Let's Make America a Bill Cosby Free Zone

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Bill Cosby`s comedy show on January 8 at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, is set to go forward, but not without a hitch. Protesters plan to hold a demonstration and heckle the comedian.


Megan Walker, executive director of London Abused Women`s Centre, tells CTV she is spearheading a protest to occur outside the venue at 6 p.m. on the night of the show.

According to the Wrap, Walker`s protest is not about Bill Cosby being guilty of any of the allegations made against him over the past couple of months, but more about supporting the women who have come forward to make accusations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them."


For decades it was an open secret in Hollywood that America`s Dad Bill Cosby was a serial rapist, but the general public was largely unaware of Cosby`s despicable hidden life.

But this joke by stand-up comic Hannibal Buress changed everything:

Bill Cosby has the smuggest old black man public persona. But you raped women, Bill Cosby.

This joke opened the floodgates, and suddenly it was OK for celebrities to come out of the closet and condemn Cosby`s history of raping women.

Cosby`s victims became emboldened and dozens stepped forward to accuse the disgraced comic of sexual assault.

Bill Cosby is now fair game, and the London Abused Women Centre should be joined by thousands of regular folks, when they protest Cosby`s show at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario on January, 8, 2015.

There should be no venue anywhere in the world where Bill Cosby feels comfortable enough to crack jokes while his victims are still tortured by the memories of the abuse they suffered at his hands.

Let`s make America and Canada a Bill Cosby Free Zone!
