Sounds more like the kid's overly impressionable, prone to following what's "in" and will inevitably change his mind again. Give it a decade or less, when he's responsible for making his own way. I'll bet some of those conservative ideas resurface.

Then again.....maybe not. Some never get there and truly 'grow up' despite what this ridiculous title states.

When my son was 13 he was a conservative also. Now at 21, he’s more conservative than he was at 13. I win.

NO, the kid is probably gay and has been indoctrinated into the gay lifestyle and has been convinced his perversion is normal

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.

This kid must’ve taken the Arianna Huffington/David Brock correspondence course.

“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.”

It happens in the best of families. Parents must have prayed for patience at some time. Zeitgeist is a mother on the weak minded.

The lefties kept after him for half a decade. I wonder what vile mind games they played on this poor kid before he broke like POW in a Korean prison camp.

I had an exchange with him on twitter yesterday after I commented on a Page Six story with the headline something like: Conservative Kid now swings Left to which I replied, “Conservative kid swings toward where the camera is.” The kid Jonathan swoops in and tells me I am wrong. Then I speculated he must be an attention whore because what kid ends up at the CPAC convention. He denied this emphatically so I did a simple search that produced a 2009 NY Times article that described Jonathan as a “child actor” and his mother as a former actress who now teaches acting.” After confronting Jonathan with these facts he continued to deny that he was just a guy who loves the spotlight.

Most kids get smarter as they get older, sounds like this one is getting dumber with age.

He’s been drinking the koolaid. Should have been drinking the TEA.

I’d wondered what happened to this kid when he just seemed to disappear after so much media exposure. Even Googled him a couple of times, but now it looks like he’s entering that “liberal at 20” phase that most kids go through.

Check back in when you’re 30, Jonathan, or maybe 40.
