Glenn Beck Dunks American Flag (And Obama) In “Urine”

This may be one of the most asinine stunts Glenn Beck has ever engaged in. Apparently he was mocking an art exhibit that featured a painting of President Obama with his arms outstretched and a wearing a crown of thorns. That’s not a particularly original concept as I did a similar work years ago featuring Beck:

Glenn Beck Messiah

When I did my artwork portraying Beck as a Messianic figure it was in response to Beck’s own behavior and his wailing about being the subject of attacks. He wept and hollered and whined that he was being persecuted. Obama has never done any of those things.

Beck’s lame attempt at satirizing Serrano’s “Piss Christ” was really just a big waste of time – which makes it no different than anything else Beck does. On this occasion he dropped a toy Obama doll into what he said was a jar of his own urine. Beck asserted that he was only defending the First Amendment’s protection of freedom of expression, but there was really nothing of substance that he had to say about either the artwork or the Constitution. He just seemed to be getting an excessive amount of personal pleasure from his childish prank that was really nothing more than a desperate attempt to get publicity.

Glenn Beck Urine

The pretend artwork that Beck introduced in his pretend French accent was placed up for auction on eBay and generated bids in excess of $11,000 before eBay removed it. That says something about what his followers find valuable. What he seemed to have missed entirely, however, was that he was also submerging an American flag in the jar of pee. How patriotic of him.

And there was more craziness emanating from Beck yesterday. He delivered a sermon about his search for a plan to save the world. It was a disturbing display of a psychosis that should be troubling to anyone concerned about his mental health. In the course of the sermon he lamented that God was trying to tell him what he should do, but there was just so much that he was overwhelmed.

How can one guy with a video blog reform politics, culture, the economy, education, family, media, and the faith of a nation? Beck looked into the camera and lamented that he had no idea of how to do all of this – yet. But he was getting close to figuring it out. And he had diagrammed his draft of the solution on a giant chalkboard. But it looked like the scribblings of someone in the midst of a schizophrenic seizure, or peaking on LSD, or both.

Glenn Beck Chalk Wall

Seriously, this dude needs help. It’s really too bad that the people in his life are too dependent on his cash generation to intervene and get him into therapy. When he goes off it is going to be messy.

  1. The racism of yesteryear has come full circle in our county. The entire world embraced our choice of a black President four years ago and most nations of the world still support him. The fringe elements of Republican sect have crept through into the mainstream once again with conservative mouthpieces planting the seeds of hate. The only doubt lies here at home rooting from bigotry. Watch the white hands paint Obama in Blackface at

  2. Ok, I’m no doctor but i was married to a man for 10yrs that had manic-depressive/bi-polar disorder. He went on rants just like this. He would fill notebooks with predictions, “insights”, conspiracy theories, you name it…

    It could go on for

  3. Beck is a publicity hound as noted in this post. Beck has never advanced beyond his days as a schock jock and, I would guess, probably never will. Having said that he also seems to be completely mentally unhinged.

  4. Somebody doing a painting of President Obama as Jesus Christ is offensive. So was Jamie Foxx proclaiming, “Let’s give thanks to our Lord and Saviour – Barack Obama!”

    So Glenn Beck responds with his Serrano-like stunt. Stupid move. What Glenn Beck did was offensive and disgusting (although I thoroughly believe the urine was fake). Although I get the point he was trying to make, that point gets lost with this kind of stunt.

    Meanwhile, in the world of left-wing radio: Earlier this week, Mike Malloy fantasized about some Avenging Angel descending from the heavens – and beheading everybody inlvolved with the Tea Party movement. Now that is just flat-out evil.

  5. Beck is down right crazy evil. How in the world does he get away with this!!??
    The man is a total nut case. And to believe some people follow him in whatever he does.
    Beck should be arrested , thrown in prison … For life!!
    This is exactly what dumbing down America looks like
    This is exactly why the world looks down on us is for people like this!
    But I love to say this… President Obama has very good ratings with other countries … Not as Fox News would like for all to believe.
    Come on people, let’s make this a better world than this!

    • “…thrown in prison for life…”

      Thrown in prison for what?? A stupid stunt? Get a grip.

      Meanwhile, did you read what I said about Mike Malloy? Well, he has also spewed that Navy SEAL Team 6, after assassinating Osama Bin Laden, should now do the same thing to George W. Bush. Will you be calling for the Secret Service to arrest Malloy anytime soon?
