A christian Wisconsin Dairy Queen owner has put social justice warriors on notice with a “politically incorrect” trigger warning sign.
“This restaurant is politically incorrect,” the sign reads. “We have been known to say ‘Merry Christmas, Happy Easter (and) God Bless America.”
“We salute and honor the flag, give thanks to our troops, police officers and firefighters, give thanks for the USA and give free sundaes to veterans on veterans day.”
And it concludes with a warning for the perennially offended crowd.
“If this offends you, you are welcome to contact the owner at [email protected] and arrange a ‘snowflake safe space’ a minimum 24 hours in advance.”
The words “In God We Trust” appear at the bottom of the sign.

Store owner Kevin Scheunemann defended the sign in an interview with CBS 58.
“I felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country,” he said. “It just seems that those kinds of values and principles are becoming controversial in society.”
The sign has been in the store for four years, since a customer complained that it played Christian music.
It became a topic of debate again recently when another customer shared the image on the Dairy Queen Facebook page and said “I find this extremely offensive. Please speak with the franchise owner.”
The comment sparked thousands of others to comment, many in support of the owner, according to NBC Chicago.
Those comments continued on Twitter.
My only regret is that I am to far away to patronize this DQ. I would be there every day.

The First Amendment applies to everyone in this country, not just the easily offended.

This is the reason why America is so great! You can have an opinion or belief and stand by it! God Bless and Amen!
