  • Rep Paul Gosar posted a #gosarlife meme on Gettr, a play on the “thug life” meme.

  • Gosar also re-tweeted the same anime video that got him censored in the first place.

  • He was censored for tweeting a violent anime edition of himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Arizona Republican Representative Paul Gosar responded to House censorship by posting a #gosarlife meme of himself and retweeting the same violent anime montage that left him stripped of his committee posts .

Congress voted on Wednesday on a resolution brought forward by House Democrats to censor Gosar for an edited animated video of him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The video prompted Ocasio-Cortez to call Gosar a “scary member I work with who raises funds for neo-Nazi groups” who shared a “fantastic video” of himself killing her.

Democratic representatives, including Cori Bush and Adam Schiff, berated Gosar for posting the video. Meanwhile, GOP Representative Liz Cheney said Republican leaders had “lost their moral compass” because of their silence on Gosar’s video.

Gosar later published a declaration saying the video was a symbolic depiction of the struggle in Congress over immigration. He also told his GOP colleagues this week that he “does not believe in violence against a member.”

However, on Wednesday Gosar refused to apologize for posting the video on House floors, comparing his censorship to that of Alexander Hamilton. A few hours after the censorship, Gosar re-tweeted the AOC video.

Gosar then posted an article on the social media platform Gettr on Wednesday evening, reposting an edited image of himself with a heavy gold chain and shades layered over his face. The image featured the words “GOSAR LIFE” – a reimagining of the #thuglife meme often used to highlight “gangster” or explicit teen behavior.

Gosar captioned the image with the phrase “Can’t hold back” and also made a video statement on the platform.

“I just came back from the room with the Democrats, who censored me for challenging their America Last agenda. They should know that I won’t be bullied, even if they challenge me and try to take my agenda away. America First, ”Gosar said in his video statement. “It’s great to be on a service that won’t be censored. And if you like cartoons, I love it. I can’t wait to have a good chat with you soon.”

Separately, Gosar re-tweeted the same video it got him censored just hours after lawmakers voted to censor him and strip him of his committee positions.
