Light a digital candle for Rush’s recovery! CLICK HERE.
Yesterday, while vacationing in Honolulu, Rush Limbaugh was stricken with chess pains and taken by ambulance to a hospital. His radio program says he’s “resting comfortably” and that they’ll update us with more news: “Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes and will keep you updated via rushlimbaugh.com and on his radio program.”
After the GOP’s debacle in the 2008 election, the Republican Party has been demoralized and leaderless. It is no exaggeration to say that Rush is now the de facto leader of the Conservative Movement. Without him, taking back our country in 2010 will be even more arduous. His voice must not be silenced!
Please pray for Rush — that God sends His angels to spread their wings of healing and protection over Rush. Rush needs our continuing prayers. We all know full well that The Enemy’s many followers and minions, full of malice and hatred, are doing exactly the opposite: They are “praying” and hoping for Rush’s end.
Steeling myself, I went on HuffingtonPost to see what those on the Left are saying. To their credit, many of the commenters sent Rush their good wishes despite their disagreement with his politics, such as this one by Knowitall:
I don’t like him or his views, but I don’t wish him or anyone any ill. Hope he’ll be OK.
Or this one by kennybean:
I never thought I would wish Rush Limbaugh well. But I truly hope he is okay; this must have been scary.
And this one by SocialNote47:
Even though i cannot stand this man. I pray that he will be alright.. God Bless you Rush…
But there are malicious comments, such as this one by northstar11:
on the ride in rush said to himself —good thing i’m rich –i can afford to get treatment ——others might say this is going to bankrupt me and my family –make it quick dear lord.
And this one by brigadere:
Sorry Rush Limbaugh is a spreader of hatred and although I don’t wish him any harm but I will not be sending him well wishes. Furthermore, although I don’t know the man past his radio persona, if this is in fact who he is through and through in my opinion the world would be a better place without him.
Politico, however, reports that “from less prominent corners of the Twitter-verse, there was a steady drip of joy expressed at Limbaugh’s misfortunes. The humor website TheFullGinsburg.com wrote, ‘No one wants Rush Limbaugh to die. But they do want his doctors to fail,’ and a quick thumb through Twitter’s #Rush hashtag reveals other wishes of ill health upon Limbaugh.”
Liberals do not have a monopoly on evil. Politico points out that “some conservatives had fun with the idea that if only it were a liberal in the hospital… ‘I’d donate a heart to keep Rush alive,’ wrote blogger Dan Riehl. ‘Just need a knife and a liberal close by. ; )’.”
This is what we have come to as a nation…. God help us!
Brothers and sisters in Christ! Put on the armor of God and the shield of Faith, and go to battle — for Rush, for America, for all that is good!
“Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” -Ephesians 6:10-12
