Radical Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar stunned many with her responses on Monday when asked if she is "pro-Al Qaeda" and would condemn a left-wing Antifa member would was killed over the weekend after trying to attack an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Tacoma, Washington.
During a press conference alongside fellow Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, Omar was asked: “Do you support al Qaeda?”
Her response: “I won’t dignify that with an answer.”
She refused to condemn the terror group or say that she is not pro-Al Qaeda.
Can someone please show me where Ilhan Omar has condemned al Qaeda... because she certainly dodged the question today... and if Trump dodged White Nationalist questions, it's news for a week.— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) July 15, 2019

Then, Omar responded with silence when asked if she would condemn the far-left group Antifa.
"Will you condemn the Antifa attack in Washington over the weekend?" The Rebel reporter Keean Bexte asked Omar as she left the press conference.
"It's easy to condemn terrorism. Will you condemn it?" Bexte asked when Omar doesn't respond. "Antifa firebombed a facility in Tacoma over the weekend — it's an ICE facility — will you condemn them for that?"
Omar continued to ignore Bexte as he continued to ask if she thought it was "laudable" to bomb an ICE facility if they are indeed concentration camps, as she and other radical Democrats have claimed.
Willem Van Spronsen was shot and killed outside the detention facility after he hurled Molotov cocktails at the building and cars.
Omar stunned many again over the weekend with a slew of controversial remarks that will not sit well with most Americans.
Whiles speaking at the far-left event Netroots Nation, Omar accused Americans of treating illegal aliens worse than dogs.
What's more, Omar went on to say Americans treat illegal aliens "worse than dogs" because they're racist.
If America is a nation that treats immigrants "worse than dogs," then why are tens of thousands of immigrants risking their lives every single day in an attempt to enter the U.S.?
Since becoming a member of Congress in January, Omar has come under fire several times for making anti-Semitic and controversial remarks.
Last month, the Minnesota Democrat claimed it is “un-American” for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to capture and detain illegal aliens.
During an interview in May on the Nation’s “Next Left” podcast, Omar insulted Trump voters and called them “ignorant.”
Before that, she was swiftly condemned for describing the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something.”
