Glenn Beck may have soared to conservative fame by furthering a tea party message — but now, he says, it’s time to quit using that tea party label.


“Because that [label] has been so maligned,” he said, during a recent discussion on Blaze TV.

He told his audience that he was talking with a congressman recently, and the lawmaker credited the Tea Party Patriots for political successes — and Mr. Beck said, “Stop,” he said, Mediaite reported.

“Find a new way to say Tea Party Patriots, please, because that has been so maligned that people stop hearing you now,” Mr. Beck said in the Blaze TV clip. “We’ve got to find a new label — they’re shape shifters. You have to constantly shift with them.”

Mr. Beck said he wasn’t “talking about truth,” but rather “language and names and labels.”

He said to his audience: “You stand here with the truth, but you understand, they’re going to continually shift their language.”
