Member Group : Media Reports

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) â€" Republican state Sen. Mike Regan says he will introduce a Senate resolution condemning the demonstrations that took place during Sunday’s NFL games.

Regan (R-Cumberland/York) called the actions of players who refused to stand during the national anthem “anti-American.” He also said players were enabled and encouraged by team owners, general managers, and coaches.

“It was not a harmless exercise of First Amendment rights,” said Regan in a press release Monday. “It was a deliberate, orchestrated effort to disrespect the anthem and flag of the United States of America, and it cannot go unrebuked.”
