In a three-minute video, 12-year-old middle schooler and political activist CJ Pearson weighed in forcefully on the Giuliani-Obama controversy.
As you know, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani prompted a media firestorm when he declared that President Obama doesn’t love America based on his repeated criticism of the country. The mayor, who claimed his remarks prompted death threats, has subsequently refused to back down from his original statements, which were strongly denounced in the journalistic world and in general across the ideological spectrum, primarily but not necessarily just in liberal precincts.
Even many Obama foes have characterized Giuliani’s remarks as ill-advised. CJ Pearson, who the executive director of an organization called Young Georgians in Government, which purports to encourage young people to get involved in the electoral process regardless of political background, is in the mayor’s corner, however.
Pearson’s personal Facebook page indicates that he is “committed to fighting for conservative principles and engaging young people in the political process.”
In his presentation (see embedded footage below), CJ Pearson prefaced his remarks by saying that he is applauding Rudy Giuliani for comments about President Obama and that he has no intention of being politically correct.
“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 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… I hope that one day people will get enough guts to speak out against your downright hatred for this nation…”
Watch the entire CJ Pearson video and draw your own conclusions.
Irrespective of Giuliani’s controversial commentary, as the Inquisitr previously noted, most media outlets ignored then-Senator Obama’s accusation that President George W. Bush was “unpatriotic.”
In a July 3, 2008, campaign speech in Fargo, North Dakota, Obama gave this assessment of the incumbent president in the context of the federal budget deficit.
“The problem is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt… we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible, it’s unpatriotic.”
On Friday, when pressed, White House spokesman Josh Earnest claimed that Obama never questioned Bush’s personal love for the country. The national debt is now about $18 trillion.
