Louisiana Congressman Threatens to Shoot Armed Protesters

Facebook removed the post for breaking the company’s “Violence and Incitement” policies, a company spokesperson confirmed late Tuesday.

The picture Higgins attached was taken from news coverage of an armed group of protesters marching in Louisville earlier this summer to protest the killing of Breonna Taylor during a botched police raid.

“We don’t want to see your worthless ass nor do we want to make your Mothers cry,” Higgins wrote.

Higgins is a loud champion of gun rights — including the right to openly carry firearms in public, which is legal in Louisiana — and regularly wears a handgun while in the state.

– Jerry DiColo and Bryn Stole in Clay Higgins says on Facebook that armed demonstrators ‘won’t walk away’ from Louisiana protests

    Hm.

    The man you fear is the man who does not bluster and rant, who does not bluff.

    This sort of tough talk might play well with the voters … but it’s the quiet ones that you don’t know what they are thinking of doing, that you worry about if you are going to start something.

      Exactly, and he’s not helping at all.

      So are you assuming he is bluffing?

      1. avatar Joel says:

        The ‘voters’ this statement supposedly caters to ARE The quiet ones you have to worry about. Whether he personally follows through with this promise or not, he is giving fair warning. Not just making noise.

      2. avatar JOLJ says:

        I think he is helping a lot.
        He just told the quiet ones ” do not worry, I got your back, when they come from out of state. You guys missed the hold thing, he stood up for the quiet ones & they understand he talking to them & for them.

          Except that an ARMED response is the APPROPRIATE response to what happened to Breonna Taylor. That was pure, unadulterated FUCKUP on the part of the militarized police state. Everyone involved in that action should be unemployed and awaiting trial for murder. PERIOD. Don’t @ me with “you’re just like those defund the police…”
          No, I’m not. The prohibition era needs to end. What happened to her is the end, net, inevitable result of an unaccountably violent enforcement arm when the politicos keep being allowed to make STUPID laws that dictate how consenting adults behave. The guy running his mouth here(OP, not the commenters) is a fascist. HE is one of the guys who’ll stack up at YOUR door to confiscate your arms if his overlords tell him to. Learn to spot the difference.

          burley, what makes this guy a fascist?

        3. avatar RGP says:

          Not sure if most Americans know it, but “Burley” is a derogatory slang term for the police.

        4. avatar burley says:

          He threatened to shoot people based on appearance not action. Meaning, that EITHER he was referring to assemblies or ALL militias or just black ones. Either way, he was making it clear that he would not tolerate armed civilians in any sort of protest or formation, MERELY because he feels threatened by them. How is that NOT fascism?

          Also, I am NOT an anarchist, nor do I hate all cops. Don’t conflate my name with any sort of statement. It’s just a nickname I got on a jobsite decades ago…
          I am, however, opposed to unaccountable police violence, of which we have an abundance. This guy is a perfect example.

        5. avatar jwtaylor says:

          burley, that does not make someone a fascist. Please look up the word, it has a definition. Your criteria does not meet it.

          “Not sure if most Americans know it, but “Burley” is a derogatory slang term for the police.”

          H’mmm. Reminds me of something :

          First Witch – “When shall we three meet again
          In thunder, lightning, or in rain?”

          Second Witch -” When the hurly-burly’s done,
          When the battle’s lost and won.”

          Bad-boy ‘Billy Shakespeare’… 😉

        7. avatar burley says:

          To be clear: in every definition of the word fascism this phrase was part of the definition:
          “Forcible suppression of opposition…”
          How is this not what this guy is talking about?
          The dude is an asshat. You might also be one if you tolerate belligerent cops who threaten american citizens just because they have a particular posture. You are either FOR constitutional rights or you aren’t. What part of “Peacable assembly” and “Shall not be infringed” don’t you understand?
          Be consistent in your position. Are you OK with violence against innocents? If not, you need to recognize this guy in his threats said nothing about their behavior; merely the presence of an armed assembly was enough for him to open fire. He’s murderous, blood thirsty and damned inciteful; NOT fit for the authority backed by a badge. It saddens me deeply that you seem to miss these salient points. I’m so sick of people claiming to care about Truth, Justice and The American Way, only to then condone or even encourage unprovoked violence against those they disagree with. THAT is fascism.

      Some people have been waaaay too quiet for waaaay too long. There is a line in the sand and reminding those who bully, loot, and burn that there is a price to pay for engaging in criminal activities is prudent.

      Also quiet are the gutless wonders who sat around blowing smoke and allowed politically inept history illiterates to become useful idiots for the democRat Party. How did that happen you ask? The democRat Party has never been held accountable for its long despicable history of racism. The kind of racism that makes what is labeled as racism today look like a harmless fuzzball.

