Add ridicule to the long list of pleasures that we had better make the most of while our rulers still allow it:
A Georgia state lawmaker with an unconventional grasp of the First Amendment is backing a bill that would make lewd photoshopping a crime punishable by a $1,000 fine.
Rep. Earnest [yes, that’s how his mom spelled Ernest] Smith pointed, as proof of the problem, to a picture of his head that was recently edited onto a pornstar’s body. That image was created by a blogger who used the image to mock Smith.
The Augusta-based [Democrat] legislator said he was not worried the bill would step on First Amendment rights.
“Everyone has a right to privacy,” he told FoxNews.com. “No one has a right to make fun of anyone. It’s not a First Amendment right.”
After all, there was no Photoshop in the days of the Founding Fathers, just as there were no AR-15s.
Libs had better check their own sacred texts before outlawing ridicule, which their prophet Saul Alinsky described as “man’s most potent weapon” (Rule for Radicals #5).
