  • SEDITION CAUCUS: Hice voted against certifying the 2020 vote count in GA, PA, and AZ based on false accusations of voter fraud. He also declared “this is our 1776 moment" hours before the Jan. 6th insurrection, and was 1 of 21 Republicans who voted against giving medals to the officers who defended the Capitol. [1][2]

  • Hice believes the 2nd Amendment allows people to own any weapon that the government wields, including missiles, tanks, and possibly nuclear weapons. [1]

  • Hice does not believe in the separation of church and state or evolution, and he doesn't think that Muslim's deserve 1st Amendment protections. [1][2]

  • Hice has asserted that supporters of abortion rights are worse than Hitler, and compared homosexuality to incest, pedophilia, and bestiality. [1][2][3]

  • Hice attempted to overthrow the 2020 election by voting against the certification of Biden's win in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Arizona. He was one of 126 Republican members of Congress who urged the Supreme Court to stop several key states from certifying Biden’s victory. [1] Also, throughout Hice's race to become Georgia's Secretary of State, he has continually spread misinformation about the 2020 election, saying there were “cracks in the integrity of our elections, which I wholeheartedly believe individuals took advantage of in 2020.” [2][3][4]

  • On Jan. 4, Rep. Hice tweeted that “fraudulent elections and liberty cannot co-exist! If fraud is tolerated, tyranny will ensue! We cannot afford to be idle. These are the moments that count. We must eradicate election fraud and prosecute the guilty. OBJECT to the electoral certification in Congress on Jan 6!” Two days later, the Capitol was infiltrated by a mob hoping to overturn the results of the 2020 election. In a now-deleted Instagram post hours before the assault on the Capitol, Hice declared, “This is our 1776 moment.” Hice later refused to hold Trump accountable for his role inciting the attack, calling impeachment a "sham" and voting against creating an independent commission to investigate the Jan. 6th attack. [1][2][3][4][5] Also, Hice voted with only 21 other Republicans against a resolution to give the Congressional Gold Medal to police officers who defended the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6th. [5][6]

  • According to Congressman Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), while inside the Capitol during the Jan. 6th insurrection, Hice "took apart a hand sanitizer station to make into a club." [1]

  • Hice has said that Democrats “spent 4 years refusing to acknowledge Trump’s 2016 victory.” This was rated FALSE on Politifact. [1]

  • Hice has said, "A forensics examination of a Ware County, Ga., Dominion Voting Systems machine found votes were switched from Donald Trump to Joe Biden." This was rated FALSE on Politifact. [1]

  • In a now-deleted tweet, Hice said, "The CIA briefed@BarackObama that the Russians had uncovered a plan by @HillaryClinton in 2016 to create what became the "Russia collusion" hoax. The FBI knew it, too... And *still* launched a clearly bogus investigation into @realDonaldTrump's campaign. We need accountability!" [1]

  • Hice told Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow in 2020 that the Democrats are trying to “steal the upcoming election” through the postal service by requiring universal mail-in voting. [1]

  • Hice believes the Muslim Brotherhood is secretly infiltrating the United States in a plot to impose Sharia law on the entire country, a conspiracy theory he shares with Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX). Hice has also alleged that there are “200 Islamic organizations in the United States that answer directly to the Muslim Brotherhood,” which along with “secularism” amount to “the number one threat” to “our worldview”. But he couldn’t name any of the people he was afraid were taking over America, because, as the Newnan Times-Herald reported, “he usually can’t pronounce Muslim names anyway, he said.” [1][2][3]

  • In his book, Hice writes that “[a]lthough Islam has a religious component, it is much more than a simple religious ideology. It is a complete geo-political structure, and as such, does not deserve First Amendment protection.” He also writes, "Islam is Incompatible with America's Foundation: Our Founding Fathers gave us a nation firmly established upon Judeo-Christian principles. This condition alone describes the major problem with any discussion of Islam and the American way of life. In fact, the system of government the Founders designed would not succeed in any other environment than Christian." [1][2][3]

  • In 2011 Hice said, "Most people think Islam is a religion, it's not. It's a totalitarian way of life with a religious component... It’s a movement to take over the world by force. A global caliphate is the objective." [1][2]

  • In Hice's book "It's Now or Never: A Call to Reclaim America", Hice wrote, "[A]lthough terror is a real threat and must be taken seriously, the worst plan is the Muslim Brotherhood’s attempt to take over America! Don't think that it can't happen. Europe once considered itself impervious to Islam. Today we are being told that Europe will be 20 percent Islamic by mid century because they were ignorant to the problem until it was too late. The United States had better wake up to the fact that this threat is real!" [1]

  • In a November, 2013, radio program, Hice reacted to laws banning so-called “conversion therapy” for minors by lamenting that by banning harmful “ex-gay” therapy, “we are enslaving and entrapping potentially hundreds of thousands of individuals in a lifestyle that frankly they are not.” He went on to compare being gay to alcoholism, drug addiction, “tendencies to lie” and “tendencies to be violent.” [1][2] Hice has also said, "homosexuals have the right to be married" just not "to one another," and asked, "To say that a person is born gay, if we are going to go down that path, then what is going to stop us from saying that a person is just born violent, and so we're going to give them a pass and protect them from having any intervention therapy preventing that violence?" [3]

