An army veteran turned sheriff in Georgia, Mike Jolley, has apparently used his own money to post up a sign below the country sign that expresses the traditional American values the town holds. The sign is going viral and of course getting backlash and controversy from certain groups.
Jolley’s sign to welcome motorists says: “Warning: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… LEAVE!”
Jolley loves the sign and plans to use his own money to put up more around the town. He put up the sign for what he says was in defense of these traditional thoughts, which are now being buried by the left.
“It’s time for the silent majority to stand up for our beliefs and not be ashamed,” Jolley said.
Responding to critics who say that he is going too far in sharing his personal beliefs, the sheriff said, “I spent 20 years in the United States Army in defense of those people who want to say they don’t support the sign. And I fought for that right to have the ability to say they don’t support it.”
Jolley said that he received many positive comments about the sign as well. He said that he hopes that the positive feedback may be a sign of a change to come.
“Maybe the silent majority isn’t going to be silent anymore,” he added.
Jolley’s sign received a number of supportive comments after the story was shared online.
