(Editors note: The video above features Becks radio segment from Wednesday morning, discussing the eBay incident.)
The popular online auction site eBay has yanked a piece of artwork done by Glenn Beck citing its belief that the project featured an Obama figurine floating in actual urine (it was not, however). Bids can now be emailed in the subject line to the following email address set up by Beck: firstname.lastname@example.org

On Tuesday evening, Glenn Beck featured an Obama bobble head doll in a jar of yellow liquid, catalyzed by Michael DAnoutos painting titled, Truth, which features a crucified Obama and also parodies the controversial artwork dubbed Piss Christ that defaced a crucifix in a glass of urine.
Becks piece was meant to underscore the importance of adhering to the First Amendment and highlight the hypocrisy of those who adhere to it only when it suits them. Often, members of the Left will rail against the disparaging of figures they hold dear, but do not hold themselves to the same standard when disparaging figures others hold dear.
Beck was auctioning the jar, complete with the Obama doll, on the auction site, with all the proceeds set to go to Becks Mercury One charity. At the last entry its bid was up to $11,300. On Wednesday morning, however, eBay removed the auction page.
For reference, below is Becks Tuesday evening segment in which he unveils his artwork:
Becks piece was spawned by a painting (which was covered by TheBlaze on Monday) that depicts Barack Obama as Jesus Christ crucified, adorned with a crown of thorns. The work, entitled Truth, was created by Michael DAntuono, who said that his First Amendment rights should override someones hurt feelings and that we should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.
After receiving roughly 4,000 angry emails over the painting, DAntuono also said he respects their right to express themselves and hopes they will afford him the same.
With this in mind, Beck chose to express himself, during his Tuesday evening broadcast by featuring a piece of artwork of his own creation. It was meant to highlight the hypocrisy of the left.
Tune in to The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday evening at 5:00 p.m. ET where DAntuono will actually come into the studio to discuss his piece (along with the subsequent controversy) with Beck.
This post has been updated to reflect that the content of Becks mason jar was in fact water with food coloring, not beer.
Rename it Obama in Faux Pee Pee and put ‘er back up.
He didn’t get a federal arts grant for this?
When someone makes fun of the real Jesus, liberals laugh. But just make fun of the fake Jesus in the white house, and they go ballistic.
Well, I’m not sure if Beck made it clear that the pee-pee was imitation, as befits the imitation president whose figure is thusly submerged. This isn’t particularly scandalous of eBay if it really wasn’t made clear (no, no, no additional pun intended).
See nothing wrong with Beck's "freedom of speech" item.
Notice how Ebay makes Beck take a reeducation “tutorial.” You Will Not Make Fun of Our President!
Michael DAntuono, who said that his First Amendment rights should override someones hurt feelings and that we should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.
He better not expect that response to work with muslims.
It’s explained pretty thoroughly in The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and its Role in Enforcing Islamic Law presentation by Stephen Coughlin at
The listing will be pulled even if Beck changes the description.
In other words, a re-education camp, to ensure you understand and comply with (not-so) liberal progressive ideology.
However if you are an active, substantial contributor to the DNC, the tutorial (re-education camp) will be waived.
OK. Call it Obama In His Own Kool-Aid.
They started this stuff about imitation ordure when folks started selling it to perverts and they did not want the bad publicity even though it was imitation. Now, faced with an obvious parody that no pervert would ever order for the imitation ordure, they can only rigidly enforce their rules.
Well really it’s just a list of what eBay will and won’t sell. They’re actually trying to be nice to their “clueless” customers whom as a private firm they have the right to just ban and that’s it. But it sounds so Orwellian.
,,,,, thank you Glen Beck ,,, you have shown the other side how it feels and they don’t like it but I’m loving it . I call it “ RUB OF THE BRUSH “ and I am ROTFLMFAO !!!!!
I use them...and expect nothing from them. Never. Ever.
As long as a person understands that...it's easy.
Well, for full effect it should be displayed in some swank museum, not merely hawked on eBay as though it were a Kewpie doll.
Ever notice that Obama worshippers and Allah worshippers react pretty much the same way when their god is criticized? Maybe there’s a connection - you notice you never see them together......
He’s no stranger to that.
