Unlike Marjorie Taylor Greene or Lauren Boebert, Paul Gosar only seems to do something controversial every few months. When he does, though, it is usually something overwhelmingly embarrassing.The last time the Arizona Rep. was in the news, he had tweeted a video that featured him killing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This time around, he is attacking immigrants. Gosar recently forwarded an email of a anti-immigrant screed that followed along the lines of the great replacement theory.
The message Gosar sent was originally written by far-right radio host Stew Peters. It read in part:
“If America replaces its existing population with foreigners who are more violent or less capable, then this country will suffer. I don’t know why that’s so hard for people to grasp. It’s really quite simple.
America has a cultural identity that’s legitimate and worthy of defending. Diversity isn’t America’s strength, and if managed incorrectly, it can actually be its crippling weakness. America’s strength is its bedrock: the American people. And these people deserve to be protected from a globalist elite that hates them and wants them humiliated or destroyed and replaced or dead.”
While the message is certainly offensive, Gosar already knows he won’t face any kind of consequences. Kevin McCarthy has made it quite clear that Republican congresspeople can do pretty much whatever they want.
