Kamala Harris is once again embroiled in a huge controversy. This time Joe Biden’s running mate is being accused of lying and plagiarizing Martin Luther King, Jr.’s own testimony about a little girl attending a freedom march in the 1960s. You don’t want to miss this.

Kamla Harris is so desperate to be seen as a Civil Rights icon. Her own handlers must think conservatives are too stupid to research the stories she is peddling.
“The story of Harris, ostensibly plucked from her childhood memories, opens a glowing interview profile that was Elle magazine’s November 2020 cover story,” The Federalist reports. “The anecdote, however, reeks of convenient dishonesty and prompts a laugh, for this published work that reads as pure parody takes itself so seriously.”
While the following excerpt sounds like satire, it comes from a very real article:
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.’’
That’s so rich and sounds utterly made up coming from Kamala Harris. This anecdote might have come from Martin Luther King, Jr.
“It now appears Harris’s go-to childhood story, serendipitous in light of her eventual rise to second-in-command of the freest country on earth, might have been plagiarized from the hero of the civil rights movement,” The Federalist reports.
Playboy published a too-similar story relayed by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in a 1965 interview:
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.
So it turns out Kamala Harris lifted her “Fweedom” story from a 1965 Playboy interview with Martin Luther King, by Alex Haley. Much thanks to @EngelsFreddie for spotting the similarityhttps://t.co/zDONW4Ueqs pic.twitter.com/yQuWZHYEMz

Whether the anecdote is completely made up, seriously exaggerated, or stolen from MLK, this unfortunate snag illustrates Harris is the perfect right-hand woman to Joe Biden, who has a track record of inventing fake tales and plagiarizing.
In fact, Biden’s first presidential run fell apart after someone in the rival campaign of then-Gov. Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts went to the media with a recording comparing Biden’s stump speech with a speech from the leader of the British Labour Party at the time, Neil Kinnock. Biden had taken lines straight from Kinnock without granting any credit.
Biden’s attempts to run damage control fell flat when journalists dug up the fact that he had previously failed a law school class for plagiarizing from a law review article.
“Newsweek subsequently reported that Biden lied about his law school record on a New Hampshire campaign stop, a video of which was recorded by C-SPAN and resurfaced during the 2020 presidential race. The exposure of that blatant falsehood struck the final blow to Biden’s 1988 campaign,” The Federalist adds.

As of this writing, the joint House session is debating alleged election fraud and irregularities. God help us if this dastardly duo of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gets access to the Oval Office.
Estimates of half a million to a million patriots stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday. Whatever the outcome, America will never be the same. The “silent majority” has been awakened, and business as usual won’t be happening in Washington D.C. anymore.
