You will never guess what one Sheriff has done to combat political correctness
The age of political correctness is coming to an end. At least that is what the vast majority of Americans and even Europeans are hoping because the recent spat on American college and university campuses has many Americans shouting, enough is enough. People are seeing that political correctness is anti-Constitutional and anti-American.
We have heard about a number of Sheriffs across the nation standing up for Gun Rights and the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. But now we are starting to see these same lawmen (that includes women who are sheriffs as well – I’m not PC) across the nation standing up against this vocal Political Correctness garbage.
One, in particular, is causing quite a stir and he only began his “campaign” a few days ago. This Georgia county sheriff decided to put up a sign that puts Political Correctness in its place. In an effort to "stir people's belief and patriotism," Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley posted a new sign Tuesday morning outside of his department that says his county is politically incorrect, and if you have a problem with that, you can leave.
Paid for by Jolley, the sign 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!" Jolly said Tuesday he was tired of the silent majority becoming "more silent."
The sheriff paid for the sign out of his own pocket and then erected it at his county line. What the sheriff has found out is that many within his jurisdiction have similar sentiments and some have even asked how they could place similar signs on their own properties.
The sheriff did not ask for donations to help defray the cost of the sign, but he says he has gotten checks from citizens that helped pay for the sign. He has received overwhelming support for the sign that cost him $553, he said. He purchased it from D&S Sign Company on Linwood Boulevard in Columbus. Jolley said several citizens have wanted to post one on their property. Some have even sent checks. "The sign has been purchased double," he said.
Sheriff Jolley is not trying to offend anyone who does not believe as he does. In fact, the sheriff says that folks can worship whomever they wish but as for him and his house they worship Jesus Christ and he does not feel that he has to be quiet about it while others who worship other gods do not have to be silent.
In fact, Sheriff Jolley says it’s time for the silent majority to be a lot more vocal. His office has about 75 employees total and he does not interfere with the worship habits of his staff. The sheriff only wants to tell Americans they have a right to stand up for what they believe and that they have the freedom to express those beliefs.
Let’s hope this trend grows all across the nation and Christians and Jews begin to once again feel they can be out in the open about their faith and not be silent simply because someone else says they are offended.
Now if that offends you, I would suggest you do not read this.
