As I’ve mentioned a few times now, a very pregnant Chelsea Clinton was ambushed by two anti-Israel fanatics who apparently think that condemning hatred against Jews makes you evil.
Leen Dweik and Rose Asaf accosted the pregnant Clinton on Friday evening on her way into the memorial service, and accused her of “inciting” the mosque shooter because Clinton had sided against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over her anti-Semitic language. Clinton tweeted last week that it was reasonable to expect American legislators “to not traffic in anti-Semitism.”
“This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world,” Dweik, who was clad in a Bernie Sanders tee, shouted at a shocked Chelsea Clinton. “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,”
Clinton maintained her composure throughout the interaction, telling Dweik that she was “sorry [Dweik] felt that way.”
See? Telling people not to hate Jews CAUSES murders. Somehow.
The logic behind this is as STUPID as it is hateful. Basically, you CAN’T condemn hate towards the Jewish people because it CAUSES hate towards Muslims? So we have to CHOOSE between one or the other? REALLY?
WHY CAN’T WE CONDEMN ALL HATE?!
Why and HOW is it WRONG to condemn hate against any one group?
The reasoning becomes all the more obvious when you realize these women are flaming anti-Semites themselves.
Oh. Yeah… about that.
So surely now people will understand that this ambush comes from a place of hate, right?
HA. Not quite.
Buzzfeed gave these two an ever larger platform. Because of COURSE they did.
According to Daily Wire:
Buzzfeed News gave the two anti-Israel activists who confronted Chelsea Clinton at a NYC memorial for victims of a horrific mass shooting at a mosque in New Zealand, the opportunity to write a “guest column” on their site, and the two women took it as an opportunity to double-down, smearing and attacking Clinton even further.
Dweik and Asaf, who eventually posted a video of the interaction that went viral, did not. They later went on social media to drag Clinton further, saying her mere presence at the memorial service was insulting. “[I] was on the verge of tears all day today and actually cried on my into and during prayer but the charade of a vigil where more non-[M]uslims than [M]uslims spoke and [C]helsea [C]linton was invited made me so viscerally angry and [I] will not apologize for that,” Dweik wrote.
Saturday, in a bizarre move, Buzzfeed extended a platform to the pair, allowing them access to their readership. Apparently unsatisfied with their previous barrage of insults, Dweik and Asaf used the forum to attack Clinton yet again, smearing her for simply standing against anti-Semitic language.
What is going ON here?
How are women who legitimately advocate for the DEMOLISHING OF ISRAEL suddenly held up by leftist media?
In the piece, Dweik and Asaf accuse Clinton, without any apparent evidence, of using her platform as the daughter of a former president to “fan those flames” of a “bigoted, anti-Muslim mob,” apparently referring to the wide swath of commentators who criticized Omar for repeatedly trotting out the anti-Semitic “dual loyalty” smear, accusing Jewish legislators of having divided allegiance to both the United States and Israel.
Dweik and Asaf, of course, defended Omar’s comments, claiming that Omar was merely “speaking the truth about the massive influence of the Israel lobby.”
Because of course.
Worse still, Dweik and Asaf went on to accuse Clinton of “stok(ing) hatred against” Muslims and fomenting the “anti-Muslim bigotry” that “created this killer” — the man who killed at least 50 people at two separate mosques in New Zealand. The pair accused Clinton, even, of hurting their fight against “white supremacy” “when she stood by the petty weaponizers (sic) of anti-semitism.”
The full essay is not only sickening, it’s chilling. Even Mediaite — not necessarily a conservative outlet — chastised Buzzfeed for its apparent lack of editorial oversight, allowing two women to use their platform to attack Chelsea Clinton without requiring them to provide any evidence of their claims.
This creeping Anti-Semitism rests squarely on the shoulders of the Democrats.
YOU own this.
