Sheriff's Patriotic Sign For Town Visitors Goes Viral (Photos)

With people becoming more and more sensitive these days, you might find it refreshing to know there is a place you can go. One town in Georgia has decided that it just doesn't care what people think anymore.

Harris County Georgia is greeting people with a new sign. "Welcome to Harris County,” it reads, which is the kind of message most visitors and residents would expect.

Underneath the welcome, there is a friendly 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!”

Sheriff Mike Jolley is the one who put the 'clause' on the bottom of the town greeting sign. Jolley is tired of seeing people with traditional views marginalized. He read about another town that put up a similar sign, and decided it was a great idea.

“It’s time for the silent majority to stand up for our beliefs and not be ashamed,” said Jolley.

He paid for the sign personally rather than using public funding so that no one could object. It's unclear if Jolley has any jurisdiction or legal right to add to the county welcome sign, but no one is questioning him. In fact, Jolley has gotten a lot of positive feedback and has found a lot of like-minded locals.

“I love it the PC police will go nuts and the liberals will trip over their tongue,” Doug Steltenpohl said.

Not everyone agrees. Rick Allen says the Sheriff 'obviously doesn't get it.'

“The phrase ‘Merry Christmas’ doesn’t OFFEND anyone, but it simply doesn’t respect others who celebrate the time of year in a different way. He shows no respect for the diversity of America. There’s nothing wrong with Happy Holidays, either. It’s a made-up non-issue," Allen said.
