Activist who confronted Chelsea Clinton: She 'hurt our fight against white supremacy'

Activist who confronted Chelsea Clinton: She 'hurt our fight against white supremacy' The student activists who confronted Chelsea Clinton at a vigil in New York City for victims of the New Zealand mosque shootings on Friday said that Clinton's comments concerning Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) criticism of the Israel lobby "made her vulnerable" to threats and criticism from the right, and contributed to Friday's shooting. In a BuzzFeed op-ed posted Saturday, Rose Asaf and Leen Dweik argued that they spoke to Clinton in a now-viral video clip because they "saw an opportunity to have her ear and confront her on her false charge of anti-Semitism against our only Black, Muslim, Somali, and refugee member of Congress.

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.

It happened at a vigil on the New York University campus for the 49 people killed and dozens of others wounded in the attack.

“I’m so sorry that you feel that way,” Clinton responded. “Certainly, it was never my intention. I do believe words matter. I believe we have to show solidarity.”

Some of the NYU students told Clinton she wasn't welcome at the vigil. One of the students referred to Clinton's recent condemnation of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, over the congresswoman's anti-Semitic remarks.

"We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism," Clinton tweeted on Feb. 10.

“This, right here, is a result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world,” one student told Clinton. “And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep down inside. Forty-nine people died because of the rhetoric you put out there.”

On Friday, Clinton tweeted her condolences regarding the Christchurch tragedy.

After the video of the confrontation went viral, Clinton received support on social media. Some examples:
