Bill Cosby Serial Rape Hoax By the Numbers-- Devil Is In The Detail

Bill Cosby with wife Camille

 

Due Process? What's That?

I have never been more sure that the Bill Cosby Rape allegations are both a hoax and a pure and simple  media lynching as when I read a story today that should have been entitled “2,600 people give Cosby a standing ovation in Canada,” but  instead bears the title  “Bill Cosby jokes woman should be careful drinking near him.”

The hit is out and the single rule of the game is that Cosby simply must not win no matter what he does. Dick Gregory used to tell a story about the old southern literacy tests  that white folks employed to prevent Blacks from voting. He said that they would give the Black man a reading test on nuclear physics in Russian.

If he couldn’t read it, they told him he failed. If he could read it, he still couldn’t vote because they would tell him that if he could read Russian, he must be a communist. These headlines about Cosby’s alleged actions 40 years ago have no more to do with rape  or sexual violence any more than the literacy test in Mississippi had to do with the ability to read.

If the people running this campaign against Cosby were concerned with rape they would run the headline, Study  by the American Medical Association shows  that 39.7 percent of the women and 22 percent of the men in the Eastern Region of the  Democratic Republic of the Congo have been the victim of Conflict related sexual violence.

Instead there is another story online beginning with the headline “2 New Women Accuse Cosby…” right in line with the Dick Gregory story. When one reads beyond the headline, it turns out that the two women are not new accusers at all, they are previously written about accusers from the original already padded list now simply accusing Cosby of something else.

Apparently the press is running out of Cosby rape or assault accusers.  However, they are so determined to keep the headlines against Cosby going that they are starting to recycle the old accusers.  The two women it turns out are accusing Cosby of defamation because he says their accusations of sexual assault are lies.

Just like the literacy test, if Bill Cosby says nothing  the press says he must be a rapist. If he says the women are lying, then the press says he is defaming them.  The advantage of the defamation suit for the 2 women is that the alleged defamation is current unlike their previously published assault charges which involve allegations of events that are supposed to have happened 44 years ago and 38 years ago respectively.

The first woman, L.J.T. who alleges that Cosby picked her up at a place called the Café Figaro, says that Cosby offered her a ride home but took her to the beach instead. He offered her drugs which she refused then he grabbed her chest and rubbed the front of her body. She ran down the beach to escape him and tore her dress in the process. That is it.  If every word she said is true, the sexual assault charge is because of the alleged chest grabbing and body rubbing done by Cosby before he apparently realized that just because he had picked her up at the Café Figaro she was not that type of girl.

She got back into his car and he bought her a new dress and took her home 44 years ago.   She is now suing Cosby for defamation for calling her a liar. He would undoubtedly beat this  defamation case if instead  of calling her a liar, he had called her a drug trafficker,  a fraud, a batterer and an  ID thief since these are crimes for which this innocent girl from Café Figaro has already been convicted in what is described  in one article as  her extensive criminal past.

The second, woman TPS says that when she was 19 years old, and Cosby was around 39 years old, Cosby came up behind her in a hotel lobby put his arm around her and asked her to marry him. She smiled and he invited her to come to his show. She did. After the show she went to his dressing room which was crowded with people. She waited until all the people left. Maybe she figured the Justice of the Peace would get there soon.  He did not.

Instead Cosby offered her two pills which she accepted.  One article says he told her they were Quaaludes.   She took the Quaaludes from him and put them in her mouth.  “She luded out.” Look it up; it’s similar to an alcohol blackout. She says that her next memory was of Cosby having sex with her. When she went home and told her mother about her evening.  Her mother with the wisdom perhaps of many woman who like her mother made Las Vegas their home, told her “Maybe he will take care of you.”

