Glenn Beck was irate on his show. He let the Republican Party have it.
"The Republican Party, I've made my decision," said Glenn Beck. "I am out! I'm out! I am not a Republican. I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I am out! I highly recommend, run from the Republican Party. They are not good and you see it now. All this stuff that they ran and they said they were doing all these great things. And they were going to stand against Obamacare and everything else and legal immigration, set us up. Enough is enough. They are torpedoing the Constitution and they are doing so knowingly. They are 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 am done with them."

It should come as no surprise to long time listeners that Glenn is fed up with the Republican party as it exists in Washington, DC. He’s been outspoken in his criticism of the establishment’s leadership, including John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham. Meanwhile, he’s watched those same establishment politicians try to destroy passionate conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. So today on radio he made it crystal clear that he is done with the Republican Party.
“When we first started the 9/12 Project and everything else, we said stay in the Republican party. Change it from the inside. Then we saw now how rotted the Republican is. There’s no saving it. Don’t give another dime to the Republican party. We tried to do it from the inside. They are knifing us from the inside,” Glenn said.
In other words, the Republicans are not enough to the right for Glenn Beck and his ilk. Really? If it wouldn't hurt so many people, it would be great to give these folks the country they claim to want for a couple years. They would become card-carrying liberals quickly thereafter.
