[February 4, 2021] U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said that “Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.” This quote says a lot about Steven Crowder, a staunch political conservative, commentator, Christian, and comedian. Steven Crowder does not stand in the middle of the road.
I began my political leadership series six years ago when I wrote about Dinesh D’Sousa, a relatively unknown conservative who started making waves in political circles. Since that time, I have reported on more well-known political conservatives such as Thomas Sowell, Charles Krauthammer, Victor Davis Hanson, and Sebastian Gorka.1 At 33 years of age, Crowder is more astute than most senior leaders twice his age.
“The message bombarding young adults from the leftist cultural elite is clear; you should think for yourself … by adopting my beliefs as your own.” – Steven Crowder
Like so many of my highlights of political conservatives, Steven Crowder is controversial. I first saw him in action at one of his “Change My Mind” events. I saw the first one from late 2017 where he had a huge sign that read, “There Are Only 2 Genders, Change My Mind.” This is where he takes to the streets to have conversations with real people on hot-button issues. This YouTube video (50:19 minutes) had over 39 million views and 315k comments.2
Raised as a child in Canada, he now resides in the U.S. and is an unabashed American Patriot. He stands for classic conservatism, such as limited government, the first and second Amendments, traditional families, and success through hard work and staying out of trouble with the law. He is opposed to freeloaders and believes that those who rely upon the government dole are harming themselves and their community.
Steven Crowder generates controversy by not shying away from hot topics. For example, in April of 2020, he suggested that COVID-19 virus death tolls were inflated, accusing leftists at hospitals of labeling unrelated deaths as caused by the virus.3 Controversy is his stock and trade, using it to get out his message about the failure of Progressive ideology.
A few days ago, he restarted his radio show, Louder with Crowder, where he hosts a hard-hitting, roll-on-the-floor funny hour about political leftism. Crowder is willing to go toe to toe with anyone on any subject. That attitude is one thing I like about him; all guts, no cowards in his closet.