      The democRat Party has whitewashed itself and convinced useful idiots that the Republican Party, The Party of Lincoln is racist. That makes the only honorable thing for useful idiots to do is fight those perceived to be racists. Unfortunately the only thing marching useful idiot drama queens are accomplishing is lint licking the race baiting democRat Party clean of its long despicable history of race based atrocities. Atrocities that spanned coast to coast not just in the South as history rewrites want useful idiots to believe.

      The evidence against the democRat Party for holding the democRat Party liable and accountable for Monetary Reparations is overwhelming. Consider the fact the democRat Party has no problem going back in history and holding tobacco companies, talcum powder companies and a laundry list of others liable for damages so any excuse that atrocities ranging from Slavery to Eugenics to Gun Control and in between was a long time ago doesn’t fly.

      Bottom line…A Black American belonging to the democRat Party makes as much sense as a Jew belonging to the nazi party.

      1. avatar A-Argh15 says:

        Very well said. Thank You. We need to tell historical FACTS to our families, our friends, our neighbors. Motivate the vote for conservative politicians this November.

        The Democrat Party has always been the party of racism.
        *Prior to the War Between The States, it was the Party Of Slavery.
        *After the War between The States, it was the Party Of KKK + Jim Crow + Segregation
        *After the Republican’s Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Democrats masterminded the Switcheroo and became the Party Of Eugenics (genocide against black people) & Economic Slavery, stealing the credit for the Civil Rights Act from the Republican Party.

        1. avatar Delta795 says:

          “Republican’s [sic] Civil Rights Act of 1964”???????

          Republicans? Like Lyndon Johnson?

          The racist Dixiecrats who were frothing at the mouth over the idea of having to put Jim Crow to rest mostly crossed the aisle and became Republicans. Strom Thurmond was the most obvious example of this (due to his record 24-hour solo filibuster against the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and his participation in the two month filibuster against the Civil Rights Act of 1964) but he was far from the only one. Nixon’s Southern Strategy was based on bringing the rest of the racist southern Democrats into the Republican fold, in terms of voting, if not into the party itself.

        2. avatar burley says:

          LBJ was a democrat. The rest of your statement here is just so much blatant historical revisionism.

        3. avatar BlueLightning says:

          The “Southern Strategy” is a left wing myth, that they like to attribute to their old bogeyman Nixon. Stop lying, if you want to do that CNN will probably hire you. Maybe you can shine Brian Stelter’s shoes.

        “Some people have been waaaay too quiet for waaaay too long.”…

        Perhaps, but I’d rather let the election cycle complete itself first and try to manage this in the American manner rather than regress to the common banana republic or communist method of “solving problems”. Much of what we face, right or wrong, is rooted in lazy Americans taking their own vote for granted and wanting someone else to fix things.

        Some of us should get out in the public and try to convince people not in the choir rather than beating our chests here in the easy, safe place. Of course, we’d need to have some facts and figures in order to do this affectively, and might need to learn how to speak in a manner that doesn’t either offend the masses or scare the hell out of them before one ever gets to the actual message.

    5. avatar B. Zerker says:

      It’s a WARNING, Capt. Higgins spelled out the possible consequences of invading his space loud and clear. BRAVO, someone willing to say (and probably do) what we’d all like to! These words might just keep one or more of those protesting malcontents from losing their lives or serious injury. I’m almost sure that he doesn’t really wanna hurt anyone, thus the reason for the warning. A person wanting to kill/maim others would not have issued one. Would you or anyone wanna actually find out if this is simply a hollow threat? I think not. I see this post as public service with the intent of keeping people from harm and disagree with FB’s decision to remove it. If anyone is killed or injured because of its removal (those that didn’t get the message), it will, in part, be FB’s fault because of their failure in getting the message out.

    6. avatar Ansel Hazen says:

      Yes indeed. The ones who even their best friends and wife have no idea how many guns they own. They learned to reload years ago and are sitting on a stockpile of ammunition and components so big they don’t give a shit about the current shortage.

      And when they say they are going to the gravel pit to shoot with some buddies once in awhile on the weekend they really went to train with a local militia.

      1. avatar MDH says:

        Dealing with a Mob, 12 Ga makes more sense than just about anything else. Assuming the attack is coming from an advancing horde with the stated intention of murdering you, a fast cycling 12 ga. can deliver up to 90, 8.3 mm projectiles to the intended target area in 1.5 – 2 seconds. From a distance of 25 – 30 yards, pattern from a single 9 pellet 00′ buck shell is going to be about the size of a human torso. From 40 yards, figure about a yard or so in diameter, so figure 2 to three individual targets with an average of 3 – 4.5, 8.3mm projectiles with each round.

