“ ... It's as if David Duke invented a holiday called "Anglika," which he based on the philosophy of "Mein Kampf" –– and clueless public school teachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday. ...”

December 26, 2012

by Ann Coulter

Is it just me, or does Kwanzaa seem to come earlier and earlier each year? And let's face it, Kwanzaa's gotten way too commercialized. 

A few years ago, I suspended my annual Kwanzaa column because my triumph over this fake holiday seemed complete. The only people still celebrating Kwanzaa were presidential-statement writers and white female public school teachers. 

But it seems to be creeping back. A few weeks ago, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., complained about having to stick around Washington for fiscal cliff negotiations by accusing Republicans of not caring about "families" coming together to bond during Kwanzaa. The private schools have picked up this PC nonsense from the public schools. (Soon, no one will know anything.) 

It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga –– aka Dr. Maulana Karenga –– founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. He was also a dupe of the FBI. 

In what was ultimately a foolish gamble, during the madness of the '60s, the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist organizations in order to discredit and split the left. The more preposterous the group, the better. 

By that criterion, Karenga's United Slaves was perfect. In the annals of the American '60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the czarist police. 

Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the '60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. They did not seek armed revolution (although some of their most high-profile leaders were drug dealers and murderers). Those were the precepts of Karenga's United Slaves. 

United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented "African" names. (That was a big help to the black community: How many boys named "Jamal" are currently in prison?)

It's as if David Duke invented a holiday called "Anglika," which he based on the philosophy of "Mein Kampf" -- and clueless public school teachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday. 

Whether Karenga was a willing dupe, or just a dupe, remains unclear. 

Curiously, in a 1995 interview with Ethnic NewsWatch, Karenga matter-of-factly explained that the forces out to get O.J. Simpson for the "framed" murder of two whites included: "the FBI, the CIA, the State Department, Interpol, the Chicago Police Department" and so on. Karenga should know about FBI infiltration. (He further noted that the evidence against O.J. "was not strong enough to prohibit or eliminate unreasonable doubt" -- an interesting standard of proof.) 

In the category of the-gentleman-doth-protest-too-much, back in the '70s, Karenga was quick to criticize rumors that black radicals were government-supported. When Nigerian newspapers claimed that some American black radicals were CIA operatives, Karenga publicly denounced the idea, saying, "Africans must stop generalizing about the loyalties and motives of Afro-Americans, including the widespread suspicion of black Americans being CIA agents." 

Now we know that the FBI fueled the bloody rivalry between the Panthers and United Slaves. In one barbarous outburst, Karenga's United Slaves shot to death two Black Panthers on the UCLA campus: Al "Bunchy" Carter and John Huggins. Karenga himself served time, a useful stepping-stone for his current position as a black studies professor at California State University at Long Beach. 

Karenga's invented holiday is a nutty blend of schmaltzy '60s rhetoric, black racism and Marxism. The seven principles of Kwanzaa are the very same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another charming legacy of the Worst Generation. 

In 1974, Patricia Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snake head stood for one of the SLA's revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani -- the exact same seven "principles" of Kwanzaa. 

Kwanzaa praises collectivism in every possible area of life -- economics, work, personality, even litter removal. ("Kuumba: Everyone should strive to improve the community and make it more beautiful.") It takes a village to raise a police snitch. 

When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from "classical Marxism," he essentially said that, under Kawaida, we also hate whites. (Kawaida, Kwanzaa and Kuumba are also the only three Kardashian sisters not to have their own shows on the E! network.) 

While taking the "best of early Chinese and Cuban socialism" -- excluding, one hopes, the forced abortions, imprisonment of homosexuals and forced labor -- Karenga said Kawaida practitioners believe one's racial identity "determines life conditions, life chances and self-understanding." There's an inclusive philosophy for you. 

Kwanzaa was the result of a '60s psychosis grafted onto the black community. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural nonsense that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karenga's United Slaves -- the violence, the Marxism, the insanity. 

Most absurdly, for leftists anyway, they have forgotten the FBI's tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa. 

Kwanzaa emerged not from Africa, but from the FBI's COINTELPRO. It is a holiday celebrated exclusively by idiot white liberals. Black people celebrate Christmas. (Merry Christmas, fellow Christians!) 

Sing to "Jingle Bells": 

Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell 
Whitey has to pay; 
Burning, shooting, oh what fun 
On this made-up holiday! 


  1. People are free to invent all the holidays they want, so long as no one else is forced to recognize and participate in them.

