I hesitate to give too much attention to Wisconsin's wingnuttiest wingnut, State Senator Glenn Grothman, but this press release from his office is just, well...just read it.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 28, 2012Yes, it's real. Sen. Grothman is one of the few Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature who will regularly do interviews with media outlets that are left of Fox News. Granted, the interviews are often quite bizarre, and most of his "facts" are beyond wrong, but Sen. Grothman is sincere in his beliefs. Dangerously sincere.

Why Must We Still Hear About Kwanzaa?
Madison: Why are hard-core left wingers still trying to talk about Kwanzaa - the supposed African-American holiday celebration between Christmas and New Year’s?
As has been well publicized, Kwanzaa is not some African or African-American tradition. It was invented in 1966 by Ron Karenga, a 1960s radical leader and founder of something called the "US Organization". This group, often referred to as the "United Slaves" is even more radical than the Black Panthers. The United Slaves killed two Black Panther members and Karenga himself wound up going to prison for assaulting some of his own members. Karenga was a racist and didn't like the idea that Christ died for all of our sins, so he felt blacks should have their own holiday - hence, Kwanzaa.
Of course, almost no black people today care about Kwanzaa - just white left-wingers who try to shove this down black people's throats in an effort to divide Americans. Irresponsible public school districts such as Green Bay and Madison (and who knows how many others, see links below) try to tell a new generation that blacks have a separate holiday than Christians. Waring Fincke, left-wing West Bend lawyer and vice chair of the Washington County Democratic Party, encouraged people to learn more about Kwanzaa in a column in July. Fortunately, almost all black people ignore Waring Fincke and his ilk and their efforts to divide Americans.
But why do they do it? They don't like America and seek to destroy it by pretending that its values as expressed in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution, don't apply to everyone. Mainstream Americans must be more outspoken on this issue. It's time it's slapped down once and for all. With tens of millions of honorable black Americans in our country's past, we should not let a violent nut like Karenga speak for them. (By the way, after getting out of prison he was hired as a professor at California State Long Beach. When are we going to stop funding left wing nuts at our public universities?) The churches ought to be particularly appalled since Karenga thought Christmas was a white religion and was trying to draw black people from it. Be on the lookout if a K-12 or college teacher tries to tell your children or grandchildren it's a real holiday.
