Gold Star Mom Amanda Jacobs spoke at the pro-freedom, anti-socialist “Rally for Freedom” in the nation’s capital Independence Day morning and honored her heroic son.
“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.
While I agree with the first part of her comment, I have to disagree with the last part. Pat Tillman was a very talented NFL player who walked away from a multimillion-dollar contract to serve our country.
“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.

Thank you for your son, his sacrifice and your family’s.
Pat Tillman had his priorities together too.
Some men will never acquire that kind of bravery and character so they must put down those who did.
Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.
