Republican politician and former dentist who has served as the U.S. representative for Arizona's 4th congressional district since 2013. A Republican, he was elected in 2010 to represent the neighboring 1st congressional district until redistricting. Gosar's support of conspiracy theories and ties to the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and Holocaust deniers have sparked controversy. Gosar opposes the Affordable Care Act, abortion, gun control, and immigration. He has been a strong ally of former president Donald Trump, and voted to overturn the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election. On November 17, 2021, Gosar was censured by the House of Representatives and stripped of committee assignments for posting an edited clip of Attack on Titan depicting him killing a titan with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's face and attacking a character with President Joe Biden's face on social media. It was the first House censure since 2010 and the 24th in American history.

Gosar on Jan. 6 : 'I Was The One Who Started The Revolution'

By Tara Kavaler, Arizona Republic

Jun. 17. 2022

 

 

 
"As the Jan. 6 committee continues to lay out its findings to the public about what happened last year, a recording of U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar emerged in which he said, "I was the one who started the revolution." 
 
Gosar tied himself to the insurrection at a June event hosted by a Republican club in Bullhead City, according to a video obtained by The Arizona Republic.
 
"On January 6th, 2021, I was the one who started the revolution in regards to accountability of elections,"  the Arizona Republican said to some applause.
 
The comment was made after statements about the health insurance industry at the 1:35 mark of the approximately 2½ minute clip.
 
Gosar has fervently denied the 2020 presidential election results. He claims that former President Donald Trump lost because of widespread voter fraud, a notion that has never been proven. 
 
Gosar's office did not respond Thursday to a request for comment."

Responding quickly to a relatively obscure tweet Tuesday that presumed the gunman was "trash" who supported far-right House members like Gosar, R-Ariz., and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., Gosar hit back with an acid tweet of his own. "We know already fool. It's a transsexual leftist illegal alien named Salvatore Ramos. It's apparently your kind of trash," Gosar wrote on his personal Twitter account. Gosar later deleted the tweet"

"The Republican state senator was clear in what she wanted in a recent post on Telegram, the encrypted messaging app that has become a haven for far-right politics and extremists. “Dear Groyper army, please hit Ron Watkins. Love, Wendy,” she wrote. State Sen. Wendy Rogers was asking her fans and allies in the “groyper army” to go after the QAnon conspiracy theorist turned Congressional candidate because he had alleged Rogers, who has built her political brand on spreading lies about the 2020 election, was involved in some sort of “backroom deal” that was preventing Splunk logs and routers from being examined for alleged election fraud.

The Most Dangerous Man In Congress’: How Paul Gosar Became A Darling Of The Far Right
"The far-right congressman is one of Trump’s most loyal backers in Congress, earning him one of more than 90 endorsements made so far by the former US president ahead of this year’s crucial midterm elections. Gosar is the kind of politician that Trump – who is embarking on a series of rallies to try to cement his allies’ power in the Republican party – is increasingly seeking to support. But Gosar has extensive links to white nationalists and Capitol rioters and, many observers say, represents a dangerous new breed of Republican politician, who would have once been considered fringe, but whom Trump is increasingly making central to Republican party politics."

Trump-Supporting Arizona Politicians Push Election Lies At Florence Rally

 
"Kari Lake, a former TV anchor who's running for governor, began her speech with the theme of some of the other speakers, praising America under Trump and listing its problems under Biden. As did others, she called Trump “president” and slammed the 2020 election as “rotten to the core.""
[...]
"We are so blessed to have Donald Trump with us here today. We know the election was stolen,” state Sen. Wendy Rogers, R-Flagstaff, said when she took the stage, echoing the sentiments of other speakers and crowd members, who cheered her in response."
[...]
"Like-minded Trump supporters in the Legislature included speakers at Saturday's rally such as Rogers, Sen. Kelly Townsend, R-Mesa, Rep. Mark Finchem, R-Oro Valley, Sen. Sonny Borrelli, R-Lake Havasu City, and former representative Anthony Kern, who's running for the state Senate."
[...]
""They attacked Donald Trump because he exposed them and their evil deeds,” said Finchem, who's running for Arizona secretary of state, a position that oversees state elections."
[...]
"On Dec. 14, 2020, Kern and 10 other Arizonans, including state GOP Chair Kelli Ward and Rep. Jake Hoffman, R-Queen Creek, signed a document that was sent to Congress. All 11 people were listed on the general election ballot as the would-be electors for Trump."
[...]
"Borrelli pushed back on the fact that the belief in widespread election fraud that stole the presidency from Trump in 2020 was a “conspiracy theory.” He said there was indeed a conspiracy, but he claims "it’s not a theory.” He said the problem was “obstructionists” who oversee elections at the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office and in Maricopa County. Borrelli said that many of his peers in the Arizona House and Senate were behind him and other election deniers and that they were going to “tighten up the loopholes that these commie (expletive) have exploited.” The crowd cheered as Borrelli claimed that the “shamestream media” were hiding facts like “ghost voters” he said were found to have voted in Pima County in 2020. Pima County election officials deny there were any widespread problems with the election."
[...]
"Arizona Republican U.S. Reps. Debbie Lesko, Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, the latter two national leaders in the spread of falsehoods over the 2020 election, also spoke at the rally"

