Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Attacks the NRA Over the New Zealand Mosque Shootings

In response to the horrific attacks on two New Zealand mosques by a radical anti-immigrant, eco-fascist nut job, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has decided the best course of action is to somehow connect the terror attack to…the National Rifle Association on the other side of the globe.

The famously under-informed freshman Congressperson apparently thinks the term “thoughts and prayers” was coined by the NRA’s PR operation.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter

Dana Loesch struck back.

The NRA doesn’t appear to have issued a statement yet on the New Zealand shooting, but details like that aren’t really important when the goal is scoring political points.

In the manifesto he published justifying his mass murder, the New Zealand shooter stated that he specifically chose firearms to prompt a greater push for gun control in the US and a repeal of the Second Amendment. It appears that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez would like to oblige him and isn’t letting this crisis go to waste.

      I’m sorry but I’m sick of having to hear about how everything about the gun/shooting/hunting activity is the NRA’s. They don’t make people do these things
      they’re too busy counting their money and managing their investments.

        Why are you anti-NRA posters such bold faced liars? NRA spending is running slightly more than its income according to its 990 the last couple of years since its corporate affinity and corporate donations have been targeted by gun control groups

        By the way, NRA executive compensation is about 1% of expenses whereas GOA is about 12%.

        I saw a report that a mosque worker ( a humble man who helped with parking cars and such) grabbed the shooter from behind and made him drop the gun. When the shooter ran away, the mosque worker chased him with the gun, but was unable to get it to fire. The shooter jumped into a car with two other people and drove away. There were eight deaths at that smaller mosque. Possibly many more were saved by this brave man’s actions.

        Cory, his manifesto has extreme right and extreme left. But like all these mass killers what you are going to find is he is simply insane. Putting a political label on him is just part of the disinformation, because we know if the manifesto were outright left, the media would be marking this down and pitching it as insanity only. That is a double standard. Fort Hood shooter hated Christians, yet that became workplace violence. Pulse nightclub was an Islamist, but that became just “crazy” with no Islamist motive in the mainstream media.The unibomber’s manifesto was anarcho/environmentalist left, pretty much like Antifa. That that was spun as just crazy.

        Anders Breivik, the perpetrator of the larges shooting of students anywhere after Beslin (Islamist killing of christian school children) was found insane by all three original court appointed pychiatrists who examined him. That was politically incorrect. So the Norway government forced the court to have him “re-examined” and found sane and ‘polically motivated” even though by all Norway criminal insanity standards, he was simply insane.

        This killer in New Zealand’s manifesto is likely not so much about what he believes, but constructed to get the most press notice. It is “red meat” for the media to give him what he really wants, which is fame. These mass killers are insignificant people who deeply feel they are ignored by society. They know the media will make them famous. They know since Breivik that throwing out a political angle gets the media drooling and more likely to

          AOC is a product of a wasted education, and it shows greatly! The NRA is a GRASS ROOTS representative organization of Americans to defend the First and Second Amendments, and the Constitution overall. AOC would do well to refocus on Farrakhan, Rev. Wright, Al Sharpton, C.A.I.R who supports the Muslim Brotherhood, and terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas; Linda Sarsour, Omar and Tlaib who are haters, misogynists, racists and Anti Semites. AOC may want to focus on the 14 million slaves in India, and the genocidal tribal wars in Africa – like the TUTSIS and HUTU in the 1990’s.
          Currently slavery is common in the African nations – Sudan Chad, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Northern Uganda, Congo and Niger. Sexual slavery including child sex trade is practiced in Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, and Ethiopia; forced labor slave trade is very healthy in Cape Verde, Sao Tome, in the Congo by the Bantu; In Mauritania hold 600,000 black slaves, many of which are children. Genocide – currently being practiced in the Sudan: Dinka’s committing genocide against the Nuer people; ISIS genocide against the Yazidis, Iraqi Shiites; and Assyrian Christians; and Muslim groups in Darfur committing genocide against the Fur people; and 120 Nigerians murdered and 140 homes destroyed by Muslims in the 3 weeks preceding the shooting in New Zealand. Bigotry, racism, sex slave trades, slavery is still alive and well in Africa, the Middle East, Pakistan, China, India and Uzbekistan and practiced by Muslims and Africans. AOC would do well to refocus there!

