    Principal Kicks Nativity Scene Out Of School Parents Want To Speak With School Officials POSTED: 7:30 PM EST December 17, 2003 UPDATED: 8:39 PM EST December 17, 2003 A controversy over holiday decorations at a school in Montgomery County continues over the removal of a nativity scene where other holiday displays were allowed to remain. There's a Christmas tree in the lobby of Horsham's Dorothea Simmons Elementary School, along with a Menorah and items representing Kwanzaa. Around the corner, a holiday display is complete just in time for the school's first holiday concert in 12 years. But there's a problem,...

    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 products of post-modern culture given legitimacy by a press hell bent on diminishing the Judeo-Christian heritage in the United States.Over the next few weeks, the media will be profiling families celebrating Kwanzaa — advent wreath lighters are too religious for media profiles. Kwanzaa has absolutely nothing...

    If there was ever any doubt as to the voter power welded by African-Americans in upcoming elections, the latest tweet from the GOP should cast away all doubt. On Thursday the GOP tweeted, "Happy Kwanzaa" wishes to all those who celebrate the holiday. "Happy Kwanzaa! Wishing those celebrating a joyous time with loved ones and a time of meaningful reflection ahead of the New Year," the tweet read. Most who commented on the tweet saw this as another flat attempt to reach out to black voters as primary season has officially begun.  "I want to extend my best wishes to...

    The Republican National Committee released a statement Friday, commemorating Kwanzaa. There's just one problem, the entire holiday is a fake and was invented out of thin air by a radical ex-con named Ron Karenga. Karenga invented Kwanzaa in 1966 and fashioned the phony holiday as a black alternative to Christmas. Karenga wanted a holiday that was less Eurocentric than Christmas which he considered the commercial exploitation of African Americans.

Good luck finding a single one that mentions the sorry fact that the holiday's creator was imprisoned for torturing a couple of African-American women.

    Coach Is Right ^ | December 26, 2013 | Kevin Collins
    Last year Ann Coulter wrote that Kwanzaa was only observed by “presidential–statement writers and white female public school teachers.” She was almost right. Kwanzaa is celebrated by a few groups but none of which are more well represented than white female liberal public school teachers (WFLPST). This is true because most public schools are closed during Kwanzaa season and of course the teachers don’t work during the week of December 26 to January 1st. Consequently, all but the hardest of hard core leftists will blow off Kwanzaa. The hard core Left cannot resist an opportunity to tell Black Americans what...

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.

    Magic 8 Ball says: “Very likely.” First a bit of history. Kwanzaa was concocted in 1966 by a black supremacist communist named Maulana Karenga (aka: Robert McKinley Everett) as an alternative to the white European holiday of Christmas. Kwanzaa, the Swahili word for “harvest” is as phony as it’s creator’s adopted name. No such celebration ever existed in Africa, in fact, during the time of the so-called ‘African harvest festival’ here in America it’s the middle of the growing season in Africa. Apparently geography wasn’t one of Karenga’s strong suits. In 2006 Karenga maintained that his invented holiday is celebrated...

    DALLAS — KwanzaaFest is an annual event that activist Thomas Muhammad helped found. It draws tens of thousands of people to Fair Park every second weekend in December. But News 8 has learned the cultural celebration is taking the year off. “2013 looks like it's not going to happen,” Muhammad said. More than two decades ago, Muhammad, Commissioner John Wiley Price, and others first decided to find a way to showcase African-American businesses during the holiday season. KwanzaaFest was born, but Commissioner Price's legal troubles are likely what killed it. Federal investigators continue to examine Price's finances with court documents...

Ron Karenga (aka Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga) invented the seven-day feast (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) in 1966, branding it a black alternative to Christmas. The idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the Christmas-season exploitation of African Americans. According to the official Kwanzaa Web site -- as opposed, say, to the Hallmark Cards Kwanzaa site -- the celebration was designed to foster "conditions that would enhance the revolutionary social change for the masses of Black Americans"...

Clearly, his high school hasn't embraced the multicultural thing and isn't teaching students about the 44-year-old Afrocentric holiday. But I don't knock his ignorance because the truth is that Kwanzaa has never caught on with the majority of black Americans. At the same time, though, it has grown in mainstream acceptance as evidenced by the Kwanzaa postal stamps and greeting cards.

    ANDERSON — Romando James, a professor emeritus at Clemson University, understands the traditions and purpose of Kwanzaa. He also knows he is among a minority of people who know what the cultural celebration is about. “We celebrate the first fruits, responsibility to community,” James said. “But when the mass of television and radios and even hip hop artists see there’s no big returns coming in, it just doesn’t happen.” In essence, because of the lack of understanding and the ability to make money of it, the celebration is losing some if its popularity, James said. Take Evita Broughton. Four years...

