Watch: AOC Takes Down Kevin Mccarthy Ahead of Gosar Censure Vote: ‘What Is So Hard About Saying That This Is Wrong?’

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the target of Congressman Paul Gosar’s animated video that depicted him murdering her, spoke on the House floor Wednesday afternoon ahead of the final vote that will make him one of the few members of Congress to have ever been censured.

“AOC,” as she is called, did not direct her remarks to Gosar so much as she berated House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who spoke just before her.

McCarthy used his time to speak on the motion to attack Democrats and President Joe Biden over gas prices, Afghanistan, and the economy, while falsely claiming that censuring the Republican member from Arizona is “unprecedented.”


“What I believe is ‘unprecedented,'” Ocasio-Cortez said in response, “is for a member of House leadership of either party, to be unable to condemn incitement of violence against a member of this body.” she said. “It is a sad day in which a member who leads a political party in the United States of America cannot bring themselves to say that issuing a depiction of murdering a member of Congress is wrong, and instead decides to venture off into a tangent about gas prices and inflation. What is so hard what is so hard about saying that this is wrong? This is not about me. This is not about representative gozar but this is about what we are willing to accept.”


“This nihilism runs deep. And it conveys and betrays a certain contempt for meaning and importance for the work we do here.”

High drama on the US House floor as the House debated the proposed censure of far right nutjob congressman Paul Gosar. 

AOC followed Kevin McCarthy to the podium and scorched McCarthy's excuse making for Gosars cartoon depiction on twitter of him killing AOC by stabbing her in the back.

It's nothing new for him. He's been a two-faced skank for years. He now wants a position in Congress he knows he can't win on his own, so he had now glued his lips firmly to Trumps a$$ in hopes Trump gets re-elected and he can have his desired position. 

One he becomes of no use to Trump anymore, Trump will dump him under the bus, just like Trump has done to all his other 'loyal' allies, as to Trump, loyalty only goes one way. And he does not bear any loyalty to anyone but himself.

Many high ranking Democrats death-wished Trump repeatedly

This is the title of the article you seeded.

Curley: Joe Biden’s decency act has grown tiresome as Democrats wish death on Trump

Did you read the article? There is a grand total of one reference in there of death wishing Trump. 

Hillary Clinton’s former spokeswoman, Zara Rahim, tweeted, “It’s been against my moral identity to tweet this for the past four years, but, I hope he dies (from covid).”

This was said in late 2020 by someone who was a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton 5 years ago. 

Gosar depicted himself murdering one of his co-workers in Congress.

I remember someone on this very site claiming that Kathy Griffin holding a beheaded Trump head as some sort of response to Trump saying "blood coming out of her wherever. Yep. Sure did.

Was a high ranking hollyweird dumbass and many people thought it was funny as hell until they remembered they weren't supposed to be that way due to their continual virtue signaling.

Many right here on NT did and still do.  What difference does that make?  It is wrong in any case and those who do it should be held accountable for it, including Gosar.  I don't much care for AOC either, but I would never wish her dead, and certainly not depict myself as the one making it happen.  That is just sick!

A very true and moving speech by AOC. She didn't just make it all about her, but, about Congress as a whole. 

Very well spoken.

I am betting that if a video were to be made of the both of them being death wished, they would be singing a different tune.

Oh how soon they forget. Anyone wonder why Maxine Waters wasn't at least censured or even expelled from Congress for inciting violence?

You just posted four links to the same incident. What did you think? One of them would not be believable?

Matters not how many point to the same incident. Point is, nothing came of it. THINK man. To quote a very astute, in their own mind, member here, "What is wrong with you?"

Inciting violence is wrong, right?  No matter what party the inciter is a member of.

Both Waters and Gosar were wrong.   And in general, any elected official doing this is wrong.   Do you agree?

If so, it is best to not defend Gosar, et. al. with 'but they do it too' but to criticize ALL who do it.

Oh, but they are not criticizing all who do it are they? They are singling out Gosar. 

Democrats are great at ignoring their own members violating all rules of conduct; and then holding Republicans to different standards. 

Until Democrats hold their side accountable; fuck them all.

I was asking Jim if he thought that inciting violence by a public official is wrong regardless of their party.

Do you think that inciting violence is wrong regardless of party?

Just stand up and answer the question.

Yep but damn it, there needs to be equal disgust and "punishment", as you say, no matter what party and they fucking failed with Mad Madame Maxine. It's bullshit but at the time it was all about "but Trump". Assholes are proud of it too.

Well that equal reaction comes one individual at a time.   The important thing is that one recognizes that wrong is wrong regardless of party affiliation.

Republican shares cartoon video of himself assassinating a member of congress and attacking the current President with swords and Republicans rally around him claiming free speech rights and refuse to even censure him. Kathy Griffith shares photo of herself with fake plastic looking severed Trump head and Republicans loose their fucking minds demanding she be canceled and her career ruined. Conservative Republican hypocrisy truly knows no bounds.
