Of course, Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls Kwanzaa a Fake Religion

In my experience, the mark of a mature adult is one who knows (or at least tries) to keep their mouth shut when they lack knowledge on a particular subject.

Last week, Marjorie Taylor Greene stated the following about the holiday of Kwanzaa via Twitter.

“Stop. It’s a fake religion created by a psychopath,” 

First of all, it is a holiday, not a religion. Second of all, this is classic MTG behavior. Instead of doing a little research (or a simple Google search), she opened her mouth and shit spewed out.

I am convinced that there are some members of the Republican party who says outrageous things, knowing the attention they will receive from such statements. Instead of doing the job they were hired to do, they distract the public from the fact that they are unwilling or unable to complete their legislative responsibilities. In any other profession and any other industry, they would have been fired a long time ago. But because these people are in the position they are in, they can act with impunity and still retain their office.

The only thing that makes me feel better in all of this bullshit is that one of Green’s Twitter account is permanently suspended.

P.S. Happy belated Kwanzaa to all who celebrated.

The Holidays

It’s that time of year again. The stores are advertising massive sales, the lights are on the houses and the weather has become rather chilly.

Christmas and Kwanzaa are just around the corner. We are halfway through Chanukah.

There are some, in the name of diversity and multiculturalism who believe that instead of referring to the individual holidays, we all should use the generic Happy Holidays message.

While I understand where they are coming from, I don’t quite agree with them.

If I see someone who celebrates Christmas, I say Merry Christmas.

If I see someone who celebrates Chanukah, I say Happy Chanukah.

If I see someone who celebrates Kwanzaa, I say Happy Kwanzaa.

If I see someone who has no particular religious faith, I say Happy Holidays or Happy New Year.

I believe that to foster co-existence and respect, we have to acknowledge the fact that our neighbor may celebrate a different holiday. To lump all of the holidays together out of fear that someone may feel offended does not do justice to this very multicultural country that we call home.

That being said, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. May we all enjoy this holiday season and the joys that come with it.
