Democrat Kamala Harris posted on Twitter about her childhood memories of a holiday meant only for African Americans called Kwanza, which is meant to be a special observance of African American’s own culture. The symbols are obviously borrowed a great deal from Judeo-Christian traditions, like a Menorah and Festival of Fist Fruits and Christmas. Still, they are meant to be specific to African Americans who do not embrace Jesus or America.
“Our Kwanzaa celebrations are one of my favorite childhood memories. The whole family would gather around across multiple generations, and we’d tell stories and light the candles. Whether you’re celebrating this year with those you live with or over Zoom, happy Kwanzaa!,” Harris posted.
STOLEN VALOR? KAMALA IS NOT FROM AFRICA
According to Wikipedia, Kwanza is pure Cultural Marxism meant to prepare African Americans for the violent overthrow of the Republic and is anti-Christian, and started in 1966 after the Watts Riots, where 34 people were murdered:
“American Maulana Karenga created Kwanzaa in 1966 during the aftermath of the Watts riots as a specifically African-American holiday. Karenga said his goal was to “give blacks an alternative to the existing holiday [of Christmas] and give blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and their history, rather than simply imitate the practice of the dominant society.” For Karenga, a major figure in the Black Power movement of the 1960s and 1970s, the creation of such holidays also underscored the essential premise that “you must have a cultural revolution before the violent revolution. The cultural revolution gives identity, purpose, and direction.”
According to Karenga, the name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili phrase matunda ya kwanza, meaning “first fruits.” First fruits festivals exist in Southern Africa, celebrated in December/January with the southern solstice, and Karenga was partly inspired by an account he read of the Zulu festival Umkhosi Wokweshwama. It was decided to spell the holiday’s name with an additional “a” to have a symbolic seven letters.
During the early years of Kwanzaa, Karenga said it was meant to be an alternative to Christmas. He believed Jesus was psychotic and Christianity was a “White” religion that Black people should shun.
Harris was raised in Hinduism. Her Father and Mother divorced when she was seven, so it is unclear why a Hindu Indian would celebrate a holiday for African Americans, in Canada, with generations of their family gathered around. Whose family?
Harris’s father is Jamaican, not a country on the Continent of Africa. She was raised in Canada for a good part of her life.
Wanting desperately to appear to share the struggle with African Americans, Harris insists that she intimately understands the life of an African American growing up in America where she was continuously victimized by White culture and is the greatest superhero overcoming great obstacles in an unjust land.
Except none of that is true at all, and therefore it is embarrassing to see her public displays of fiction. Someone needs to tell her Harris she is struggling with the truth. Women should do better at such important government levels, wanting the honor and privilege to represent the American people’s interests.
Kamala would have been a little girl in 1966. That is about all we can confirm. And if Kamala Harris becomes President, perhaps Monika Lewinsky can be her Attorney General, and all of the Feminists will celebrate how leftist women get into the White House.
