Ocasio-Cortez Mocks People of Faith

Ocasio-Cortez once again corrected a tweet after shooting from the hip, insulting victims of gun violence and believers at the same time.. The Daily Caller reports:

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was blasted Friday for a tweet mocking the power of prayer after at least 49 people were reportedly killed in mass shootings at mosques in New Zealand.

The two mosques were attacked around the time of midday Friday prayer, and at least some of the incident was captured on video and live-streamed by the shooter, according to The New York Times.

“At first I thought of saying, ‘Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t same anymore.’ But I couldn’t say ‘imagine,’” Ocasio-Cortez said in her first reaction to the massacre. “What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?”

Ocasio-Cortez then attempted to clarify her tweet, writing in the thread, “‘Thoughts and prayers’ is reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies.”

By attempting to vilify her political opposition, Ocasio-Cortez has mocked everyday Muslims, Christians, Jews and other peoples of faith.
