EBay pulls Glenn Beck’s ‘Obama in Pee Pee’ jar after bids rise to $11,300

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/11/28 17:46:04

A jar of what appeared to be Blaze media mogul Glenn Beck's urine with a President Obama toy in it is already going for $11,300 on eBay - and bids are rapidly rising.

According to Beck the jar is "art," his reaction to reports of a painting of President Obama as Jesus Christ. The auction was posted on eBay with bidding beginning at $5.00.

A link to the eBay auction was posted on Beck's website, explaining that the auction would benefit Mercury One and their Hope for the Holidays fund.

A report on The Blaze website explained that the urine is "fake," and his "art" is only part of his effort "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."

    THAT is BS...if he advertised it as urine, then it was a biohazard and eBay pulled it because of that...AND further eBay is not a museum but a commercial, private enterprise and therefore not a marketplace dealing with free speech, religion, or government.

    PS - notice that the reporting entity, The Blaze, is owned by Beck...

    I wonder, would eBay pull the adds if the "artists" who created the "Piss Christ" and the "Elephant Dung Virgin" offered their creations for auction?

    Probably...considering that they contain biohazards.

    Nope, look! It's made of dung.

    And, as fertilizer, likely subject to standardized safety regulations.

    Now...if it were fertilizer rather than human waste, I would be more surprised then if either the Obama or Virgin examples might be pulled.

    In either cases, dealing in human waste, or unregulated waste products, is possibly contrary to federal and state laws, and most certainly contrary to eBay policy.

    The dung is Elephant, not human, and I've never heard whether "Piss Christ" is made with real urine or even if it's human urine.
    Anyway we've digressed far enough from the point of my statement in the first place, being that eBay has it's own political agenda and censoring going on.

    "The dung is Elephant" - you're talking now about something that NEVER was sold on eBay, as it was part of an art instillation.

    I'm focusing solely on eBay, as the entire premise here is that this was pulled for some political reason rather than it was simply pulled because it violated eBay terms.

    My point is that you're wrong...there are clear eBay terms about the sale of human waste, as I've cited below. Here they are again:

    What about all that poop art? It was widely promoted and accepted and acclaimed by the atheist sect.. What is wrong with pee art? It was in hugely better taste than the poop art. And there certainly was a market and demand for it. Proven by the high bids it drew. Which is the definition of true art. Real art will always survive and be in demand. But the government subsidized art is pretty much all crap. It has promoted the induction "artist" of art that is in no way art.

    Hey we got "piss Christ" don't we? Since we have so many idiots running around thinking and saying that Odumbo is like our lord and savior, (Jamie Fox and Chrissie Mathews), just to name a few of the tards, I say what the hell. Dip Obama’s likeness in pig urine and sell it for what the market will bear. What's fair is fair.

    Everything these pussys do expose themselfs as the hypocrites they really are. All the arguements of dipping a religious symbol in urine now apply to Obozo. I can't believe they're so hurt and offended over art, as ol cable guy says "that's some some funny stuff, I don't care who ya are

    Cause rich people can be ignorant just like anyone else, and while we laugh at his stupidity he may sell it to a bigger idiot thus making a profit. Who'd thought Monica Lewinski would get two million from a cum stained dress?

    The next week Monica took her new dress to the dry cleaner and said to the cleaner there's a stain on my new dress but the old guy left his hearing aid at home so he cupped his hand behind his ear an said "come again" she looked up and said "no this time it's mayonnaise."

    If the post made mention that the "pee-pee" was fake, then they had no reason to pull it.

    Beck is loony, but art is art.

    I have no clue why anyone would want to spend that much money on something like that, but I was referring to eBay pulling it. There is nothing that is against their rules since the pee isn't real. But I get Beck's point and I think that was the whole entire gist of him "creating" that piece of "art".

    It is nice for Beck to do this for Charity. Cheap Obama wouldn't show his school records for 5 Millions to even help out his favorite charity. Would have helped many people.

    Wright has synthesized Christianity and an odious brand of Islam. When two religions become one, social scientists refer to this as a syncretic religion.

    Reverend Wright’s hate speeches are a glimpse of someone who has blended Nation of Islam and Black Nationalist Liberation Theology into a subversive Christianity, one that would hardly be recognized by most black Christians, and much less so mainstream American Christians, regardless of color. Indeed, one suspects that Jesus himself would have a difficult time recognizing the message delivered by Jeremiah Wright.
