And Just To Head Off the Stupidest Holiday Ever Created...

Kwanzaa -- Racist Holiday from Hell

While public officials, schools, and the ACLU worked overtime this year to ban every vestige of Christmas from the public square, the recently invented holiday known as Kwanzaa is gaining in popularity among black Americans. These occurrences are not unrelated.
In an earlier time, blacks held a strong faith in God. But over the past 40 years, the black community has largely let God slip away. Sure the community has maintained the outer trappings of religion, but the solid morality at its core is nearly gone.

Enter a God-hating black racist named Ron Karenga. Born Ron Everett on a poultry farm in Maryland, Everett invented Kwanzaa in 1966, based on an African harvest festival (though it takes place during the Winter Solstice!), and celebrating the first Kwanzaa with his family and friends.

Calling himself “Maulana” (Swahili for “Master Teacher”), Karenga became a black nationalist at UCLA, and formed his group, the United Slaves (US) for the purpose of igniting a “cultural revolution” among American blacks. US members followed Karenga’s “Path of Blackness,” which is detailed in his Quotable Karenga: “The sevenfold path of blackness is think black, talk black, act black, create black, buy black, vote black, and live black.”

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 “Bunchy” Carter verbally attacked Karenga at the meeting, which infuriated Karenga’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.

Incidentally, on March 31, 1974, it was discovered that both Stiner brothers had escaped from the family visiting area in San Quentin State Prison. Larry Stiner turned himself into the FBI in Caracas, Venezuela, on December 13, 1994. He remains in custody at San Quentin. But George Stiner remains at large and his whereabouts remain unknown. He is currently on California’s 10 Most Wanted List.

The shooting at UCLA apparently caused Karenga to become extremely suspicious. On May 9, 1970, Karenga and two others tortured two women who Karenga believed had tried to poison him by placing “crystals” in his food and water.

The Los Angeles Times described the events: “Deborah Jones, who once was given the title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electric cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes at gunpoint. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis’ mouth and placed against Miss Davis’ face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vice. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said.”

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 Karenga’s sanity. The psychiatrist’s report stated: “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.” The psychiatrist reportedly observed that Karenga talked to his blanket and imaginary persons, and he believed he’d been attacked by dive-bombers.

Eight years later, California State University Long Beach named Karenga the head of its Black Studies Department. By this time, Karenga had “repented” of his black nationalism and had become just a harmless garden variety Marxist. This must be our esteemed university system’s idea of repentance!

Karenga’s Kwanzaa celebration consists of seven “principles.” They are Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination – code for “buy black”), Ujima (collective work and responsibility – groupthink), Ujamaa (cooperative economics – socialism), Nia (purpose) Kuumba (creativity), and Imani (faith – in man, not God).

To provide a symbol of his seven “principles,” Karenga used the menorah from Judaism with Kwanzaa’s colors (red, black, and green), and re-named it the "kinara."

Karenga also created a Kwanzaa flag that consists of black, green, and red. The Kwanzaa Information Center states the color red represents blood: “We lost our land through blood; and we cannot gain it except through blood. We must redeem our lives through the blood. Without the shedding of blood there can be no redemption of this race.” The Kwanzaa Information Center also notes that this flag “has become a symbol of devotion for African people in America to establish an independent African nation on the North American Continent.” (Emphasis added.)

When once asked why he designed Kwanzaa to take place around Christmas, Karenga explained, “People think it’s African, but it’s not. I came up with Kwanzaa because black people wouldn’t celebrate it if they knew it was American. Also, I put it around Christmas because I knew that’s when a lot of bloods would be partying.”

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 “denies and diminishes human worth, capacity, potential and achievement. In Christian and Jewish mythology, humans are born in sin, cursed with mythical ancestors who’ve sinned and brought the wrath of an angry God on every generation’s head.” He clearly opposed belief in God and other “spooks who threaten us if we don’t worship them and demand we turn over our destiny and daily lives.”

Through ignorance or racism, growing numbers of black Christians are either celebrating Kwanzaa or incorporating it into their Christmas celebrations. Now many preachers are incorporating Kwanzaa into their messages. This is a horrible mistake.

First of all, as we’ve seen, the whole holiday is made up! You won’t find its roots in Africa or anywhere else. Second, Kwanzaa’s “principles” 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 Kwanzaa’s seven principles “ring true not only for African-Americans, but also for all Americans…bring[ing] new purpose to our daily lives.” 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 – 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.

This is a future we cannot allow.

Festivus has more character than this travesty of a "holy" day...

Thank you for posting this! I remember back when it was starting to be promulgated, there were even commercials about it! I knew then it was made up, a lot of black people actually resented it. Now, it's, as stated, nearly mainstream. Antichrist, another Christ, or just plain in your face, I hate you because you're white, or brown, or yellow, or red, or anything but black! How hateful is that?

Sometimes, those old Bible sayings mean a lot, don't they?

One comes to mind:

"Swallow a camel, strain at a gnat."

Now YouBoob has a recruitment video up from a Boston projects gang (any wonder violent crimes are sky high in Boston? Liberalism at work, folks):

Dinosaurs Died Off to Make Way for This?

This from the same place that won't allow videos that portray Islam in a n "insulting" light.

Dear God in heaven! I'm not offended by bad language, but THAT video was TOTALLY OFFENSIVE TO ME! What absolutely degenerate people. When I see that crap, I have to work twice as hard to NOT be racist. But then, it's culture, not skin color, as Bill Whittle says--and I have always believed. Hey UpClown, you need a new tribe!

What do you suppose the reaction would be if whites came up with a ''holiday'' called "Saxonia''? Think the ACLU would tolerate that? And as to the homeies in the video,on a day when ground was broken for a monument to Martin Luther King,how do you suppose he'd feel about seeing young black men denigrating themselves this way? I've always felt that rap and hip-hop music was the modern equilvent of blacks who would caper about and dance for the amusement of white folks while pennies were thrown at their feet.Contrast rap ''music'',with its violent,racist,sexist and mysoginist lyrics with the Motown sound of the Sixties. Those black men and women,at a time in America when the black community was literaly fighting not only for equality and self-respect,but also for its very life,never resorted or would NEVER think to refer to themselves as ''niggas'',bitches and ''ho's''. How sad. And as a personal aside,from the stand point of a former musician,I can tell you the music of Motown,of Soul and R/B was and still is beautiful written and styled music. Rap is nothing more then a rude kind of shouted poetry,with a metronome beat.J'Mac

I heartily agree, J'Mac.

Diana Ross and the other singers were astonished when they were shown "how" to sing by the bigwigs at Motown. Ross is supposed to have said, "I thought we were trying to get away from the finger snapping and minstrel show theatrics."

She and the other Supremes felt it would be demeaning to do things like that. The Motown Man prevailed, though, and some of the finest music and acts came out of Motown in the day.

How times have changed, eh?

You're right about Motown, that was music! It wasn't screeching, screaming, yelling, obsenities just to shock, and death cultish in it's gangsta acts! No class!
Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, all the others were class! They dressed, spoke and acted with class! They are classy, they have style and they were intelligent men and women!
