Miller Admits Biden May Be President
with Agenda Set on Destroying Texas
November 19, 2020
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller issued an urgent plea for campaign donor help on Thursday amid warnings on "authoritarian socialists" and a wild west analogy that conjured visions of George Floyd's killing by Minneapolis police this spring.
A former GOP state lawmaker who's one of President Donald Trump's top Texas allies, Miller explained in an email to supporters that he can't take their money after December 13 when a six-month ban on contributions during the regular legislative session takes effect.
Miller suggested that he's stocking up in the next few weeks as a result so he can be sufficiently armed when Democratic President-elect Joe Biden "potentially takes office" in January. This implies that Miller still sees some glimpse of hope for the American election being overturned in the courts or possibly by Republican legislators in swing states.
But Miller painted a troubling picture of Texas under attack by a Biden administration that's dead set on destroying the Lone Star State.
"Imagine a President Biden ordering the end of all oil and gas production on public lands in Texas, a nationwide lockdown, limits on gun rights, or a hundred other ways liberal Democrats could put their boot on our state's neck," Miller said.
"We are the last line of defense against the socialist crazies that despise us."
Miller, who's up for re-election in 2022, could face some backlash for the remark on the boot on the neck in light of his criticism of the Black Lives Movement that resurged after Floyd died from asphyxiation after having an officer's knee on his neck while several other policemen watched.
Miller had been roped in to an appearance last month at a rally that Texas GOP Chairman Allen West organized last month by the Capitol to protest Governor Greg Abbott's emergency restrictions during the coronavirus crisis. But Miller didn't mention the Republican governor in the fundraising pitch today - reserving his fire for the Marxists on the horizon instead.
But Miller only mentioned Trump once in the email without the president's first name or title. Miller said that Biden has vowed to destroy all of the economic progress that Trump has made. The farm chief as an example warned that a new war by the federal government on farmers and ranchers could be looming on the horizon as well.
