If you ever used the term “whiz kid” to refer to Glenn Beck,you now have him pegged.
The media giant is reacting to controversy over a painting of President Obama resembling Jesus Christ on a crucifix by putting a bobblehead doll of President Obama into a container of what appeared to be urine.
“I like to call this ‘Flobama,’” Beck said with a faux French accent,as he played the role of an artist expressing himself on his television program Tuesday evening.
He titled his artwork,“Obama in Pee Pee” and put a price tag of $25,000 on it.
“I have been working on a masterpiece. I have been working on something for quite a while,” Beck clowned. “When I say quite a while,I mean all day, small little doses all day. I drank a lot of water when I did this.”
A note on Beck’s website the Blaze explained: “Beck decided that submerging an Obama ‘bobblehead’ doll in urine (later revealed to be completely fake) was necessary to convey his artistic message. He of course realizes this will be controversial and that many will find his use of the Obama figurine to be disrespectful. The idea,for Beck however,is to be untoward,but through irony,to highlight the hypocrisy of those who would shout in defiance at defacing the image of a sitting U.S. president,but not that of an image so sacred to Christianity –the world’s largest religion.”
Beck also intended his artwork to highlight the hypocrisy of those who complain about demeaning Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.
“If his image were defaced in the same way as Christ’s has been so many times,the backlash could indeed be deadly and the ‘artist’in question pursued by U.S. law enforcement (as was the case for the creators of the YouTube video ‘Innocence of Muslims’),” noted the Blaze.
