Remember on Saturday I covered when some Progressive Palestinian activists from NYU decided to yell at Chelsea Clinton, blaming her for the New Zealand mosque shooting because she called out Ilahn Omar’s antisemitism.
The narrative is being created to protect Ilhan Omar and the rest of her Progressive Jew hating ilk from being challenged, less calling out Muslim antisemitism leads to another mosque shooting.
First up, Linda Sarsour is pushing this.
Yeah, the internet piled on Omar because she’s just an innocent black, African, Muslim, refugee woman. Nothing but her identify. It’s not like she has a history of saying horrific things and standing by horrific people. Nope, just her identity.
Sarsour has been a staunch defender of Omar, Tlaib, and AOC.
But worse than than, BuzzFeed decided to give the girl who yelled at Chelsea Clinton a guest columnist spot.
We did a double take when we first noticed Chelsea Clinton was at the vigil. Just weeks before this tragedy, we bore witness to a bigoted, anti-Muslim mob coming after Rep. Ilhan Omar for speaking the truth about the massive influence of the Israel lobby in this country. As people in unwavering solidarity with Palestinians in their struggle for freedom and human rights, we were profoundly disappointed when Chelsea Clinton used her platform to fan those flames. We believe that Ilhan Omar did nothing wrong except challenge the status quo, but the way many people chose to criticize Omar made her vulnerable to anti-Muslim hatred and death threats.
We were shocked when Clinton arrived at the vigil, given that she had not yet apologized to Rep. Omar for the public vilification against her. We thought it was inappropriate for her to show up to a vigil for a community she had so recently stoked hatred against. We were not alone in feeling uncomfortable — many students were dismayed to see her there.
See, it’s not that Omar said things that were antisemitic, just questioning Israeli lobbying money in Congress.
Chelsea Clinton’s slap on the wrist criticism of Omar’s antisemitism, that was vile Islamophobic hatred.
I wonder what kind of person could take that position with straight face.
One who advocates for Israeli genocide. That kind.
This is the progressive narrative now:
Them: “The Jews are evil, wipe out Israel.”
Us: “That’s a horribly antisemitic thing to say.”
Them: “Stop being Islamophobic. Your worse are causing anti-Muslim hate crimes.”
This coming from the same people who claim that Jews use accusations of antisemitism to shut down debate about Israel.
Apparently debate over topics like an anti-Israeli final solution.
We are watching this narrative form right before our eyes, and we cannot allow it to happen.
