Rush Limbaugh's Recent Life Achievement

Rush Limbaugh received the presidential medal of freedom for his contributions to the country in 2020. This didn't occur without a controversial backlash. Notable recipients of the medal include:

  • Hellen Keller
  • Neil Armstrong
  • Jackie Robinson
  • Mother Teresa
  • Rosa Parks
  • Pope John Paul II
  • Maya Angelou
  • Eli Wiesel

To put a controversial radio host on this list seems to deteriorate the value of the honor. Limbaugh has a history of using rederick and insults to build his empire. His divisiveness may be his worst attribute.

This man has made personal attacks on Michael J. Fox for acting like he has a disease because he doesn't believe the actor has any symptoms. In another radio show, he claimed that a women requesting that congress make birth control free was a slut and if we were paying for her contraceptives then she must post sex videos online.

There is plenty more troubling remarks that Limbaugh made that I would think exclude him as a candidate of such a high honor. If you don't believe me check in the video below.

Whether you like Rush or not, its should be sad to hear about someone who has to have a slow and painful death caused by lung cancer. No one should have to suffer from this disease.
