Armageddon here we come: Republican Congressman Clay Higgins is calling for a Christian holy war against “Islamic horror.”
Writing on his Facebook page, Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins declared: that “every single Islamic suspect” should be hunted down and killed, declaring:
Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.
In his post, Higgins said that “all of Christendom… is at war with Islamic horror”:
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
Note: Rep. Higgins is suggesting that every “suspect” should be executed – no trial, no jury, no due process – nothing but a summary execution for simply being a suspect.
Reporting on the story, Mother Jones reports:
With his declaration that Christendom is “at war with Islamic horror,” Higgins was embracing a theme of the far-right: the fight against extremist jihadists is part of a fundamental clash between Christian society and Islam.
Higgins, a former police captain, was elected to Congress in November. The newly minted congressman has a reputation for controversial and inflammatory anti-Muslim rhetoric. In January Higgins gave a speech defending Trump’s Muslim travel ban while blaming Obama for producing “Radical Islamic Terrorists.”
In his speech, Rep. Higgins said:
Thank God that President Trump has upheld his oath to protect American lives…
I’ve watched carefully and prayerfully as terror attack after terror attack has shed American blood on American soil, and I’ve been privy to many Jihadist plots that were stopped because of the dedicated courage of skilled law enforcement investigators, the same cops that have been for years maligned, attacked, and murdered across our nation by Americans incited to violence by dangerously irresponsible rhetoric from the left.
As for Rep. Higgins’s Facebook post calling for a Christian holy war, USA Today reports the post has been reported to the House Ethics Committee.
Bottom line: Christian congressman Clay Higgins is calling for a holy war against “Islamic Horror,” and wants everyone suspected of being radicalized by Islam executed.
