Ocasio-Cortez delivered a passionate speech on the House floor minutes before the lower house voted to censor Gosar for sharing the violent anime video, and asked her colleagues to make it clear that they will not tolerate provocations of violence against members of Congress.
“What is so difficult to say that this is wrong? It’s not about me. This is not about Representative Gosar. But it’s about what we’re willing to accept, ”Ocasio-Cortez said.
When asked by MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace what was going through his head as he listened to Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, Tim Gosar, the brother of the congressman who has been critical of the Arizona Republican in the past, said that Ocasio-Cortez was ” powerful, concise and accurate. ” “
“Saying what matters and what is important and what is true and accurate, so I congratulate her and hope that people are listening,” added Tim Gosar, before calling his brother “dangerous” and calling him out of the Congress.
The House voted primarily along partisan lines Wednesday to censor Gosar in response to the video he posted, which sparked backlash from Democrats and was ultimately removed from his Twitter account. Since then, Gosar has argued that the video was symbolic of a debate on immigration.

“I think there is no other option, given those two,” added Tim Gosar.
“I think he is dangerous, unhinged, reckless and is someone who, as we have said before, not only needs to be censored, but needs to be expelled,” he added about his brother. “And if at the end of that process, if he is expelled and criminal charges are warranted, then criminal charges will also be filed.”
