    WI Lawmaker Says Kwanzaa Is A Fake Holiday For People Who Hate America: Chicagoist

    Grothman (R-West Bend) put out a press release titled, "Why Must We Still Hear About Kwanzaa?" late last week in which he said public school districts that teach students about Kwanzaa are "irresponsible."

    Waring Fincke, left-wing West Bend lawyer and vice chair of the Washington County Democratic Party, encouraged people to learn more about Kwanzaa in a column in July. Fortunately, almost all black people ignore Waring Fincke and his ilk and their efforts to divide Americans.
    But why do they do it? They don't like America and seek to destroy it by pretending that its values as expressed in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution, don't apply to everyone. Mainstream Americans must be more outspoken on this issue. It's time it's slapped down once and for all.


    Grothman finishes by saying, "Be on the lookout if a K-12 or college teacher tries to tell your children or grandchildren it's a real holiday

    Kwanzaa was made up by a University of California Black Studies Professor back in what, 1965?

    Republicans are trying to trash the traditions of Kwanzaa so that they can push their artificially created holiday Christmas

    "Kwanzaa" is no more stupid than "Christmas." I mean, virgin birth and magic stars--come on, let's get real. That didn't actually happen, and there is absolutely no evidence that supports the idea of Christmas other than retail promotion.

    So, YEAH, Kwanzaa is stupid. So is Christmas, so ya'll are in the same boat if you ask me.

    Somebody made up the idea of Christmas, too. At least Kwanzaa is modern.

    Is there a rule that holidays can't be new?

    Kwaanza is a manufactured celebration with no connection to history or tradition. It owes its existence to a man who wanted something to do while he was in prison. This is what he came up with. As stated by the creator of Kwaanza it was created to give blacks an alternative to Christmas which is deemed too white for black nationalists to celebrate. There is just no particular tradition along with Kwaanza.

    We make up holidays all the time. Martin Luther King holiday is recent and made up. There isn't anything wrong with Kwaanza. If some people want to celebrate it, good for them. It just needs to be in its proper perspective, which is it occupies the exact same place as Agelong which is the observance of the legendary battle between Corellon Larethian and Gruumsh One-Eye according to the Elven calendar.

    It's Such A Fake Holiday.

    We had a neighbor for a few years that celebrated Kwanzaa with all night parties involving excruciatingly loud live music. The entire neighborhood was Thrilled when said neighbor moved out.
