"Rush Limbaugh, the sex tourist and drug addict whose four marriages, mockery of people after their deaths and overt racism and misogyny made him a beloved icon of American conservatism, is dead at 70." –@Beschizza https://t.co/8fddlq7k4M— Cory Doctorow #BLM (@doctorow) February 17, 2021
"A full accounting of Limbaugh’s lies and exaggerations; his racism and his misogyny; his homophobia and his Islamophobia; and his sheer cruelty could fill books." By @nickrobinsearly and @letsgomathias https://t.co/YO2c2vblPn— Graeme Demianyk (@GraemeDemianyk) February 17, 2021
Rush Limbaugh had a regular radio segment where he would read off the names of gay people who died of AIDS and celebrate it and play horns and bells and stuff.— Paul Elliott Johnson (@RhetoricPJ) February 17, 2021
But he’s not black. Do you know he has not one shred of African-American blood? He doesn’t have any African — that’s why when they asked whether he was authentic, whether he’s down for the struggle. He’s Arab. You know, he’s from Africa. He’s from Arab parts of Africa. He’s not — his father was — he’s not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American.