TPS called Cosby back and continued to see him over the next few weeks, sometimes in a hotel room and would get money from him.  Eventually when she told Cosby she thought she was pregnant she says, “He sent me away.” Her alleged rapist who she had been meeting in his hotel room regularly since the dressing room incident,   in her own words, had to “send (her) away.” Fast forward 20 years later in 1996 she contacted Cosby to ask for money and she says he got indignant with her. She reminded him that he had promised to give her 500 dollars for every A she got in Nursing School. When she finished that conversation with Cosby she was infuriated at the way he had spoken to her. She said she had made up her mind to never contact him again. However, shortly after that conversation Cosby sent her $10,000 dollars directly and had $5,000 dollars given to her from William Morris Agency.  That’s a lot of A’s.

Eight years after that generosity, 28 years after the dressing room incident, the suspected pregnancy and being sent away, and shortly after her own divorce, TPS read about Andrea Costand’s law suit in which Costand accused Cosby of digitally penetrating her while she was under the influence of drugs. Costand said  he had given her 3 blue pills  under the false pretense that they were “an herbal remedy.”   A year after that Costand filed a suit. TPS says when she found out about Costand’s accusations she became angry about what had happened to her so many years ago  and went to the police in Philadelphia--- 28 years after Cosby had sent her away!

Eight years after he had given her a total of$ 15,000 dollars, someone (perhaps the police) saw similarities in her case and Costand’s.  TPS was contacted by Costand’s attorneys   and   agreed to become Jane Doe witness number 10 in Costand’s civil suit. The suit never got to be adjudicated in court because the parties settled.

Fast forward again to 2014 A spate of stories began to appear in the press and on the internet following a Hannibal Burress Comedy routine in which he called Cosby “Smug,” and “a Rapist.” The same press which claimed that this comedy routine went viral began to publish stories in tandem with an ever increasing count of alleged new accusers.  Understand that 14 of these accusers in the count were not new at all and came from Costand’s settled law suit. Cosby refused to respond.

In one of the stories TPS from the Costand suit was recycled, presented anew as around victim 15 or 16. In that story TPS said she had nothing to gain. However, now in 2015, 39 years after the alleged rape she is charging Cosby with defamation. 500 dollars per A is small potatoes in comparison to what is at stake now. In fact she now has quite a bit to gain. For you see when you are white, Defamation around the issue of rape can be very profitable as is illustrated in the Tawana Brawley Case.

In that case the accused white rapist charged Tawana Brawley’s lawyers and advisers of defamation because they had accused him of raping Tawana Brawley. The Court awarded the accused rapist Steven Pagones, $345,000 from them and $185,000 from his alleged victim. That’s right, the woman who as a child accused a man of rape has been ordered to pay her alleged attacker for defaming him when she made that accusation. Brawley, by the way, completed nursing school with no one giving her 500 dollars for every A she received.

But that was a Black woman accusing a white man.  Cosby can expect no such luck because what happens to the accused or the accuser in America has always been determined by race more than any other factor.  In the state of Virginia alone, where Brawley lives,   43  men were legally executed for rape between 1908 and 1963 and not one of them was white.  Don’t be surprised if the same American legal system that awarded cash to the accused perpetrator in the Brawley case will do the  exact reverse by awarding the accusers money in the Cosby Case. Don’t be surprised if they rule that the accused man has defamed his accusers by saying he is innocent.

I do not believe that Cosby raped the two accusers LJT and TPS. Yet their stories are no less believable than the other 20 or so women being presented in a distorted way by the white press to paint Cosby as a serial “rapist.” I could go through the first 22 incidents and in all of them tell why in my opinion they are not credible stories.  However, I don’t even believe that any woman who claims she has been raped or sexually assaulted  should have her story picked apart in the press. I believe that the facts should be argued in a court in privacy. But in the case of Bill Cosby, the press and the bloggers and some of the alleged victims are presenting these one sided incomplete stories and ripping apart any mainstream journalist who asks the alleged victims difficult or politically incorrect questions.

In one of the cases, a woman is accusing Cosby because he gave her pills which she took and caused, her in her opinion, to end up in bed with another man. Seriously she’s on the list and not even accusing Cosby of touching her.  However, the white media is publishing these unsubstantiated accusations on the internet up to 50 years after these women say these incidents happened as if they are gospel.

