The whole Republican Party owes a debt a gratitude to the life and work of Rush Limbaugh.
And they’re making sure it continues to be remembered.
Republicans found a way to honor Rush Limbaugh with a stunning piece of legislation.
The Rush Limbaugh Show first aired in 1988 and spent 33 years on the air, paving the way for conservative media.
Sadly Rush Limbaugh died of complications from lung cancer in February at the age of 70. His life and legacy will become an important part of American history in future generations.
Conservative media would not be where it is today if it wasn’t for Rush Limbaugh.
In order to honor him his childhood home state of Missouri approved legislation to honor the radio host every year on his birthday on January 12th.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the proposal would designate each January 12, Limbaugh’s birthday, as “Rush Limbaugh Day” in Missouri, noting, “the measure must receive approval from the Senate before the end of the legislative session next Friday,” which is also controlled by the GOP. According to the outlet, the vote followed a failed “Democratic-led effort to designate Jan. 13 as ‘Walter Cronkite Day,’ after the Missouri native and broadcast journalist who anchored the CBS Evening News.”
“Rush Limbaugh’s contributions to broadcasting and the conservative movement cannot be overstated. He was, simply put, a legend who cannot be replaced,” state Rep. Hardy Billington, a Republican from Poplar Bluff who sponsored the measure, had said previously. “This is one way we can recognize the outstanding impact Rush Limbaugh has had on our state and country.”
Some Democrats were outraged that Limbaugh was being recognized, Rep. Ashley Bland Manlove of Kanas City who issued a statement accusing the late entertainment icon of “constant attacks on Black people and other people of color.”
The Post-Dispatch reported that Democrats “cited decades of racist, misogynistic and homophobic statements by Limbaugh as reasons he should not be honored.”
“Have you ever heard him say any negative things on the radio about any race or another?” Rep. Jerome Barnes, a Democrat from Raytown, reportedly asked Billington.
“To me, he had been an outstanding deal; he had done so many great things,” Billington said, according to The Post-Dispatch. “Now I think I told you before he probably had not been perfect by no means of the imagination but he had done an outstanding job.”
But what the Democrats really hate about Rush Limbaugh is that he was a pioneer who showed that there was a market for conservative news.
They tried to destroy him at every turn and even though it has never worked they still keep attacking him even after his death.
