This guy is going to have his head put on tranny porn, midget porn, and every male porn star there is.

Big mistake and now he is challenging people across the country


Plus, his stupid statement which I highlighted in red.   No one has the right to make fun of someone?   Bull.


Law & Disorder / Civilization & Discontents

Georgia bill would ban photoshopping legislator’s head on porn star’s body

“No one has a right to make fun of anyone,” according to Rep. Earnest Smith.

The face, but not the body, of Rep. Earnest Smith (D-Augusta).

Infuriated by a critic who photoshopped his head onto the body of a male porn star, a Georgia legislator has proposed making such images illegal. Violators would face a $1,000 fine.

“Everyone has a right to privacy,” Rep. Earnest Smith (D-Augusta) said in an interview with FoxNews.com. “No one has a right to make fun of anyone. It’s not a First Amendment right.”

The legislation would define defamation to include cases where someone "causes an unknowing person wrongfully to be identified as the person in an obscene depiction in such a manner that a reasonable person would conclude that the image depicted was that of the person so wrongfully identified." It specifically includes "the electronic imposing of the facial image of a person onto an obscene depiction."

Andre Walker, a blogger at Georgia Unfiltered, has been taunting Smith (NSFW) with images of his face photoshopped into a variety of "obscene depictions."

“I cannot believe Rep. Earnest Smith thinks I’m insulting him by putting his head on the body of a well-built porn star,” Walker told Fox News.

Needless to say, a law making it illegal to photoshop someone's head on the body of a porn star would face long odds under the Constitution. The First Amendment guarantees the right to freedom of speech, which absolutely includes a "right to make fun of anyone."

"He’s the conductor of his own crazy train," one of Smith's fellow legislators told Fox News.
