Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Tuesday compared Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump to “Rules for Radicals” author Saul Alinsky.

“He is Saul Alinsky,” Mr. Beck said, the Washington Examiner reported. “[Mr. Trump] will isolate and polarize you, and he will take you out.”

Conservatives have long criticized Alinsky’s 1971 book “Rules for Radicals,” a progressive guide for community organizers to inspire radical cultural revolution.

“He is spending money with tea party groups and churches and news websites to own them,” Mr. Beck said of Mr. Trump.

He warned that the Republican establishment’s efforts to alienate the billionaire could inspire him to launch a third-party bid.

“[The GOP] is making themselves a horrible, horrible bed [if they] run campaigns against him,” Mr. Beck said.

“What are the odds that he is a spoiler?” he asked. “What are the odds that he got into this because he’s friends with the Clintons and he’ll get massive payback?

“Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton gets in because he ran third-party. Do you know the favor they’re going to owe him?”
