After President Trump presented talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom during his State of the Union address, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) complained that it was “truly nauseating” to see a “virulent racist” receive the award.
“We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks,” AOC told her followers on social media. “You know, for example, in terms of their contributions to American progress.”
“Rush Limbaugh is a virulent racist,” she added, without citing any examples (because there aren’t any). It “was so disingenuous and to do that and to give it to Rush Limbaugh when there were plenty of people in that audience that have contributed positively to the fabric of American society much more, frankly, than he has.”
The left has had Rush in its hateful sights for decades but have accumulated no evidence of his purported racism that isn’t based on distortions or misquotes. Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow leftists simply hurl accusations of racism at everyone they oppose.
