Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instantly created a new holiday in a speech to members of the U.S. House, but is getting mocked for her mental flub.
She wished people to have a “happy Shwanza.”
Which wasn’t a known holiday before she announced it.
Here she is:
Just the News explained she flubbed “Kwanzaa.”
“I yield back the balance of my time and wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe New Year. Happy holidays, merry Christmas, happy Shwanza, happy Hanukkah. Whatever it is you celebrate, be safe,” the Democrat told Congress.
Mark Levin, a radio talk show host, said, “Truth be told, Pelosi’s an idiot with power.”
And another commenter on social media pointed out, “She forgot Festivus,” referencing a famous made-up holiday on TV’s “Seinfeld.”

Conservative strategist Greg Price posted on social media a picture of Pelosi kneeling while wearing an African-style scarf, and said, “Happy Shwanza to all and to all a good night.”
Britannica explains Kwanzaa is the creation of Maulana Karenga, an activist in Afrocentrism who thought it up.
He modified a Swahili phrase to come up with the name and it’s recognized after Christmas. There are various symbols of the festivities such as fruits, vegetables and nuts, a straw mat, a candleholder, ears of corn, gifts, a communal cup and seven candles.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
