Why Chelsea Was Verbally Attacked
There’s a viral video making its rounds showing Chelsea Clinton being verbally attacked by a pro-Muslim student at a New York University vigil. Clinton attended the vigil to show her respect for the 49 people gunned down last week by an anti-Islamic terrorist in New Zealand.
The angry student blamed Clinton for the attack because she publicly condemned anti-Semitic rhetoric from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). According to the heckler, Clinton’s opposition to hate speech contributed to the political climate that fueled the massacre.
Last month Clinton openly criticized Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism. Here’s what she tweeted:
Co-signed as an American. We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism.

The video shows a very angry activist pointing towards the vigil, telling Clinton,
“After all that you have done, all the Islamophobia that you have stoked — this right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words you have put out in the world.”
The video goes on to show Clinton, in a very uncomfortable position, making several attempts to defuse the situation by apologizing to the student, saying, “I’m so sorry you feel that way.”
The student activist, Leen Dweik, kept interrupting Clinton by loudly asking, “What does ‘I’m sorry you feel that way’ mean!?”
Dweik said to Clinton, while repeatedly poking a finger in her face, “The 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there.” Chelsea could barely get a word in, but kept trying to apologize.
Donald Trump J.r Defends Chelsea Clinton
Trump Jr. defended Clinton, and tweeted the following:
It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism. We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.
