Pelosi Accuses GOP Of Lack
Of Concern For Kwanzaa

Breitbart TV, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:The Architect, 12/13/2012 10:54:28 AM

"Is there not an appreciation for the Jewish holidays? The Christmas holiday? Kwanzaa? All the other things that families come together around? Bonding rituals important to the strength of our society? Do we not care about that? Well, the American people do. And they want to shop for it." - Wednesday, December 12, 2012, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on the house floor
Headline split by staff

Comments:
Why should a senior member of Congress give a hoot about an artificially created "Holiday" invented by a self proclaimed Communist?

I certainly have no concern for Kwanzaa, other than comic relief.

If a conservative white college professor had invented Christmas, I´m sure the democrats would not give it a second thought as well.

Kwanzaa (the extra ´A´ added for the coolness factor, per the inventor) is a made up, trumped up, socialist farce that very few American blacks even observe. It offends the heck out of me to see Kwanzaa stamps.

Thank God, I needed a good laugh this morning.

Pelosi is correct about this issue.

I´d rather celebrate Festivus (sp) than Kwanzaa.

No, no, Nancy. I am concerned. I am concerned that a holiday dreamt up by a fat sadist (convicted felon Maulana Kerenga, aka Ronald Everett), and based firmly upon racist principles, is being shoved simultaneously down the throats and up the rear ends of the American people, by the likes of you.

Somebody should send this imbecile a copy of Ann Coulters column regarding the origins of Kwanzaa. Of course it will have to be altered to appear to come from Terri Gross or Garrison Keillor to insure that Ms. Pelosi would deign to read it.

True story - leftist white co-worker asked a black co-worker what her family did for Kwanzaa. The black woman hadn´t heard of Kwanzaa and upon hearing it described said "That´s just nonsense. I celebrate Christmas and I´m not spending another dime on anything else!" And then she dumped on the MLK Jr. holiday for being a stupid day off in the middle of January after we´d all just been through Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year´s. I´d say more white people are concerned about Kwanzaa than there are blacks celebrating it. And Pelosi can´t even pronounce it.

"And they want to shop for it" - Pelosi

Ah, the Trayon Martin "hoodie" complete with presidential seal, would be the perfect Kwanzaa gift for that bro of your dreams. Comes only in XXXL.

Or, if you want to show him you really care during Kwanzaa, then a gold "grille" for your favorite baby daddy. He´s sure to flash that smile right through to the day when you tell him that he´s the one, again.

Last but not least, she´ll love the O carrying case for her Obamaphone. The Obama "O" logo on the case is encrusted with rhinestones so she can easily find it in her purse. Convenient pocket holds up to 3 EBT cards or 4 voter registration IDs.

Sincerest apologies to black radical & FBI stooge, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana Karenga, the creator of this separatist holiday.

It speaks volumes to ´liberal intellect´ that they think the Constitution is imaginary and/or pliable, but Kwanzaa is real and based on something other than (as noted above), the hallucinations of a convicted black felon. I´d remind Nancy that ´conviction´ was for basically kidnapping and torturing females, but we all know how imaginary ´gender´ issues are in what passes for the mind of Pelosi...

Look for San Francisco to fabricate a ´gay black´ Festivus celebration in the next few years...

Just to join in the celebration,..i believe all 2nd Amendment Americans should be able to carry guns on college campuses on Kwanza to emulate the racist violent gun carrying founder who was involved in a gun incident at UCLA...I think my deep concern for the holiday can be felt my all. Of course this will done after I celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace with a rousing singing of Silent Night...Now which holiday could bring me all that I want in my life?

Karanga or however he spells his made up name, is a convicted felon who teaches black studies in a california college. I read his text, which is the basis for course content of black studies courses all over the U.S., and it is something else!
He first espouses collective action by blacks in every part of their lives. Even a landscape artist who is black, must somehow include a black theme, he says.
The several principles of kwanzaa are mostly marxist.
And when he was asked why he put a first harvest festival at a time of year when there is no first harvest going on anywhere in the world, he said, "because that´s when the blood be partyin...."
And our local paper, the Erie, Pa times news, will breathlessly report on each day of kwanzaa.
I scoff in derision.

kwanzaa is surprisingly like Festivus:
- it´s a made-up holiday
- there is a perpetual "Airing of Grievances" all year long, usually accompanied by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
- kwanzaa celebrants are awed by "Feats of Strength," where the most notable career aspiration of kwanzaa-ites is to be a professional athlete
- and the tendency of kwanzaa-ites to label easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles" - (e.g., the election of the Øtard)
- the "aluminum pole" most often gathered around is one where there is weed or crack in it.

