Fox News host Sean Hannity noted Monday that it might be time for a new conservative third party for those who are “sick” of the Republicans that undermine conservatives.
“Is it a third party we need?” Hannity asked. “I’ve often argued no. I’m not so sure anymore.”
Hannity noted his disappointment in Republicans, who promised to repeal Obamacare but instead abandoned their efforts to trash talk other conservatives.
“I don't blame the media. I don't blame Harry Reid. I don't blame Obama,” Hannity said, blaming establishment Republicans instead for the government shutdown.
He added that principled conservatives have been harassed by the establishment wing of Republicans for remaining committed to the promises they made to their constituents.
The Fox News host criticized establishment Republicans like Rep. Peter King, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Bob Corker for declaring a war on principled conservatives, and doing the bidding of Democrats and the liberal media.
Republicans would be in a better position if they had stood by conservatives like Rep. Ted Cruz, Hannity said.
Hannity concluded his discussion by saying he doesn’t believe the country will survive with half measures, and that Republicans should be fighting for radical positive-oriented solutions. If they are unwilling to do so, Hannity noted that a third party may be necessary.
“It may be time for a new conservative party in America,” Hannity said. “I’m sick of these guys.”
