Georgia teen CJ Pearson says Obama doesn’t love America in video, Facebook suspends account

Facebook has suspended the account of Coreco “C.J.” Pearson, a middle school student from Georgia after he created a YouTube video entitled: “President Obama: Do you really love America?”

In the video, Pearson, 12, defended former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for saying that President Obama does not truly love America. He also accused him of complacency towards terrorists.

“Today, I just want to applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama,” the student said in his YouTube post.

“President Obama, you don’t love America. If you really did love America, you would call ISIS what it really is: An assault on Christianity, an assault on America and a downright hate for the American values our country holds. Here in America, we don’t back down to terrorists. We fight them on their own battleground and we annihilate them to the very end.”

The video has received over 1.6 million views since it was first posted, and the teen has been attacked and praised.

Soccer player Ryan Mack even chimed in to criticize the youth: “Being ill-informed and ignorant knows no age. The President has done more to fight and eliminate terrorism than any other President in history. Under Bush we were attacked by Al Qaeda…under Obama we decimated Al Qaeda (judging by numbers of leadership killed including their leader Bin Laden).”

Pearson made an appearance on Fox and Friends Weekend and shared that Facebook has decided to suspend his account due to “suspicious activity.”

“If they are going to stifle free speech and hinder the First Amendment, then I think there should be necessary repercussions about that,” he said.

Pearson added that people should not be kept from expressing their beliefs just because somebody else does not agree with them.

“I think the point is this: When a person decides to speak up, their voice shouldn’t be hindered because of someone disagreeing,” he said.
