Bill Cosby has sparked the rage of a Tea Party favorite when he praised the parenting skills of Black Muslim Americans last month.


Penning an op-ed for The New York Post one of America’s greatest comedians and social thinker focused on the apathetic parenting attitudes of  Black Americans and suggested they emulate the positive and productive parenting of their Muslim counterparts.


“I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do? ”


“They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.”


Reacting to Cosby’s “A Plague of Apathy,” former Florida Republican Congressman and Fox News contributor Allen West completely ignored the values Cosby highlighted and instead tweeted:


“2day in NY Post, Bill Cosby said we should b more like Muslims. U mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope ur kidding sir.”


West has come under fire for past comments that were widely deemed Islamophobic and culturally insensitive.


He once claimed that the Qur’an teaches its followers “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people.”


And he has also called his then-colleague Rep Keith Ellison, the only Muslim serving in Congress, someone that represents “the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established.”

Muslims are the most righteous people on Earth. Allen West is ignorant of Islam.

This is from the Qur’an.

16:90 God orders justice and goodness and that you shall help your relatives, and He prohibits immorality and vice and transgression. He warns you that you may remember.

2:177 Piety is not to turn your faces towards the east and the west, but pious is one who believes in God and the Last Day, and the angels, and the Book, and the prophets, and who gives money out of love to the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer, and those who ask, and to free the slaves; and who upholds the contact prayer, and who contributes towards purification; and those who keep their pledges when they make a pledge, and those who are patient in the face of adversity and hardship and when in despair. These are the ones who have been truthful, and these are the righteous.
