Taking Down Cosby: Payback is a Bitch

BillCosbyby Tim Jones1/2/16
It was only a matter of time before Cosby got his comeuppance for leaving the liberal reservation and taking the politically incorrect position that blacks, particularly low income, need to be more accountable and to take more responsibility for improving their lot in life.

With the statue of limitations about to run out, Cosby was recently arrested and charged with sexual assault that took place 12 years ago against a University of Pennsylvania employee in their athletic department.

From NYTimes.comBill Cosby Charged in Sexual Assault Case

“The criminal charges stem from a woman’s accusation that he drugged and sexually abused her at his home in a suburb north of Philadelphia in 2004.”

It’s interesting to note that one of the country’s most popular television personalities of all time, now 78 years old, is being tried and convicted through media hype over past allegations of sexual misconduct. It also exposes the extreme hypocrisy in the way it treated Bill Clinton and now the way Cosby is being treated by the MSM and on liberal blogs.

In 2007, Cosby and Harvard professor of psychiatry Alvin Poussaint wrote a book Come on, People: On the Path from Victims to Victors that clearly promoted a conservative message. So one has to wonder why now? Like Clinton, allegations have been out there for his sexual misconduct but criminal charges were never forthcoming despite any veracity to them. It was back in 2004, 2005, and 2006 that Cosby made a number of public statements that clearly were not following the politically correct script that all liberals, and especially famous blacks, should never, ever, be making. And if so, there will be a huge penalty to pay. For Cosby, the ‘chickens are coming home to roost’ in the immortal  words of that high priest of religious liberal vituperation, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

From a 2006 Human Events commentary Bill Cosby and Black Responsibility: ‘The Problem of Blaming the Victim’:

“Cosby dared to challenge African American responsibility for the conditions suffered in the black ghetto underclass. This attack went against the grain of politically correct rhetoric that defines white racism as the cause and black inequality as the result. Cosby was attacked both for his flippant tone and because his argument appeared to ‘blame the victim’ for the racial inequality and racial injustice suffered …. Cosby was clearly trying to connect with a message that black poverty would only end when and if black people themselves took responsibility for changing their lives.The message was one of self-help.”

So for Clinton he has the political cover of being one the most high profile Democrats in the country and a wife who wants to be the next president of the United States. Powerful opinion-makers long ago decided to take a hands off approach to Clinton because of his unrelenting support for all things supportive of maintaining the status quo of liberal Democrat policies and orthodoxy.

For Cosby, he broke with that orthodoxy when he made the unpardonable sin of shifting the blame away from the existing “white power structures”  and institutional racism to the individuals themselves to make a paradigm shift away from considering themselves of being victims and that government welfare programs have been a failure in making their lives better.

Straying from the liberal Democrat reservation is always fraught with danger and shows just how vicious the cost of payback can be for those who do. Cosby is now paying the price. • (766 views)

    I don’t know the veracity of the allegations against Cosby. But it’s obvious that if he had toed the liberal line, he’d have flown under the radar as Ted Kennedy or Bill Clinton did. The first rule of liberalism (which is one reason it is so attractive) is that it generally forgives your personal sins so long as you toe the party line.

  2. Timothy Lane says:

    Cosby was a long-time black activist; I remember a documentary he did in the 1960s on black American history and the flaws in its coverage in history texts. (He pointed out notable black Americans, discussed Birth of a Nation and its influence at the time on culture, and pointed out how histories would use euphemisms, such as “the peculiar institution” for slavery). And during this time, as he also became a very popular actor, he was also (if the accusations are correct, and there are too many to ignore them) a sexual abuser.

    And no one did anything, any more than they’ve ever done with Clinton’s repeatedly abusive actions (a Daily Caller article noted the surprise of a CNN host to hear that there are 14 known cases of women accusing Clinton of abuse, assault, or rape). But when he began taking the same sort of politically incorrect liberal line that Steve Allen had begun, it was a different matter. (Lucky for Allen that he doesn’t seem to have had that sort of misbehavior in his past.)

    I’m astounded at such serial rape charges. How does a well-known and busy man find the TIME to scout for victims, set up the circumstances and carry out the deed. Even the proverbial “wham/bam/thank you ma’am” takes time, as does any necessary cover-up. How does an accused man like Cosby have left over time for a successful career and family?

    I am a little skeptical of the number of charges which have come out against Cosby.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, there is no, and never has been any shortage of females willing to bed the famous, near famous and merely talented.

    I doubt very seriously that Cosby would have needed to resort to drugging so many women to get them into bed. Even thirty or forty years ago, it wasn’t that hard, especially for a world famous entertainer such as Cosby. Groupies are always with us.

    • NAHALKIDES NAHALKIDES says:

      That’s true, KFZ. I remember that Wilt Chamberlain claimed to have bedded a different woman nearly every day, and I believed him. There is indeed no shortage of women willing to bed the famous, and I’m glad to say I’m not young enough any more to be personally bothered by that fact. As a Conservative observer of society, it’s another matter: something is plainly wrong with these women’s thought processes, and one wishes it were possible to persuade the more intelligent of them to avoid an experience which would be meaningless at best and quite possibly hurtful at worst.

      Tim Jones raises the unpleasant subject of Bill Clinton to remind us of how the media (as part of the Left-complex) covers for him. I would like to remind everyone of something else: how weird Clinton was, for he was in a position where he could have bedded not just an assortment of groupies but any airheaded starlet in Hollywood. And with the same kind of opportunities as, say, JFK, what did he do? Chase after Monica Lewinsky!

      Clinton, then, was not simply sexually immature as I think any skirt-chaser basically is, he was compulsive, and in a weird way. God only knows what he’s been up to since leaving office – I prefer not to think about it, or about the possibility of this man returning to power.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Even weirder than the groupies seeking to bed the famous are the groupies seeking to link themselves with the monstrous. A perfect example is a woman who testified at Ted Bundy’s Florida trial (for the Tallahassee attacks, I think — 2 murders, 3 attempted murders; he also murdered another girl elsewhere in Florida) for the purpose of marrying him. I doubt they ever consummated the marriage.

        Clinton may indeed have been compulsive, and (at least for most of his career) not as compelling as he wished. This would explain the frequency of accusations of sexual assaults — once he wanted someone, he wouldn’t take no for an answer. (Erle Stanley Gardner featured such a miscreant as the title character in The Case of the Waylaid Wolf.)

        • NAHALKIDES NAHALKIDES says:

          Yeah, Tim, they’re even further out, and really need a psychiatrist’s help. And I agree – Clinton’s apparent compulsion does explain why there were so many accusations of sexual assaults. Someone who just desired continual sexual variety would simply have gone on to the next woman.

  5. Tom Riehl Tom Riehl says:

    As is typical in such cases, everybody who opines on his guilt is several steps removed from actual facts. If his offenses were really that egregious, then he probably would have been indicted years ago. I take the same position as Tim, namely that this smells of payback.

    That there are many allegations means exactly nothing. If George W was even partially culpable of any of the long list of his supposed felonies, history would be different. The court of public opinion has no bearing on Cosby’s life. Due process and facts do.

    The trial will be interesting. Will it be a circus like the one for the Baltimore cop?
