Representative Paul Gosar posts video depicting violence against Ocasio Cortez and Biden – .



“And he will not suffer any consequences because @GOPLeader encourages him with an apology,” added the New York Democrat.

He also shared a link to the video.

Gosar is portrayed as a cartoon-type hero and is seen attacking a giant with Ocasio-Cortez’s face with a sword from behind. The giant can then be seen collapsing to the ground.
Another scene shows Gosar flying through the air, swinging two swords at a figure with the face of President Biden.

Gosar did not respond to CNN’s request for comment for an explanation of the video and its significance.

Gosar’s chief digital officer, Jessica Lycos, told the Washington Post on Monday night: “Everyone needs to relax.”

The appeals to parliamentary minority leader Kevin McCarthy were also not returned.

Twitter said Monday evening that the video violated its “hateful conduct” rules but had not removed the video, instead affixing a tag saying: “Twitter has determined that it may be in the public interest that the Tweet remains accessible. “

The video was also posted on Instagram, owned by Facebook (now Meta).

Instagram does not appear to have taken any action on the video, and the company did not respond to CNN’s request for comment on Monday evening.

Gosar, a Republican congressman from Arizona, voted against certifying Biden’s election and said Ashli ​​Babbitt, who was shot on Capitol Hill on January 6, had been “executed” and that “(T) the Capitol police officer who did this shooting seemed to be hiding, watching, then gave no warning before killing her. “

Several law enforcement agencies, including the Department of Justice, cleared the officer of any wrongdoing during the shooting.

CNN’s Annie Grayer contributed to this report.
