The right may have found its next Jonathan Krohn in a Georgia teen who took to YouTube this weekend to accuse President Obama of not loving America.

CJ Pearson, a middle-schooler who already has his own political organization called Young Georgians in Government, kicked off the video saying that he wanted to eschew political correctness and “applaud” New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s (R) recent remarks about Obama.

“President Obama, you don’t love America,” Pearson said in the video. “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 that our country holds.”

He added that if Obama truly loved America, the President “wouldn’t try to take away what hard working Americans have worked for their entire lives.”

Pearson’s video was highlighted on a Fox News blog, The Blaze, and the Daily Mail. The BizPac Review called Pearson an “Internet sensation.” The Upworthy-style headline at the IJReview blared “12-Year-Old Student Gives Epic Answer to the Question: ‘Do You Really Love America, Obama?'”

Pearson, 12, campaigned for freshman Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and aspires to running for office one day, according to a recent profile of the conservative wunderkind published on the news website OZY. That day could come sooner rather than later as Pearson works to lower the minimum age for holding public office to 18 in the Georgia House and 21 in the state Senate.
