Giuliani Blames Obama For Officers Shot In Ferguson, Says He Should Be More Like Bill Cosby

giuliani-crazyAt this point, I’m at a loss for words as to what to think of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Has he always been this unbalanced? I don’t seem to recall him being such a blithering idiot when he was mayor of New York City.

Just a few weeks ago Giuliani made headlines when he said publicly that he doesn’t believe President Obama loves this country. It was a statement so absurd that even many Republicans were quick to make public statements admonishing Giuliani and proclaiming that they didn’t doubt the president’s love for his country.

Though if poll numbers are to be believed, the vast majority of conservatives do doubt President Obama’s love for this country. Then again, when the conservative media has spent the last six years trying to make Americans believe that this president:

  • Sides with Islam.
  • Hates Christians.
  • Isn’t an American citizen.
  • Hates freedom.
  • Is a socialist/fascist.
  • Is racist against white people.

Are Giuliani’s comments really off base with the true feelings of the average conservative?

Well, after laying low for a few weeks, Giuliani made his presence felt by blaming President Obama for the two officers who were shot in Ferguson, and (this is not a joke) suggested that the president should act more like Bill Cosby.

During a radio interview, when asked what he thought about the two officers who were shot in Ferguson, Giuliani said, “It all starts at the top. It’s the tone that’s set by the president.”

In other words, the president is to blame for what happened. Never mind that this president has come out multiple times condemning violence against police officers, all of those statements apparently don’t matter because he’s dared to admit that racism is still a problem in this country – so that makes any violence toward police officers his fault.

“I hate to mention it because of what happened afterwards, but (he should be saying) the kinds of stuff Bill Cosby used to say,” he continued.

There’s no mincing words, Giuliani is an absolute idiot.

After all the horrific accusations that have been levied against Cosby over the years (and brought back to national attention these last few months), what sane person would ever suggest that someone should take his advice on anything?

What kind of despicable person would even think to themselves, “Yeah, well, Bill Cosby might be a serial sexual predator, but he has a lot of great ideas on culture!”

So, apparently Giuliani has more respect for a man accused of multiple sexual assaults spanning decades than he does this president. He basically praised Cosby while blaming President Obama for the shooting of two police officers.

At this point I can’t help but wonder, is Giuliani’s mental health okay?

But this just goes to show you that some Republicans will praise almost anyone, even someone accused of multiple sexual assaults, before they would dare speak highly of this president.

    That list of things conservative media has supposedly spent six years trying to make people believe? Those are things (except the American citizen one) reasonable people would come to believe by just staying current with Obama’s daily activities. The list should have included ‘hates Jews’ as well.

      Whoa, not so fast. I think he was born in Hawaii and he did, after all, attend the Rev. Wright’s “G-d- America” Christian church.

      If Rush Limbaugh’s oratory gets blamed for shootings, it seems fair enough to blame Obama for making Ferguson a magnet for hate. As a moderate, I think claiming either is stupid though as individuals are responsible for their own actions.

      ((Obama) should be saying) the kinds of stuff Bill Cosby USED TO say.”
      More attention should have been placed on the Guliani’s caveat, “used to”.

        “used to” Oh ,you mean so long as people don`t know somebody is a sexual predator,what that person says is therefore OK.And it becomes not OK from the moment on when it get discovered,not when it gets committed.
        Got it(Damned,no sarcasm font)

      • strayaway

        Does that apply to Bill Clinton too?

      • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

        Obviously Bill Cosby isn’t the person we thought he was so I wouldn’t use him to compare to anyone.

      • Jim Bean

        Agree. Who would have thought the result of the first black President would be to turn back the clock on race relations 50 years?

    Conservatism is a mental disorder from the personality disorder spectrum. This is an undisputable fact. While not all Republicans are Conservatives, the majority, if not all Conservatives are indeed Republicans. Conservatism should be classified in the DSM-V as a mental disorder Axis I and II. Republican voters as well as Democrat voters who chose to stay home last midterm elections handed the keys of the asylum to the lunatics to run it. You reap what you sow.

    Obama is certainly not someone to be proud of. His record of failure speaks for itself. Rudy was far to kind and should have given Eric Holder his share of the blame. Those two did everything in their power to fan the flames of racial divide and hate in this country and have put race relations where they were in 1861.

    I’m a New Yorker, and trust me he was always a blithering idiot.
