Skip to comments.Conservative Wonderboy Grows Up, Embraces Obamacare and Philosophy
Posted on 07/03/2012 7:44:46 AM PDT by edpc
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. He's going to New York University in the fall. He name drops German philosophers. But his old fans can't accept that he's changed. "Come on, I was thirteen," he told Politico. "I was thirteen."

Then again.....maybe not. Some never get there and truly 'grow up' despite what this ridiculous title states.
I was sure this was going to be about Roberts.
Now I understand, freedom is slavery, I love Big Brother!
Yahoo reaks of liberalism.
Seen the headline about the hot summer and this is what global warming looks like?
It’s called SUMMER.
When my son was 13 he was a conservative also. Now at 21, he’s more conservative than he was at 13. I win.
Exactly.....like we’ve never experienced a heatwave in summer before. I can remember longer, hotter stretches when I was a kid and everyone was talking about a new Ice Age.
His parents must be so proud.
NO, the kid is probably gay and has been indoctrinated into the gay lifestyle and has been convinced his perversion is normal
I go with your assumption.
More than likely the kid has been recruited by a local pedophile.
Some of you might remember Jonathan Krohn, the adorable conservative whiz kid who gave speeches and wrote books and wowed every conservative adult he came across at the tender age of thirteen. Oh, wait, if youre stupid enough to only get your news from the corrupt Politico, you probably dont. Because up until today, Politico didn't give Mr. Krohn a whole lot of attention. In fact, according to Politico's own search engine, here's the sum total of the attention Krohn's received since stepping onto the national stage in 2009 at CPAC: two videos and an "Arena" plug after he apparently (the link is dead) became useful to Politico after accusing the GOP of "whining." For years this young conservative phenom was out there and unless its search engine is faulty, Politico couldn't bring itself to cobble together 300 words about him. That all changed today, though. Today Krohn earned himself a big, splashy, loving, affectionate, thousand-word Politico profile. Why? Because Krohn's a left-winger now.
Maybe conservatives shouldn’t be so willing to chuck their panties on the stage of every political superstar to wander across the stage.
“Conservative Wonderboy” indeed.
“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.”
Not just uncool, but “deeply uncool”. Puerile stupidity and propagandizing.
Conservativism is as cool as it gets.
I wouldn’t expect a vacuous 16 year old, or an ignorant “journalist” with the handle of “Elspeth”, to even remotely fathom that truism.
And now he is 15....
Jonathan Krohn, conservative prodigy and author of the book “Define Conservatism,” may not fit the typical Tea Party demographic — or some of their talking points.
“I don’t think Obama’s a socialist or evil, I just think he’s wrong and I disagree with him, he’s a leftist, that’s what they are in France and in Great Britain and in Canada,” Krohn told Neil Cavuto on the Fox Business Channel at a Tea Party rally in Atlanta Thursday.
“My dad thinks Obama is a socialist and all these extreme views,” Krohn added.
“There are crazies on both ends,” the teenager said when asked to respond about how liberals were painting conservatives as extremists. But, if people started to pursue fact based political arguments, Krohn said, people would “stop being obnoxious and stop spreading all this filth — some people are socialists or fascists and stuff.”
at 13, the brain washing hadn’t taken hold