  • Hice claims that Christians who speak out against the evils of homosexuality are persecuted—and as a result of gay manipulation, “the nation’s entire system of justice is being destroyed.” [1] In an August, 2013, radio program, Hice lamented that “you can’t even speak against a person who is a cross-dresser or a man who wants to believe himself to be a woman” without being convicted of a “hate crime.” Hice has also denied that legal discrimination towards gay people exists. [2][3][4]

  • In his book, Hice writes, "The concept of 'love' is not the issue when it comes to marriage! People love all kinds of other people and things, but that does not grant permission for marriage. It is illegal to marry a child or a sibling. It is illegal to marry a pet, which many people love dearly." Hice alleges that the gay community has a secret plot to recruit and sodomize children, claims homosexuality causes shorter life spans and depression, and he insists same-sex couples cannot raise healthy children. Hice also writes, "Some ask the question, 'How does same-sex 'marriage' threaten your  marriage?' The answer is similar to asking, 'How does a trashy neighborhood affect you?' It might not affect you at all on a personal level. But, we are not talking about 'a' same-sex marriage. We are talking about an effort to redefine marriage, and that would have drastic results and irreversible consequences!" In response to a satirical article by gay writer Michael Swift that poked fun at the idea of a "gay agenda", Hice wrote, "These shocking words by Michael Swift have been considered part of the 'gay manifesto' by many, and reveal the radical agenda that is currently threatening our nation...One need not look very far to discover the overall agenda of militant homosexuality, and its attempt to permanently change American society." However, Hice did not mention that Swift's piece was clearly satirical. [1][2]

  • Hice weighed in on a 2004 Athens Banner-Herald story on an increase in women holding political office in Georgia, saying that he didn’t “see a problem” with a woman entering politics as long as she’s “within the authority of her husband.” [1]

  • Regarding abortion, Hice wrote in his book: "How many times have we denounced the murderous acts of people like Hitler? Most certainly, his actions and similar ones by other political leaders should be vehemently condemned! Yet, we so easily overlook the genocide that has been committed within our own country. Our murderous dealings are much worse than Hitler's six million Jews or Mussolini's three hundred thousand. The genocide in America is inexcusable! It is worse than genocide. We are guilty of eugenics!" [1][2]

  • After the Sandy Hook massacre, Hice blamed the end of government-sponsored prayer in schools: “We have tragedies, horrifying tragedies such as this, happening in America today with much greater frequency because God is largely removed from our culture…we have been kicking God out of the schools, and we have been kicking God out of the public square.” [1][2][3]

  • Hice made his name in Georgia as the head of Ten Commandments-Georgia, whose goal is to display copies of the Ten Commandments at public buildings throughout the state. At a November, 2003, rally for a bill drafted by Herb Titus and Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore that would have stripped federal courts of the ability to decide many church-state separation cases, Hice declared: "We are no longer going to tolerate the continual assault on our God, our faith and our freedom by … these judges of tyranny... We need to send a message — we are sick and tired of our freedoms being hijacked by judicial terrorists.” [1] Hice convinced cash-strapped Barrow County to enter into a lengthy legal battle and promised to reimburse the county for all expenses. But when the county lost the case and was forced to cover the expenses of the winning side (the ACLU), Hice backed out, leaving the local government with a $150,000 tab. In 2005, when the Athens Banner-Herald’s editorial board blasted Hice for sticking the county with legal fees, Hice accused the ACLU of being an “anti-religious, anti-moral and utterly anti-American” group that perpetrated an act of “moral terrorism” by suing over his Ten Commandments display. [2][3][4]

  • Hice, along with 11 other Republicans, signed a joint letter in 2018 to Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling for the criminal prosecution of Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and a variety of other government and FBI officials. [1][2]

  • In his book, Hice also offers an extreme interpretation of the Constitution, claiming states can nullify federal laws and take up arms against the federal government if they consider a federal law unjust. “The ‘Whiskey Rebellion’ of 1794 showed that civil disobedience and the refusal of some state officials to enforce federal law is effective,” he wrote. “As a result, the ‘Whiskey Tax’ was nullified and the following elected cycle led to a repeal of the unpopular tax.”

  • Hice wrote in his book, “In my opinion, the ‘C’ in Obama’s slogan should have been the hammer and sickle, the emblem of socialism, because that is the type of ‘change’ he implemented.” [1]

  • Hice devoted a segment of his radio program to advising listeners to “take notice” and “have your antennas up” about John Hagee’s prediction that recent “blood moons” signal impending “world-changing events.” [1][2][3]

  • In 2021, Hice alleged that cartels "control every square inch of the [Mexican] border." Hice has also suggested in the past that people may need to take up arms in response to “a government that refuses to secure our borders,” adding, "that is the reason we have a Second Amendment." [1][2]

  • In 2012, Hice said that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) really about "forcing liberalism upon businesses and non-profits. It is an attempt to force the American workplace to accept their ways." [1]

  • In his book, Hice alleges that the U.S. Constitution had supernatural origins: "Our forefathers understood the value of America's Constitution and were fully aware of its Divine and miraculous origin." [1]

  • In a 2003 interview with the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Hice claimed that America must follow God’s law or slide down a slippery slope to catastrophe, adding that, without “Judeo-Christian” principles in government, “people end up killing each other." [1]
