Blowing up on those man-children with no sense of respect or decency was

Country music star Darius Rucker recently criticized left-wing protesters who disrespect the U.S. flag and National Anthem.

“I just saw grown men keep their hats in during the National Anthem and that really sucked,” Rucker said.

Rucker also praised fellow country star Chris Stapleton for his rendition of the National Anthem ahead of the Super Bowl.

“Awesome job Chris Stapleton u killed it,” Rucker added.

Many people responded to Rucker on social media in agreement.

“Agree, I get so p****d off,” one person commented. “Both my grandfathers cough in WWII and my dad enlisted. It’s rude and disrespectful. You always should remove your hat!!!”

“You are so right!” another person said. “I was sad to see that, too. Loved seeing you in my area, long ago. Love you even more, now!”

“Lack of respect in this country never ceases to amaze. @ChrisStapleton is the awesome…est!!!!”

“Terrible that they didn’t remove their hats. Stapleton was remarkable!”

“If my dad ever saw me leave my hat on or not cover my heart he would in his words, “wear that rear end out.””

“Chris was outstanding. Darius, it just goes to show how some people have no clue what patriotism even means. They’ve missed the boat completely!”

“Seeing it more and more at sporting events even here in Canada. My boys learned this lesson early in their young lives.”
