What is so offensive about offering prayers for those in danger? If you don’t believe in prayer, don’t pray. But don’t mock those who do. Their prayers certainly aren’t hurting you or anyone else.
Apparently Justice Democrats spokesman and former AOC senior aide Waleed Shahid missed that memo, because after former Florida AG Pam Bondi advised those who could be Hurricane Dorian’s path to “just be safe”:

This was Shahid’s response:
At some point telling people to "stay safe" in the face of climate disasters is going to be akin to offering "thoughts and prayers" to survivors of mass shootings. https://t.co/rFLZqal1uS

Leave it to an AOC acolyte to be offended by someone urging potential hurricane victims to be safe.
Man what the hell is wrong with you

There's nothing wrong with thinking and praying in the wake of a mass shooting. There's never anything wrong with thinking and praying. You should try it sometime.
