The importance of being Earnest. And Pam.

Posted on February 14, 2013 9:00 am

A group of six Georgia legislators have proposed a bill in the State House that would make certain fake images illegal. Like when you take the head of one person and put it on, say, a porn star? That would be a crime under the bill.

The actual wording of House Bill 39 says:

… a person commits defamation when he or she causes an unknowing person wrongfully to be identified as the person in an obscene depiction …

The bill goes on to describe what “nudity,” “obscene depiction,” and “sexual conduct” means, in case you didn’t know. It also describes all the fun/naughty parts that make nudity, obscene, and sexual actually nudity, obscene, and sexual.

The six Democrats — you knew the sponsors were all Democrats, right? — really don’t like that kind of humor. Two of them were victims of such prankery, Pam Dickerson* (who introduced a similar bill last year) and Earnest Smith*. The blog Georgia Politics Unfiltered is one of the culprits that prompted such actions. You can search that site for more images, if you want. You don’t want. Trust me.

Still, I understand that those that are victims of such actions might not like it. But, a crime? Such thin skin.

Maybe I’d feel differently if I was the victim of such actions. And, no, this is NOT a call to photoshop some image of my head on a porn star’s body.

Unless it was Jenna Jameson. I’ve always wanted to be Jenna Jameson.

    Sarah is keeping in shape. I thought the rule was this could only be done to those who are conservative.

    First, we go after the 2nd amendment, then the 1st…

    If they want to get this bill passed, and for it to survive the Supreme Court, someone needs to do a photoshop Ear Leader’s face onto some skinny dude with a two inch tallywhacker blowing a white guy with, say, David Duke’s head. Not only will word come down from His Majesty that such an image is illegal, he’ll use a UAV strike against the person who would dare to photoshop such an image of His August Self.

    I think the libs do such photoshops out of jealousy. We’ve got the likes of Sarah Palin, they have Hillary Clinton, Barbara Streisand, Helen Thomas, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Candy Crowley, etc. If you were going to photoshop those broads, about the only thing you could do would be to photoshop a bag over their heads … maybe even two bags.

    How dare you attack the liberals divine RIGHT to create, manufacture and to hatch victims. How dare you sir!

    Liberalism (also known as communism in China and the former Soviet Union) depends on its victims. Without victims there would be no need for Liberals. If there were no Liberals the victims would have NO voice in government.

    And I know it sounds like a blissful symbiotic relationship where Liberals and victims are mutually dependant on each other. Happy Happy Joy Joy!! But that is not the case. What we have here is a parasitic relationship where the Liberal (mosquito) sucks the blood from its victim and then discards it (like Cindy Sheehan and the Jersey Girls) when it/they fail to keep producing results.

    A symbiotic relationship is usually mutually beneficial. The parasitic relationship, like the one Liberals have with their manufactured victims is almost always harmful and many times deadly.

    Why is all of this important? Because when you can turn anyone into a victim you can turn anyone into a criminal.

    So would this only apply to images of demo craps? Would it also apply to somebody saying they are native American, when they clearly photoshopped their birth certificate?

    I don’t think I want them messing with my fake pics of Sarah Palin. Who else are we going to lust for? rosie “the giant pig” odonnell? (excuse me while I clean this up)

    demo craps have good ideas! For me to poop on! /Triumph

    This seems like the sort of juvenile prank a middle schooler would pull on someone they didn’t like. Maybe now days with high quality tools like photoshop and HD porn readily available it’d be more believable and thus more offensive.

    Back in my day, you had to scour the internet/newsgroups for grainy, low res pictures that still took forever to load and then edit them with MS paint. And you had to hope you found a picture where the size was about the same as the target picture you had, because resizing made the whole thing look like crap.

    …or so I’ve heard.

    You know its not Sarah, cuz she would have had trigger control!

    Dangerous law. Any photo taken of Obama pretending to be president could be viewed as obscene.

    Does this bill cover when a libtard actor does an impersonation of a VP candidate saying or doing something stupid, and then the clip is run ad nauseum in the media, with no disclaimer that it is not the actual VP candidate, so that the fictitious action or statement is attributed to the actual person being impersonated?

    Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house, but 100% of retarded Obama voters believed she did.

    @11 Coldguy: Why do you feel the need for redundancy in your comment? You can simply say “retarded voters” or “Obama voters” and it has the same meaning – just fewer keystrokes.