Yes!!! kwanzaa = Festivus!

Pelosi isn´t just a Demoncrap, she´s a MARYLAND Demoncrap! A member of the D´Alesandro tribe,whose father and brother both were highly esteemed in Maryland Demoncrap circles, Nan got much higher up the food chain than anyone could have expected.
Her concern about kwanzaa is in keeping with the Demoncrap technique to focus on any flappery or shiney object that keeps America´s attention away from the very real, and potentially fatal problems swirling around us.

In the old days we knew what an a**hole was. A**holes are now teaching and running everything into the ground because, like the guys who never needed landing instructions and crashed their stolen jet planes into the twin towers, these people are not trained to finish anything successfully. Their talent is to p*** you to get your attention. So a**holes get off on seeing stuff like this in print and watching some republicans wonder if she could be serious. She isn´t, it makes her happy to think you´re dumb. In the old days the only appropriate comment by a reporter to such a statement would have been -- after staring her down and making her cry for wasting his time -- "Geez, that´s something an a**hole would say. Even the blacks don´t care. Say, we´ve got deadlines lady. How about telling our readers why you guys think you can destroy America." But there are no reporters. There are no questions. There are only stolen elections, dictators at the controls of all the machinery, and many many nice republicans scared she might have a point -- as far as the eye can see.

#12, my wife works in event planning for a University president.
The univ. president asked "where´s the Kawanzaa stuff"?

My wife looked around but couldn´t find any items (the previous univ. prez was african-american who´d been to Obama´s innaugeration). So, we went to the craft stores, and none to be found. Even asked store clerk (who is black) and she had puzzled look on her face.

My wife had to make something because nothing could be found in the stores.

No culture on Earth celebrates Kwanzaa. Not even in Africa.
It didn´t originate in anyone´s culture - as has been widely pointed out it was dreamed up by a violent radical black Communist.
It is specifically and deliberately anti-Christian, and was made up to replace Christmas.
The Democrats and Independents also lack concern for Kwanzaa, and rightly so.
Nobody but the barest radical fringe - and pranksters - purchase Kwanzaa gifts, and I suspect the jokers are the larger market.

NOBODY CARES ABOUT Kwanzaa except black separatist racist and Nancy Pelosi.

There is no Kwanzaa in Africa because Kwanzaa is a fraudulent and stolen "holiday"...making it the perfect holiday for democrats and black racist in America.

The made up holiday and its tennants were stolen from the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) manifesto (anti-american terrorists, murderers and robbers who kidnapped Patty Hearst). The Kawanzaa creator is an affirmative action criminal and black separatist "Professor" Ronald McKinley Everett. Everett changed his name during the black power 60´s to Maulana Karenga, joined "Us" and charged with murder, robbery, rape, assault and kidnapping. Snitched for the FBI and ratted out Black Panther members to reduce his prison time. Upon release from jail was awarded honorary degrees and stated Kawanzaa "a social change organization which means "Us Black people" in protest of the white man´s Christmas...and admired by black separatist racist, Rev. Wright and his affirmative action church member Barack Obama.

Also, the reason this crap is taught in school is because it is a "social" holiday...not a religious holiday.

Swollen headed marxists like this one are merely power mad, greedy, and hell bound. It has nothing to do about you, except they want to control all people, like Satan has put into their hearts.
I could stand a little diversity these days, like having a house fall on her, like the witch she resembles, from the Wizard of Oz. Now that would give true, holiday delight! Would love to watch that on youtube! Obama just likes to see the top of her head, while she pays her respects to his little bishop.

Kwanzaa or Festivus for the rest of us is a big holiday in my house. I just finished my Kwanzaa shopping. The crowds were terrible but everyone was in a Kwanzaa holiday spirit.

Happy Kwanzaa and Merry Festivus to all and to all a good night.

#59, as popular as Kwanza is on this thread, the cold hard facts about "AXE" for "ASK" are that it´s derived from the same linguistic phenomenon that gives us "TAX" and "TASK"

Be creful who you give credit to. It´s not EBONICS, or even HEBONICS ~ it´s the version of Old English someone might speak ~ English in the Danelaw was different than elsehere.

Marvel Comics latest minority superhero is a teenaged Muslim-American girl of Pakistani descent who will take on the currently unused Ms. Marvel persona. The teen will be named Kamala Kahn, a Muslim girl going to high school and growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey. For the last few years the comics giant has been engaged in an effort to introduce "diversity" into a comics universe historically dominated by white, male superhero characters. Marvel has been floating all sorts of new minority superheroes into the comic book market in the hopes that one or more will stick with readers.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday
