Airhead Katie Couric: ‘Maybe We Need a Muslim Version of “The Cosby Show”‘
Katie Couric: Maybe We Need A Muslim Version Of The Cosby Show
Katie Couric, in her CBSNews.com review of 2010, highlighted the controversy surrounding the Park51 project. “The bigotry expressed against Muslims in this country has been one of the most disturbing stories to surface,” she told her panel. In that media narrative, she saw “a seething hatred many people feel for all Muslims,” which she theorized could be remedied by another, more lighthearted narrative:
“Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show.”
She came to the situationally comedic solution after offering this take on American Islamophobia:
"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. "
So could funny Muslims in even funnier sweaters be the answer? “I know that sounds crazy,” she said, “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.” She was referring to Daily Show veteran and NPR regular Mo Rocca, who was present for the discussion. A Harvard alumnus, Rocca shamefully confessed that despite having attended “really fancy schools,” he knows basically “nothing about Islam.”
The two then “totally agree[d]” that “religion should be taught as an academic subject in public schools.”
Wild Thing's comment.........
So apparently to Katie there are unlimited comedy situations with Sharia Law. Stonings, beheadings and female genital removals in the first episodes should build up big ratings.
Anyone have even one example of Muslims being able to take a joke? Nope I didn't think so. They have gone after Winnie the Pooh's Piglet, and countless other things that have NO harm to them at all. Not only do they get mad but they bring out their we will behead you signs. sheesh

I sure didn't miss anything by not seeing that discussion before. Katie probably wonders why her ratings are in the dumpster. These people are the apologists for all that is good about America. To hell with them.

I think Katie Couric should take her high brow talk show (yes, somehow it is American) to her favorite Islamic country, take along her like minded fancy schooled friends like this other CBS analyst in the grey sweater, their whole faculty lounge hot air elite of political correctness, and stay there for about two years.
Then upon her return to the United States (with those that survive), report to us on her findings living within this culture and Sharia law, and to be sure to include to us the answer to the one question reporters like her can never seem to challenge these Muslim people and bring themselves to ask simply:
"How is it that you cannot police your own and isolate the violent factions within your own community, or at the very least come out publicly and pronounce as reprehensible and unacceptable the violence from within your people against completely innocent civilian people around the world ? How is that ?"
Honestly, people like this are appeasers and a joke, but they cannot be ignored because sadly they number considerably and broadcast their haughty loftiness which is taken seriously by others like minded and so inclined, and thus are so dangerous to our national security and to our very way of life as Americans as they continue to undermine our country and redefine what it is to be an American.

Tom, I know your right, and this kind of talk and thinking is very much why Katie's ratings are in the tank.
