Liz in San Diego Responds to Jim from Oklahoma

After the call from Jim in Oklahoma, with his ridiculous though eerie claims that he was staging a coup to overthrow the government, Liz from San Diego called the show to respond (after several other callers chimed in first).

As I stated in the post about Jim, I think he's a coward and an idiot, and I do not believe he's organizing 200 Oklahomans to take over the government. The point of posting the video was to show the virulent racism and how it's being stoked. Liz then gives us a cautionary tale for those who would dismiss Jim's views easily: Her own mother has become of of these birther/912er/Tea Party types and she too talks of overthrowing the government. Liz became quite emotional by the end of the conversation.
