Leftwing Activists Accuse Chelsea Clinton of Causing the New Zealand Shooting

Washington DC. / Chelsea Clinton attends the 2018 Lincoln Center American Songbook gala honoring HBO's Richard Plepler at Alice Tully Hal

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.

"This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you have put out into the world".

"Heartbroken & horrified by the white nationalist terrorist attack during Jummah on the mosques and Muslim community in Christchurch", Clinton wrote.

The student apparently was referring to Clinton's recent condemnation of anti-Semitic statements by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Clinton, who's pregnant, responded by apologizing for making the students uncomfortable. I do believe words matter.

However, a student at the event told Clinton "her rhetoric" had in fact contributed to help the attacks in New Zealand.

One user tweeted: 'This is absolute horses**t. chelsea clinton calling out ilhan omar's anti semitism isn't islamophobia and blaming her for christchurch is uncalled for. i am muslim and i thought omar crossed the line into anti semitism'. "We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism". The son of President Donald Trump, 72, didn't hesitate to speak his mind in his tweet and even suggested praise for Chelsea. "Anyone who doesn't understand that is part of the problem", he tweeted. Clinton was among the many prominent voices denouncing Omar for her remarks on Israel, which were deemed anti-Semetic by many US political figures.

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

Other Republicans used the confrontation to compare it to how US President Donald Trump's rhetoric has been blamed for stoking violence and allowing a rise to white supremacism.

Omar, who invited Clinton to talk about the issue. "I look forward to building an inclusive movement for justice with you", she added.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, a prominent conservative commentator, agreed and said the blame lies exclusively with the gunman. "Period. No one "MADE" him do it", his tweet read.
