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.” Here are some of these responses, as captured by Twitchy:

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).

Well, they are right.  Obama in urine IS offensive.  So is the Obama painting you posted yesterday.  At least, each is offensive to some people, and not offensive to others.  Both purport to be art.  Personally, I think they both suck.

But, this is America, and we have freedom of expression, no matter how gross that expression is.

Maybe it would be offensive if it was really urine.   It is beer.  It did this on purpose to watch some on the left go ballistic and he was not disappointed.

It wasnt just people on the left. My grandmother is an extreme conservative and she brought this up. Regardless of what we like, he is our president. We may not respect him, but we don't do his job, so we don't owe him disrespect. 

She hates the guy, but she has a point.

IT shows people will flip out over shit they think is similar even though it is not related at all.
