Republicans pounced after Ilhan Omar called for dismantling systems of oppression

On Monday, right-wing Twitter personalities misleadingly paraphrased a speech from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) calling to “dismantl[e] the whole system of oppression wherever we may find it,” claiming that she was instead calling to dismantle America’s “economy and political system” — a phrase she had used earlier in the speech.

One person to pick it up was Donald Trump Jr., who then proceeded to tie Omar to former Vice President Joe Biden.Advertisement:

However, Omar promptly clapped back at Trump Jr. for twisting her words.

Omar, the first Somali-American woman to serve in Congress, has been a frequent target for the GOP because of her unapologetically left-wing views and her criticism of Israeli military policy.
