Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

Glenn Beck is clearly swinging for Cosby because they see eye to eye on how African Americans have no-one but themselves to blame.

Given he was writing the material, someone with more time than me should trawl through the footage of that show to look for creepy ****

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

I wonder who the enablers were, or if he really pulled this serial rapist lifestyle off for decades on his own with just the help of attorneys and public relations. He certainly used his status as an icon and roll model to stay under the radar, and his fame and name as his tool.

It's still not making the kind of main stream news coverage it should be, because if you take the time to look at the sum of all the misery he has caused so many women over so many years, he is just as sick as sandusky, just as manipulative, and to this day cannot admit to himself or anybody that he is a serial sexual predator.

Any chance this wouldnt have happened if Cosby wasn't about a huge career resergence? He had quite a bit in the works.

Obviously not wanting to derail, but feels like a weird comment to me... Real Madrid prob beats them out to be fair.

I'm struggling to even think of a 3rd in the mix though

Of course the all blacks are the most dominant team in rugby union - they are the only country where rugby union is the national sport. All of the other leading nations in the sport class rugby union as the 2nd-5th most popular sport.

Do the rape claims predate Ennis getting killed?

Probably I guess but damn. That could unhinge anyone.

This is an understandable argument, thanks. I guess I'm just saying it was a weird thing to call somebody out on as its certainly debatably true.

On Cosby I feel like this whole thing just gives evidence that we actually are living in a rape culture. It's sickening really.

not a coincidence that it took a prominent black comedian to bring this up. a white comedian would've been worried about coming off as racist.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

I think it's evidence that we're living in less of a rape culture than we were even a couple decades ago.


Only a couple years after he left office it was revealed that Ronald ****ing Reagan himself raped a girl and no one gave a ****.


Quote:
Reagan met starlet Selene Walters in a Hollywood nightclub in the cart) 1950s. Although I was on a date," she quotes Walters as saying, "Ronnie kept whispering in my ear, 'I'd like to call you. How can I get in touch with you?' " Hoping that Reagan, then president of the Screen Actors Guild, could boost her career, Walters gave him her address and was surprised when he came calling at 3 A.M. "He pushed his way inside and said he just had to see me. He forced me on the couch...and said, 'Let's just get to know each other.' It was the most pitched battle I've ever had, and suddenly in a matter of seconds I lost.... They call it date rape today...."

I think the argument is for a team though; ie a franchise, over time.

Aren't polygraph tests 100% accurate by now? That would make things simple.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

This one time Oprah stuck her dick in my mouth and told me not to tell anyone.

In all seriousness though, hopefully something actually gets done about Cosby this time, he's a deplorable human being. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets swept under the rug again though, because Bill Cosby.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

Guy I knew in Vegas in the 90s told me then that he often dealt with Cosby in the 70s. Said Cos always had a different young lady with him, and that none of them were his wife.

Take that for what it's worth. I certainly had trouble believing it then, though the guy telling me was not the sort to spin tall tales. As more and more Cos stuff came to light over the years, my skepticism eroded, and now I'll believe anything.

polygraphs are prop to fool the gullible and ignorant, they have no "lie detecting" capabilities.

Re: Bill Cosby Is A Scumbag

What's stupid about the presumption of innocence? I've never understood why Cosby was so loved, and I've never been a fan, so I'm no apologist. But I don't know one way or the other whether or not he's actually a serial rapist. Concluding from what Cosby is accused of having done in the 1970s that we now live in a "rape culture" is a ridiculous overreach.
