Kwanzaa: As fictional as Festivus -- so why does Obama call it a “vibrant celebration of African culture”?

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

Merry Christmas, Rebel audience! I know we’re supposed to say “holidays” these days, but that doesn’t work for me.

When I hear the word “holiday”, a Caribbean vacation comes to mind, not a Noel celebration.

Have you ever wondered about the other holidays that occur in December that we’re told to be inclusive of while being told we shouldn’t utter the “C” word?

Well, Hanukkah occurs in December but some might be surprised to learn that it’s a relatively minor Jewish holiday, so the other non-Christian “holiday” in December is Kwanzaa.

Yet, Kwanzaa is a complete fabrication. A make-believe holiday invented by an ex-convict, Ron N. Everett, who is known today as Dr. Maulana Karenga.

In addition to having a nasty penchant for torture, Karenga was described by a prison psychiatrist as “both paranoid and schizophrenic with hallucinations.” Not exactly Santa Claus, eh?

Listen in while I tell the tale of how Karenga’s “truthiness” got validation in our politically correct times leaving us with a totally make-believe holiday.

As we continue the descent into politically-correct madness, God bless, and a happy Festivus to one and all.

Wow Mark Eddy, your ignorance of the archeological evidence for the Bible and secular historical corroboration of Jesus’ existence and ministry is nothing short of astonishing. If ignorance was wealth, you’d be a multi-billionaire.

Wow Menz, who knew? To think I have been missing out on Kwanzaa all these years.

Somebody please give The Menzoid a bat.
He has hit another home run.

Christmas is a fictional holiday to some! Why pick on either Festivus or Kwanza?

Obama should have been a fiction writer! He’s good at writing fiction, and I’m sure he will pump out more lies from his black heart of stone, that nobody wants to hear.
commented 2015-12-28 13:58:55 -0500
Obama thinks that anything he utters is the truth!
commented 2015-12-28 13:21:26 -0500
Anyone celebrating this better look up its founder of the event and maybe they won’t consider this anymore. Oh yeah OBUMA two black women was tortured by the founder. What a disgrace this president is.

Trying to pass off this fictional cultural fantasy as a true event requires an incredible lack of common sense. Africa is a continent with 54 countries . In those 54 countries there are a little over 2,000 languages spoken and hundreds of distinct cultures. . Nigeria alone has 500 languages spoken. African countries with a Muslim majority ( which is at least 28 countries ) would never allow something as Kawanza to occur . Historically there is no mention of Kiwanza in any historical document found in European colonial records.
It’s a bullsh*t event but it’s not surprising President Wallflower recognizes it . Look at his environmental record – he’ll believe anything he’s told.

a celebration of an intolerant rape culture that practices genital mutilation…hmm…doesn’t sound like fun to me.

Mark Eddy. Your ignorance is overwhelming. You said Jesus Christ is a fictional character. He definitely existed as recorded by history. Whether you want to believe that He was conceived by God to the Virgin Mary for your salvation is your choice, but don’t spread lies that he wasn’t the most important person in history

Bravo Zulu you are right, Blacks captured Blacks and sold them to Whites. Black lives matter to who? Certainly not to Blacks who kill each other every day. Blacks are the real racists while Whites are mired in guilt.

Oh why don’t people wake up and smell the bull shit.

My response to the question in the title:

“Kwanzaa: As fictional as Festivus — so why does Obama call it a “vibrant celebration of African culture”?”

Because hussein obama is a lying sack of shit who promotes anything to disrupt western cloture – kwonza is also a bullshit party – an excuse for trouble and nothing more.

Before this Christmas Season I had herd of Kwanzaa but had no idea what it was, now that I know I’m glad to find out that it’s complete bull shit. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

@bravo Zulu, that is a great comment. It’s refreshing to see people doing research before plastering any old gibberish onto a public comment page. Thanks, and I hope it stays up for more people to read.

Kwanzaa is the product of a 60s Black nationalist radical and is by definition, racially and ethically exclusive. Kwanzaa’s founder said it was conceived as “an alternative to Christmas” to steer the black community towards the agendas of Black nationalism – Black nationalism was/is a racial doctrine of black apartheid and supremacy – it is the opposite of racial diversity, inclusive nationalism and the Christian message of the inclusive brotherhood of humanity.

Anyone who can make fallacious equivalencies between Kwanzaa and Christmas is arguing from a position of rank ignorance – of both Kwanzaa and Christian doctrines.

“Why are there people,of African descent in the Americas? Because christians from the Americas kidnapped them in their homeland and transports them over the ocean as slave labour. History documents these people and their culture very well; and this history is verified. "

Mark Eddy -

You do not know your history very well.

The pasty white sailor seldom went into the bush to capture the slave. He would have died doing it.

Two historical facts for you:

1. For the most part – in southern Africa the black man raided villages and captured other blacks and sold those blacks – their own people – into slavery.

2. For the most part – in the northern half of Africa the islamics did the same thing.

The pasty white sailor went into the slave markets and purchased them for re-sale.

The islamics still have slavery in the middle east.

The blacks and islamics still have slavery in Africa.

Black slavery left Saudi in the mid 50’s. No blacks are found in Saudi as all male slaves were castrated.

How do you deal with the United States free blacks who owned plantations and kept black slaves for their labour usage? No one ever mentions them – yet some of them owned huge plantations and hundreds of black slaves. Blacks doing it to blacks – yet they are never mentioned. You are a coward for ignoring this.

Unfortunately it is far more complex than the lefty anti white people know.

