For those who condone this award to this person, I truly feel sorry for you. You are in the same class a this man, a racist, bigoted, closed minded individual. You will call me a leftist, because I believe in human dignity? There is only one race and it is called the human race. We all have about 99% of the same DNA, there are a deviations in the DNA that cause the skin to be a different color. So get over yourself.
Rush deserved the award! I thought you leftists were above picking on sick people ! New low for you! Oh wait your the party that has politicians that say things like f##k Donald trump! Classy, right?
Obviously many people have not actually listened to Rush. If they had they would have known he is not a racist, something that seems to be tossed around as much as a salad these days. Just because he is a conservatist in his politics doees to make him a racist. Seems everyone who does not agree with Leftist ideas are racist. Its lost all meaning for most people cause of these insane accusations.
He is a political commentator with a sense of humor. I have loveed his analaysis and mocking of our times and the absurdity that does exist in politics. Yes he made jokes to illustrate the double standards etc. Lighten up. He mocked jokingly to prove points even to the point to expect the out of context and twist the next day in news of what he said. . Its sad cause many accusing him of this never really listened to the guy. They should have they might have had enjoyed his wit and commentary and gained some insight and understanding. He deservered the "Medal of Freedom". He is a great thinker and a good man.
I am a woman who served in the military from 1984 -1993. Rush Limbaugh disparaged and vilified female service members with a vengeance throughout the 1990's and other radio talk show hosts joined him. His rhetoric negatively impacted women (and by default male) veterans trying to integrate and join the civilian job market. Though conservative hate radio let up some in the years after the invasion of Iraq when both men and women military were coming home in body bags - the damage had been done making it difficult for veterans to get a job. Medal of Freedom is not appropriate for someone who is from an industry that contributes to the military veteran suicide rate.
I would like to see proof that this was going to happen even before the cancer announcement was made. It all stinks to high hell.
Since when did spewing hatred and divisiveness become worthy of an award of high honor? Some of us have twisted values.
Previous radio personality winners were Lowell Thomas & Paul Harvey. Rush is no Lowell or Paul. Remember this is the guy who accused Michael J Fox of faking Parkinson’s. What an embarrassment.
Awesome! First Class Act!
Don't remember crying when Obama gave it to Ellen????? Silly leftists!
Another new low.
Further influence that Donald Trump is living in some kind of parallel universe. Yikes.
This is the racist who for 8 years sang "Obama rhe Magic Negro" to the tune of "Puff the Magic Dragon".
HELLS BELLS, NO!!! And on Rosa Parks b-day, Black History month!! Are you freakin' kidding me?!