The sheer numbers are making people say, “How could all 22 women all be lying?”  For those who don’t know the answer to that question I refer you to the following book.    Alien Discussions: Proceedings of the Abduction Study Conference Held at M.I.T. Cambridge, Ma. Textbook Binding – September, 1995.

It’s simply a fact that not only have hundreds of people reported being abducted by aliens and taken on spacecraft. Many of them say the aliens have raped and or fiddled with them sexually. Some even say the aliens impregnated them. I don’t believe them but there are way more than 22 women who claim these things are facts.  It’s not that there aren’t enough of them making these accusations against the aliens for me to believe. It’s not that their stories do not coordinate with each other.  Their stories are quite similar and their descriptions of the perpetrator (s) are similar. I still don’t believe them.

The reason I don’t believe them is because the reality they recount conflicts with reality as I know it. Similarly these women’s accounts do not correlate with the Bill Cosby whose life I have read about. Their stories don’t correlate with the Bill Cosby I saw narrate the documentary  “Black History Lost Stolen or Strayed,” or  the Bill Cosby who gives money to help elderly and infirm jazz musicians,  or the Bill Cosby who funds educational programs for youngsters and donates heavily to institutions of higher learning,  or the Bill Cosby who spoke out about AIDS while holding Jack Felder’s Book, on AIDS and US Biological Warfare,  or the Bill Cosby who  spoke up for Tawana Brawley when it was not popular to do so,  or the Bill Cosby who was concerned enough about the Black Image in Media that he tried to buy NBC to improve that image. These 22 women’s statements certainly conflict with the Bill Cosby whose been married to the same Black woman for 50 years a woman who in the face of all these accusations  still attests to his good  character. 

Hey if either before or after you look at my chart you still believe these accusations. Take solace that according to the white media nearly everyone else believes as you do. I will take solace in the fact that the 2,600 people who gave him a standing Ovation in Canada probably believe more as I do.

I am so glad I believed in the Central Park Five boys’ innocence and spoke out at the time the case happened. They have since been vindicated and proven innocent.

Sometimes all the white media can have it wrong.

Yet I can remember very plainly the strident voices of all the accusers of the young men railroaded in that case.  I remember the specific writers who called them “a rolling mass of pus,” “a wolf pack” and a “melanoma.”  I remember the full page ad by Donald Trump calling essentially for their lynching. In that Ad Trump referred to non specifically to  “roving bands of wild criminals” but  there was no doubt about to whom he was referring. 

In that Ad Trump   also expressed his opposition to  Ed Koch’s  uncharacteristically statesman like call  at the time to the people of New York to  “remove hate and rancor from our hearts.”  Trumps ad said in response to that call, ''I do not think so. I want to hate these muggers and murderers. They should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes.''  I remember the boys crying parents and the boys’ wrongful convictions despite the fact that the DNA found on the Jogger matched none of them. I remember their forced confessions when they gave precise though conflicting and totally false reports of exactly who held the jogger down and  exactly who hit her with a brick and exactly who was carrying a lead pipe.

I actually saw  a video of  Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Lederer telling one of the boys who had a history of retardation, that his fists couldn’t have made the injuries suffered by the Jogger,  so what did he use? The boy trying desperately to satisfy her, said  words to the effect of “a rock, I used a rock.”  Although it was known at the time of the boys conviction for rape that there was 1 type of DNA on her sock and in her cervix  and that it matched none of the boys, Lederer and the other members of the  prosecution  led  the public to believe that the DNA samples  related to the case were inconclusive rather than exculpatory as they in fact, were.  In that regard Lederer engineered  the boys conviction for  a rape they never committed.

I remember how these boys lost their youth and were assaulted in prisons in the worst kinds of units children can be put into, only to have it revealed decades later that they were innocent despite all the witnesses, and newspaper articles screaming their guilt. The 41 million dollar settlement awarded by the courts cannot begin to pay for their suffering sparked and fueled by the inflammatory white press’ rush to judgment.

