Skip to comments.Kwanzaa: The Holiday Brought To You By the FBI
Posted on 12/25/2013 5:43:29 AM PST by rktman
I had hoped to write about "Duck Dynasty" this week, but that will have to wait. I have too much Kwanzaa shopping left to do. (Is it just me, or is Kwanzaa getting way too commercialized?)
Contrary to pundits sniping about Ted Cruz's campaign to repeal Obamacare, even the most boneheaded liberal ideas never "collapse on their own," which is why we still have public schools and President Obama. If nothing is done, Kwanza will join these horrors in the firmament of American life.

Sorry for the inactive link. Merry CHRISTMAS and “Happy, happy, happy” New Year.
We-uns lit our Kwanzaa candles and they burnt our house down while we were nestled all snug in our beds awaitin’ Santa Barry to deliver our stuff.
Interesting, I was just thinking yesterday that I hadn’t heard a single thing about Kwanzaa this year. Maybe Ann’s wrong on this one and it’s just such an embarrassment of a holiday it’ll die on the vine.
Ah Ha! LOL! Caught ya. You “thought” about it so the indoctrination worked. No matter what, there will be those that will foist it upon us like “sinko” de mayo. Profits for someone. Which is the capitalist way. Thinkin’ about opening a chain of “Kwanzaa Huts” in certain urban centers to carry all your “Kwanzaa Holiday Needs”.
Merry Christmas and “Happy, happy, happy” New Year.
Ah! So refreshing to be reminded we’re receiving such a worthy return on our investment of tax dollars in the F, the B, and the I. What would America ever have done without J. Edgar Hoover?
“Oh Rochester.” Jack Benney.
I’ll see your link and raise you one. Looks like the folks at rochester.edu left of some “celebrations”.
Love the graphics on this previous post.
Regards and Merry Christmas.
Pi still haven’t met anyone who celebrates Kwannzaa who didnt already celebrate Christmas or Chanukah (and still do).
The Kwanzaa Hoax
William J. Bennetta
Anywhere we are, Us is.
That looks like a line from an Amos N Andy show. One can easily imagine that it served as the motto of the Mystic Knights of the Sea, and that it was recited by such characters as The Kingfish, Andy Brown and Algonquin J. Calhoun.
In fact, however, the line that I have quoted is the motto of a real organization a real organization that was originally named United Slaves but now calls itself The Organization Us (or simply Us or US). It was created some 40 years ago, in Southern California, by a black racist who had begun life as Ron N. Everett but later had assumed the name Maulana Karenga.
Karenga known chiefly as the inventor of Kwanzaa, a fake African holiday that he contrived in 1966 has enjoyed a truly colorful career. He was a prominent black nationalist during the 1960s, when his organization was involved in various violent operations. He was sent to prison in 1971, after he and some of his pals tortured and raped two women with a soldering iron and a vise, among other things. He emerged from prison in 1974, and a few years later in a maneuver that even The Kingfish might have found difficult he got himself installed as the chairman of the Department of Black Studies at California State University at Long Beach. CSULB wasnt the only American university that got the racial willies during the 1970s and set up a tin-pot black-studies department, but CSULB (as far as I know) was the only one that hired a chairman who was a violent felon.
Karenga is still working at CSULB and is still running The Organization Us, and he and Us are still promoting his proprietary holiday, Kwanzaa. Prentice Hall is promoting it too, so The American Nation displays a picture of an American familys celebration of Kwanzaa but The American Nation doesnt tell anything about Karenga, about his rules for carrying out a celebration of Kwanzaa, or about his make-believe Africanism. Let me supply some of the information that Prentice Hall has hidden:
Kwanzaa is supposed to be celebrated from 26 December through 1 January: It competes with Christmas and Chanukah while incorporating some echoes of both, e.g., gift-giving and a ceremony built around a seven-holed candle-holder that recalls Judaisms seven-branched menorah.
Karenga has concocted some bits of lore, lingo, and mumbo-jumbo that are intended to make Kwanzaa look like something out of Africa instead of something from Los Angeles County, but his efforts have been feeble. If you scan The Official Kwanzaa Web Site [see note 1, below], youll read that the origins of Kwanzaa lie in the first harvest celebrations of Africa, which allegedly are recorded in African history as far back as ancient Egypt and Nubia but there is no explanation of why any ancient Egyptians or Nubians might have held harvest festivals around the time of the winter solstice, and there is no identification of the crops that they harvested. Karengas formula for celebrating Kwanzaa requires the use of two ears of maize but maize is a New World plant, and it wasnt known at all in ancient Africa.
True believers can purchase ears of maize and other Kwanzaa equipment (e.g., candles and seven-holed candle-holders and straw mats) from the University of Sankore Press, a company in Los Angeles. This outfit evidently is controlled by Us and serves as Uss marketing unit. It isnt a university press, and its name is a mockery. The so-called University of Sankore was an aggregation of Islamic schools that flourished at Timbuktu in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. No University of Sankore exists today.
In Karengas Kwanzaa-lingo, ears of maize are called by the Swahili name muhindi. In fact, all the objects that Karenga has worked into Kwanzaa have names taken from Swahili, which The Official Kwanzaa Web site describes as a Pan-African language and the most widely spoken African language. The labeling of Swahili as a Pan-African language is rubbish. Swahili a Bantu tongue that includes many words absorbed from Arabic, from Persian and from certain Indian languages is spoken by some 50 million people (i.e., about 7% of Africas population). Most of those Swahili-speakers are concentrated in eastern Africa, in a region that includes Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and a strip of Zaire. The language which is used most widely in Africa is Arabic; and indeed, Swahili was originally written in Arabic script [note 2].
Kwanzaa is a hoax a hoax built around fake history and pseudohistorical delusions. By attempting to dignify and promote Kwanzaa in The American Nation, Prentice Hall has joined in a flim-flam.
Roger that. Merry CHRISTmas and “Happy, happy, happy” New Year.

Cinco de Mayo is a real holiday. It recognizes Mexico’s military defeat of French invaders. Yeah, it’s no big accomplishment but it’s still an excuse for a party.
