Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continued to show her disdain for Israel and the Jewish people on Saturday after she mocked a group of hundreds of pro-Israel demonstrators who showed up to protest her at a fundraiser event she was attending.
The large group of protesters rallied outside an event in Los Angeles, California, where Omar of Minnesota spoke “at the fundraising event for the Council of American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles,” Haaretz reported.
The Los Angeles Daily News reported: “Outside the hotel ahead of the event were at least 1,000 people protesting, creating a sea of American and Israeli flags along Canoga Avenue and picket signs with messages the likes of [which stated] ‘Your hate makes us stronger.'”
Omar, a documented anti-Semite, responded to the overwhelmingly negative reaction to her presence at the event by mocking the “very fascinating” protesters.
“I don’t think any of them realize that people like myself and many of the people in this room could care less about what they have to say,” Omar said.
