Democrats and Republicans have disagreed for the better part of the year over when speech becomes dangerous, and on Wednesday, House Democrats said Gosar’s latest move – an anime video depicting him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and attacking President Joe Biden – had gone too far.
“Depictions of violence can foment actual violence and jeopardize the safety of elected officials, as witnessed in this chamber on January 6, 2021,” Democrats wrote in their censure.
The House passed the motion 223-207, with the vote falling largely along party lines. Two Republicans joined Democrats in supporting it.
Gosar was defiant, as he had been earlier this year regarding his actions leading up to Jan. 6. Referring to the anti-immigration theme of the anime video, the congressman said there was “no threat” in it other than “the threat that immigration poses to our country.”
