If there’s one thing we know about Rep. Alexandria Ocaiso-Cortez (D) it’s that she is a seasoned panderer. I can’t say that she’s an expert at it at this time due to the fact that her pandering often times ends up going horribly for her.
The latest attempt was once again aimed at getting Christians to side with her on socialism.
An article written by Obery M. Hendricks Jr. at Sojourner attempted to sell us on the Biblical values of AOC’s socialism. The congresswoman couldn’t wait to show off just how into the faith she was by tweeting out about it with a Bible verse she cherry picked.
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me,” tweeted AOC.

Christians immediately showed up to laugh her off the stage.
You don't get to use Religion to push a political agenda if you're going to condemn Christian Values within the Constitution. pic.twitter.com/RKFKUYas6f

Let’s see if you retweet this:
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

Leftist are always all about the separation of church and state unless they see the opportunity to use religion to club their opponents.

To be clear, as I explain in detail, Jesus was not a socialist. Every now and again, socialists like AOC will attempt to sell us a narrative that Christ supports government seizure of the means of production. It’s a lazy narrative that’s backed by very little evidence, and as AOC demonstrates, it usually boils down to cherry picking various verses out of the Bible in order to back their point. As usual, a little education goes a long way to clearing the narrative that socialism attempts to dirty.
Ocasio-Cortez has attempted to hijack Biblical narratives and lessons multiple times in the past, and it’s never worked out for her. For one, she attempted to get Christians on board with her stance on illegal immigration by telling us that Jesus was a refugee. As I explained quite clearly, he wasn’t at all. A surface level look at the story of Jesus may lead one to believe he seemed like one, but even just scratching the surface shows us that he doesn’t qualify for the role.
The truth is that AOC doesn’t really care about Christians and Christianity. Sure she walks around with ashes on her forehead during Ash Wednesday…

But then she’ll go on to tell us that prayers don’t work. Ya know, prayers. The primary means of communication with almighty God and a cornerstone of the Christian faith. For someone so filled with faith, you’d think she’d have a much higher regard for it.
Ocasio-Cortez sees Christianity as useful, but she doesn’t seem to be looking for Christ. She’ll embrace it with the intention to pander to Christians who she thinks are stupid enough to be won over by quoting cherry picked Bible verses, then ditch it the moment its usefulness has run its course.
