Joe Biden has a plagiarizing problem. In 1988 he was forced to admit he was guilty of plagiarism and overstating his academic achievements. Nothing has changed. He has been caught once again lying about getting good grades and receiving multiple degrees. He had poor grades and got just one degree.
His acceptance speech saw him plagiarize himself and a Canadian politician in his acceptance speech. Yes, you can plagiarize yourself. You have to acknowledge that you had previous said or wrote the duplicated portion of your speech. So, Biden must have forgotten he had already given that same speech. I guess you can teach a dog mold tricks. Biden is well known for his plagiarism.
Even his theme “Build Back Better” was plagiarized from a United Nations program.
Several Canadians pointed out that Joe Biden plagiarized part of Jack Layton’s farewell letter before his death. Jack Layton was a well known politician in Canada.
In Biden’s speech, he said:
“For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. Light is more powerful than dark. This is our moment. This is our mission.”
Layton’s quote read:
“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.”
Do those two lines resemble each other? You betcha. Biden has found that other people come up with better words than he can so he always goes with the other guys. Biden acknowledged plagiarizing a law review journal for a paper during law school and he begged the school not to expel him. That ended his 1988 run for president because he was forced to drop out because of the scandal.
During his failed 1988 run, Biden lifted portions of a speech by United Kingdom Labour MP and Margaret Thatcher challenger Neil Kinnock.
During an event at the Iowa State Fair, Biden mimicked entire portions of Kinnock’s speech from earlier in the year. At one moment, Biden repeated the line that he was the first ‘in a thousand generations’ to graduate from college, gesturing to his wife in the exact same way Kinnock did, while also saying the same line about her education and lineage.
