Yesterday, more gaslighting as a way of life:
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
America truly lost an icon today.
A native Missourian, Rush Limbaugh ushered in a new era of conservatism, championing freedom and the American Dream to millions of listeners over his accomplished radio career. May he rest in peace.

And, as always, some of the responses:
This man brought unimaginable hate into the world. His only dream was for white supremacists to have the freedom to subjugate black and brown people.
You smile & pretend to be Christian, all while discriminating against anyone different from you. You spread hate just like him.
Remember that time when Rush made fun of Michael J. Fox’s disability? I hope there is a hell, I hope Limbaugh is in it & I hope he saves you a seat up front.
Rush Limbaugh led the way to the the coarsing of America’s social & political discourse. He & Newt Gingrich were yoked together in this effort. I, for one, will not miss his voice. He DID NOT deserve to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Missouri’s SHAME.
I will thank him because as a little girl who was raised listening to him regularly I appreciate his being instrumental in making me the liberal Dem I am today.
The new age of conservatism that Rush Limbaugh ushered in has been defined by lies, hatred, extreme partisanship, and unadulterated ugliness.
Not all icons are worth celebrating.
Sure. You go and tell yourself that.
America certainly lost *something* today…I just hesitate to pin down what that something was, since it’s probably not the kind of thing you want to say in polite company.
I know, what’s the point of pretending? He was a divisive POS.
I’m not one to celebrate anyone’s death, but I am glad he can no longer spread hatred.
It’s ok when evil dies.
an icon of what, exactly?
racism and misogyny?
Icon? Division and hate is his legacy. Yours will be a complacent enabler.
One of America’s most “toxic” public personalities.
He was evil personified. His racist, misogynistic, hate-filled rhetoric will not be missed by sane Americans.
Oh, please. He’s torn apart countless families with his divisive BS rhetoric all for the love of fame, power, & money.
You are promoting a hate monger. Why are we not surprised
Of course you would praise him. You are as big a bigot as he was. To call him an icon is agreeing with his attacks against, not only the gay community, but all the other groups he targeted. You’re disgusting.
He was a hate-spewing, disgusting human.
You’ve expressed more empathy for this pill-popping bigot than you have for the Capitol officer who was killed by your party’s violent, paranoid mob.
The “American Dream”? Is that what right wingnuts are calling it these days?

The blaspemy of “Talent on loan from God”, the vile against Hillary Clinton that was believed by so many people, and multiplied by hate mongers, the lack of any genuine remorse when when he got things so wrong, so often, from Dole beating Clinton, to McCain beating Obama, to Weapons of Mass destruction to “the largest tax increase in the epilogue of human history causing the worst financial disaster this country hasever seen.” Which was followed factually with the Greatest Job numbers and economic growth the Country had ever seen, and there was no.”Ops, I missed that one” or , “Well I was wrong this time, but I’ll be right next time, no, instead there was a doubling down on what “Bubba” Clinton had done wrong. Obama’s a muslim, nope, He’s going to come get your guns America…nope. Hillary Clinton is a card carring Socialist…nope. The next President of the United States…MITT ROMNEY..nope. HE WAS WRONG SO OFTEN , HE NEEDED TO GIVE UP ANY MONIKER INSINUATING THAT HE WAS “RIGHT” ….OF ANYTHING. Didn’t wish Cancer upon him, but he lost his hearing due to Oxycontin ABUSE. His vile pointed at the “Dangerous Left Wing Corporate Media machine, was BLIND, TO THE INVERSE OPPOSITE RIGHT WING CORPORATE MEDIA machine, because he agreed with it, which makes him the KING OF DISENGENUOUSNESS. Most people of good faith would never wish him DEAD….BUT , for him to SHUT UP AND STOP THE LIES….OH YES, this was an answered prayer, and fervent wish of anyone seeking truth without BOMBASTIC HYPERBOLE. Oh yes and PSA….Cigars cause cancer.

Blasphemy was spelled wrong. Sorry. He had 4 wives and NO KIDS? The Palm Beach Post reported on Rush’s divorce from his third wife, Marta Fitzgerald, back in 2004. The two initially got together after Fitzgerald started corresponding with Rush via letters. While Fitzgerald was married when they initially met, she divorced her then-husband, and the rest is history. But Rush explained his reasoning for separating from Fitzgerald was because he didn’t have much time for love.
“I’m too much in love with myself,” he once explained.
Despite the proclamation, we know Rush married a fourth time. And he had some controversial marriage advice, too. “If you want a successful marriage, let your husband do what he wants to do,” he said. WHAT A CHARMER HUH?
Rush didn’t like dogs either, no kids, no dogs. Giant Ego…..OK, so ….let’s move on.
I know when. I pass there won’t be nation wide news coverage, but, those who note my passing, will be able to say, “He loved his ONE and only wife, he LOVED his two Daughters, he Loved the kids he taught in school, his Mother and Father, his Grand parents and cousins. He loved his dog and tolerated his wife’s cats. He loved his country and the environment, and sought to make the world a better, happier, friendly and more tolerant place. He had many friends of color and various religious persuasions, who all lament his passing. His music and his words and his loving actions will out last his bones in the earth, and echo in the string of humanity that passes through all of us for eternity.” AT LEAST, that’s what I’m shooting for. God willing, and if the creeks don’t rise.
