Rush Hudson Limbaugh III January 12, 1951 – February 17, 2021) passed away today of lung cancer.
RIP. More than any single person, Rush Limbaugh helped break the left’s monopoly in the media. The left is still dominant, but not to the extent it was before he came along. He waged a brave struggle against deafness and later, the cancer that killed him. He was a giant. https://t.co/en5VQ9yCnW— Brit Hume (@brithume) February 17, 2021
He was an American radio personality, conservative political commentator, author and former television show host. He was best known as the host of his radio show The Rush Limbaugh Show, which has been in national syndication on AM and FM radio stations.
Limbaugh hosted a national television show from 1992 to 1996. He wrote seven books; his first two, The Way Things Ought to Be (1992) and See, I Told You So (1993), made The New York Times Best Seller list. In December 2019, Talkers Magazine estimated that Limbaugh’s show attracted a cumulative weekly audience of 15.5 million listeners to become the most-listened-to radio show in the United States.
Limbaugh was the premiere voice of the conservative movement. He was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame. During the 2020 State of the Union Address, President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The conservative movement will forever be grateful to his leadership and constancy. Obviously, we will see an obnoxious outpouring of delight from the Left for which he was a massive pain in their collective asses. We shall rise above it as he would.
Rest in Peace, Rush. We Dittoheads will never forget you.
And here it comes…sh*t running downhill
My 4-year-old is how I found out Rush Limbaugh died. He retweeted the news into my timeline. Then I heard him let out a cheer downstairs while I was in my room huffing paint. Now we’re banging pots and pans on the front lawn. A great day!!— Carey O'Donnell (@ecareyo) February 17, 2021
Rush Limbaugh was one of the most vile, evil people to have gained a platform in this country and there is absolutely nothing about him that should be celebrated or remembered fondly.— self-identified emo (@ThyArtIsMemes) February 17, 2021
Leftist jubilation over Rush Limbaugh’s death is a revealing window not into his soul but into theirs. This is who these people are! #RushLimbaughRIP— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) February 17, 2021
