As a sheriff's department spokesman in rural Louisiana, Clay Higgins's rare candor precipitated his downfall, but not before it catapulted him to online fame and, more recently, a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Today, Higgins became famous for reacting to the London attack, thusly:
“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.”
