Gold Star Wife Says Kaepernick Should Visit Arlington National Cemetery To Learn ‘True Sacrifice’

The main reason so many Americans are upset about Colin Kaepernick’s Nike ad isn’t because it capitalizes on controversy, or even because Kaepernick is being rewarded for calling cops “pigs” and disrespecting the American flag. Instead, the root reason the ad is so infuriating is because privileged multimillionaire Kaepernick doesn’t at all know what it truly means to sacrifice everything – a fact that a Gold Star wife harshly pointed out on Fox & Friends Sunday.

Brittany Jacobs, widow of Marine Sgt. Chris Jacobs, told Fox News’s Pete Hegseth that it’s “hard and sad” for her to see the Nike ad campaign after her husband gave his life serving the country. “My husband did sacrifice absolutely everything for the flag, for the country and for all that it stood for,” she said. “To see someone who knelt before it be able to say that he sacrificed everything? It’s hard and it’s sad. It’s not right.”

Jacobs added, “There are so many great men and women in this country that have sacrificed everything. Colin Kaepernick, he’s not one of them.”

No, he’s certainly not – but he sure thinks he is. During the start of the regular NFL season on Sunday, Kaepernick posted a tweet thanking Miami Dolphins players Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson for kneeling during the National Anthem and “fighting for the oppressed!”

Kaepernick, Nike, and all the NFL players who continue to kneel have a serious lack of both respect and perspective; but Jacobs has a way to fix that. She told Hegseth that she wants Nike and Kaepernick to meet her and her son at Arlington National Cemetery “to see what true sacrifice is.”

“See what it is absolutely like to sacrifice everything for something that you believe in.”

Jacobs and her son, Christian, captured the hearts of country last year when they met President Donald Trump at Arlington National Cemetery.

Kaepernick lost a multi-million dollar NFL contract because he kept disrespecting the flag; that’s not sacrifice. Sacrifice is selflessly laying down your life for your country so that all Americans can continue to live free – even those who don’t understand or respect the price being paid.

  • Kap is pushing a Islamist agenda, his wife is related to Muslim Brotherhood members, a terrorist organization, in Egypt. I wish the House while it was still guaranteed a majority had declared in a Bill the fact the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group. The only owner of an NFL who joined the players on the field in protest was also a Muslim, is it merely a coincidence?
    What is especially hypocritical is the amount of fabricated hooey the socialist union democrats and other above criticism media darlings (BLM, LGBTs, etc.) of fake news was their hiding behind McCain's coffin to snipe at President Trump because he raised the flag too early. Half staffing the flag is a modern convention and not a set in stone rule. More blacks are killing each other for drugs and turf many times more often than police shootings.
    My nephew has an office in the news building that was shot up near Baltimore, the police have been so hamstrung that businesses are hiring their own security which is why more people were not shot in that incident. The private security responded efficiently and quickly saving lives. Not the Baltimore Police might have to confer with a lawyer before doing anything.
    Kap and the rest are irrelevant murderers with an agenda of lies.

  • Why didn;t another team pick up Kap's contract then?
    That explains why the 9ers dumped him. Maybe.
    I also have to consider the drop in NFL viewers as a result of the players bad taste. The hatred of President Trump when he raised the flag "disrespecting" McCain's memory, is another example of the left using the flag they don;t respect to generate political angst. In McCain's circumstances lowering the flag is a modern convention I doubt anyone could show you the exact place where its required like on Veteran's Day etc. Its like God in the Pledge of Allegiance. Standing for the National Anthem is different that is pretty much a longer tested convention. But Kap isn't merely sitting it out he is trying to use it to attack police procedures meantime Black youths are killing each other by the dozens more often than the Police do and Kap hasn't got a word to say and quite frankly his attacks have only made it more likely more black youths have died as a result because it puts the stress in the wrong place..

  • Stay tuned for this important correction:

    You say "Kaepernick lost a multi-million dollar NFL contract because he kept disrespecting the flag;" Not so. CK ended up riding the bench at San Francisco because he wasn't good enough. He didn't play at all the last two seasons. Once done with SF NO OTHER TEAM would pick him up because he isn't good enough. He didn't sacrifice anything, he simply couldn't earn anything any more.

  • It's disturbing that he has no respect for our country. His parents showed what loving someone is all about they did not love him because of his skin color they loved him for him. He's a race baiter because of his skin color, blacks are killing blacks more then cops are killing black. Take a look at Chicago.

  • If these NFL jackwagons really want to "know" what oppressed really is, we should send them to Iran, or North Korea and force them to stay there for one entire year; I'm just guessing they would be ever so grateful to return home, OR if they are totally "mentally damaged", they might just love it and want to stay! In either case, I'd say it's "good riddance".

  • The most disturbing element has to be browsing through the tweets on Kaepernick's tweeter page. There was one high school Jr. who said he was proud today to sit down during the pledge in his math class. Imagine if you were a student in that class that lost your father or mother fighting for that flag? Other tweets were equally disturbing and vial, this just caught my attention because it opens up other question like, what type of parents does this kid have? What is he being told by his teachers and most of all, are our schools even teaching kids about the founding sacrifices of those that died horrific deaths to bring us this thing called "freedom" and a Constitution written by men that have proven no equal. Then the hundreds of thousands of American patriots to preserve that freedom for all of us? Even with a few flaws, the United States Republic has proven to be the worlds greatest country in every aspect and our flag is a symbol that represents that greatness courtesy of those men and women. As such, I believe that our American flag is so much bigger than the adolescent actions and mentality of those that think they are making a political statement as opposed to the hideous display of selfish disrespect and ignorance that resembles a drip of water when it hits a red hot skillet.

  • Why can't I be so "oppressed" by being paid millions per year for playing an idiotic game? I'd sure be grateful for it.
