Republican Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins on his personal, verified Facebook page, called “for all of Christendom” to murder Muslims. Referring to Christians hunting and killing all Muslims, he posted, “Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engages 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.” Clay Higgins, like so many in the radical Right view law and geopolitics as a “holy war”, between the West and the East, between Christianity and Islam. The republicans do not care about the recent Islamic terrorist attacks, but instead report on them, and have conversations and discussions with other people regarding the issues, in order to push their unethical Anti-Muslim agenda.
This is not the first time Higgins has made racist and xenophobic comments either. Higgins, like so many other racists and white supremacists joined the police force, where he had later resigned, for being caught calling black youth, “thugs”, “heathens”, and “animals”. According to the ABC affiliate KATC; Higgins delivered a speech in January showing vocal support for Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban. We cannot let the Radical Right dictate to us and try to paint Muslims with a broad brush. It is important for us to keep in mind that most Muslims do no remotely condone the recent terrorists attacks in London, or any terrorist attack for that matter. The intolerant republicans are trying to push their Anti-Muslim agenda that they have been trying to push for decades, and we must not allow them to persecute others, which is what they love to do and which is what they want to invest in.
