Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., seems to have plagiarized a bizarre childhood story from civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr.
In a recent interview with Elle magazine, the would-be vice president recalled a time in which she attended a civil rights march as a young child.
“At some point, she fell from the stroller (few safety regulations existed for children’s equipment back then), and the adults, caught up in the rapture of protest, just kept on marching. By the time they noticed little Kamala was gone and doubled back, she was understandably upset. ‘My mother tells the story about how I’m fussing,’ Harris says, ‘and she’s like, “Baby, what do you want? What do you need?” And I just looked at her and I said, “Fweedom.”’” Elle reported.
Critics immediately noticed how similar it was to a story told by King Jr. in 1965:
“I never will forget a moment in Birmingham when a white policeman accosted a little Negro girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking in a demonstration with her mother,” King Jr. told Playboy magazine at the time. “‘What do you want?’ the policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked him straight in the eye and answered, ‘Fee-dom.’ She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew. It was beautiful! Many times when I have been in sorely trying situations, the memory of that little one has come into my mind, and has buoyed me.”
Others pointed out that plagiarism seems to be a common problem on the Biden team.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are two plagiarizing frauds.
Biden plagiarized during law school and from RFK, Hubert Humphrey, JFK, and he stole the family history of a British politician.
Now Kamala Harris plagiarized from MLK. https://t.co/h5QOs0t6Mx
