'You know nothing of what oppression is': Wounded Warrior blasts Kaepernick

(FOX NEWS)- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick caused a firestorm when he decided to sit during the national anthem at an NFL preseason game.

Everyone from 49ers fans to former NFL players have had strong opinions on Kaepernick's controversial statement.

A wounded warrior, however, delivered perhaps the most powerful criticism yet of the quarterback.

"Colin Kaepernick, I lost my legs and arm fighting in the U.S. military, the same military that I took an oath to defend our nation and flag from enemies foreign and domestic," Senior Airman Brian Kolfage wrote on Facebook. "Next time I hear the national anthem, I'll be sure to stand for the both us, since you feel that you've been oppressed."

"You know NOTHING of what oppression is. Every American has a choice and every opportunity to better their lives, this is America the greatest country on this planet."