      Well, this is, as a percentage of the population, about the same scale for New Zealand as 9/11 was for America.
      360,000,000 people in the USA – 9/11 killed almost 3,000.
      5,000,000 people in NZ – 3/15 killed 49.

      So it’s right and proper for us to comment and condemn this attack.

        Check out the cover page of the shooter’s “manifesto.”

        He is a proponent of “workers’ rights,” the “environment,” and “responsible markets.” He is also “anti-imperialism.”

        This guy was a racist xenophobe, but he was also a LEFTIST. Not that this small detail will receive media coverage either. I’ve already heard him described as a “right wing extremist” on at least one mainstream news channel.

        1. avatar Strength & Honor says:

          “I’ve already heard him described as a “right wing extremist” on at least one mainstream news channel.”

          Technically, he IS a ‘right wing’ extremist, because anyone to the RIGHT (e.g. towards a fantasy political “center”) from the perspective of Social Democrats (aka Communists) or openly Communist (more like Marxist) groups is, from THEIR vantage, ‘right wing’, e.g. to the right of their ideology.

          Keep in mind, ‘right wing’ when discussing extremism does not correspond with US political parties as we identify ‘left vs right’ or Communists vs Constitutionalists… er I mean Democrats vs Republicans. A fantastic article to review on this topic https://www.csis.org/analysis/rise-far-right-extremism-united-states specifically the segment:

          “To be clear, the terms “right-wing extremists” and “left-wing extremists” do not correspond to political parties in the United States, such as Republicans or Democrats. Opinion polls in the United States show that most Republicans and Democrats loathe terrorism. 3

          Instead, right-wing terrorism commonly refers to the use or threat of violence by sub-national or non-state entities whose goals may include racial, ethnic, or religious supremacy; opposition to government authority; and the end of practices like abortion.4 As Bruce Hoffman writes, right-wing terrorists generally criticize the democratic state for “its liberal social welfare policies and tolerance of diverse opinion—alongside its permitting of dark-skinned immigrants in the national labor force and of Jews and other minorities in positions of power or influence.” 5 Left-wing terrorism, on the other hand, refers to the use or threat of violence by sub-national or non-state entities that oppose capitalism, imperialism, and colonialism; focus on environmental or animal rights issues; espouse pro-communist or pro-socialist beliefs; or support a decentralized sociopolitical system like anarchism.6”

          The distinction is clear, however in the US, all of those ideas tend to fall under a leftward leaning ideology.
          We need not knee-jerk respond to the right wing label because ‘right wing’ is correctly a euphemism for national socialism (NSDAP, NAZI) or groups associated with their hybrid socialistic, state controlled ‘free market’ ideology… often indistinguishable from their racist ideology.

          In context, this means that the media (Democrats), organizations such as the SPLC and their ilk, and officials representing the Democrat Party in the US, regularly misrepresent the term ‘right wing’ as a slander against US Conservatives and Republicans party members, or anyone who stands in the way of their view, goals, or agenda. This is simply information warfare designed to shut you up by inappropriately attempting to group you in with people your parents and grandparents shed blood to beat in the 40s. People you consider evil. They are literally describing all Republicans or Conservatives as Nazis, when the contrast couldn’t be more stark. It is just that all of these groups (national socialists, centerists, republicans, conservatives, constitutionalists, etc.) are, ideologically, to THEIR right whereas from the perspective of anyone to the right of center on the US political spectrum, one might easily categorize ‘right wing extremism’ as ‘left wing extremism’.

