Bernie Sanders supporter posts 1987 news segment of Joe Biden’s non-stop lying

Anti-cop, social justice activist Shaun King is stumping for Bernie Sanders in California and is going after Joe Biden on social media. Still smarting from Sanders’ loss to Hillary Clinton in 2016, King is resurrecting Biden’s scandals from his 1988 campaign for president. Two days ago, King posted a 1987 video on his Instagram account with the message, “Today I'm going teach us all a painful history lesson on Joe Biden."

The old footage has veteran broadcasters Connie Chung, Ted Koppel, Sam Donaldson and others seemingly appalled at then-Senator Joe Biden's litany of lies and plagiarism.  The decades-old segment depicts the 2020 presidential candidate as a serial plagiarizer and pathological liar. One America News(OAN) reported on the video yesterday, along with several online news sites.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

In 1987, when Joe Biden was running for President for the very first time, his campaign got swallowed up in a swarm of lies that Joe Biden told about himself all over the country. First, Biden was caught plagiarizing a famous speech from British Labour Party Leader Neil Kinnock - including parts of the speech that came straight from Kinnock’s personal life that simply were not true for Joe Biden. Then, he plagiarized yet another speech from the late Robert Kennedy and another from JFK and another from Hubert Humphrey. You have to understand - this was pre-Internet, pre-social media, and something in Joe Biden’s mind made him think he could get away with it. He didn’t. And it ultimately tanked his campaign. Soon, it was discovered that Biden had not just plagiarized those four speeches, but had lied about academic awards, lied about scholarships, lied about his ranking at Syracuse Law School, where he had nearly been kicked out for plagiarizing five entire pages of an essay, and that he also frequently lied about something that he had made a central part not just of his 1988 presidential campaign bid, but of his entire public persona. Temporarily, Joe Biden paid a price for most of those lies, but was never fully held to account for the worst of them all. On the backs of people who actually paid an enormous price for being activists and organizers in the Civil Rights Movement, Joe Biden created a completely false narrative of his work and contributions to the movement that persists to this very day. Instead of plagiarized speeches, he was plagiarizing details about his actual life. He not only told these lies in previous generations, they have now fully returned to his current stump speeches in churches and venues around the country as if he never acknowledged and apologized for them in the past. It’s shameful. Today I am going to break it ALL down for you.

In addition to the discovery of his law school plagiarism which derailed his short-lived run for president in 1988, Biden copied nearly word for word a speech from British Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock (which he later admitted to). Biden went on to repeat the words of Robert Kennedy, JFK, and Hubert Humphrey in various speeches. He lied about scholarships he received, how many degrees he obtained, and his academic standing upon graduation from law school. He’s even suggested he’s descended from generations of coal miners in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Biden’s disastrous, yet politically expedient resume, (he’s easily controlled by the real power brokers), shows he has the right stuff when it comes to being the perfect Democratic candidate. He’s been in D.C. for nearly half a century, he's clueless, self-serving, disoriented, can't keep his hands to himself, corrupt, and has lied his way to top positions in the government.

These days Team Bernie would like to make sure everyone knows.
