CPAC's golden child spurns past lifestyle choices

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2012-07-02 At 1.25.07 Pm Remember that thirteen year-old kid who was all over the political blogosphere back around 2009 because of his youthful embrace of conservative ideology? Yeah, well now that kind, Jonathan Krohn, is a seventeen year old with very different ideas:

Krohn won’t go so far as to say he’s liberal, in part because his move away from conservatism was a move away from ideological boxes in general.

“I want to be Jonathan Krohn,” he said, “and I’m tired of being an ideology, and it’s not fun and it gets boring and it’s not who we are as individuals.”

But a quick rundown of his current political stances suggests a serious pendulum swing away from the right.

Gay marriage? In favor. Obamacare? “It’s a good idea.” Who would he vote for (if he could) in November? “Probably Barack Obama.” His favorite TV shows? “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.” His favorite magazine? The New Yorker. And, perhaps telling of all, Krohn is enrolling this fall at a college not exactly known for its conservatism: New York University.
