The following article, Flashback: Teacher Hopes Rush Limbaugh Dies ‘Quick’ & ‘Painful’ Death, ‘Should Have to Suffer’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
It can’t be easy being a K-12 public school student in the age of Trump. If you show support for the president, there’s a decent chance you’ll be shunned and scolded by peers and educators alike.
That’s what things have come to in 2020. Civility is all but dead, as are many facets of education. How can children form opinions of their own if liberal instructors are constantly imposing their own one-sided views?
Robot teachers, anyone!?
A Milwaukee Public Schools teacher was placed on leave Wednesday for tweeting that he hopes conservative talk show pundit Rush Limbaugh dies a painful death from cancer.
Replying to a different tweet expressing hope that Limbaugh would recover and begin advocating for affordable health care, Sarandos wrote: “limbaugh absolutely should have to suffer from cancer. it’s awesome that he’s dying, and hopefully it is as quick as it is painful.”

Can’t find the words to express my pain and disgust at seeing Rush Limbaugh receive the nation’s highest honor in the house that my ancestors built. But in their name, I say that this is not the end. We will overcome this hate and live to see a better day. This too shall pass.

Only one thing to say about Rush Limbaugh getting a Presidential Medal if Freedom at The State of the Union: I loathe this fucking man.

Donald Trump has decided that the key to improving his weak 2020 odds is to give the Presidential Medal of Freedom to flaming piece of dogshit Rush Limbaugh.
No really, this is what Trump is focused on.
Told you he doesn’t have a clue about 2020. Work hard and we’ll beat him.

Very few people have done more to endanger the lives of vulnerable populations, degrade the poor, sow racial divisions, inspire treasonous behavior, and poison American families than Rush Limbaugh. To award him the Medal of Freedom tarnishes the medal.

Few people have done more to degrade our political discourse than Rush Limbaugh. It's an absolute disgrace that he's being honored here.

Rush Limbaugh is single-handedly responsible for the origins of right-wing propaganda in this nation. He paved the way for Fox through right wing radio.
Trump is giving him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The staggering destruction of the honor and dignity of the presidency.

And I'm already tired of posting these quotes. You get the point. Rush Limbaugh is a vile, disgusting human being, and this is what Trump is endorsing.
