The House will today vote on censuring Republican Paul Gosar and stripping him of committee assignments after he posted a photo-shopped anime video of him killing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrats are demanding that the Arizona representative be removed from the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and the Committee on Natural Resources.

He also faces censure for the cartoon video posted to his Twitter and Instagram accounts last week showing him stabbing AOC in the back before lunging at Joe Biden with the blade.

Democrats said Gosar's actions amounted to threatening another member's life, calling the video 'so beyond the pale.'

Republicans warned them to be careful about dictating the punishment of those who serve in the minority because of the precedent it will set.

Gosar, who is no stranger to controversy and an ally of firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, has refused to apologize but deleted the video from his social media.

A censure resolution is the most severe reprimand available to the House and requires the representative in question to stand before lawmakers while the resolution is read out. The House has censured its members on 23 occasions.

It was last wielded against Rep. Charlie Rangel, a New York Democrat, in 2010 after reports that he was renting 2,500-square-foot of apartments in the Big Apple for half the market rate. 

Gosar (pictured at an America First rally in Arizona in May) has refused to apologize but deleted the video from his social media.

Republicans last night warned Democrats to be careful about dictating the punishment of those who serve in the minority because of the precedent it will set.

Earlier this year, the House stripped Georgia Rep. Taylor Greene, of her committee assignments for spreading hateful and violent conspiracy theories.

'This is a dark and dangerous road the majority is going down,' Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma, the ranking Republican on the House Rules Committee, said Tuesday. 'I urge you for the future of the chamber to rethink this course.'

Gosar posted the video over a week ago with a note saying, 'Any anime fans out there?'

The roughly 90-second video was an altered version
