A Very Political 14 Year Old

Sat Jun 09, 2012 1:12 am

So I saw this on the Tubes the other day and wondered what you guys would make of it, this is Caiden Cowger who loves to voice his very conservative views which is ok? Right? But this is what he has to say about homosexuality -

Official Obama is Making Kids Gay!

Certainly very controversial but what do you guys think?

Like so many things, it comes down to religion. More specifically, people who follow a religion but don't have the decency to allow others to have views different to their own.

I'm not even going to give the guy the satisfaction of having any more views. I honestly fail to see how Obama is making kids gay - it's completely illogical!

You can be a hateful bigot at any age.

This is why you must support this topic. :)

As scary as it is that video actually doesn't suprise me. Homophobia and racism seems to be so much more of a problem in the US. His whole argument makes absolutely no sense either.

Religious indoctrination + US education system = this prized bellend.

Flagged the video. Whether these are genuine views or simply attention seeking, this really shouldn't be allowed on sites such as YouTube (even if they're a sad reality), inspired by religious beliefs or not.

I certainly hope YouTube don't remove the video. To deploy a famous quote:

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"

If YouTube remove it then people can't see what a moron he is.

There's actually been a discussion about this on an American friend of mine's wall today, and he makes some really interesting points:

Essentially, I think I agree with him (Scott, that is, not the kid this thread centres around!!). This guy's a complete 'douche' (useful word...), and deserves an awful lot of flack to go his way, but does he deserve this life-long stigma that he will now have, thanks to the viral nature of the internet?

It's much like what's happening with Chessington right now. Chances are they are 100% to blame for what happened to that girl, but as of yet we don't know, yet still a lynch-mob attacks with pitchforks raised, instead of calm discussion.

This is the curse of social media - it takes nothing for things to flare up and go very big, very quickly. This guy, right now, at 14, is a complete douche, but is it fair that at, say, 22, when his views may have changed, when he may have radically matured, that a quick Google will reveal that at 14 he was a douche? Weren't we all, even if to much lesser degrees?

He needs to be severely dealt with locally, not internationally, IMO.

^ I agree, and that's a large part of why I believe the video should be removed. Everybody wins the long run, that way.
