Joe Biden Faces Allegations Of Plagiarism Over DNC Speech

Joe Biden Faces Allegations Of Plagiarism Over DNC Speech

Joe Biden has been accused of plagiarising from the late Canadian politician Jack Layton in his nomination speech

In his speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, Biden’s final address included the lines, “For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. And light is more powerful than dark.”

But Canadians say they have heard words before like that before….

NY Post reports: Canadian media quickly noted that the former veep’s words were  uncannily similar to those of Jack Layton, the leader of Canada’s left-wing New Democratic Party, who issued a poignant open letter to his fellow citizens as he lay dying of cancer nine years ago Saturday, on Aug. 22, 2011.

“My friends,” Layton wrote, “Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.”

“A number of Canadians are struck by the similar parting words of Biden’s speech to the final words of Jack Layton’s farewell letter before his death,” CBC’s Washington correspondent Alexander Panetta tweeted at the time. 

Layton’s message, meanwhile, had likewise used similar language attributed to former Canadian Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier, the National Post reported.

“Let me tell you that for the solution of these problems you have a safe guide, an unfailing light if you remember that faith is better than doubt and love is better than hate,” Laurier said in 1916.

The differences between Biden’s language and Layton — and Laurier for that matter — were apparently subtle enough to escape the $4,200 anti-plagiarism software program that the Democratic nominee’s campaign reportedly installed last year.

Biden’s cribbing habit goes back decades.

In 1987, he withdrew from the Democratic Party’s presidential race in shame after he ripped off lines from UK Labor Party Leader Neil Kinnock in a debate — and even went so far as to claim elements of Kinnock’s family history as his own.

As a law school student in 1965, Biden flunked a class for repeatedly citing published works without attribution.

And as recently as last year, Biden caught heat for stealing lines from climate activist groups and using them, word for word, in his own climate change plan — drawing derision from President Trump.

“Plagiarism charge against Sleepy Joe Biden on his ridiculous Climate Change Plan is a big problem, but the Corrupt Media will save him,” Trump tweeted at the time.
