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.
