Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday by questioning the “thoughts and prayers” often expressed in sympathy with victims.
“At 1st I thought of saying, ‘Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.’,” she tweeted.
“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 concluded.
