Bill Cosby, Dirty And Guilty Old Shit, Admits To Being A Dirty And Guilty Old Shit

Gerardo Mora/Getty Images

 

Bill Cosby actually said out his own actual mouth that he bought actual drugs to sedate actual women. Women he, in his own words, “wanted to have sex with.” He also actually admitted out his own actual mouth that he gave the actual drugs to at least one actual woman. When you sedate a person before sleeping with them, they can no longer consent. Sex without consent is rape.

And he actually admitted all of this during an actual trial where he was being sued by an actual woman claiming that he also actually drugged and sexually assaulted her; a case he actually settled out of actual court.

Again, these things actually happened.

And I say this now because, unless you believe Bill Cosby’s brain and balls were somehow infiltrated, corrupted, and programmed by The Man like Billy Dee in Undercover Brother, you cannot continue to believe there is some byzantine plot to disgrace the name of a 77-year-old man who no one (I repeat: NO ONE) was actively thinking about until the allegations started to avalanche last year. It is no longer possible for you to construct a convincing defense. To do so would be to leave the land of stark improbability and enter the sea of definite impossibility. Basically, you would be a crazy person.

There is no conspiracy here. No chicanery. Just a dirty and guilty old man letting everyone — including those who refuse to believe he’s dirty and guilty — see his dirt and guilt.

    I do slightly believe one of the take down theories. (Don’t stone me) however, I also, believed the rape allegations had to be true. He worked in an industry where everyone will cover for you as long as you benefit them and the minute you don’t they air you out and let you hang and I believe that’s what happened here. His peers and staff that are coming out and talking now we’re the same people covering his tracks back then.

    • Epsilonicus

      But he was dumb enouugh to give them something

      • JennyJazzhands

        He was also dumb enough to think that the people covering for him while he was making them money would continue to do so. As long as Cosby was a cash cow all of this was concealed by a whole lot of people.

        • Epsilonicus

          One should never assume their crimes will be covered

          • JennyJazzhands

            That is usually the downfall of arrogant A-holes.

  • Sleepy Time Warrior

    So the man who played a wholesome hardworking father on TV who in real life admonished low income Blacks for not adhering to respectability politics while behaving in a way that displayed his disrespect of women and Black folks who he demanded to turn a blind eye to his deplorable acts admits to these acts and being a piece of sh*t….

    …quel surprise.

    Yeah that was a super long run on sentence…fight me.

    • Brooklyn_Bruin

      Funniest part of this is the judge unsealed the deposition because Bill Cosby went from being a public figure to a public servant *because* of his moralizing.

      Had he not been throwing rocks, he could have gotten away with it.

      The other messed up part is that as a condition for the settlement, the poor woman had to maintain a 3.0 average.

      • Sleepy Time Warrior

        The h3ll? So her settlement was basically a rape scholarship.

  • So I thought he was guilty too but the problem that I have is that when Jill Scott wanted to wait until he was proven guilty and has now retracted her previous support, they are acting like she did the raping too! We all know darn well that she had a point when she said Black men in America are often guilty before any proof. I respect the fact that of her at least owning up to her statements. Now the truth needs to come out about all these other rapists in Hollywood.

    • Epsilonicus

      Naw. Jill gotta take this fade.

      • I get it, to appease all of the blood hungry white folk who often are quiet about their other beloved rapists. Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, and director Bryan Singer.

        • Epsilonicus

          Most of the folks i saw going at her were Black.

          • TLati

            That’s interesting. Well the peanut gallery is loud on US Weekly in the comments section. Why I was even reading that trash. Idk.

            • Epsilonicus

              I dont read the comments on most news stories.

              Black folks were going in her on Twitter

        • Big Daddy Suede

          X-men, Usual Suspects Bryan Singer??? Never heard about that one.

          • TLati

            https://youtu.be/2heFHDR2En8

            The victims case was in the news too.
            I believe it. Creeps.

            • Big Daddy Suede

              Which reminds me they are still running Marathons of 7th Heaven. I’m like for real???

