Joe Biden plagiarized himself for his DNC speech By M. Dowling
At a speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday Joe Biden plagiarized himself. He copied his own 2008 speech. Not only that, but he is also accused of using plagiarized lines from a speech by the late Canadian politician Jack Layton.
Joe 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.”Social media was quick to point out that the words were eerily similar to ones found in a letter Layton wrote before he died in 2011.
“My friends, love is better than anger,” said Layton in his letter. “Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.”
