The president is also urging the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthyKevin McCarthy Rep. MORE (R-Calif.) To join Democrats in supporting investigations into Gosar by both the House Ethics Committee and outside law enforcement agencies.

“Threats of violence against members of Congress and the President of the United States should not be tolerated,” Pelosi tweeted Tuesday. “@GOPLeader should come together to condemn this horrible video and ask the Ethics Committee and law enforcement to investigate.”

Gosar sparked a storm of controversy Monday when he tweeted an animated video showing him and other Republicans as heroic warriors fighting Democrats, interspersed with images of migrants arriving at the southern border of the United States.

The video features characters from a Japanese-style anime series, their faces replaced with images of Gosar and two other conservative brand names: Representatives Lauren Boehbert (R-Colo.) And Marjorie Taylor GreeneMarjorie Taylor GreeneGOP’s Efforts to Minimize the Danger of Capitol Riots Increase Memorandum: Now What for Anti-Trump Republicans? Rep.

In one scene, Gosar’s character executes another character, manipulated to represent Ocasio-Cortez, striking her on the back of the neck with a sword.

In another, Gosar confronts Biden head-on with two drawn swords.

While promoting the video to his Twitter followers, Gosar asked, “Any anime fans?”

The video has sparked another national debate about discourse and civility in political discourse, as well as the role of tech giants in policing the content that appears under their labels. Twitter, facing backlash, refused to remove Gosar’s video, but has attached a warning label to it.

That attack has sparked rampant mistrust between the parties on Capitol Hill, where the fear of further violence is palpable even 11 months later. And other Democratic leaders were quick to join Pelosi in urging McCarthy to take action against Gosar for announcing the anime violence.

“In any other job in the United States, if a co-worker recorded a video killing another co-worker, that person would be fired,” said the four leaders of the Democratic policy and communications team, the representatives.

Said Tuesday in a statement.

“Mr. McCarthy must decide whether he will ultimately support the American people on the side of law and order or continue to support violence and chaos.”

Neither Gosar’s nor McCarthy’s office responded to requests for comment Tuesday.

Ocasio-Cortez responded Monday night in a tweet of her own, saying that “a creepy member I work with who raises funds for neo-Nazi groups shared a fantasy video of him killing me.”

“And he will face no consequences,” he added, “bc @GOPLeader cheers him on with excuses.”
