Paul Gosar's Sister Calls Him a 'Sociopath' for Posting Video of Him Killing AOC

The sister of Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has called him "a sociopath" after he posted a controversial anime video where he is pictured killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Speaking to CNN host Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday, Jennifer Gosar said she believed her brother's behavior will escalate.

She said: "It definitely is getting worse because no one holds him accountable. Not [House Minority Leader] Kevin McCarthy, not Senate [Minority] Leader Mitch McConnell, not Senate [Majority] Leader Chuck Schumer, not Speaker Nancy Pelosi, not Attorney General Merrick Garland. No one holds him accountable.

"And this is something that I have to openly wonder, does he have to act on it himself before we believe that he is an absolute, he's a sociopath.

"And what's more we know, from everything we have seen and certainly Attorney General Garland has seen much more of it than I, that there is evidence to show that he was [not intelligible] conspiracy to commit treason against the United States of America.

"Where is the accountability?"

Her comments come days after Rep. Gosar shared a photoshopped anime video where he killed a giant Rep. Ocasio Cortez by cutting the back of her neck with two blades.

The doctored clip used scenes from the opening credits of the popular Japanese anime Attack on Titan, a show where soldiers defend walled cities from man-eating giants who attempt to get at the citizens inside.

Rep. Gosar's video also appeared to use footage of migrants at the southern border and included blood splatter effects over clips that showed a caravan of people walking.

On Monday, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to the controversial tweet with a Twitter post of her own where she called Rep. Gosar "creepy."

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez also said she believed Rep. Gosar would face no consequences for the tweet "bc [because] @GOPLeader [Kevin McCarthy] cheers him on with excuses."

Fellow Democrats rallied behind Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and condemned the tweet, with Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) calling for the Republican to be removed from Congressional committees.

In response to growing criticism over his tweet, 62-year-old Rep. Gosar trolled his critics with a two-sided meme of a "crying Wojack" with the caption: "You're cartoon anime scares me with your jetpack flying and light sabers."

A "Yes Chad" figure then responded, saying: "It's a cartoon. Relax."

The controversial video has since been pulled from Rep. Gosar's Twitter page, although the video can still be found on his Instagram page.

Newsweek has contacted Rep. Gosar and House Minority Leader McCarthy for comment.
