“The tweeted video – which he captioned, “Any anime fans out there?” – opens with Gosar’s name under Japanese text that reads “attack of immigrants,” an apparent reference to the anime show “Attack on the Titan” from which the Republican pulled various clips.”
It gets worse, as always.
“About midway into the video, “Attack on the Titan main character Eren Yaeger is shown in a mashup of clips with Gosar’s face photoshopped onto the cartoon character. Swords in both hands, the fictionalized Gosar scales a European-esque urban landscape alongside cartoon versions of Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Lauren Bobert, R-Colo., until slaying what appears to be a titan with Ocasio-Cortez’s face photoshopped onto it.”
Then the coup d’etat, if you will.
“Toward the end, the cartoon Gosar is shown leaping into the air with his blades unsheathed moments before striking the photoshopped head of President Joe Biden.”
Yes, it’s bad. But it seemingly doesn’t break any rules on Twitter. Me? I’m still suspended. Now, sure, I could delete the tweet in question, but I don’t think I want to do that. I mean, hell, if you can make a whole ass video depicting violence towards members of our government, saying that traitors deserve Pb between their eyes shouldn’t break their rules either. It’s not actual violence, just words.
But apparently, that does. Of course, because it offends the more conservative, it does.
I really don’t care if I get my account back. I don’t use it that often and quite frankly, social media is just too damn tedious.
