‘Pompous twit’ AOC bashes prayer, blames NRA in wake of New Zealand shooting

As Twitchy noted, newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said and tweeted a number of stupid things since winning her 2018 election.  But her reaction to the horrific mass shooting at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand went over the top.

She started by bashing prayer, followed up with a call for her idea of “unity,” then seemed to blame the NRA for the shooting, obviously ignorant of New Zealand’s gun laws.

“At 1st I thought of saying, ‘Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.’ But I couldn’t say ‘imagine.’ Because of Charleston. Pittsburgh. Sutherland Springs. What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?” she tweeted.

After tweeting this, she followed up with: “This is a time of great vulnerability for our communities. We must come together, fight for each other, & stand up for neighbors. Isolation, dehumanizing stereotypes, hysterical conspiracy theories, & hatred ultimately lead to the anarchy of violence. We cannot stand for it.”

Wait a minute…  Isn’t she doing exactly what she claims we “cannot stand” for?

She then clarified:

In other words, Ocasio-Cortez just crapped all over Christians and NRA members but not PM Arden.

Dana Loesch was one of many not impressed with Ocasio-Cortez:

Michelle Malkin also took the self-described Green New Deal “boss” to task:

Others weighed in:

We agree…


You mean, besides being a “pompous little twit” who apparently is a legend in her own mind?

We agree wholeheartedly.

And if AOC had spent about five seconds on Google, she would have realized that New Zealand has some pretty strict gun laws…  Unfortunately, “if” can be a pretty big word…
