The left grows more insane with hatred and rage every day. After these people berated Chelsea Clinton for something she had nothing whatsoever to do with, they should have been greeted with contempt and ridicule everywhere. Instead, Buzzfeed rewards them. And Buzzfeed is just a symptom of a much larger problem. This hate and madness is pandemic, and the left is entirely responsible for it. Their endgame is to foreclose on the slightest criticism of Islam or any Muslim individual or group, on the pretext that such criticism might incite violence. But of course they freely criticizing and even call for violence against those they hate, without the slightest self-reflection about their hypocrisy.
“Buzzfeed Gives Anti-Israel Activists Who Harassed Chelsea Clinton A Guest Column,” by Emily Zanotti, Daily Wire, March 17, 2019 (thanks to Mark):
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.
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.”
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.
In the piece (click at your own risk), 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….
