After wowing the mainstream media with his acceptance speech, charges have emerged that portions of the speech were plagiarized from Jack Layton, the late founder of the Canadian New Democratic Party. The charges sound similar to those from Biden’s earlier campaigns.
Similar allegations of plagiarism along with his obvious problems with separating his own fantasies from reality were a prime reason for the failure of his 1988 campaign and resulted in other failed campaigns.
For an example of problems that the old Biden had with separating fact from his own fiction, consider this quote from his 2008 campaign:
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed.”–Joe Biden 2008
If the old Biden is really back, the next step in his recurring references to the debunked “fine people” narrative will morph into something like this:
I remember the tragic events in Charlottesville like they were yesterday; they were permanently seared into my brain.
With torches lit and veins bulging, Adolf Hitler with his army of storm troopers and hooded KKK dog-faced pony soldiers terrorized the town, while President Trump and his masses of deplorables clapped and cheered . . .
Is the old Biden really back?
If so, why would anyone vote for him?
For background, here is a compilation of Biden’s apparent plagiarism and whooper-telling from his 1988 campaign by Jimmy Dore, a comedian and Bernie supporter. Warning: Video contains a couple of R-rated expletives:
