By definition, plagiarism represents another author’s language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions as one’s own original work.
Don’t worry, though, because even if it’s not your story, so long as you’re part of the left-wing socialist mob, no one will call you out on it.
For example, you won’t believe the childhood story Kamala Harris is now telling and where it really originated.
Back in October of 2020, at the height of the presidential election campaign, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris told Elle magazine a story about attending a Civil Rights march as a child.
The article resurfaced last week after Elle published their year-in-review list.
In the story, Harris talks about how she accompanied her parents to a civil rights march in Oakland, California, during the 1960s.
Harris remembers being wheeled through the march in a stroller and at some point, falling from the stroller, but the adults were so caught up in the “rapture of protest” that they just kept marching and didn’t notice “little Kamala” was gone.
According to the VP-elect, once her parents doubled back, they noticed she was upset. Her mother asked her, ‘Baby, what do you want? What do you need?’ Harris responded, ‘Fweedom.’
The story undoubtedly played well to the editors at the left-wing Elle magazine, who were obviously looking to promote the then Vice-Presidential candidate, but they did little to research the validity of Harris’ story before publishing it in their October issue.
However, that didn’t stop Andray Domise, a contributing editor at a Canadian news magazine, from digging a little deeper into the background of Kamala’s “tug at your heartstrings” childhood story.
Domise took to Twitter and pointed to a story found in a 1965 issue of Playboy magazine where in an interview Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. told an almost identical tale of a young girl at a march in Birmingham, Alabama.
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

It wasn’t long before the Twittersphere jumped on board with Domise and charged that Harris had “lifted” her story of “fweedom” from King.
Harris had referenced the same story in her 2010 book and in her 2019 memoir that was released just before she announced her candidacy for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
But really, should it come as a surprise that Joe Biden’s running mate has committed a blatant act of plagiarism? After all, Biden is the same guy who dropped out of the 1988 presidential race amid reports of multiple instances of plagiarism.
Seems the trait runs in the “family.”
