(Thefreedomflag.com) – Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh has announced he was diagnosed with cancer shortly after his birthday in January and will be undergoing chemotherapy. In an episode of his popular radio show, Limbaugh explained that he began experiencing problems in January and was recently diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. Initially, he said, he thought his problems were a result of his asthma but turned out to be much more serious.
He offered no information about his prognosis and whether the condition is likely to be terminal, but he did say that he will continue hosting his show on as many days as he is physically capable.
The news shook the conservative world, with outpourings of love and support for the Republican stalwart coming through various social media channels. However, the rage and contempt of far-left radicals couldn’t be held in.
SJWs have posted sickening memes, GIFs, and tweets celebrating Rush Limbaugh’s illness.
The Post Millennial reported that replies underneath a tweet by the Huffington post announcing the news were particularly extreme, mocking Limbaugh and suggesting his cancer diagnosis was “karma.”
One tweet, from user @MOhlhoff, read:
“Counterpoint to what seems to be the prevailing opinion on Rush Limbaugh’s cancer:
Fuck Rush Limbaugh.
Also, fuck his cancer for being 40 years too late.”
User @Dan_Marsh_ posted multiple pictures of Rush Limbaugh smoking cigars, offering the comment:
“Big shoutout to cigars for all their hard work. Fuck Rush Limbaugh.”
The insults didn’t all come from faceless and nameless Twitter accounts, either. Even the blue checkmarks started to chime in.
Writer and comedian Nick Jack Pappas wrote:
“I’m so sorry for lung cancer, no one deserves Rush Limbaugh. I wish him the best medical care he’s worked on denying to others.”
Writer and comedian Johnny McNulty said:
“It’s not cool to joke about Rush Limbaugh having cancer. You might jinx it.”
The vitriol and hatred continue to pour out on Twitter into a second day and is reminiscent of when professor Jordan Peterson was mocked online for checking into rehab following his wife’s cancer diagnosis.
