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. ​

Video from Saturday night’s event featuring Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar​ showed Omar, the first Somali-American elected to Congress, walk on to the stage with her husband Tim Mynett.

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. 

“O​K, ​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.

V​ideo 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
