Congressman Under Fire Over Auschwitz Video — Here It Is

Jul 5, 2017  •  Post A Comment

A U.S. lawmaker has come under heavy criticism for a clip that’s being described as a “cheesy selfie video” from the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland.

CNN reports that officials at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum are among those denouncing the video from GOP Congressman Clay Higgins of Louisiana. Higgins serves on the House homeland security committee.

The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial’s official Twitter account posted a message in response to Higgins’ video saying: “Everyone has the right to personal reflections. However, inside a former gas chamber, there should be mournful silence. It’s not a stage.”

The account also posted a sign that appears in the former gas chamber requesting visitors to maintain silence.

The New York Post notes that “Higgins, a former cop, was apparently trying to record a message that warned of the dangers of extremism and urged support for beefing up US national security efforts.”

“With a violin solo from the flick ‘Schindler’s List’ playing in the background, the congressman recorded a five-minute tour of the infamous camp, where more than a million Jews, Poles and others were murdered by Hitler’s henchmen,” The Post reports. “In one part, he talks while standing among canisters of Zyklon B — the gas used to kill the internees.”

The Post adds: “Higgins last made headlines when he posted a message on Facebook addressed to ‘all of Christendom’ after a terror attack in London in which he said the best way to deal with a ‘radicalized Islamic suspect’ is to ‘kill them all … for the sake of all that is good and righteous.'”

Here’s Higgins’ video …


  1. What a boob. Typical republicrat activity.

  2. And yet he thinks it would be fine for Muslims to be treated just like the Jews were. “For the sake of all that is good and righteous.”
