'What good are your thoughts and prayers when they don't even keep the pews safe?' AOC is widely condemned for New Zealand mosque massacre post - and then insists she was referring to the NRA
New York congresswoman shared clip of Jacinda Ardern speaking about tragedy
Referencing U.S. shootings in places of worship, asked what good are prayers
Later clarified her comments were criticizing NRA, rather than prime minister
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been criticized after she appeared to slam New Zealand's PM Jacinda Ardern for offering 'thoughts & prayers' to the victims of today's massacre.
Sharing a clip of Ardern speaking about the deadly terror attack, she asked: 'What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don't even keep the pews safe?'
The New York congresswoman also said she did not need to 'imagine being told your house of faith isn't safe anymore' because it had happened so many times before.
She then referenced the 2015 Charleston church shooting, in which nine people were killed, the 2018 Pittsburgh synagogue attack, where eleven died, and the 2017 Sutherland Springs church shooting where 26 lost their lives.
Although she later clarified that she was criticizing the National Rifle Association rather than Ardern, her comments were widely condemned.

A godless liberal says prayers are no good.
Go read the Bible, air head. God doesnt promise us a safe and worry free life on this earth.
She’s so sweet.
I guess it’s asking too much for her to read accounts and find out that 7 were killed at a mosque where someone was able to fire back and 41 were killed a a mosque where no one was able to fire back.
At 1st I,a bartender,thought...
Do mosques have pews?
Standard leftist meme.
She doesn’t understand that she’s arguing for concealed carry etc... If she were serious.
But they aren’t serious.
They have rugs.
What - no common sense rocket launcher control?
someone needs to remind that moron new Zealand has no 2nd amendment the only ones who can legally own guns are the cops didn’t stop the massacre from happening zero security
“Do mosques have pews?”
Does New Zealand have the NRA?
Coming from someone whos fully on board with making the womb a dangerous place. It isnt the failure of thoughts and prayers, its the existence of people like AOC.
Shes adorable. Like a 5 year old child.
Comrade Cortez brings new meaning to the word MORON.
What good is A0C?
Well, she’s a stopped clock on this one, except for the “pew” part. Thoughts and prayers to Allah are not going to help you.
I think the Taco Joint Barmaid is confusing New Zealand with New Orleans.
Bless her heart!
