Oops – Looks Like Kamala Harris ‘Fweedom’ Story Plagiarized From Martin Luther King, Jr. 1965 Interview

Oops – Looks Like Kamala Harris ‘Fweedom’ Story Plagiarized From Martin Luther King, Jr. 1965 Interview

“My mother tells the story about how I’m fussing, and she’s like, ‘Baby, what do you want? What do you need?’ And I just looked at her and I said, ‘Fweedom,’” Harris told Elle magazine in October.

Back in October, Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris was interviewed by Elle fashion magazine for a predictably glowing puff piece designed to make the Senator sound like the greatest potential national leader in American history.

So great, in fact, that she was even talking about American “fweedom” while still being wheeled around in her stroller in the late 1960s if the story she told the magazine is to be believed:

Senator Kamala Harris started her life’s work young. She laughs from her gut, the way you would with family, as she remembers being wheeled through an Oakland, California, civil rights march in a stroller with no straps with her parents and her uncle. 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.’”

It’s a cute story on its face, and for the less discerning reader it might give off the impression that Harris was wise beyond her years in demanding “fweedom” at such a young age when most tykes were understandably more interested in ice cream, play toys, and naps than what was going on in the world around them.

The interview didn’t generate much buzz at the time. But on Monday, nearly three months to the day after the interview was published, it resurfaced on Twitter – but this time with a rather interesting side-by-side comparison. Harris, it would seem, may have lifted parts of her cutesy “fweedom” story from an interview the late civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr. gave to Playboy magazine in January 1965:

The lengthy 1965 interview was done by Alex Haley shortly after King had won and accepted the Nobel Peace prize:

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. “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.

Speculation about the stories spawned memes and flashbacks to Joe Biden’s own issues with plagiarism and spinning tall tales:

Considering Biden’s well-documented history of plagiarism and just generally making stuff up that didn’t happen, as well as Harris’ penchant for scripted performances, it would appear that both he and his running mate have far more in common than first thought – even though I suspect there’s a strong possibility that Harris, unlike Biden, really does only read Playboy magazine for the articles.

Even a two bit street walker is above that crap.

” 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.”

Hard to believe. More likely her parents dumped her out of the stroller and tried to ditch her in the crowd.

She should at least strive to be a good liar, or hire people who are.

Let’s play devil’s advocate and give Kamala the benefit of the doubt that 1) Her mom plagiarized the MLK story (and as an Indian-American immigrant with a PhD used the word “fussin”), 2) that she actually celebrated Kwanzaa as a child (her parents were Bay Area academics, so it’s not completely unreasonable), and 3) whatever other self-aggrandizing stories she tells maybe have a reasonable explanation. A lot to swallow, but hear me out.

Had she talked about ANY of these things prior to being the Vice Presidential nominee? A cursory search of stories in the news and twitters indicates no. Seriously, search Twitter for news of her celebrating Kwanzaa, making reference to being in a civil rights march, etc. Jill Biden was at least being called “Doctor” in 2009 because Obama wanted to pretend she was a medical doctor to sell the ACA. Kamala might as well show us the bottle of hot sauce she carries in her purse.

The little girl Kamala then lit up a blunt as she turned her Tupac tunes back on.

Ah Kamala “Fwee to be me”. One thing that Kamala has never put in her mouth is the truth. It’s going to be a long four years under this twit.

Her boss plagiarized

She will become the composite character just as the one in “Dreams from My Father.”

A phony and a liar.

The left has spent the last 5 years spreading fear and lies about Trump, and even longer spreading fear and lies about the Right. Last night I was reading people on FB (that I thought had some sense) talking about “Trump Cultists” planning to create terror and dissent throughout the Biden administration – there will be acts of violence, talk about overthrowing the government, etc. etc. etc. Apparently, they don’t remember the last 4 years of leftist dissension and violence, because that was all Trump’s fault.

.
“Oops” definitely does NOT apply here!

And we should be surprised, why?

I just hear her cackling in that fingernails on a blackboard laugh of hers right after she said, “FWEEEEDOM!”

Come on man! It’s such a good story. Plus, she is half of the major plagerizer regime.

Harris is a career politician. The only way a person gets to be a career politician is to be a consummate liar as well as in the pocket of the Establishment. People seem to believe that politicians are honest, truthful and have the best interests of their constituents at heart. In the face of the overwhelming mountain of evidence to the contrary, this mystifies me.

Facts and truth are “ideas”. The narrative is everything.

After 4+ years of the Left comp!aiming about Trump putting America first , the Dems put themselves first by all means possible. As Harris says…” I will be obeyed”…you will applaud her stories and recount them with admiration..or else.

We will officially become a banana republic when they take office.

In more important news:

Dominion voting machines are apparently off-line in several counties in GA. Most of the reports, confirmed by local media and the state, show this taking pace in heavily GOP counties. Ballots are being collected in “boxes” for later scans by election officials.

And so it begins.

    But the local gadflies will be here to assure us that nothing is wrong as the Dems steal two more seats.

Sometimes it’s a babe. Sometimes it’s a fetus. Creative memories are a common fallacy of social progress, social justice, and other quasi-religious/ethical (i.e. relativistic) enterprises.

Hillary can’t believe it

“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.”

OK, since she was born on 10/20/64, and Kwanzaa was first celebrated at the end of December, 1966, she could have been a child in a stroller.

We all know how wound up parents can be so it makes absolute sense that they would not notice their child falling out of a stroller, onto the street, and into a crowd……

Makes pewfict sense to mee………….

I’m of the opinion that anyone who says the word “Fweedom” has made themselves fair game to be be punched in the face repeatedly. Especially in the case of that utter fake Harris.

These politicians don’t ever learn that nothing goes away forever on the internet.

That would make her a “Fwedo”, kinda like a Fredo but with gender appropriate biological features.

The old wishbone learned well from the old cadaver.

Can’t help but wonder how many times she fwucked Willie Jones!
