    'Get the f*** out of here': Squad member Ilhan Omar is booed by 10,000-strong Somali music festival crowd in her OWN district - days after she suggested Minnesota is worse than a refugee camp

    Ilhan Omar struggled to speak over a crowd booing her at a concert Saturday


    Ilhan Omar smiled through a chorus of boos and jeers at a Somali music festival in her home state of Minnesota over Independence Day weekend.

    The squad member made an appearance at a concert featuring Somali singer Soldaan Seraar at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday night, but a viral video shows that much of the crowd was not happy to see her.

    Some videos show people chanting 'get out!' at the congresswoman and telling her to 'get the f*** out of here.'


    It is not immediately clear what prompted the boos, but a Newsweek article said that some people suggest it was related to the Somali-American congresswoman's support for abortion and LGBTQ rights.

    Another possible reason for the cold shoulder could be her comments Thursday claiming that Minnesota has worse conditions than a Somali refugee camp.

    I have my doubts about the former unless Somalis are (as a whole) against the gay agenda and pro-life. But let's say that's true, I can't see those same people going to this kinda a festival where you got people who clearly ARE pro-gay and pro-abortion.

    Probably the latter is more likely. I mean, a politician pisses off the general area, especially with a completely false statement, people are gonna remember that. I've never been to Minnesota but I mean, it can't be worse than Mississippi. I think the mutants there've outnumbered normal humans for at least a century. Look, the next time you're there - if most of the hands you shake have three fingers or less, get out!

    Booing members of the squad is the appropriate thing to do.

    I doubt it. No matter how bad the person is, Democrat voters are going to vote Democrat. It's about party, not country.

    Doesn't sound like her re-election hopes are very good.

    If I didn't listen to musicians who have views I disagree with I wouldn't listen to anyone.

    As a film buff I still enjoy Leni Reifenstahl's films despite them being open, obvious Nazi propaganda. Art and the message often don't align.

    Too bad we can’t deport her back to a Somali refugee camp. I can understand too why they might boo her immoral positions on the LGBTQ and abortion issues.
