UPDATED: Conservatives have had enough: #DefundTheGOP spreads across Twitter

Not long after sharing the story of House Speaker John Boehner working behind-the-scenes with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to keep Congress’s Obamacare exemptions, Glenn hit his breaking point on radio this morning. For a while, Glenn has said that he is done with the progressives in the GOP, but today he decided it’s time to get these guys out of the party. And he knows the only way to get them out is to cut off their funding.

Glenn created a hash tag to kick start his movement to rid conservatives of their horrible leadership: #DefundTheGOP.

“I guarantee you, John Boehner would step down today, if the big donors would actually come to the plate today and say, ‘I’ve given my last dime to the Republican Party until John Boehner steps down – not as speaker of the house – but resigns. Until that happens, you don’t get a dime from me. Not one dime from me,’” Glenn said. “If everybody who has ever given any money would call their congressman and call GOP Headquarters and say, ‘Don’t you ever ask me for a dime. Don’t you ever send me an email. Don’t you do it.’ There’s step one: #DefundTheGOP.”

Well, a lot of people listening to Glenn seemed to agree with him, and they took to Twitter to make their opinions known and to send a message to the leadership of the Republican Party.

    i dont think you really know what ‘defund the GOP’ means. obviously that doesnt mean he is back in. maybe you should read the story brah. “Glenn has said that he is done with the progressives in the GOP, but today he decided it’s time to get these guys out of the party” that doesnt sound like backing

    Just in time for the election.. how about a defunding of both parties.. and the government in general.. we can’t afford to pay, if we are broke.. and I’m pretty sure we are broke. Stop paying either bunch of cronies, misfits, unthinkers, traitors, liars, and basic “don’t know workers” and wouldn’t know work if it runs up and spits on me, can’t work anyway.. don’t now how to. That bunch.. and right now… it looks to me that there is a headlong rush to join in that group. Fire ‘em all. Replace them with someone that has a grip on reality, can think logically, and responsibly.

    Come on Glenn… don’t defund them… PRIMARY them.  Let’s focus on getting the old guard out and take over the Republican party.  Otherwise we’re handing the next election over to the Democrats.

    The Problem is that more Conservatives need to make their voices heard. So many Conservatives remain in the shadows and they need to come forward. We need them to contact the Speaker of The House and let him know that we need Obamacare defunded.

    Defund and give all sides the boot, with the sole exception of ones who will abide by the Constitution and do the will of the people. We have a few of them, the rest, including the RINO’s, can be dispensed with.

    More than just Boehner needs to be informed, we need to do this with all state Rep’s and Senators. We have been completely betrayed, as expected, by the Rino’s, and its time for them and the Democrats to go into the night.

    I don’t know if I trust anything that comes out of Reid’s office.  He may have phonied all this up just to get rid of Boehner. It’s not easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys anymore, except for the obvious ones.  Maybe we should just wipe the slate clean, and get new blood in there.  But then again, the devil you know….as they say.  It’s all just disgusting and heartbreaking for our beautiful country.

    Conservative  Way  If you give a man a fish
    you will feed him for a  day. If you teach a man to fish you
    feed him for a  lifetime! 

    Democrat Way: If you
    give  a man hope of getting a job, he will vote Democrat for a  year! If
    you give a man a welfare check, a free cell phone,  free internet, food
    stamps, section 8 housing, free  contraceptives, ninety-nine
    weeks of unemployment, free  health care and free medicine… He
    will vote Democrat the  rest of his life and several more times after he’s
    dead.

    I went online and confirmed this story, then wrote to the GOP telling them that until Boehner is gone, I’ll never contribute again.   Period.  And I used to be the state and local party communications director here in Nevada.

    Defund the GOP? Please. There seems to be a problem with that idea: without “funding,” who gets elected in the next elections? This is very short-sighted thinking.

    As I have been saying all along, changing the GOP from within is a hoax. These dolts are too well entrenched to think one election will make that big of a difference or even “defunding” them. There are far too many Republicans who hold on to the same ideas that got them into this mess in the first place.  (not just the politicians)

    It’s time to go back to following the Constitution and MOST of the GOP are no better than Democraps. I guess all of you are free to do as you please, but until you realize these facts, nothing is going to change. I guess you free to be GOP zombies, but I will stay Libertarian. You know, the ONLY party that believes in the Constitution.

