Legendary Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Dies

Rush Limbaugh, the conservative radio personality who attracted an audience of millions and fought for decades against liberal expansionism in the United States, has died from lung cancer at the age of 70.

Limbaugh’s radio program made him one of the most influential conservative voices in the nation for over 30 years, for which he was presented the Medal of Honor by President Trump during the 2020 State of the Union Address, just days after he announced his lung cancer diagnosis.

His radio program, The Rush Limbaugh Show, became nationally syndicated in 1988 and quickly became the most listened to talk show in the United States. He had a monthly audience of 25 million on more than 650 stations, and broadcasted from his home in West Palm Beach, Florida for the past 26 years.

Limbaugh molded the political thinking of millions of listeners, including many from Lakewood, who tuned in to his program to hear his take on the politics of the day.

During his final show in 2020, knowing that he would soon die, Limbaugh thanked his listeners.

“My point in all of this is to say thanks and tell everybody involved how much I love you from the bottom of a sizeable and growing and still-beating heart.”

  1. baruch dayan lukshin tup!

    as a bachur I wasted wayyy too much time listening to the man behind the golden microphone
    it was entertaining and informative
    yet is was shtuss nivul peh and veiled abuzraryyu digiluy arayaos
    i wont miss hin

  2. to: nosson nuteh:
    WHAT is the point of your comment???
    It’s just plain “tipshis”
    As my great-Aunt Golda used to say: “If you have nothing nice to say, just keep quiet.”

  3. Although I agreed with most of Rush’s views, as I agreed with most of Trump’s views, let’s not make the same mistake we made with Trump. We can agree with someone without worshipping them. This applies to both Trump and Rush.

  4. He was a good man a staunch Israel supporter (i remember how horrified he was at the gaza disengagement) and a he had a close relationship with rabbi nate seagel from statin island his clear penetrating way of analyzing the political landscape was unparalleled he buoyed the American right with his strong spirit and good humor I and many other lakewooders have sent many happy hours listing to him he was a good decent upstanding man he will be sorely missed RIP Rush Hudson Limbough

  5. Liberals are the kat sonei Hashem.

    Rush Limbaugh spent his life speaking out publicly and fighting against the kat sonei Hashem.

    Only the Bochen L’vovos can pass judgement, but being one of the foremost spokesmen against the kat sonei Hashem is a pretty good thing to have on your record.

  6. He was a real Jew lover and he promoted emes in a world of sheker. He has plenty of זכות. And nosson nuteh if you wasted time listening to him well shame on you. That’s your fault not his.

  7. I heard one of his final broadcasts. He talked about how he wasn’t supposed to make it this long, but yet he was here and on the air. He said he felt immense gratitude for that, and discussed gratitude, which is very much in line with our hashkafos – gratitude for what we have. Such a decent human being, I learned so much from him through the years. He will be missed!

  8. When you spread hate, lies, and fear it all comes around 360! No Good deed doesnt go rewards and No Bad deed doesnt get punished! Google Limbaugh Family and tell me if he really liked you! Google Limbaugh family WW II!!!! Food for thought!
