Fox News host Glenn Beck says Tuesday's grass-roots' primary victories signal the "beginning of the end" of Washington, D.C.'s entrenched political establishment, declaring on his Wednesday radio program: "Tea party . . . You have won now. You have won the day."
Beck's comments followed a string of remarkable victories by tea party candidates in primaries around the country, including Christine O'Donnell's stunning senate primary win over longtime GOP Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware.
Beck congratulated grass-roots activists on accomplishing what he called "the absolute impossible."
"You have done something that everyone said could not be done," said Beck. "You have taken the establishment against all odds, people who are just bakers and plumbers, teachers, business leaders, just average moms and dads and kids, and you have built something here . . . And [CNBC correspondent] Rick Santelli just had to say, there needs to be some sort of a tea party. And look what you've done.
"In Delaware, a guy who has been in Congress for four decades and had everything going for him, [is] done. This I believe is the seventh or eighth massive upset with the tea party," he said.
Beck also encouraged tea party activists to reach out in peace to rank-and-file Democrats and invite them to join the grass-roots conservative cause.
As for pundits who disparage O'Donnell's chances of winning in November, Beck said: "Delaware, don't you listen to them."
"She can win," the host of the 8/28 "Restoring Honor" rally said. "Because there are Democrats that want to join you, that may not agree on every little issue, but if you stand for principles, if you stand for the Constitution, if you stand for enough is enough, you can win.
"And don't you let anybody else tell you different," Beck counseled. "You just need to make sure that you always appear as who you really are. "Because they are working overtime to make sure you don't."
