Paul Gosar threatens AOC

GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, of Arizona, is under fire after he shared an anti-immigrant anime video that shows him killing Democratic congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, prompting condemnation and calls for his expulsion from Congress and for Twitter to suspend his account.

The clip shared by the controversial representative appears to be a photoshopped version of the opening credits of the Japanese animated series “Attack on Titan.”

“Any anime fans out there?” Gosar wrote in the tweet with a link to the video.

The 90-second video opens with Gosar’s name under Japanese text, which reads “attack of immigrants” before it continues to show real clips of Gosar and Border Patrol agents spliced alongside scenes from the anime show’s opening credits.

It then shows a collage of migrants walking and wading through water, along with blood splatter effects on the screen. As the clip continues, Gosar can be seen darting across a city alongside House lawmakers Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Gosar then hovers around a giant with Ocasio-Cortez’s face photoshopped on before the anime character launches into the air and comes down, slicing the back of the giant’s neck, killing it.

The clip ends with Gosar running a rooftop with blades drawn, then jumping toward a giant with President Joe Biden’s face photoshopped onto it with the blades pointing at Biden.

The clip was quickly condemned by Twitter users.

GOP strategist Rick Wilson tweeted: “Paul Gosar needs help.”

“Radical Republicans are dangerous,” Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu tweeted in response.
