    Oh boy, Posting this is going to ramp up the rhetoric and I’m going to be called all sorts of racist names for doing it.


    One thing I’ve noticed this year; almost nothing on the boob tube about it nor in the news feeds.


    Suddenly lost its popularity?


    Those who are around my age woke up one December and discovered that the “holiday season” of Christmas and New Year’s became a trio, with the addition of something called Kwanzaa. Oh, sure there were rumblings of a new holiday. But strangely in this country where political correctness is on overload, a day invented in 1966 by a rapist who ran a Black separatist group is considered by some as a holiday on par with Christmas, or New Year’s. Kwanzaa is exclusively an American holiday and is not celebrated in any other part of the world (including Africa). The name Kwanzaa comes from a phrase of Swahili origin, “Matunda Ya Kwanza”, and translates as “First Fruits of the Harvest.” That’s right it’s supposed to be spelled with only one “a,” the very name of this supposed holiday is a typo.

    Kwanzaa runs from December 26th-January 1st. It’s supposed to be a week-long holiday honoring African culture and traditions but is tainted by its founder and original purpose.

    The man who created the holiday, Maulana Karenga, was convicted in 1971 of torturing two women who were members of US (United Slaves), a black nationalist cult he had founded. A May 14, 1971, article in the Los Angeles Times related the testimony of one of the women:

    Heri za Kwanzaa. Todays principle is Kujichagulia or self determination.


    Kwanzaa is an amazing holiday

    Whelp --- you're certainly a fascistic little whiner, injecting yourself into other people's business, aren't you.

    Oh by the way can you link us to your threads on "Christmas -- a Fraud Holiday with a Power Goal Created by Criminal Pedophiles" and "Channukah -- a Bullshit Holiday with a Revolutionary Goal Created by Militants"? Thanks so much.

    Nobody is going to force you to celebrate Kwanzaa any more than they are going to force you to watch the Superbowl. Quit whining about something that doesn't concern you. or effect you in any way.

    Maulana Karenga started out as an American Muslim but decided that the brothers needed to testify so he created a religion out of pilgrim corn and rest is history. :4_13_65:

    Well, to be fair, all religious holidays are fake scams.

    I still dont understand Xmas. Fat white guy flies in from the north pole bringing gifts. people put trees in their homes and decorate them with lights and other bullshit, Commercials constantly tugging at your walnut. All to celebrate the birth of someone that was born in the middle east but not on 25DEC?

    Festivous (for the rest of us) is not a religious holiday and therefore, the only holiday that can truly be celebrated by all.

    And behind this question is the larger one, how the fuck is it of any relevance to this "Conservative Firing Line" blog page that insults the memory of Bill Buckley by co-opting his program name and heralds itself in a font that looks like it was stenciled on a shipping container?

    Whiners with way too much time on their hands.

    It's quite easy to read up on the origins of Christmas and Santa Clause if you are actually interested.

    Yule is the pagan (Nordic-Germanic) celebration of the Winter Solstice. Nordic people decorated their homes with evergreens and burnt logs inscribed with runes for good fortune. Children put out their shoes filled with hay for Odin's eight-legged horse, Sleipnir.

    As Christianity spread, it incorporated the myths and traditions of local pagans. Yule was fused with Christmas. Odin became Santa, and Sleipnir became eight reindeer.

    Irrefutable Proof that Santa is Odin
