Political activist CJ Pearson, 18, appeared on Newsmax with host Benny Johnson to discuss his epic smackdown of a liberal panelist on MSNBC in a contentious back and forth about former President Donald Trump.
Johnson kicked off the segment with high praise, “The definition of bravery is standing up, even when you’re outnumbered and when you may lose something. A video that struck us when we saw it is a video of a young man, an 18-year-old, who went into the lion’s den on a liberal show against an entire panel of liberals and called them out to their faces. You just gotta see it to believe it.”
MSNBC panelist Jane Elliott actually accused Pearson of being white even though he is black.
“He isn’t talking like a black man. He’s talking like a white man. He is doing the same thing that Mr. Trump has been doing for the last 30 years. You’re doing the same that Donald Trump has been doing and you are regurgitating what Donald Trump has put into your head. You need to stop that and start thinking for yourself,” she lectured.
“What is it with you and these commands? Do you think you get to tell black people what to do? Is that how you operate your daily life? Instructing black people how to think, how to act, what they can and cannot say?” Pearson replied. “Because I support a president, President Trump that brought about the lowest black unemployment in the nation in history. Criminal justice reform, the First Step Act. Millions of dollars navigated to HBCUs. Opportunity… economic opportunity, efforts that navigated commercial investments to inner cities that were long neglected.”
“And I understand, you are probably eager to tell me to shut my mouth right now because you hate it when black conservatives utter a single word, but I’m going to keep talking because these are facts, these are truths,” Pearson righteously stated to a shocked panel.

After actor James Woods saw the clip, he tweeted, “Okay, this is the future of America right here. Let’s pray this young man elects to participate in government. I’ll be donating to his campaign. @thecjpearson.”
Pearson, who is the president of the Free Thinker Project and hosts the “CJ Pearson Uncensored Podcast,” shared on Twitter a portion of a class he was forced to take at the University of Alabama in 2020 that featured this same woman as a speaker.

He was ready when he confronted her on MSNBC, making her look racist and foolish in the process.
Johnson continued the interview after the clip, stating, “CJ… great clip man! You know you showed in that clip more bravery than I think the vast majority of members of Congress. Elected federal office Republicans right now would not have been able to stand up to those types of absurdist attacks. I mean, what is it that gives you your bravery?”
“Benny, it’s my love of country. You know, I love this country so much so that I believe we should fight for this country. Freedom is not free. It’s given to us through the constant advocation for the values that make our country what it is today. A love of liberty and an appreciation for the government that governs least governs best. And the last thing I will allow to happen is for far-left radicals to take those values and take those principles and destroy them,” Pearson declared.
“So, it doesn’t matter if I want to go on some liberal show on MSNBC or Roland Martin there. They can tell me all day long that I don’t get to think for myself because I’m black but every single day I’ll prove them wrong. They don’t own me, Benny, and they never will and that’s what makes them so angry. They can’t control what I say. They can’t control what I believe and they can never tell me I shouldn’t love America,” he proclaimed to Johnson.
Pearson is not a political wallflower. He speaks his mind, especially when it comes to President Biden. He tweeted on Sunday, “The only thing @JoeBiden “built back better” was the Taliban.”

Pearson is fearless when standing up for what he thinks is right and he has little patience for any type of racism on MSNBC or any other liberal network. That also includes leftists who don’t love America.
Many on social media support Pearson and hope that he runs for office:
I’m so happy every time I see and hear this young man speaking truth to power and wish to hear other young people of all colors and nations love the truth, recognize our constitution, and our rights and to love our country & freedoms.
