Hollywood Liberals MOCK ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ and ATTACK the GOP After Florida Shooting – Demand Gun Control Instead

celebrity tweets

Hollywood liberals lined up to politicize the Florida school shooting, blaming Republicans and the NRA for the tragedy. Worst of all, they mocked those who offered up “thoughts and prayers” to the victims and their families.

Kim Kardashian was one of the celebrities who did their share of virtue signaling and pompous preaching to the rest of us. Besides criticizing those offering thoughts and prayers, she also mocked the NRA. She retweeted a screenshot of an NRA tweet that encouraged people to buy guns for Valentine’s Day. The NRA deleted it after the school shooting that killed 17.

“We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school,” she tweeted. “Prayers won’t do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence.”

Elizabeth Banks was equally blunt.

Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo tweeted: ‘Prayers without accordant action are silent lies told to oneself, heard by no God, amounting to nothing. Action is the language of truth, the prayers of the Saints.’

Besides the NRA, the GOP was a favorite target: Florida Senator Marco Rubio took the brunt of criticism from the left, as his A+ rating from the NRA made him a target.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes slammed President Trump immediately after the shooting, accusing him of using the tragedy to cancel a press briefing and avoid answering questions from reporters. He later deleted it, but people were able to screenshot it.

Hayes later hosted Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on his MSNBC show, where the politician slammed Republicans for not doing more on gun control. The Daily Caller reports.

“The reason that I get angry when people send out thoughts and prayers and nothing else, they’re meaningless if you’re not willing to put action behind your faith,” Murphy said.

“So yeah, a lot of these Senators are really nice to the victims of gun violence when they come into their office. And then when they leave, they go back to the business of doing absolutely nothing. And that is infuriating to Melba, a good friend of mine.”

“That is infuriating to me. My hope is it is infuriating to the voters of Florida who decide to send somebody to Washington who recognize that Orlando, parkland are not inevitable. There’s a consequence of inaction. It’s a matter of changing representation to get a different outcome.”

A handful of celebrities still offered prayers with the rest of America, Britney Spears among them.
