Ann Coulter’s latest column about Kwanzaa being a “made-up” holiday, thanks to the FBI, will certainly rile those people who observe it each year. For the record, I don’t celebrate Kwanzaa but I do celebrate Christmas. I don’t go by the term African America, but simply, AMERICAN. So, while I don’t disagree with her on the fundamental need for the holiday, I do disagree with her for insulting those people who do celebrate the holiday. Here’s an excerpt from her column:
Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell
Whitey has to pay;
Burning, shooting, oh what fun
On this made-up holiday!
A few years ago, I suspended my annual Kwanzaa column because my triumph over this fake holiday seemed complete. The only people still celebrating Kwanzaa were presidential-statement writers and white female public school teachers.
But it seems to be creeping back. A few weeks ago, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., complained about having to stick around Washington for fiscal cliff negotiations by accusing Republicans of not caring about “families” coming together to bond during Kwanzaa. The private schools have picked up this PC nonsense from the public schools. (Soon, no one will know anything.)
It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga — aka Dr. Maulana Karenga — founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. He was also a dupe of the FBI.
Kwanzaa was the result of a ’60s psychosis grafted onto the black community. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural nonsense that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karenga’s United Slaves — the violence, the Marxism, the insanity.
Most absurdly, for leftists anyway, they have forgotten the FBI’s tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa. Source
Depending on where you stand on religion, the argument could be made that Christmas was made up by the Roman Catholics, since Jews and Muslims don’t see Christ as the son of God, but as a prophet. I guess this won’t sit well with Rev. Jesse Jackson, for one. Of all the things to write about, I didn’t think Kwanzaa was high up on her list, but this is Ann Coulter we are dealing with…..
