If there is one thing that death will prove to the living, it is how some people really feel about certain people and things.
I remember when my mother died, there were some folks that to this day I do not speak to solely because of the way they mishandled their response to me when my mother died.
Now, what the hell ever happened to just leave someone alone instead of using someone’s death as a way of getting back at someone without them being able to respond…
The conservative world will never be the same. Icon Rush Limbaugh has died of lung cancer at the age of 70.
Babe Ruth saved baseball not by inventing the game but by making it larger than life. Rush Limbaugh did not invent talk radio, he shaped it in a way that people became faithful listeners for decades. He entertained over 20 million people every day for 33 years including a short-lived television show.
When people had questions to ask, Rush was who they went to for answers. He was a wellspring of knowledge. For over three decades liberals tried to find their own Rush Limbaugh including Air America. They all failed miserably. That’s because Rush was one of a kind and we will not see the likes of him for a very long time. The world has lost a prince and a gentleman today and conservatives have lost their greatest hero.
Naturally the left are rejoicing over his death. But they couldn’t defeat him in life and they sure as hell aren’t going to beat him in death. Over 600 stations carried the Rush Limbaugh Show with as many as 27 million people tuning in to hear what the King had to say. I know I have been listening to him for nearly 30 years myself and the feeling of loss I am feeling is overwhelming.
From Fox News: In his final radio broadcast of 2020, Limbaugh thanked his listeners and supporters, revealing at the time that he had outlived his prognosis.
“I wasn’t expected to be alive today,” he said. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I’m feeling pretty good today.”
Limbaugh helped boost Trump’s influence prior to the 2016 election simply by taking him seriously as a candidate when other established conservatives didn’t want the former reality television star anywhere near the Republican Party. Many of Limbaugh’s listeners eventually became Trump supporters and the radio legend continued to defend Trump throughout his presidency despite occasional disagreements.
