Remember Jonathan Krohn? The former conservative wunderkind was one of the bigger hits at the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference, releasing a book about his conservative philosophies and aspiring to go to Princeton. Politico caught up with him this week, now 17, and found that, like many young people, his political views have changed, drastically, and he has no interest in ever writing a political book again.
Asked about his past as a conservative stalwart, Politico describes Krohn as “cringing,” explaining that he thought of himself as “naive” and was “inundated with conservative talk” as a child. “You’re really defeating yourself if you think you have all of your ideas in your head when you were 12 or 13. It’s impossible,” he explains. He adds that he is neither liberal nor conservative because “I’m tired of being an ideology,” so instead Politico does an issue rundown:
I guess someone had sex with him or something.
“And, perhaps telling of all, Krohn is enrolling this fall at a college not exactly known for its conservatism: New York University.”
Yeeeeessssss welcome to the dark side