          For the sake of clarity, please note that for whatever reason, they continue describing left vs right wing in the same context as left vs right in the Weimar Republic, which does not at all align with US politics. It’s nothing short of libel and slander the way they used to try to segregate blacks, round up Japanese citizens, and refuse Jewish refugees from Europe. This time, Republicans are their target.

          Further info: https://www.conservapedia.com/National_Socialism:
          “It was common in those days, as it is in ours, to identify the Communists as leftist and the Nazis as rightists, as if they stood on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. But Ludwig von Mises knew differently. They both sported the same ideological pedigree of socialism. “The German and Russian systems of socialism have in common the fact that the big government has full control of the means of production. It decides what shall be produced and how. It allots to each individual a share of consumer’s goods for his consumption.”

          If friggen Ludwig von Mises calls them out on their similarities, you know something is fishy.

          I’m struggling to find it, but there is a reference out there by a bigwig Nazi member, either mr mustache himself in his stupid screed about his personal jihad (jihad sorta translates to struggle…) or another propaganda personality who plainly states that National Socialism is for all intents and purposes identical to Communism, save for a few select nuances such as all men are not equal, the facade of a free market, and several other distinctions. If anyone can identify that quote, please reply with it. It is seminal to understanding this issue. Political scientists will pitch a fit saying that these ideologies are NOT identical because of a few opposing descriptions, but if if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck… its probably a goose stepper of some sort.

          In conclusion, leftists (whose ambitions are clearly described above by CSIS) are just pissed their side didn’t sweep the entire European continent and crush us by beating podiums with their shoes.

          Post Script: I’m fairly certain I, and my family, will languish in a Gulag if the left ever really takes control and someone finds this comment.

          “Technically, he IS a ‘right wing’ extremist”
          Umm NO. In his own words he is a leftist.

          “As Bruce Hoffman writes, right-wing terrorists generally criticize the democratic state for “its liberal social welfare policies and tolerance of diverse opinion—alongside its permitting of dark-skinned immigrants in the national labor force and of Jews and other minorities in positions of power or influence.” ”

          Don’t believe everything you read.

          And no the Nazi” were not “right wing” That is BS spread by the left not wanting to be associated with them. They wish to paint the right as being the Nazi.

          History shows that the left are the ones that are terrorists, despots, dictators and are the first to resort to violence to get their way.

          Von Mises’ disciple, the Nobel prize-winning economist and social philosopher F.A. Hayek, wrote “The Road to Serfdom,” (1944) which has as its chapter XII title, “THE SOCIALIST ROOTS OF NAZIISM.”

          “What, then, caused these views held by a reactionary minority [Naziism] finally to gain the support of the great majority of Germans and practically the whole of her youth?… [T]he support which brought these ideas to power came precisely from the socialist camp.”

          Chapter XIII is entitled “THE TOTALITARIANS IN OUR MIDST.” Hayek was warning classical liberal societies, particularly England, to beware the totalitarian impulses that he saw emerging even then. The welfare states of Europe and the U.S.A. followed.

          Having lived in NZ I can tell you that getting a gun license is not as hard as you might think. It’s a PITA to be sure, but it’s not like Cali in terms of carry.

          A Firearms license in NZ works like a lot of driver’s licenses do in the US. It has an endorsement. You can have hunting rifles with the Type A license which is the general license for “sporting configuration” arms. Paying $200NZD and applying through the police can get you a B,C,D or E endorsement (each one costs $200 and you can have them all if you want).

          B covers pistols and E covers what we’d call MSRs (They call them MSSA’s Military Style Semi Automatics). Sporting competition is considered a “lawful, proper, and sufficient purpose” for an endorsement to be issued and B and E endorsements can be given to visitors from oversees.

          Those with a B endorsement can carry a pistol, subject to some restrictions that vary by location. There is no “permit to carry” but rather you carry and potential use must have a “lawful, proper, and sufficient purpose” which is determined on a case by case basis if you get caught with the gun or you use it outside a gun range.

