Eight Other Inappropriate Venues for Rep. Clay Higgins’ Selfie Videos

After being globally denounced for blatantly using the grounds of a former Nazi death camp to advance his political career, Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins retracted an online video he shot while visiting the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in Poland.

The Auschwitz Memorial official Twitter account responded to the five-minute selfie video — in which Higgins fails to mention Jews or the Holocaust — by posting a photo of a plaque requesting that visitors maintain respectful silence. They also tweeted, “Everyone has the right to personal reflections. However, inside a former gas chamber, there should be mournful silence. It’s not a stage.”

Well, good luck trying to convince Rep. Higgins, a former St. Landry Parish sheriff’s deputy whose entire political career is a direct result of his viral Crimestoppers video stardom, that the whole world is not a stage for recording self-serving videos. In fact, here are eight more inappropriate venues where the social media whore could shoot his next video while defying societal expectations of decency and decorum:


Yad Vashem

A Wake

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

Way of the Cross

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Trail of Tears

Preschool Naptime

National Prisoner of War Museum
