Last night, not long after the mosque attacks in New Zealand, Ocasio-Cortez attacked the ‘thoughts and prayers’ of people as well as the NRA.
At 1st I thought of saying, “Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.”— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 15, 2019
But I couldn’t say “imagine.”
Because of Charleston.
What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?pic.twitter.com/2mSw0azDN8
What’s incredibly ironic about this is that just a few days ago Ocasio-Cortez bore ashes on her forehead for Ash Wednesday, as pointed out by Caleb Hull:
Later on she tweeted that her attack on ‘thoughts and prayers’ was really about the NRA using the phrase to deflect away from gun control:
(“Thoughts and prayers” is reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies. Not directed to PM Ardern, who I greatly admire.)— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 15, 2019
This wasn’t even in America, yet she attacks the NRA.
She also attacks ‘thoughts and prayers’ because she truly believes only government is the answer for everything.
Derek Hunter called her a garbage person over her tweet:
You're attacking Americans for something that happened on the other side of the planet and making sure the people of New Zealand don't think you're being political toward their leader. You're a garbage person for all of it. https://t.co/SAjHNAvTsS

Democrats have become so radicalized in the last few years that they politicize everything before they even know the facts. They want to get rid of guns and they’ll use any occasion to argue that point, even when it has nothing to do with America.
