I’m happy he’s dead. It might not seem like the nicest thing to be happy about someone dying, but Rush Limbaugh truly deserves an exception. He was a conservative troll beyond compare in his heyday.
His contributions to economic ignorance, civic ignorance, conservative propaganda, racism, sexism, and homophobia cannot be understated. Millions listened daily, for hours.
He blazed a trail of fear-mongering, distortion and misrepresentation of facts, events and data, before Trump had even had his first bankruptcy, his first conviction for discriminatory redlining, or his first alleged rape. Rush Limbaugh and his followers were the original MAGAts.
I celebrated his death yesterday by anonymously delivering coffee to the guys I work with who watch Fox News (their audience and Limbaugh’s are one in the same). They don’t know who sent them coffee or why, but they don’t need to know. My treat.
The world is a slightly better place today without Rush Limbaugh in it.
