I first heard Rush Limbaugh on the radio many, many, many years ago. Without looking up the date, it was soon after he became nationally syndicated.
At the time, my employment required a lot of travel, and I listened to the radio. Incessantly changing the channel, dismayed at the words and ideas that were against the Constitution, against freedom, much more like socialism.
At the time I was not aware of so much of the broader scope of craziness in the world.
Rush Limbaugh changed that.
Rush Limbaugh was a breath of fresh air, not only standing up for freedom, standing up for AMERICA, but he liked to “shine the light of truth in the darkness” to watch the little roaches (democrats) scurry to hide.
I believe that when I first started listening to Rush, it was even BEFORE his Golden EIB microphone. I DO remember one day he put a condom over his microphone in order to have “safe speech”.
Today, this morning, I read of Rush Limbaugh’s passing. I haven’t listened to Rush in years, but I, and America own Rush a lot for standing up for freedom.
Rush helped slow the inrushing tide of Socialism, and woke America up to what is coming.
Most Americans believe in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way”, and were happily going about their business unaware of the impending doom.
Because of Rush, Talk Radio exploded.
Subsequently, the Internet exploded, and we ALL have the ability to speak.
Until, of course, we are shut down by whining, cringy liberal / Socialists / leftists.
All of us have the honor of benefitting from Rush.
All of us have the obligation to carry on Rush’s legacy of speaking truth, in spite of the gaslighting, SJW attacks, censorship, and punishment if possible to our livelihoods.
Rush, you are a LEGEND.
Thank you for what you have done for America.
I, John Chapman, will continue to speak the truth, in my very small sphere of influence, without compromise.
No matter WHAT comes.
