A newly discovered video of Democrat Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar shows the lawmaker mocking Americans for being scared of the al-Qaeda terrorist group.

The video surfaced just says after she referred to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.”

In the video, Omar is seen recalling listening to a college professor talk about the terrorist group, mocking him for externalizing his anxiety about al-Qaeda.

“The thing that was interesting it the was was that every time the professor said ‘al-Qaeda’ he sort of, his shoulders went up,” Omar said.

She then mockingly acted out the professor’s mannerisms when he would talk about al-Qaeda and Hezbollah. Omar and the host both found the topic hilarious.

The Democrat went on to equate those terrorist groups with U.S. and British forces.

“But it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity. You don’t say ‘England’ with an intensity. You don’t say ‘the Army’ with an intensity,” Omar said. “But you say these names because you want that word to carry weight.”

It's just the latest controversy for Omar, who is still reeling from her string of anti-Semitic remarks and anti-American statements.

Earlier this week, she referred to 9/11 as an incident where "some people did something."

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said during a CAIR fundraiser last month.

Does Rep. Omar belong in Congress?
