the SILENCE is deafening


His supporters say, can’t you take a joke? Other tout artistic freedom? If this artistry took place at an high school, or in a work place, alarm bells would go off, there would be investigation. They would look into the background of the artist.

The picture wasn’t created by a student or a colleague in the work place. It was congressman who created an anime video depicting him killing his colleague Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.

In one scene, Ocasio-Cortez’s face is edited over one of the original face and the congressman who created the video fly’s into the air and slashes the image representing Ocasio-Cortez in the back of the neck, killing her.

In another scene, the congressman swings two swords at a foe whose face has been replaced by that of President Biden.

The animated scenes of the video are interspersed with real-life footage of Border Patrol officers, some standing shoulder-to-shoulder and others on horseback rounding up migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.

In one scene, footage of migrants crossing the Rio Grande is overlaid with what appears to be splattered blood. In another, the words “drugs,” “crime,” “poverty,” “money,” “murder,” “gangs,” “violence” and “trafficking” flash across the screen. The video also features shots of congressman, the Capitol and migrant caravans.

His supporters downplay the violence in the videos, others say calm down. His supervisors are quiet.

In the world we live in, we would be investigated and possibly arrested and we would most certainly lose our jobs. But were not in congress.
