Radio legend Rush Limbaugh always talked about himself as “talent on loan from God.” Today, God said he had need for that talent, and he called Rush home to heaven on special assignment.
Limbaugh died from lung cancer after a year-long battle that he fought in public alongside his lifelong battle against liberalism and in defense of America.
It is tempting to say that Limbaugh’s death represents the end of an era because his death leaves a huge hole in the public discourse, but in fact Limbaugh was the beginning of an era that is far from over. His impact on radio and on conservatism is the equivalent of George Washington’s impact on American politics.
Limbaugh had a love affair with American values and traditions, and no one spoke more passionately or more authoritatively than him about the importance of individual rights and the danger of big government.
I was fortunate enough to have Rush quote my columns on his nationwide talk show twice in the last two years since I started Heartland Diary USA.
Back in July 2019, I wrote about the “America Last” Democrats and how they could not beat Donald Trump. (I didn’t take into account vote fraud!) You can read my column about Limbaugh’s use of my ideas to spin his own here.
In May of last year, Rush quoted from my column asking President Trump to appoint special prosecutors on Obamagate and on Biden corruption. You can read Rush’s commentary here. As usual, Rush had a hard time pronouncing my name, but it was fun to listen to him try!
Having Rush Limbaugh mention me on his radio program was an honor of a lifetime. I certainly hope to continue to learn from his example and to follow in his path.
He was and will be an inspiration for millions of Americans who love their country. God bless Rush Limbaugh, and God bless America.
