Ilhan Omar’s daughter, Isra Hirsi, helped spread around a list of supplies needed for the violent riot in Minneapolis Wednesday evening
Isra Hirsi, co-founder of the “grassroots” anti-capitalist (their term, translated, socialist) US Youth Climate Strike, helped signal boost a list of supplies requested by the Minneapolis branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Among the provisions that the DSA requested, were the following:
Plywood for shields
In addition to typical first aid tools to counteract inflammation caused by tear gas and pepper spray.
Here’s the tweet she helped spread around, below is her justification for it:
Want to help out your comrades protesting at the 3rd precinct (at Lake and Minnehaha?)— Twin Cities DSA 🌹 (@TwinCitiesDSA) May 27, 2020
Here’s a good list of much needed supplies (except for milk! Water is always better for eyewashing than milk!! Please don’t bring milk!) pic.twitter.com/DZxwZlrAIh
The implication here—that the protesters needed shields—is that they were preparing for a violent protest well in advance.
When Andy Ngo, editor-at-large for The Post Millennial, pointed out that she had just broadcast a supply list for a violent protest to her 100,000 followers, Hirsi responded saying she was just being “empathetic.”
lmao the fact that me trying to help people is seen as bad. i didn’t even say i support the actions at the protest. i just CARE— isra hirsi (@israhirsi) May 28, 2020
Realizing that this might not be the greatest look, she quickly followed up with a second tweet, “lmao the fact that me trying to help people is seen as bad. i didn’t even say i support the actions at the protest. i just CARE”.
That’s an odd turn of phrase. Why would someone try to aid a violent mob if they didn’t agree with them?
Nationalist Review typically doesn’t comment on the opinions or actions of the children of politicians, but considering Hirsi’s involvement in a significantly sized political organization and the damaged caused to Minneapolis—one she’s now played a role in—we’ve decided this story was worth printing.
