It turns out that Rep. Ilhan Omar isn’t the only far-left activist in her family. Nor is she the only one in the family who seems to loathe President Donald Trump.
“President Trump, your actions are actually harming people,” her daughter, Isra Hirsi, said during an appearance Friday on the far-left program “Democracy Now!”
“Millions of people across this country are being impacted by [your inaction]. Us young people are not going to stand down and allow this inaction to continue. We will continue to be on the streets until we see some change from your office. We are going to be voting you out because we need a leader that is actually going to take action on this incredible crisis.”

What exactly was her beef with him? The fact that Trump’s unwilling to kowtow to the left’s increasingly radical “climate change” demands.
Besides being the daughter of one of the most controversial, radical congresswomen in America, Hirsi is also the executive director and co-founder of the U.S. Youth Climate Strike.
“My name is Isra Hirsi, I am a 16-year-old sophomore from Minneapolis, Minnesota. And I am one of the three Co-Founders and Co-Directors for the US Youth Climate Strike,” an autobiography of her on the far-left group’s website reads.
“Growing up in MN with the intense climate and in diverse communities, I have developed a very well-rounded knowledge of climate change. Seeing pipelines being built in my state, extreme snow conditions, and hearing about Flint MI, I really wanted to do something about it.”
It’s unclear what she defines as “well-rounded knowledge,” given as she currently lacks a high school degree, a college diploma, and any science accreditations.
What’s known is that the Climate Strike is supported by a slew of radicals, including those at the embattled Women’s March, which has been mired in controversy for its history of repeatedly hiring Sharia law advocates and anti-Semites.
This is how we raise voices. Youth on climate – thank you for your awesome &important work.

“I joined my school’s green team a year ago and got connected with iMatter Minneapolis. Currently, I am apart of MN Can’t Wait, a youth coalition of organizations ranging from Sunrise MN to MN 350,” Hirsi’s autobiography continues. “As a black Muslim woman, it is important to me to have intersectionality be brought into this fight!”
Note the disturbing use of code words such as intersectionality, a term that refers to a racist left-wing ideology that attempts to classify people into a hierarchy based on their race, their religion, their gender, their sexuality, etc.
That Hirsi is familiar with and supports intersectionality doesn’t in any way, shape, or form suggest that the 16-year-old is a racist. It does, however, make it clear that her own worldview is being strongly influenced by the radical views of her anti-Semitic mother.
Speaking of which, during her own appearance on “Democracy Now!” just four months ago, Omar blamed the longtime pain, suffering, and devastation in Venezuela on the United States.
Her remarks were so stunning that Nikki Haley, the Trump administration’s former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, slammed her for serving the agenda of America’s enemies in China and Russia.
.@IlhanMN the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs. Babies have no medicine. Families have to walk miles in the heat to get the only meal they may have that day. All bc of the corrupt Maduro regime. Your comments are so far from the truth. Cuba and Russia appreciate your support. https://t.co/o1ADtlwrtN

Omar has, for her part, expressed full support for her daughter’s climate-themed activism.
“It’s really important when we get to see young people who are excited about not just waiting for their time to lead but are leading and recognizing that they have space to take up and, um, and policies to propose that will impact the way their future is going to look,” she said to reporters earlier this week.
“My daughter, who’s 16, is the leader here in the United States for the Youth Climate Strike, and she’s inspired by people like Greta [Thunberg].”

The concern by many adults is that teens such as Hirsi and Thunberg have been brainwashed to believe a far-left narrative that’s not actually true. For instance, these teens, of which Hirsi and Thunberg are just two out of many, genuinely believe the world has only 11 years or so left to exist.
During a set of climate change-themed protests Friday in Vancouver, children reportedly expressed not wanting to have kids because they don’t want their children to grow up “in a wasteland.”
“I’d like to grow old, maybe have kids, see them go to college and not live in a wasteland, you know?” one child reportedly said. “I don’t want to have kids, and know that I’m bringing them into a world where everything could go wrong at any minute and live in fear like I feel like I often do.”
There’s no evidence that Earth is slated to turn into a wasteland, but because of propaganda pushed by members of the far-left — including Omar and her allies in Congress — a shocking number of children believe otherwise.
Kids are so worried about this “environmental doom,” in fact, that a large number of them are suffering from anxiety because of it.
“Rising numbers of children are being treated for ‘eco-anxiety’, experts have said, as they warn parents against ‘terrifying’ their youngsters with talk of climate catastrophe,” The Telegraph has confirmed.
