“It is an idolatry of violence” to support the Second Amendment, while believing in the sanctity of the life of preborn children, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:
“There is no such thing as being ‘pro-life’ while supporting laws that let children be shot in their schools, elders in grocery stores, worshippers in their houses of faith, survivors by abusers, or anyone in a crowded place. It is an idolatry of violence. And it must end.”
Rose replied by denouncing the congresswoman’s “despicable” hypocrisy:
“It’s totally despicable to use the mass slaughter of innocent school children to justify the mass slaughter of millions of innocent children in the womb. Until you open your eyes to the blood shed you support, you cannot lead.”
“Using a mass shooting of innocent school children to advance the slaughter of innocent preborn children is grotesque,” said in a follow-up tweet on Wednesday.
