  • Gosar defended himself after lawmakers criticized him for an anime video depicting him killing the AOC.

  • He said, “I do not advocate harming anyone … whether it be my own brothers and sisters.”

  • Many of Gosar’s siblings have openly criticized him.

Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona defended himself after his house censorship for sharing a violent anime clip, saying he had never physically harmed his siblings, even after they called him names.

House legislators voted this week to criticize Gosar to share an anime video that had been edited to portray him killing the rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attacked President Joe Biden.

Gosar was asked if he would have taken the position down if Ocasio-Cortez asked for it told SiriusXM on Thursday: “Absolutely. I’m not here for that. I’m not in favor of violence, I’m not in favor of harming anyone, whether it’s a member of Congress, whether it’s a president of the United States, whether it’s my own brothers and sisters.”

He then spoke at length about his seven siblings, many of whom have been openly critical of the congressman’s behavior and growing connections to white nationalist movements.

“I have seven siblings who are terrible to me,” Gosar said.

“I mean, they’ve done everything. They’ve called me all the names in the book, and yet I have done nothing, nothing about them at all. I have not done anything irrational.

“I have not done anything physical. I have never harmed them. I have never done anything. So that should tell you the caliber of the person you are talking to.”

Gosar’s brother Paul called this week for the legislature to be thrown out of Congress, saying, “He is dangerous, independent and ruthless.”

His sister Jennifer told MSNBC that she was glad that Gosar had been censored, calling the video he published “bone-hard.”
