A Georgia sheriff is going viral for a “politically incorrect” warning sign he has posted for visitors in Harris County. As soon as the sheriff’s sign popped up, Parkland survivor and gun control Nazi David Hogg was likely to be furious.
In the aftermath of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, several student survivors of the shooting have become public advocates for stricter gun laws. But undoubtedly the most notorious of these underage activists is David Hogg, who hid with his peers as 19-year-old gunman Nikolas Cruz roamed the high school and fatally shot 17 people.
Hogg has seemingly made a career out of booking appearances on every mainstream news network that will have him. He has memorized all of the usual Democratic talking points when it comes to gun control, and he recites them for anyone who will listen. Meanwhile, those who disagree with him are liable to face intense scrutiny from the 17-year-old and his far-left cronies over at Soros-funded Media Matters.
With David Hogg working overtime to parlay the shooting at his high school into gun control legislation, he likely wasn’t happy to see the new sign outside of the sheriff’s office in Harris County, Georgia, which warns visitors with ill intentions that “We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries.” In other words, residents of Harris County are ready and able to defend themselves and their property with deadly force, if necessary.
Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley is going viral for his politically incorrect welcome sign. Posted outside the sheriff’s office in Harris County, Georgia the sign informs visitors, “Our citizens have concealed weapons. If you kill someone, we might kill you back. We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries. Enjoy your stay!” [Source: IJR]
Noting that the number of concealed carry permits issued in Harris County has tripled over the past few years, Sheriff Jolley explained on Fox & Friends that the sign is a way of informing visitors that many of his residents exercise their Second Amendment right. “The fact that we have one jail and so many cemeteries is just a tongue-in-cheek way of saying law enforcement can’t be everywhere all the time, so citizens have a right to protect themselves,” he explained.
According to Fox News, this isn’t the first time Sheriff Jolley has made headlines for a politically incorrect sign, either:
Jolley’s previous sign in 2015 defended the American flag and Christmas. He paid $553 for the sign out of his own pocket. The text read: “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!”
At the time, Jolley told “FOX & Friends” he was “humbled” after receiving so much support, especially in his community, where he said people made supportive yard signs and t-shirts. The politically incorrect sheriff didn’t shy away from talking about those who disagree with him, either.
“I spent 20 years in the army to give everyone the right to disagree with me or anyone else,” Jolley said. “Hopefully, if they disagree, they can voice that opinion. But if it offends them, truly offends them, maybe they’re in the wrong country.”
“I can’t see what the problem is with saying ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘in God we trust’ or ‘we salute our flag and support our troops,’” Jolley said. “When I was young we all did it. We should go back to it,” he concluded.
Sheriff Jolley’s habit of making very public politically incorrect statements led Fox & Friends to label him the “Trump before Trump.” Indeed, it seems that those who are willing to buck the PC Police in order to tell it like it is immediately gain popularity with their voter base. Perhaps the Democrats ought to think about adopting this policy before the midterms.
