    I don't think it should be a big deal at all unless it is something that is gaining the other person money or major power/status from just the plagiarism (such as someone passing themself off as a "great thinker" because they use a bunch of quotes from others).

    Just using a speech of another person or lines from someone else in a speech is not something worthy of anything but embarrassment and loss of respect.

    Give us an example?
    You mean things like their constant hate speech. Their racial intolerance for white heterosexual Christian males. Their constant rhetoric about how successful white males have caused all the suffering in the world. The constant call for the purging of all non-liberal/socialist/progressives from politics, blaming them for everything bad but refusing to actually hold their own accountable.

    Those kind of things?

    Really, got any cool ones. Maybe we can make fun of them too. The ones on the board don't seem to throw out as much dreck as the liberals ones, so the liberals get made fun of more often.

    Didn't Biden have to tank a presidential primary run on account of something like this many years ago?

    I think Paul is a realasshole, and nothing could make me happier than to see him lose every race he ever runs in for the rest of his life.

    But I see nothing wrong with borrowing quotes in speeches, and I think it should be unpunished.

    Please show me liberals plagiarizing/quoting Hitler and using his views on the "intolerance for white heterosexual Christian males". Thanks.

    In this context nothing, if it was something he had written for profit sure, if it was a scholarly article sure, in a speech you (democrats) are just reaching for anything they can and it looks pathetic.

    This is not a form of adult conversation.

    Figments of your imagination. Or, if you haven't that much imagination, figments of someone else's that you like and wish were true.
