At a concert celebrating Somalian Independence Day featuring Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar in Minneapolis, MN last night, Ilhan Omar was invited onstage where she received a tremendous welcoming: a roar of boos and “Get Out!” Yikes. As if being accused of marrying her brother wasn’t bad enough, the Minnesota Representative was booed by her own community. As it turns out, when people go to a concert, maybe just give them what they paid for.
The video from LeftismforU went viral on Twitter. It appears that Omar was preparing to give the singer some kind of an award, but was unable to because every time she opened her mouth the boos became louder. She and everyone else on stage awkwardly laughed and tried to calm the audience down by moving their hands. Maybe controlling people is desirable for the Democrat who shows disdain for America’s institutions, but you can’t lower the audience’s volume simply by waving your hand. Sorry.
In another clever tweet, LeftismforU wrote, “I don’t get what the hype about this is. All that happened was that some people did something,” referring to the congresswoman’s comments on 9/11 back in 2019.
“For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen, and frankly I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” Omar said. “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
Omar is a naturalized citizen born in Mogadishu, Somalia. She arrived in the United States in 1995 after she and her family sought asylum from the Somali Civil War. She became an American citizen in 2000 at 17 years old, where she went on to study political science in college. From there, the young Democrat aimed her sights on the country that took her in, criticizing America.
When Christians were singing on a plane, she blamed Islamophobia. She has said that America does not live those values that supposedly make her great, instead saying that she was “ashamed” that it lives in “hypocrisy.” She has also accused Israel of “hypnotizing the world,” accusing supporters of Israel as having “dual loyalty.”
Omar was allegedly the subject of a meeting by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) two years ago for marriage fraud where she married her brother in order to give him American citizenship, according to the New York Post. Two FBI agents reportedly held a meeting to discuss Omar’s 2009 marriage to Ahmed Elmi, whom the representative described as a “British citizen” on their marriage license, and while they have brought their information to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Department of Education, there was no commitment to opening an investigation.
Before the 2020 election, Minneapolis Police were investigating claims that there were individuals tied to the representative who engaged in ballot harvesting. A video surfaced by Project Veritas weeks before the election allegedly showing a ballot harvester bragging that Omar came up with the scheme. After facing public criticism, Omar and her communications director pivoted to Trump’s taxes.
