C. J. Pearson

His name is C. J. Pearson.

He is 12 years old, from the state of Georgia and, like Obama, he is part-black.

In a 3-minute video uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 21, 2015, Pearson applauds former New York governor and mayor Rudy Giuliani who, unlike other Republican élites, actually has the guts to speak the truth — that Obama does not love America. For that, Giuliani has been roundly attacked.

Pearson’s video has gone viral and has received nearly 1.3 million views.

This is what Pearson said:

“Hi, my name is C. J. Pearson. Today I want to just applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama . . . . I don’t care about being politically correct at this point.

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 that our country holds: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and every single thing that our country stands for. If you love America, President Obama, you wouldn’t try to take away what all working Americans have worked for their entire lives. You wouldn’t do this if you love the people of America . . . .  I definitely do hope that one day other people would get enough guts to speak out against your downright hatred for this nation. . . .”

But this boy is now being punished by Facebook for his video.

Joe Newby reports for Examiner.com, Feb. 28, 2015, that Pearson discovered that his personal Facebook page was locked.

In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com on Saturday, Pearson said he received a message from someone about 6 a.m. Friday. That’s when he learned his account and page had been locked for “suspicious activity.”

He jumped through all of Facebook’s hoops, but wasn’t able to recover his account. So he created a new profile to take its place. His public page was not affected, but he can no longer administer the page. Fortunately, a friend is helping to post links to that page.

Facebook did not respond to Pearson’s requests for help, nor would they tell him what the alleged suspicious activity was. Examiner.com reached out to Facebook, but the social media giant has so far refused to respond.

Pearson said he is working on legislation to lower the age of those serving in the state House and Senate. The legislation, which is set to be the subject of a hearing on Monday, would lower the age of House members from 21 to 18, and lower the age of state Senators from 25 to 21. Pearson said he was using Facebook to line up witnesses for the hearing, but Facebook’s actions have made that more difficult. He can’t read any messages sent to his old profile and the old page doesn’t show up.

This is not the first time Facebook has blocked conservatives for questionable reasons. In March 2013, for example, Facebook banned Florida blogger Diane Sori for 30 days over something she never posted. Facebook has banned conservatives for clicking “like” or simply saying “thank you.” Conservative pages have also been targeted and shut down for questionable reasons while other pages have been allowed to flourish. Articles mentioning Islam were falsely flagged as “unsafe” and pages critical of Islam have been removed over false claims of inappropriate material.
