Rush Limbaugh: The Left Is Trying to Do ‘Great Damage to the NFL’

Rush Limbaugh talked with Sean Hannity tonight and both of them blasted the NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

Limbaugh––who gave Hannity the idea to invite players on his show––said that liberals have “hijacked the NFL” to do “great damage” to it.

“What does the NFL stand for? Masculinity, strength, toughness. So what are they doing to it? You go to college campuses now and you’ll find classes on how to take masculinity out of men. It’s actually happening… It’s patriotic, you’ve got the flag, you’ve got the anthem, you’ve got uniformed military personnel. All the things that the left wants to erase from this country. They don’t like displays of patriotism, strength, rugged individualism, and that’s why I think the players are being used here.”

He also said that corporate America is fooling itself if it thinks that America is a more liberal nation.
