Hard-left squad member, Minnesota Rep. Ilham Omar, isn’t exactly known for her pro-American, pro-capitalist views and it would appear the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
Omar’s daughter, climate activist, and online influencer Isra Hirsi seems to have felt that adding a communist hammer and sickle to her Twitter profile was necessary.
As pointed out by Andy Ngo on Twitter, Hirsi, 18, has a history of involving herself in extremist causes. During the BLM riots, Hirsi began collecting donations for rioters and declared it was time for a communist revolution.
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter added a communist symbol to her bio. Isra Hirsi has talked before about how she writes some of her mother’s tweets. During the BLM race riots in her city, Isra put out a call for donations for rioters. She has also called for a communist insurrection. pic.twitter.com/gAViZZctPp

Hirsi is already considered one of the who’s who by leftist news outlets and has been invited to speak Universities according to Fox News:
The congresswoman’s daughter has amassed a massive following on Twitter and Instagram through her work with the U.S. Youth Climate Strike. She has also spoken at prestigious venues, including giving her own TED talk at Wake Forest University in North Carolina titled “An Angry Black Girl.”
Hirsi was also named to Forbes’ “40 Under 40 Government and Politics” list in 2020, has been featured in New York Magazine, and has been described as “saving the planet” by Vice News for her climate change work.
Hirsi is reportedly known for writing some of her mother’s tweets as well, further putting some of the comments that come out of the congresswoman’s Twitter in perspective.
If that is true, then we can safely assume that Omar is, herself, a communist but isn’t as open about it, choosing to make vague complaints about destroying the current system instead. She never mentions the system we should replace it with, but it’s not hard to figure out.
“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” she said during an outdoor press conference. “So we cannot stop at [the] criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
If her daughter is openly a communist, and Omar wants to bring down the current American system, there’s a strong possibility that the daughter is taking after the mother.
