Come, let us reason together, as LBJ used to say. It will take you a few moments to parse through this ridiculous social media post by the Louisiana congressman representing the third congressional district. This is so bonkers that I’m seriously wondering if Clay Higgins might have an issue with blackout drinking. This is something that people do when in that condition and sorely rue the following day.
I think that, in any event, a public apology is going to have to be forthcoming from Higgins, or this is surely something that could be censured by the House. This is straight from Nutville.
There really is no bottom. Holy hell.

“OG” is original gangsta and that’s Trump. That’s who is going to hand the “hack” judge, meaning Justice Arthur Engoron, his ass. And the person on the left of the image is the assassin from The Godfather, Busetta, who got blown away by Cuban soldiers, you may recall, when he was in the process of suffocating the Roth character with a pillow.
So this is a cultural reference to some pretty intense political violence — and completely unbecoming a member of the House of Representatives. At least in the old days, prior to 2016. I guess in the era of Trump, this is the New Abnormal. As I’ve said many many times, and expect to say many more, Donald Trump represents the Republican id. That, and he’s got his finger on the pulse of White terror of The Other. That, in a nutshell, is why he is where he is.
And Higgins comes by this naturally. Make no mistake.
Are you seeing a pattern here? Bad cops running for Congress. People who have been arrested before, running for Congress. The worst of the worst, all running as Republicans, running for Congress. I think the handwriting is on the wall and blinking neon, friends.
Oh, yes. It’s still up there. It probably won’t be for long, though.
I concur. I honestly think that Higgins will wake up to this, if somebody else doesn’t handle it first, and there’s going to be a real shitstorm over this. This isn’t remotely normal. Unless you’re a MAGA Republican in 2024. This is what the end of democracy looks like. The end of the GOP for sure.
First off, isn’t that Judge Engeron?
Secondly, if you watched the movie, that dude got murdered.
Lastly, Clay is drunk. pic.twitter.com/D2YTdO06D0

That’s how the battle is framed, the corrupt GOP, what’s left of it, and the constitutional democracy we have been living in. It’s like Thunderdome, two men enter, one man leaves. Let’s hope it’s our guy. This is not about Biden and Trump. This is much bigger.
