Ag Commish pulls down Facebook share targeting Muslims
by Lauren McGaughy
A Facebook post shared on Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller's official Facebook page was removed Monday soon after the image featuring the detonation of an atomic bomb and a message suggesting "the Muslim world" should face the same fate went viral on social media.
"Japan has been at peace with the U.S. since August 9, 1945. It's time we made peace with the Muslim world," stated the original post, which features the hashtags #noislamknowpeace and #COMETAKE and what appears to be a photograph of the 1957 nuclear bomb tests in Nevada.
The photograph and message originally were posted on a Facebook page called "The Patriot's IV Drip 2." The page's one line description says, "We do not agree with Obama and his political views. We ban trolls." The page has posted memes including one of a baby with a raised fist proclaiming, "Hang in there whitey!" and another of women garbed in burkas swimming at the beach that says, "Please don't throw trash into our oceans."
