AZ Nutcase Rep. Paul Gosar tweets animation of himself killing AOC

Rep. Paul Gosar tweets photoshopped anime video showing him killing Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and attacking President Biden.

Rep. Paul A. Gosar (R-Ariz.) shared a photoshopped, animated video that depicts him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and swinging two swords at President Biden, prompting condemnation and calls for his Twitter and Instagram accounts to be suspended.

Ocasio-Cortez responded Monday night after arriving in Glasgow, Scotland, as part of a congressional delegation. Gosar, she said, will probably “face no consequences” because House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) “cheers him on with excuses.”

that is beyond political satire. Needs a visit from the Secret Service.

IIRC, that (threatening the life of a sitting member of Congress) is a federal crime.

Gosar’s digital director, Jessica Lycos, told The Washington Post in a statement that “we made an anime video” and “everyone needs to relax.”

“The left doesn’t get meme culture. They have no joy. They are not the future. It’s a cartoon. Gosar can’t fly and he does not own any light sabers. Nor was violence glorified. This is about fighting for truth,” she told the Post.

I found this interesting: ...prompting condemnation and calls for his Twitter and Instagram accounts to be suspended.

What, not prompting calls for his arrest?

Yeah! It's just a "cartoon". Nothing wrong with cartoons...

Extremists don’t believe leaders can incite people to act. Everything remains an individual decision. If something happens it’s a coincidence. Zero responsibility, and the rest of us are humorless idiots.

Alluding to Paul Gosar as a leader is a bit of a stretch.

If you posted the same about someone you work with, you'd be in cuffs in front of a judge.

No, it's not "OK", but...

Griffin has been a PROFESSIONAL comedian for 40 years. Gosar is (supposed to be) an elected member of the U.S. Congress.

I can tell the difference; apparently Gosar’s "digital director", Jessica Lycos, can't.

That would require a level of self awareness they do not possess except the wealthy who love to manipulate the rest of the Republican voters.

It makes me pissed off that there isn't an option for a conservative who doesn't believe they have the right to dictate to others while at the same time screaming and stamping their feet about personal rights. old fogey smiley

Also, she lost her job and a couple of years' income over that.

Exactly.

Comedy, satire, parody are protected expression, to a great degree.

We all don't have to like all of it, much of it being in poor tasted, as far as I'm concerned.

Yes, and for a comedian, as well (though I have no example.=).

And it's apparently OK for mere mortals, such as — oh, say — Forumites, as long as it's about a person who isn't famous, say a Florida man, or a politician, actor, or someine we don't like, as long as we keep it amongst us, as long as we think we're being clever or fun.

Speaking of comedy, it's funny how 'standards' work.

Ha.

Ha.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Threats of violence and incitement are not protected speech.

So is it your view that elected officials have no higher obligation to others than is imposed by this private forum? A forum with TOS that would prohibits the sort of personal abuse this mentally imbalanced Congresscritter has indulged in.

A cancer that has infected the republican party.

Pretty sure it has metastasized at this point.

Ya know, it's one thing to retweet a tasteless post created by some sycophant. It's quite another to commission the work yourself via your digital communications director.

Whatever happened to "with great power comes great responsibility"?