        • miss t-lee

          Folks went in on Jill because she was loud and wrong. From jump, she wanted more evidence, as if she didn’t already have enough before yesterday.

    • Cleojonz

      Except there was already a lot of proof. There was a deposition, out of court settlement and 30 plus women saying so. How much more proof was necessary?

      • TLati

        True. Moms was on the bandwagon after Beverly Johnson spoke her peace. Ms. Johnson can tell no lie.

      • miss t-lee

        SO MUCH PROOF.

      • Women are subhuman. Who would ever believe anything a woman says? A man has to say it to make it true. Everyone knows that.

      • RewindingtonMaximus

        I’m not sure what you expect from people who formed their entire childhood and adult lives off what Bill Cosby represented as a public figure. Everyone is quick to wave a finger about right and wrong, but forget all people are not built the same. Some of us can detach from our perception to accept reality, while other people fight tooth and nail to keep the bubble intact.

        • Cleojonz

          Apparently Whoopi is still FIRMLY in his corner. You’d think people would just not make a comment, would just STFU in the face of the truth but to actually make a comment on his behalf? I don’t see how that can be done at this point. Express shock and disappointment at least. No one is trying to bring him down. He did this ish to himself.

          • RewindingtonMaximus

            You can say that but there always instances where people stand with a bloody knife in their hand, and their loved ones are like “nooo, he didn’t do it, trust me he didn’t”.

            Its called shock. Especially when you trust people deeply. I’m never going to say she’s right. She isn’t. But I can understand why she’s stuck…its hard to break that bubble, because it means not only is everything a lie, but now you got to question yourself as to what kind of a person you are for believing someone like that, and how could you not see the signs for yourself.

            Some people go to the grave believing the lie no matter how much the truth came out.

            • Cleojonz

              This is true. Continuing with the lie is probably easier for some than facing what type of person you might be for standing so hard for something so wrong in the first place.

              • RewindingtonMaximus

                Think about racism. Think about how many people fight the idea that anyone of color deserves respect with such vigor and venom. They don’t want their bubble popped. They can’t handle being wrong about life.

          • Epsilonicus

            Think of this too. One of the women was on CNN and said her raped happened at the height of the Central Park 5 case. Just think. There were 5 kids falsely accused and fighting for their lives while Cosby was actually walking the streets committing rape and being free.

            • Cleojonz

              That really is an important contrast in wealth and privilege. Those kids got railroaded and did YEARS in jail. Cosby admitted this on the record a decade ago but it can’t be that he was a horrible psychopath, it had to be that the system is trying to bring one of the good ones down!

              • Epsilonicus

                When she said that, she was referencing the fact that she felt so much pressure to make black people look bad bc of the Central Park 5 She said it was so much pressure to not say anything about Cosby because of that.

                My first thought was these damn kids suffering while he walked free.

                • Amber

                  The model Beverly Johnson said something similar that she didn’t want to be the black woman to bring a black man of his status down.

  • Cleojonz

    This is why I really don’t trust the respectability police. My husband’s grandmother once said about her DIL that she was saved for a reason. There is always some horrible side of themselves they are trying to atone for or trying to act like they are so against because they are repressing that part of themselves. Those stupid Duggars, every Republican senator railing against homesexuality only to be caught in a bathroom with a f*ckboy. Mr. Cosby is one of the worst because he really put himself out there on his high horse and what he did was illegal and he will never actually really pay for it. What kind of blinders does his wife have on? How do his four daughters continue to stand with him now as women?

    • DBoySlim

      DIL?

      • Cleojonz

        Daughter in Law.

  • Beauty In Truth

    So I’m gonna’ just go there: HIS WIFE IS JUST AS DIRTY AND GUILTY. SHE KNEW WTF WAS GOING ON.

    ITCHES WILL DO ANYTHING FOR A STEADY PAYCHECK AND COMFY LIFE.

    That is all.

    • miss t-lee

      I’m also starting to think Camille isn’t exactly innocent in all of this.

