Tea Party advocates have a message for liberal loudmouth Keith Olbermann: Put up or shut up.
After Olbermann delivered one of his bombastic attacks on the Tea Party movement, calling it an all -white group that lacks diversity, the Dallas Tea Party posted a YouTube video that challenges the MSNBC news/entertainment host to show up at a rally this weekend and check out the group himself.
“Something tells me you’ve never been to a tea party,” one group activist says to Olbermann in the video. “We think you need to get out of your bubble.”
The rebuttal came after Olbermann asked “how many black faces to you see at these (tea party) events? Why are you surrounded by the largest crowd you will ever again see in your life that consists nothing but people who look exactly like you?”
Responds the Tea Party: “Well, Keith we see a whole lot more at our events than we see at MSNBC.” The video points out that the cable “news” network’s lineup of anchors is primarily white.
Say a Tea Party-goer in the video: “So now you’ve been invited to the one-year anniversary of tea party movement at Dallas City Hall Feb. 27 from noon to 2 o’clock. If you don’t show, have you no shame sir?”
Olbermann admits the MSNBC lineup is whitebread but claims minority hosts have had shows in the past and says he frequently has minority commentators on his show.
