MLK’s niece lights up Kamala over plagiarized story told by her iconic uncle
The Washington Post allegedly kept track of more than 20,000 “lies” President Donald Trump has told while in office.
We can only hope the WaPo will be as diligent in chronicling all the falsehoods of the incoming Biden administration – because Team Biden is off to a fast start and they haven’t even gotten in office yet.
The latest emerged earlier this week when it appeared Vice President-elect Kamala Harris plagiarized an anecdote told by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 55 years ago.
MLK”s niece was not pleased. Alveda King, an evangelist and a Trump supporter, said it was a “big stretch” for Harris to put herself in the same realm as her iconic uncle.
To recap, the controversy blew up on Harris when some Twitter users – who, it should be mentioned, aren’t Trump fans – took note of a story she told Elle magazine about accompanying her parents in civil rights.
After recounting that Harris’s parent somehow missed her when she fell out of her stroller on one march, Harris shared, “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.’”
On Twitter, Freddie Engels, whose profile describes him as “Islamo-leftist Freddie Engelish,” and Andray Domise, an editor at the Canadian magazine Maclean’s, pointed out how that story mirrored one King told Playboy magazine in 1965. In the magazine, Dr. King recalled a young Black child’s encounter with a White police officer during a march in Birmingham. According to King, the cop asked the kid, “What do you want?” – to which the youngster replied, “Fee-dom.” “She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew,” King said. “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.”

On Tuesday, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs asked Alveda King about Harris’s tale.
“Kamala knows that her world view is totally different than the world view of Martin Luther King Jr.,” she said, “so it’s a big stretch for her to compare herself or to sound like him or to use some of his analogies.”
King continued, “For instance, Kamala believes that it’s okay to abort babies up to 9 months. And if you meant to abort the baby and the baby lives, then let the baby die. Martin Luther King Jr. served the public. He did not kill the public, and that would include babies in the womb.”
“He said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,'” she added. “So she’s nothing like Martin Luther King Jr. but she still — there she is, playing on those emotions again.”
WaPo take note.