      • Beauty In Truth

        Why give her a benefit of a doubt? Oh I forgot, us women are dumb and helpless and not smart enough to know when our husbands are off drugging young girls at parties. Because, you know, all I really care about are these Jimmy Choos.

        • miss t-lee

          You married to someone that long, I’m pretty sure you know the deal.

    • Siante

      I understand where you’re coming from because I felt the same way at first but..

      From the information we have it seems Bill had some serious sociopathic tendencies which means he was able to lie without a pesky conscience getting in the way lol. After years of deception and manipulation a sociopath can have a hypnotizing “cult leader like effect” on those that are closest to him/her, so I dont blame Mrs. Cosby at all. She was a victim in a very abusive relationship. #lyingisemotionalabuse

      • Beauty In Truth

        Nah nah. I’m not w/that. Women have responsibility too. As far as I’m concerned you have to literally play dumb to not know that the man you are with ain’t about ish. Did you see Aaron Hernandez’s wife bury that box, then testify as if she was completely oblivious to the fact that her husband with expressed egotism and criminal tendencies had just committed a murder (Smirk on her face through the whole testimony).

        She chose to look the other way. You don’t never put anything past anyone, not even your spouse. She is just as wrong. So as long as “your” life is good and comfy you don’t care what your man does on the side with his groupies. That’s gross.

        • Siante

          I guess this is a soft spot because I’m studying to help women in abusive relationships so although you could be right, Camille could be a cold blooded beeeeeeeeitch who knew about the rapes & only cared about her comfy life & the $$$$$$$, it’s also quite possible that she’s been the victim (for years) of a master manipulator….

          • RewindingtonMaximus

            But either way she’d be guilty. You’re guilty for being manipulated for 4 decades and never having the courage to do something about it, and you’re guilty if you knew and did nothing except put your hand out for some cash.

            • Siante

              “Manipulation is a way to covertly influence someone with indirect, deceptive, or abusive tactics. Manipulation may seem BENIGN or even FRIENDLY or FLATTERING, as if the person has your highest concern in mind, but in reality it’s to achieve an ulterior motive.”

              To blame a person for being manipulated is unfair unless we know EVERY aspect of that relationship. A master manipulator does everything in their power to keep their victims in the dark through lies & deceit, etc. We dont know if Cosby was beating on her, we just don’t know. But w/ the level of devil he’s shown himself to be I don’t think it’s fair to blame Camille until we know the facts & hear her side of things.
              I understand how people can feel that way but I also understand there’s a lot of education that still hasn’t reached the public regarding abusive relationships and people with sociopathic, narcissistic, bpd and other personality disorders. For abusers it is about power & control

              • Beauty In Truth

                Watch more lifetime, or stop lying to yourself just so you can keep all them girls in envy on your fabulous Facebook timeline. Ah-No. See this is a big problem here: when women don’t stand up to help other women, they are also a part of the issue. We are not all brainless and always “victims” of some superior male manipulator. No I don’t know the whole story. But come on now.

                • esa

                  ~ See this is a big problem here: when women don’t stand up to help other women, they are also a part of the issue.

                  or maybe just stand up for themselves. i think that if everyone made took a stand at every viable opportunity life presented us with, we would be fly as fukk. i mean, it might take a lifetime to learn something as basic and profound as personal integrity, but to learn it is to live it, and that is perhaps the greatest gift we can give ourselves ~*~

                • January Jones

                  So you brow beat her into agreeing with your stance? That’s called bullying and victimizing. You’re speaking from your spective and how you might have handled, but you cannot know what went on between a married couple if you aren’t there to witness first hand. Sure women can be a life line to those women less fortunate in the way of giving a helping hand, but it’s not our responsibility.

                  • Guest

                    “Sure women can be a life line to those women less fortunate in the way
                    of giving a helping hand, but it’s not our responsibility.”

                    No one was brow beating her to agree. I was making my point. However your comment is gross. And women of your mindset are the classless, ruthless ones who could care less about morals, or helping women overall. You would be the perfect dictators wife. And will do anything to have their way with a man whether is is available or not. Don’t ask for anyone’s sympathy when you are dealing with abuse at the hands of another man dear. Just don’t.

