In the rogue's gallery of sadistic ideologues, shameless grifters, and unrepentant bigots that make up the House GOP caucus, Rep. Paul Gosar has the dubious distinction of being one of the worst.
As the news broke of the horrifying massacre at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, Gosar used his official Twitter account to promote right-wing misinformation about the shooter by quoting another tweet saying that the killer was a "transsexual leftist illegal alien."
That tweet contained an image of a random trans woman from Reddit, chosen by right-wing trolls who jump to make false accusations and direct attention away from the real culprits every time something like this happens.
Demand Congress punish Paul Gosar for blaming trans people for the Robb school shooting!
By using his official account to target this innocent trans woman (who doesn't even live in Texas), Gosar amplified this lie far further than it ever had any right to be. That woman now has a target on her back, doubtlessly already being barraged with death threats and hate mail from Gosar's rabid followers.
Gosar regularly speaks at white supremacist conferences, has posted animated videos depicting himself killing Democratic members of Congress, and has a long history of promoting white supremacist rhetoric. But now he's put an innocent bystander in real danger — and he must be made to pay for it.
Demand Paul Gosar be expelled from Congress for blaming a trans person for the Uvalde massacre!
