Dumbledore is such an enabler

Harry Potter - spoiled trust-fund patsy. Send the link to every 14 year-old you know - spread the truthiness.
He's a glory hog who unfairly receives credit for the accomplishments of others and who skates through school by taking advantage of his inherited wealth and his establishment connections. Harry Potter is no braver than his best friend, Ron Weasley, just richer and better-connected. Harry's other good friend, Hermione Granger, is smarter and a better student. The one thing Harry excels at is the sport of Quidditch, and his pampered-jock status allows him to slide in his studies, as long as he brings the school glory on the playing field. But as Charles Barkley long ago noted, being a good athlete doesn't make you a role model.

Aw, that article makes me want to defend Harry Potter. I mean, he makes good choices! And he's brave! Give the kid some credit!

Yeah, give the kid some credit. His parents were killed by an uspeakable evil when he was a child, he's been raised by an aunt an uncle who could care less that he exists, and the unspeakable evil will stop at nothing to make sure he dies too. Doesn't sound like a good time to me. Besides, it's not like he gloats or wants the attention. He can't help who he is...
