    AOC's worst tweet yet

    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?
    AOC draws ire ripping ‘your thoughts and prayers’ after Christchurch mosque shootings | Fox News

    That tweet was an abomination. Thoughts and prayers are exactly what these victims need. Those that attend religious service in a Mosque, Synagogue, or Church use thoughts and prayers.

    After that AOC uses this terrorist attack to insult the NRA:

    (“Thoughts and prayers” is reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect the conversation away from policy change during tragedies. Not directed to PM Ardern, who I greatly admire.)
    I am not sure what the NRA has to do with the shooting in New Zealand. I didn't realize the NRA had their own phrase either.

    In this case AOC's JD handlers have, fr once put good words into her mouth. 'Thoughts and Prayers' never keep people safe in any context. Though I suppose they may give comfort to the feeble minded.

    I would strongly disagree. Many times with shootings like these we become disillusioned with humanity. Thoughts and prayers help us from completely losing it. So yes, thoughts and prayers do matter for the victim's families and friends. It shows we as humans are together and share a kindred bond no matter how much evil exists in this world.

    OK, you have a point. Just as long as the 'thoughts and prayers' are not seen as a substitute for resolute action against terrorism. I suppose I am reacting against the dopey 'candles and flowers' orgies which follow every terrorist outrage in Europe.

    What the victims needed was to not be massacred. It doesn't seem like thoughts and prayers stop bullets, so once again she is 100% correct.

    Maybe you should jump in the other thread about this and join your other fellow nazis in insulting and berating Muslims while defending this white terrorist.

    Bad tweet by AOC, as reported by (looks down) Fox News!
    If I do not respond to you when you address one of my posts, it is likely I have nothing more to say or that your response was so stupid it didn't deserve a response. The latter is most likely.

    To the right wing: AOC owns you lock, stock and smoking barrel. In all my years, and I will soon be 70, I have never see the obsession some righties have with Cortez. Its funny and mesmerizing at the same time.

    You're right, AOC lives in heads of some 'right wingers' and Trump lives in the heads of all 'left wingers'. Funny how that works out, amiright ??

    Flush your hollow whataboutism.

    There is a huge difference between the President of the USA and a freshman congressperson from New York. When will that light bulb go on for you righties?

    All lies she tweets. Except they aren't lies, they are the truth and people don't like hearing the truth. Good for her I say.
