While on his radio show, Glenn Beck said he was offended by how many players did not put their hands over their hearts during the National Anthem before the Super Bowl.
He said he “shushed” his son and told him to put his hand over his heart when the song came on. “I was really offended by the sports players who were just hanging on their jersey,” Beck said.
Unfortunately this is just one of many signs that the NFL is unpatriotic. Also concerning to good Americans…
