Colin Cowherd Goes In On Bill Cosby Defenders And Conspiracy Theorists In General
July 8 / Jake O'Donnell / SportsGrid
Say what you will about Colin Cowherd's broad brush strokes, his massive forehead, or his stubborn refusal to acknowledge he was wrong about John Wall -- just don't say he's scared to take zealots to task for ignoring reality in order to continue believing shit they really really want to be true.
Joe Paterno, Tom Brady, Ryan Braun -- it doesn't matter what the context, some fans just can't seem to accept that their heroes aren't perfect.
Cowherd opened Wednesday's program by going all-in on the people who defended Bill Cosby -- people like Whoopi Goldberg and his "Cosby Show" co-star Phylicia Rashad -- after 25 women came forward alleging the exact same thing: Bill Cosby drugged and raped them.
We now know these accusations to be true to high degree of certainty, insofar as Bill Cosby admitted to obtaining Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women whom he planned on having sex with, which was revealed in a newly released 2005 deposition.
Cowherd's operating thesis is that men, in particular, are increasingly susceptible to the "worship gene" as they get older.
"They call radio shows and argue, take silly positions to the very end when it's obvious they don't know what they're talking about," he said. "I'm asking scientists to find a cure for the worship gene because it's making men look stupid."
For the record, the three most outspoken Cosby defenders are women.
"Newly unsealed testimony comes out and, oh, Cosby admits it," he continued. "Now all those people are like, 'Ok, I did have a feeling.'"
"Oh really? What a sharpie. Congratulations. He raped 25 women and you had a feeling he was a rapist? Pat yourself on the back for that one."
