Ann Coulter says she loves the tea party, but not people she believes are using the movement to line their own pockets.

"Con men and shysters are claiming to be tea partiers in order to raise money for themselves, in order to redecorate their offices, in order to put in craft beer bars," the conservative commentator said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's"Hannity." "And they are doing that by going after what they call 'establishment Republicans.'"

Coulter penned a column Wednesday defending Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell against attacks by "the anti-Mitch McConnell brigade" that she said "don't match up with the facts."

Coulter said that since the groups aren't going after Democrats, they aren't attacked by The New York Times or MSNBC.

"That's actually one way you can tell who's doing something useful on our side," she said. "You cannot pick up The New York Times or turn on MSNBC without them attacking the Koch brothers. Who do you think is hurting the left more in America – anything run by the Koch brothers, or Senate Conservatives Fund, Club for Growth, FreedomWorks?"

Coulter admitted her attacks on those groups won't earn her any kudos in conservative circles, but added, "People are claiming to be tea partiers while going after good Republicans."

People are angry at the state of the country but she focus that anger on Democrats, she said.

"That's why we need to replace Democrats with Republicans, and not just lash out at the people closest to us," she said.
