Harris Miller Cries about Flyer

The flyer I posted in a prior blog created what I call a fake controversy in Virginia politics. Mind you, I did not create the flyer. Miller campaign staff claim that the flyer is anti-Semitic because of the "hooked nose", references to him as the anti-Christ of outsourcing, and because he has money hanging out of his pockets.

I believe that each point made by the campaign is utter nonsense.

First, the cartoonist who drew the original graphics TRACED a picture of Harris Miller - so if he has a hooked nose of course the final result will have a hooked nose. I did research, and this is in fact a stereotype (I was not aware of this stereotypes so research was required). However given that the image was traced I don't think that was the cartoonists intent.

Second, an Information Week article referenced many of OUR ACTIVISTS in regards to the characterization of Miller being the "anti-Christ of outsourcing". I have never studied pictures of Harris Miller and given his surname of "Miller" which is of English origins (according to geneology.com) we would have no reason to think Harris Miller was Jewish. Even if he were, it has no impact regarding our views of him. We refer to him as the "Anti-Christ of Outsourcing" because he is a terrible human being with a stated goal of moving American jobs overseas. We don't hate him because of his ethnicity or religion, but because he is an ass.

Third, Harris Miller is rich. He has corporate money coming in from the largest tech companies across America. As president of the ITAA he made tons of money lobbying for the outsourcing of American jobs. He is also self-funding his campaign by nearly $1,000,000. Simply put, he has sold out American workers to make a quick buck.

The bottom line is that Harris Miller is at the bottom of the barrell when it comes to judging a person's character. His actions against American IT workers are simply not forgiveable. And the fact that he is running as a Democrat of all things is laughable.

Miller played the race card, and lost.

According to an AP article:

The flier, drawn in comic-book cartoon style, depicts Miller with a grotesquely hooked nose and cash overflowing from his suit pockets as he orders an underling to find ways to export U.S. jobs overseas. The flier refers to Miller as the "anti-Christ of outsourcing.''

Miller called it "despicable.'' "One of the things I hoped we would keep out of this campaign, because it has nothing to do with the campaign, is my religion and my background,'' Miller said.

Webb said the flier was not intended to disparage Miller's religion or heritage and apologized if it was perceived that way.

"I would not in any way look at that and say that it was anti-Semitic. Harris is the one who's played the race card in this campaign by distorting my views on affirmative action,'' said Webb, a Republican-turned-Democrat and best-selling author.


Because Miller is so offended by the comic, I have decided to edit it - removing things he may find offensive to his religion.

I will not take out the money coming from his pockets because that is factually true. I am using his actual image in each slide from actual Harris Miller footage - notice the final image. Harris likes to point out that he is a Democrat every chance he gets - maybe he is on to something. Or is he just an ass?
