An embarrassing, yet entirely telling ‘mistake’ was made at the Republican National Convention Monday night. If ever one needs fodder to fuel the flames of the notion of political theater — they needn’t look any further than potential first lady Melania Trump delivering a nearly identical speech to Michelle Obama.
However, as the Free Thought Project pointed out, politicians spewing identical rhetoric is not an isolated incident. It is so common, in fact, that the President, Vice President, Presidential candidates, senators, and congresspersons alike have all been caught plagiarizing content.
The brilliant folks at the Corbett Report decided to make a compilation video exposing this nonsense. The results are nothing short of jaw-dropping.
Politicians are puppets, and your only questions should be: “Who is writing their speeches? And who is pulling their strings?” This is a public service announcement from The Corbett Report.
This plagiarism, or rather scripting, should come as no surprise to Americans and the rest of the world. Instead, it should simply back up the notion that these people are merely puppets.
When speaking publicly, presidents, first ladies, and the majority of politicians, do little more than serve as passive reverberators for their controlling interests.
The teleprompter ushered in a new era of stringless puppetry and with it came speeches so generic and full of fluff that the incompetent elite can’t fill the screen fast enough without ripping off previous content.
The public hardly notices that the same hot air is blown at them over and over. The irony is that the left takes from the right and vice versa, yet the vacuous language, designed to sound like something of substance, has the intended effect on both sides — distract, divide, and pacify.
