    Activists accuse Chelsea Clinton of causing New Zealand massacre because she condemned Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism

    Activists accuse Chelsea Clinton of causing New Zealand massacre because she condemned Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism

    Last month, Chelsea Clinton was among the many Democrats who condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her anti-Semitic ravings.

    Yesterday, Chelsea was surrounded by a mob of NYU students who berated her for these comments and blamed her and her comments for the New Zealand mosque attack that left 49 dead and another 48 injured.

    According to the students in the released video, Chelsea’s condemnation of Omar’s anti-Semitism was directly responsible for the New Zealand mosque attack.

    The Daily Mail reports:

    Muslim students have berated Chelsea Clinton at a vigil for the victims of the New Zealand mosques massacre, saying she is to blame for the attack.

    Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, was attending the vigil at New York University on Friday when senior Leen Dweik began castigating her in an astonishing moment caught on video.

    ‘This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world,’ says Dweik, gesturing to the vigil for the 49 who were killed in Christchurch when a white nationalist shooter stormed two mosques.

    ‘And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deeply – 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there,’ Dweik continues, jabbing her index finger toward Clinton as other students snap their fingers in apparent approval of her words.

    The activist in the video and her friend who shared it bragged about it on Buzzfeed:

    We did a double take when we first noticed Chelsea Clinton was at the vigil. Just weeks before this tragedy, we bore witness to a bigoted, anti-Muslim mob coming after Rep. Ilhan Omar for speaking the truth about the massive influence of the Israel lobby in this country. As people in unwavering solidarity with Palestinians in their struggle for freedom and human rights, we were profoundly disappointed when Chelsea Clinton used her platform to fan those flames. We believe that Ilhan Omar did nothing wrong except challenge the status quo, but the way many people chose to criticize Omar made her vulnerable to anti-Muslim hatred and death threats.

    It’s an attempt to prevent criticism of anti-Semitism:

    Following release of the video clip of the confrontation, the internet lit up in response as some on the left leapt to Chelsea’s defense, and the person who first tweeted the video apparently falsely claimed that she was getting legal advice from none other than Michael Avenatti.

    This person is, according to her Twitter profile, a “Jewish leftist, organizer, parody ire & known in alt-right circles as “Antifa chick R*se.” , she/ her, instagram.”

    She also seems a bit unhinged.

    And a bit of a snowflake.

    Having long been the victims of such tactics, the right was quick to come to Chelsea’s defense; however, Michelle Malkin shares a reminder for us all.

    I thought the popular narrative was that President Trump was responsible for this–now it’s Chelsea Clinton who’s responsible? How about the guy who pulled the trigger?

    Leen Dweik’s and Rose Asaf’s criticism of Chelsea Clinton employs self-defeating logic. If Clinton’s criticism of Ilhan Omar has no merit then neither do Dweik’s and Asaf’s criticism of Clinton. Dweik and Asaf accused Clinton of being anti-Muslim even though Clinton’s criticism of Omar didn’t even mention the fact that she is Muslim. Thus, Dweik’s and Asaf’s argument is that Clinton’s tweet is anti-Muslim due to the mere fact that the person it criticized happened to be Muslim. The same logic would prove Clinton was right to criticize Omar for anti-semitism. Clinton accused Omar of anti-semitism even though Omar’s criticism of American supporters of Israel didn’t even mention that they are Jewish. Thus, Clinton’s argument is that Omar’s statement was anti-semitic due to the mere fact that the people it criticized were Jewish.

    If Dweik and Asaf were right to call Clinton anti-Muslim then it means that Clinton was right to call Omar anti-semitic. But if Clinton was right to call Omar anti-semitic then it would mean that Dweik and Asaf had no good reason to criticize Clinton. The potential damage Dweik and Asaf could do to the pro-Palestine movement in the U.S. in incalculable. For years, one of the movement’s main arguments has been that criticism of Israel is not necessarily anti-semitic. These two now reject the logic of that argument in order to accuse others of being anti-Muslim. If the pro-Palestine movement has any sense it will immediately throw Dweik and Asaf under the bus.
