Kwanzaa: The Scientology of Holidays

As the late Tony Snow once commented, "There is no part of Kwanzaa that is not fraudulent."

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.

Over the next few weeks, the media will be wishing people “Happy Holidays” and profiling families celebrating Kwanzaa — advent wreath lighters are too religious for media profiles.  What they won’t tell you is what I will tell you.

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.”  Apparently, the media agreed.

As the late Tony Snow once commented, “There is no part of Kwanzaa that is not fraudulent.”  Kwanzaa actually is the perfect holiday for the mainstream media. 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 mainstream media has been looking for a self-absorbing holiday.  Now they have it, with a self-absorbed President-Elect to boot.

In short, Kwanzaa is the perfect post-modern politically correct holiday.
