Skip to comments.Steyn: Why Is Bill Cosby Finished While Bill Clinton Is Not? â€” â€˜Like Racism Thingâ€™
Posted on 12/30/2015 4:51:39 PM PST by VinL
In filling in for talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday, conservative commentator Mark Steyn drew a comparison between Bill Cosby, who has lost much of his exposure after allegations that he may have raped numerous have come to the forefront, and former President Bill Clinton, who reportedly will be campaigning for his wife, Democratic presidential Hillary Clinton.
Steyn pointed out that one has become persona non grata while the other has been universally embraced as "the most beloved guy in America."
"I mean that as a seriously question incidentally," Steyn said. "Why is Bill Cosby finished? He was the most beloved guy. We keep hearing Bill Clinton is the most beloved guy in America. 'If Bill Clinton was on the ticket, heâd sweep all 50 states. It would be a landslide. Americans love Bill Clinton.' They loved Bill Cosby, nice grandfatherly Bill Cosby. But somehow, for some reason, you don't see 'The Bill Cosby Show' on TV anymore. You don't see it on the rerun channels. He is not appearing anywhere."
"You'd almost think it's some kind of like racism thing," he continued. "That somehow, when a bunch of women make accusations against the black guy, boom, he's vaporized. When a bunch of women make accusations against some white southern redneck, where talking about putting him back in the White House for another eight years as first gentleman."

Bill Cosby just isn’t as powerful and connected as Slick Willie.
That’s the botom line.
Cosby is far better off than the average wage slave would be faring.
It is all relative.
I had a similar thought today.
Well Cosby raped a bunch of women while Clinton——oops.
Exposure was Cosby's PROBLEM. So to speak.
He was protected all these years until he stepped one toe off the plantation.
Trump need to offer to finance the legal costs for every sexual assault claimant against Bill Clinton at this time .
Let him have it , with both barrels . No mercy . Decimate the Clintons , utterly wipe them out .
racism? A replacement for Rush said this? Ones an actor and one was a governor and then President. I think he had a little bit more power and influence than an actor. also didn’t he get away with it for like 30 years?
Bill Clinton had the "War Room" headed by his *wife*...and by George Stephanopoulos, now a bigwig at ABC News.
Also we had the Nina Burleigh effect, where the females in the press swooned over Bill, in the hopes they'd get to service him personally.
And I believe the reports are that Cosby used sedatives, instead of his role as Governor or President, to lower the women's, umm, "sales-resistance."
Because Cosby made a couple non-PC comments about race relations, so he lost the LSM’s cover. It’s that simple.
It never was, is, nor never will be about the ill-defined and confused terms and concepts of “racism” and “sexism”. It is about Left vs. Right and political advantage, Cosby’s reported support of Hillary Clinton notwithstanding.
Well that’s because we all know that the Democrats are racist, not to mention sexist.
the employees of the MSM won't do any fact checking.
It's the Clintons and the MSM employees will be flak chucking to protect the Clintons.
That and the fact Clinton has a crime syndicate any Mafioso would be proud of.
In all seriousness, I am not even convinced that what Cosby did is nearly bad as it is being characterized. Back in the seventies and early eighties lots of people took drugs to “heighten” their sexual experience. Cosby could have gotten all the women he wanted, he didn’t need to drug them. At least a few women have come forward who admitted to doing drugs and sex with Cosby, and both sex and drugs were completely consensual. It was “normal” back then, and expected. Sounds more like a bunch of chicks he had casual sex with who are trying to score some dough off the old horndog. Sucks to be him, but I seriously question whether he was the predator he is being made out to be, and whether or not Clinton wasn’t worse. Clinton forceably raped women and used his office to intimidate them. Paula Jones was escorted to his hotel suite by armed state troopers, and presented with the spectacle of Clinton in his briefs with an erection, for Gawd’s sake, demanding that she kiss it.
Bill Clinton needs to check his White Privilege.
Blackliesmatter needs to be protesting Clinton.
Also remember Herman Cain?
Bill Clinton, white male priviledge lets him still be admired while Bill Cosby is destroyed with same accusations
Please,please please protest the clintons blackliesmatters for that racial injustice!
