Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and other Democrats slammed Representative Paul Gosar for a parody video that showed the Arizona Republican punching her and then running with swords in his hand towards President Biden.
Gosar tweeted out the 90-second video with the caption, “Any anime fans out there?”

“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,” she wrote. “This dude is just a collection of wet toothpicks anyway.”
“White supremacy is for extremely fragile people and sad men like him, whose self-concept relies on the myth that he was born superior because deep down he knows he couldn’t open a pickle jar or read a whole book by himself,” she added.
It’s unclear how the video portrays “white supremacy,” but AOC didn’t explain. As always.
As I was driving to Glasgow, I came across a creepy colleague who funds Neo-Nazi organizations. He shared this video as a fantasyland of me being killed.
And he’ll face no consequences bc @GOPLeaderHe cheers him up with excuses.

Naturally, she is free to criticize it for its cringe element.
But the “killing me” charge is a bit of overkill if you will. It’s anime. AOC was as in danger as on January 6th.

Democrats lose their minds
The video posted by Gosar ‘attacking’ AOC and President Biden led several prominent Democrats to have a public nervous breakdown on social media.
Former Long Island Campaign Chair for Barack Obama, Jon Cooper, called for an investigation and Gosar’s expulsion from Congress.
BREAKING! This is outrageous! Republican Paul Gosar shared an animated video in which he killed Alexandria OcasioCortez.

Representative Ted Lieu (D-HI) truly put the Lieu in ‘lieunatic,’ calling for Gosar’s removal from congressional committees after accusing him of “encouraging violence.”
Radical Republicans can be dangerous. Rep. Paul Gosar’s encouragement of violence is unacceptable. His removal from the congressional committees is necessary.
Haven’t we had enough political violence already? He would have been fired at any other place in America. https://t.co/LE4UMVhBqr

Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA), whose vacation photo from Qatar in which he was riding a camel shirtless probably caused more physical harm to people than Gosar’s video ever will, blasted the Republican lawmaker as a “bloodthirsty loser.”
American Monday is a happy one! @GOPLeader McCarthy’s colleague just posted a video of himself swinging two swords at President Biden. These blood thirsty loser are happier with violence than they are voting. Don’t hesitate to expose them. https://t.co/nlmEW9EHB4 pic.twitter.com/5BI895zvLG

Democrats haven’t been this apoplectic since Donald Trump tweeted a hilarious video in which he ‘hit’ Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.
Twitter slapped Gosar’s video with a warning indicating the tweet violated rules “about hateful conduct,” but indicated it would remain posted because they “determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”
Gosar dismissed the controversy bragging, “The creativity of my team is off the hook.”
Gosar’s digital director, Jessica Lycos, responded by saying, “Everyone needs to relax.”
