    14-year old gay teen is confused and ignorant. I have never heard Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck go on a hateful rant about gay people.

    Elton John performed at Rush Limbaugh’s last wedding and the both of them are friends.

    I’ve had sex with Glenn Beck, so I know he doesn’t hate gay people.

    If this kid wants to compare himself to a hateful adult, he should compare himself to Democrat Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church.

    Limbaugh and Beck have gone on many a rant about gay people.

    If you’ve never heard it, Alan, it’s likely because your parents were beating you at the time and you couldn’t hear the radio-bigotry through the ringing in your ears 😀

    And calling Phelps a Democrat, despite the fact that he’s gone on record with calling President Obama “the AntiChrist” doesn’t change the fact that nobody in your family supports you as a gay man.

    And I do hope that this kid follows in Beck and Limbaughs footsteps. And by footsteps i mean eating habits 😀

    “I knew these teenagers when they were in elementary school…they were not homosexuals. They just decided all of a sudden”

    It’s called puberty, dumb ass.

    Gotta agree with Diatribes. Young Mr. Dead-Eyed-at-Fourteen will, we can hope, be deeply embarrassed by all this someday, and maybe regain whatever light a kid that age is supposed to have inside, but why is he being showcased? This is a fantastic blog that makes a lot of correct judgment calls, but we have to remember that the internet gives pretty much everyone the ability to reach pretty much everyone; so just because he has or has had an audience doesn’t mean he should be highlighted further.

    Yes, Caiden, you are entitled to your right to free speech, but remember one thing: Nothing in this world is truly “free”.

    There are responsibilities that come with free speech, and when you spout off hateful diatribes that aren’t based in some level of rational fact, then we, the people, have the right to have your show removed. This is what many would consider to be “cause and effect”.

    Perhaps when you’re a bit older, this might make a bit more sense. Oh, and comparing yourself to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck is not exactly a cause celeb worthing mentioning.

  6. Demian says

    You know, he sounds a lot like Zinnia Jones. He’s got that same little growl at the end of a phrase. But his voice is still changing, maybe that too will change.

    He could use some of Zinnia’s intelligence, however.

    Well, as G.W. Bush once said: “Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?”

    Based on this illiterate, obviously inbred dimwit’s rhetorical capabilities, I’d say they isn’t learning.

  8. Jack M says

    Despite what the First Amendment says, the right of free speech has historically been curtailed by the courts many times.

    Oh, and little Mr. Big Shot needs to read up on Marxism before he starts to use that term.

  9. Mary says

    “Well, as G.W. Bush once said: “Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?”

    Did he really say that Jamal49? That’s funny. But he did always have a problem with language. He very often spoke as if standard comprehensible English was a medium capable of causing bodily harm. He once accused someone of “misunderestimating” him. Even his supporters (and I was one at the time) were thinking “WTF?”

    But the comment you quoted was a doozy. I mean by the time you’ve graduated from both Yale AND Harvard should you still be having a problem with subject-verb agreement? Something tells me if we asked him what a “dangling participle” is he might answer that it’s a weapon of mass destruction.

  10. Eddie says

    I have to agree with DiatribesAndOvations. There is no reason to give this little nobody any attention. Why give this ignorant dork any free publicity?

  11. Greggie says

    I suppose I need to fully read the post or watch the videos before being entitled to comment like this, but I’m sure this kid has LOTS of [imaginary] friends.

  12. Caliban says

    I agree it’s a mistake to give this little POS attention. I could have gone the rest of my life blissfully unaware of the existence of this kid and his 2-bit “radio show.” But now, thanks to this “controversy,” he has probably gained listeners and has become a martyr to their cause.

    He really does need to update his look though. I suggest a plastic bag over his head and rubber band around his neck to bring out the blue in his face.

  13. MKisNE says

    I wonder if Aeropostale wants him wearing their clothes? Hate speech 101, don’t bring companies into it. Guess they don’t teach that in freshman polysci?

  14. Diogenes says

    He is doing a pretty spot on Limbaugh impersonation but lacks the original’s command of language.

    @MKISNE – Odds are that he is homeschooled so none of that evil marxist polysci in his “education”.

  15. Dave says

    This young boy is part of the psychological warfare being used by the anti-gay Christians to fight the “gay agenda”. How could he be on the air without the help of older people with money? It is the anti-gay Christians who are using this boy who looks like he has a mentally problem and who they have trained to be anti-gay. The anti-gay Christians think by using children they can get away with using them to spew their anti-gay propaganda and get away with it. Sort of like the mentality of putting a bomb on a Muslim child like they do in terrorist countries so it will explode when around Americans. In this case the anti-gay Christians use black propaganda to destroy gays in America.

  16. Brenden says

    I listened to one of his shows, and I must say.. I have to stick up for him. He’s being non-violent, he’s admitted gay people have the right to be gay, and exist in this country, he never once advocated for violence.. all he did was express his opinions, which he has the right to. Yes, I believe his opinions are sick, but he has the right to have them, and to express them. Liberals are harassing him when they shouldn’t be. They should make counter-videos challenging his views, but not being mean to him.

