A middle school student in Georgia has become an viral sensation after releasing a YouTube video Saturday that defends former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and argues President Obama’s stance on Islamic extremism is evidence he doesn’t love America.

“If you really did love America, you would call [Islamic State] what it really is: an assault on Christianity, an assault on America and downright hate for the American values that our country holds — freedom of speech, freedom of religion and every single thing that our country stands for,” CJ Pearson said in the clip, which has amassed nearly 300,000 views since Saturday.

“I hope that one day people will get enough guts to speak out against your downright hatred for this nation,” he said.

CJ’s video comes as Mr. Giuliani fields criticism for suggesting President Obama doesn’t love America and often sounds more like a critic than a supporter of his country.

“I want to applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama,” CJ said in the clip. “Here the truth of the matter: I don’t want to be politically correct. I don’t care about being politically correct at this point. President Obama, you don’t love America.

“Here’s what you need to realize, that here in America, we don’t back down to terrorists,” he said. “We fight them on their own battleground and we annihilate them to the very end. Here in America, we don’t allow the government to take away what we work for. … President Obama, if you really did indeed love America … you’d fight for our values domestic and abroad.”

According to his Facebook page, CJ is founder and executive director of the Young Georgians in Government group.

“CJ Pearson has considered himself a conservative since the mere age of 8, supporting John McCain in his 2008 Presidential Campaign,” his bio says. “CJ also founded the organization, Young Georgians in Government, because he strongly believes that all young people, regardless of political affiliation, must become involved in the political process to ensure a prosperous future here in America.”
