Auschwitz Museum Shames GOP Congressman For Disrespectful Gas Chamber Selfie (VIDEO)

Congressman Clay Higgins was condemned by the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum decided it would be a good idea to film a video of himself inside of a gas chamber at the Nazi death camp.

“A great sense of dread comes over you in this place,” Higgins says in his disrespectful video he posted on YouTube. “Man’s inhumanity to man can be quite shocking.”

The world’s a smaller place now than it was in World War II. The United States is more accessible to terror like this, horror like this. It’s hard to walk away from the gas chambers and ovens without a very sober feeling of commitment — unwavering commitment — to make damn sure that the United States of America is protected from the evils of the world,” the  Louisiana Republican continues.

According to Higgins, Auschwitz is just proof that the United States “must be invincible.” But the the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum was not amused by his video selfies and they blasted him online for his shameful video.

“Everyone has the right to personal reflections,” read the first tweet. “However, inside a former gas chamber, there should be mournful silence. It’s not a stage.”

In a followup tweet, the museum included a picture of a plaque that hangs at the entrance to the gas chamber to remind visitors how to behave respectfully.

Apparently, Higgins never bothered to read the plaque. If he had, it might have made him realize that the inside of a gas chamber is not the place to film a propaganda video for YouTube.
