13 Year Olds Are Idiots: Why You Should Ignore CJ Pearson

If you are 13, you are an idiot. I don’t care if you have an eidetic memory, an IQ of 210, and you’ve solved P versus NP.

You are an idiot.

All 13 year olds should be wearing one of these.

All 13 year olds should be wearing one of these.

This isn’t personal, just the truth.

You are 13, you don’t know shit about the world around you and that isn’t going to change much for the next several years.

That’s actually a good thing. Enjoy it while it lasts kid, because one day you’ll wake up and discover the real world and it kinda actually sucks.

But no, really, it's like that. Stay young while you can children.

But no, really, it’s like that. Stay young while you can children.

I was also an idiot at 13. I was a know it all punk who would have put Hermione Granger to shame. Any time a memory from the age of 13 (up until 17 really) pops up in my mind I cringe and think “Why didn’t someone slap me? Better yet, can I travel back in time and slap myself?”

My one saving grace is that no one listened to me, published my inane ramblings, and there was very little social media to document my awful ignorant self for future reference (the few forms of social media I had at that age have been meticulous scrubbed from existence, don’t bother looking). Which means, of course, that the only people who know the true depth of the horror that was 13 year old Meredith, are myself, my family, and a few select friends. Anyone else has likely forgotten and my youthful stupidity won’t effect my life overly much in the future.

I bring this all up for a reason.

CJ Pearson is an obnoxious little 13 year old shit and, while conservative media is partially at fault for creating that obnoxious little shit, it’s too be expected.

He’s exactly what 13 year old know it all twerps are supposed to be, just on a far grander scale because conservatives can be complete dunderheads when it comes to choosing spokespeople for our party.

It really really was not.

It really really was not.

We gave this little shit a pulpit and then when voice dropped he betrayed us, as teenagers do, by completely changing his personality and making poor decisions.

Unlike most 13 year olds, his bad decisions are supporting a socialist rather than just staying out past curfew or skipping class, but still…typical ignorant behavior.

Luckily enough I don’t find myself in the uncomfortable position of having supported him at one point in the past. I always knew he was a ignorant little shit, even when he was pushing ideas that fell on our side of the aisle.

I didn’t know who he was until my mother sent me a link to some video he made, probably 6 months ago. I was waist deep in research and interviews for my book on minority conservatives and my mom thought I should try to interview him. 

“Mom, he’s 13.” 

“But you’re interviewing young conservatives.”

“Yeah, like 18 to 26 year olds, old enough to actually know what the hell they are talking about.”

“Well he seems to know what he’s talking about.”

“He hasn’t even hit puberty yet, he obviously doesn’t know what he’s talking about. I’m not interviewing him and putting him in my book only to have to print an embarrassing retraction later when he changes his mind as soon as his voice drops.”

Puberty is where everything goes wrong quite frankly.

Puberty is where everything goes wrong quite frankly.

I’m clearly prophetic, but that’s not important.

I’m only writing this because of the exchange that S.E. Cupp has had with him on Twitter recently, otherwise I’d be ignoring him the way I ignore all 13 year olds on social media. Now I love S.E. Cupp (In fact I may have a bit of a girl crush on her. Sorry S.E., I know you are happily married and have a child, but I can’t hide my feelings.) but she seriously needs to just disengage and ignore the twerp, the same way she (and every other conservative) should have when he was posting conservative commentary.

You are arguing with a 13 year old. I don’t think the logic centers of his brain have even finished developing yet. He definitely doesn’t have the real world experience to know why he’s an idiot. Let the little shit figure it out for himself, the way the rest of us former 13 year olds had too, time and experience. 

Just own up to the fact that conservatives made a giant ridiculous mistake in putting him on a pedestal in the first place and move on.

He’ll grow up eventually, but for the next 5 years or so…block him and treat his posts and tweets with the derision and dismissal you would any other social media post by a 13 year old.

When he’s 25 I hope he’s able to look back at his well documented history of being an obnoxious little shit and think, “Why didn’t someone slap me? Better yet, can I travel back in time and slap myself?” It will be even worse for him, because his every stupid thought will be there, glaring at him from his Internet history, rather than just vague embarrassing memories that he recalls at 2am and obsesses about for the rest of the night. 

Pearson in 5 to 10 years.

Pearson in 5 to 10 years.

He doesn’t have anything worth listening too and he definitely isn’t worth the time you’ll spend arguing with him.

And finally, if you find yourself siding with a 13 year old on political issues, over actual intelligent men and women who actually know what they are talking about…you need help.

Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Values Voter Summit

Few things on the “conservative” side of politics annoy me more than the Values Voter Summit. I can’t think of a time where they have added something truly conservative (or useful) to the political climate of the country.

However, a couple of things worth noting happened at the summit this year and they are things that pretty much sum up what I dislike about the demographic that the this group appeals to. The Values Voter summit is built by, and for, a demographic I like to refer to as “Progressive for Jesus” (if you’ve read this blog much you’ve seen me use this before, if you are new then this refers to a subset of “social conservatives” that feel that their religion and morals should be forced onto the rest of the country via big government style legislation…they share a lot more in common with progressive ideology than conservative). This is the demographic you are likely to hear making claims like “This is a Christian nation”, because they think their religion somehow gets special privilege to control the nation due to the incorrect belief that some of the founding fathers believed in their version of God and/or went to a church similar to their own.

If you can’t tell, I don’t care for this type of person much.

“The Big Book of Minority Conservatives”

That’s a working title and will not, let me repeat, will not be what the published book will be called. Absolutely not.

Have you ever been told that you are a “self-hating [blank]” by a liberal? Ever been told you “can’t” be a conservative/Republican because you are a member of a minority? Do you make liberals uncomfortable because you don’t fit the stereotypical old white straight christian male box they created to shove all conservatives in?

I know a lot of you have, because I’ve seen it happen on tumblr, twitter, facebook, and in the media. It’s happened to me too, almost daily, since I “came out” as a gay conservative.

Liberals like to pretend we don’t exist and some conservatives may not even be aware that we are in their midst, leaving them not knowing about a serious resource they could use to do voter outreach or learn how to better express conservative views to minority communities.

I want to change that with a book that will tell the stories and ideas of minority conservatives to the rest of the country.

Please contact me at MeredithAncret@gmail.com with the heading “Conservative Minority” if you would like to be part of the book. I will be conducting interviews which will be a part of the book, which I hope to have completed and on it’s way to being published (whether through a publishing company or self published) by January of 2016.

This is open to all minority conservatives. Meaning if you don’t fit the “old, white, straight, christian, male” demographic please contact me.

Examples:

young conservatives

black conservatives

gay and bisexual conservatives

pagan conservatives

native american conservatives

female conservatives

etc.

____

If your interview is chosen for the book you will be asked to approve your interview for publication. Not all interviews will be used, but I have plans for an interactive website in the future where your interviews, blogs, and even videos about being a minority conservative can be posted.

An Open Letter: Ronald Reagan, The Big Tent, and Why the Gender I Sleep With Shouldn’t Determine My Suitability As a Republican Leader

A Message To The Republicans Who Care More About Someone’s Sexual Preference Than They Do Their Political Beliefs

The short version of this message is: were you born that stupid or did you just get hit on the head repeatedly as a child?

I don’t usually have a problem with these types, generally they come out in the comments sections of articles and have slightly better grammar (but comparable intelligence levels…okay, maybe that’s not fair) to the youtuber commentators who shout FAG!!!!111!1! at videos they don’t like.  Sometimes there’s the occasional  “conservative” blogger, talking head, or candidate, but they tend to get smacked down pretty quickly.

Other times, however, their stupid ideas need to be discussed out in the open. I’m talking about people who say things like:

It’s Always Okay For Someone to Not Like You – A Rant

I find myself at odds, once again, with another gay Republican. I wrote an article a few months ago on why I don’t make politics personal and what triggered it was an article written by Jimmy LaSalvia, recently of GOProud.

Now I find myself writing a response to something he’s said once again…and steadily getting annoyed at myself that I feel the need to continue doing so.

Conservatives Are Getting Addicted to Being Offended

When I was reading Greg Gutfeld’s book, The Joy of Hate, this year I thought he was being a little melodramatic when he complained that Republicans/Conservatives were starting to get offended as easily as liberals. (I can’t remember where he said that and I’m sure it’s not an exact quote…my copy of the book is at home and I’m not.)

But unfortunately I’m beginning to see his point.

We spend an inordinate amount of time on petty issues when it comes to our news cycle.

An Open Letter to John McCain: Oh My God, Get Out of My State!

Dear McCain,

A little bird told me that you might not be backing down from running for your Senate seat in 2016. I’m here to ask you to please excuse yourself from the political conversation in our state.

No one likes you.

You are old, you are senile, and you sell out conservatism every chance you get.

Come out of the closet already and admit you are a Democrat, you’ll feel much better, I swear.

Or don’t, I don’t really care what you do, as long as you stop trying to pretend you represent conservative ideals.

I personally don’t think anyone could have beat Obama in 2008, but it must have been some collective delusion or some extreme blonde moment that led Republicans to choosing you as the candidate.

I hate to tell you this, but you’ve been “one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off” for a goddamn long time.

In April of this year your approval ratings in the great state of Arizona were abysmal. 67% of those polled we need someone new in office.  Only 21% thought you deserved another term and your job approval rating was at the lowest it’s been in 21 years. 

Stick a fork in yourself, because you are done.

Liberals are the ones defending you now and you’d rather concentrate on your poker app than on important issues of foreign policy. We didn’t send you to Washington to play games and crack jokes about after you get caught. This isn’t just your job, it’s the future of the United States. It’s shameful that you would be so irresponsible.

You think that supporting the constitution passionately makes someone a “whacko bird” and you’d rather be at dinner with Obama than representing the interests of your constituents. You’re from Arizona, a red state populated by people that don’t appreciate your attempts to sell freedom down the river in order to win brownie points with the administration.

Oh and your daughter isn’t doing your reputation any favors.

In short, please “shove off”, because I promise that I and many other fellow Arizonans will make your next campaign a huge embarrassment for you. We don’t need or want a power hungry, opportunistic, fake Republican representing our state.

Sincerely NOT yours,

Most of the State of Arizona
