As it turns out, you just cannot keep Texans away from good BBQ.
On Monday, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX-20) created a firestorm among Republicans after doxxing private citizens in his Congressional district who made the maximum donation to President Trump’s reelection campaign.
Castro then made the results public on his Twitter feed, which instantly made the people on the list targets for harassment and violence. In spite of the intense wave of criticism he has received, Castro, who is the chairman of his brother Julián Castro‘s presidential campaign, tried to justify his actions by saying in so many words that the people who are “funding white supremacy” need to be outed.
The information included the names of the donors and their places of employment/businesses they owned. One of the Texans Castro doxxed was Balous Miller, who owns San Antonio’s Bill Miller Bar-B-Q chain.
While hypocritical concern troll leftists have vowed to boycott Miller’s restaurants, conservatives started lining up in full force to support them, including Gov. Greg Abbott. He posted these pictures to his Twitter feed Tuesday night:

Since that time, other Twitter users have posted photos of the their visits or long drive thru lines at local locations:

It looks to me like the threatened Miller BBQ boycotts, like the Chick-fil-A boycotts, have turned out to be a big ol’ bucket of FAIL.
There are more than 70 Bill Miller Bar-B-Q locations in Texas. To find one near you, click here.
