing during the SOTU did so purely because of obama´s character, and therefore policies. (BTW dems didn´t stand for policies of G W Bush that they didn´t like either during the SOTU.)

Poor William Henry Cosby Jr aka Bill Cosby. This man has not been the same since his only son Ennis was killed back in 97. I do have a question for him though. As a black conservative who did not support the socialist ingrate now in the White House does that make me racist? I really get tired of the same old stupid mess from black liberals about Obama. News flash for you Bill I oppose this president because of his policies and how he has denegrated the office of the POTUS. Now if in your tiny little mind that makes me an Uncle Tom then so be it.

Union organizers are showing up at Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections of an open-shop business that has been targeted by the country’s second-largest union. Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years. The company is currently suing SEIU for $9 million, alleging that the union has repeatedly slandered it. But on three recent occasions, SEIU representatives accompanied federal safety inspectors to examine PJS cleaning sites, says Evelyn Meza, the human-resources manager for PJS.

I just had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with a Council on Foreign Relations group at the United States Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida. The famed Admiral William H. McRaven started the briefing, followed by his staff. I expected to learn about Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and their air force and marine counterparts. I thought I would hear about the exploits of this 67,000-strong command operating in 84 countries, maybe even about the taking down of Osama bin Laden. But that was not to be. Instead, he and the other officers talked at length about their new mission, starting

Militant atheists — this is why people dislike you. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes he can do all things through Christ, but an atheist group charges that he cannot do all things through Christ on his official social media platforms. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has demanded Walker remove posts from his official Facebook and Twitter feeds that read, “Philippians 4:13.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” the verse reads. “This braggadocio verse coming from a public official is rather disturbing,” FFRF co-presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Baker wrote in a letter to the governor. “To say, ‘I can

Ben Sherwood, the current president of ABC News who sits on the advisory board of the George Soros-backed Center for Public Integrity, will take over as president of Disney/ABC television in February of 2015. Sherwood will replace Anne Sweeney, who will be leaving next year after ten years. Sherwood will immediately become Co-President of Disney/ABC Television and continue his duties as President of ABC News. George Soros is a left-wing billionaire who has been convicted of insider trading. Soros is a funder behind such extremist organizations as Media Matters and the Center for American Progress.

Human Rights attorney and the director of the Lawfare Project, Brooke Goldstein, asserts that anyone who is brave enough to speak openly about terrorism and its connection to Islam may find themselves on the “receiving end of a frivolous and malicious lawsuit designed to silence and punish them." Goldstein claims over the last 15 years, Islamic groups like the Arab league and the OIC attempt to punish any type of speech they consider offensive to Islam. Moreover, she told Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and the host of Breitbart News Sunday that such groups pair lawsuits with acts

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

Authorities are searching for more bodies after a massive mudslide in a rural part of Washington state killed at least eight and possibly left more than 100 missing, while crews battle uneven ground and rising waters. A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes. Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim." John Pennington, emergency response managing director, said there are reports of up to 108 people missing in the mudslide but noted that number is unconfirmed. "This is a large

O’Reilly addresses the criticism he got for saying on 60 Minutes he was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write his book, saying that the secular movement is “so condescending and they’re so arrogant that, even though you might be a brilliant person, if you believe, you’re an idiot.” O’Reilly argued that the main problem people have with religion is that “they

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Former President Bill Clinton presided over a star-studded panel Friday evening, voicing his preference that the United States maintain control of the Internet´s domain name system, which will soon be ceded to an international body. Clinton appeared on stage for a Clinton Global Initiative event with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikipedia, among others, to discuss how social change could come about through online engagement. "Whatever you think our country has done wrong, the United States has been by far the country most committed to keeping the Internet free and open and uninterrupted," Clinton

First Lady Michelle Obama included cautious but clear remarks on freedom of expression and worship in a speech in Beijing at the weekend – comments that were ignored in state media coverage of her visit, where the preferred focus has been on fashion and food. Before her visit to China began the White House said she would promote education and “people-to-people” exchanges, and would steer clear of contentious issues like human rights. But in an address to Chinese and American students at the Stanford Center at Peking University, Mrs. Obama did insert references to key human rights, albeit without any

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act.
