More and more we see the blatant hypocrisy of the left.
Most of this past week the media was devoted to slandering First Lady to be Melania Trump. They overlooked her brave, heart-felt speech, to pick out a few lines that seemed lifted from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech.
While we know that Trump’s speech writer did lift a few lines accidentally, the press overlooked the obvious. Melania is an immigrant, who came to America, worked hard to build her own career, and is now poised to become First Lady. She is the embodiment of the American dream. Yet the left has long ago ceased caring about America. They simply want to ride their destructive agenda straight into hell.
So they insult and slander a woman who represents many of us, because of a few repeated words.
But wait a minute… that’s exactly what Michelle, Barack, and Hillary did. Over and over again!
From Allen B West:
Trump’s wife joins Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Joe Biden as accused plagiarists. Even Michelle Obama was accused of plagiarizing part of her own 2008 DNC speech.
Michelle Obama: “…the world as it should be.” In 2008, the aspiring First Lady was accused by bloggers of lifting lines for her DNC speech from Saul Alinsky. Alinsky wrote, in Rules for Radicals (emphasis added): “The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.”
Saul Alinsky might just be the very worst person to quote from. Barack also stole lines from Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. Hillary stole lines from–get this–Sen. Bernie Sanders. Joe Biden stole lines from British Labour Party leader Neal Kinnock.
The fact is speeches aren’t very original things. Rhetoric is only effective because it repeats ideas and mantras that are familiar to the listeners. Melania’s slight was only in taking from the wrong person. The main message of her speech was far more patriotic, far more inspiring, than anything that’s come out of Michelle Obama’s mouth.