    7. avatar 9x39 says:

      My guess, .44 mag, or more likely shotgun. 1450 isn’t fast, except in the pistol. Hate to tell him, but I’ve got cases stacked deep in 1600 fps.

      Considering that Southern Louisiana and New Orleans were pirate hangouts 300 years ago, and New Orleans has been continuously inhabited by criminals ever since, 200 dead people in a bayou isn’t a lot.

        “Former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin departed the governor’s mansion three days ago, but the reverberations of some of his final actions are still being felt across the state.

        Bevin, a Republican who narrowly lost a bid for a second term last month, issued pardons to hundreds of people, including convicted rapists, murderers and drug offenders.

        In one case, Bevin pardoned a man convicted of homicide. That man’s family raised more than $20,000 at a political fundraiser to help Bevin pay off a debt owed from his 2015 gubernatorial campaign.

        In all, the former governor signed off on 428 pardons and commutations since his loss to Democrat Andy Beshear, according to The Courier-Journal. The paper notes, “The beneficiaries include one offender convicted of raping a child, another who hired a hit man to kill his business partner and a third who killed his parents.”

    3. avatar rt66paul says:

      Yes, this is what was stated. “Recognize the threat”, means more than they are peacefully protesting. Protesting with loaded firearms may not be the smartest choice, but start aiming, putting your finger on the trigger and/or firing off a round, it is on. You done started it and hopefully the good people will stop those actions. Promising to protect you and yours is not a threat, it is putting them on notice to behave.

      perfectly legal.

      +1 this ^ (original comment). Be armed all you want. Organize and protest and rally all you want. The Constitution protects this.

      Just don’t harm anyone, or threaten anyone (i.e. point your weapon at anyone who is not a direct and immediate threat). Do not damage property, or steal, or attack anyone.

    For an LEO, sworn to uphold the Constitution, to advocate for this lawless behavior which directly contradicts the authority of the United States Constitution, is a betrayal of trust and an abuse of power under color of law.

    It’s unfortunate that his message only makes the point of those who protest excessive police force, he has revealed himself to be a member of the law-enforcement community who believes his feelings are more important than the constitution.

    And frankly, his bluster sounds as if he’s hiding his cowardice. Police officers need less Rambo and more Gary Cooper, less hulk hogan and more Jimmy Stewart.

    And they need to stop being cowards, Kenosha is an excellent example.

    The fact is, no matter how frightened you are, you can’t shoot people in the back. You must wait until they turn around with a weapon in their hand and present a credible threat, or else you’ve just murdered a citizen.

You might try reading Miner’s posts with a bit more attention to see what he’s trying to do. JWM is one of the good guys, don’t go off half cocked without taking the time to figure out who is who, and what is what around here. I don’t see where he said anything of the sort.

          As it happens, I agree with your position on Higgin’s threatening the law abiding citizens. He’s a tyrant, plain & simple. The founders are explicitly clear on how they should be dealt with.

        2. avatar jwm says:

          When did I say anything about shooting people in the back? Read his first paragraph. Under that he thinks self defense is not allowed.

          As for baby rapers. 1 of the guys that tried to kill Kyle was a convicted pedo. All 3 had felony convictions. The 3 that were shot.

          miner wants Kyle in prison and he is a well known supporter of antifa. All of whom are brown shirts.

          “he is a well known supporter of antifa.”

          Well, there’s a bold statement with zero basis in fact and no evidence to support your assertion.

          And you know, the information contained in a post should be judged on its own merit, not derided simply because you don’t like the person who posted the data.

          Again, what part of my post is factually inaccurate?

          To have three police officers there, within touching distance of this gentleman, and to shoot him seven times in the back is an act of cowardice. Or an execution.

    As the Democrats ramp-up to make a new hoax-scandal out of the Election in November and mostly violent protests continue and, if ANTIFA/BLM’s promise to “Occupy the White House on Sept 17” comes about, probably a lot more people will be saying this out loud.

    Many people might be wondering why President Trump does not invoke the “Insurrection Act” and deploy Federal Troops. I found this article that explains it very clearly:

    https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2020/09/03/why-trump-doesnt-just-send-in-the-troops—p–n2575501

    Now if we could just find one as comprehensive about organizing local self defense Militia.If you’re Middle Class and a Patriot, you’re gonna need to when the Dems FUBAR the November Election no matter who we think got elected on Election Night. It would probably be best to get organized before the Election.

    Had someone with this thug’s attitude been at the capitol in Virginia or Michigan during one of the armed protests, would they have started gunning down protesters just because they felt threatened by the scary people with guns?

