Commentary: "Mic Drop" Obituary Challenges Those Left Behind

 

Steve Deace, writing at the Conservative Review, highlights a recent obituary which, though comical, also sounds a clarion call to our culture to stand up for what we believe in:

Mary Anne Noland went full William Wallace with her last, dying breath earlier this week.

Shouting ‘freedom’ to a people much in need of both backbone and inspiration. May true patriots everywhere now go, and do likewise.

Cancer may have thwarted the Virginian’s life at 68 years, but her spirit has now transcended the grave. Noland simply wasn’t about to leave the art of political trolling to betas decked out in hipster glasses, skinny jeans, and insufferable smugness while putting down heaters and Code Red at an alarming rate in mom’s basement. No, with literally her last gasp she achieved immortality.

Thus was it written to begin her obituary published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God.

Mic. Dropped.
