    Rush Limbaugh Is Dead

    How can you speak kindly about the dead when the deceased didn’t speak kindly about you?

    Rush Limbaugh died. There is probably not one single person, over the course of my life, who I detested more. He never knew me. But I sure as hell knew him. Anyone with a shred of decency reviled the man. I’m not the most decent person in the world. I can admit to that. However, I knew in my heart I was gay, and Limbaugh came about during a time when there was enough humiliation about my sexuality and myself, and all Limbaugh did was pile on during that confusing time, and made me wonder, "Why does he hate me so much?"

    Limbaugh was the biggest and worst windbag of his generation, which is to say that of this generation, Limbaugh was starting to take a backseat to the plethora of hatemongers who raced in behind him, all attempting to be the next Limbaugh. Alex Jones, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, the list goes on and on, all striving to vomit out as much hate as Limbaugh did. Limbaugh got sick. With lung cancer. It should have been brain cancer, since his mind was a sieve of slime. And his mind thought I was out of my mind because I was gay. All along, he was the one who was sick. It was never me.

    Limbaugh loathed me more than I loathed myself, and he loathed anyone like me, and he loathed people like me during the AIDS crisis, when his sickening, repugnant voice screeched abhorrence to anyone sick with the disease.

    He did not speak kindly of the dead during that era. I imagine he never had a grandmother or anyone with an ounce of decorum who told him not to speak ill about the deceased. He was the antithesis of truth and honor. And now, he is dead.

    Thank your for this heartfelt post, which perfectly sums up the vileness of this man and the damage he did to so many of us.

    To borrow from Bette Davis, "I try to only say good about the dead. Limbaugh is dead. Good."

    US House to Vote on Equality Act

    Per Chris Johnson:

    Confirmed: House to vote next week (23-26 February 2021) on the Equality Act.

    Per Steny Hoyer to colleagues:

    "Other legislation coming to the Floor next week are two bills…a wilderness package and the Equality Act. The latter, which passed in the House the last session, will end legal discrimination against LGBTQ Americans."
