Word: Microchips ain't the problem

'Imagine, if you will, having a beeper in your rectum or genital area'

On April 14, the House Judiciary Committee was surprised by the testimony of an unnamed DeKalb County woman who spoke in favor of a WTF (and Republican-introduced) bill that would prohibit the involuntary implantation of microchips in humans. She said she was a victim of such a crime.

“Microchips are like little beepers. Just imagine, if you will, having a beeper in your rectum or genital area, the most sensitive area of your body. And your beeper numbers displayed on billboards throughout the city. All done without your permission.”

— The woman, as first quoted by the AJC’s Jim Galloway on April 19. She said her “chip” — which she claimed was implanted by the Department of Defense — was placed into her “vaginal-rectum area.”

“Georgia’s Legislature is so completely done with addressing problems that do exist that they’ve moved on to problems that don’t exist… ”

— MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who had actors re-enact the awkward testimony on her April 20 show.

“I have something I would like to implant in the 'vaginal-rectum area' of the Republican Georgia Legislative Leadership. But it’s not a micro-chip!”

— Commenter “Tim White” on Galloway’s article.

“What’s this ladies sic. number? I want to beep her anus right now.”