As a Nigerian recently told me when I was visiting his country -

“Time for black Americans to get over it – there is no one alive today who was even part of that old program. The whites in many countries granted freedom to the black man – yet the blacks are still pissed off about something none of them know anything about – they just THINK they do – because it is an easy excuse. In Africa today the black people still have slaves and those slaves are black – in fact black and islamic slavery is very wide spread in Africa. No one admits it and few black Americans even know this. They live in a self pity world.”

Should you not like these comments – do some research before you get uppity with me – better to speak from a platform of knowledge rather than spout foolishness. Remember the quote comes from a successful black businessman in Nigeria.

So – time for some folks to get their heads out of the sand – blacks are still living in a self pity world (not my words, the words of a black man from Nigeria) when in fact they could have all the advantages today if they put their minds and backs to it.

I am certain to be castigated for writing this – because the truth is always purposely buried.

Merry Christmas to all.

No problem – when the tax payer stops paying taxes, those who live with their hand out waiting for money will have to actually find a way to support themselves.

So, Rae Fraser – keep your cash hidden in the back because it is folks like you who will eventually have to pick up the pieces.

No one else recognizes that the interlopers come here to reap the crop sown by those before them – the people who worked hard and celebrated their holidays – and all the traditions are slowly being killed off as the west is being forced to adopt the life styles that “meet the approval” of the lefty folks.

Once those traditions and lifestyles are gone, this place will be exactly like the places the sick , lame, lazy and anti-western came from. Then they will struggle for a century or so to find another part of the world to go to and destroy.

‘White People are now the Slaves’—— cain’t even afford to have children no mo
Dis be Kwanzaa .

I thought Kwanzaa was welfare ‘Check Day’.

Kwanzaa isn’t ‘fictional’. It is a week long celebration established by African Americans to celebrate the culture and heritage of people of African descent in America. It’s real. Why are there people,of African descent in the Americas? Because christians from the Americas kidnapped them in their homeland and transports them over the ocean as slave labour. History documents these people and their culture very well; and this history is verified.

‘Christmas’, on the other hand, is an entirely fictional festival. That is because it purports to celebrate the birth of a person whose very existence is questionable, on a date that is completely random. There is absolutely no evidence to show that Jesus Christ ever actually existed. The ‘bible’ of the Christian cult cannot be considered as evidence, because no one knows whether it was part of man’s early and primitive attempts to document our history or whether the various ancient books it contains (written independently over thousands of years by various unknown authors) are simply intended to be fictional short stories. And there is no corroborating evidence for about 98% of the stories in this ‘bible’. The most likely explanation is that ‘the bible’ is a sort of ’Reader’s Digest’ of the half-remembered myths of illiterate goatherders. Moreover, all references to the Jesus character in this ‘bible’ were written down hundreds of years after he was alleged to have lived, by anonymous persons who had neither known him nor spoken with anyone who had met him. These books are called ‘the gospels’; stories about a god-like human with magical powers whose existence is completely uncorroborated by any other documentation from the period, written by anonymous author(s). Although there is no specific birthdate noted for this person in either the ‘bible’ or anywhere else, members of the christian chose to celebrate the birth of their fictional hero in the midst of the pagan winter solstice celebrations, which had been going on for centuries before the christian cult decided on a random date of birth for their god. You cannot verify the truth of ancient writings by simply quoting those very writings as though they were established fact. Christians are quite similar to ‘Trekkies’ (Star Trek fanatics) except that Trekkies seem to have at least a vague understanding that the ‘Star Trek’ stories are works of fiction.

Now, I ask you: which of these celebrations is more likely to be based on fiction? The ‘jesus’ and christmas myths, or that Africans were brought to the Americas as slaves?

You obviously are disingenuous if you went through all of the founders of Kwanzaa’s speech and you found the one part where he was making fun and you took it out of context. He was saying that Kwanzaa is not African as a whole but it is created from the best of African traditions. Our culture as stripped away from us so it is a way to reconnect us to the essence of it via a “holiday”. It is very African in the various 7 principles that make it up and is more profound than any holiday celebrated in America at it’s core. On the other hand Christmas with it’s wicked pagan roots and false date of the 25th and just about all other American holidays that once had a religious roots have been completely subverted into commercial exploits and their history is nefarious to say the least. Do your research…you sound more ignorant than racist but since you went out of your way to find that negative “quote” I tend to believe you are very racist and small minded. Fox news might have a position for you.

Why pick on Kwanzaa when Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Columbus Day, etc., are all made up? This seems a bit racist.
commented 2015-12-26 01:09:50 -0500
Aren’t all holidays made up though? I’m sure we can dig up dirt on each of those creators as well.
commented 2015-12-26 00:21:56 -0500
All holidays are made up. They don’t actually exist independent of people thinking they do. Hope that helps.

Merry Christmas.
commented 2015-12-25 23:27:19 -0500
Here it is you try to discredit the only celebration that doesn’t cater to or pander to the desires of white people. Kwanzaa is not a religious celebration but a cultural celebration in remembrance of positive things that tie back to our home contentient. Christmas from Christ’s Mass which was changed from Saturnalia, the Roman festival where men left there wives to give gifts to each other and have sex with men. Christmas was outlawed for years in Europe and America because in reality it’s a fictitious holiday that has nothing to do with Jesus. So you should reconsider writing sensationalized racist rhetoric that promotes falsehoods solely because of a president that doesn’t care about any race. This not only irresponsible but sheer tomfoolery.
