Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock shares an insight into why Vice President-elect Kamala Harris “remained silent” during coronavirus relief talks.
Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris apparently appropriated an anecdote first reported by civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. was told. when interviewed by Elle Magazine for an article published in October at the height of the 2020 presidential campaign.
Harris has repeatedly boasted of her parents’ involvement in the civil rights movement of the 1960s. In the Elle interview, she recalled accompanying her on marches in a stroller as a toddler.
« Senator Kamala Harris started her life’s work young, » wrote writer Ashley C. . Ford took the piece off. « She’s laughing out loud, just as you would with the family when she remembers riding with her parents and uncle in a no-strap stroller on a civil rights march in Oakland, California. At some point she fell off the stroller . . . and the adults trapped by the rapture of protest just marched on. When they saw that the little Kamala had disappeared and was doubling back, she was understandably upset. «
« My mom tells the story of how much I make a fuss, » Harris told the magazine. « And she says, » Baby what do you want? What do you need? « And I just looked at her and said, » Fweedom. ’ »
After the interview reappeared on Monday, Twitter users @EngelsFreddie and Andray Domise, editor of Maclean’s Canadian publication, found that Harris’ story resembled that of King in a 1965 interview published in Playboy.
« I will never forget a moment in Birmingham when a white cop approached a little negro girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking with her mother in a demonstration, » King said at the time. « ‘What do you want?’ The policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked him straight in the eye and replied, “Fee-dom. She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew it. It was wonderful! Many times when I have found myself in difficult situations, the memory of this little one has crossed my mind and given me a boost. «
Domise accused the vice-president-elect of « lifting » her story from King, a feeling others agreed with.
« Read this too-perfect Kamala Harris story, » tweeted former New York Times editor Bari Weiss. « Then click on this 1965 Alex Haley interview with MLK and search for the word ‘Fee-Dom' »
« Plagiarizing an MLK interview seems like the kind of thing you’re going to get into. Why are people doing this to themselves? « Asked Seth Mandel, editor-in-chief of the Washington Examiner.
« Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are two plagiarizing scams. Biden plagiarized while in law school and from RFK, Hubert Humphrey, JFK, and he stole the family history of a British politician [Neil Kinnock], « wrote Steve Guest, GOP’s Director of Rapid Response. « Now, Kamala was plagiarizing Harris from MLK. «
« We probably know why Biden chose his run mate. He saw much of his own plagiarism in her, « joked conservative commentator Stephen Miller.
The subject of plagiarism was not exactly alien to the democratic ticket. Biden himself was plagued by allegations of plagiarism in his first presidential campaign in 1987. The controversy ultimately derails his campaign.
Despite the attacks Biden received during the elections on the matter, he was never pressured by the mass media over the controversy.
