Okay, I was going a bit crazy here...I like some of the writings and Christian viewpoints Coulter espouses in her work -- but the divisiveness is not necessary.
I don't love Ann Coulter. And now that Ann Coulter has dissed the so-called African-American holiday called Kwanzaa, calling it "a lunatic blend of schmaltzy '60s rhetoric, black racism and Marxism," I don't love Ann Coulter all the more for being a white woman bold enough to diss a Kwanzaa celebration in a manner that I always thought but dare not spoke of.
I get the Kwanzaa cards in the mail around Christmastime and never appreciate the attention they take away from the birth of Jesus. Kwanzaa supporters will say it's all complimentary, but like Ann Coulter writes, I believe we've been duped into giving credence to some fake fight-the-power holiday.
Kwanzaa kinda reminds me of the fake red-black-and-green-Africa-on-a-leather-medallion sporting brothers who went to Florida A & M University with me, the kind who chided me for reading Cosmo -- a "white girls" magazine, after all, they'd say, as they summarily dissed their Nubian queens to the high heavens.
They were false facades to an ideal, not the real thing itself. And Ann Coulter has now exposed the window dressing of Kwanzaa for what it really is: A way to detract from Christ's birthday celebration, with its supposed worthy community principals shrouded in African (or at least African-sounding) names.
Bah humbug to Kwanzaa. Ann Coulter just exposed what I'd been thinking for years. Coulter is a smart lady who doesn't apologize for being intelligent and conservative and sexy and alluring while she blows the liberals out the water with their theories of "no religion" and such.
I stood in Borders blown away by Ann Coulter's on-point observations in Godless: The Church of Liberalism. While I admit that Ann Coulter's comments dissing the most prominent 9/11 widows were over the top, I'm right in line with Coulter on this Kwanzaa thing.
And I love the way Ann Coulter closes her recent article criticizing Kwanzaa with this Bible verse: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).
That's what I'm saying, Ann...
