Former National Review "Reporter" is So Fucking Ignorant He Doesn't Know That Joe Biden Infamously Lied and Plagiarized His Claims of a Workin' Class Coal-Minin' Background

Former National Review "journalist" Tim Alberta is so devoid of basic knowledge of political history, and so in the bag for progressive Democrats, that he praises Joe Biden for repeating his infamous claim, both false and plagiarized, that he was the first in his family to go to college:

Here, let me Wikipedia that for you, Professional Political Journalist:

Major controversy beset Biden's candidacy, beginning on September 12, 1987 with high-profile articles in The New York Times and The Des Moines Register.[22] Biden was accused of plagiarizing a speech by Neil Kinnock, leader of the British Labour Party.[23] Kinnock's speech, delivered to a Welsh Labour Party conference on May 15, 1987, and then rebroadcast during the UK 1987 general election, made reference to his background and that of his wife Glenys. It included the lines:
Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? [Pointing to his wife in the audience:] Why is Glenys the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Was it because all our predecessors were thick? Biden's speech made reference to himself and his wife Jill, and included the lines:

I started thinking as I was coming over here, why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? [Pointing to his wife in the audience:] Why is it that my wife who is sitting out there in the audience is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? Is it because I'm the first Biden in a thousand generations to get a college and a graduate degree that I was smarter than the rest?[23]

Biden went on to duplicate other parts of Kinnock's speech, such as their forebears' ability to read and write poetry, their strength in working for hours underground in a mine only to come up and play football afterward, and their being limited by lack of a "platform" upon which to stand.[23]

Biden had in fact cited Kinnock as the source for the formulation on previous occasions.[24][25] However, he made no reference to the original source at the August 23 Democratic debate at the Iowa State Fair being reported on,[26] nor in an August 26 interview for the National Education Association.[25] Moreover, while political speeches often appropriate ideas and language from each other, Biden's use came under more scrutiny because he fabricated aspects of his own family's background in order to match Kinnock's.[17][27]

Following the Kinnock attention, reports came from the San Jose Mercury News of Biden giving a February 3, 1987, speech to the California Democratic Party that reused without credit passages from a 1967 speech by Robert F. Kennedy, and of Biden giving 1985 and 1986 speeches that did the same with a passage from a 1976 speech by Hubert H. Humphrey.[28][29] In the Kennedy case – which got the greater attention, since there was film footage of both versions that television news programs could play side-by-side – Pat Caddell stated that the reuse without credit was his own fault, and that he had never informed Biden of the source of the material.[28] It was also reported that the California speech had taken a short phrase from the 1961 inaugural address of John F. Kennedy.[29]

Rather than being a deadly-effective line, this is proof of Biden's unfitness for office.
This is scary: Joe Biden has now incorporated plagiarized falsehood into his active memory of what really happened in his life.

Joe Biden did not live a hardscrabble life: his grandfather was an oil executive.

And members of his family did go to college, even back when very few people went to collge.

So this is all a lie, a lie first plagiarized in 1988 and now repeated yesterday because Joe Biden's brain is nothing but Alzheimer's, lies, and memories of groping underaged girls.

Former moron The Amish Dude observed: He's "Costanza-ized" his entire prior life. It's not a lie if his demented brain thinks it's true.

And left-liberal National Review reporter Tim Alberta praises him for it. Because So Conservative.

As I've mentioned, National Review's previous reporter, Robert Costa, went gonzo leftwing the moment he started working for the Washington Post.

Does this keep happening to the National Review because they're stupid and can't do a basic background check, or is it by design?

Could it be -- now hear me out on this -- that the "conservatism" the Establishment favors is in fact a very liberal one, one that can change its spots into actual Democrat progressivism with a moment's notice, except for their one "conservative" conviction that everything should be sacrificed for the Only True Conservative Principle that their donor-corporations should pay no taxes and not be subject to antitrust law?

Or any law, really?

Hey can we give more money to the corporate "conservative" establishment? They're so good at their jobs and so Severely Conservative. They're scoring so many Big Wins for us, they really deserve a big bonus!

These people need to finally listen to me: Read more, Tweet less. You're fucking so embarrassingly stupid, and yet you swan around pretending to be world-beater geniuses.


36 That happened back when Alberta was pooping in his diapers, not now when Biden is pooping in his. Posted by: Roy
