NYU Students Blame Chelsea Clinton for New Zealand Attacks

17 March, 2019, 01:06 | Author: Myra Gill

Conservatives came to Chelsea Clinton's defense after a video surfaced of a New York University student verbally berating her on Friday at a vigil to honor the people who died in the New Zealand shooting.

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

Alleged gunman, Brenton, 28, is an Australian personal trainer and he allegedly killed 49 people and injured 48 others at two mosques in Christchurch, NZ on March 15. The blame seemed to be brought on because Chelsea criticized the words of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) on Twitter last month after Omar accused the nonprofit lobbying group, American Israel Public Affairs Committee, of paying congress members to support Israel.

Clinton did not apologize, but said, "Certainly, it was never my intention". I do believe words matter. "I believe we have to show solidarity with each other", Clinton told the students. Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton was among the many people who condemned the violence, saying that we "need a global response to the global threat of violent white nationalism".

"These out of control activists get into a pregnant woman's face and blame her condemnation of Rep. Omar's anti-Semitic remarks as the cause of the Christchurch terror attacks", Loesch said. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. "Anyone who doesn't understand this is part of the problem", the president's eldest son added.

A male student in the crowd yelled, "What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" Clinton was among the many prominent voices denouncing Omar for her remarks on Israel, which were deemed anti-Semetic by many US political figures.

"I didn't tell Chelsea Clinton she was the one who put a gun to Muslims' heads", she tweeted. Clinton called out the freshman Democrat for allegedly trafficking in anti-Semitism.

"I'm so sorry that you feel that way".

"I$3 was on the verge of tears all day today and actually cried on my into and during prayer but the charade of a vigil where more non-[M] uslims than [M] uslims spoke and [C] helsea [C] linton was invited made me so viscerally angry and [I] will not apologize for that", she said.
