In the aftermath of the recent horrific massacre at a mosque in New Zealand, a group of far-left activists confronted Chelsea Clinton, as the former First Daughter appeared at a vigil for the victims at New York University.
Despite being a prominent liberal figure, Clinton was set upon by angered, emotional students who claimed her recent condemnation of Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks had “stoked Islamophobia.”
The audacity of such claims elicited quick responses from several conservatives, including Donald Trump Junior, who staunchly defended Chelsea without hesitation.

The president’s son called the blame directed towards Clinton “sickening,” adding, “Chelsea should praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.”
“We should all be condemning anti-Semitism [and] all forms of hate,” Donald Jr. added.
It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism. We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.

Several conservative pundits agreed, and made similar statements in support of Chelsea, with many encouraging Clinton not to pay heed to the comments.
Dear @ChelseaClinton, You are now in the crosshairs of the dangerous & anti-Semitic #honorbrigade. They shame to silence criticism. Their agenda: destroying Israel. They came after @MeghanMcCain. In @TheMuslimReform, we oppose their hate. Read more here: https://t.co/wJ4kyF8qwe pic.twitter.com/9n9rl4DbhX

when the left has led the right to staunchly defend Chelsea Clinton, then the left must be irretrievably lost.

Hi, @ChelseaClinton. I, for one, applaud your calmness with these obnoxious brats.
You did not ‘stoke islamophobia.’ You know you’re not islamophobic. We know you’re not islamophobic. Don’t listen to these petulant children. https://t.co/mtULVjXsnk
