The internet is full of talk about Melania Trump’s incredible speech last night at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland, Ohio, which some say was plagiarized.
Some of the words sound similar to a speech First Lady Michelle Obama gave to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
But as it turns out, Michelle Obama stole parts of that speech… from far-left radical organizer Saul Alinsky.
Alinsky is one of the original “community organizers” and agitators, which taught entire generations of radicals how to incite violence:
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.
Barack Obama: “Don’t tell me words don’t matter.” As then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) surpassed Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, largely on the strength of his oratory, Clinton said that Obama’s record was “just words.” Obama responded in a speech whose refrain was lifted from then-Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. The Obama campaign did not even bother to refute the claim. Instead, it circulated examples of lines that it said Clinton herself had borrowed from Obama. The left media defended Obama, saying that he had not committed plagiarism, but merely, at worst, “poor footnoting.”[…]
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.” Michelle Obama said: “And Barack stood up that day, and he spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about ‘the world as it is‘ and ‘the world as it should be.’” (Perhaps Mr. Obama who left out the attribution.)
This is a bombshell report, which – of course – the liberal media will completely ignore today while they are busy mocking Donald Trump and his wife.
