Perverts Roman Polanski and Bill Cosby tangled in political double standard

One man admits he’s a filthy pedophile who plied a minor with champagne and part of a Quaalude, then had sex with her inside Jack Nicholson’s house.

Another man has consistently claimed that he only had sex with females who wanted it.

Guess which one is entitled to the best tables in swanky Paris bistros? If you guessed the child molester, you win a gold star.

Filmmaker Roman Polanski, 82, a French-born Pole, has been a fugitive from the American justice system ever since he pleaded guilty in a Los Angeles court to unlawful sexual intercourse with a child in 1977 — a 13-year-old girl. For nearly four decades, he’s cooled his dirty heels mainly in France, winning Oscars and badass-ery points from his amoral movie-making brethren in Hollywood and around the world.

Meanwhile, philandering comic genius Bill Cosby, 78, has never been charged with, much less convicted of, a sex crime, or any crime. Yet an avalanche of women has come forward to accuse him of drugging them and committing acts of completed or attempted sexual assault — the accuser count passed 50 this past summer, and includes a woman who claims Cosby took sexual liberties with her when she was 15 years old.

Some of the alleged attacks date back as far as the 1960s.

Some women admitted that they approached Cosby hoping to further their careers.

Polanski, the director and a producer of the 2002 movie “The Pianist,’’ is celebrated as a cinematic superstud by his toxic admirers.

Cosby has been stripped of product endorsements, standup comedy gigs, TV shows, and virtually his every friend and fan, not including his loyal wife/doormat of 51 years, Camille, 71.

The reason for this double standard seems plain to me. Cosby was thrown into the social and professional wilderness after he violated a commandment rigidly enforced by numbskull leftists in the entertainment industrial complex: Thou shalt not be conservative.

Cosby, a Democrat, has expressed views considered heretical by famous folks, particularly those of color. He’s preached that African-American males need to man up and stop blaming others for their failures, care for their children and clean up gibberish-laden speech.

“Looking at the incarcerated, these are not political criminals,’’ Cosby said in the so-called “Pound Cake’’ speech he delivered at a 2004 NAACP awards ceremony in Washington, DC.

“These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola,’’ he said. “People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! And then we all run out and are outraged: ‘The cops shouldn’t have shot him.’ What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?’’

Rather than receiving applause for his moral values, Cosby was roundly condemned by liberals as an elitist hypocrite who blamed victims of perceived racism for their diminished stations in life.

Months after the speech, Cosby’s first accuser pointed her finger at him.

Polanski pleaded guilty to a relatively minor sex crime and served 42 days in jail, but fled America before he was formally sentenced. Then, in 2009, he was locked up in Switzerland — mainly under house arrest in his ritzy Gstaad chalet — as Swiss authorities decided whether to extradite him to the United States. This led to one of the darkest hours in the realm of make-believe.

Filmmakers from Martin Scorsese to Pedro Almodovar and Woody Allen — himself accused by his adult adopted daughter of molesting her as a child — 138 in all, signed a petition demanding Polanski’s immediate release on human-rights grounds. In the end, Polanski was not shipped back to America.

Is Bill Cosby a rapist? Or is he guilty of being politically incorrect?

As I’ve suggested, he’s certainly run afoul of the new feminist-written definition of what constitutes sexual assault.

Today, a person may self-identify as a victim if he or she willingly takes drugs or drinks alcohol to get in the mood for sex.

By keeping his mouth shut on matters of morality and politics, convicted pervert Roman Polanski has won the adulation of fans and peers.

Being conservative has cost Cosby dearly.
