Video: The obligatory “Jonathan Krohn now more or less a liberal” clip

posted at 8:24 pm on July 9, 2012 by Allahpundit

I can’t believe anyone’s grumbling at this kid for switching sides. He’s 17. His political path will take some turns on the way to adulthood; most people’s paths do. We had some fun with his big splash at CPAC but it was clear enough that he was doing shtick, albeit shtick at an especially precocious level. I’ll bet that, at 13, he thought he knew everything; now 17, he probably thinks he knew nothing then but knows a lot more today. How do you think he’ll feel at 21? I’d give even odds that in five years he’ll be a libertarian looking to intern for Reason.

Anyway. The obvious lesson here: We must start vetting our 13-year-old pundits more closely, my friends.

My star role worked out well for a while. I didn’t have to question any of the talking points I’d made in my speech, and I got to drone on and on about them at numerous Tea Parties and other conservative gatherings. I felt justified in my beliefs if for no other reason than no one actually told me I was wrong. Instead, men like Bill Bennett and Newt Gingrich hailed me as the voice for my generation and a hope for America…

I was tired of being a part of the ideological warfare this country is so caught up in. I was tired of the right using me as an example of how young people “get” what they’re talking about — when it’s obvious that I didn’t get what I talking about at all. I mean, come on, I was between 13 and 14 when I was regurgitating these talking points! What does a kid who has never paid a tax bring to the table in a conversation about the burden of taxes? What does a healthy child know about people who can’t afford healthcare because of preexisting conditions? No matter how intelligent a person might be, certain political issues require life experience; they’re much more complicated than the black and white frames imposed by partisan America. (And no, my mother and father didn’t write my material for me. You’d have to be as paranoid as the birthers to think someone’s parents would put them up to all that. Have a bit more faith in the human race, man!) I was just a 13-year-old kid spitting up the nonsense he’d learned. In the future, a good rule of thumb might be: If you’re not old enough to have consensual sex, you’re probably not old enough to make consequential political statements.

B-b-b-but … he was the chosen one. Exit question: If he writes a piece for NRO when he’s 21 insisting that, no, in hindsight, he had everything right when he was 13 after all, he’ll be forgiven for this, right? C’mon.

Here’s an idea. Stop listening to children as if they have anything to add to the political conversation. They don’t… which is why they can’t vote, drive, or drink. They can’t be trusted to make rational decisions.

It was pathetic this kid got so much attention to begin with. I don’t know if I called this or not, I don’t remember caring enough to make a call, but 13, 17, he still has NO life experience and nobody can truly understand Conservatism until they have to provide for themselves.

This kid got a book published at 13 which no doubt helped him get into NYU – it was obvious that this was the plan all along by his parents.

“The liberal girls won’t sex me up as a conservative and the conservative girls have standards.” – Johnathan Krohn

NotCoach on July 9, 2012 at 8:28 PM

Exactly.

Excerpts from my comments on 2 earlier headline threads:

“One of the first things that changed was that I stopped being a social conservative,” said Krohn. “It just didn’t seem right to me anymore…”

He likely followed his hormones and feelings, and social conservatism didn’t feel right to him anymore.

ITguy on July 2, 2012 at 8:27 PM

With liberals, it’s always about “feelings”.

his desire for premarital sex had altered his thinking. Based on this current link, I’d say the answer is, “Yes.”

I was just a 13-year-old kid spitting up the nonsense he’d learned. In the future, a good rule of thumb might be: If you’re not old enough to have consensual sex, you’re probably not old enough to make consequential political statements.

So he’s a man of the world now, and just sooo much more “mature”, right? Wrong.

ITguy on July 9, 2012 at 11:19 AM

He changed his worldview to fit his sexual desires.

ITguy on July 9, 2012 at 8:40 PM

The kid’s obviously not a jock, and he’s no heart throb, so what were his options if he ever wanted to ‘date’? He had to find a way to appeal to 16 year old girls. If you’re not a jock, and you’re not particularly good looking, that pretty much leaves the ‘sensitive’ type… AKA LIBERAL.

You all know the saying: “If you’re not a liberal when your 20 you’ve got no heart. If you’re still a liberal at 40 you’ve got no brain.”

Let’s check back in with Johnathan when he’s 40 or so.

thatsafactjack on July 9, 2012 at 8:40 PM

(And no, my mother and father didn’t write my material for me. You’d have to be as paranoid as the birthers to think someone’s parents would put them up to all that. Have a bit more faith in the human race, man!) I was just a 13-year-old kid spitting up the nonsense he’d learned.

<blockquote>“Things like that” are suggestions that his mother put him up to all this, or at least coached him how to milk it for all its worth. She’s a middle school acting teacher, after all, and critics point to a 2010 New York Times profile of him and his family that portrayed her in a slightly meddling light.

“She doesn’t support–,” he cuts himself off. “She’s not a liberal. She’s a conservative. She lost a friend over this!” That friend, he says, texted his mother to say “have a nice life” and that she could no longer be friends because of what Jonathan was doing.

“They are not overjoyed over this,” he says of his parents, “but they’re not angry with me.“ He throws out terms like ”nice“ and ”respectful” to describe their attitude. .

He then goes back to defending his mom.

“Leave her alone! She’s my mom. Moms are not part of this. This is my fight.”

Sorry, but none of that crap you just spewed made any sense. And I know I said I don’t give a …umm, care about the topic of this thread, but I can’t pass up an opportunity to do a little u.e.s. bashing. Just a little…

The obligatory “Jonathan Krohn now more or less a liberal” clip

Once I saw those glasses, I knew. #hipster

OMG a 17 year old rebelled against his parent’s values?..// Why the heck is this new other than for liberal’s ego? Are they touting this of an example of how they have the younger generation? Of course they do, then we all grow up. When that happens we become more conservative.

Took s**t years ago for saying the kid was rehearsed, not principled.

Told you. LOL.

You forgot to add the “LOL” after the “Told you” that would make it clear that you aren’t glowering at the screen in righteous anger.

They have been brainwashed to think if they can just work so hard and be hopeful, they too will become millionaires like their crony bosses.

God help us all.

as opposed to having been brainwashed to think that taking govt benefits at all stages of their life is the path to success, or simply The Path :-)..Is Julia your brain child by any chance? you sound like her creator :-)

Here’s an idea. Stop listening to children as if they have anything to add to the political conversation. They don’t… which is why they can’t vote, drive, or drink. They can’t be trusted to make rational decisions.

Yeah, I agree…I love talking to my kids, listening to their POV about stuff, but it’s not National Audience level conversation! And anytime Rush or Hannity has a kid call in, I immediately tune out…

First it was obama, then Anderson Cooper – can Jonathan Krohn be far behind?

Silly! You aren’t really supposed to read his comments. They’re really more decorative than anything. He’s our token knee-jerk liberal so we try to be tolerant of his illogical ramblings.
