Glenn Beck Pees on an Obama Doll in a Jar and Tries to Sell It

Drip, drip, drip.

20121128-110405.jpgJust when you thought blackboard and caliphate conspiracy enthusiast Glenn Beck couldn’t get any weirder, he goes and pisses in a jar, sticks an Obama toy doll in there, and calls it art.

Via Charles Johnson at LGF:

Raving freakazoid nut sandwich (and right wing hater extraordinaire) Glenn Beck has come up with another stunt to try to get his name back in the media, and it’s working, of course: How Can You Buy “Obama in Pee Pee” and Glenn’s Other Works of Art?

It’s supposed to be a lame parody of Andres Serrano’s “Piss Christ” — without the art or the creativity. This is how far the loony right has devolved, and it’s a pretty nasty sight.

I just.

I cannot.

    I think Glenn Beck hopes Democrats/liberals/Obama supporters freak out over this so he can compare thoughtful, reflective Christians upset about the “Piss Christ” sacrilege to the false idol/Obamassiah worshiping Obots. A “how do you like it when we dunk your “God” in urine” eye-for-an-eye.

    Is there anyway to ensure that the urine in question is indeed Beck’s? I’d hate to think that he’d just be employing factories of winos filling jars for him in order to mass produce these delightful artifacts.

    One of the surefire tells of a right-wing crank is the delusion that the left sees Obama as some kind of messiah figure.

    Brian R. says:

    If it’s really Beck’s piss, we need to buy it and test it to discover just what sorts of hallucinogens he’s on these days.

    When Rice asked to come to the Hill to meet with some of her Republican critics, it seemed détente was nigh. But somehow the hour-and-a-half powwow caused an escalation, with McCain, Graham and Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire emerging to say they had more reservations than before. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who’s scheduled to meet with Rice on Wednesday, suggested that she would be better suited to run the Democratic National Committee than State. If Rice can’t soothe the egos of some cranky G.O.P. pols, how would she negotiate with China?

    Jay says:

    The big reason this Beck thing ticks me off is that, unlike alot of my fellow Christians, I really dug “Piss Christ.”

    Looking at “Piss Christ” with a cool head and years of reading about the philosophy of art under my belt, I came to think of it this way: somewhere, there’s a poor, sick man who’s lost total control of his body. He’s emotionally jolted, lying in dirt and a puddle of his own urine, and he has this cross, covered in the same urine. It’s dirty, but it’s still a cross, and after all that, the man still has it. Or maybe somewhere, there’s an American soldier who’s been left to die in the same situation.

    Think about it.

    I think Beck knows about the controversy “Piss Christ” caused, but he’s way too dumb to look at the picture critically. What’s he’s doing in this instance is saying, “OK, Obama voters, you mock ‘our’ God (as though all of us think the same way about ‘Piss Christ’ or even know what it is), we’ll mock ‘your’ president.”

    Some of these wingnuts want a civil war, yes. That’s just the Neo-Confederates, though. Beck & his cronies want a holy war.

    Time to call the Beckites the new jihadists.
