Nevertheless, we must challenge the residual ignorance that blankets the remaining 650,000 viewers MSNBC receives per day.
Kudos to the Dallas Tea Party Organization for challenging Keith Olberman and MSNBC to look at the lack of diversity in their own media outlet.
This repudiation of Olbermann’s statements has been a long time coming. I have had it with the mainstream media pretending that people of color in the Tea Parties do not exist. The same assumption is made concerning the Republican Party as a whole. African Americans that choose conservatism are marginalized to salt and pepper on an iceberg sized steak. We are characterized as mere tokens used as black up.
Will Olberman show? Of course not. He may risk some violence from all of the angry gun toting racist like Dallas Latina conservative, Katrina Pierson or Alfonzo Rachel (aka ZoNation)- an African American Republican.
Even the above examples do not account for all of the diversity within the Republican Party.
There are women, physically challenged persons, Asians, Jews, gays and lesbians all in the Republican Party.
Any person who attempts to prove this to the mainstream media- is quickly shut down, marginalized, invalidated, and branded as “stoopid”.
Republican National Committee Chairman, Michael Steel is constantly belittled as someone who “should thank Barack Obama for his job”. Liberals believe had it not been for Obama paving the way in the struggle for the brutha, Michael Steel would not have a career, let alone have been selected as RNC chairman. MSNBC never reported that Steele was not the only African American on the RNC ballot. They never mentioned that Steele was once the Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, a FOX NEWS contributor, a former GOP senatorial candidate, and quite active in the Republican Party BEFORE OBAMA WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT.
To assume that Michael Steele was only elected as RNC chair because he was black is sort of racist isn’t it? How would MSNBC like it if we said that Rachel Maddow was the token lesbian?
MSNBC will never interview this man:
MSNBC will never send reporters to cover this event:
The Dallas Tea Party Organization is awaiting your reply Mr. Olbermann. Or will you make the entire Tea Party, The Worse Person of the Week simply for extending you an invitation? I am betting that somehow Mr. Olbermann will find the underpinnings of racism within the video. It will be akin to the snuff film of the decade. Yeah, that’s it Katrina Pierson was forced to be in the video because her family was being held hostage somewhere in an Atlanta peach orchard by Rush Limbaugh.
