We all know that we should never speak ill of the dead, but it looks like that a huge number of people forgot about this after the news of Rush Limbaugh spread around.

Limbaugh was considered a conservative and very provocative man best known as the host of his radio show The Rush Limbaugh Show. Now, after he’s no longer around, many opted to highlight the mean words he used to speak. The Hollywood Reporter reported president Biden describing Limbaugh as “a conservative media personality who has done as much as Trump himself to divide our nation,” during one occasion.

Many spared no words of hatred to describe how they felt about Limbaugh passing, with some feeling sorry for the devil himself for having to share the hell with him.

Others condemned him for everything he stood for while he was alive.

In 2020, Rush Limbaugh was given a Presidential Medal of Freedom by former president Trump who thanked the host during his speech for “decades of tireless devotion to our country.” People seemed not to like the fact the host was a recipient of such honorable medal.

Limbaugh offended many during his career behind the mic and people were not afraid to remind everyone of the vicious things he used to do and say.

Limbaugh, who died at 70 of lung cancer, was very opinionated. Speaking of feminism, he once said it “allows unattractive women access to the mainstream of society” adding “I love the women’s movement, especially when walking behind it.”

In the book The Most Dangerous Man in America: Rush Limbaugh’s Assault on Reason, author John K. Wilson speaks of the “ideologies of America’s most notorious conservative radio talk show icon,” and his homophobic, sexist, and cruel statements. In it, Limbaugh was quoted saying: “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it’s an invitation.”

Of course, there are also those who mourn the loss of Rush Limbaugh.
