Rep. Paul Gosar tweeted this anime meme video out on Sunday night and now Democrats are absolutely furious, claiming he’s fantasizing about killing AOC.
It features Gosar and other Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert fighting the forces of evil, using his face as the hero and AOC’s face on one of the larger villains he takes down.
Any anime fans out there? pic.twitter.com/TxX4qiJhOi

Here’s a Rumble version of the video which will help you, because you’ll have to watch it multiple times to figure out what in the heck Democrats are talking about.
It’s anime so I don’t really get it. But it just appears to me that, as I mentioned above, Gosar is fighting the forces of evil, which are Democrats like AOC and Biden.
But Democrats are pretending like it is some murder-fantasy killing of AOC, including AOC herself. Twitter has even locked it down. Seriously.
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) tweeted a photoshopped, animated video that depicts him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and swinging two swords at President Biden, prompting condemnation and calls for his Twitter account to be suspended. https://t.co/jb3UycO40x

This is sick behavior from Rep. Paul Gosar. He tweeted out the video showing him killing Rep. Ocasio-Cortez from both his official account and personal account. In any workplace in America, if a coworker made an anime video killing another coworker, that person would be fired. pic.twitter.com/0ygBfE6bEL

So while I was en route to Glasgow, a creepy member I work with who fundraises for Neo-Nazi groups shared a fantasy video of him killing me
And he’ll face no consequences bc @GOPLeader cheers him on with excuses.
Fun Monday! Well, back to work bc institutions don’t protect woc https://t.co/XRnMAKsnNO

This man should not serve in Congress. Fantasizing about violently attacking your colleagues has no place in our political discourse and society. https://t.co/tr2b4poD2m

The media is piling on too, as hard as they can:
CNN and MSNBC's A.M. shows called out Gosar's behavior. AP, ABC, CBS, WaPo all wrote stories. So far, no coverage from Fox, Newsmax, or OANN. https://t.co/HeYEk2Ye5F

And let’s not forget Never Trumpers…
I gotta say this again: I got elected to Congress with Gosar. I served with Gosar. This is way beyond the pale. This is just pure incitement. He must be censured. He should not run again. He needs help. He’s fucking nuts. But Republicans won’t do a damn thing to him. https://t.co/ExwMsUQeo9

This will continue. Of course @gop and @GOPLeader can condemn this proactively (not some sidestepping comment when asked about it.). They won’t. The “arm-pit farting” of our politics is why we are failing the people. https://t.co/JYwc5gG96B

Honestly, I don’t know why Gosar would create an anime hero meme. I guess he thinks he has a lot of anime fan voters? But the outrage orgasm the media is having over this is absurd. It’s not like Gosar photographed himself holding AOC’s severed head. That would be a true murder fantasy. And when that happened to Trump, the media barely covered it.
This is obviously just a metaphor for defeating socialism (and probably vaccine mandates).