              • RewindingtonMaximus

                While the psychologist in me agrees 100%, the realist in me knows public opinion would never sway that way, because people don’t understand that logic.

                • Siante

                  That’s a good point. There’s still alot the general public doesn’t understand regarding the dynamics of abusive relationships, especially lying & manipulation as forms of emotional abuse.

                  • RewindingtonMaximus

                    Indeed. My mother was a director for a women’s shelter. I’m clear on the effects of abuse but if you dont understand psychology and how the mind works when manipulated, it becomes easy to play armchair general about what someone should do in hindsight, after the fact.

                    • Siante

                      #preach, lol

                    • Beauty In Truth

                      And you as a man have so much more insight. Good for your mother. I am a woman who has both endured emotional and physical abuse. So I can speak on it. So you can hush.

                      I’m not saying what she “should” have done. I’m saying from a neutral and objective moral standpoint that not doing anything, is wrong. Funny in some posts you tell women that they have the strength to just do better, while in others we are helpless. I also love your passive-aggressive backhanded comment about “armchair action.”

          • esa

            from my limited experience, i’ve been amazed by what the a disordered mind will do to rationalize criminal activity. one may literally sacrifice their sanity in an attempt to avoid dealing directly with the sociopath who lives in their house and poses an unrealized threat. self abdication is one of the most disturbing forms of tragedy to live in the flesh—or to witness firsthand.

            • Siante

              “one may literally sacrifice their sanity in an attempt to avoid dealing directly with the sociopath who lives in their house and poses an unrealized threat.”

              This is so true, it’s human nature to want to believe the best about someone you love.

              • Epsilonicus

                Even more so when that person has created a lifestyle you don’t want to give up

                • Siante

                  That’s true in some cases, but there have been victims of abuse who lived in deplorable conditions and refused to blow the whistle on their abuser (when they had a chance) due to severe Stockholm syndrome & the false sense of loyalty that comes with that— so I guess it’s different in every situation.

                  • Epsilonicus

                    I wholeheartedly agree.

                    We assume Camille is a victim when in reality we just don’t know. Just as easily as she could be a victim, she also coulda said eff those women imma keep living in luxury. I might be too cynical for my own good.

              • Guest

                No it’s not. It’s naive nature. Anyone is capable of doing wrong. Even those who share a bedroom, legal contract, or bloodline. Not everyone realizes this straight away though.(B.I.T.)

        • So are you suggesting that women have a greater responsibility to their own sex/gender than their own family?

          • RewindingtonMaximus

            Good question. I’m curious now.

          • Beauty In Truth

            You trying to pull it there? I will say this: Women often like to play as if we are the all loving cumbayah community that loves and supports each other till no end. But that is honestly just not the case. Many women are self serving and could care less about another woman they “don’t know” on either side.

            I don’t think we have “greater responsibility” but you can’t ask for a solution to perpetual misogyny and rape culture, but selectively chose when you (personally) will showcase some morals and class to another woman. I hope that makes sense.

            • moderation

                ??

            • I think evil is contagious no doubt, this is why people engage in such terrible behavior during war.

              As for sociopathy/psychopathy, such judgments are usually all based on the hindsight bias. Take for instance Nostradamus; he wrote a lot of predictions which are vague and don’t make sense, but after many years, people have been able to pick and choose elements from his predictions and compare them to events that have already passed. In other words, they simply pick and choose things that he wrote, based on what they want him to say…I used to be a Jehovah’s Witness, the entire foundation of the religion was based on predicting Armageddon for over a 100 years based on biblical prophecy.

              It’s the same thing with declaring someone to be a sociopath or psychopath after they’ve committed a vile act and they’ve become aware of it. Rather than making judgments on a persons psyche, based on the entirety of their life and behavior, they use various elements or parts of a person life to define the person’s mentality, based on scenes or parts of their lives that fit the movie they want to tell, that they are confusing with reality. The unintended consequence, is that they deny the roll or free will, and more importantly choice in the act of being evil.