    Kwanzaa is May Day with a menorah. This fraudulent “holiday” is an affront to God, America, and the free market. Kwanzaa’s intense glorification of socialist economics should have placed it squarely on the ash heap of history. Instead, with each holiday season, its pernicious tentacles penetrate ever deeper into the national iconography. The mainstream media, forever in search of new ways to display its tolerance, has assimilated Kwanzaa into its pantheon of “approved” holidays. Kwanzaa cards pop up in stores; Kwanzaa books appear on the shelf; even that redoubtable conservative bastion the New York Post publishes an annual Kwanzaa-for-kids page...

  • Kwanzaa Created by a Rapist and Torturer?

    Every year I post a pre-Christmas piece on the farce that is Kwanzaa. This year will be no exception. Note, some of the newspaper articles I quote are several years old so some may no longer be online. Each year, with the onset of Christmas, we are treated to another gauzy, fluff piece about how great Kwanzaa is by yet another PC spewing newspaper columnist. This year, among many others, we find aggrandizement such as the Progressive's "Kwanzaa is more relevant than ever in recession," the Chattanooga Times Free Press with theirs titled, "Common ground," or the one from the...

    There are three aspects of Kwanzaa that most folks don't know. First, most blacks DON'T celebrate the invented holiday. Secondly, very few non-Americans even know of its existence and finally, its inventor is a kook and a violent convict. Born Ron Everett, Maulana Karenga gave up what he calls his "European name" right about the time he began to adopt his Marxist, black nationalistic views in the 1960s, right around the time he invented Kwanzaa (Dec. 26, 1966), a week-long celebration focusing on African heritage and culture. You see, Karenga believes in black separatism and black isolationism. He's a radical...

    Twas the night before Kwanzaa, and throughout the White House,Not a Kenyan was stirring, not even his spouse.No stockings were hung from the chimney with care,Because greenhouse emissions would heat up the air.The children were each tucked away in their beds,No nightmares of Public School troubling their heads.

    There are only 35 shopping days left until Christmas. I'm keenly aware of this primarily because of those overcaffeinated Glee-show-choir-in-red-white-and-blue-alpine-sweaters-and-ear-flaps-making-high school-cheerleading-pyramids Gap ads that started running about a week ago. You know, the ones where they chant a little ditty titled, annoyingly, "Happy Dowhateveryouwannukah." "Go Christmas! Go Hannukah! Go Kwanzaa! Go Solstice!" the exceptionally good-looking, multicultural, skinny-jeans-clad cheerbots shout. "You 86 the rules, you do what just feels right," they cheer, before entreating us to "do whatever [we] wannukkah" this ambiguous winter holiday season. Their jangly dance number ends by wishing us "a cheery night." How festive, you say? Meh....
  • (Christmas & Holiday) Decoration debate: Vague laws put municipalities in awkward position

    Nativity scenes made of real straw. Wise Men 2 feet tall. Menorahs bigger than a human being.   Holiday display in Teaneck. In many North Jersey municipalities, those sacred symbols can be found at the same place people get dog licenses, pay taxes and apply for building permits — town hall.  The display of religious items on public property has long been a charged discussion in American communities, and the case law governing holiday displays is still murky enough to confound local governments trying to create a festive atmosphere for residents.* Fair Lawn for years just lit a holiday tree....

    Blacks Have Been Conned About Kwanzaa! Don Boys, Ph.D. Let me state the obvious: If Blacks (or anyone else) want to celebrate Kwanzaa that is their right; however, it is my right to set the record straight. Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, nor is it a traditional “African thing.” Moreover, it is grounded in violence, corruption, and deceit. Furthermore, it has an admitted humanist foundation, so professing Christians should not go near the thing. Neither should black Americans! Yes, I know the U.S. Postal service issued a stamp honoring Kwanzaa but that only proves how shallow and stupid the...

    WAUWATOSA, Wis. -- A brawl at the Mayfair Mall is causing people to raise questions about the ongoing security problems at the shopping center. Mall administrators have not commented on the incident. Police said that a fight broke out between two men outside the mall’s Wet Seal store on Friday. After some initial brawling, the fight spilled into the store and as many as eight more people joined the fray. Police said that the battle turned the store into a mess and all the combatants scattered. Mall surveillance cameras helped capture three of the people who allegedly took part; they...

    UPDATE - Obatma is spending the first day of Kwanzaa with the Obama family! Obatma, Obama’s half-bat half-brother, arrived yesterday in Honolulu to spend time with his newfound family. He was wearing a scarf bearing the pan-African colors of red, black and green, and carrying one of the Kwanzaa candles. President-Elect Barack Obama briefly spoke to a small group of journalists a few blocks from his home, stating, “While our main celebration is Christmas, we were more than happy to join my brother in honoring his first Kwanzaa in these United States.”
