    Default Kwanzaa: A Fraudulent Holiday for the Self-Absorbed

    https://ewerickson.substack.com/p/kw...nt-holiday-for


    What do you get when you take a bad science fiction writer with a desire for immortality and add a lust for tax breaks? Scientology. What do you get when you take a neo-marxist felon and add a desire for black nationalism? Kwanzaa. What do both Kwanzaa and Scientology have in common? They are fraudulent products of post-modern culture given legitimacy by a press hell bent on diminishing the Judeo-Christian heritage in the United States.Kwanzaa has absolutely nothing to do with Africa and everything to do with hating the United States. Kwanzaa is the brain child of Ron Everett, who you will not be surprised to learn, chaired the African American Studies department of California State University, Long Beach, from 1989 to 2002. Some time before that, he spent several years in jail for torture, changed his name to Maulana Ron Karenga, put on a dashiki, embraced marxism, and declared Kwanzaa a real holiday.
    In 1971, a California jury convicted Karenga of assaulting and torturing two women. A May 14, 1971, article in the Los Angeles Times documented the torture: “Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Ms. Davis’s mouth and placed against Ms. Davis’s face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said.”
    Being California, the state released Mr. Karenga in 1975, then promptly admitted him to public universities so he could become Dr. Ron Karenga. In 1977, Karenga outlined the principles of Kwanzaa and later noted, “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 were partying.” Karenga went on to call Christ “psychotic” and declared Christianity a “white religion.”
    As the late, great Tony Snow once commented, “There is no part of Kwanzaa that is not fraudulent.” Kwanzaa actually is the perfect holiday for post-modern American secularism as celebrated by the rich, white elite of the left. Every other holiday celebrates a religious miracle, patriotic heros, or America itself. Every other holiday celebrates something greater than the self. Kwanzaa was made up by a felon establishing a holiday whereby people can celebrates the racial self. The self-absorbed secular elite have been looking for a self-absorbing holiday. Now they have it with a secular political class happy to embrace it too.
    In short, Kwanzaa is the perfect post-modern politically correct holiday.

    Mr. Erickson, who is a conservative evangelical American blogger and radio host, is completely off base here. He is obviously grasping for straws in order to establish a white nationalist point of view. -----------> Kwanzaa is based on ancient celebrations from Egypt and parts of Africa. Following the Watts riots in 1966, Dr. Karenga was looking for a way to unify African-Americans as a community. The name Kwanzaa is derived from the phrase “matunda ya kwanza” which means “first fruits” in Swahili. It has several phases and rituals, similar to the Jewish observance of Hanukkah. ------------> https://www.africa.upenn.edu/K-12/Kw...hat_16661.html

    With that you name a holiday that celebrates a race.
    I thought liberals were all about racial equality.
    And not one race presenting itself as special/superior and so much better.

    Kwanzaa is about skin color and celebrating that over the other races. --Tyr

    Ronald Everett aka Ron Karenga aka Dr. Karenga is who invented kwanzaa. He was a miiltant & a woman torturer, who spent time in prison for exactly that.
