Mr. Pig Socks must think he’s pretty important and heroic. This Gold star mom sets him straight.
While Colin Kaepernick busily makes a name for himself denigrating everything about America and those who keep us safe, at home and abroad, other families are coming together to celebrate the best of America.
This includes those who paid the supreme sacrifice in defending America.
At the Rally For Freedom, Gold Star Mom Amanda Jacobs stood up and told the nation what ordinary men and women who wear the nation’s flag are generally too modest to say about themselves.
They are usually too busy just ‘doing their duty’.
“And when I look at this country today — and I wanted to say this loud so many times: Colin Kaepernick was getting paid $14 million a year to throw a ball. My son died for $14,000 a year, and he’s given more than any football player, any athlete has ever given,” she said at the rally through tears.
“These two children right here can look at a flag and say, ‘That’s uncle Jacob,’” she said, pointing to her two grandchildren who were there alongside her.
That’s what we are here for today — not because, you know, I wanted to be a Gold Star mom. I got Gold Stars in school for making grades. But this Gold Star that I wear every day isn’t for me. It’s because of what my son chose to do — without my permission, trust me. I have a 17-year-old that is doing the same thing, and it’s because of what they believe. I hear these Marines that come to my house — they stay for four days, you know I’ve got 30 Marines that sleep on my floor, and it’s great — but they tell us that the only thing that kept them going is when they could look up and see that flag. They had hope to go back home to, and a hope that this country was going to change for the better — not for the worse.
She ended quoting powerful words from her hero son: “My son’s words were, ‘Mom, I’m not fighting for the ones in the White House. I’m fighting for you and my brothers in this yellow house.‘”
“And that’s what it’s about so let’s keep America free,” she closed.
Here is a moving video of Amanda Levy remembering her son.
So, while Colin complained he’s oppressed over being criticized for spouting an anti-American ideology that would have made the Soviets proud, people like Lance Cpl. Christopher Phoenix-Jacob Levy and those who served alongside of him were laying down their lives, or suffering life-changing injuries — to preserve the kind of nation the rest of us celebrate every Independence Day — and hopefully every day.
In other words, suck it Colin: America is awesome.
