The daughter of Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar — kicked out of her college dorm at prestigious $90,000-per-year Barnard last week following her arrest for protesting against Israel — has previously boasted of her pride in being “hyper-woke”.

During a Ted Talk in February 2020, Irsa Hirsi, 21, told the audience she had become known as “token activist, the politically correct (PC) police, and the angry black girl” for “always” speaking up against “something offensive or problematic”. “

“I would say something all the time and kids in my classes used to get super annoyed at me pointing out everything even if it was slightly sexist…but I was proud of it,” she said during the talk she titled “the angry black girl”.

“Eventually people got really annoyed of me being hyper-woke.

“The titles kept coming in and I really claimed the title of being ‘the PC Police’.”

Hirsi, a member of the anti-Israel student group Columbia University Apartheid Divest (CUAD), said she wanted to “use the hyper-woke part of my personality to do some real change”.

“So I joined everything: climate stuff, gun violence prevention,” she explained.

“I felt like I had to and because it also became my brand. I would call out injustices. When you join so many white-dominated groups you feel really alienated.”

Hirsi didn’t immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

Hirsi was one of more than 100 anti-Israel protesters arrested by New York police on the campus of Columbia University last Thursday for refusing to clear out from a tent encampment on the Ivy League school’s campus.

Hirsi said she was held in custody for roughly eight hours, then complained about not getting support from her Barnard, which informed her she had been suspended the same day.

“I was a little bit frantic, like, where am I going to sleep? Where am I gonna go?” she told Teen Vogue after learning she’d been evicted from campus housing and banned from using the dining hall.

“And also all of my s—t is thrown in a random lot. It’s pretty horrible.”

The disgraced student appears to still have the unwavering supporte of her Democratic “squad” member mom, who posted she is ” enormously proud” of her daughter.

In a statement on Sunday, CUAD distanced itself from what it said were “media distractions focusing on inflammatory individuals who do not represent us”.

“Our members have been misidentified by a politically-motivated mob,” the CUAD statement said.

“We have been doxxed in the press, arrested by the NYPD [New York Police Department], and locked out of our homes by the university.

“We have knowingly put ourselves in danger because we can no longer be complicit in Columbia funnelling our tuition dollars and grant funding into companies that profit from death.”

The group is seeking to get the university to divest stocks, funds and endowments from companies which invest in Israel, including Caterpillar, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Elbit Systems, Mekorot, Hapoalim, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin.
