Dallas Tea Party Calls Olbermann, Matthews, Schultz and Ratigan Racists

July 16th, 2010 12:31 PM

The Dallas Tea Party on Thursday accused MSNBC hosts Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, and Dylan Ratigan of racism.

Since January 20, 2009, all four of these men have criticized Barack Obama for one reason or another.

As MSNBC has been one of the strongest proponents of the despicable concept that anyone critical of this president must be a racist, DTP's founder Phillip Dennis believes the same should be true for that network's employees.

With this in mind, the DTP has created a marvelous video illustrating the point (video follows with commentary):

According to Dennis, the idea for this video came after Obama's speech to the nation on June 15 concerning the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Readers are reminded that numerous media members actually expressed disappointment with the President in the days that followed.

Most amusing, as NewsBusters reported on June 27, the woman that could be credited with starting the "Tea Partiers are all racists" theme, Janeane Garofalo, herself criticized Obama thereby making HER a racist.

To give you an idea of just how aggressively MSNBC has promoted the idea that anyone that's critical of this President must be so because of the color of his skin, here are some NewsBusters reports on this matter since Obama was inaugurated:

In Dennis's view, it follows that if Tea Partiers, town hall meeting attendees, Fox News hosts, and conservative talkers like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are racists for criticizing Obama, so too must anyone that expresses disappointment with this president.  

Makes you wonder when the NAACP is going to issue a resolution against MSNBC.