How Far Did Team Gosar Go To Pursue Election Conspiracy Theories?
"Even among radical voices in Republican politics, Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona stands out as extraordinary. Plenty of GOP officials peddle strange conspiracy theories about Donald Trump's 2020 election defeat, but the Arizona congressman — best known for his associations with white nationalists and animated video in which he was depicted killing one of his House colleagues — is a special case. After all, Gosar has described President Joe Biden as a "fraudulent usurper." He called the certification of the election results as "sedition." He praised Jan. 6 rioters as "peaceful patriots." He recently claimed to have a secret CIA source who told him about hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes, pointing to an intelligence office that doesn't appear to exist."

Paul Gosar Takes Credit For Covid Funding He Bashed As A ‘Democrat Spending Bonanza’

"The far-right representative from Arizona voted against the American Rescue Plan. He’s now calling some of its funding “essential” "

 
"Paul Gosar has repeatedly denounced the American Rescue Plan, a bill passed by Congress earlier this year to help Americans and businesses during the pandemic. Gosar labeled the plan, which cost $1.9 trillion, “a Democrat spending bonanza” and agreed with his colleague Matt Gaetz’s contention that it’s nothing more than “a trojan horse for socialism.” Gosar voted against the plan, of course, but in a Monday press release he happily took credit for a $32,000 American Rescue Plan grant that will help an Arizona airport clean and sanitize its facilities, calling the funds “essential.”
 
“I am pleased to announce that the City of Kingman will receive this critical funding for economic relief related to operational costs for cleaning and sanitizing the Kingman Airport to combat the spread of COVID-19,” Gosar wrote. “This funding is essential to maintaining safe and reliable air service to the community.”
 
Included in the release was a quote from Kingman Mayor Jen Miles thanking the Arizona representative for his “continued support.”
 
“We are grateful for Congressman Gosar’s continued support, and this funding will help with the ever-growing Kingman Municipal Airport operations,” Miles said.
 

 
Gosar and Miles’ offices did not immediately respond to a requests for comment from Rolling Stone.
 
As a refresher, here are some of the initiatives that were funded by the American Rescue Plan: $1,400 stimulus checks, increased child tax credits, extended unemployment insurance, rental assistance, and emergency funds for governments, in addition to funds for businesses. When Gosar voted against the plan, he called it a “supposed Covid relief bill” and claimed that the legislation “fails to compensate small and medium-sized businesses while providing only meager relief for the American people.” Not only did he vote against it, he proposed an amendment to give Americans $10,000 stimulus checks in an attempt to strip a number of other priorities from the bill."

Paul Gosar Knew He Should 'Keep On Going' When 'Marxist' Siblings Disavowed Anime Video
"Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) has credited his "Marxist" siblings for "screaming and squealing" about a video showing him killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as inspiration to "keep on going. Gosar was censured and removed from his House committee assignments last month over tweeting the edited anime video, which depicts him killing Ocasio-Cortez with a sword before turning the blade towards President Joe Biden. The Arizona Republican initially deleted the video from Twitter shortly after controversy ensued. However, he quickly reversed course, praising the video and sharing it in another tweet minutes after being censured. [...] Several of Gosar's siblings did disavow the video and blast their brother after he posted it. Jennifer Gosar, the congressman's youngest sibling, called him "a sociopath" while urging Congress to hold him "accountable" during a CNN interview last month. Jennifer celebrated his censure during a later interview with MSNBC, adding that she hoped the move was "not the end" of his punishment."

Gosar has steadfastly refused to honor any of the men and women who defended the nation’s Capitol (and him) that day. Instead, Gosar chose the six-month anniversary of that now-infamous day to pay tribute to one of the rioters and to continue his quest to sic the mob on the Capitol police officer who killed her."

Steve King, the Iowa congressman who finally stepped aside in the election, used to play the role. Nowadays, Paul Gosar of Arizona seems to have become the go-to guy. Last Friday, Gosar was the keynote speaker in Orlando, Florida, at the America First Political Action Committee (AFPAC) conference organized by white nationalist troll Nicholas Fuentes, leader of the alt-right “Groyper Army.” He followed that up Monday by tweeting out a meme featuring the group’s motto, “America First is Inevitable.”"
