The Navy SEAL who killed 9/11 leader Osama bin Laden joined the discussion.
He put every NFL player on blast about their childish behavior.
Navy SEAL Robert J. “Rob” O’Neill appeared this Sunday on Fox News and criticized everybody who is a part of NFL’s ongoing antics and had only negative comments about the originator Kaepernick. The war hero said in an interview on “Fox & Friends Weekend:” “As a veteran, it’s insulting.” He was vividly frustrated as he said: “There are different ways to protest. … When I see the flag, I think of Iwo Jima, I think of Normandy, I think of the guys who went into the bin Laden compound, I think of 9/11.”
O’Neill absolutely killed it with his comments. He was spot on and reflected on everything that’s wrong with these ongoing national protests: “It’s the wrong way to do it.” He continued his statement by saying: “Every widow I’ve talked to, every veteran I’ve talked to, regardless of what you say, you can’t take a knee for the national anthem and say, ‘But I support the troops.’ No, you don’t. Doesn’t matter what color you are when you’re in Afghanistan and get killed. You come back in red, white and blue.
But according to O’Neill, Kaepernick is the one to blame. He is the mastermind behind this fiasco that has been going for quite some time. O’Neill put Kaepernick on blast for what he started by kneeling down during the national anthem. The Navy SEAL had one rhetorical question: “Colin Kaepernick… where’s he playing today?” He wasted no time to give us the answer: “Oh, that’s right, he doesn’t have a job. He gave a protest about anti-discrimination wearing a Fidel Casto shirt. I mean, are you out of your mind?”
Watch O’Neill full statement down below:
Co-host Griff Jenkins hit the Navy SEAL with the perfect question. He asked O’Neill if Kaepernick’s attitude will change dramatically if he served in Afghanistan. The Navy SEAL put Kaepernick to bed with his response: “If we took Colin Kaepernick to Afghanistan he wouldn’t leave Green Bean Coffee,” O’Neill added, “He would stay on the base very, very safe, guarded by guys wearing the American flag that he hates.”
