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."

It was a mistake to make this youth a poster child and give him a platform before he had a chance to demonstrate his alleged conservatives beliefs as an adult in the real world.
Scanning Krohn’s Twitter, it seems he’ making the rounds of the finest left wing nutcase talk shows: Hardball, Lawrence O’Donnell and others.
If he’s not gay, then he can probably score a date with Meghan McCain now.
Very possibly, but that overlooks how this generation looks at “gay rights.” To them it’s the equivalent of civil rights for blacks in the 60’s. I’ve seen 2 of my own kids switch from conservative to liberal over ‘gay rights,’ because some of their friends are gay. You see, in their estimation, public policy should be based on anecdotal evidence and how people feel about it.
Did your kids learn about what the blacks went through in the south during the civil rights? I have friends since collage and we part ways over gay marriage.
I talk politics with my kids all the time and take them to church too. I point out liberal hypocrisies and the vile acts they commit against conservatives who speak out on their beliefs. If your kids are liberal, they may be only getting one side of a situation.
My kids’ dad actually worked with the civil rights movement in the Mississippi Delta in the 60s, so they are fully aware of what that part was all about. They grew up as Rush Babies, were taken to conservative and Republican functions throughout their childhood. They have a very good grounding in the principles this country was founded on.
We can just hope that the foundation they were given will come into play as they mature. THO ... sometimes as I peruse threads here, I don’t want to identify with some who call themselves ‘conservatives,’ either. Vile people on both ends of the political spectrum.
Today's youth have replaced reason for emotionalism. "Symbolism over substance", as Rush would call it. It's lost on me how anyone can think gay marriage is a civil rights issue..... I also think it's offensive when gays compare it to how blacks have struggled in this country. They just don't compare.
I'm trying to teach me kids the history of liberalism and some of their banner causes they've supported. Once you get past their "we care" mantra, you'll see the evil for what it is.
Krohn is one of millions of young, brain-addled leftist twerps roaming around America today. He lacks critical thinking skills, and is simply one more spoiled brat who thinks he’s smarter than the wisdom of thousands of years of human experience. Bob
