I knew there was a problem with 13-year-old C. J. Pearson when he shot onto the national stage after ripping Barack Hussein Obama. Now, it's come to light that the self-proclaimed "conservative" teen is pushing a constitutionally ineligible candidate, Marco Rubio.
In an interview with TheBlaze, Pearson said that he identifies more as an independent than a conservative.
"I'm not interested in being a champion of a cause that turns a blind eye to racial discrimination and police brutality in America," Pearson, 13, said in a statement. "I also don't want to be the 'anti-Obama kid.' I want to be the kid who fought for real change and worked with both sides to achieve a better America."
He also said that though he is fiscally conservative, he is socially liberal when it comes to issues like abortion. I'll add that it probably won't be long till young Pearson will be just as liberal when it comes to sodomy.
"I'm tired of labels. I'm ready for solutions to the issues facing the American people," Pearson added.
Well, to a certain degree, I agree with him. We need solutions, not just people pointing out the problems, but being socially liberal when it comes to abortion is not part of a solution. It's part of the problem.
In fact, one cannot be fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I mean, they can, but they are opposed to one another. Star Parker wrote how both marriage and abortion are not just social issues, but economic issues, and I agree with her assessment. She wrote:
There's a social agenda — issues like abortion and marriage. And there's an economic agenda — issues like federal spending, debt, taxes, and government programs like entitlements.
It's usually assumed that these two agendas don't have anything to do with each other.
But it's simply false that we can consider the challenges of our federal budget without thinking about the state of the American family, our birthrates and abortion.
The family and children are a part of the economic fabric of any society. To attack one, is not only detrimental to the society, but is communist to the core (See R. J. Rushdooney's Law & Liberty).
While Pearson has endorsed Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for president and worked with constitutionally ineligible Senator Ted Cruz's (R-TX) campaign, he held his real endorsement for a known RINO (Republican in name only) and constitutionally ineligible presidential candidate for the GOP, Marco Rubio.
"Right now, the best candidate tackling race relations that I, with my beliefs could get behind, is [Florida Sen.] Marco Rubio," Pearson told TheBlaze.
In fact, Pearson said he couldn't see himself working with any other campaign in this election cycle.
Pearson said that working for Cruz's campaign had nothing to do with his decision to distance himself from the conservative label and admonished that he is "no Jonathan Krohn" — the 13-year-old who spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2009 but denounced conservatism just a few years later while attributing his previous views to his "naivety."
To those who may criticize Pearson for once again changing his mind, Pearson said, "they're smoking too much."
"I have long been a champion of conservative principles," Pearson said. "I've simply decided to remove a label and listen to both sides."
Let's be honest, there are a lot of people on the political stage who claim to be "conservative," and by that, they mean to communicate that they hold to traditionally Christian American values and morality and that they uphold the Constitution. Often, more times than not, they do not hold to any of that, and so, I can understand some people's delusions. However, though I really was never impressed with Pearson, his statements do need to be called out for what they are, and again, the claim of being fiscally conservative and socially liberal is an oxymoron. Count Mr. Pearson as another sellout to socialism, because that is exactly where he is headed.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
