In the world of leftist-leaning mainstream media and pop culture, it can be hard to find journalists or political commentators that young conservatives can relate to. In that same respect, it can be hard to get past the old, rich, or white guy perception represented by many traditional right-leaning or conservative media organizations. Or is it? For today’s modern young conservative interested in learning more about the American political system, here are six great political commentators to start with:

Mark Levin

If you chose to enter the sphere of talk radio, on weeknights from 6 to 9 p.m., you will find the exceptionally intelligent commentary of top-rated radio personality Mark Levin. The Constitutional lawyer and president of the Landmark Legal Foundation is a best-selling author and a leader of the modern conservative movement. Levin is known for his unique hosting style. This includes loud, passionate outbursts and a commitment to referencing liberal figures and political groups by only to most “Levin-iest” of given nicknames.

Tomi Lahren

If your friends are fellow conservatives, or you have been active on Facebook in the past year, you are probably familiar with Tomi Lahren. Just 23 years old, Lahren’s “Final Thoughts” segments have gained millions of views on Facebook video. She was the target of personal attacks and threats from fans of Beyoncé after Lahren’s SuperBowl halftime commentary went viral. Like many modern conservative figures, Lahren is unapologetic in her commentary. However, what makes her different is her active pursuit to bring opposing viewpoints to her show, weeknights on The Blaze.

Steven Crowder

Originally the youngest contributor to ever earn a contract at Fox News, comedian Steven Crowder represents the modern funny guy in the conservative movement. Crowder’s website and weekly radio show, Lowder with Crowder, covers topics ranging for pop culture, to American politics to world news, in a format and style engaging for the anti-SJW generation. Always open to embracing the “alt-right” community of conservatism, for those looking for a fresh perspective from establish media organizations, Lowder with Crowder is the place to go.

Ben Shapiro

When the late conservative leader Andrew Breitbart includes you in the dedication of his final book, you are handed the utmost respect in the conservative community. Harvard law grad Ben Shapiro is considered one of the premiere young thought leaders on the political right. Supported by his catchphrase, “facts don’t care about your feelings,” there is no controversial topic or mainstream media talking head Shapiro refuses to take on. That includes the company founded by his own mentor, Breitbart.com. Shapiro can be found giving speeches across college campuses and heading up The Daily Wire as editor-in-chief.

Dana Loesch

Host of “Dana” on the Blaze Network, Dana Loesch is a hardcore 2nd amendment advocate and ultra-conservative. Loesch was not always a conservative, but shares her transformation to common sense, constitutional values proudly. She often contributes to stories and analysis on CNN and Fox News and is most well known for her strong-held beliefs and fiery personality. Loesch is the modern conservative’s top momma bear.

Milo Yiannopoulous

Flamboyant and fabulous, Milo Yiannopoulous first gained traction as an outspoken contributor during the GamerGate controversy. Absolutely unapologetic is Milo’s style, so much so that many accuse Twitter of removing his “verified” user badge because of complaints that his tweets were hate speech. Originally from the UK, Yiannopoulous’s commentary on feminism, free speech and other social-libertarian related issues is as enlightening as it is entertaining. Leader of the alt-right movement, you can find him stirring up leftist and social justice warriors on Twitter, or debating your right to free speech on college campuses across the US.

Lord, I'm weary. My energy is sagging, and my motivation is lagging. I am so in need of you. I need your strength and fresh touch to get back on track again. Your word says the joy of the Lord is my strength. I need your joy to replace all the bone-tired parts of my mind, body, and soul. The pressures of life sometimes corner me. Lord help me not to quit and to keep running towards you faithfully. Renew my strength, Lord. Fill me with your power and keep my eyes on you.

-Amen

Marco Rubio, Do Your Fucking Job And Stop Letting Kids Get Slaughtered

Marco Rubio basically got a standing O for showing up to a test he bombed, because that's where America is right now, I guess.

It has been a week and a half since the Parkland Shooting, five months since Las Vegas, a year and a half since Pulse, six years since Sandy Hook and almost nineteen years since Columbine. Yet we are still no closer to effective gun control.

Nineteen-year-olds affiliated with white supremacist groups are still able to buy AR-15s without a single red flag going up. Children are still dying in mass shootings. Politicians are still being bought out by the NRA and refusing to take preventative measures.

Marco Rubio, you have been a representative for Florida since 2000 and have done very little to prevent the Parkland shooting.

In fact, you have a history of trying to loosen gun laws, ultimately. Most notably, you voted against a bill that would prevent people on the terrorist watch list from getting guns less than a month after Pulse. You opted instead for a policy that would require a measly three-day waiting period.

You continually claim stricter gun laws will do nothing to protect us from mass shootings (even though they work in every country that has them), but you've barely even tried (tweets don’t count, just by the way). In fact, you've rejected a number of bills aimed at making it harder for people to get guns used in these mass shootings (usually based on party lines). And your constituency is over it.

You also claim that shootings like Parkland are the cause of mental illness.

However, not only have you done nothing pilot efforts for getting accessible comprehensive mental health care but, according to Orlando Weekly, you also voted AGAINST a bill that would prevent people with mental illnesses from purchasing guns.

I guess this is just what happens when you receive $3.3 million from the NRA, according to the New York Times. Or maybe it's because you're too scared of losing Republican support. It doesn’t matter to me either way; I'm just sick of your shit.

This isn't good enough anymore.

Not for me, not for students in Florida schools, and not for the victims and their families. Your thoughts and prayers are doing jack shit. We want action. We want a policy change. We want you to do your fucking job.

So here is my proposition: if you propose a bill that will actually do something to stop mass shootings, you might just get to keep your job for another six years. And I mean a real policy suggestion. I don’t care if it's imposing age restrictions, ID laws, or even mental health care.

All I'm asking is that you stop with the passive responses to tragedy or dodging criticism with NRA sponsored answers and protect us and our children and our families from totally preventable mass shootings.

All I'm asking is that you do your fucking job.
