Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is a “proud” mother of three children, including 17-year-old daughter, Isra Hirsi, who apparently shares her mother’s radical left views.
In a TikTok Live video clip shared by young conservative activist CJ Pearson, Isra appears to call a group of U.S. soldiers “b*tches” who are “actively killing innocent children abroad” while “furthering American imperialism.”
“In this video, @israhirsi – the daughter of Congresswoman @IlhanMN – calls American soldiers ‘bitches’ and accuses them of ‘furthering American imperialism’ and ‘actively killing innocent children abroad.’ Where does she get these views from? I guess the apple doesn’t fall far!” Pearson commented as he shared the video.

Isra’s remarks are made as a video inset shows what appears to be a group of soldiers calling someone a “b*tch.”
“I know that this is a joke, but the fact that these men are calling me a bitch while they are actively killing innocent children abroad and also furthering American imperialism makes me think they are actually the b*tch,” Isra can be heard saying.
Omar’s daughter responded to Pearson online to say he is “obsessed” with her, and she challenged his claim.
“Also the article is factually incorrect. The men in the video clearly call those watching “bitches”, which is why I used the word,” Isra tweeted, referring to a website article on the incident.

Omar is a Somali refugee who immigrated to the U.S. in 1992, she would become one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in 2018. Her three children were all born in the U.S.
While Omar’s marriage history is a mess, her children are with Ahmed Hirsi, who she reportedly had a “faith-based” marriage with, while legally married to another man — a man who may be her biological brother, who she allegedly married for immigration purposes.
Omar would eventually divorce her alleged brother and legally marry Hirsi, only to later leave him after allegedly having an extramarital affair with a campaign consultant. After the couple’s quick divorce, Omar married the consultant, Tim Mynett, in March 2020 — the lawmaker has steered hundreds of thousands of dollars to her now-husband’s political consulting firm.
Isra has been touted in the media as a “climate justice activist” who advocates for the Green New Deal. She was featured on national television last year for helping push a climate strike.
In a Sept. 2019 interview with Essence, she spoke about the impact capitalism, white supremacy, and colonialism have had on the climate.
“The climate crisis is such a massive issue that everything is impacted by it … everything is intertwined in some way,” she said.
“I’ve been on this earth for 16 and a half years and my entire existence has been the climate crisis, right?” Isra added. “My generation didn’t have the privilege to live in a world where we always had clean air.”
And make no mistake, mom is proud of her daughter.
Proud mom here! 🤗I hope other Members of Congress will join me in this strike.
We need to listen to the wisdom of our kids! https://t.co/sIYW6p7S3U

Perhaps, the most troubling aspect of the story is the litany of online responses from the left insisting that Isra is correct in her assessment of U.S. troops.
On the other hand, there was plenty of focus on the teen’s mother — here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Hey @IlhanMN, do you agree with your daughter that US soldiers are “furthering American imperialism”, “bitches” and child murderers?

I cant believe our country has gone this far without enforcing our laws. This kid can say what she wants. Thats her right. But the fact her mother is getting away with blatantly breaking the law disturbs me and makes me feel distrustful of those who should be enforcing the law.

The freedom to say such things is protected, though they’re obviously not warranted or appreciated.
In many countries, including her mother’s home nation, such statements would cause one terrible govt or militia-sponsored hardship.
Welcome to America, Omars.

Scary and speaks volumes about her mothers disdain for America.

Omar has no love or respect for this country and that’s what she is teaching her children.
