Katie Couric: Muslim Cosby Show Needed To Fight Anti-Muslim Bigotry

Katie Couric has said that she thought of a way to end some of the hatred and bigotry in America – a Muslim equivalent to the “Cosby Show”.

Couric made the comment on her web show as she discussed the most significant issues of 2010 as it came to a close, including the huge controversy surrounding the mosque that is to be built around ground zero which she said created a terrible sense of racism and hatred towards Muslims.

Half-jokingly, Couric said that maybe what the country needs is a Muslim version of the Cosby Show to open up the eyes of those who are filled with nothing but blind hatred for these people.

The famed news anchor says that people need to change their attitudes about Muslims and a television show depicting what they are really like could do the trick for many.

Couric went on to say that in her experience many people become afraid of what they do not understand, and a Muslim equivalent to the Huxtables could be just what the country needs to stay all of this hate in its tracks.

The statement about the proposed show came when she was talking with Jonathan Martin as well as Sherlyn Huggins-Salomon and Mo Rocca.

      Katie is a liar & ignorant. There is NO anti Muslim bigotry. Hate crimes agst Jews are 23 times more likely. No wonder no one trusts Couric.

      “Katie Couric has said that she thought of a way to end some of the hatred and bigotry in America – a Muslim equivalent to the “Cosby Show”.”

      I fail to see how this would get Muslims to stop being so hateful and bigoted.

      “The famed news anchor says that people need to change their attitudes about Muslims”

      Agreed! We need to stop kowtowing to Muslims, or pretending they’re the victims every time one of them engages in mass murder.

      Do Muslims think they are the new blacks or gays? They brought islamophobia on themselves. WHO in their right mind would tolerate those fu*kin’ terrorists?

    8. RJ says:

      One could not ask for better vindication of Couric than the racist, hateful, and Islamophobic postings on this page.

    9. CW says:

      Maybe Katie’s right. In fact, a radio station in the Washington, DC market had a contest this morning to see what the show might be called. Some of my favorite answers:
      2 ½ Terrorists; Dude, Where’s My Car Bomb?; How I Met Your Mullah; How I Met Your Mother, and Your Mother, and Your Mother…; Martyred…With Children. Some runners up: America’s Funniest Home Executions and/or America’s Funniest No-Go Zones (e.g., Detroit, Dearborn, etc.)

    10. CW says:

      Quoting Thomas Lifson from the Blog, ‘American Thinker’:

      “For my part, I think there are many comic opportunities for a sitcom about a Muslim family dealing with the dilemmas of living in the Great Satan. Clitorectomies, honor killings, shunning infidelas as unclean, and following the prophet’s great example in killing Jews all have great potential for heart-warming comedy.”

    11. SnowballDidIt says:

      I don’t remember the Huxtables chasing someone down the street, punching them in the head, threatening to behead them and screaming, “We hate America!” I wonder if Katie is rethinking this project while fleeing Egypt.
