Ilhan Omar Laughs When Asked to Condemn Antifa Violence - WATCH
Radical Democrat refuses to condemn actions of far-left terror group
Radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) seemingly bursting into laughter after being asked by a reporter to condemn the violence of far-left terrorist group Antifa, according to reports.
Omar refused to condemn the violent actions of the left-wing terror mobs when asked by a reporter, before seeming to burst into laughter when she thought she was out of view of the camera.
The controversial member of Congress, who President Donald Trump described as "anti-USA, pro-terrorist" on Tuesday, was asked for a response to the attempted terror attack by a self-identified far-left Antifa member against an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday.
A reporter from Rebel Media asked "progressive" Democrats if they would condemn the attack, Antifa violence, and violence in general.

Unsurprisingly, Omar and the rest of the so-called "AOC Squad" of freshman lawmakers, namely Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), refused to utter such a simple condemnation.
According to the Daily Wire, Omar, amazingly, apparently thought the questioning was funny, laughing when she was asked about the far-left violence.
“Will you condemn Antifa?” the Rebel’s Keean Bexte asked Ocasio-Cortez and Omar.
“Do you feel like you have any sort of responsibility for their actions?”
Both freshman congresswomen remained silent.
“It’s just like your brother — when you ignore the questions about you marrying your brother, you couldn’t answer it,” he said.
“Do you feel responsible for the violent attack abasing the ICE facility?”
After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter.

As reported by Neon Nettle last month, questions surrounding Omar’s apparent marriage to her alleged brother resurfaced when newly-discovered documents suggested the representative lived with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, while being legally married to Omar’s alleged brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
“It kinda blew up in your face when you didn’t respond about your brother — it made it look like you married him,” Bexte said.
“You could finish that question now if you have an answer.
"Did you marry your brother?”
Omar, stone-faced, again refused to answer.
“Do you feel like you bear any responsibility for what happened?” the reporter continued.
“Ms. Cortez, do you feel responsible at all?”

People, particularly politicians, refuse to answer very straightforward questions when the answer will incriminate them, or worse, make them unelectable. Just like when @Ilhan could not say "I did not marry my brother", she can not say "Terrorism is bad, even if it is Antifa." pic.twitter.com/nLnime5Q44— Keean Bexte (@TheRealKeean) July 15, 2019
As previously noted by Neon Nettle, the man who attacked the ICE facility over the weekend reportedly “used the same ‘concentration camp’ rhetoric” popularized by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez in his manifesto.
"The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are," Ocasio-Cortez said in June.
"They are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn't bother you, I don't, I don't know, I like, we can have, okay whatever."
The open socialist then mentioned the phrase, "Never Again," a reference to the Holocaust.
