[WATCH] Bill Cosby bashes Republicans, compares them to segregationists

Bill CosbyBill Cosby says the darndest things.

On CNN’s ‘Starting Point’ on Monday, the comedian made it loud and clear that the Cosby is not for the GOP.

According to him, Republicans not clapping along with Democrats during President Obama’s State of the Union is the equivalent to “people who were against any kind of desegregation.”

After the show’s host Soledad O’Brien pointed out how far the U.S. has come since segregation in the 1960s, Former Congressman Connie Mack (R-Fla.) agreed that  “it’s unbelievable.”

But Cosby was quick to shoot both of them down.

“I don’t think so,” he said. “Not when you look at the President’s speech recently. To see people sitting down and then there are others standing and cheering. I don’t think it’s difficult believe. I think that we have people sitting there who are as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.”

He continued, “And then in place of a better America, they want their own sick feelings put across, and it’s — it isn’t — it isn’t a good time, but I think also on our part as professors and presidents of colleges all over.”

From there Cosby segued into how he wants to change the history books in schools to say segregationists were the ones to assasinate President John F. Kennedy.

“And in public schools, we need to get the education of the correct history that happened so people can say, yes, this really did happen,” he said. “Because you have to include the assassination of a president and ask the question, maybe that had something to do with it also.”

Oh, and he also thinks Republicans miss having slavery in the U.S.

“It’s also interesting that this Republican Party is not the Republican Party of 1863, of Abraham Lincoln, abolitionists and slavery, is not good,” Cosby said during the show. “Is it that some people are angry because my people no longer want to work for free?”

Think its safe to say that Mr. Huxtable did not vote for President George H. W. Bush.

    Here is another one I recall his trip into auto racing as it was a raciest sport (: after he lost several millions of dollars with Willie T Ribs as he driver he gave up that idea should have brought a basketball or some sort of ball team and saved himself lots of money.. Will there ever be enough to give and set aside and now the liberals are finding out that the word racist is losing its power and punch and now its segregationists (: I say show me one white college fund or white political or career caucus or white voting districts or voting laws that set aside guaranteed area for white only to win the political race or get the job or allowed to enter a college just because they are white .. As for Slavery hell who could afford that nowadays (: We have tractors and machines now always trying to invoke some racist crap to make everyone not of color look bad or upset the apple cart .

    As for what his people are not getting in schools hell they have dumbed down the educational system so much in the last 50 yrs its crazy just as they have for professional license’s to be more inclusive and make it easier to allow all to become what ever people at some point have to wake up and apply themselves to improve themselves , Since 1965 its only gotten worse as still its not enough to have been done or set aside . Crosby has plenty money maybe he will contribute to Obamas Tax problems? rather then set and bitch about how life is unfair ..
    I know damn well there are grandchildren of the children of the former slaves still live on the land my family owns none left after 1865 and hell they even use our last name ..I see them all the time and all is fine .. Always the white devils fault I’m sick of it what more can you do give or allow to advance someone ?

  3. Heath Baker says:

    All I can say to this is that I feel he’s calling me a segregationist simply because I’m white and have worked hard to be successful. I guess because I would rather not see my country go the wrong direction I’m guilty of treason too. All because I’m a conservative. I guess he’s forgotten that this a free country. I am not sad that slavery was abolished. Quiet the opposite Mr. Cosby. I’m sick of the hate speech against us simply because we feel differently the President Obama. Just like I guess he feels oppressed because he’s an African American.

  4. Cathy says:

    No sir, actually we’re just angry that some people don’t want to work at all. And I believe I saw The Obama’s sitting through Dr. Ben Carson’s recent prayer breakfast speech without clapping, while others were clapping and cheering….just as some could not stand to watch the lies and empty promises in the SOTU address. Not one dime? Yeah…try taking that one to the bank. But then…you don’t actually go to the bank yourself? I have a ton of respect for many people of color…but I just lost every bit of respect I had for you. Sad that you have such tunnel vision…and are so quick to judge those you know nothing about.

  5. Ron says:

    Well pot, kettle, during the 2005 BUSH SOTU, people sat, did not clap and boo’ed the president, the shame of it……. Please Bill do your research before you set a cause back 20 years with unsubstantiated statements.

Stewart covers atrocious Dem candidate

In New York’s 11th Congressional district, Democrats need to defeat Rep. Michael G.
