Folks, you can’t make this stuff up. On Thursday the GOP’s official Twitter account tweeted Kwanzaa wishes to all of its members that celebrate the holiday.
Happy Kwanzaa! Wishing those celebrating a joyous time with loved ones and a time of meaningful reflection ahead of the New Year.

And of course, it wasn’t received too well:
.@GOP Happy Kwanzaa? No one’s celebrated that since Rosa Parks ended racism.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the GOP’s Black History Month tweets!
