Video shows Chelsea Clinton berated for her 'rhetoric' for causing mosque shootings

Video shows Chelsea Clinton berated for her 'rhetoric' for causing mosque shootings

Chelsea Clinton received an earful in New York City on Friday night from a college student who said the former first daughter "stoked" the hatred behind the massacre earlier in the day in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Chelsea Clinton was confronted by angry people at a vigil for the 49 people killed in the terrorist shooting in New Zealand on Friday.

"I'm so sorry you feel that way", Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, replied. "Certainly, it was my never my intention".

One student at the vigil approached Clinton and specifically referenced her condemnation of Ilhan's comments, arguing that they played a role in creating an atmosphere ripe for anti-Muslim violence.

"This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put into the world", the student tells Clinton in the video.

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?"

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" "The 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there", added Dweik - who was wearing a Bernie Sanders 2020 T-shirt. The tragedy came just a week after the U.S. House voted on a resolution condemning hate speech, inspired by Omar's comments. Asked by Ungar-Sargon, who was paying American politicians to think pro-Israel, Omar responded: "AIPAC". The son of President Donald Trump, 72, didn't hesitate to speak his mind in his tweet and even suggested praise for Chelsea.

"A lot of students feel uncomfortable", said Esor Fasa, who posted the video. Clinton tried to deescalate the situation, but the students continued, with more joining in.

Before the incident, she took aim at the "caucasity" of the fact that Clinton was invited, accusing her of "stoking Islamophobia and racism surrounding Ilhan Omar." . "Anyone who doesn't understand that is part of the problem", he tweeted.

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

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.