          • esa

            maybe it is that (non-sociopathic) people have a conscience, thus giving them an ethical responsibility to serve truth and justice above all. that, and, the act of harboring a criminal makes one an accessory after the fact.

            • I don’t really believe in sociopathy/psychopathy…personal philosophical opinion, it’s always after the fact, and reminds me very much of the Nostradamus bias i.e. no one can foresee it or interpret it and thus make accurate predictions, but one can claim that it was obvious, only after the fact. But that’s another conversation

              That being said, I’m not saying if she knew she not guilty, I’m saying that as a person involved in such a situation, it’s easy from the outside looking in to say that someone should come out and speak out, which is why it’s also easy to overlook consequences and personal investment. Take for instance the issue of Frank Lucas (via American Gangster); his mother and his wife knew he killed people, flooded the streets of NYC with drugs, probably ruined the lives of several families and people…yet they didn’t go out there and announce it to the world? It’s easy, too easy (almost narcissistic), to think that given such a situation, money is the only thing that prevents people from coming out and exposing the truth on such an issue…if everyone wanted to be a hero, heroes wouldn’t be unique.

                i didnt say this. i dont presume to know the reasons why people rationalize their choices. what i do know from personal experience (narcissistic reference) is that living in the same house as a criminal makes people act and think in all sorts of unethical manners. whew. praise God if you dont know the half of it.

                ~ I don’t really believe in sociopathy/psychopathy…

                The hindsight bias you mentioned is really interesting. I have to look into that……..

              • Guest

                So if they remained silent they are also guilty in committing the crimes. Another human dying at the hands of your son or husband isn’t enough to make you turn them in? Nah nah. My son would’ve been turned in. Not everyone turns a blind eye to their relatives malevolence just because they are “blood.” The rare amongst us actually posses this thing called ethics and morals. (B.I.T.)

              • towninc

                Thank You, I get tired of hearing “she stayed for the $” in so many situations. She may or may not have known. Maybe she stayed because people can be loyal to a fault. I’m not saying I would’ve been loyal to him, but let’s not just say she was money hungry.

                • Also even if she knew, to what extent? Let’s not forget they are from a different era where men stepping out was par for the course. She maybe have know he was unfaithful but that he was out there drugging women, maybe not.

                  • Beauty In Truth

                    These are all excuses for immoral behavior. Who cares if she was from that era. Hll, modern racists have grown up with parents of a certain era? Does it excuse their behavior? We can’t have our cake and eat it too, or can we?

                    • how cute and idealistic. Now I’mma go back to the real world now.

                    • Beauty In Truth

                      Yes the real world is full of “women” like you. Luckily you are the type that would probably do well defending yourself against police brutality, rape, and any other bodily infraction on your person, since “like” no one in the “real world” has morals or ethics. I’m gonna go back to calling out people on their bs, and not making excuses for timid behavior by weak women who possess zero to no morals such as yourself.

                • Beauty In Truth

                  So loyalty is greater than morality? Hmmm, should be a topic for a VSB post.

    I just want to know what people will do with this information now. A lot of layers to peel back. Rape. Public figures lying. Using a public persona to have multiple generations of people blindly believe in a lifestyle and family setting that they couldn’t have but possibly attain to. The treatment of women when they are violated. The treatment of women when they are violated by a respected public figure, and how that public figure will always be more important than any woman. Most importantly….how committed to the bubble people are and how they will fight reality to protect perception.

    Yes, Bill is a horrible human being for what he has done. But you all seem to forget…there was a whole team behind his protection, the silence of these women, and the media’s dismissal of information.

    There is enough blame to go in all directions, so don’t just point the finger in one.

    Wait a minute you guys, I thought that we had all agreed via the secret diaspora telepathic network that we were treating this situation like OJ, and Michael Jackson to a certain degree. You know the ones who defended him in public secretly admit they were probably guilty. You mean to tell me that there are folks who are still defending his innocence? SMH, that dude needs the Brown Hornet’s hello now lol
