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 Introduces
Muslim Superhero
Breitbart, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article

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.

"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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio
lack experience for 2016

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration
