My Triumph Over Kwanzaa!
560 AM WIND Townhall ^ | December 24, 2008 | Ann Coulter

My Triumph Over Kwanzaa! Ann Coulter Wednesday, December 24, 2008

Is it just me, or does Kwanzaa seem to come earlier and earlier each year?

This year, I believe my triumph over this synthetic holiday is nearly complete. The only mentions of Kwanzaa I've seen are humorous ones. Most important, for the first time in eight years, President George Bush appears not to have issued "Kwanzaa greetings" to honor this phony non-Christian holiday that is younger than I am.

It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana Karenga. Karenga was a founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers and a dupe of the FBI.

In what was probably ultimately a foolish gamble, during the madness of the '60s the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist organizations in order to discredit and split the left. The more preposterous the organization, the better. Using that criterion, Karenga's United Slaves was perfect. In the annals of the American '60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the czarist police.

Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the '60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. They did not seek armed revolution. Those were the precepts of Karenga's United Slaves. United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented "African" names. (That was a big help to the black community: How many boys named "Jamal" currently sit on death row?)

Whether Karenga was a willing dupe, or just a dupe, remains unclear. Curiously, in a 1995 interview with Ethnic NewsWatch, Karenga matter-of-factly explained that the forces out to get O.J. Simpson for the "framed" murder of two whites included: "the FBI, the CIA, the State Department, Interpol, the Chicago Police Department" and so on. Karenga should know about FBI infiltration. (He further noted that the evidence against O.J. "was not strong enough to prohibit or eliminate unreasonable doubt" -- an interesting standard of proof.)

In the category of the-gentleman-doth-protest-too-much, back in the '70s, Karenga was quick to criticize rumors that black radicals were government-supported. When Nigerian newspapers claimed that some American black radicals were CIA operatives, Karenga publicly denounced the idea, saying, "Africans must stop generalizing about the loyalties and motives of Afro-Americans, including the widespread suspicion of black Americans being CIA agents."

Now we know that the FBI fueled the bloody rivalry between the Panthers and United Slaves. In one barbarous outburst, Karenga's United Slaves shot to death Black Panthers Al "Bunchy" Carter and Deputy Minister John Huggins on the UCLA campus. Karenga himself served time, a useful stepping-stone for his current position as a black studies professor at California State University at Long Beach.

(Sing to "Jingle Bells") Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell Whitey has to pay; Burning, shooting, oh what fun On this made-up holiday!

Kwanzaa itself is a nutty blend of schmaltzy '60s rhetoric, black racism and Marxism. Indeed, the seven "principles" of Kwanzaa praise collectivism in every possible arena of life -- economics, work, personality, even litter removal. ("Kuumba: Everyone should strive to improve the community and make it more beautiful.") It takes a village to raise a police snitch.

When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from "classical Marxism," he essentially explained that under Kawaida, we also hate whites. While taking the "best of early Chinese and Cuban socialism" -- which one assumes would exclude the forced abortions, imprisonment of homosexuals and forced labor -- Kawaida practitioners believe one's racial identity "determines life conditions, life chances and self-understanding." There's an inclusive philosophy for you.

Coincidentally, the seven principles of Kwanzaa are the very same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another charming invention of the Worst Generation. In 1974, Patricia Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snake head stood for one of the SLA's revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani -- the exact same seven "principles" of Kwanzaa.

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, is that they have forgotten the FBI's tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa.

This is a holiday for white liberals -- the kind of holiday Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn probably celebrate. Meanwhile, most blacks celebrate Christmas.

Kwanzaa liberates no one; Christianity liberates everyone, proclaiming that we are all equal before God. "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28). Not surprisingly, it was practitioners of that faith who were at the forefront of the abolitionist and civil rights movements.

Next year this time, we'll find out if our new "Halfrican" president is really black or just another white liberal. If he's black enough to say the "brothers should pull up their pants," surely Obama can just say no to Kwanzaa.

‘Twas the Night Before Kwanzaa

‘Twas the night before Kwanzaa, and all through the slum,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a bum.
The children had braided their cornrows with care,
In the hope that Saint Malcolm X soon would be there.

The Crips and the Bloods made their holiday peace;
The protesters protested: “F*ck tha’ poleece!”
The Jews and Koreans hid under their beds,
While visions of rioters danced in their heads.

In a crackhouse, some pipeheads were lighting a rock,
When all of a sudden there came a loud knock.
And what to their wondering eyes did appear,
But Los Angeles Sheriffs in full riot gear!

Boards fell from the doorway and crashed to the floor,
And landed in front of a twelve year old whore.
The cops went to work with their nightsticks in hand,
Swinging at skulls as the Africans ran.

A beating ensued as they tried to escape,
But nobody got it on videotape.
A loud cry was heard as they managed to flee:
“Merry Christmas, you punks, from the L.A.P.D.!”

Maybe having Obama ignore Kwanazaa will do it in.

"Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the '60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. They did not seek armed revolution."

The Black Panthers were friggin communist revolutionaries! The idiot who wrote this piece doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

From the Maoist Internationist Movement:
[1960s/original] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES

"On May 1st, May Day [1969], the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.

Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.

The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."

To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: (Matthew 24:7a)

The English word "nation" was translated from the Greek Word "ethnos (Strong's G1484)" which is a root word for our English word "ethnic (Merriam-Webster)".

In short what scripture is telling us in Matthew is that in the end times there will be race wars.

More prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes.
How may of you have the eyes to see or the ears to hear?

As much as I hate the whole mess of these folks, this is a really blatant misleading paragraph, the one containing:
In one barbarous outburst, Karenga's United Slaves shot to death Black Panthers Al "Bunchy" Carter and Deputy Minister John Huggins on the UCLA campus. Karenga himself served time, a useful stepping-stone for his current position as a black studies professor at California State University at Long Beach.
That leaves and impression that he served time for the shootings, but that's not the case. If this were a leftist column, newsbusters.org would be all over it.

I think our points are valid enough on their own, without distortions.

This is one of the oddest Ann Coulter pieces I’ve ever read. First, the benevolent, kindly, Kumbaya-singing Black Panthers she remembers don’t seem at all like the Panthers I remember. Also, she repeatedly asserts that the FBI set various black radical organizations against each other without offering any proof.

So does Diversity George:
Presidential Message: Kwanzaa 2008

White House News
I send greetings to those observing Kwanzaa.

Kwanzaa is the celebration of African culture, community, and family traditions. For more than 40 years, millions of people have come together to reaffirm Nguzo Saba, the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa. These principles emphasize unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.

As people across our country gather to commemorate this seven-day celebration, may we all be reminded that Kwanzaa is an opportunity to celebrate the many contributions of our African American citizens.

Laura and I send our best wishes for a joyous Kwanzaa.

Kwanzaa has now been replaced with Obamzaa. Obamzaa will now be honored every Christmas in Kwanzaa’s place. Heck, even some counties have given their employees a holiday honoring Obamzaa.

The Panthers had a slogan that they used to utter every now and then: take ten when you go. Meaning kill ten white people before you are killed by the pigs i.e. police. They were virulently anti-American. Coulter must have had too many Chivas Regals before she wrote this article.

“In short what scripture is telling us in Matthew is that in the end times there will be race wars.”

Give it a rest. Matthew says nothing of the sort.

Of course, the End Times hawkers like Lindsey, LaHaye have written it in there, so I guess that makes it truth.

LOL... You wish it didn't say anything of the sort. Here's a news flash for you. So too does Mark 13 and Luke 21. That said I'll lay odds you do not believe the Bible to be the written word of God correct?

Did you even avail yourself to check out my post or is this just some knee-jerk reaction to something you don't want to accept?

“nation against nation” could be interpreted multiple ways. To say that it specifically says it’s a race war is reading way too much into the text.

Maybe when you look at current events you can squeeze them into prophetic scriptures but that’s a backwards way to do prophecy.

BTW, in Mark 13:2, the prophecy of the Temple being torn down, took place in 70 AD, just as prophesied. There was a band of gold between each of the foundation stones and when the Romans sacked the city they dismantled the stones to get the gold.

This prophecy has already taken place and wont’ be repeated — unless you believe in Double Reference prophecies. That’s the most absurd doctrine Lindsey and those guys have ever come up with. There is not a single instance in the Bible where a prophecy is foretold to take place multiple times.

Sounds to me like you're trying to convince yourself that you know what you're talking about. Don't bother. You don't.
For a clearer understanding of the world around you I refer you to God. Ask Him. Let Him give you revelation because as it stands right now this leaning upon your own understanding is failing you miserably.

Have a happy new year!

Your response is my favorite kind on FR.

It’s from someone who doesn’t know enough about a subject to prove you wrong, so they just say ‘you don’t know what you are talking about’.

Happy New Year to you, too.
