Rep. Clay Higgins, a Republican from Louisiana, said on Facebook yesterday that every Muslim suspected of being radicalized should be killed.
The free world… all of Christendom… is at war with Islamic horror. Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identity them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.
-Captain Clay Higgins
Good thing he signed his name at the bottom or else we’d never know who said it…
Keep in mind that the U.S. has seen more violence over the past month at the hands of alt-right, white, usually Christian terrorists, not radical Muslims.
It’s another indication that the jihadists’ goal of waging a global holy war is working perfectly and Higgins is dumb enough to play right into their hands. (Not coincidentally, the “Education” section on his House website is devoid of any content.)
Jezebel’s Ellie Shechet points out that Higgins has “voted in line with Trump 100 percent of the time, and has spoken out in favor of the AHCA.” Which is to say he’s inflicting more harm on American citizens than any radicalized Muslims.
But, you know, he sounds tough. Which is usually all you need to do to excite conservatives who would immediately rebuke this kind of statement if anyone but a Christian ever made it.
