Teenage conservative activist CJ Pearson just destroyed the Democrat’s new gun grabbing poster boy David Hogg in an epic video. Pearson took Hogg to school after the 17-year-old Parkland school shooting survivor called for an advertiser boycott of Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s show because she said he was whining about not being accepted to the colleges he wanted.

“@davidhogg111 wants to be a public figure, tear the #2A into shreds, and be the self-proclaimed voice of my generation but can’t take a little criticism from Laura Ingraham? There’s no safe spaces in politics, David. Grow up,” Pearson wrote in the caption of the video that he shared on Twitter.
“David Hogg is the self-appointed voice of my generation. An individual that put himself at the forefront of the gun control debate just a few weeks ago and continues to do so. This is a man who has chosen to live in the public light, and he can’t take criticism?” Pearson asked in the video.

“You know, I’m fifteen years old. I’m young, I’m black and Republican. I’m literally three things that make liberals lose sleep at night. They hate me. They hate me because I buck every single narrative that they would like the American people to believe,” Pearson said.
“‘Oh, if you’re young, you gotta vote Democrat.’ I say ‘no,’” he added. “‘Oh, if you’re black, you gotta be a Democrat.’ I say ‘no.’ They hate me, and because they hate me they call me things like ‘Uncle Tom,’ ‘House Negro,’ ‘sellout’ – all these hateful, deplorable things,” Pearson continued.
“But guess what? I turn the other cheek. Why? Because these people can tweet at me and criticize me all day long, but I fight for what I believe and I will continue to do so regardless of anything that I’m called,” he said.
Pearson advised Hogg that getting backlash when one takes such a divisive stance is to be expected. He said that some people are not going to like him when it is his goal to strip them of Constitutional rights “but you chose that life, David. Grow up! Grow up, David!”
Hogg did choose to become a public figure and the face of the anti-gun movement, appearing on television news shows and helping to organize school walkouts and The March For Our Lives, but when called on his activism, he has hidden behind calling himself a kid who should not be “attacked.” Pearson suggested that rather than attempting to ruin Ingraham’s career, Hogg should “go on her show and talk about the issues that you so faithfully believe in.”
“Oh, you won’t do that, will you? Because you are scared. So David, grow up or get out of the kitchen if it’s too hot for you. And, all I got to say is just sit down and shut up if you can’t handle it. Sorry, but not sorry,” Pearson said.
I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough. I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I️ in this fight. It’s time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children. https://t.co/H0yWs4zMGk

It remains to be seen whether Hogg will take Pearson’s advice. Right now, the only thing he has done is said that he won’t accept Ingraham’s apology and demanded that she disavow Fox News.
