The boy isn't old enough to keep a Facebook page. FB pulled him because of that, not because of his support of Rudy.

But it is entirely plausible that someone turned him in for daring to support Guiliano.

C.J. Pearson, I may not agree with everything you have to say, but I support your right to say it.

I see great things for you one day, and seeing your video renews my hope for the future generations of Americans. You are bright, thoughtful, and articulate, which is something I sadly dont encounter much from youth in my day to day experience.

I can see you having the ability to move people, so even if your political aspirations dont work out, I can see you as the leader of a congregation, or actually performing well in any office you hold.

Speak your mind, son. Once you are an adult you might not enjoy such freedom of speech. Fear can easily mute someone when what they say can effect their ability to feed their families. God bless you, and best wishes in achieving your goals.

(Politically, my husband describes me as either a Democrat with conservative tendencies, or a Republican with liberal tendencies, lol.)

Pretty much explains why a 12 year olds account was closed.
I agree.

Facebook probably closed his account because it was illegal for him to have an account.

This is why, no sinister plan to repress free speech. The OP wanted to create such a dramatic response for nothing. Queens and beans, always have schemes.

How about the fact that Guiliani is a racist who instructed police to treat black communities in NY like a foreign country under occupation. Up until maybe a year ago the NYPD an official policy of stopping and frisking random black men indiscriminately just for walking down the street. This kid would definitely not be defending him if he was 35 and lived here under that tyrant.

As others have pointed out, he broke the terms of service by making the account so that's the most likely reason. If full-grown adults can call Obama a Kenyan, communist, atheist ni**** without getting their pages locked then this little kid's political views had nothing to do with his profile getting locked. And come on, he's 12. He has no political views. He has his parent's political views.

As a conservative and libertarian minded individual not fond of the current president, not fond of many government programs I receive a fair number of "opinions on a second-by-second basis" (and once in a while send them - though with lessening regularity).

It was almost certainly because of being 12 years old, not because out of millions of conservatives posting they singled one lone kid.
