As much as it pains me because I basically learned how to speak English in the 80’s by watching the Cosby show, I do believe he is guilty.
But, I also feel that all the women who accused played a part in becoming a victim.
They were not forced to go to his room or house, they were not forced to take the pills, their actions up to that point were voluntary in the hopes of advancing a career through a powerful celebrity.
It didn’t go well after that point and they were vulnerable to a predator.
I’m pretty sure that just as many escaped the same fate simply by being smart enough to refuse to go to his house, or refuse to take the drugs, or because they believed in themselves enough to have the courage to achieve their goals without sleeping around.
Obviously, the accusers bad choices don’t diminish his guilt, but they should be talked about because not mentioning it removes all responsibility from women who make bad choices.
What Cosby did is sadly common place in Hollywood, it has been since its existence, we all know it.
For some odd reason, the last couple of years the left has decided to sacrifice some of their own to create the “metoo” movement, well…maybe not so odd reason.
This movement has become a powerful tool for the left and it wouldn’t have any credibility if they had not created some sacrificial lambs!
In reading an article about Cosby’s trial earlier today, the last paragraph got my attention:
“This case sets the tone for the rest of the Me Too movement, which means more victims will feel more comfortable coming forward, despite the years that have passed since the alleged sexual assault,” says Los Angeles civil attorney Angela Reddock-Wright, an expert on the Me Too movement and on sexual harassment cases.
Where are the other celebrities accused of sexual assault? Eighty three celebrities were “exposed” last year, not much on their whereabouts these days.
Is Harvey Weinstein answering to formal charges? How about Kevin Spacey? Russel Simmons, Matt Lauer, George Takei, Oliver Stone … nothing.
Chances are none of the men mentioned above will ever face formal charges, they just needed to be exposed as part of creating a movement. And at least one had to be the sacrificial lamb that would make it legit, Cosby.
Some of you at this point are thinking of some politicians who also have been given a pass, but the “metoo” movement wasn’t created after a politcian was ousted, they’ve used Hollywood, and that’s why Cosby’s sentencing is so important.
Anyone who thinks the leftist elite cares about what happened to the victims is failing to notice how 83 accused men have not been mentioned at all once the “metoo” movement was established.
No, I don’t feel bad for Cosby. He got what he deserved.
I do feel bad for the gullible women supporting a movement that was never created to protect them, but was created to execute Alinsky’s rule for radicals number 13:
“Pick a target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it”
Accusing someone of sexual assault does exactly that! And it works because it touches the emotional side of every human being.
While I’m happy justice seemed to have been served, was it served for the right reasons?
