You might recall the epic rant produced by 12-year-old C.J. Pearson which became a YouTube sensation after he criticized President Obama. His video has been viewed over 1.6 million times.Here’s the original video, in case you missed it. However, C.J. is a black conservative, and as my boss, LTC Allen West knows, that can get you into hot water.
Breitbart reports that Facebook has suspended young C.J.’s account due to “suspicious activity.”
“Last Friday, Pearson found that he could no longer post to his page. He asked his editor, Alan Davidson, to alert the public about what happened.”“I am having my Editor, Alan Davidson post on my behalf on this page while Facebook continues to lock me out,” the young man wrote.”
Facebook claims the lockout has nothing to do with Pearson’s political leanings. Instead, it has to do with Pearson’s age.
“You have to be 13 to have a Facebook account. This is a requirement, not a suggestion. He was locked out because he lied about his age, not because of the content,” a Facebook statement read.”According to the UK Daily Mail, “in a statement, Facebook said they were alerted to the fact that Pearson is 12 by a member of the public and acted accordingly.”
Ah yes, alerted by the “thought police.”
You know, here at allenbwest.com, we had a similar run-in with Facebook several months ago. We posted a picture of Democrat President Lyndon Johnson quoting his words regarding passage of the Civil Rights Act. One of those words was the n-word, something apparently Johnson used quite frequently.Our page was shut down for “hate speech.”
But apparently this page isn’t a problem.
Or this page.
Or this page.
And as far as having to be 13 years old to create a Facebook page, heck you can be a DOG and have a Facebook page.
C.J. Pearson says he will continue to fight to have his voice heard, and we certainly stand with him!
