Mike Adams Death – The longtime columnist for conservative news outlet, Townhall, Mike Adams, 55, was found dead at his North Carolina home on Thursday, July 23, 2020.
As of Friday morning, no details surrounding his death have been released.
In Townhall words: “For the last 20 years Adams appeared regularly on these pages in defense of conservative principles. But free speech and abortion were the issues he was most passionate about. Adams had long tussled with the University of North Carolina – Wilmington, where he was a professor of criminology, set to retire Aug. 1, over the opinions he expressed at Townhall, in speeches, and on social media.
Over the years I admired his courage speaking out as a conservative on a secular campus, where colleagues and students long sought his removal. So late last year I reached out about writing a feature on him for our VIP readers. Below you’ll find that story about how he came to be the conservative Christian warrior he was.
In submitting one of his last columns for us, which excoriated Governor Roy Cooper’s lockdown of North Carolina, Adams borrowed Todd Beamer’s famous words on Flight 93, “Let’s roll!”
Adams was scheduled to retire on August 1, 2020, and was to receive a settlement of $504,702.76 which was to be paid out over the course of 5 years to cover lost salary and retirement benefits.
Adams was born in Columbia, Missouri, and raised in Clear Lake, Texas.
The cause of his death was not provided.
