Democrat House representative Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez is an avid user of social media.
In fact, with more than 4 million followers on Twitter and 750,000 “likes” on Facebook, she’s one of the most popular social media celebrities in the world.
Which is why Fox found this one thing strange about her Facebook account.
While Ocasio-Cortez used her Facebook page to raise the alarm for ending gun violence after the New Zealand mosque attack, she surprisingly remained silent when hundreds of Christians were tragically killed in a series of attacks on churches in Sri Lanka.
It seems that the darling of the liberal media and the “people’s champion” couldn’t bring herself to lament violence against innocent Christians.
In total, more than 359 people including 5 Americans were killed in this religiously motivated slaughter.
The obvious silence even brought the ire of left-leaning political pundit Piers Morgan, who took to Twitter to condemn Ocasio-Cortez.
He wrote: “Twitter-obsessed @AOC posted 14 times about the terror attack on Muslims in New Zealand, but has posted nothing about the terror attack on Christians by Muslim extremists in Sri Lanka. Very odd.[ ”
And AOC’s contemporary, Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, tweeted something similar.
He wrote: “Fact: @AOC tweeted about the horrific tragedy in New Zealand 14 times. She tweeted about the attack on Christians in Sri Lanka zero times. Why?”
But perhaps the most remarkable aspect in this strange oversight is that even Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama took the time to write something—although they referred to the victims as “Easter worshippers,” and not Christians.
It remains to be seen if Ocasio-Cortez’s silence was because she is abiding by her newly adopted policy of limited social media use.
A few days before the bombings, Ocasio-Cortez said she would be limiting her use of social media because of the “health risks” associated with its various platforms.
In a podcast, she claimed, “I personally gave up Facebook…which was
kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook, and Facebook was
my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time.”
However, she did say she still maintains some accounts, so one has to wonder why she said nothing about the tragedy on Twitter.
At the time this article was published, the former bartender had published 13 individual tweets about various issues.
None of them mentioned the targeted murders of
Christians on the most sacred day of the Christian faith, Easter Sunday.
