50 Muslims were brutally murdered in a racially motivated attack by a white supremacist in Christchurch, New Zealand last week.
Using a semi-automatic weapon, the killer burst into the mosque during worship hours and began open firing while live-streaming the shooting.
Victims range from those like 71-year Daoud Nabi, an Afghanistan refugee, to a three-year-old child.
The sorrow and grief these families must be feeling is unimaginable.
This gruesome attack was rightfully condemned worldwide and further highlighted the need to combat dangerous ideologies.
Mass killings should be a time for unity within our country and make us reflect on what we can do to better dispel the hate that encourages individuals to commit such an act.
Instead, radical-left wing students used the opportunity to blindside a grieving Chelsea Clinton.
Right after the shooting, Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Hillary and Bill Clinton who is also pregnant, went to attend a prayer vigil for the victims.
The vigil was held at the Islamic Center at New York University where hundreds of others gathered to pay their respects to the deceased.
Clinton was not given a speaking role or asked to appear as a guest, she attended the event like anyone else to show solidarity with the Muslim community.
It was then that after the ceremony concluded, where two left-wing radical students decided to take the extraordinary step to confront Clinton simply for showing her face at the event.
The videowhich was created by twitter user @itsme_esor who describes herselfas a “Jewish leftist,” shows another female who she identifies as anti-Israel activist @vivafalastin railing into Clinton just for showing up at the vigil.
“My best friend @vivafalastin told @ChelseaClinton that it’s a disgrace that she came to the vigil, calling out Chelsea’s Islamophobia and hypocrisy,” @itsme_esor noted in her tweet.
Such a hateful statement at a vigil is disgraceful itself.
But what is truly despicable, is what transpired in the 30-second clip.
“This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world,” notes @vivafalastin as she accosts Clinton in the astonishing video. “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.”
Snaps of approval from other students can be heard @vivafalastin delves deeper into her tirade.
The clip ends with Clinton telling the crowd of students she is “sorry” for making them feel that while the students scream back “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?”
You may be wondering what words Chelsea Clinton espoused that supposedly led to the horrific shooting in New Zealand.
To the activists, it was her recent condemnation of Congressman Ilhan Omar’s remarks that stated Americans who support Israel just do it for the “Benjamins baby.”
That’s right, these radical left-wing students blame Chelsea Clinton’s condemnation of blatant anti-Semitic with the brutal massacre of 50 innocent people.
But what’s even more remarkable than the itself is what transpires next.
and shows the reprehensible intent of the confrontation.
In a follow up tweet, @itsme_esor posted her Venmo account information (a payment software application) and solicitied the public for funds to continue her ‘activism.’
She later deleted the Venmo tweet claiming it was a “joke” after intense backlash from other twitter users.
Yes, these two girls seriously used the New Zealand massacre to ask for money from the public.
It gets better. The girls then went on to later do an interview with the prestigious Washington Postand write an opinion piece for BuzzFeed defending their disgusting attacks.
We shouldn’t be surprised to see these girls on television at some point, making the media circuit for their newfound fame.
Truly, it shows the reprehensible nature of both of them.
Harassing a pregnant woman at a prayer vigil didn’t go far enough, they wouldn’t achieve their objective of free funds and public attention.
It is hard to think of a more disgusting act then this. But I won’t hold my breath for too long.
