It seems like all I hear these days is how liberals are red-hot for teaching history, while retrograde troglodytes on the right are demanding that we suppress the teaching of history by banning critical race theory (CRT). Haranguing students, day in day out, about their white privilege is just teaching history.
On this beloved Kwanzaa week, heres some history for you.
Celebrated exclusively by white liberals, Kwanzaa is a fake holiday invented in 1966 by black radical/FBI stooge Ron Karenga aka Dr. Maulana Karenga, founder of United Slaves, the violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural gibberish that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karengas United Slaves. Kwanzaa emerged not from Africa, but from the FBIs COINTELPRO. The United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented African names.
In what was ultimately a foolish gambit, 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. (Its the same function Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez serves today.)
By that criterion, Karengas United Slaves was perfect.
Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the 60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. Although some of their most high-profile leaders were drug dealers and murderers, they did not seek armed revolution.
No, those were the precepts of Karengas United Slaves. The United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented African names. (I will not be shooting any Black Panthers this week because I am Kwanzaa-reform, and we are not that observant.)
Its as if David Duke invented a holiday called Anglika, which he based on the philosophy of Mein Kampf and clueless public schoolteachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday.
In the category of the-gentleman-doth-protest-too-much, back in the 70s, Karenga was quick to criticize Nigerian newspapers that claimed that certain American black radicals were CIA operatives. exp-player-logo Read More
Now we know the truth: The FBI fueled the bloody rivalry between the Panthers and United Slaves. In the annals of the American 60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the czarist police. Whether Karenga was a willing FBI dupe, or just a dupe, remains unclear.
In one barbarous outburst, Karengas United Slaves shot two Black Panthers to death on the UCLA campus: Al Bunchy Carter and John Huggins. Karenga himself served time, a useful stepping-stone for his current position as the chair of the Africana Studies Department at California State University at Long Beach.
The left has forgotten the FBIs tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa. The esteemed Cal State professors invented holiday is a nutty blend of schmaltzy 60s rhetoric, black racism and Marxism. The seven principles of Kwanzaa are the same as those of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another invention of The Worst Generation.
In 1974, Patty Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, famously posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snakehead stood for one of the SLAs revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani the exact same seven principles of Kwanzaa.
When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from classical Marxism, he essentially said that, under Kawaida, we also hate whites. (And heres something interesting: 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 (is that the mass murder or the seizure of private property?), Karenga said Kawaida practitioners believe ones racial identity determines life conditions, life chances and self-understanding.
