GOP representative's husband responds after militia group's decal seen on truck

7 hrs ago

The husband of Rep. Mary Miller, R-Illinois, has tried to distance himself from what the FBI says is a "radical militia group" with ties to last month's Capitol siege, after his pickup truck was seen on Capitol grounds that day with a large decal promoting the group.

When news of the decal promoting the "Three Percenters" militia group surfaced this week, Miller's husband, Illinois state representative Chris Miller, told the Daily Beast he "didn't know anything about [the group] until fake news" started asking questions about the decal seen on his vehicle.

In a statement to ABC News, Chris Miller said his son received the sticker "from a family friend who said that it represented patriotism and love of country." Miller insisted he has never been a member of the group.
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."

1. I get it. People make mistakes.

I mean, who would look into it before slapping it on the back of the truck? It could just as easily have been a BLM sticker.

He's just lucky his friend didn't give him a swastika sticker because it represents loyalty and devotion.
Imagine how red his face would be then.

2. Based on the video cited in the OP,

the loyalties of the Millers are suspect.

3. There was a lot of tongue in cheek in my reply.

It's obvious where their loyalties lie.

4. Ridiculous, transparent denials that come with a wink.

They've become the MO of the party. Just say the words while whistling Dixie.

"What? This is a bank? And the bags I'm carrying are full of MONEY? I thought it was free taco day at the buffet. I'm pretty sure these bags are full of tacos, thanks. If I were robbing a bank, I'd know it. Fake news!"

5. What is the husband doing speechifying?

Which one of the couple works in Congress? Is he “helping” his wife with her job? That wasn’t a tiny sticker he put on his truck. It was a huge sticker.

He looks like a creeper.
