Chelsea Clinton Blamed For New Zealand Mosque Massacre - Social Media Defends Her

Chelsea Clinton Blamed For New Zealand Mosque Massacre - Social Media Defends Her

Donald Trump Jr. joined Twitter users in support of Chelsea Clinton on March 16, when he came to her defense after an NYU student blamed her for the mosque terrorist attacks in NZ, during a vigil for the tragedy. That's the causal chain: Chelsea Clinton urged Omar to be more careful with her rhetoric, this contributed in some way to Islamophobia, and then Christchurch happened.

"This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you have put out into the world". The students appear to have been angry that she, herself the wife of a Jewish man, had admonished antisemitism following remarks made by Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who some believed were antisemitic in nature.

In an effort to defuse the tense situation, Clinton apologized several times, although she was continually interrupted. "We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism".

Clinton did not respond to the student angrily, instead apologizing. And I want you to know that and to feel that deeply - 49 people died because of a rhetoric you put out there'.

Another student chimed in on the video asking, "What does 'I'm sorry you feel that way mean?"

Clinton was among establishment Democrats who tore into Omar for her suggestion that the wealthy Israeli lobby has an overbearing influence in USA politics.

"I'm so sorry that you feel that way", Clinton responds.

As noted by Schow, Dweik doubled-down on her Clinton-bashing via Twitter.

As the video of Clinton's confrontation circulated on Friday and Saturday, people on both sides of the spectrum came to defend her as well.

Others were quick to offer Clinton support and mock the Left's "Woke" Olympics, too. However, she added she would still attempt to "disrupt" Clinton if she spoke and say the same things she said in the recorded exchange.

"This is disgusting", Piers Morgan tweeted.

After the very public row with Clinton began making headlines, the activist said that she was receiving "death threats" for "calling a hypocritical white woman out".

Journalist Michael Weiss sarcastically offered: "Seem to have missed the Chelsea Clinton connection to the New Zealand attack".
