Hitler-Quoting congresswoman's hubby parked truck at Capitol Jan. 6




Husband of Hitler-quoting GOP congresswoman parked his militia-stickered truck outside Capitol Jan. 6

Illinois state Rep. Chris Miller (R), the husband of freshman U.S. Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.), acknowledged Thursday that his pickup truck was parked in a restricted area outside the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot, but he said the "Three Percenter" militia sticker on the back window doesn't mean anything.

"Army friend gave me decal," Miller told The Daily Beast in an email late Thursday. "Thought it was a cool decal. Took it off because of negative pub." He said he "never was member" of the militia and "didn't know anything about 3% till fake news started this fake story and read about them." Online sleuths had linked him to the truck visible in footage from a CBS News report, earlier Thursday.

The Three Percenters, founded in 2008, are a "radical militia group" implicated in leading the Jan. 6 siege along with the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, and other far-right extremist groups, the FBI said in an affidavit filed in the case against alleged rioter Robert Gieswein. Their name comes from the apocryphal claim that only 3 percent of U.S. colonists fought in the Revolutionary War, and they fashion themselves as the same kind of tyranny-stomping "patriots."

Miller's wife, Mary Miller, is most famous for favorably quoting Nazi leader Adolf Hitler at a "Moms for America" rally outside the Capitol on Jan. 5. "Hitler was right on one thing: whoever has the youth has the future," she told the rally, apologizing later when video of her comments went viral but insisting that "some are trying to intentionally twist my words to mean something antithetical to my beliefs."

Democracy will not survive if America continues to ignore the NAZI elephant in the room.

3. For certain.

FBI should investigate his — and many other Republican politicians’ ties to Jan. 6 insurrection.

2. He's not a very good liar

He knew exactly what 3% meant. He thinks everyone else is as ignorant as he is.

5. No really, he thought it was pretty. That's why he has a 'my little pony' riding on the seat ...

6. How did his truck get government plates?

Shouldn't a truck with government plates be used only for official purposes?

7. Good eye. He's an Illinois state rep...

Wife is U.S. congresswoman.

Maybe they share the truck in their work to advance fascism, like serving as an official rallying point on Jan. 6. The guy is a vet, so his friends still in uniform need to be vetted for their actions.

11. Only if it is a government truck.

Lots of states issue special plates to the elected. Helps them get parking and lets the cop know the car they stopped may have one of the “privileged” inside.

I believe that Members of the US Congress get plates issued by the State Department, just like they do for foreign diplomats.

9. He claims it was an honest mistake.

3 percent is the low alcohol variety of beer he likes to drink.

12. Story keeps changing, though.

From Chicago Sun-Times:

“I have never been a member of the 3 percenters. My son received the sticker that was on my truck from a family friend who said that it represented patriotism and love of country,” Miller said in a statement. “I have since removed the sticker.”

13. Intelligence, like integrity, is no part of Trumpism.



Guy raises Angus cattle, so cows seem to be a pattern.

Steve King spoke at KKK fest with Matt Gosar GOP who makes cows sound brilliant.

14. Chris Miller stood with Three Percenters before.

The Three Percenters appear to be domestic terrorists.



Illinois Republican's husband denies ties to militia group despite truck decal

BY MARINA PITOFSKY
The Hill - 02/28/21

EXCERPT...

Miller has said that he did not know what the logo meant and denied being involved with the group. In a statement to the Daily Beast, which first reported on a photo of Miller’s truck parked at the Capitol, the Republican state lawmaker said he was displaying a “cool” sticker given to him by an “Army friend.”

He later said in a statement from his office that the sticker was given to his son by a family friend who said that it was representative of “patriotism and love of country,” the Washington Post reported.

But, in a video posted to his Facebook page last year, the Three Percenters logo can be seen on a banner behind Miller at a rally in Springfield, Ill., ABC News noted. An Illinois group that helped organize the rally uses a logo featuring imagery from the Three Percenters, according to the outlet.

The Three Percenters is an anti-government militia group named after the inaccurate claim that only three percent of American colonists fought against the British during the revolutionary war.

From the ABC News story mentioned above...



But this isn't the first time he has helped promote the Three Percenters. In videos posted online, including one video posted to his own Facebook page, he stood in front of a Three Percenters banner -- and a QAnon sign -- last year as he railed against Democrats.

"We can be thankful [that] neither 'Crooked Hillary' or 'Creepy, Sleepy Joe' will ever be the president of the United States," he said in the video, which was shot at a May 2020 rally in Springfield, Illinois, where he and many others protested state measures to curb the COVID-19 pandemic. "We can be thankful … that we have a great American patriot in the White House that is determined to make America great again."

An Illinois-based group that helped organize the rally uses a logo that features "Three Percenters" imagery. The group promised followers ahead of the rally that "some big speakers" would be participating.

In another video of his remarks posted online, Chris Miller declared, "We have identified our domestic enemies as Nancy Pelosi."

Miller appears to be another stupid GQP greedhead, but he’s nastier. Like zip cuff Democratic leaders and lead them off nasty. And his nasty wife is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