In the Cosby case, the  white press is again acting like a lynch mob. That’s why any real journalist would refuse to be a part of it.  The bottom line is that Cosby is entitled to the presumption of innocence guaranteed to him by law and the benefit of the doubt earned by his years of service  to the Black Community.  The alleged assault victims should  also have the right to be exempt from the current media circus where they are now simply being used as  pawns in a rigged game of chess between Cosby and the media big boys. Yet the question remains who is behind this rigged game, this coordinated media lynching of Cosby.  Could anyone actually be  going through all this just because Cosby wants to own a network.

One red herring thrown out in the white press this week centers around Donald Trump’s having fired Keisha Knight Pulliam on his  NBC broadcast show, The Apprentice.   Trump says she was fired because she would not contact Bill Cosby to ask for money for charity in a team competition on the show. It is true that Cosby once had nasty words for Trump but  it is doubtful that Trump

has the capability to trigger a media attack as extensive as the current attack against Cosby.  

It is also true that Trump's  defensive Tweet  this week in which he claims the show was filmed before the current attack against Cosby began,  lends credence to the notion of his involvement  in Cosby’s current woes for some.   However,  for me, the  paraphrased words of  Don Corleone apply here.  “T---- is a pimp. He never could never outfight (Cosby). But I didn't know until this day that it was Barzini all along.” For Barzini  perhaps substitute any name at the power level of Stephen Burke,  Jeffrey Zucker or any recent Corporate officer at NBC Universal, NBC News, Comcast or NBC related  entity  who is actually big enough and mean enough  to influence headlines across all media to  destroy  the legacy of one 77 year old Black Icon with a previously spotless reputation.

Here is information excerpted from one Daily News Article  originally reported in April 24, 1989 , with several quotes from then,  Assistant D. A. Elizabeth Lederer

EXCERPT:

Hints of what she (The jogger)  endured were exposed hours earlier in Criminal Court, where the accused youths heard Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Lederer give abbreviated versions of their chilling statements:

“Clarence Thomas, 14, of W. 112th St, quoted fellow pack member Steve Lopez, 15, of Harlem’s Schomburg Plaza housing complex, as saying, “Let’s get a female jogger!” In keeping with the theory that the gang left its victim for dead, Thomas told detectives, “I know who did the murder” and said he would testify before a grand jury. “He admitted holding (the woman) down while others raped her,” Lederer said.

Yusef Salaam, 15, of Schomburg Plaza and a student at Harlem’s Rice Academy, a Catholic school, “made a statement that he hit her with a pipe and grabbed her breasts.”  “He said he did it because ‘It was fun,’” according to Lederer.

Karey Wise, 16, a Schomburg resident who is one of two pack members who will be treated as adults, downplayed the charges against him, saying “he only played with the lady’s legs after others knocked her down.” “Wise gave shocking details in terms of the account of where the body was taken, dragged, and left,” Lederer said.  Wise’s attorney, Colin Moore, told the judge his client “admitted playing with her underpants.”

Raymond Santana, 14, of E. 119th St., a student at Junior High School 117, “grabbed (her) and hit her with a brick. He said he felt her (breasts),” Lederer said.

Antron McCray, 15, of W. 111th St., a student at Career Academy Junior High School, said “he mounted the body and kicked the woman: he named Salaam as hitting her with a pipe,” according to the prosecutor.

Michael Briscoe, of Madison Ave., who at 17 is the oldest of the suspects and will be treated as an adult, “made plans with several people to go ‘wilding’ … several days before the incident.”  The bespectacled Briscoe has a prior juvenile record that was not disclosed. Sources said he was serving a term of five years’ probation. Other defendants said Briscoe “smashed the victim with a rock.”

Kevin Richardson, 14, of Schomburg Plaza, admitted chasing the victim and said Lopes, McCray and Santana “pushed her down to the ground,” Lederer said.
