Kwanzaa Was Concocted By A Deranged Felon Who Brutally Tortured Two Naked Women ^ | 12/24/2016 | Eric Owens

Posted on 12/24/2016 7:29:42 AM PST by rktman

It’s Christmastime, America, and you know what that means: It’s the season when public schools across the fruited plain are teeming with lessons about Kwanzaa and a handful of other holidays which aren’t Christmas.

As a public service, then, The Daily Caller is here to tell you the true — and truly bizarre — history of the violent, deranged and radical black nationalist who concocted the completely artificial holiday of Kwanzaa in 1966.

NOT the annual Ann Coulter kwanzaa review. Of course some might say that the whole thing was made up by the FBI in order to entrap poor ron and turn in him in to a CI. Yeah, he's right up there with billy boy aires as far as being an assclown that somehow managed to score big time in life's lottery. Than again, life ain't fair.


P.S. If I had a facebook "presence" I'd be posting this.

Urban legend has it that kwanzaa was conceived on the campus of my alma mater Long Beach State. But the timeline never fit the reality.

You know, with a little capital and some creativity, we could make a killin’ on this. A chain of stores carrying items for this time honored ancient celebration. Yup, ‘Kwanzaa Hut’ shops in every town. ;-)

Kwanzaa is right up there with the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster: an ‘alternative’ to a belief system that people have died rather than recant and which is directly responsible for every freedom they enjoy. Not to mention maintaining the high standard of living.

The only difference between people who actually believe in these things and a disrespectful toddler who starts mockingly ‘worshiping’ his teddybear because he hates being made to go to Sunday School is that the toddler gets the apocalyptic spanking he well deserves.

Kwanzaa is the official holiday of Obama and Jeremiah Wright's communist-concocted "religion": Black Liberation Theology


Creator of the 'African American' holiday Kwanzaa

• Socialist activist and black nationalist

• Founder of the militant black power organization United Slaves

• In 1971 was arrested for assaulting and torturing two female members of his organization

• Professor and chairman of the Department of Black Studies at California State University, Long Beach

• Has spoken at the Socialist Scholars Conference

Born Ron Everett in July 1941, Professor Maulana Karenga has been Chairman of the Department of Black Studies at California State University, Long Beach, since 1989. An activist and Marxist, Karenga is best known for having created the holiday Kwanzaa in 1966.

"People think it's African, but it's not," he said about his holiday in an interview quoted in the Washington Post.

"I came up with Kwanzaa because black people in this country 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 would be partying."

In the mid-1960s, he gave himself the title "Maulana," Swahili for "master teacher," and is now widely referred to simply as Maulana Karenga.

Professing a devotion to combating "systemic racism," Karenga began his foray into black nationalism in the early 1960s, founding the militant black power organization United Slaves (US) to "provide a philosophy, a set of principles and a program which inspire a personal and social practice that not only satisfies human need but transforms people in the process, making them self-conscious agents of their own life and liberation."

A number of United Slaves members, among them Karenga, have served prison time for various crimes including murder.

In 1969, United Slaves was involved in a disagreement with the Black Panthers regarding two candidates who were vying for a directorial position at UCLA's newly created Afro-American Studies Center. US backed one contender, while the Black Panthers supported another. The dispute ended when two US members shot and killed two members of the Black Panthers.

In 1971, Karenga and US members Louis Smith and Luz Maria Tamayo were convicted of felonious assault and false imprisonment for having tortured two female US members, Gail Davis and Deborah Jones. Following Karenga's subsequent incarceration in a California State prison, US temporarily disbanded before being reestablished by Karenga in 1975.

Notwithstanding the track record of disputes between US and the Black Panthers, Karenga once spoke at an event that featured Black Panther co-founder Bobby Seale - the 17th annual Black Consciousness Conference in 1996.

In 1977 Karenga devised a cultural philosophy called Kawaida, a Swahili term for "tradition" and "reason," from which the holiday Kwanzaa arose.

Karenga billed Kwanzaa as an alternative to Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions. He asked his followers to follow the seven "principles" of Kwanzaa, known as the "Nguzu Saba," or the "Seven Principles of Blackness," which are observed during the seven days of Kwanzaa.

