Bill Cosby has used a number of different techniques to mislead people concerning his treatment of women, but gaslighting doesn’t seem to be one of them. I watched the movie this week, so I am reminded that gaslighting is the specific attempt to make someone question his or her sanity.

That people are nuts if they do not totally see that his release completely erases wrongdoing. I wonder if all those celebrating his release would send their daughters or wives to have a nice secluded dinner with him.

Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

is that these people usually believe their own lies.
In his twisted mind, he didn’t drug those women. He “gave them a little something so they could relax” in the greatness of his company, don’cha’know?
He is sick and will remain so until death because he is in denial. Attempts to defend his actions amount to gaslighting because they are intended to make the recipient as sick and twisted as Cosby has demonstrated himself to be.
The word ‘gaslighting’ is not always used in the context of an attempt to drive a particular person insane. It may have originated that way but it has evolved and can be used to describe any surreptitious attempt at confusion or obfuscation from the truth.
The media is gaslighting us into believing that Biden is a liberal.

Let him fade away into obscurity. He will never change. He will never spend more time in prison. The best we can do is erase his name from history.
