Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins declared jihad between “the free world”, which he apparently sees as “all of Christendom,” and “Islamic horror.” Higgins called for what he refers to as all “radicalized Islamic suspects” to be hunted down and killed. Higgins’ posted the message on his Facebook page and it seems to be in response to the recent London terror attacks. He does not mention any other terrorists, just “Islamic” ones.
He apparently has no problem with white supremacist terrorists, or any US allies that drop bombs on civilians, or target apartment buildings, hospitals, or government buildings. He only wants jihad on those he calls “radicalized Islamic suspects.” It doesn’t matter if there is no evidence or if the person has done nothing wrong. As long as they are a “suspect” of being radicalized, then they should be killed.
That means anyone that has been to a country where there is anyone considered to be a “radical Muslim group” should be killed, because they may have been radicalized while vacationing. He goes on to support the unconstitutional Muslim ban as well.
“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, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”
As a former police Captain, Higgins is no stranger to controversy. Captain Higgins gained national attention and was dubbed the “Cajun John Wayne” for Louisiana Crime Stopper videos he scripted and starred in. His videos had an authoritative tone and often used derogatory language while calling out criminals by name. He resigned as a police Captain in 2016 after being ordered to tone down his videos by the local Sheriff reported The Fifth Column.
The last controversial video he made featured Higgins front and center holding an automatic rifle while surrounded by a ring of armed men in police and combat uniforms. The ACLU did not support the video, and they said: “nothing that Mr. Higgins said will make his community safer, but there is much to suggest violations of fundamental rights of all.”
“Higgins public messages, which often carry an aura of Christian moral superiority, are somewhat in conflict to his personal life. Higgins has been married four times and admits to committing adultery. Additionally, in November of 2016, his ex-wife filed a lawsuit alleging Higgins owes over $140,000 in child support. A statement from his ex-wife’s lawyer calls out the hypocrisy: “This man is putting himself out as a model citizen. But he economically abandoned his children for years and years.”Higgins notoriety as the “Cajun John Wayne” ultimately lead him to a seat in the House of Representatives as a Congressman from the Third District of Louisiana. In December of 2016 Higgins beat the favorite and longtime politician, Scott Angelle, by winning 56.1% of the vote,” said TFC.
Higgins does not really seem to be much of a model Christian, perhaps he needs some time to reconsider his own life before he declares a holy war. He is much more like what he claims to hate than he realizes.
