If you’re a new listener to The Rick Amato Show, each Monday is our “Top Young Con of the Week” segment. In the segment, a top young conservative or group of young conservatives is spotlighted–whether they are combating leftists on campus and/or on a larger scale. As the producer of the “Top Young Con” segment, I drew the inspiration for Monday’s program from the Young Cons–who also see the need to draw young people to the Conservative Movement.
If you don’t know who the Young Cons are, here’s a little snippet. Remember the ‘Young Con Anthem’ that came out back in May 2009? The one that spread like wildfire on the blogosphere and got picked up by Fox News? How about the two tall basketball players donning suits and their infamous Reagan cutout? How about the guys rapping eloquently about the need for women with intellectual integrity and the need for more capitalists? Josh ‘Stiltz’ Riddle and Dave ‘Serious C’ Rufful are the masterminds behind this effort.
It was a fantastic show. The Young Cons introduced themselves to a greater audience in San Diego, the state of California, and the United States. They discussed their efforts and why they rap conservative viewpoints. Also, both Dave and Josh stressed the importance of a Young Conservative Movement. Both also commented on the AZ tragedy involving Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
In case you crave more Young Cons, you will be able to hear them again in the near future! The podcast will be available for your listening pleasure under the “Podcasts” section on AmatoTalk.com.
