CheetahOlivetti: CapeFearCadaver: Oh good lord. And my parents actually listen to this wack-a-doodle.

I have two acquaintances who refer to his show as "The News".


A friend of mine's uncle lives deep in the woods and listens to this guy all the time, he's on disability and grows weed every summer that he smokes huge joints all year round in his little house in the woods listening to Beck and the other wackos. That is what I picture the typical listener to be like.

Controversial? Dude, we had the GOP seriously, with a straight face, run inherited-silver-spoon horse-dancing boy as a hero of the common man against an incumbent with an actual middle-class/working-class background. I'm pretty sure the insult value of some grey-haired idiot making a reference to art that no one's cared about in most of a decade by playing with urine doesn't even ping the lowest bar of our insulted-o-meters at this point.

Sorry, dude. Even Benghazi is more controversial than you, you're even less of a meme than Milhouse.

Can it be verified that the liquid used was actually urine? I mean, Glenn Beck's crazy, but I don't think he's that crazy, especially when water with a yellow food coloring is a more than acceptable substitute.
 
2012-11-28 11:57:35 AM  

Rev. Skarekroe: Someone recently showed me a video of Beck getting VERY VERY SERIOUS because some news organization or another had secret info on Benghazi that they refused to release. Beck threaten that he would out them if they didn't do their journalistic duty and publish the information they had.

Did he ever follow up on that? He sure made it sound like a big deal!


The people that watch him don't remember much from episode to episode, as they are more concerned with hen fap.

Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: What's with the greenish tinge? What meds would cause that and how long did it take him to fill the jar?


Maybe he eats a lot of asparagus and shamrock shakes? Regarding how long it took to fill, you're working under the assumption that Beck doesn't have a walk in closet full of similar jars.

Maybe. Then again, I think he might be genius. He took the oldest radio morning zoo sctick/gimmick in the world "The buttoned down bosses are trying to control me, but I'm a free spirit who can't be contained" and took it to the Nth degree and has made a bazillion dollars stealing money from rubes.
 
2012-11-28 12:00:24 PM  
Attention whore wants attention.

Also, Beck and other Christian conservatives both criticize Muslims for going ape shiat when Mohamed is portrayed yet fail to see the hypocrisy in their manufactured outrage over an unaffiliated artists depiction of Jesus/Obama.

I'd pay good money to be able to say that with a straight face.

I was discussing politics with the old guy on my bowling team before the election. At one point, he just shakes his head and says "qorkfiend, you really need some new news sources. Have you ever heard of Glenn Beck?"

So Glenn Beck plays off being so radical and edgy by doing the same thing someone did to be radical and edgy 25 years ago.

You could at least poo on it.

sigdiamond2000: Has there been a cultural event in American history that has obsessed the right-wing more than "Piss Christ?"

Seriously, people. It was 25 f*cking years ago and you're still on about it? Is the guy who did it even alive anymore?

For God's sake, let it go.



I believe the outrage it caused was part of the intent and the point. One could argue that in the realm of art with all its "madonnas" and whatnot it was a fairly fresh and edgy statement, however simplistic. Not really a brilliant masterpiece, but still a statement by an artist in a unique way.

A nutjob pundit making yet another crass attack on a political figure by dipping a farking bobblehead in fake piss is not anywhere near the same thing, which is something Beck and the sheepfarking teabillies will never understand or care about.
 
2012-11-28 12:06:11 PM  
Now he's got a better chance of not having the cops called on him when he does that episode where he just plays with his poop and cries for the entire hour.
 
2012-11-28 12:06:16 PM  
The idea, for Beck however, is not 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.

Is anyone doing this?

Yeah, but the liberal MSM mainstream media won't report on it.

Okay, seriously, wtf is going on with that blackboard behind him? How does that not just scream crazy to anyone who happens to look at it? Seriously, I had a friend who went to art school; dipping bobbleheads in urine doesn't even move the needle but that blackboard is creepy.

I'm waiting for someone to introduce Beck to the work of Karen Finley.

Lumpmoose: It was the scandalized right-wing reaction to Piss Christ, more than anything else, that turned it into a very important work of art. Funny how art works that way.


It also made and tanked the artist (Andres Serrano) career. His work is actually quite good, if a little bit unsettling.

If you pay the $25k for the work of "art" do you also get footage of Beck filling the jar with his urine? I see a lot of moneymaking possibilities here.

I was thinking the same thing.

It's now a cultural icon. I.e. art.

Thanks GOP.

theknuckler_33: Of course.


I'm sure someone is. It's like anything else, with 300 million Americans out there you can find some idiot with every possible opinion and use it to make a "shocking" interview.

Beck is continuing to prove he's on the same level as a 9 year old with unmedicated ADHD but everyone's known that for years.

Stage scenery and props. He's playing up the "Beautiful Mind" mad scientist Hollywood archetype that has "cracked the secret code". Remember, his target audience believes what goes on in Honey Boo-Boo, Pawn Shop Wars and Duck Dynasty is "reality", and that the two guys wrasslin' in the ring really do hate each other.
 
2012-11-28 12:16:59 PM  
Glen Beck is in a frantic dash to the bottom of the crazy barrel. Just when we all think he'shiat rock-crazy-bottom, he redefines crazy in a whole new way. You could say he is the foremost innovator in the insane lunatic arts.

I seriously pity people who watch his crazy rants.
 
2012-11-28 12:17:45 PM  
I'm still convinced that Glenn Beck is simply trolling. He used to routinely troll his listeners back when he was the afternoon drive time guy in Tampa, and when he wasn't trolling he'd always be a sane and reasonable conservative. This is the kind of stuff he'd do to troll too.
 
2012-11-28 12:18:11 PM  
I can't believe that WND uses free software like WordPress to build their website. Don't they know that open source is another word for socialism? They should use a nice commercial language to build their website like ASP.

His urine is tinged sort of green. He might want to have a doctor look into that.


Depending how it dripped out it might also be tainted.

Look at it again, in all its glory. There is a man, in an apron, dipping a bobblehead of Obama into a jar of urine. The background is a chalkboard of crazy.

This one image has captured the entire essence of Glenn Beck, and the soul of the GOP.

This photo should win a Pulitzer. I'm half serious too, only because it looks like a screen-cap of video and doesn't have the candid feel needed for a Pulitzer. Now if someone off camera took a photo showing the whole staged production, I think I would pay money for that.
