Kwanzaa is almost over – don’t miss out on your last chance to hate whitey in 2004!
With the end of the year already upon us, so comes the end of the miraculous holiday of Kwanzaa. You know the one – where we celebrate the centuries-old tradition of — oh wait, I forget – Kwanzaa wasn’t invented until that brutally insane racist Ron Karenga made it up in a chemically-induced haze at UCLA in 1966.
I had been pondering a massive Kwanzaa post, but just this week the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson penned a column – Kwanzaa, the Racist Holiday from Hell – that did all the work for me. So why re-invent the wheel?
When was Kwanzaa invented and by whom? Oh, I already covered that, but here’s more on its beloved founder Ron Karenga:
Calling himself Ã¢â‚¬Å“MaulanaÃ¢â‚¬? (Swahili for Ã¢â‚¬Å“Master TeacherÃ¢â‚¬?), Karenga became a black nationalist at UCLA, and formed his group, the United Slaves (US) for the purpose of igniting a Ã¢â‚¬Å“cultural revolutionÃ¢â‚¬? among American blacks. US members followed KarengaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Path of Blackness,Ã¢â‚¬? which is detailed in his Quotable Karenga: Ã¢â‚¬Å“The sevenfold path of blackness is think black, talk black, act black, create black, buy black, vote black, and live black.Ã¢â‚¬?
The United Slaves had violent confrontations with the Black Panthers on campus, and were actually considered more radical than the Panthers.
The biggest dispute between the United Slaves and the Panthers was for the leadership of the new African Studies Department at UCLA, with each group backing a different candidate. Panthers John Jerome Huggins and Alprentice Ã¢â‚¬Å“BunchyÃ¢â‚¬? Carter verbally attacked Karenga at the meeting, which infuriated KarengaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s followers. After the meeting ended, two United Slaves members, George and Larry Stiner, reportedly confronted Huggins and Carter in a hallway, shooting and killing them.
So Karenga was too far to the left for even the Black Panthers, resulting in a variety of gangland-style confrontations with the group.
Paul Mulshine shed some light on Karenga in another FrontPageMag article back in 2002. Karenga even got some early love from the charlatan king, Al Sharpton.
Great minds think alike. The inventor of the holiday [Karenga] was one of the few black “leaders” in America even worse than Sharpton. But there was no mention in the Times article of this man or of the fact that at that very moment he was sitting in a California prison. And there was no mention of the curious fact that this purported benefactor of the black people had founded an organization that in its short history tortured and murdered blacks in ways of which the Ku Klux Klan could only fantasize.
Karenga didn’t stop there. At some point during his crime spree, he became paranoid, and went medieval on some of his hos.
Karenga was sentenced to one-to-ten years in prison on counts of felonious assault and false imprisonment. At his trial, the question arose as to KarengaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sanity. The psychiatristÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s report stated: Ã¢â‚¬Å“This man now represents a picture which can be considered both paranoid and schizophrenic with hallucinations and illusions, inappropriate affect, disorganization, and impaired contact with the environment.Ã¢â‚¬? The psychiatrist reportedly observed that Karenga talked to his blanket and imaginary persons, and he believed heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d been attacked by dive-bombers.
Now there’s a hero to follow. Back to Kwanzaa – as the ACLU and its politically-correct demons across the country try to tear down any cross, christmas tree or nativity from the national town square – increasing numbers of folks are celebrating this hoax of a holiday. How does one celebrate Kwanzaa anyway?
Karenga was so lazy that he couldn’t even come up with any props for his holiday, so he stole the menorah from those filthy Jews that he so despised.
He could have at least put some effort into it. Even Karenga admits that the whole thing was basically a bunch of crap from the beginning.
Karenga has explained that his creation of Kwanzaa was motivated in part by hostility toward both Christianity and Judaism. Writing in his 1980 book Kawaida Theory, he claimed that Western religion Ã¢â‚¬Å“denies and diminishes human worth, capacity, potential and achievement. In Christian and Jewish mythology, humans are born in sin, cursed with mythical ancestors whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve sinned and brought the wrath of an angry God on every generationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s head.Ã¢â‚¬? He clearly opposed belief in God and other Ã¢â‚¬Å“spooks who threaten us if we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t worship them and demand we turn over our destiny and daily lives.Ã¢â‚¬?
So it’s a holiday built around 1) bloods partying and 2) hatred for Christianity, Judaism and whitey. Sounds like something that deserves a stamp to me.
Peterson justifiably laments the direction that increased Kwanzaa celebration is taking black Americans.
First of all, as weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen, the whole holiday is made up! You wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find its roots in Africa or anywhere else. Second, KwanzaaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“principlesÃ¢â‚¬? are straight from Hell. Third, and most importantly, Christians who celebrate or incorporate Kwanzaa are moving their attention away from Christmas, the birth of our Savior, and the simple message of salvation: love for God through his Son. To add or subtract from that message is evil.
In recent years Kwanzaa has become increasingly popular and mainstream. President Bill Clinton commemorated Kwanzaa, stating that KwanzaaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s seven principles Ã¢â‚¬Å“ring true not only for African-Americans, but also for all AmericansÃ¢â‚¬Â¦bring[ing] new purpose to our daily lives.Ã¢â‚¬? In 2002, President Bush, though a devout Christian, also commemorated Kwanzaa. The U.S. Postal Service issued a Kwanzaa stamp in 1997; the Smithsonian Institution sponsors an annual celebration; and greeting card companies churn out Kwanzaa cards for profit.
It is now clear that Kwanzaa is a phony, wicked holiday created by an ex-con who hates God, Christians, Jews, and blacks Ã¢â‚¬â€œ yes blacks. Why else would he try to pull them away from Christianity and indoctrinate them in racialism and socialism? Blacks, particularly black Christians, need to stand up for Christmas and reject Kwanzaa. If they refuse, they will be helping to stamp out the true meaning of Christmas, and allowing evil to have its way in America.
