Alveda King blasts Kamala Harris for copying MLK story: ‘It’s a big stretch for her to compare herself’ to him

“It’s a big stretch for her to compare herself or to sound like him.”

During an October interview with Elle magazine, Kamala Harris shared a heartwarming story from her childhood.

The catch? It’s nearly identical to a story Martin Luther King Jr. told back in 1965. 

“By the time they noticed little Kamala was gone and doubled back, she was understandably upset,” the article reads. “‘My mother tells the story about how I’m fussing,’ Harris says, ‘and she’s like, ‘Baby what do you want? What do you need?’ And I just looked at her and I said, ‘Fweedom.’” 

The recollection is uncanny to a part of an MLK interview published by Playboy over 50 years earlier. 

“I never will forget a moment in Birmingham when a white policeman accosted a little ne*** girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking in a demonstration with her mother,” he recalled. “‘What do you want?’ the policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked him straight in the eye and answered, ‘Fee-dom.’ She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew,” he continued. 

Reacting to the allegations against the vice president-elect, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, says there is simply no comparison between the two. 

“Kamala knows that her worldview is totally different than the world view of Martin Luther King Jr., so it’s a big stretch for her to compare herself or to sound like him or use some of his same analogies,” King said on Lou Dobbs Tonight. 

“For instance, Kamala believes it is okay to abort babies up to nine months. And if you meant to abort the baby and the baby lives, then let the baby die. Martin Luther King Jr. served the public. He did not kill the public. And that would include babies in the womb,” King continued. 

“He said ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ So she is nothing like Martin Luther King Jr., but there she is playing on those emotions again.”

    I’m not surprised. Her boss is famous for plagiarism.
