By now, you’re probably familiar with CJ Pearson. He’s a self-described “conservative activist” from Georgia whose Obama-eviscerating YouTube videos have racked up well over 2 million views. He’s also black. ...And he’s 12 Years Old.
Just last week, he released a clip attacking the President’s eagerness to exploit tragedy in the service of the left’s long-standing gun control agenda. That video alone has over half a million hits and it’s still trending. Yesterday, he appeared again. This time, he spoke directly to President Obama, and he threw down the gauntlet.
CJ Pearson has challenged Obama to “A meeting. An interview.” As he puts it: “I want to talk to you about your vision for this nation. I want to talk about the vision that you hold for my generation. I also want to talk about my vision for my generation with you. Because, like you, Mr. President, I want to give my generation some change that they can believe in.” Pearson says he wants an honest dialogue with the President because he wants “to ensure that the people in my generation have something to look forward to.”
He asks the President to look past the fact that they don’t agree politically, and “look at the sincerity of my words - and the sincerity of my heart.”
So far, the White House has not responded.
Here’s Mr. Pearson:
Now, I’d love to believe that we had a President who was capable of seeing past ideology and party, but Barack Obama has proven - time and time again - that this just isn’t the case. This middle-schooler represents an ideological landmine for the President. We’d be shocked if he honors this request.
Sadly, the President will probably stick to the interviews he feels are important.
He’ll talk to sports radio announcers. He’ll take softballs from sycophants in the news media. He’ll even grant an interview to this woman:
What Obama won’t do is discuss legitimate issues with an intelligent twelve-year-old who has a far-better handle on constitutional matters than he does.
