Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasted no time in politicizing the tragic mass shooting in New Zealand on Thursday by blasting the NRA over the deaths of 49 people.
The socialist superstar condemned the attack on Twitter, obsessively focussing on the NRA.
“At 1st I thought of saying, ‘Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.’ But I couldn’t say ‘imagine,’” Cortez wrote, citing the deadly shootings at a Charleston, S.C., church, a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church.
(“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.)

“What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?” She added.
Ocasio-Cortez noted that “thoughts and prayers” is a reference to the NRA phrase she says is “used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies.”
Some reports actually said the shooting was stopped by a Muslim with a gun, but let’s not let that get in the way of the left’s comically stupid narrative.
