A Georgia sheriff is gaining attention after posting a sign outside of his department Tuesday morning declaring his county “politically incorrect.”

Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley paid for the $553 sign in an effort to “stir people’s belief and patriotism,” he told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.

“WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect,” the sign states. “We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… LEAVE!”

A photo of Sheriff Jolley standing next to sign, posted to Facebook by the sign’s creator, D&S Sign Company, started making its rounds on social media on Tuesday.

The sheriff said he was tired of the silent majority becoming “more silent.”

“It’s time for the silent majority to stand up for our beliefs and not be ashamed,” he told the Ledger-Enquirer.

He said he’s received overwhelming support for the sign. Some residents have even sent him checks.

“I’m humbled by all of the support,” the sheriff said. “Surprised and humbled by it. Maybe the silent majority isn’t going to be silent anymore.”
