HAMILTON, Ga. (AP) - The Harris County sheriff has posted a sign outside his department that says his county is politically incorrect, and anyone who has a problem with that can leave.

Media outlets report Sheriff Mike Jolley installed the sign Tuesday in front of his Hamilton department. The sign which reads: “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 says he paid for the sign himself and wanted to give voice to what he considers to be a “silent majority.”

Jolley says he has received overwhelming support from the community and plans to install more of the signs around the county, with some residents having offered to pay for them.
