The politically incorrect truth about Kwanzaa

December 27, 2008

Marcia SegelsteinOkay, I’m breaking my own rule about not posting after Christmas day.  I wish I had known about this excellent article back on the 16th when it was originally published so I could have offered it to you all back then: The politically incorrect truth about Kwanzaa written by Marcia Segelstein.

After ten years as a producer for CBS News, over forty years as an Episcopalian, and fifteen years as a mother, Marcia Segelstein ( considers herself a reluctant rebel against the mainstream media, the Episcopal Church (and others which make up the rules instead of obeying them), and the decaying culture her children witness every day.  Her pieces have been published in “First Things,” “Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity,” and “BreakPointOnline,” and she is a contributing editor for Salvo magazine.

Here’s a brief excerpt:

Can you imagine schools, the media, and the culture in general embracing a holiday based on being white?

Despite what the official Kwanzaa website states, there is absolutely no evidence that the holiday is “celebrated by millions throughout the world African community.”  Nor is it “ancient,” as the website declares.  I doubt that most Africans have ever even heard of it, because it has no African roots.  There is no harvest celebration in Africa in December.

Kwanzaa is a fraud.  It is a holiday based on skin color.  It is the invention of a former black nationalist and ex-convict.

And we are like the townsfolk in the story of The Emperor’s New Clothes, afraid to say that he’s just plain naked.

Amen, Marcia…our great nation needs more rebels like you!  Kwanzaa is an interloping fraud, and we should all say so loudly and forcefully whenever and wherever its name is mentioned. 

And while we’re on the subject of taking back the reigns of our society, I urge you — take your kids out of the public school today and start teaching them yourself.  The public schools are nothing more than leftist propaganda indoctrination centers.  Fraudulent ideas like Kwanzaa would have no oxygen without the intentional collaboration of the public education complex in this country which is designed to produce useful idiots.
