It must an incredible feeling being a liberal in America today, knowing that by virtue of your station in life, or the color of your skin, the rules that bind others simply don’t apply to you.
Damon Wayans put forth a blustering defense of fellow comedian Bill Cosby on Friday that makes the Democrats’ charge that Republicans are waging a “war on women” look like a spitball fight.
With a small army of women having now come forward to claim Cosby sexually assaulted them years ago, Wayans turned his sights on the victims, repeatedly referring to them as “bitches.”
But that was only the beginning. Wayans went so far as to say that some of the women were “un-rape-able,” a crude reference to their appearance.
Suffice it to say that if a public figure on the right had made such remarks, the liberal media would have already drawn and quartered him by now. But coming from a black man who’s in with today’s hip crowd, there has been nary a ripple in the news cycle.
Wayans was interviewed on the radio program “The Breakfast Club,” and was asked by host Angela Yee what advice he might have for Cosby.
“If I was him, I would divorce my wife — wink, wink — give her all my money, and then I would go to a deposition,” the comedian replied. “I’d light one of them three-hour cigars, I’d have me some wine, and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe he was raping.”
He went on to say he thinks Cosby was involved in relationships with the nearly 50 women who have come forward, and that they all cried rape when the 78-year-old comedian tried to end things.
As ludicrous as that sounded, Wayans then attacked the appearance of some of the women.
“Some of them, really, is un-rape-able,” he said. “I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!’”
The consistent theme throughout was to blame the women.
“Look, I understand fame,” he added later. “I’ve lived it. Women will throw themselves at you. They just want to be in your presence.”
Wayans’ conscience apparently surfaced momentarily, as he said at one point that his “heart goes out” to any true victims.
“For anybody who was raped by Bill Cosby, I’m sorry, and I hope you get justice,” he said.
Before long, though, he was back to calling the women “bitches” and defending Cosby, who allegedly drugged the women before sexually assaulting them.
“What’s the joy of banging someone that’s asleep?” Wayans asked.
Here’s the full interview, with the remarks about Cosby coming at about the 26-minute mark:
