Texas Republican Suggests Veterans Group Should Be lynched For Denying Confederate Group Entry To Event: ‘Get A Rope’

When Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller took to Facebook over the weekend and suggested that officials running a Veteran’s Day parade in his hometown of Stephenville should be lynched for allegedly denying entry to a Confederate group.

Miller was responding to a Facebook post when he wrote: “Who told them to leave? Get a rope.”

Shortly after Miller’s comment was posted, people started to call him out for his racist slurs. This prompted Miller to claim that his comment was a “joke.” He added to his original comment, writing “Good grief people, it’s a joke,” and saying it was a reference to a Pace salsa commercial.

Burton Smith, one of the parade’s coordinators, said the Sons of Confederate Veterans were asked to take down Confederate flags in order to participate in the parade; instead, he said, the group decided to leave altogether.

“My understanding is that it would be inappropriate for the military to be involved in a parade with the Confederate flag flying,” Smith said.
