Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez never misses an opportunity to make a fool out of herself.
But this time she crossed a line.
And all hell broke loose when Ocasio-Cortez sent this blood-boiling tweet.
Americans were horrified to learn of the unspeakable tragedy in New Zealand where a madman murdered 49 innocents at a Mosque in New Zealand.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t see it as a tragedy.
Instead, she saw it as an opportunity to score political points.
She mocked the idea of giving “thoughts and prayers” as a distraction promoted by gun rights supporters in America in order to avoid debating the role firearms supposedly play in mass shootings.
(“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.)

Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats want one thing – the complete and total confiscation of every firearm in America.
But they can only go on the offensive in the wake of mass shootings.
It’s why the left sits around waiting for the next tragedy, so they can deploy emotional blackmail in the immediate aftermath to force Republicans to accept gun control.
In this case, Ocasio-Cortez’s comments were even more ridiculous.
New Zealand has some of the strictest gun control laws on the planet.
This tragedy sadly proved that gun control does not work.
The only people disarmed by gun control are law-abiding citizens that need firearms to protect themselves.
Madmen with murder on their minds don’t care about gun control laws and obtain the firearms they need to carry out their acts of terror by any means necessary.
