    The Roots of "Kwanzaa": A FBI Invention?

    Contrary to popular misconception, Kwanzaa is not a traditional African celebration. Far from being pan-African (as it is sometimes represented), its celebrants are almost exclusively African-American. It was created by a Black nationalist named Ron Karenga (born Ron Everett), who later also became a Marxist. Kwanzaa was never celebrated prior to 1966.

    Karenga is the founder of United Slaves, a Black nationalist organization. Although a former Chair of the Black Studies department at California State University at Longbeach and an author of the mission statement for the Million Man March, he is also a former felon (convicted in 1971 for assault and torture over several days of two women).

    Kwanzaa is a secular, not religious, celebration. According to Karenga, it is based on the "seven principles of Blackness". In its inception, Kwanzaa was intended to be a Black alternative to Christmas. Although he later altered his orginal statements, Karenga is known to have said that Jesus was psychotic and that Blacks should renounce Christianity as a white religion.

    I believe that much of this "holiday" is rooted in the hatred of people of European descent and also of Western culture. As such, we should reject any association with it.

    Re: The roots of Kwanzaa

    I realize that many of attorney Ann Coulter's statements are often inflammatory. Nevertheless, she does have access to excellent sources and research.

    **************************************** *********************


    Ann Coulter: Kwanzaa Is FBI Invention


    Kwanzaa, the late-year holiday observed by several million African-Americans, was actually invented by a black revolutionary and dupe of the FBI, says columnist Ann Coulter.

    In her Dec. 27 column, "Kwanzaa: Holiday from the FBI" — an updated version of a column that first ran six years ago — Coulter writes: "Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI pawn, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana Karenga,” who was "a founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers and a dupe of the FBI."

    According to the acid-tongued author of Godless: The Church of Liberalism and other best sellers, "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 organization, the better. Karenga's United Slaves was perfect."

    Noting that black activist groups of the 1960s such as the Black Panthers neither hated whites nor sought armed revolution, Coulter said "those were the precepts of Karenga's United Slaves," who were "proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented 'African' names."

    Unsure of whether Karenga was a willing FBI dupe, or just a dupe, she quotes Karenga’s 1995 interview with Ethnic NewsWatch, when he "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."

    Coulter writes that it is now known that "the FBI fueled the bloody rivalry between the Panthers and Karenga's United Slaves," recalling that in what she called "one barbarous outburst," his organization "shot to death Black Panthers Al 'Bunchy' Carter and Deputy Minister John Huggins on the UCLA campus. Karenga himself served time, a useful stepping-stone for his current position as a black studies professor at California State University at Long Beach."

    When asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from "classical Marxism," Karenga "essentially explained that under Kawaida, we also hate whites,” according to Coulter.

    The seven principles of Kwanzaa, Coulter said, are the same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, and she remembers that in 1974, SLA kidnap victim and later member of the group Patricia Hearst posed next to the SLA banner, a seven-headed cobra. Each snake head stood for one of the SLA's revolutionary principles — which, she writes, "are the same seven 'principles' of Kwanzaa."

    Coulter concludes by explaining that 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, is that they have forgotten the FBI's tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa.

    "Now the 'holiday' concocted by an FBI dupe is honored in a presidential proclamation and public schools across the nation. The only principle Kwanzaa promotes is liberals' unbounded capacity to respect any faith but Christianity.”

    No offense, but are you serious?

    Who cares? Well, let’s see:

    First, how about the President of the United States? Kwanzaa has been recognized by Presidential Proclamation. In fact, Bush has given Kwanzaa greetings for each year of his presidency. We may disagree with him, but he is certainly someone, and not only that, but a someone of importance. Some might even say that this means that the Federal government has given it a degree of formal recognition.

    How about approximately 4.7 million Black Americans? That’s according to a 2004 National Retail Foundation survey. I think that is a few more Blacks than you’d have us to think.

    A number of colleges and universities recognize it and include Kwanzaa in their end of the year celebrations and statements. This includes more than just "a few black college profesors."

    Many public schools across the U.S. recognize it and teach that it is a respectable holiday. As the father of a school age child, I would like say that I am not OK with that.
