Richmond Hill spends real taxpayer money to celebrate fake Kwanzaa holiday

David MenziesMission Specialist

The other day I came across an ad in the classified section of the aptly-named Richmond Hill Liberal placed by the Town of Richmond Hill. It featured a photo of the mayor and council with a message that read, “Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa.”

Props to the town for actually saying the C-word, and ask any Jew and they’ll tell you Hanukkah is a b-list holiday at best, but Kwanzaa? Really?

That’s not even just a b-list holiday, it’s a fake holiday. It’s a complete fabrication invented by Ron Everett, known today as Dr. Maulana Karenga.

In an interview, Karenga openly confessed that Kwanzaa is a fantasy, saying:

“People think it’s African. But it’s not. I wanted to give black people a holiday of their own. So I came up with Kwanzaa. I said it was African because you know 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!”

But it gets worse when you hear about Dr. Karenga’s resume. He’s not exactly the African version of Santa Claus.

Watch as I fill you in on Dr. Karenga’s history and tell you the truth about the fake holiday he created.

Since I knew this about Kwanzaa, I wanted to ask the mayor why he thought it was a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars to commemorate a fake holiday but his honour declined to return my call.

If he wants to celebrate a made-up holiday, he’s free to do so but he should do it on his own dime and not spend precious tax dollars championing a fake holiday that nobody in town celebrates in the first place.

I don’t really care what they celebrate——long as they don’t riot.

I was very encouraged today.. The Younguns are not all that impressed with Justin and they are doubting his Wisdom ,in general, but especially with Syrians and CO2.
It made me feel good.

If it makes people feel better about themselves more accepted and part of something bigger than themselves, who am I to say it sucks

- if on the other hand it s a fake religion being used to propel Marxist dogmas through a quasi-religious dogma, then I resent my tax money being used to poison peoples minds.

I don’t know of any relatives or friends in the Black community that celebrates Kwanzaa.

I am a Black person who is part of the Hebrew Roots movement. I am celebrating Hanukkah. It is ridiculous to celebrate a harvest festival in the middle of winter like Kwanzaa professes to be.

Blacks are trying to find themselves as a culture. Cultures take a long time to develop, hundreds or thousands of years. They aren’t forged over night.

Who is ‘us’? As in “don’t take your frustrations out on us”.
You, my friend, need some very serious psychiatric help. I’m not joking. You have serious problems with your perception of life.

Ryan Cohen you are full of it and sorry but many blacks are Christian as well. And how about you tell black people to stop worrying about what white people do. Oh would that be racist while the other way isn’t for some reason?

Ryan Cohen, don’t tell me what I celebrate on Christmas. I get to decide that, not society, not the media, not the government, not the the merchants, and definitely not you. I celebrate the birth of Jesus. Whether that’s the day he was born or not is irrelevant…. that’s still the day we Christians choose to celebrate. As far as the other Christmas traditions are concerned, at least they are steeped in cultures and traditions that can be traced back hundreds of years. So whether you want to be a Grinch or not, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I guess Richmond Hill town council wanted to be “inclusive” and let black Richmond Hillians (I was raised in Richmond Hill, Ontario) know that their taxes are being wasted like everyone elses’ in the name of political correctness too.

To Ray Cohen: Christians and Christianity, the founding base of Western civilization that you are the beneficiary of has celebrated the birth of Christ for almost 2000 years. You have the freedom to participate or not, but don’t rain on the parade of those who do. It demonstrates a lack of tolerance on your part.

And by the way, Merry Christmas.

Very interesting, because Christmas is “fake” as well. It claims to celebrate the birth of Jesus, which is a lie. Santa Claus, a fat white man in a red suit that that rides a sleigh being lead by reindeer (sorry I had to chuckle) and can magically deliver gifts to every single child in a single night while sliding down a chimney (sorrry I had to laugh again), he’s fake. The Christmas tree has no real symbolic relevance. And what you want bring up tax payer money? This country uses my tax dollars and bombs little children in other countries. White people, let me give you some advice. Stop worrying about what black people do. Just mind your business, seriously. I know a lot of you secretly hate your lives and want to kill your self, but don’t take your frustrations out on us. With that being said, hoe hoe hoe, merry christmas! HAPPY KWANZAA!!!! ✌🏼️

Bah! And Humbug! Scrooge did say, until he found his Christmas Day. Merry Christmas to one and all.

I was inclined to go on a little rant, but Terry’s right, it is Christmas. Merry Christmas to all.

I’m tempted to say bah humbug, but it is Christmas after all. Merry Christmas to one and all🎄
