Inevitable online opposition emerges against red state tribute to a controversial conservative talker who recently died.
Check-it . . .
A Change.org petition launched on Saturday has received 1,400 signatures online as of Saturday evening. "The State of Missouri is better than this, we do NOT need to honor this bigoted shock-jock for his years of vile broadcast," the petition's author wrote. "Please, help us tell our State Representatives that this bill needs to be stopped."
However . . .
The news note doesn't (but should) mention that the Missouri Statehouse is controlled by a Republican SUPER MAJORITY and tribute to Mr. Limbaugh already stands in the Missouri Hall of Fame, inside the grand rotunda of the state capitol in Jefferson City. Missouri "Rush Day" is an inevitability and one of many ceremonial tributes that will be ignored by most broke-ass people in the state who are way more concerned about getting free COVID money than endless political rhetoric amid a worsening American standard of living.
And so, this petition is one of many online efforts that makes for a nice story but might not really change anything other than inspiring our talky playlist for tonight.
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
