Ilhan Omar Booed Off Stage at Somalia Independence Day Concert in Minneapolis (Video)

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was booed and jeered off the stage by a crowd of thousands of Somali-Americans at a concert in Minneapolis Saturday night celebrating Somali Independence Day that featured popular Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar. The audience at the Target Center booed and cursed Omar for a reported ten minutes even as others on stage tried to calm them down. Cries of, “Get out!”, “Get lost!”, “Get the f*** out of here!” and “Shut the f*** up” could be heard.

Audience videos tell the tale:

Shukri Abdirahman, who dropped out of this year’s GOP primary to take on Omar, reposted the video but with harsh commentary, “Ilhan Omar’s BOOOD by nearly 10K SOMALIS at a sold out, highly anticipated Somali music concert at Target Center in Minneapolis! This’s what she gets for trading her Godly, Conservative values for the sinful LGBTQIA’s & the promiscuous abortionists. LET’S GO ILHAN!”

The concert was held to celebrate Somali Independence Day.

Ilhan’s Mn-5 Congressional seat is considered safe by Politico.

A poll released last month by Omar’s campaign shows her solidly ahead for the August 9 primary with 60 percent support among Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party voters.

Among Republicans running for the nomination to take on Omar in the November general election is War Room regular Royce White.
