Chelsea Clinton Harassed At Vigil Over Past Comments Condemning Anti-Semitism

Muslim activist tears into Chelsea Clinton's 'caucasity' at NZ victims' vigil (VIDEO)

Students from New York University approached Ms Clinton at a vigil held for the 49 worshipers who were killed at two mosques in New Zealand.

"This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world", senior student Leen Dweik told Clinton Friday in a video posted to social media. I do believe words matter. "I believe we have to show solidarity with each other", Clinton told the students. "And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep down inside".

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" another student asked.

"Forty-nine people are dead because of the rhetoric that you put out there", she charged. "We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate".

Conservative commentator Candace Owens, 29, who was reportedly mentioned in the alleged NZ gunman, Brenton Tarrant's manifesto, responded to Donald Jr.'s tweet and also defended Chelsea.

Senior Leen Dweik began pointing her finger in Clinton's face and angrily accusing her rhetoric of inspiring the mass shooter.

WashPost: O'Rourke's Donor Roots Are GOP Businessmen
O'Rourke has three days of campaign events in Iowa planned and has promised to travel the country listening to would-be voters. He promised to offer the kind of bipartisan, optimistic vision for the future that helped him almost upset Republican Sen.

"Chelsea should be praised for speaking up, Trump wrote".

Clinton has not responded to the harassment yet, but has retweeted others responding to the attack itself, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) erroneous claim that President Donald Trump is enforcing a "Muslim ban" in America. "Anyone who doesn't understand this is part of the problem". "Agreed. It should go without saying but neither myself, @ChelseaClinton or Spyro the Dragon had anything to do with the tragedy in New Zealand". "No one "MADE" him do it".

Last month, the former first daughter joined throngs of Democrats and Republicans in condemning language used by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), one of the two first Muslim women elected to Congress, that they saw as perpetuating anti-Semitic stereotypes.

Omar, a freshman Democratic representative of Minnesota and practicing Muslim, stirred up controversy last month when she criticized Israel's treatment of Palestinians, saying that lobbyists paid US officials to support Israeli policies.

The girl who was seen calling out Clinton in the video appears to be a pro-Palestine Muslim activist and a sympathiser of the Black Lives Matter movement.
