You may not know Sid Miller’s name but you’ve almost certainly heard rumors about one of the pieces of legislation he’s authored. Have you ever heard of the law that supposedly forces women to listen to the heartbeat of their unborn fetuses before their allowed to have an abortion. It sounds so bizarre many people assume that it’s just an urban legend.
But thanks to the ‘TransVaginal UltraSound Law” passed in 2011 women are actually forced to do that. And that bill was written by Sid Miller. Since then he hasn’t been in the national news much. But he’s been trying to change all that by inciting racial and sexist hatred on social media. His most recent work: calling Hillary Clinton the C-word on Twitter:
He claims that the offensive language wound up in his tweet because his staffers failed to proof read the tweet thoroughly. You know, because Clinton and Cunt both start with a ‘C;’ so I see how easy of a slip that is. But in all likelihood he knew exactly what he was doing. This is not the first time that Sid Miller has offended the masses with his social media accounts:
Miller’s comment – this time from Facebook about a year ago – compares Syrian refugees to rattlesnakes. He’s also made a number of other ‘colorful’ remarks about Muslims and various other politicians. So it’s not hard to believe that perhaps he was hoping that only those of his followers who were equally cowboy-hated and sexist would catch the C-word in his tweet.
It get’s even better. Immediately after the incident, when people were just beginning to get upset about his language he posted that his account had been hacked and claimed that the comment was only a retweet and not something he authored himself. Neither of those things turned out to be true. Fortunately we were able to find a copy of this desperate ‘It wasn’t me’ tweet even though he deleted it within minutes:
I guess he figured that simply claiming that he retweeted something and that his staff didn’t proof read it for him ultimately sounded like a more believable excuse. Again, this isn’t a retweet. But those are the sorts of details that can get lost in the main stream media. Apparently, Miller finally got the reaction he’s been looking for on social media.
