Mitchell, who was the youngest person to be elected to the Iowa House at 21, admitted that many of the people he attended college with considered themselves to be radically progressive socialists. He added that for many of those students the radicalization didn’t occur at home but on campus. If parents aren’t teaching their children, most of that conversion for the Gen Z generation (known as Zoomers) will then take place on college campuses, and in many cases as far back as elementary school.
“I believe that has happened within our school systems and universities, we’ve seen this progression toward Marxism,” Carter agreed, but noted that like Mitchell, there is a growing movement of young conservative activists as well.
However, it won’t be easy. A recent Morning Consult poll found that only 16% of Gen Z were proud to live in America. It’s an abysmal number, said Mitchell.
Mitchell found that post-college he was able to connect with many young professionals who are a part of a small but growing Gen Z generation. Moreover, he said groups such as Turning Point USA and CPAC, allow younger conservative adults the ability to make connections and network with similar people. It was part of the reason why he founded Run Gen Z, which is an organization that “empowers and mentors young conservatives to run for office.
In fact, Mitchell , was elected at the age of 21, when he first Iowa’s 84th House
District which is located in the southeast region of the state.
The biggest battle for Mitchell is how radicalization of the youth and young adults, he said.
“Even just trying to get them to the middle of the aisle” is difficult, he told Carter.
The issues confronted by the youth in current American culture is that they have -for the most part – been radicalized by the left, he said. There are exceptions to this but it’s a rarity, Mitchell said. He described of his good friends is a leftist and easy to have discussions with.
Mitchell was asked by his friend about the bans on CRT and LGBTQ+ in the school systems and said, “Don’t you think its crazy that you guys voted for that?”
Mitchell responded with, “Think about when you were in elementary, when you were in middle and high school. I went to school in a small town with maybe two people of color in a small class of 30.” Mitchell continued to say, “We learned about the terrible things of what we did to folks that were in slavery, the reconstruction era and the Jim Crow era.”
Mitchell goes on to tell his friend that that wasn’t what they were banning in Iowa in regards to CRT they are banning the “radicalized agenda” that CRT has. Mitchell stated that the curriculum in the USA is “written by people who hate America.”
Sara responded with, “It’s normalizing systemic racism… It driving a wedge between our children, between our family. Its almost as if there is an effort to break down our culture, our nation and our principles.”

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
