Republicans continued to incite violence against Democrats this week when Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) posted an animated video of himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and President Joe Biden.
Gosar is one of several House Republicans who have been outed as planners of the January 6th events that culminated in the violent storming of the Capitol building as part of Donald Trump’s attempt to overthrow democracy.
One would think that he would avoid violent rhetoric, especially against Democratic lawmakers since they were directly at risk of being assassinated that day by the insurrectionists. But Gosar’s official congressional Twitter account published a video featuring anime characters that have been altered to depict Gosar killing Biden and Ocasio-Cortez, who feared for her life on January 6th.

This Twitter post is a threat against Biden and Ocasio-Cortez that should result in Gosar’s immediate arrest by the Capitol Police and expulsion from the House. Twitter should also ban him for violating community standards. It is truly despicable that Republicans continue to incite violence against Democrats and that GOP leaders refuse to do anything about it. This is why Democrats must crackdown on the insurrectionists and any GOP lawmaker who participated in or helped plan the attempted coup.
Twitter users shamed Gosar and demanded consequences.
Happy Monday in America, where @GOPLeader McCarthy’s colleague just posted a video of himself swinging two swords at President Biden. These blood thirsty losers are more comfortable with violence than voting. Keep exposing them. https://t.co/nlmEW9EHB4 pic.twitter.com/5BI895zvLG

This is the insanity of the Republican party. They have no platform, no policies that actually benefit American families. Gosar is nothing but a white supremacy loving seditionist. https://t.co/pNaUXIlenf

Republican Congressman Paul Gosar putting out a video that depicts him killing @AOC has gotten less coverage than the Red Hen not serving lying Press Sec Sarah Huckabee Sanders a burger because of her bigotry.
That’s the sort of Media double-standard Democrats are up against.

Gosar released a video of photoshopped clips of an anime show depicting him KILLING AOC. At the end, he is shown leaping into the air with his blades before striking the photoshopped head of President Joe Biden.
