FL Gov. Announces Massive Honor for Rush Limbaugh

7 6 218

Rush Limbaugh was a radio and cultural icon — a man who could take on the left with half his brain tied behind his back just to make it fair. He belongs to the ages now; Limbaugh died at the age of 70 on Ash Wednesday from Stage IV lung cancer.

Now, the state of Florida is honoring him by flying its flags at half-staff to commemorate the funeral of the Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient.

“I know they’re still figuring out the arrangements but what we do when there’s things of this magnitude, once the date of interment for Rush is announced, we’re going to be lowering the flags to half-staff,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, said at a news briefing, according to WKMG-TV.

While Limbaugh was long associated with New York City, he moved his operation to Florida 10 years ago, according to American Greatness. There, he broadcast from what he called his “Southern Command” in Palm Beach.

In a statement released shortly after Limbaugh’s passing, DeSantis said, “Rush busted through a media landscape in which a handful of media outlets served up pre-cooked, liberal narratives. By providing a fresh, conservative perspective, Rush attracted millions of listeners and paved the way for the proliferation of conservative media. Rush was no flash in the pan — he was the dominant force in radio for decades.

“Rush is the GOAT — of radio, of conservative media and of inspiring a loyal army of American patriots.”
