Texas GOP Official Shows Christmas Spirit By Threatening To Slap Anyone Who Says “Happy Holidays”
Texas Agriculture Commissioner and professional Larry Hagman impersonator Sid Miller is VERY upset a thing. So upset, that he would like to physically assault someone! What is this thing, you ask? It is people saying “Happy Holidays” to him. I know, right? It’s simply harrowing.
As a soldier in the War on Christmas, Miller posted a Facebook status announcing that he would slap the next person who wished him “Happy Holidays.” God forbid anyone assume he is Jewish, because he is definitely not, and people should be able to determine that, somehow! What? Does Sid Miller have to write “Goyim” in neon puffy paint on his ten gallon hat, along with some bedazzled crucifixes or something to get a “Merry Christmas” around here? That does not seem fair. Life is so hard.
The post currently has over 4200 shares and nearly 8,000 likes from people who similarly fear being mistaken for a Jewish or otherwise non-Christian person by retail store clerks who don’t know them and lack the psychic ability to determine their personal religious beliefs just by looking at them.
If only those of us who are not Christian, or who recognize that there are many different belief systems in this country and that it is weird to assume you know what someone’s belief system is, could understand that it is our responsibility to ensure that people like Sid Miller enjoy their holiday and never have to be reminded that people with other belief systems exist, then Sid Miller wouldn’t have to hurt anyone. Really, we’re bringing this upon ourselves.