    If anyone condones this idiot’s ramblings, I feel sorry for you. He sounds like a fake tough guy who is giving fodder to the anti-gun establishment.

    Standard rules of engagement are that you aren’t in danger until a weapon is pointed at you. However, he said if you’re armed around him, he’ll shoot you. So in other words, he’s armed and it’s okay but it’s not okay for you to be armed. He’s the last moron I want representing me with hypocritical thought like that.

    We’ve seen one on one incidents.

    We’ve yet to see a mass activity with 20 or more participants. That’s going to be interesting to see what LE does.

    If antifa tries to flee and retreat will they be followed? If antifa wins are they going to claim territory?

    This won’t go well at all.

      2015 motorcycle gang shooting in 2015 seemed to go well for the police, not so well for the bikers. At least as far as the shooting was concerned. Didn’t go well for the police legally, as I don’t think they ever got a single conviction of the supposed gangsters.

    I respect where Miner49er is coming from and he’s right – but this is where we are also losing.

    Alinsky says “Use their rules against them”. This means, they know that we, as a people, respect law and order and adhere to the rules and the constitution. Guess what? THEY aren’t. They know we tie our own hands and sit back and go “But the constitution and laws say we can do this and can’t do that. They have no constitution or laws.

    They aren’t playing by any rules and they are tearing this country apart and everyone is sitting back hoping that it will calm down (it’s not going to) or the police will get ahold of the situation (they aren’t) or the troops will come in (good luck). Remember, it took a mere 3% of patriots to start and win the revolution. They’re doing the same thing right now and we’re all sitting back and doing nothing.

    So don’t act confused and bewildered when the government goes Socialist and ask “How did this all happen?”

      Jasper:
      You have seemed to miss the fact that the rioting leftists are being protected by Marxists that hold positions of power. If conservatives of any flavor caused wanton destruction, they would be tossed in the clink so fast that their heads would spin. Notice that the leftists that are arrested get released so fast that it makes your head spin.
      I have to agree with others that possessing a firearm is not a crime until until it is pointed at a person who is not a threat. A blanket statement about protesters (who are peaceful) that are armed should be shoot is just throwing gasoline on the fire.

    Here is a video of the latest victim of stupidity not racism from DC. Obviously, practicing safe distancing as well as proper firearm safety. All though a shame, parents, educators and the community have failed to instill an understanding In the youth, choices have consequences, and the bill will come due, here is a prime example of that failure. Now Bowser is seeing the monster she fed is out of control, its kind of like playing with fire what these demonrat politicians have been doing, and now lost control of it.

      How sad that people, on here, are criticizing a politician for being vocal pro 2A and wanting these terrorist put where they belong. Such descriptions as “he’s not helping”. The FUDD mentality is a worse disease than communism.

      1. avatar burley says:

        You said “…a politician for being vocal pro 2A…”
        That is unequivocally NOT what this asshat is saying.
        He literally STATED flatly, that if you are ARMED in HIS territory
        …let’s break that down: here’s a list of behaviors he did NOT include:
        1. rioting
        2. burning
        3. assaulting
        4. looting
        He simply said assemble while armed. Meaning, this guy is NOT pro Constitutional rights. Please read carefully. This dude made a public threat to execute american citizens simply for exercizing Amendments 1 and 2 in “HIS” town. We are either FOR liberty or we are NOT. Pick one…

  28. avatar Hannibal says:

    What a stupid post. He better hope he doesn’t actually ever have to shoot anyone, because guess what is going into evidence?

    We talked about this on TTAG back then. But I can’t find the original TTAG link. This prevents me from checking to see who is a hypocrite. I do recall all of the “freedom of speech freaks” supporting the KKK marching thru blacks neighborhoods while carrying guns. Or the American national socialists marching in skokie ILL. All supported by the ACLU.

    It all depends on Who’s ox is gored?
    You can protest in someone else’s neighborhood. But “not in mine”.

    The level of anti-liberty screed on this thread is disgusting.
    How many of you are simply going to tolerate this cop/politician literally threatening to execute AMERICAN CITIZENS if the act like Americans. Read it again, without the emotion of having just watced Portland on fire for another night and imagine that if the sheriff in the county where portland is had shown a picture of a different shade of militia and said the same thing. You’d be calling for his head.

    1. avatar LJPII says:

      You should read it again. He is saying that if you are threatening public safety, he will take you out. Nothing wrong with that statement.

      1. avatar burley says:

        He said that MERELY being assembled and armed(the implication here is plainly that armed and assembled can ONLY be interpreted as a threat to public safety) was enough for him to execute. YOU read it again.