          I suspect that, based on my interactions with NZ Police, the cops will have no trouble determining that this guy had a “lawful, proper, and sufficient purpose” in shooting back provided he had a B endorsement and an A license, which there’s no reason to think he didn’t since any of us could get one if we had a valid visa.

      *it’s a bit early yet; it’s possible the killer took out an armed guard(s) in the first moments

      Every day I thank the powers that be for AOC. She is going to almost single handed land either Trump or another gop candidate in the white house come election time.

      If I knew there was an actual plot afoot to kill her I’d put my fat ass between her and the killer(s).

      At the risk of calling down Godwin’s on my head I will state that she is this generations hitler. He almost single handed lost the war. Without him there could maybe have been another outcome for Germany. Or at least it would have cost the allies more years, blood and tears if he had dies early in the war.

      AOC is fracturing and destroying the democrat party and their future. Man, these are exciting times.

    When your job depends on having a certain political mindset and the godless people around you share it as well, AOC’s ignorant commentary isn’t a surprise. Who’s truly surprised this leftwing dingbat wouldn’t get around to tying the NRA, terrorism, and firearms together?
    I’m not.
    It’s a standard Progtard response. Anyone else with common sense would be a bit more circumspect casting blame.

    One of the houses of worship was safe; they had a gun & fought back, saving dozens of lives.

    The other house merely ‘felt’ safe, and its members paid dearly. There’s only one lesson to be learned today.

  25. avatar ANG Pilot says:

    I guess that dim bulb AOC missed the part of Brendon Tarrant’s manifesto where he said he hoped these murders would provoke a civil war in the United States by promoting a further crackdown on gun owners there.

    The NRA and its members had nothing to do with these murders or any of the murders AOC referenced. She’s a bigot who has no problem scapegoating hundreds of millions of innocent people because she hates them.

    Leftists like AOC don’t trust normal people. She and her ilk feel we’ll only live our lives properly when we’re “guided” or forced into it by our betters – people like her. Private gun ownership puts incredible power – for both good and bad – into the hands of the masses, and that’s a huge problem for her. It gives the masses a credible means of resisting her agenda.

  28. avatar Pacer says:

    I really try to stay away from political discussions, but I cant help myself on this. It’s scary how uninformed AOC is on…just about everything. What’s equally scary is the amount of followers she has who will believe anything she says. Any rational debate with her absolutely impossible. I’m constantly amazed by this.

    For example, if you don’t agree to her New Green Deal then you are automatically against the environment. No, it’s just a poorly thought out, ridiculous idea. And that’s what passes for politics today. Half baked ideas.

    She’s definitely not popular for her intellect. If she was an OFWG you’d never hear of her. Her qualifications: Latina, 29 years old, reasonably attractive. That’s it. Her economics degree obviously hasn’t helped her other than put her on the finance committee.

    1. avatar WI Patriot says:

      “It’s scary how uninformed AOC is on…just about everything.”

      That’s just a typical liberal, they know not of what they speak, so the regurgitate what they’ve been told, or what they’ve been instructed…In other words, they’re just parrots, some are junior parrots(aoc, omar, etc), and some are senior parrots(pelosi, etc), but all parrots nonetheless…

    Several of the statements he made do have some credibility involving that Democracy can result in mob rule not by a rule of law; you need law with equity and law with grace. That you can not obtain equality with the notion that equality means equal outcome and results; but equality of worth; equal protection under the law; and equal opportunity.

    Also, more people during the last century were killed by their own governments by disarming their intended victims in a ghetto and a concentration camp than by all of the street thugs that have existed.

    Finally, every society of man on this planet must governed by the power within or the power without; by the word of God or the power of the state; by the Bible or the bayonet. All of the things that we suffer from crime; envy; hatred; slavery; are the result of ignoring the precepts and principles of the Bible. !!

    I wish I could this dummy but she’s far too stupid to take that chance. Somebody should tell her advocating repeal of the 2ND is in keeping with the spirit of the oath of office she took. If I was rich I’d hire a couple of good attornies and go after those in the national legislature who are anti-2ND and attempt to get them tossed from office for not adhering to the oath to support the Constitution.

