Henry Rollins to GOP: All Those 16 Year Olds Will Be Able to Vote in 2016

Written by scott on July 6th, 2013

Henry RollinsQueerty reports on punk rocker Henry Rollins, who has a warning for the GOP:

“Bad News for the Haters Dept.: You realize that all those obnoxious 16-year-olds you see everywhere, texting their friends who are standing next to them, will be able to vote in the 2016 elections. Do you think you will be able to sell them on your anti-gay/anti-woman/anti-brown/black platform? Do you think they want to end up like you? I bet they don’t. Gov. Bobby Jindal said that you all have to stop being the stupid party. I don’t think you can do it. How did equality become political? Because you can’t handle science, change or the truth. America is on the move, you are not.”

And they’re for marriage equality – youth support for marriage equality was at an astonishing 70% in March.

    Thank you Henry for telling it like it REALLY IS! Work with & have 3 16 yr. old grand kids & they will NEVER vote for any Republican or Conservative person. They do not comprehend any of their ideologies nor do they understand the HATE that they spread nor the reason for such hate. They liked Chris Christie until he came out against Equality and now he will NEVER regain their trust or vote. They have zero tolerance for any negativity about Equality. Their friends are the same way and this group is the majority. Thank you Henry!

    IMO, while these kids are more socially active, they are less ‘informed intelligent’ as their elders. And for this I blame an educational system that has been manipulated by Republicans and conservatives, through politics, to keep them ‘blissfully ignorant’, and dependent on the government to do for them.