  17. FunMe says

    He can continue to say what he wants, and we can continue to respond to his HATE day in and day out. Thank goodness the majority of people are against what he has to say. Check out his Facebook posts and you’ll see his “fans” are less than 1%. LOL

    e comes from the PENTECOSTAL church which is as HATE mongering like the BAPTIST church. Those fanatics needs to get a life!

  18. says

    “Seriously, does the kid only own one shirt? He has worn that one in most of the photos on his website and his videos.”
    He’s trying to look more straight macho with the ATHLETIC logo.

  19. anon says

    He’s more like the guys from AFA than Beck and Limbaugh. First of all, Beck and Limbaugh are not similar in style or content. Beck’s a fear mongering conspiracy nut. Limbaugh’s an establishment Republican pretending to be a populist with a plutacratic agenda. Apparently, this fan of theirs is not aware of this. If he thinks that “getting his message out” makes him similar to the other two, he’d need to get in line with the hundred other conservative broadcasters on the radio, and the thousands of bloggers, youtubers and other Internet hopefuls. Whatever this kid has to say has been said already hundreds of times and much better by someone else. We’ve heard it all before.

  20. Tonic says

    No thanks, I already saw what this kid is about and I’m not going to waste any more of my attention.

    I don’t watch/listen to Limbaugh, Coulter or any other utterly inane haters. At this point, I think we need to ignore instead of watching more of his clips.

  21. AJ says

    He does realize that his freedom of speech is only in concern of the government. Youtube is a private company and can shut him down whenever and for whatever reason they want. Idiot.

  22. Bosie says

    It seems Towleroad is makign him even more famous thanks to the posts…>WHAT A 14yo HAS TO SAY = NOT IMPORTANT…STOP APUTTING THE SPOTLIGHT ON HIM…AND HE’LL GO AWAY. the kid is obviously a brainwashed oser.

  23. Shelly says

    I agree with Brenden especially with regards to children, but in general as well. Returning ignorance with hate is counter-productive at best. We would get further taking the high-road, especially against those who presenting their case civilly.

  24. vanndean says

    One of the things this child needs, among many others, is some study on the application of the “free speech” principle. His spouting off about his “free speech” has nothing to do with the first amendment. He really needs to get a clue as to how “free speech” and the Constitution are related and how the principle functions in a constitutional republic prior to spouting off about someone trying to violate his “free speech” rights.

  25. JJ says

    @Brenden, freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism, and protecting everyone’s right to express his opinion is not to say that all opinions are equally valid. Opinions that survive the test of criticism are more valid than those that don’t. Those who think we should withhold criticism until someone crosses a line into violence or ad hominem or Hitler comparisons miss the whole point of free speech: to put every idea on trial for its life, leaving the best ideas to survive for everone’s enlightenment. As soon as the words cross your lips they’ve crossed the line beyond which they can be fairly criticized.

  26. Barca says

    @Littlekiwi – so the best thing you can muster is accuse someone of having parental issues? Grow up. So many on here are quick to throw that out.

    Phelps may not be a modern day Dem but he sure fought the legal fight with Dems during the civil rights fight.

  27. Bernie says

    So,if I am gay and I am gay…..How did I “become” gay if President Omaba was not in office when I “decided” to become gay? If this sounds ridiculous and silly, it was meant to be. There is absolutely no sense, logic or rationale to what this pitiful kid is spewiing. The really sad part is he is so young to be so misinformed and having a public platform to spread these inane statements. And this is our future??!??!

  30. Shelly says

    @JJ — There is a difference between “not attacking” and “not responding.” I believe we should publicly and strongly disagree with our opponents. However, juvenile attacks/name-calling/demonization/misrepresentation of our opponents views/motives is absolutely counter-productive and plays right into our opponents’ “we’re the real victims here” narrative. If we act like mature, reasonable people and stick to countering our opponents’ points rather than attacking them as people we’d get a lot further without ceding them any ammunition to use against us.

  31. David says

    This hateful little home-schooled bedwetter will someday learn that he does not in fact know everything. In the meantime, I suggest we ignore him.

  32. Acronym Jim says

    Out of the mouths of babes…

    Sometimes comes an articulate, unadorned and clear expression of everything that child has been taught…and everything from which that child has been shielded.

    For being 14 and interested in pursuing a career as a public commentator, I think the boy has talent and chutzpah. Let’s hope he eventually learns critical thinking. Learning to critique parental, authority figure and personal conclusions based on evidence rather than rote.

    It’s clear he can recite talking points, but can he learn to actually learn and draw his own conclusions?

    I hope he has the ability and is able to turn from the appeal of the false martyrdom of notoriety and listen to his better nature and sense of empathy.

  33. da7202 says

    This kid really needs to know about “puberty”.
    Of course, this is not taught…you just get thru it, but he should google puberty anyway.
