Kamala Harris Repeats Debunked Fairytale About Celebrating Kwanzaa

Kamala Harris Repeats Debunked Fairytale About Celebrating Kwanzaa

“I love you VP, I really do. But come on … you don’t really expect people to believe this, do you?”

Kamala Harris has zero self-awareness compared to pretty much everyone in politics. And that’s saying something.

Harris spewed out the same old Kwanzaa lies in a video despite people debunking them repeatedly:

HARRIS: “Growing up Kwanzaa was always a special time. We came together with generations of friends and family and neighbors. There were never enough chairs. So my sister and I and the other children would often sit on the floor and together we lit the candles of the kinara. And then the elders would talk about how Kwanzaa is a time to celebrate culture, community, and family. And they, of course, taught us about the seven principles. My favorite principle was always the second — Kujichagulia. Self determination, the power to design your own life and determine your own future. And it is a deeply American principle, one that guides me every day as vice president.”

I wonder if she celebrated it in college as she smoked weed while listening to Tupac and Snoop.

Fast facts:

  • Harris was born in 1964, two years before the invention of Kwanzaa in 1966.
  • Harris is Indian and Jamaican. Her parents are not African.
  • Harris basically grew up in Canada.
  • It took over a decade for Kwanzaa to become popular.
  • Also, why brag about a “holiday” invented by a violent felon?

2020 Flashback time!

In 2020, the vice president-elect said:

You know, my sister and I, we grew up celebrating Kwanzaa. Every year our family would – and our extended family, we would gather around, across multiple generations, and we’d tell stories. The kids would sit on the carpet and the elders would sit on chairs, and we would light the candles, and of course afterwards have a beautiful meal. And, of course, there was always the discussion of the seven principles. And my favorite, I have to tell you, was always the one about self-determination, kujichagulia.

And, you know, essentially it’s about be and do. Be the person you want to be and do the things you want to do and do the things that need to be done. It’s about not letting anyone write our future for us, but instead going out and writing it for ourselves. And that principle motivates me today, as we seek to confront the challenges facing our country and to build a brighter future for all Americans. So, to everyone who is celebrating, Happy Kwanzaa from our family to yours.

2021 Flashback Time!

Kamala Harris repeated the same lies in 2021 but without a video.

2022 Reactions

The reactions to the new video were similar to the ones in 2020 and 2021.

They sat around and told stories about what her ancestors stole from the slaves that they owned…..their fweedom.

    Milhouse in reply to Paul. | December 26, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Her ancestors on her father’s side were primarily slaves — and, like most descendants of slaves, also their owners. That kind of goes with the condition of slavery.

      Vladtheimp in reply to Milhouse. | December 26, 2022 at 7:35 pm

      Uhh, so that explains her multiple lies on the subject of the article?

      Can you define ‘primarily slaves?’ Seems some were slave holders, like most Democrats.

      Thanks for the post-Christmas grins!

        Milhouse in reply to Vladtheimp. | December 26, 2022 at 7:58 pm

        What lies has she told on the subject of the article? She’s lied about many things, but as far as I can tell not about this.

        Her father’s descent is primarily from slaves in exactly the same way as most black Americans’ is. And like almost all black Americans, and for that matter like almost all descendants of slaves anywhere, she is also descended of those slaves’ owners. That’s generally how slavery works.

      Eric R. in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2022 at 6:02 am

      Slavery was banned in the British Empire well before it was banned in the USA. Also, they did not have Jim Crow type laws because whites were few in number, and blacks were needed to fill civil service position, including being police.

      Come on, Milhouse, you know this.

        Milhouse in reply to Eric R.. | December 27, 2022 at 3:20 pm

        And this is relevant how? Yes, it ended in Jamaica a few decades earlier than in the USA; how is that relevant? It’s still the case that the entire black population of Jamaica was brought there as slaves, and lived as slaves, under harsher conditions than slaves did in the southern USA, And it’s the case that over time the black population acquired a certain measure of white ancestry in exactly the same way that it happened in the USA. Kamala Harris is descended in part from her black ancestors’ owners, exactly as is the case with most black people in the USA.

      “That kind of goes with the condition of slavery.” Which, until yesterday, was part of the condition of humanity. All of which illustrates my point… the left wants to ‘cancel’ any ‘old white guy’ who was a slave owner. Yet they’ll elect a slave owner’s descendent to the 2nd most powerful position on earth? Why? Because she’s part black? She gets to benefit from the ‘victim’ part of her ancestry yet she doesn’t have to suffer the consequences of the ‘victimizer’ part of her ancestry? The hypocrisy is rank. Imagine the shit-show they’ll unleash if they go down the reparations path.

        Milhouse in reply to Paul. | December 28, 2022 at 3:56 pm

        No. She is a slave-owner’s descendant only the exact same way that just about every descendant of slaves is. Her ancestry on her father’s side is the same as that of most black Americans.

      Alastor in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2022 at 9:17 pm

      Sillier-than-usual Milhouse !

      Over the last 2 millennia or more, with the changing prosperity of pretty much all human cultures. I doubt if anyone can document *any* current human who doesn’t have slaves in their ancestry …

      Prior to the 1600s, slavery, like alcohol, was pretty much part of each human culture – the strong who managed to capture the weak made slaves of them …

      If you know of any well-documented studies of successful historical cultures which are still around which didn’t own slaves, I would appreciate the opportunity to learn about it/them …

      Can you tell us about any such culture ?

