WHAT DOES KWANZAA HAVE TO DO WITH IT?
By Kelly McGinley
When the government is promoting holidays and religions with beliefs which are contrary to the American Dream, patriots should wake up and smell the stench. Not only are they promoting religions and cultures that are Marxist in origin, they are belittling and outlawing Christianity. They have gone so as far as to say Gods Word is hate speech and Christians are dangerous. One example is here in Mobile, Alabama. A government sponsored group decided that the name of the Christmas Parade was not inclusive enough to make Jews and African Americans comfortable. For them to participate, the name needed to be changed. When the Christians balked, the organizers and the media claimed the children were in danger and needed extra police protection on the Hanukah and Kwanzaa floats. They even tried to cancel the parade to "protect the children."
Hanukah is a great miracle and was celebrated by the Messiah and should be celebrated by all Christians along with all the feasts of Israel. But to bring it to the level of the Birth of Christ Jesus is ridiculous. It is a minor holiday in Jewish families when compared to the Passover and Yon Kippur. I have no problem with a Hanukah float in the Christmas parade, but does the name really need to be changed?
The biggest problem I have with all this is that parade organizers and government officials want to promote and bring Kwanzaa up to equal standing of Hanukah, let alone Christmas.
Kwanzaa is a cultural celebration invented in 1966 by an FBI informer Ron Everett, AKA Dr. Maulana Karenga, founder and leader of the United Slaves. The United Slaves was a violent nationalists gang, a rival to the Black Panthers. After Karenga invented Kwanzaa he spent time in prison for torturing black women. Kwanzaa was originally intended to be a black nationalist substitute for Christmas. His idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the Christmas season exploitation of African Americans. He was not very creative since he stole the philosophy from an ancient Egyptian mystic religion. The seven principles he got from the SLA, Symbionese Liberation Army, the same principles needed for a good revolutionary gang member. He then developed what appears to be a menorah candelabrum from the Jewish Temple to represent the 7 days of Kwanzaa. The holiday is very racist and Marxist and is pushing a philosophy that has never worked in any civilization to date.
The truth is that not very many blacks or whites have ever heard of Kwanzaa, yet it is being promoted by our government from the President on down. They even have their own stamp created by our government. Kwanzaa has found its way into the encyclopedia, the calendar, Hallmark cards, and parades, all without the majority of blacks or whites ever hearing about it. Africans in Africa have never heard of it, let alone ever celebrated it.
Patriots need to sit up and take notice, when your government is promoting a Marxist afro centrism holiday and demoting Christmas and outlawing Christianity.
Kwanzaa is not the only holiday our government is spending time and money on. Islam, a religion of war, is also being promoted with our tax dollars, again from the President on down. Even our local libraries have free fliers to teach about Islam. The public schools in California make the children dress in Muslim attire and receive Muslim names while they are learning all about it. Of course it is illegal to hand out free fliers on Christianity in public libraries and no mention of Christianity is allowed in the public schools. This year public school teachers all over the country were told not to mention Christmas in their classes. For some reason even retail stores tell their employees not to say "Merry Christmas" even though 96% of Americans celebrate Christmas, and no one has ever been hurt by those words. What is going on here?
America is great because America is a Christian nation, or at least was. The idea of freedom is a Christian concept from the Bible. Lots of quotes from our founding fathers prove this plus they stated that in order to keep freedom, Christianity needed to be promoted. Benjamin Franklin stated "Whoever shall introduce into public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world." Noah Webster wrote "the Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government� I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable, in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence." He also stated that we owe our freedom to genuine Christianity. In the case of Rex vs. Woolston, the court said ?."that whatever strikes at the root of Christianity tends manifestly to the dissolution of civil government?" Alex Tocqueville had a lot to say about this subject "The safeguard of morality is religion and morality is the best security of law as well as the surest pledge of freedom." Jedediah Morse son of Samuel Morse stated "to the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom... Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them." James Madison stated "almost all the civil liberty now enjoyed in the world owes its origin to the principles of the Christian religion?" Blasphemy against Christianity was a crime in America because it was a crime against our freedoms. An attack on Christianity is an attack on our freedoms.
Looking back on history there has never been freedom in Africa or in any Muslim countries, just a long history of bloodshed that comes from their philosophy and belief systems. Christianity is the only religion that makes us all equal, every person a brother, or a sister, where there are no different races; we are all apart of the same family. So patriots we must not be ashamed of America and her Christian roots which made her great. We must stop our government from outlawing Christianity while it promotes outlandish holidays and honors false religions. In America we allow all beliefs, but don't allow them to destroy our heritage and the foundation of our freedoms.
