Awarding the Medal of Freedom to Limbaugh is worse than a joke. It's criminal.




  • In 2019, Limbaugh claimed that “the entire homosexual community is going to become pro-life” if it’s “discovered that homosexuality is genetic.”
  • In 2017, Limbaugh used an anti-trans slur while saying that Republicans should not “provide a comforting atmosphere for the tranny community and the gay community.”

  • In 2016, Limbaugh claimed that the Iowa LGBT Rural Summit was an attempt to “convince lesbians to become farmers” in order to “bust up one of the last geographically conservative regions in the country.”

  • In 2016, Limbaugh claimed that Washington state schools’ trans-inclusive curriculum would be “teaching transgenderism to kindergartners” as a “recruitment” tactic.

  • That same year, Limbaugh claimed that LGBTQ rights are “leading to the erosion of private property” and that “the federal government is going to have to come in and take over everything in order to guarantee civil rights.”

  • That same year, Limbaugh suggested that Roman Catholic Church sexual abuse cases in Boston were a result of “the gay infiltration of the Catholic Church.”       [media matters]



The right-wing  Republicans all have a crush

On the Medal of Freedom recipient Rush.

His bigotry’s vile

As well as his bile,

So his medal I’d throw in the toilet and flush.

  • And Trump will probably try to give the Medal of Honor to Eddie Gallagher, the Navy Seal war criminal he pardoned.

  • At least he was consistent, and won't be around long to enjoy it.
    I wonder about the interpretation of your last bullet point, maybe depending on the definitions of "gay" and "infiltration."
    I tend to agree with South Bend Pete that someone who went through serial divorces and Oxycontin abuse isn't in a position to talk about family values.

  • You'd abuse your toilet that much? Sigh.
