Earlier today, Rush Limbaugh announced that he’s been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.
For normal conservatives, this was depressing news.
However, for Never Trumpers like Ricks Wilson, such news was a golden opportunity for him to act like a pretentious hack.
Wilson tweeted, “I just heard the news that Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer. I’m going to show you how this should be done: I wish Rush a speedy and complete recovery from his cancer. Human being pro-tip: don’t wish cancer on *anyone*…even on your adversaries.”
I’m going to show you how this should be done:
I wish Rush a speedy and complete recovery from his cancer.
Human being pro-tip: don’t wish cancer on *anyone*…even on your adversaries.

Although the first part of Wilson’s statement was reasonable, Wilson went overboard by trying to “show you how this should be done.” As if people need special instruction on how to act decently in light of sensitive news.
This is especially rich when coming from an individual who wants to send people who exercise vaccine choice to the camps.
Wilson was taken to task on Twitter.
Ryan Petty the founder of Walk Up for Schools quote tweeted Wilson, “The rest of us rubes already knew how to do this.”

Sarah D. of Twitchy left Wilson with a tip: “Here’s a pro-tip for Rick: Next time you want to wish someone well, just wish them well and leave your self-righteousness out of it.”
Limbaugh has been one of the most explosive voices for conservatism in the past few decades.
His refusal to bow down to the high priests of political correctness makes him an inspiration for many on the Right.
On this day of sad news, the least people can do is pay their respects to Limbaugh and not try to boost their egos like Rick Wilson did.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
