BIO

Caleb Bonham decided to pursue a career in media and politics after being inspired by listening to the Rush Limbaugh radio show. His first big hit came while pursuing a career as a lobbyist, after a video he made mocking Sandra Fluke supporters at an Obama rally went viral online. Bonham went on to host the YouTube series “The Caleb Bonham Show” and recently moved to the Washington, D.C., area to take the position of editor-in-chief of Campus Reform. He is a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel and still hosts his award-nominated YouTube series.

 

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or another capacity?

It’s important because we need leaders — young conservatives with hearts to serve and the courage to stand against progressive and liberal bullies. Right now, diversity of thought is crumbling in the classroom, individual responsibility is mocked on social media, and materialism is glorified in entertainment despite indisputable hypocrisy among the media elites. With all the technology at our fingertips, the opportunity for young conservatives to make a difference and bring accountability and change has never been greater. All it takes is a young leader with the strength of their convictions.

 

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

Be honest and open with the issues and actually answer the questions asked. Elected officials and others in positions of leadership need to abandon the talking points, speak from the heart, and stop being afraid of offending some people. If you are honest, hopeful, and reasoned with your message, it will resonate. The people you offend in the process were probably going to attack you anyway.

 

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

I want to see the conservative movement less involved in politics and more involved in culture. The politics of power will always be corrupt. Conservatives need to connect with people in ways that are not overtly political, be it through movies, television, or music. Our content must be entertaining first and enlightening second.