        Milhouse in reply to Alastor. | December 28, 2022 at 1:51 am

        For crying out loud, how is ANY of that in ANY way relevant to the topic? Either you are such an idiot that you have no idea what is being discussed, or you are deliberately dragging a flaming crimson herring across the path, i.e. a fancy form of lying.

    “their fweedom.”
    Fun fact: Before Kamala’s family celebrated it, it was called “Kranzaa.”

My guess is that she “celebrated Kwanzaa like Shirley Q. Liquor and her child’un celebrate it,

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Kwanzaa+like+Shirley+Q.+Liquor#fpstate=ive&vld=cid:7d430661,vid:JV04rj5QCzU

Kwanzaa was a forward-looking invention of the diversity industry to celebrate color blocs, color quotas, and affirmative discrimination. Takes us back to South Africa, where Mandela’s Xhosa are still at war with the indigenous Zulu and native populations. 50 shades of a “Palestinian” history an cause that sustains diversity, division, and adversity.

Maybe she thinks Brandon will like her better if she becomes more of a fabulist?

SIgh. We went into this the first time she said it, and I showed how she was quite likely telling the truth. Yes, Kwanzaa was invented when she was a baby, but her parents are very likely to have adopted it immediately. They were both acolytes of the inventor, so they would have started celebrating it as soon as he came up with the idea. Kamala would have grown up with it, not remembering a time when it didn’t exist.

And they may well have roped their parents into visiting their home and celebrating it with them. She would have had no idea they didn’t celebrate at home. For that matter they may even have genuinely bought into it and celebrated it at home too.

Harris is Indian and Jamaican. Her parents are not African.

Her father is exactly as African as most black Americans are. His ancestry is basically the same as theirs. Mostly West African slaves, with a certain percentage of white slaveowners.

Harris basically grew up in Canada.

First of all, her early childhood, when such memories are created, was in the USA. Second, there’s nothing to say that her mother didn’t keep celebrating it in Canada. It’s not as if she gave up her Marxist beliefs when she got divorced.

The bottom like is that Kamala Harris, like Barack 0bama, and like Bill DeBlasio, was raised by communists and thus comes by it honestly.

    Eric R. in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2022 at 6:04 am

    If this is the case, then her parents could have backed her up on this when she first flubbed it. IIRC, isn’t at least her Jamaican father still alive?

    In fact, my understanding is that he is not as far to the left as her.

      Milhouse in reply to Eric R.. | December 27, 2022 at 3:22 pm

      Why would they feel any need to “back her up”? Who challenged it, outside a few right-wing blogs that they have reason to be aware of?

      Milhouse in reply to Eric R.. | December 27, 2022 at 3:23 pm

      Her father was a devoted follower of the guy who invented Kwanzaa in the first place. I doubt he’s less left-wing than she is.

    Suburban Farm Guy in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2022 at 8:34 am

    Hilarious that you expend so much intellectual firepower imagining that this lying sack of Marxist bullshit has even a milligram of integrity. Why don’t you guys just get a room…

      Hilarious that you seem to need to go to such lengths just to accuse her of lying on the one of the few occasions when she clearly isn’t. Aren’t there enough legitimate things you can criticize her for?

O Kwanzaa tree O Kwanzaa tree …
How phony are your branches …
O Kwanzaa tree O Kwanzaa tree …
How phony are your branches …

kwanzaa ? please–another outright fraud like “hands up, don’t shoot” or “1619 Project” or “blm” –lord

    Milhouse in reply to texansamurai. | December 27, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Fraud? Only if you pretend it’s some ancient tradition. If you accept that it’s a recent invention, then it’s not fraudulent, just stupid.

I thought it was called “Schwanza”? A bottle of Grey Goose makes the world right!

Having worked in black neighborhoods in NY, FL and GA I can assure you almost no one celebrates Kwanza.

And now we have Juneteenth. Let’s sit back and see how many other racially repressed, traditional Black celebrations arise to fill the holiday calendar. Justice won’t be done until they number 365 national holidays granting a full paid day off from work to Blacks, but not to whites. Asians and Indians get half days.

    henrybowman in reply to E Howard Hunt. | December 27, 2022 at 9:53 am

    They’re not really interested in celebrating them. They’re just interesting in pushing our traditional holidays off the calendar with them.

    Juneteenth is a legitimate holiday — in Texas. It has no relevance to the other 49 states.

      henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2022 at 10:36 pm

      Juneteenth doesn’t even celebrate the day slavery ended in Texas. It celebrates the day somebody found out about slavery having ended in Texas.
      Makes about as much sense as celebrating VJ day on the day the last isolated Japanese soldier was found on whichever tiny Pacific island.
      Assuming we’ve found ’em all yet.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | December 28, 2022 at 1:54 am

        Slavery can’t have ended before anyone knew about it. The order may have been drafted, but it had no consequences until it was announced.

          markm in reply to Milhouse. | January 2, 2023 at 9:45 am

          And there were no consequences in most of Texas on the day it was announced in Galveston, let alone in any other state.
