Could one of the Parkland student activists who was sucked into the liberal mantra be growing up? Sounds like Cameron Kasky may be learning. Turns out the young co-founder of March for Our Lives and is now admitting that he made mistakes in the process.
Kasky told Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson and Marie Harf that he left the organization and he regrets mistakes he made.
From Daily Wire:
Kasky told Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson and Marie Harf: “I’m very regretful of a lot of the mistakes that I’ve made along the way.”
“One of the things I never really did was watch myself,” Kasky said. “If I was on a screen I kind of tried to run away from it. I’m not entirely sure why. But, looking back on that it’s like you said, you touched off on this very well in the intro, I’m not going to kick myself for it because I’m 17. Despite the fact that I thought I did at the time, I don’t know everything.”
One of the things he regrets is apparently how he attacked Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during the infamous CNN town hall. He says he did it in order to try to “embarrass Rubio and that was my biggest flaw.”
Now he says that he plans to talk with Rubio next month.
What sparked the change in his thought?
“This summer when March For Our Lives went on the summer tour that we embarked on, I met that person in Texas who’s got that semi-automatic weapon because that’s how they like to protect their family,” Kasky continued. “I met the 50-some-odd-percent of woman who are pro-life, even though I thought it was preposterous that a woman could be pro-life and not pro-choice at the time. I learned that a lot of our issues politically come from a lack of understanding of other perspectives and also the fact that so often young conservatives and young liberals will go into debate, like I said earlier, trying to beat the other one as opposed to come to an agreement.”
He said that the group that he helped to found no longer needs his involvement, that his help “wasn’t crucial.”
What does he intend to do in the future?
He is planning on a new podcast called “Cameron Knows Nothing,” on which he will talk with people on both sides of the aisle about political issues.
And it happened because he met people on the right who turned out not to be the demons folks on the left paint them to be. That they actually had good reasons for their beliefs and that maybe some folks on the left should start listening to what they have to say to come to a resolution on critical issues.
It’s a start.