    All those who voted for funding for Obamacare must go. It’s that simple.
    Then replace everyone with likeminded Ted Cruz.

    Who are these so called conservatives behind ‘DefundtheGOP’  , because that is exackly what the democrat statist party is saying and more ..

    John Boehner passed the bill that would require the Congress to obey the same rules that all of Us has to with the oppressive health law , but the Democrat senators voted No on that bill .

    Leftist Harry Reid released these emails to mock John Boehner and get the reaction that he is getting from the so called DefundtheGOP crowd . Former axis power member of the 40s leftist George Soros also wants to DefundtheGOP ..

    There are NO republicans that supported or funded Obamacare (some call Nationalized health care or BillClinton care , W.Wilsoncare , Progressive DNC care , etc ) .
    The leftist democrat strategists to win in 2014 is to drum up the false or phony notion that some republicans secretely support the oppressive nationalized health bill (some call Obamacare) to divide republicans and anger their voters ..

    This strategy seems to be winning in VA as the indepedant 3rd party candidate has taken away 7 points from the republican governor candidate (CNN was bragging about this earlier this month) .

    really? bush-cheney had the biggest entitlement program with their Medicaid/medicare program, etc…  and the military empire is also a form of entitlements – saying you will provide for security and free weapons to hundreds of countries across the world.

    there is only the rnc/dnc way – one way.  conservatives are within rnc/dnc.  3rd parties/libertarians/constitution party is the different way.

  • jen

    conservative heroes like michelle Bachmann revoted Boehner in.  so if you want change, then you better go after your conservative heroes to stop lying and talking big and then doing the opposite like michelle Bachmann.

  • jen

    that is dumb to contribute in the first place. Boehner is not the issue.  Boehner is a rnc puppet and rnc will put someonelse in place that will carry out their orders, whether it is Boehner or not. 

    republican party/rnc is the problem, but the cowards keep with the rnc.  rnc says Boehner, so conservatives then by association are also pro-Boehner.

    Uh, Glenn…  Where did this “info” come from?  From Harry Reid’s office??  Be very careful.  This one stinks to high heck.  Beware lest you fall victim to a black flag (“false flag”) op.

  • Watch it

    Reid’s office leaked this intentionally to cause more infighting in the Republican ranks. Their hopes are that the Republican party will blow up, thus splitting the vote of Conservatives in 2014 and 2016. Result? A guaranteed win for the Socialist Democrats in Congress and the White House. With nothing in their way, we will become a true Socialist state, and the country will be changed forever.

    I have said this for some time now. We need a third political party. I have voted for the lessor of two evils for the last time. The last time, I voted against Obama, even though I did not like Romney for President. I will NEVER vote like that again. I will vote for the candidate that most represents my beliefs.

     bush is a progressive like the current adminstration just a little bit more moralistic but basically the same why because instead of declaring war on islam and making those laws to fight that he made it general so conservatives libertarians and constitutionalists to be monitored marxists and muslims are the most dangerous groups and both share government power now and been a shadowy presence since the 30′s Joe McCarthy was right

    As a liberal I have to offer my support of this effort. Go Beck! Get rid of Boehner and put Louie Gohmert in his place. Gohmert for Speaker! Hell, why not Gohmert / Beck for Pres/VP 2016!  Make Gohmert the face of the Republican Party and you guys will be ascendant for generations. Trust me. :-)

  • Jim ciaravino

     I understand what Bush was and agree, but I feel he was a man of much more principle than BHO is by a far margin, unfortunately he just got lost in the arena of ideas and free market system, but at least he took his medicine with dignity and grace rather than what is going on now. BHO refuses to admit that the ACA is not what the American people wanted in terms of health care and insurance, he feels as if this puts him in the company of MLK or Kennedy  which is so far from the truth it’s ridiculous. I don’t know exactly how but a major change needs to come to the federal government. I think Cruz and Paul are a good start but not nearly enough.
    Boehner has to step away, period. We need to separate the sheep from the goats. To many politicians are about exalting themselves than humbling themselves

    So who is Glenn and his growing ‘defund’ army proposing to fund to replace these Rinos?  I usually respect Glenn’s opinion but when he just whines and doesn’t propose a solution it gets old.

    Glenn – if you know the answers – tell us!!  If not then please stop knocking the only group remotely stopping Obama, Ried and Pelosi from turning America into Cuba or some other socialist country.

    I won’t defend Boehner – but put up some answers Glenn and stop just whining.
