Today is National Whiners Day (and the beginning of Kwanzaa)

Today is National Whiners Day. Rev. Kevin Zaborney created National Whiner’s Day in 1986. Zaborney started this day after observing many people whine non-stop the day after Christmas.

It’s also the beginning of Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by the Marxist black separatist Maulana Karenga. As Wikipedia notes, “In 1971, he was convicted of felony assault, torture, and false imprisonment….He chairs the Africana Studies Department at California State University.” The Marxist influence on Kwanzaa, and its preference for collectivism over individualism, is evident in some of its seven principles, such as “Ujima (collective work and responsibility)” and “Ujamaa (cooperative economics).”

Progressive journalists misleadingly depict Kwanzaa as an African-American holiday, but few African-Americans celebrate Kwanzaa, and many view it as weird. It is celebrated disproportionately by progressive white women who harbor feelings of racial guilt. A humorist called it “a unique and sacred holiday celebrated solely by white, female elementary school teachers.”

The irony of white women (or any women) celebrating Kwanzaa is that its inventor, Maulana Karenga, treated women horribly and abused them.  A lawyer asks, “Can someone explain to me why the Bill Cosby Show is off the air [because of his rape conviction, which was later overturned on a technicality], Louis CK’s work is hidden from streaming [because of sexual misconduct allegations against him], but people still take Kwanzaa seriously [despite Karenga’s horrific treatment of women]?”

As Wikipedia notes,

In 1971, Karenga was sentenced to one to 10 years in prison on counts of felony assault and false imprisonment.[16] One of the victims gave testimony of how Karenga and other men tortured her and another woman. The woman described having been stripped naked and beaten with an electrical cord. Karenga’s estranged wife, Brenda Lorraine Karenga, testified that she sat on the other woman’s stomach while another man forced water into her mouth through a hose.

A May 14, 1971, article in the Los Angeles Times described the testimony of one of the women:

“Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis’ mouth and placed against Miss Davis’ face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga…also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said. They also were hit on the heads with toasters.”

Less than 2% of Americans celebrate Kwanzaa, and many of those people are white progressives, not black people.
