Critics Go Berserk, Hurl Insults at Beck Over ‘Obama in Pee Pee’:‘F**kwit,’‘Worse Than Feces’ & ‘Enjoy Hell’

Many on the left are reeling after radio and television host Glenn Beck exercised his First Amendment rights in the creation of his own Obama-themed piece of art. As TheBlaze reported on Tuesday, Beck submerged an Obama “bobblehead” doll in faux urine. His reasoning? To highlight the hypocrisy of individuals who would decry his creation, yet defend the desecration of Christian themes (like this image of a crucified Obama).

Obviously, as noted by TheBlaze’s Tiffany Gabbay, Beck’s project is similar to the infamous anti-Christian photograph titled “Piss Christ,” showing a small plastic crucifix soaked in the artist’s real urine.

The reaction to his “art” has been swift, with left-of-center outlets lambasting the action and with Twitter users hurling slurs at Beck. One individual took to the social media platform to call the host “disgusting and disrespectful” and a “F**kwit.” Another promised to “slap” the commentator if she ever encounters him in person. And yet another dubbed him “WORSE than feces.”

Of course, the Twitter rants didn’t end there. Someone else told Beck,“I hope you enjoy hell as*hole.” Another more sinister message read,“I’d like to put ‘Beck’ in his jar urine with his GOP buddies. Then put an air tight lid on it.” Discussion wasn’t limited only to Twitter.

New York Magazine took aim at the host and Gawker’s Taylor Berman called Beck a “liar,” writing the following:

Now that he’s cornered the denim market, noted patriot Glenn Beck has set his sights on an even more lucrative business. As part of a bizarre campaign to prove the importance of the first amendment, Beck filled a jar with what he at first claimed to be urine (he later admitted it was beer) and then placed an Obama toy inside. He has plans to sell the “art,” which Beck titled “Obama in Pee Pee,” on his website for the reasonable price of $25,000.

The stunt was prompted by a Boston artist who painted Obama crucified on the cross. You know, like Jesus. Naturally, Beck and his ilk didn’t approve of the painting but, being theunstable person freethinker he is, Beck decided to show his support for the artist’s first amendment right by sealing a toy of Obama inside a jar of fake piss.

However, what these outlets and social media users seem to be missing is that this action was taken to show hypocrisy among those who would condemn Beck over his Obama-centric art, yet support (or remain silent) when artwork disparaging Christ is created.

Additionally, as Gabbay noted, it highlights the hypocrisy of those who rail against disparaging Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. These same individuals remain silent or typically ignore the same treatment of Jesus and Christian symbolism.

Beck was auctioning the jar, complete with the Obama doll, on eBay — however the sale was removed on Wednesday (proceeds were set to go to Beck’s Mercury One charity)

Can't we all get along? These insulting "works of art" say a lot about the "artist" and nothing about the subject. Forgive those who try to harm you. Forgive them and stay in the Love with Me. Amen!

No where in your comment do you prove that any of the people sending messages to Beck were even aware of Serrano's work. So you have no proof of hypocrisy. Try harder next time.

While Vincent Serrano may have been trolling to irritate religious nuts by sinking a crucifix in a container of urine as a work of art, he *is* in fact a credentialed artist. For centuries now trampling the crucifix or some other act of blasphemy, such as "Yo Mama's Last Supper," has been exhibited as art, but also displayed to irritate religious nuts. Art has always acted as such a polemic, a shock value, and public irritant. But the art of Serrano and Renée Cox are not threats so much as acts of defiance against religion, while submerging a bobblehead likeness of the President of the USA in faux urine by Glen "bobblehead" Beck is not an artistic endeavor at all but an act to provoke, to communicate a threat, and to incite violence against the President of the United States.

That said, Beck's detestable acts are arguably protected by the First Amendment, though his motives are despicable. It is clear that what he has done is to stir up hatred, incite the rabble, communicate veiled threats, and show himself naked and exposed to the whole world. Everybody knows why Glenn Beck, the moron of Mormondom, lost his job at Fox. His firing occurred because all the advertisers quickly dumped him because of his overt racism: Fox profits had dropped like a rock into the red, and by keeping the malignant buffoon on their payroll, Fox and Rupert would have been dragged down into the hole with Beck.
**********

Which makes me wonder. Since Freddy Fishhead threatened the life of the President of the USA just before the election by calling for his assassination, he has been silent here. The US Secret Service must have dealt him a great dust-up. He should have known better.

Remember Slowwww Sam doing that too? Slowwwww Sam openly called for President Obama to be in a morgue, and then all of a sudden Slowwwww Sam got very quiet. He comes in occasionally to spew teaparty drivel and spam. Looks like the SS grabbed him by his flappy tongue too.

Waste of good beer. Should of drunk the beer and recycled it into the jar. Beck should be ashamed of himself for not recycling.

Post #1 is a whining rant by somebody who is FOS and needs a laxative. Also take your psychiatric meds. You're confused. And then go to bed.

Dear Re Freddy the Fishhead, Thank you so much for explaining to all of us what art is. I'm not sure if Vincent Serrano is a "credentialed" artist but I am sure he's a credentialed azzhole.
