Isra Hirsi, the daughter of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, believes in making “hella edits” to the US Constitution, abolishing capitalism and that US soldiers are bitches, per her Tik Tok accounts.
Hirsi, age 17, was born during Omar’s now dissolved marriage to Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi. In addition to serving as the co-founder and co-executive director of the U.S. Youth Climate Strike, she also runs two Tik Tok accounts where she posts about her socialist political beliefs.
Tik Tok is a Chinese-owned social media platform that allows users to post short videos, often in response to other videos that have already been uploaded. After a group of US service members posted a Tik Tok that consists of themselves jokingly referring to the viewer as a “bitch,” Hirsi responded, saying that “they’re actually the bitch” because the military is “furthering US imperialism.”
She also accused the soldiers of “actively killing innocent children abroad.”
It does not appear that the service member’s original post was directed towards Hirsi specifically, who has since deleted her video following sharp online criticism.
Awhile later, she released statement on Twitter, saying that her post was a “joke” and that her comments were “clearly satire.” However she maintained that the American military is imperialistic and kills children.
Dozens of Hirsi’s other posts on Tik Tok remain, both on her personal page as well as her explicitly political account that advocates for the abolition of capitalism.
One post on her second account bemoans workers’ “lack of ownership of the means of production,” an apparent allusion to the famous Marxist rallying cry to “seize the means of production.”
