Rep. Paul Gosar’s AOC Anime Video Is Protected by the First Amendment

Earlier this week, Rep. Paul Gosar (R–Ariz.) tweeted a parody anime video—a seemingly original take on the opening credits of the Attack on Titan series—that depicted a cartoon character with Gosar’s actual face attacking and killing a monster with the face of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.This is.

Twitter placed a warning label on the video to warn users that the content violates its policies regarding hateful conduct. This is it:

The video portrays Gosar, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R–Ga.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R–Colo.U.S. border agents acting as heroes in anime against the villainous illegal immigrant, President Joe Biden and Ocasio Cortez. The video isn’t very clever or funny. The only thing amusing about it is that Gosar—a 62-year-old man—actually knows what anime is.

It is unclear who the video editor was, but he may have been a Gosar employee.

Ocasio Cortez, however, did not like the video.

The video disturbed many of her coworkers. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D–Calif.) described Gosar as “bloodthirsty.” Rep. Ted Lieu (D–Calif.) pointed outIt is a common practice in America to fire coworkers who make an animated video that kills another person.

He is probably correct about this. Congress is different from other workplaces. The democratic process of elections determines who is elected to serve as employees. Gosar does not work for HR-conscious managers. Instead, he serves the people of Arizona. They can boot him if they do not like his cartoons.

One can sympathize with Gosar’s Democratic colleagues for being irritated with his highly unprofessional—even creepy—behavior. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.) But Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic House Speaker (Calif.) went beyond expressing disgust at the video and called on Gosar’s professional representation AndLegal consequences

One question is whether Gosar violated congressional ethics rules. It is clear that Gosar shared the anime video in bad taste, but he didn’t credibly risk the lives Ocasio Cortez or Biden. Parody videos of anime characters defeating villainous Democrats are clearly not a threat to violence. Gosar also tweeted satirically, just like Kathy Griffin’s notorious Trump head photo.

It is important to enforce the law. Please enter no The Gosar Video was not investigated as the Gosar team could only conclude that it is protected speech. And the government should not—and indeed, cannot—police speech solely because it is offensive to people in power, even if the speech is, in fact, offensive.

According to an American Enterprise Institute study, 19% of university job openings require that applicants make commitments to diversity. Robert Maranto, James Paul, and Robert Maranto analyzed over 1,000 job advertisements and found that nearly five percent of them required applicants to make commitments for supporting and promoting diversity and equity. This was more true for high-ranking positions, but it was just as prevalent for hard science positions.

Paul said that “the most astonishing finding of this paper is not that these requirements are just for the soft humanities.” Washington Free BeaconIt is. These statements would be expected to be more common in engineering and math, but they aren’t. These statements are not common in math and engineering. Free Beacon There are more

It is clear that the study’s 19% statistic may be a conservative estimate. One thing is that Paul and Maranto used only the terms “diverse”, or “diversity” in order to define jobs that required DEI statements. Postings that abstained from that language in favour of “equity” (or “antiracism”) weren’t included under their coding scheme.

Another reason is that the study was limited to job advertisements and not applications. Paul and Maranto could have missed applications that required diversity statements, which weren’t posted in the public post.

Paul stated, “I strongly suspect” that more DEI statements would be available if Paul applied for jobs. Our estimate is conservative.

Moderna and the federal government are fighting over who gets credit for creating key compounds used in the COVID-19 vaccine. According to The New York TimesYou can find this link:

The vaccine grew out of a four-year collaboration between Moderna and the N.I.H., the government’s biomedical research agency — a partnership that was widely hailed when the shot was found to be highly effective. It was called the “N.I.H. Moderna Covid-19 vaccination” by the government at that time.

The agency says three scientists at its Vaccine Research Center — Dr. John R. Mascola, the center’s director; Dr. Barney S. Graham, who recently retired; and Dr. Kizzmekia S. Corbett, who is now at Harvard — worked with Moderna scientists to design the genetic sequence that prompts the vaccine to produce an immune response, and should be named on the “principal patent application.”

Moderna disagrees. In a July filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the company said it had “reached the good-faith determination that these individuals did not co-invent” the component in question. The patent application, still pending, names several employees of the company as its sole inventors.

This is more than a matter of pride. If NIH scientists can be recognized as co-inventors it will make it easier to direct the vaccines and take a share of the profits.

The NIH released a statement saying that federal employees who were inventors in these patent applications had their rights transferred to the U.S. government. Accordingly, the NIH stated that should they [United States Patent and Trademark Office]The U.S. will own the rights to the patents if other countries’ patent authorities issue them.
