Missouri GQP is one step away from making every January 12 'Rush Limbaugh Day'

TeapubliKKKans in the Missouri House voted this Thursday to create “Rush Limbaugh Day.” The provision was tacked onto another bill which passed in the chamber. It will now move on to the Senate for approval, the Associated Press reports.

The day set aside for the honor is Jan. 12, the late right-wing radio host’s birthday.

“Rush demonstrated courage to speak boldly and encouraged his listeners and viewers to reach for their dreams and to push onward beyond the naysayers and discouragers that we all encounter in life,” Ashland Republican Rep. Sara Walsh said.

Unsurprisingly, Democrats aren’t big fans of the proposal. In a statement, Kansas City Democratic Rep. Ashley Bland Manlove slammed Limbaugh, who died at 70 from lung cancer in February, for his “constant attacks on Black people and other people of color.”

Also speaking out was Kansas City Democratic Rep. Ashley Aune.

“As a victim of sexual assault myself, their decision to enshrine a person who attempted to invalidate one of the most traumatic experiences of my life and the lives of other women and men is nothing short of infuriating,” she said.

1. With all his success, Rush never realized his dream of a harem of peasant house boys to

frolic with. That was the goal. A lot more people just need to be made peasants to make it happen.

2. So, we're going to celebrate the fact that he's dead every January 12th?

It comes on a Wednesday in 2022. Probably won't see a lot of celebrating in the middle of the week.

5. Yeah. Thanks Missouri.

Really great to equate that piece of shit with Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and Jesus Christ.

8. I understand children in the Dominican Republic observe Rush's death day as a holiday.

9. Pretty large swaths of Missouri where every day is Rush Limbaugh Day.

I used to live there and still have friends and family there.
