The Nation‘s Washington Editor Chris Hayes visits Countdown with Keith Olbermann to discuss some of the recent “treasonous rhetoric from the right.” Olbermann takes on John L. Perry who recently wrote a column for Newsmax.com which claims that Obama’s radical administration is inviting some sort of bloodless coup to overthrow the government. More optimistic, Hayes sees the silver lining in this controversy, pointing out that the website’s prompt removal of the column shows some sort of remorse. Both agree though, that this language could possibly provoke more violent action and should not be encouraged or accepted.
