Chelsea Clinton berated by NYU student for 'stoking' hatred behind NZ massacre

  • Donald Trump Jr. Chelsea Clinton Ilhan Omar- collage

"I'm so sorry that you feel that way", Clinton responded. The tragedy came just a week after the U.S. House voted on a resolution condemning hate speech, inspired by Omar's comments. "We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism", Chelsea tweeted about Omar's accusation. "I believe we have to show solidarity", Clinton told the angry students.

Students confronted Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, over statements she'd made denouncing anti-Semitism.

Clinton was among the chorus of critics who condemned Omar's comments. According to The New York Post, Clinton was attending a vigil on the campus for the 49 people killed in the attacks earlier that day.

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

Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, who has worked closely with the Clintons for decades, saw a different motive. "Spend your time fighting that instead of each other".

There has been a lot of talk over the last 24 hours about how certain people's rhetoric, or lack of condemnation of white nationalism and hate may inspire actions like those seen in the massacre of 49 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand yesterday. It is alleged that Tarrant was motivated by neo-fascist, white supremacist beliefs he laid out in an extensive manifesto published several weeks before the attack.

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 USA officials to support Israeli policies. Trump is "making sure that those folks in his base who probably can't be aligned with him publicly know that I still appreciate the support, I'm with you, I'm over here", Carson said in a CNN interview Friday night.

"It's all about the Benjamins baby", Omar said in a since-deleted Tweet responding to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's announcement he would take action against Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) for being critical of the Jewish state.

Chelsea Clinton retweeted it.
