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.

Despite the hate, Americans know Rush Limbaugh was a patriot and a hero.

Rest in paradise, pal.

  • What hateful people there are n the world. Shall we go about saying that if Obama died we woul be dancing in the streets…..these people have no idea that they will too be judged for their hateful , dark hearts. I am sorry Rush died. He was way too young. Sorry to his wife, his family, those that loved him dearly. I do not know if he knew Jesus as his Savior…I hope so….
    And to those who would celebrate, shame on you, you have no heart at all

  • All the hate filled comments by an unethical and morally corrupted mind’s of the Democrat’s is just a ” Put on ” so they can try to make people think their happy. But we all know all the blathering about Rush’s death really makes them even unhappier than they all ready are. You have to be a liberal Democrat to be this miserable with their existence. I’ve never seen such an unhappy group as the Democrats

  • Many people believed the lies that were told about him. But when people actually listened to him to see if the lies were true, they would find out that they were false — many of those people became fans. Rush started out with more flaws even though he was still very talented. But over time he became became better and better.
