‘Jihad Squad’ meme removed after Illinois GOP shares mock poster on Facebook

by Mark Moore, NY Post  |  Published on July 23, 2019

Leaders of the Illinois Republican Party released a Facebook posting depicting the four House minority freshman Democrats in a movie-type poster as “The Jihad Squad” last week before taking it down over the weekend.

​The meme ​released Friday by the Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association includes a mockup of the lawmakers known as “the Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar.

​”Political jihad is their game,” the posting said. “If you don’t agree with their socialist ideology, you’re racist.”

In a sendup of a 2013 “Gangster Squad” movie poster, it shows Omar with pursed lips brandishing a shotgun, a smiling Pressley aiming a pistol, Ocasio-Cortez wearing a slinky red dress that’s aflame at the bottom and Tlaib screaming.
