As good people on social media watched unspeakable events unfurl in San Bernardino, California, on their television sets, all one could do in a situation where you can really do nothing is pray and offer those prayers to the world. Naturally, elite members of our media will use any opportunity to mock the Faithful. Even 14 still-warm dead bodies won’t stop them from attacking those who offer a heartfelt “thoughts and prayers” sentiment.
The Huffington Post rushed to publish its mockery with a headline and subhead that read:
Another Mass Shooting, Another Deluge Of Tweeted Prayers
Seems to have been an ineffective strategy so far
Republicans’ Jeb Bush, Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee were singled out for mockery, as were some local Democrats.
On Twitter, staffers from Vox, Think Progress, and the Daily Kos joined the pile on.