The principles are as follows:

Umoja (Unity): "to strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race"

Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): "to define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves"

Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): "to build and maintain our community together and make our brother's and sister's problems our problems and to solve them together"

Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): "to build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together"

Nia (Purpose): "to make our collective vocation the building and development of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness"

Kuumba (Creativity): "to do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it"

Imani (Faith): "to believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle"

In summation, Karenga's "Seven Principals of Blackness" are the Marxist precepts of parity and proletariat unity.

In a 2002 article, Ann Coulter observed further that the seven principles of Kwanzaa are identical to those of the 1970s [Communist] domestic terrorist group, the Symbionese Liberation Army [SLA].

A self-proclaimed "African socialist," Karenga has said: "One of the most urgent challenges ... of our time is the reconstruction of U.S. social policy ... making the U.S. a just and good society in a multicultural and global context. What we have to do in this talking, this ethical vision, has first of all to be separated from the right-wing insistence on morality."

In 1998 Karenga and United Slaves issued a statement in support of "the Cuban people in their heroic and historic struggle to defend their right of self-determination and to break out of the unjust and immoral economic boycott by the U.S. government."

In Karenga's calculus, capitalism was the cause of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He writes that "... it is not the material goods some of us have that they [Muslims] hate the U.S. for, but for attempts to impose the materialism of a consumerist society on them, to turn them into homogenized consumers of a McWorld system. And perhaps it is not that they are against freedom and justice and related values, but against the U.S.-imposed interpretation of this. Perhaps, they resent the arrogance of imposition and the inequities imposed by a globalism that grinds them underfoot and denies them a right of self-determination and security that we say are indispensable to us and our allies."

In a separate assessment of 9/11, Karenga said: "We might discover ... that [the hijackers] did it to: (1) avenge years of state terrorism, mass murder, selective assassination, collective punishment and other forms of oppression by the U.S. and its allies; (2) to demonstrate vulnerability of the U.S. at its crucial centers of power ...; (3) to cause the rulers of the country to fear, to be uncertain and to reverse the role of hunter and hunted; (4) to insist on being heard and considered in human, political and military terms; (5) to demonstrate a capacity to strike regardless of the superior strength and technology of the U.S.; and (6) to dramatize and underline in a highly visible way the asymmetry of suffering between the U.S. and the oppressed in the world."

Karenga has been an outspoken critic of the War in Iraq and the larger War on Terror. In an April 2003 event at Cal State, he called the Iraq War an exercise in "self-aggrandizement" by the U.S. On another occasion he characterized it as "part of a post-9/11 imperial offensive which carries with it racist and colonial conversations and commitments of 'crusades' to protect 'the civilized world' against 'dark and evil nations' in 'dark corners of the world.'"

Karenga holds two Ph-Ds - one in Political Science, with a focus on the theory and practice of nationalism (obtained from the United States International University), and one in Social Ethics, with a focus on the classical African ethics of ancient Egypt (obtained from the University of Southern California). He also holds an honorary Doctorate of Philosophy from the University of Durban-Westville, South Africa.

Karenga has been a featured speaker at the Socialist Scholars Conference, which is held each year by the City University of New York's chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. Past speakers and panel members have included Michael Moore, Al Sharpton, Noam Chomsky, Ron Dellums, Stanley Aronowitz, John Bellamy Foster, Jerrold Nadler, and Major Owens.

Karenga has authored such books as Introduction to Black Studies, the most widely used introductory text in Black Studies, and Kawaida: A Communitarian African Philosophy. He has received numerous awards, including the National Leadership Award for Outstanding Scholarly Achievements in Black Studies from the National Council for Black Studies, and the Pioneer Award from the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and Citizenship Education Fund.

That’s because African Americans do not celebrate it. Some white liberals do, though, to look...well, progressive. What dumbasses.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine

Monday, May 5, 2008
FoxNews/Hannity's America
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]

(some key excerpts)

JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.

I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."

SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate

Kathy Shaidle,
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama's pastor in a heated interview about his Church's teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]

By Fr. Robert Sirico | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

Ha, ha, every time we pass a quonset hut, we always call it a Kwanzaa Hut... out of deep respect, of course. /s

My husband wants to open a store called Cheap Sh*t. He figures it would be quite popular.
