Glenn Beck has grown steadily more frustrated with establishment Republicans unwilling to stand for conservative values, and on Tuesday he revealed yet another reason to be outraged. Beck said he was informed by an anonymous source that during a closed-door meeting, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell insinuated that anyone working with the Senate Conservatives Fund or FreedomWorks is basically a “traitor” to the GOP.
Beck made it clear that McConnell did not actually use the word “traitor,” “but that’s what everybody heard.” McConnell also reportedly said that these two groups in particular are “trying to destroy the Republican party,” and Beck brought up the words of another Republican senator who he has so far not been able to identify. This is a rough idea of what this second senator said, according to Beck.
“FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund worked hard to unseat me, and I want you to be very clear on this. If any of you take a dollar from either FreedomWorks or the Senate Conservatives Fund, you’re an enemy of mine.”
