Lefties Show True Colors With Hateful Treatment of Rush Limbaugh

After the death of Rush Limbaugh was announced this morning, Twitter was littered with all types of tributes to the conservative talk radio legend. There were boatloads of heartwarming condolences, but as we’ve come to expect, many on the left instead offered embarrassing celebrations about his demise.

Since this political “side” prides itself on inclusion and tolerance, throwing a social media party because someone they disagree with has died might seem hypocritical, but it’s actually not. The problem is that the left confuses unity with agreement.

Check out the “unity” of the left:

These blue checkmark bozos actually believe the Huff Post’s headlines, that Limbaugh was the “bigoted king of Talk Radio,” or worse, a “bigot, misogynist, homophobe, crank.” However, if the Nick Robins-Early and Christopher Mathias trio had gone into depth about why Rush thought the way he did, then they’d quickly realize they hardly understand him at all. We’re told to hate people we don’t understand, instead of questioning them.

How should Rush be remembered?

Rush Limbaugh was a trailblazer for freedom of thought who made it cool to push back on groupthink. Did he make points that I personally disagree with? Absolutely, but he taught us that we can think for ourselves, that we don’t have to conform. This philosophy unlocked the minds of millions and encouraged them to think for themselves. This was his contribution to society, and it will be his legacy going forward.

Conservatives should perhaps be angry about the blatant disrespect shown to Limbaugh since his death, but that hasn’t been their way. The conservative/Republican movement prefers to clap back at hate with love. When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away last year, conservatives did not issue the level of divisiveness we are reading now about Limbaugh. The long term effect of this constant divisiveness from the left is that we grow further and further apart from one another.

That’s a country none of us signed up for, and it’s unfortunate that institutions like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and even some colleges encourage this type of behavior. The American people are being hardwired to hate their political opposition and to view them as a threat to society. At some point, something’s going to give between the two sides, and it won’t just be a few unfortunate hours at the Capitol.

Rush Limbaugh would encourage us all to think for ourselves, and he should remembered as such. RIP to a leader who made questioning our overlords a common practice. It will ultimately lead us to a safer, more unified America.

  1. Twitter is an absolute cesspool. Imagine thinking it’s cool or funny to say disgusting things about someone when they die.

    When I was 4 years old I learned a couple valuable lessons it appears aren’t being taught any longer:

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. + If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

  2. Facebook too. I’m appalled at the comments I’m seeing from “friends.” While I was never a fan of talk radio and don’t know much about Limbaugh, I can’t believe that some people blatantly celebrate someone’s death out of sheer hatred. Gina Carano may have been on to something when she compared what happened in Nazi Germany to what’s happening in this country.

  3. A true a American hero. I remember the first time I heard him fresh out of high school working a summer job driving a truck with only an AM radio. Totally changed the way I think and look at things. RIP Rush. If only the media reported on the true nature of the far left.

    • They are hoping to silence the real threat to their power: us. They can’t grasp that individuals can think for themselves, and that there is a higher truth.

      They see their own followers as just drones following them because they are their intellectual betters.

  4. I mean it’s no shock the blue checkmark brigade went that route when Rush died. Anybody that isn’t 100% groupthink is going to get ‘piss on their grave’ chants from the woke mob.

    Rush never bothered me with his comments…if anything the fact he was willing to say it on hundreds of radio stations and a brief tv show knowing he’d probably get the pitchforks from the mob made me respect him more.

  5. Twitter and Facebook are showing their true colors when it comes to Rush.
    I am on Parler and it is entirely different.
    Why are you helping to fund people hate you.
    Twitter & Facebook makes money off of active users.
    Stop using them.

    I began listening to Rush when he was at one station in Sacramento and you could tell that he had it all down. Politics and entertainment.

    He was the one who broke the establishment hold on the media. I don’t think there would have been a President Trump if it had not been for Rush bringing back populism to the Republican Party.


  6. The left hates, it’s what they do. They cannot live without it. If there were only leftists in the world they would hate on each other. We are in a “cold” culture war. They must be fought with every ounce of debate, logic and rhetoric we have. They will never stop.

  7. This is all very sad and troubling as a nation we are not in a good place we need to remember we can have our differences but we can also be civil about it life is really short and to spend all this time hating well just not how we should be as a people RIP Rush

  8. Never forget the words of Michelle Obama:

    “When they go low, we go high”…..

    Everyday we see the continued intolerance on the left and their inability to show even the slightest bit of decency to anyone except those who pledge blind allegiance to their misguided policies I’m reminded of Michelle’s quote and laugh my ass off…

    Funny, I thought they won the election and got rid of the great evil plaguing our nation… but most on the left remain the most nastiest, miserable people out there….

  9. Great column. I refuse to ever grieve for a leftist and have zero qualms with shitting on their memory. I didn’t use to it but I’ve seen hate and vitriol from them for years. I actually was fed up with the way they celebrated Herman Cains death last year. Conservatives need to quit with the high road crap already, it’s gotten us nowhere.

  10. Fell like I lost a best friend today, he was a great story teller who had humor and wisdom.Loved when he said he gave his mother a new can opener for Christmas and a liberal feminist senator from Colorado took to the floor of senate to say Rush feeds his mother dog food.RIP Rush

  11. Rush was a patriot and a great man. His name will be remembered far longer than any of these pseudo intellectual hate filled lefties. I didn’t know who any of them were before today and as I write have forgotten their names.

    • Yes! I woke up this morning and the first thing that came to mind was Rush’s passing. I can still picture my dad sitting by the stereo listening to Rush. My dad passed away almost 3 years ago now (also at 70). I feel like I just lost my dad all over again with Rush’s passing.

  12. The left can`t stand Rush because they know they have nothing compared to him. He just spoke the truth and they can`t handle it. I`m looking forward who carries the torch from here (maybe Trump).
    Thanks for your great work, Rush!!….RIP.

  13. Nice column, Gary.

    I didn’t listen to Rush daily, but I’d catch him every now & then. More than anything, he made me question the status quo and not be afraid to challenge those who parrot the talking points that the MSM proffers on a daily basis. To me, he was a trailblazer in radio and in our country. He will be missed.

  14. Conservatives need to be tough and nasty. Taking the high road doesn’t work. Democrats rule the roost because they constantly attack. The weak republicans in Congress need to grow a pair. Cruz, Hawley, Cotton, Blackburn and the woman newly elected from CO are the only ones with stones.

    • And when you win by following the Hard Left Machiavelli mantra of the ends justify the means, and see the destruction you’ve brought, in the name of ‘good’, will you be able to look in the mirror?

      Look at all the collateral damage, especially to the young, that they have brought, and why, because it doesn’t bother them to look in the mirror and lie to themselves. You and I have a conscious and understand that ‘this’ will be their only reward, while our reward will be everlasting for taking the high road.

      Dude, I get it, it’s very frustrating, doing the right thing is always the hardest thing to do. I would argue it’s just a matter of more good folks getting involved. I still admire your willingness to fight.
