These clowns have basically just said they want 10,000 Photoshopped images of themselves doing just about anything. Dummy up and take the abuse.
Is it just me or is the left interested in banning pretty much everything these days?
A Democratic state legislator in Georgia is pushing to make inappropriate use of Photoshop a crime and he was made the victim of such a prank in retaliation.
State Representative Earnest Smith was one of two co-sponsors of a bill to make it a crime if someone Photoshops a person into an obscene picture.
He pushed forward with the plan in spite it’s the obvious interference with First Amendment rights, and an internet prankster made him the latest target in response.
One of his constituents took a picture of a nude porn star and put Mr Smith’s head on top.
‘Rep. Smith needs to grow some thick skin if he’s going to be an elected official. Trust me when I say the altered photograph shown above was not the worst I could have done,’ prankster Andre Walker said on his blog where he claimed responsibility for the image.
If Smith, and co-sponsor Pam Dickerson, have their way then such an action would result in a $1,000 fine.
Their proposed law would be broken when any ‘person commits defamation when he or she causes an unknowing person wrongfully to be identified as the person in an obscene depiction’.
‘No one has a right to make fun of anyone. You have a right to speak, but no one has a right to disparage another person. It’s not a First Amendment right,’ Mr Smith told local news site Savannah Now.
Well, at least we still have the right to speak. For now.
