Rush Limbaugh–America’s Conservative Voice since 1988–Dead at 70

Rush Limbaugh Dead

My mother was crying when she called me with the sad, sad news: radio legend Rush Limbaugh has died. 

Conservatives around the country are buzzing about the death of one of their biggest advocates. Rush was a political force to be reckoned with long before Donald Trump entered politics.

The news was not a shock to most as “The Great One” announced back in January of 2020 that he had been diagnosed with advanced Stage 4 lung cancer. Since then, Rush continued doing what he loved–talking on the radio about politics from a conservative perspective.

Soon after announcing his illness, Rush attended the State of the Union address on Feb. 4, 2020 and was shocked when Melania Trump pulled a Presidential Medal of Freedom out of her pocket and place the honor around his neck. Rush was overwhelmed with emotion, so much so that the bombastic personality was speechless. “Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” said President Trump with a smile.

Over the past year, Rush occasionally spoke about his health, giving listeners updates that were honest and sometimes heartbreaking.

In his final radio broadcast of 2020, Rush thanked listeners for their love and support and shared how he had outlived his prognosis: “I wasn’t expected to be alive today,” Rush said. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October, and then November, and then December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I’m feeling pretty good today.”

As would be expected in today’s polarized nation, the Right is paying their respects on social media with honor and class. While the ugly Left is celebrating  with mean and nasty tweets.

Let’s first take a look at some tweets from conservative politicians and media figures:

 

Meanwhile, evil leftists are mocking and cheering Rush’s passing. They have even started a horrible trending hashtag that will not be promoted here.

Just look at some of the toxicity and hate being spewed over on Twitter:

(Leftists are showing their true nature today. Sickening.)

Today, America lost a national treasure.

Rest in Peace, El Rushbo.
