Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is calling Kwanzaa a “fake religion created by a psychopath.”
Taylor Greene replied to a tweet from College Republicans wishing a happy holiday to those who celebrate Kwanzaa.
It’s a fake religion created by a psychopath.
You aren’t bringing in new voters, you are turning them away.
People are tired of pandering and BS.”
Greene incorrectly called Kwanzaa a religion, and failed to recognize her GOP counterparts that have previously offered holiday greetings to those who celebrate it.
Former President Donald Trump once issued a statement, saying: “Let us celebrate during this joyous time the richness of the past and look with hope toward a brighter future. As families and friends join to light the Kinara, Melania and I extend our warmest wishes for a joyful holiday season and a prosperous year to come.”
Kwanzaa is a cultural holiday not a religious or a political holiday, and was created by educator Dr. Maulana Karenga in the mid-1960’s during the Civil Rights Movement. The College Republicans did not respond to Greene, but retweeted other happy Kwanzaa tweets, while Greene’s tweet was challenged.
