 The media's selective rape outrage

It appears that comedian Bill Cosby is not as Teflon-coated as President Obama.

The media is not condemning his accusers as racists. Indeed, the mainstream media is salivating as each accuser pops up to accuse Cos of being a rapist and sexual predator. These accusations had been stewing for years until an unknown comic annoyed at Cosby's barbs at foul mouthed comics, called the veteran comic a serial rapist. Now Cosby's accusers are cropping up as often as Jonathan Gruber videos and the post election media coverage is once again being selective in its reportage. While some pundits are wondering why these charges against Bill Cosby are being aired now, I'm more annoyed that the media is obsessed with these rape allegations while still ignoring those made against media-protected individuals.

Remember Juanita Broadwick or Eileen Wellstone? Of course you don't if you only read the mainstream press. These women accused Bill Clinton of rape and they had significant evidence and witnesses. How about, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, a former Miss America and the following: Carolyn Moffet, Paula Corbin, Sandra Ellen James, Christy Zercher, and Kathryn Willey? These and other unnamed students accused Clinton of sexual assault. Most were reported and documented but no charges were ever made and the most public allegation came from Paula Corbin aka Paula Jones who sued him for sexual damages when he was president.

The hot news today is that a former NBC employee says that he stood guard outside Cosby's dressing room while he entertained young models. He said he also arranged to secure apartments and payments for Cosby's liaisons with these women. It's ironic that those who obviously facilitated Cosby's adulterous behavior are now seeking to profit from these exposures of events that occurred over 30 years ago. We can probably expect more details of David Letterman's sexual abuse case in another 20 years or so when he is no longer the King of CBS.

Bill Clinton had his most prurient episodes guarded by state troopers who turned on him in 1993 after he had risen to the highest office in the land. Troopers Larry Patterson and Roger Perry detailed life with Arkansas Governor Clinton in an American Spectator article written by the now left wing David Brock, founder of Media Matters. They mentioned a woman named Paula in the article which led to Paula Jones nee Corbin suing Clinton for damages caused by the revelation of the incident when the Governor exposed himself to her. This scandal along with the Monica Lewinsky one ultimately led to impeachment of the president. Since Bill Clinton now enjoys a reputation as an elder statesman and one of the most favored Presidents, his predatory inclinations mean nothing to modern feminists as long as he remains supportive of a woman's right to choose. I found that article more illuminating about Hillary Clinton who is described as foul-mouthed and well aware of her husband's peccadillos which she ignored for her own self-interests.

I'm sure it's not much of a revelation to say that I've never been a supporter of the Clintons but I had a hard time accepting the fact that so many seriously negative reports on them meant nothing to the American voter. The National Enquirer and the Star ran explosive exposés about the Governor's sordid escapades that involved a possible illegitimate child. I dared to repeat these allegations to my California kool-aid drinking relative who then refused to talk to me for two years. Another told me that she couldn't vote for George H.W. Bush in 1992 because he was too old. It hasn't always been like this but at least since 1992, Jonathan Gruber's assessment of our electorate is dead on. \

Perverts, predators, tax cheats and other mercenary politicians still get elected here in the United States and we pretend that those who accuse them are not completely credible but are we headed towards the same PC dominated public as existing in the U.K. that shuts their eyes to evil? Will the sharia-loving officials that ignored the cries of the 1,400 rape victims including many underage girls make their way here or are we just too far gone?

Our PC media hasn't done much reporting on this shocking news because the predators are Muslims and this segment of society get protection from our Justice Department and a White House that has several Muslim Brotherhood members on staff. Don't believe me? Just check out their names on the White House site but don't expect to see their affiliation with the Brotherhood. You will have to research that link yourself or go to Frontpage.com. Forget checking that rumor on snopes.com because this is not the impartial fact-checking source as reputed.

You would have to read the article in Breitbart London by the esteemed journalist, James Delingpole, who wrote,

"Q: When is the sexual abuse of children culturally, socially and politically acceptable? A: When it's committed with industrial efficiency by organised gangs of mainly Pakistani men in English Northern towns like Burnley, Oldham and Rotherham, of course.

But obviously you're not allowed to admit this or you might sound racist. That's why, for example, in today's BBC report into the fact that at least 1400 children were subjected to "appalling" sexual abuse in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, you have to wade 20 paragraphs in before finally you discover the ethnic identity of the perpetrators."

Delingpole goes on to quote details from an Independent Inquiry: "In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation were previously known to services because of child protection and neglect. It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators."

While Bill Cosby's fall from grace gets beaucoup coverage without waiting for more than 'he said, she said' documentation; the victims of Bill Clinton and predatory Muslims get ignored by the criminally negligent accomplices in the media.
