Season’s beatings: Texas GOP official threatens to slap next person who wishes him ‘Happy holidays’

Published

on

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller may be taking the so-called “war on Christmas” a little too literally.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the Republican official said that he would “slap” anyone who wished him “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”

“If one more person says Happy Holidays to me I just might slap them. Either tell me Merry Christmas or just don’t say anything,” Miller wrote.

The message included a photo of a cowboy riding a bull in front of a sign that read: “We Will Never Take Christ Out Of Christmas.”

The post had been liked over 7,000 times by Thursday morning.

However, hundreds of people responded to Miller’s post by wishing him Happy Holidays, including a GIF from the Texas Democratic Party.

The Houston Chronicle pointed out that Miller had a history of posting controversial remarks on Facebook. In one post, he called for nuking the “Muslim world.” In another post, he compared Syrian refugees to “rattlesnakes.”

Towleroad also noted that Miller had backed anti-gay comments made by Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson.

“Phil Robertson has every right to express his personal opinions about his Christian faith and against the homosexual lifestyle,” he insisted. “For a television network to cater to and then run scared of the radical gay community is a shame and a disgrace. It demonstrates just what the liberal-left agenda is going to do to our country – rot it from the inside out by killing off American values.”

Soledad O'Brien

Soledad O'Brien, a former CNN anchor, clashed with the wife of Trump surrogate Anthony Scaramucci over the weekend.

In a tweet on Friday, O'Brien complained that cable new networks were continuing to book the former White house communications director even though he has little of substance to add to the discussions.

"Why do you guys put this crap on tv?" O'Brien wrote after seeing an interview with Scaramucci. "Seriously it’s an insult to your viewers. And also absurd. Is there no one else in the whole world to book but this mediocre dude?"

Scaramucci's wife, Deidre, was moved to criticize O'Brien.
