Remember in February of this year when Rudy Giuliani said this? “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country. With all our flaws we’re the most exceptional country in the world.”
Giuliani made these brutally honest and 100% correct comments while speaking in Manhattan to a group of conservative leaning businessmen and media folks.
It made a splash, and sent the left into spasms. But it was nothing compared to what followed less than a week later. A young black man, 12-year-old Coreco “C.J.” Pearson, became an internet sensation with his defense of the Mayor’s statements. Young Mr. Pearson became an instant darling of the right as he produced a YouTube video excoriating the president, doubling down on Giuliani’s remarks.
C.J. looked into the camera and stated: “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 – of freedom of speech – freedom of religion and everything our country stands for.”
It seems one of C.J.’s former teachers, Michael Garrison, told students that black conservative activist student C.J. Pearson thinks he’s “not worth saving in a fire,” and he “hates him.”
