CJ Pearson, a politically active 12-year-old from Augusta, Georgia, says he has been locked out of his Facebook account after posting a video saying President Barack Obama doesn't love America.
Pearson, who serves as the executive director of Young Georgians in Government, posted the video on YouTube and Facebook on February 21. As of late Sunday afternoon, the YouTube video had received 1.3 million views.
But when he woke up Friday and tried to log in to Facebook, his account was locked. He told WRDW-TV on Sunday
his personal account is still locked, but not his public page.
Pearson had his editor post an update on that page for his fans.
"I am having my Editor, Alan Davidson post on my behalf on this page while Facebook continues to lock me out. The 1st amendment is obviously not a big concern to the powers at be at Facebook, but we will continue to fight back!" Pearson wrote.
In the video, titled, "President Obama: Do you really love America?" Pearson praises former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani for a controversial statement he made last week that Obama does not love America in the same way most people do.
"Here's the truth of the matter. I don't want to be politically correct. I don't care about being politically correct at this point. President Obama, you don't love America," Pearson says.
"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 values our country holds, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and every single thing our country stands for," Pearson continued.
"If you loved America, President Obama, if you loved America, you wouldn't try to take away what hard-working Americans have worked for their entire lives," he said. "You wouldn't do this if you loved the people of America."
