Skip to comments.Conservative Wonderboy Grows Up, Embraces Obamacare and Philosophy
Posted on 07/03/2012 12:12:46 PM PDT by Uncle Slayton
Like so many teenagers, Jonathan Krohn says he cringes when he thinks of some of the deeply uncool things he said when he was 13. Unlike most teenagers, Krohn said those things on camera in a speech at the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference, making him a YouTube sensation. Now? Krohn tells Politico's Patrick Gavin he's not a conservative anymore. He likes gay marriage and Obamacare.

Nah, he’s an early careerist. He sees the way the wind is blowing and it’s blowing against conservatives.
And remember: there’s nothing more conformist than a teenager.
Well, he “likes gay marriage”. That could be part of it.
So glad to know he now is pro-sodomite and socialist. An education wasted on a punk.
No biggie...there are more people who turn conservative from liberal than vice-versa.
Alternate headline; “College indoctrination destroys another child’s potential”
Nothing more, nothing less.
Once he has to earn a living and pay his own bills & taxes, he'll come back around.
Well he obviously hasn’t “grown up” yet.
All he had to do is remain in public school, how can most kids resist the indoctrination and the “peer pressure” coordinated by the adults to conform? Parents usually don’t stand a chance against this weight, it’s rare parents and rare children who have the sense of self to resist. Was this kid a public school case?
I wish I could make a “roll eyes” icon.
I blame conservatives.
What kind of moron puts a child on stage just because he happens to be saying what we want to hear at a given moment?
He’s obviously been homosexually raped. Investigate his teachers and find which child molestor did this to him.
Many of those same kids lack the genuine wisdom to realize what a blessing they were given and instead choose to conform to the idiocy of their peers and second rate teachers and professors who fill their heads with mush.
Krohn has chosen to discard his blessings and take the fork down the low road. Maybe he will find his way back after his brain is sufficiently scrambled from drugs and promiscuous sex.
Wait until he starts paying taxes.
The kid effectively said, “Read my lips, no new taxes.”
Just as the the Rats did everything in their power to make George H.W. Bush raise taxes after that campaign promise, the Lefties probably did everything in their power to turn the kid to support their cause. I’ll bet he is being paid handsomely by the Left for his efforts.
He’s mastered picking up turds by the clean end.
My 16 year old is a Libertarian. On some issues more conservative than me. Mostly we agree. I helped but he mostly thinks for himself.
Young people are bound to go through a lot of changes before they reach adulthood. At some point they decide they're missing out on something, so they go in another direction. It takes a while before they figure out who they are and what they want to be.
It was a mistake to make Jonathan something more than a ordinary 14 year old. But probably not that much of a mistake. He had his moment 3 years back and afterwards he was pretty much forgotten. He has another moment today, and then he goes back to being an ordinary 17 year old.
Left wing chicks are easy.
Kant and the German idealists is a first step to rejection of both reality as knowable and objective principles of reason, which leads altruism and collectivism,which leads to the statism and socialism of libtards.
“Kant and the German idealists is a first step to rejection of both reality as knowable and objective principles of reason, which leads altruism and collectivism,which leads to the statism and socialism of libtards.”
So that’s what happened. Now I’m not surprised.
He’s 17. Still not grown up.
When he creates something and pays taxes then we will talk. Until then, he’s just a child.(by today’s standards not John Quincy Standards)
“I blame conservatives. What kind of moron puts a child on stage just because he happens to be saying what we want to hear at a given moment?”
Yep. I know a few of those.
Also wondering if this isn't a very Atlanta, GA story: people who were quite conservative where they came from finding themselves liberal by rural Georgia standards.
At 13, I considered myself a Democrat but wasn't interested in politics--the realm of stuffed shirts and smoke-filled rooms, as I saw it. But the Cold War, the "Tet Offensive" and the Pueblo incident woke me up, and two and a half months before I turned 17, I declared myself a Republican.
If he likes to read German philosophers, he ought to read Wilhelm Röpke, Walter Eucken, Franz Böhm, and Alexander Rüstow, and some Austrian philosophers such as Ludwig von Mises.
The kid is to be congratulated; having descended into stupidity and corruption, he will never again be lonely in America.
Wonder if he’ll legally change his name to Elian Krohn?
At 8 I was conservative.
At 12 I was conservative.
At 16 I was conservative.
At 20 I was conservative.
At 24 I was very conservative.
At 28 I was very conservative.
I am still very conservative.
I’m pretty sure I could reverse all that with an afternoon at the shooting range.
Just don't be severely conservative!
Well some people are late bloomers lol
At 8 years old the first political though I remember was that Carter MUST lose.
Then came Reagan...I was in heaven....after Reagan not so much with Bush 1, Dole, Bush 2, McCain (are you kidding me???) and now Romney.
I never though Reagan would be once in a lifetime choice.
That whole scene was uber-creepy. Kids spouting politics is just wrong.
That kid was like Mini Hannity.
