On CNN Tuesday, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp criticized the Republican Party for ignoring the video tweeted out by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) depicting him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
“Gosar … posted this video meme, which he tweeted, of him killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a cartoon anime thing where he superimposed his face and her face,” said anchor John Berman. “She calls it a ‘fantasy murder video,’ basically. He also on this video shows himself brandishing swords at President Joe Biden. You know, and so far I haven’t heard from Republicans at all about this.”
“No, and listen, conservative women in particular have been frequently the victims of this kind of misogyny, the death fantasies, in some cases rape fantasies, I’ve been on the receiving end of that and it is really gross,” said Cupp. “Conservatives used to stand up to people like Keith Olbermann from his misogynist attacks.”
“When they come from the right, from Paul Gosar, from Donald Trump, it is crickets,” she continued. “It undercuts what are legitimate arguments against misogyny, which are bad for all women, regardless of your party, when you’re silent about the misogyny coming from your own. Paul Gosar is a cancer in the party, I think. I can’t believe that, you know, he’s frankly that he’s still there.”
