Mark Levin remembers Rush Limbaugh as ‘a tremendous patriot’: ‘We’ve lost a voice like no other’

The world was shocked to hear Wednesday that conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh had died following a year-long battle with lung cancer. He was 70.

According to the Washington Examiner, fellow radio host Mark Levin called into Fox News on Wednesday to pay tribute to Limbaugh’s life and legacy, calling his late friend a “tremendous patriot” in a heartwrenching talk with Fox’s Harris Faulkner.

The loss of a patriot

Levin and Limbaugh were reportedly friends for 25 years. On Wednesday, Levin said the conservative icon loved his audience and his country.

“We lost a tremendous patriot,” Levin told Faulkner, according to Fox News. “I want your audience to know how much he profoundly loved them… If you thought somebody needed help, he would help them. Nothing like what the liberal media has tried to do to him.”

Limbaugh began his radio career back in 1988, the Examiner reported.

“I just want him to be remembered the way he should be remembered,” Levin said of the radio host, “a tremendous patriot of this country who refused to accept the attacks that came against this country from within.”

Levin went on:

[Limbaugh] refused to accept the ideological changes in this country. He defended the traditions of this country, and he spoke for tens of millions of us and, you know, I’ve met a lot of smart people in my life, dealt with a lot of smart people, never smarter than Rush, never wiser, and never kinder.

“A tremendously sad day”

Later in his talk with Faulkner, Levin said “this is a tremendously sad day for those who love this country and…for those who salute the flag, who embrace the military and law enforcement.”

“It’s a tremendously sad day because we’ve lost Thomas Paine,” he added. “We’ve lost a voice like no other and likely will never be again.”

Levin said it’s especially tragic to lose Limbaugh “at a time when we need a voice like his.”

“He fought to the bitter end,” Levin said of his longtime friend.

It’s hard to argue that Rush Limbaugh didn’t have a profound impact on the nation — and Limbaugh’s estimated 43 million listeners are no doubt mourning the loss of such a beloved conservative icon. He will be greatly missed.

  1. Rush was one in million. Listened him very often on the radio here in Maine. Were realy going to miss him. Prayer s to his wife and loved ones.

  2. Rush was a true patriot and an icon that will define what talk show hosts should pattern themselves after. Smart, humorous, talented over the moon, he had it all. Let’s keep his work as the standard for talk shows.

  4. True Patriots will all agree that Rush Limbaugh will be greatly missed! I’m grateful to be a recipient of his great insight and knowledge. May he be crowned from on high for his diligence and enduring love for freedom and our beloved country. A great defender of truth!

  5. Rush was a radio hero.
    The Dems made fun of him today and used words that he no one should have to hear.
    How do we stop the rotten Dems?

  6. Mr. Levin, we all know that Rush Limbaugh will be missed, but I hope you will be one of the “torchbearers” and continue your programs with the same mission as Rush Limbaugh did.

    The Republican party needs to stop “wimping around”, get someone like Mr. Hawley or Mr. Gaetz to lead and retire Mitch McConnell. No more deals. The Republicans need to file blizzards of lawsuits in order to block bad legislation.

  7. Yes, stand up & fight back. As mb says, stop wimping around. You can’t keep what you didn’t earn. Stealing is not winning, we have the numbers on our side. Let’s act like it. Biden has no mandate. Yes, file all the suits possible & this stuff cannot be Constitutional. Time to hit Biden & the Dems with some reality questions. Who is writing all this anti American stuff he is signing. When is he going to put this stuff before the people & Congress & discuss in a normal way what is the purpose of it & how does it help America? Why is it all in secret, no input & all, I mean all, 100% negative impact? Can Biden actually communicate what he is doing & why? I say he cannot & it’s Obama’s wishlist.

    1. Rush WE WILL MISS YOUR FIGHTING SPIRIT THE COWARD RINO POLITICIANS HAVE COWED DOWN TO THE ESTABLISHMENT IF YOU TRULY WANT CHANGE IT IS TIME TO RETIRE THE FOSSIL POLITICIANS!

  8. Rush… you were attacked personally, physically and spiritually. Now you are resting in Jesus’ arms. Intercede for us against all evil.✝️🇺🇸
