Texas Official is Tired of Hearing 'Happy Holidays'

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller wrote a Facebook post on Wednesday stating “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."

Underneath his caption was a photo of a cowboy riding a bull in front of a sign that read: “We Will Never Take Christ Out Of Christmas.”

By Thursday morning, the post had been liked over 7,000 times. Yet, hundreds of people still responded to Miller's post by wishing him Happy Holidays, including a GIF from the Texas Democratic Party.

The Houston Chronicle noted that Miller had made other controversial remarks on Facebook including one post where he called for nuking the “Muslim world.”

In another post, he compared Syrian refugees to “rattlesnakes.”