  2. You know what? Every black family that I personally know celebrates Kwanzaa.

    In fact, the black family that was such a help to Mr. AOW and me at Christmas 2009 no longer sends out Christmas cards. They send out Kwanzaa greetings and have done so ever since Obama won in 2008 -- not before.

  3. BTW, the black family that I mentioned about is quite wealthy and educated. And the woman of the household works for the CIA.

  4. Perhaps so, SilverFiddle, but this kind of thing is calculated to be divisive, and the results it produces are ultimately pernicious.

    We have been experiencing almost nothing but CULTURAL EROSION, DEGENERATION and DISSOLUTION since before you were born.

    I hate to think it's an inevitability we MUST tolerate, because we have no "right" to fight it.

    HAPPY SCREW YEAR, buddy!

  5. AOW, everything you say about the Cee Cee Scene is depressing and infuriating. I don't know how you can stand living in our nation's Crap-It-All.

    In truth the very center of our country has ROTTED OUT.


  6. Sorry, folks, but I just HAVE to say this:

    In celebration of Christmas Week I have posted FOURTEEN very fine, truly beautiful, life-affirming examples of positive achievements in Art, Music and Literature pertinent to the Season, and with the exception of some interesting remarks about the various Madonnas, all of it has been virtually IGNORED.

    Don't worry. I don't take it as a personal rejection, and I was more-than happy to revel in the research and do the work of digging out the gold, but what does this lack of appreciation say about the mentality that pervades the blogosphere?

    I won't attempt to answer the question, but I there's nothing encouraging or reassuring to me about it.


    "God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

    The way we treat His Gift reflects very poorly on us.

  7. FT,
    I don't blame you for making that comment @ 8:50 AM!

    It's true that the blogosphere, particularly the conservative blogosphere right now, is about stitch and bitch. Ugh.

  8. I would have forgotten about this entirely if it weren't for (m)Ann.

    Still, what's the issue?

  9. Well naturally it wouldn't bother you, Ducky, because you actively and ardently SUPPORT the pollution, dissolution and disintegration of our traditional culture of which the fostering of this idiotic race-baiting travesty is a part.

    Your attitude reminds me of the "Button Craze" that came in in the Sick-Sties. It was all summed up beautifully in one paritcular button emblazoned with the words WEAR THIS BUTTON to BUG the BOURGEOISIE.

    I laughed at the time, but looking back I can see it really was not funny. ALL this Ess-Aitch-Eye-Tea has been invented and promoted to disrupt, dismiss, erode and destroy what-used-to-be The Establishment.

    What we've received in its place is GHASTLY.

    We can no longer make any legitimate claim that we are a thoughtful, aware, serious-minded people.


  10. Remember the Panthers. Remember the Weathermen?

  11. Oh, NOW I rememer COINTELPRO.

    The Left discreditted ITSELF.

  12. @FT --- you, Ducky, because you actively and ardently SUPPORT the pollution, dissolution and disintegration of our traditional culture

    OUR traditional culture?

    Are you celebrating Christmas Jan.7?
    Do you eat meat during Lent?

    Let's hear about OUR culture?

  13. Exclusive of shopping and writing cards, which start right after Thanksgiving, I start celebrating Christmas two days early on December 22 to give time to put up the decorations. When I was a child, we waited till Christmas Eve.

    At my house we observe the twelve days of Christmas, so the tree and the door and the mantel and the outdoor lights get taken down and out away on January 6 -- the day after Twelfth Night.

    Multiculturalism did not exist when I was young, thank God. This did not mean we were unkind to or disdainful of others -- quite the opposite.

    The difference between then and now is that "others" were not yet openly disdainful of "us," and therein lies "the beef."

    I know it's hard for you, but do TRY to have a HAPPY New Year, Ducky. Believe it or not, we've grown quite fond of you. I may not be in harmony with your brand of thinking, but I do give you credit for being an honest man.

  14. Ducky, you would never understand. Everything I post with few exceptions is an example of what I am talking about.

    You're not a bad fellow, you're just wired differently, that's all. I've filled this blog with seasonal treasures I've known and loved all my life.

    Apparently, only one or two others have been able to identify with the wonderful stuff I grew up with.

    I don't feel sorry for me at all. Instead I feel sorry those who cannot share the joy and wonder I have experienced firsthand since early childhood.

    What people vainly imagine they are "enjoying" today is a travesty or a perversion of the real thing at best. at worst it's an absolute obliteration.

    As I said, you just couldn't understand, even if you wanted to. You just don't feel it. You couldn't with the way you've been conditioned any more than a nineteenth-century Russian peasant -- or a Mediaeval serf -- could identify with Cole Porter.
