Glenn Beck called on conservatives to leave the Republican Party today, declaring on his radio program that Ted Cruz’s exit from the presidential primary means that the Tea Party movement has officially lost the war for the GOP. Donald Trump’s candidacy, he warned, will make the party so toxic that no Republican will be elected to the White House ever again.
Beck said that he is hearing from Tea Party members of Congress that life is now “literally living hell” as establishment Republicans prepare to pay them back for all the headaches they have caused the party in recent years.
“They’re going to kill the Tea Party people,” Beck said, declaring that the Tea Party had its chance to defeat the Republican establishment by electing Cruz, but instead just “lost the war.”
“If you think now that somebody is going to ride in on a white horse and we’re going to save the Constitution, that is over,” he stated. “You shot the guy on the top of the horse.”
As such, Beck declared that “conservatives need to run from the Republican Party as fast as you can” because with Trump as the face of the GOP, “you will never see a Republican win again.”
“It is time to step away from the GOP,” Beck proclaimed. “If you don’t, you will be painted as one of them. I’m not one of them. I’m not part of Donald Trump. Not part of it and I want to cry that out from top of the mountains. I am not part of that because you will never be considered as having any kind of viable solution if you stand next to him. Never. Because Tinfoil Hat Don is crazy.”
