Democrats Want This Anime Video Deleted Because They Claim It’s “Violent”

( You may have heard how the House of Representatives this week voted to censure Republican Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar for supposedly posting a “violent” video on his Twitter account. He was stripped of his two committee assignments in the same way that the Democrats stripped Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her assignments.

It’s a troubling trend of Democrats abusing their power to censor and stop their political opponents from doing their job, but it’s even more concerning when you actually look at the video they objected to.

The House voted mostly along party lines on Wednesday to censure Gosar, with only two Republicans voting with the Democrats, based on media reports that Gosar had indirectly threatened other members of Congress and the president with the video.

But all you need to do is watch the video and you’ll see how nonsensical this whole thing is. The anime-style cartoon video stars Gosar as the hero and President Joe Biden and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the villains. It’s comedic and silly, and badly edited – and in the clip, Gosar uses common anime-type weapons to take them both down.

After sharing the video on Twitter it was promptly removed from the platform for allegedly promoting violence – which it didn’t – but you can see it for yourself below:

The “violent” parts of the video are so short and so insignificant that they are easily missed.

In a statement, Gosar defended his staff for creating the video and said that the “faux outrage” about it is “infantile.”

He added that the “shrill accusations” about the cartoon being dangerous is “laughable” and “intentionally hyperbolic.”

“This is a cartoon. It is not a documentary. It is not real life,” he added.

You’d think the people tasked with running the country would recognize the difference…
