Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was met by a chorus of boos and calls to “get the f–k out” when she appeared onstage at a music festival in Minneapolis over the weekend.
The crowd at the Target Center promptly unleashed a torrent of boos that lasted for more than a minute.
Others in the mostly Somali audience shouted “Get out” and some yelled “Get the f–k out of here.”
Omar, a member of the progressive “Squad” that includes Bronx and Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, tried to calm the unruly gathering.
“OK, OK, OK, OK, OK, we don’t have all night,” Omar said as she made a “tamp it down” gesture with her hands, the video shows.
Video on Omar’s Twitter account shows her taking the stage, but the clip is cut off 14 seconds in, when the booing begins.
It’s unclear what sparked the outburst against Omar, but the Republican challenging the two-term incumbent suggested her comments on LGBTQ issues and opposition to the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade played a role.
”Ilhan Omar’s BOOOD by nearly 10K SOMALIS at a sold out, highly anticipated Somali music concert at Target Center in Minneapolis!,” Shukri Abdirahman posted on Twitter, linking to the video.
“This’s what she gets for trading her Godly, Conservative values for the sinful LGBTQIA’s & the promiscuous abortionists.”
Omar, who also has a history of anti-Semitic comments, is heavily favored to win a third term representing her district, which covers all of the city of Minneapolis
