Attack on Bill Cosby is no laughing matter

By Jesse Lee Peterson


“They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, hoping to take my life.” – Psalm 56:6

The left is viciously attacking Bill Cosby, and there’s nothing funny about it.

Last month, stand-up comedian and former “Saturday Night Live” writer Hannibal Buress unleashed a hate-filled tirade about Cosby, calling him a “rapist” during a performance in Cosby’s hometown of Philadelphia.

Buress, a black comic, mocked the 77-year-old Emmy and Grammy-winning entertainer: “‘Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the ’80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom (‘The Cosby Show’).’ Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple notches.”

The attack on Cosby was shocking, and it was the opening salvo of many more attacks to come.

Is there any truth to allegations of rape by Bill Cosby? Sound off in the WND Poll.

Last week, Cosby tweeted, asking fans to create memes using a selection of photos of him. Fans were encouraged to add humorous captions to go along with portraits of the comedian, but instead, haters responded with tweets and captions like: “MY TWO FAVORITE THINGS – JELLO PUDDING & RAPE.”

Then, Barbara Bowman, a woman who claims that while she was under the tutelage of Cosby, he drugged and “raped” her, aired her unproven allegations by penning an op-ed in the Washington Post headlined: “Bill Cosby raped me. Why did it take 30 years for people to believe my story?”

Maybe it’s because you never filed a police report. Or could it be because you waited 30 years to make your allegations known?

Unproven allegations against Cosby are being aired during primetime on CNN.

But why now?

First, Cosby has made national news for publicly airing black America’s “dirty laundry.” And black people hate for other blacks to criticize them in front of whites.

In 2008, he told a black audience, “We’re killing ourselves. We’re making fools of ourselves.” He took black parents to task who spend more money on sneakers than they do on their kids’ education, and allow them to bring “street-corner” language into their homes.

And Cosby ripped black “leaders” who took issue with the blunt manner in which he delivered his message.

The liberal elite power brokers in the Democratic Party can’t allow Cosby’s call for responsibility to get a foothold in the black community because it threatens the powerful grip they have on black voters.

Since the professional blame merchants want to keep the focus off black failure and blame white America, Cosby has been scapegoated as a “sell-out.” But now they’ve found another issue they can use to try and discredit and destroy the man – and, therefore, the message – of black responsibility.

Radical feminists are notorious for accusing American men of supporting a “rape culture.” They automatically accuse anyone who questions or challenges a woman’s allegations as “blaming” or “shaming” the victim. Therefore, it’s almost impossible for men to discuss or effectively defend themselves against accusations of rape.

Bill Cosby has been fighting accusations of sexual assault for more than three decades. Cosby has never been charged with rape in a court of law, but settled a civil lawsuit out of court in 2004.

In a statement posted online, Attorney John P. Schmitt, a lawyer for Bill Cosby, said the comedian will not dignify “decade-old, discredited” allegations of sexual abuse with any comment. He also said the fact that the allegations are being repeated does not make them true.

Tell that to members of the mainstream media who are shamelessly promoting his accuser’s story.

I don’t know if the allegations against Cosby are true, but the man has never stood trial or been convicted in a court of law; therefore, he deserves the benefit of the doubt. His accuser should have brought charges against him or sued him years ago. Now she needs to move on. Instead, she’s seeking publicity and pushing for legislation that would make sure that statutes against rape allegations never expire.

The timing of the accusations is also questionable.

Bill Cosby is working on a new TV series for NBC, described as a “classic, extended-family sit com” with Cosby as the patriarch.

His accuser told the Daily Mail that NBC needs to “take a good hard look at [her allegations]” because working with the comedian is “a little bit on the irresponsible side.”

Could it be that Cosby’s accuser is aligned with the man-hating feminists who want to destroy Cosby’s traditional patriarchal image?

Cosby is not the only person to be attacked for airing the black community’s dirty laundry. In fact, economist and author Ben Stein recently stirred up a hornet’s nest when he said,”The real problem with race in America is a very, very beaten-down, pathetic, self-defeating black underclass that just can’t seem to get its way going …”

Clearly, the people of the lie hate truth and will seek out the messengers of truth for destruction. But the people of truth have a responsibility to come to the aid of their brothers and sisters. Otherwise, the jackals will only be emboldened each time they bring down another prey.
