Trump To Award Rush Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom — Has He Heard These Horribly Offensive Racist Quotes?

We’ve seen the pardon power perverted to cronyism and self-serving Trump idiocy, now we’re going to see the same thing happen with the Medal of Freedom. Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he is giving his golfing buddy and propaganda mouthpiece, Rush Limbaugh, the Medal of Freedom, which is the highest honor a president* can bestow upon a civilian — because Limbaugh told the world he has lung cancer, and to Trump’s mind this makes that better. The Medal of Freedom is awarded for, “An especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.” Anybody care to take a shot at what Limbaugh has contributed to, out of this list? Is hate mongering a cultural achievement? Perhaps that could be argued, although the cultural contribution of other recipients of the award, such as Barbra Streisand and Robert DeNiro, has been to have a positive cultural impact, on America and the world. Here’s Twitter’s reaction. Well said, Joe. Limbaugh’s hate-filled and racist rhetoric has always been built on misinformation and straight out lies. He’s a bully as well. How ironic the award is the “Medal of Freedom” when he disrespects refugees, esp POC who comes to the “Land of the Free.”Just like DT. — Lisa Haines (@lisahaineslaw) February 4, 2020 “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?” — Rush Limbaugh https://t.co/L8q0E5biKG — Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) February 4, 2020 “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.” — Rush Limbaugh — Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) February 4, 2020 [To an African American female caller]: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.” — Rush Limbaugh — Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) February 4, 2020 Ideal women: 36-24-36, five foot seven, flat spot on top of the head, a deaf-mute. The flat spot on the top of the head is for your drink. — Rush Limbaugh — tump* is a demented sociopath (@KindnessnMercy) February 5, 2020 Now Limbaugh also praised the man who assassinated Martin Luther King. And this is what deserves our nation’s highest honor? This is what happens when the GOP decides it’s a-okay to make a cartoon out of our institutions and our traditions. I hope we have some fragment of them left when Trump is finally gone. At the rate they’re being defiled, I frankly have my doubts. And check out Trump’s previous recipients of the Medal of Freedom. They are predominantly white male  and a majority are also either athletes or Republican figures — just like Limbaugh. Well, I guess it makes sense why the GOP loves Trump so much. He’s their boy and sees things the way they do. He just talks openly about what they think, wink-wink, nudge-nudge — and so does Limbaugh. I’ll tell you a POC voting for Donald Trump, or a woman for that matter, is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.
