As the world tries to understand what pushed Brenton Tarrant, a white nationalist to murder 49 innocent people in two Christchurch mosques in New Zealand, Chelsea Clinton is getting dragged for inciting violence similar to that one.
On Friday night, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton and dozens of people took part in an event in New York City that was put together to pay tribute to the Muslims who lost their lives in the hands of the mass murderer.
Very quickly, the former first daughter was verbally attacked by several students who told her she was not welcomed at a vigil for the victims.
One woman, who is said to be a Bernie Sanders supporter, bashed Clinton by telling her that she "stoked" the hatred behind the massacre caused by an Australian terrorist who ranted about Donald Trump, building a wall, and left a lengthy manifesto where he spoke about protecting the country against “white genocide” and “invaders.”
The angry student said: “This, right here, is a result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world. And I want you to know that, and I want you to feel that deep down inside. Forty-nine people died because of the rhetoric you put out there.”
Clinton responded by saying: “I’m so sorry that you feel that way. Certainly, it was never my intention. I do believe words matter. I believe we have to show solidarity.”
Another student slammed Clinton for a recent Twitter post where she went after Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, over the congresswoman's alleged anti-Semitic remarks.
Clinton tweeted in early February: "We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism."
Before attending the vigil, Clinton tweeted her condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the horrific Christchurch tragedy.
She tweeted: "Heartbroken & horrified by the white nationalist terrorist attack during Jummah on the mosques and Muslim community in Christchurch. Keeping all affected by this tragedy in my heart and prayers. We need a global response to the global threat of violent white nationalism."
Do you agree or disagree with those criticisms against Clinton?
