Another day another AOC tweet that makes every Twitchy editor’s right-eye twitch just a little bit more. We used to think people like Ron Perlman and Alyssa Milano deliberately tweeted really stupid stuff because they wanted us to cover them more than anyone else …
But now we see Cortez (sorry, Ocasio-Cortez) outdoing even them.
She seems awfully excited about a country’s government disarming legal gun owners.
Sandy Hook happened 6 years ago and we can’t even get the Senate to hold a vote on universal background checks w/ #HR8.
Christchurch happened, and within days New Zealand acted to get weapons of war out of the consumer market.
This is what leadership looks like ⬇️ https://t.co/TcdR63anBt

And look, she took the time to exploit Sandy Hook as well.
Nothing says leadership like a government disarming the people.
Holy crap, for real?!
At this point, all we can do is shake our heads and wait for the next ridiculous tweet to post.
This is what *tyranny looks like. FTFY.

True story. Then again she is a Democratic Socialist and we all know their endgame is tyranny, so no wonder this resonated with her.
You misspelled tyranny

No, that’s what authoritarianism looks like.

Wrong. We just witnessed a knee-jerk-reaction that will make that country's defenses exponentially weaker.

Bad guys know the good guys have given up their weapons. But hey, like leadership and stuff. Yeah man, cool.
And you are welcome to go live there. May want to check out their immigration policies before you go. They're pretty strict. While we're on the topic of where you could go that isnt here, I hear Hell is nice this time of year.

Actually it’s just a different form of government which allows for infringing on the rights of citizens. Plus you know they have less people in their country than the entire state of NY

Oh yeah, America is different from New Zealand.
