Bill Cosby is an outspoken Democrat. But over the past several years, Cosby has railed against ‘entitled’ Americans for their ‘thuggish’ behavior and for remaining uneducated.
Cosby — since the 60s — has been telling the truth about society, through the lens of humor. But now he’s on the Progressive ‘hit list’ of political correctness, for calling out his own ‘people,’ suffering through a series of seemingly endless rape allegations.
Furthermore, these allegations are breaking along political lines. Progressives have automatically labeled Bill Cosby a “serial rapist,” while Conservatives see the allegations as part of a media effort to control the black vote by targeting popular black people who are at odds with the ‘black community.’
All this attention came after comedian Hannibal Buress told the audience to “Google Cosby,’ then went on to call Cosby a rapist during a performance Philadelphia. Buress admits that he hates Cosby after the elder comedian said, “Pull your pants up, black people.”
Buress is talking about a speech Cosby gave to the NAACP in May 2004 commemorating the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education that desegregated schools. During the speech, Cosby said the black community could not continue to blame whites for their social problems.
Cosby also criticized black women for having children with multiple partners, black parent’s spending money on sneakers instead of Hooked on Phonics, adding, “We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a damned thing about Africa.”
Incidentally, Buress’ online stand-up bits have gained in viewership since making his provocative statements. Meanwhile, the ‘Cos’ has been subjected to the cancellation of shows, reruns and appearances — as well as castigation — in the past few weeks.
Yesiree, there ain’t nothin’ like a good old-fashioned Internet lynch mob to keep the rife-rafe in line.
