RE: Mini Rush Limbaugh?
Don't let him upset you guys so easily he's just a little kid. He has no idea what he's saying.

RE: Mini Rush Limbaugh?
Does the kid bother me? No. The fact that adults are taking him seriously does. The fact that adults say the same thing does. The fact that anyone would support or endorse this in our country does. The fact that his parents have either no control or support him does. He may only be one kid, but the things being spewed forth from his mouth are spewed from other mouths and have been ingrained into him over the course of his life. My wife often says that kids take the things that their parents do and perfect it. This kid has taken the things he has heard and is restating them. Thereby displaying his own ignorance but also the ignorance, bigotry, lies, hate, and filth of the adults around him.

The adults supporting him are desperate to get younger people into following their ideology because most people that take them seriously are older. I think they're hesitant to critique him because of this.

RE: Mini Rush Limbaugh?
Unfortunately a lot of young people do follow this BS. I come from a small conservative town in Middle Tennessee and I see plenty of people I graduated with hold similar ideas. Maybe not all of the crazy ideas, but some of them. Anti-gay and anti-atheist abound in my hometown among all generations. Albeit less and less each generation but I would still venture the guess of >50%.

I love how his website claims he is the number one rated radio show host for the ages between 10-17, but then you look at his average Youtube video. Does not reflect that, does it?

My native town is Lawrenceburg. About an hour and a half south of Franklin.

It's a clear cut case of someone who is easily influenced (especially being only 14) and basically just parroting things he's
heard from other people, which in this case is blatantly ripping off Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. It's very hard to
take a 14 year old seriously talking about politics or social issues when they have such minimal life experience.
For those who missed it or don't have HBO, here you go.

The best line of all:

"New Rule: If a 14 year old can deliver your message, it's not because he's gifted. It's because, intellectually, you're a child."


Part 1





Part 2


Bill Maher knows what the fuck he is talking about.
