Clay Higgins

If U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, R-Lafayette, was aiming a dig at the political left with a “woke” tweet over the weekend, it failed to land. In truth, Higgins’ crew may have been covering up for a barrage of Twitter counterpunches that came in fast and furious from many angles.

Even though they claim to be the premier online dictionary, reacted by admitting they had no idea what Clay Higgins’ Tweet meant. Others, particularly millennials, echoed the uncertainty about Higgins’ meaning, including U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who tweeted that he has been on a committee with Clay Higgins for years. He said that he speaks like this every day, and they just try to do their best to understand him.

But, even if Higgins’ rhetoric fell short of Churchillian, Pearson Cross, a political scientist at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, said it would not hurt him in his next election for a fourth two-year term.

Clay Higgins has made mistakes on social media before and survived, according to Cross. That’s because, according to Cross, Higgins’ political views haven’t changed much since he first ran for office in 2016, replacing six-term Congressman Charles Boustany. Cross, on the other hand, believes Higgins supporters will be unmoved by replies from liberal news sources or liberal opponents. By late afternoon, The Acadiana Advocate had not received a response to an email sent to Higgins spokesperson Andrew David.