  38. avatar strych9 says:

    AOC might, might have finally stepped in it this time.

    Her comment here serves no real purpose and, given where this happened and what the guy who did it had to say about why he was doing it, scores no political points. In this case it’s just a divisive and derisive remark by a stupid woman who should shortly be seen as such by nearly everyone worldwide.

    Hopefully she goes farther with her comments and advocates some gun control so that someone with clout/name recognition asks her “Why are you taking the side of a deranged lunatic who shot up a mosque? He said you’d do this and he said it would lead to more division and maybe even conflict. Why do you support a second civil war Ms. Cortez?”.

    I’d love to see her explain how “morally correct” she is when she’s wrong on that one.

    1. avatar Pg2 says:

      She’ll never “step in it”. You dont seem to understand what she really represents.

    1. avatar Martin Buck says:

      Sadly, just like the shooter intended, our Prime Minister (who resembles AOC in many ways, but has a MUCH better speech writer) bit hard on the anti gun bandwagon, saying that the days of semi automatics are over in NZ. Again, like all hoplophobes, she doesn’t have a clue what she’s talking about. The shooter was able to obtain a NZ Firearms License, so he must have been able to convince an experienced Police Firearms Officer that he was reliably sane. He had shotguns as well as some form of AR15 – do they ban shotguns as well? The licensing regime will probably be hardened up. Interesting that she first addressed only her thoughts to the victims – atheism is the chosen religion of the far left – but later added prayers as a political expedient. Guns are going to become very unpopular in these parts – just in time for hunting season! That shooter was an Australian, who are notoriously racist in NZ eyes. In NZ we trust Muslims more than we do Australians. This is an embarrassment for our intelligence and security personnel, who were beating the wrong bushes for terrorists. Racist skinheads have taken over organized crime in Christchurch, and the Police who tolerated their depradations will have to be replaced. There is probably a much wider conspiracy yet to be found.

    I thought I read the dirtbag was Australian. So, does NZ have an immigration problem?

    1. avatar Martin Buck says:

      We have had a big immigration problem for many years. The problem was the right wing National party selling citizenship for contributions to party campaign funds, the same problem you have in America. Except those rich new citizens are Asians, Americans, wealthy people from all over the world. And they have been busy hoovering up the residential property market, so that now we have increased house prices and homelessness. And the (mainly Muslim) refugees allowed in via UN mandates, who are given social housing, are increasing homelessness from the other end. Poor Kiwis are living in their cars. Our new Left wing government are like deer frozen in the headlights, seemingly unable to take any useful action to correct the problem. There has always been free movement between NZ and Australia (except for felons), but this guy left no trace of his intentions other than on social media, which our intelligence and security people are apparently unable to access. There was a TV series made in Australia called Romper Stomper, which shows the growing tensions between Muslims and skinheads, and the violence this generates. There have been a few race riots in Oz, but nothing at all in NZ. This guy was apparently trying to bring Aussie style racism to NZ. It did not work. We do not blame blame Muslims for the problems caused by greedy incompetent politicians. We deeply sympathize with the Mosque attendees who had such a bad day yesterday. One idiot will not change our minds.

    Ms. Cortez
    Are you suggesting that this mans behavior be rewarded by giving him what he requests? If you are I think that would be sending a very interesting message to others who may be considering similar actions! I know what happens to children when they are raised to believe that when big brother gets a new baseball and little brother doesn’t want him to have it so he throws it through a window. Very often both end up in prison if they live long enough. Sadly many don’t get the opportunity to see the light so to speak. I think you have a really bad idea. Good day. God bless America.

    You are looking at this all wrong. We need to support AOC and let her keep talking, With every word she is securing a Trump win in 2020. We need to let the dem’s make her their voice, she exemplifies just how unhinged the dem party has become. Trump 2020, make liberals cry again!
