One of the worst hate-mongers in history, Rush Hudson Limbaugh III would be the first bilateral cochlear implant user to receive the Presidental Medal of Freedom. Correct? His general sentiments would mock Deaf people countless times before becoming “Deaf” which would be instant karma. Is it not a good penalty?
So stupid that he couldn’t even graduate from college. He does not deserve the title as being ‘Famous Deaf people’ because Rush Limbaugh is not a valuable Deaf member in the Deaf community and has nothing to do with the Deaf culture even if he has a cochlear implant.
The cochlear implant industry is profit-motivated and would collect profits above the well-being of Deaf people. For example, Oralism, eugenics, AGBell, the anti-ASL campaign, and of course, CI industry–all connected. There are thousands of stories about CI users who have derived little or no benefit from the implants at all.
While Rush Limbaugh, one of the worst bigots in America, that practices the society’s minds, sending the wave of hatred the same way by mistreating the Deaf community and he is getting the Medal of Freedom is indeed sad and humanely differentiated; Sharing the propaganda of the greatest likelihood of success in cochlear implant industry.
Rush Limbaugh: “We want everybody to succeed. You know why? We want the country to succeed, and for the country to succeed, its people – its individuals – must succeed.”
Want to make a bet that the same Rush Limbaugh has strong connections with the Oberkotter Foundation in any way? Limbaugh who would often make a lot of hate-filled comments targeting minorities as a radio-host in the decades of hostility, the approach in which the brutality of the Deaf community has been exposed more than ever before. A word of caution, a life of bitterness can leave Rush Limbaugh empty and shallow.
Cochlear implant industry and Oberkotter Foundation makes a deal to rake in millions, millions, and millions “blood” dollars so freely to dehumanize the Deaf community of ideas, events, and organizations that have produced a set of mob mentality against the legal right of being Deaf. Where is the freedom for the Deaf community?
In 1992, Rush Limbaugh makes a comment: “The poor in this country are the biggest piglets at the mother pig and her nipples. The poor feed off the largess of this government and they give nothing back.” [“The way things ought to be”, page 40]
What a selfish asshole, right? The highest civilian, the Medal of Freedom. He was never part of the Deaf community. Period. Not even for the highest civilian. Limbaugh himself has been avoiding from the reality where all the things mean-spirited to not only a political figure but mock the Deaf community. We must end the perpetual punishment of cochlear implant industries.
