Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has torched Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over the radical Democrat's recent calls to tear down America's political and economic systems.

The GOP senator urged Omar to resign after the far-left lawmaker expanded on her calls for "dismantling" the police to include attacks on the U.S economy.

Omar made the controversial comments Tuesday during the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus event in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

During a speech at the "anti-racism" event in her home state, Omar told the crown "we are fighting to tear down" the "economy and political systems," adding that "as long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality.

"We cannot stop at criminal justice system," she added.

"We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Videos of Omar's controversial remarks have gone viral on social media.

WATCH:

One clip prompted condemnation from Blackburn, who tweeted, “Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it.

"Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.”

Omar had tweeted earlier about the event during which she made her comments, writing, “The murder of George Floyd reawakened calls to address racism in policing and reform our criminal justice system.”

Omar's Congressional District in Minnesota served as a hotbed for protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police.

Last month, Omar also called for the Minneapolis Police Department to be dismantled.

While joining radical calls to abolish the police, Omar described cops as a "cancer" that "we have to amputate."

"The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root,” Omar told a cheering crowd.

"And so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer and we allow for something beautiful to rise.

"And that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us.”
