Republican Congressman Says The Solution To Radical Islam Is To "Kill Them All"

Clay Higgins, the newly elected Republican congressman from Louisiana, has just called for a holy war appealing to "All of Christendom" to "hunt down" Muslims and "kill them all".

Here is Higgins Facebook post where he made sure not to skimp on the crazy...

"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."

He seems nice.

The problem with Higgins' post is that he fails to differentiate between terrorists found guilty of radicalization and those merely suspected of such an act.

In addition when ol' Clay states that we should deny assistance to any nation that harbors the "heathen animals" he does not specify if that would apply to England, France, Indonesia, Spain, and other nations where jihadist cells have committed horrific acts of violence. Would we have to deny assistance to places like San Bernardino and Miami where the last terror attacks in the US took place.

This is not Higgins' first time blowing the Islamaphobic dog-whistle. In late January he delivered a floor speech attacking Democrats and the "liberal media" for opposing Donald Trump's Muslim ban. In it he declared that...

"radical Islamic horror has gripped the world and…unbelievably…been allowed into our own nation with wanton disregard."

I imagine Trump will be electing him to a cabinet position any minute now.

You know what, I take it back... He seems unwell.
