Brutally anti-gay Scott Lively says that the allegations against Bill Cosby, who is now in jail, were trumped up in order to silence him from critiquing other black people over protests in Ferguson, MO.
During Sunday’s “Breaking News Bible Study” program, radical anti-LGBTQ activist Scott Lively defended convicted sex offender Bill Cosby and asserted that the dozens of sexual assault allegations were ginned up to discredit him ahead of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, over the police killing of Michael Brown.
Despite the fact that nothing about this conspiracy theory makes sense, especially considering that the Ferguson protests began in August 2014 and coverage of the multiple allegations against Cosby did not gain national attention until later that year, Lively nevertheless insisted that “Bill Cosby was intentionally taken down before Ferguson” because “he was America’s bridge between the Black community and the white community.”
“He was the only guy that could stand up and tell these black teenagers to pull your pants up,” Lively said. “And he did that, and that got the respect of white people who were like, ‘Why won’t anybody say anything to these kids?’”
