Bill Cosby Says He “Has No Remorse,” Calls Himself A “Political Prisoner” & Compares Himself To MLK & Ghandi
Prior to imprisonment, actor Bill Cosby was heavily involved in community affairs and politics. And even now, he reportedly, considers his three to ten year sentence an extension of his political efforts.
The legendary comedian has released a statement via his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, stating that he has “no remorse” for his sexual assault convictions, and believes that he was sacrificed by the District Attorney. He said:
“Here’s why I, have no remorse and will never have remorse. I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars; I waived my 5th amendment rights; I was declared Not Guilty in 2005 by the Commonwealth – never charged. However, a low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now. Not for justice, but for their political aspirations. They say, ‘Mr. Cosby, you must attend these classes.’ Why? One word. Entrapment!”
He continued, explaining that he is merely a political prisoner, likening himself to famous civil rights leaders who were once thrown in jail:
“My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron. So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners – Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis. I stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I Smile. The Truth is Strong!”
This comparison only adds to the controversial things Bill Cosby has said while incarcerated. As we previously reported, the actor is reportedly pretending to be his “Cosby Show” character, Dr. Huxtable, among his fellow inmates. A source said:
“[Bill Cosby] believes he learned a lot about how to cure people and speak to patients after playing Dr. Huxtable for nearly eight years on ‘The Cosby Show.’ He is accepting appointments from inmates to help diagnose anything from a cold to obesity. If he thinks they’re incurable, he refers them to the infirmary with a ‘preliminary diagnosis.’”
The source added:
“He told us that he wore a bedsheet like an ‘apron’ to get into character. He said his medical skills are a ‘tad rusty’ since he played Dr. Huxtable, but he’s still ‘hip’ to the ‘role.’”
Do you agree or disagree with Bill Cosby’s political statement?
