Chelsea Clinton tried to attend a vigil at New York University to show respect for the victims of the disgusting massacre in New Zealand but pro-Muslim activists used the opportunity to berate her for calling out anti-Semitism.
Maajid continued: "I found it incredibly disturbing the way they treated Chelsea Clinton and when the far-left start treating those in their own political camp with hostility just because they don't use the precise language they want them to use, then what's the difference between them and the far-right?" I do believe words matter. "I believe we have to show solidarity".
"This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put into the world", she said. "I want you to know that".
"I don't think..." the girl replied, when another student interrupted: "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. "We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate". Asked by Ungar-Sargon, who was paying American politicians to think pro-Israel, Omar responded: "AIPAC".

Clinton never did say anything hateful about Muslims, nor did she attack Muslims in any way.
Clinton has not responded to the harassment yet, but has retweeted others responding to the attack itself, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) erroneous claim that President Donald Trump is enforcing a "Muslim ban" in America. 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. "Agreed. It should go without saying but neither myself, @ChelseaClinton or Spyro the Dragon had anything to do with the tragedy in New Zealand". Former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, 63, also took to Twitter to support Chelsea.
According to The Washington Post and The Independent, the incident stemmed from comments Clinton made last month, when she rebuked Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar for allegedly perpetuating anti-Semitic tropes.
"We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism", she tweeted on February 10.
