Gosar Gets Off Lightly

The House voted Wednesday to censure Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona for posting an animated video that depicted him killing Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a sword, an extraordinary rebuke that highlighted the political strains testing Washington and the country.
During one roughly 10-second section, animated characters whose faces had been replaced with Gosar, Greene and Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., were shown fighting other animated characters. Gosar’s character is seen striking another one made to look like Ocasio-Cortez in the neck with a sword. The video also shows him attacking President Joe Biden.

If Gosar wasn't a congressman, he would have likely been arrested for threatening the president. There is no shortage of idiots who have made similar threats and ended up in prison.

Gosar reposted the video after he was censured. He should now be expelled.

  1. And Liz the fuck Cheney, who voted with Fergus more reliably than Gosar, Gaetz, or most of the crazier-than-thou crew is no longer recognized as a Republican by her home state party.
