Students Blame Chelsea Clinton for Christchurch Massacre, Force Her to Apologise

Students Blame Chelsea Clinton for Christchurch Massacre, Force Her to Apologise

New York University students can be seen on a video confronting Chelsea Clinton at a vigil Friday night for the victims of the New Zealand mosque attacks, blaming her rhetoric for the attacks.

Many are defending Chelsea Clinton after she was verbally attacked for speaking out against anti-Semitism.

According to The Washington Post and The Independent, the incident stemmed from comments Clinton made last month, when she rebuked Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar for allegedly perpetuating anti-Semitic tropes.

Clinton did not apologize, but said, "Certainly, it was never my intention".

"We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism", Clinton tweeted on February 10. "I want you to know that".

"Forty-nine people are dead because of the rhetoric that you put out there", she charged.

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?"

TMZ reported that Michael Jackson's daughter was rushed to hospital after being found in her LA home this morning. Jackson was transported to a hospital and is now in stable condition.

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" asked a male student nearby, seemingly frustrated.

In a since-deleted tweet, Omar suggested that politicians only support Israel because of donations from wealthy Jewish people. Moreover, in 2012, Omar tweeted, "Israel has hypnotized the world".

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. We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism.

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

While she was definitely cornered and slammed for her words, social media did not agree with the students.

"Chelsea Clinton was trying to speak out against bigotry and her words were used to claim she was a bigot", said journalist Tim Pool. He has been arrested and charged with one count of murder in connection with the attacks.

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". "Fortunately we have millennials to suss it out for us".
