Last week we brought you the wonderful story of young Mr. CJ Pearson, a brilliant young Georgia boy who gave an eloquent defense of Mayor Rudy Giuliani on YouTube. It was in the wake of Mayor Giuliani’s comments about whether or not President Obama loved our nation, and young Mr. Pearson added his voice to the conversation. The video, which he shared on his Facebook page, went viral in a matter of hours as Americans all over the country enjoyed his perspective on Mayor Giuliani’s thoughts.
The heart of Pearson’s argument – “Today I just want to applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama. 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.”
Sadly, the fascists who run Facebook apparently don’t appreciate when people offer dissenting views of President Obama’s emotional connection to our nation. Facebook has decided to shut down CJ’s account with no explanation as to the reason for doing so. The timing is suspicious considering the popularity of CJ’s recent post, and while he doesn’t know if Facebook banned him for his anti-Obama post, he does think the whole situation stinks.
“If they are going to stifle free speech and hinder the First Amendment, then I think there should be necessary repercussions about that. I think the point is this: When a person decides to speak up, their voice shouldn’t be hindered because of someone disagreeing.”
Bad form, Facebook. Very bad, indeed.
