John David Rice-Cameron, son of Obama Administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice, says listening to The Mark Levin show shaped his conservative political views.

Rice-Cameron, a Stanford student serving as activism director for California College Republicans, explains Levin’s early influences on him in a “College Fix” article:

Rice-Cameron started listening to talk radio on his own. That’s when he discovered Mark Levin, saying the firebrand pundit became his “ultimate political hero.”

“He’d talk about John Locke, and so I’d go and read some John Locke. He’d talk about John Smith, so I’d go and read John Smith. He’d talk about the Federalist Papers, and so I read those,” Rice-Cameron said. “I discovered the intellectual roots of liberty.”

Rice-Cameron has had the privilege of speaking with Levin three times, twice when he called in to Levin’s radio show.

The third time, Rice-Cameron discussed his piece in The Stanford Review, "Students for Justice in Palestine Linked to Terrorist Affiliate" with Levin, who thought so highly of it that he shared it on social media.

Rice-Cameron did not let on that he was Susan Rice’s son, at the time.
