Talk radio host Glenn Beck declared that the Republican Party is beyond saving in a brief monologue during his show Wednesday.
Beck said that the party’s policy failures on big issues like immigration and establishment efforts to undermine reformers like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee have made him decide not to donate any money to the GOP. Even further, he suggests his listeners “run” away from Republicans:
The Republican Party–I’ve made my decision; I’m out. I’m out. I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out. I highly recommend–run from the Republican Party. They are not good. And you see it now.
They ran and they said they were doing all of these great things and they were going to stand against Obamacare and everything else and illegal immigration–they set us up.
“They set us up. Enough is enough. They’re torpedoing the Constitution and they’re doing it knowingly. They’re taking on people like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and they are torpedoing them–knowingly. And these guys are standing for the Constitution.
So I’m done with them. Four years ago, I was with them. Four years ago, I said work from the inside: let’s change it. Let’s get new guys in there. It’s too late.
Beck is tied with Mark Levin as the fourth largest talk radio show in America, according to Talkers.com, with an estimated 7 million listeners each week.
