Dementors

imageYou remember the Dementors from the Harry Potter books. They were the most vile of creatures—you might call them anti-life. They lived by feeding on horror and despair which they were very good at creating in the minds of their victims. They drained their victims of every good thought, every happy thought, ever decent thought, and left them with their worst experiences—before sucking the soul out of them.

In this Obama conspiracy business there are people who take on the role of Dementors, creating anxiety, fear, despair and anger for their livelihood. There was a very representative pair of them trying the suck the life out of the country by undermining respect for our democratic institutions that I stepped in today.

One is the online tabloid web site WorldNetDaily and the other was a particularly nasty fellow named Glenn Beck that they were reporting on. Beck put a figure of Barack Obama in a jar of what appeared to be urine and called it “Obama in Pee Pee” and tried to sell it on eBay for $25,000. It was reportedly removed from eBay.

WND is conducting a poll of reader reaction to what Beck did. WND readers overwhelmingly reacted positively. Their souls have already been sucked out at that vile place.

    “Beck put a figure of Barack Obama in a jar of what appeared to be urine and called it “Obama in Pee Pee” and tried to sell it on eBay for $25,000.”

    I’m not surprised.

    Glenn Beck has gotten away with a rape and murder in the past:

    Could anyone imagine if we had a Mormon as president?

    Beck and his ilk would have a field day. Just like Arizona SoS Bennett.

    We are, after all, talking about the guy who during his shock jock days, found out that the wife of a buddy of his (said buddy was at that time at a rival station) had miscarried.

    So, he called her up, live on the air, and proceeded to mock the couple, saying that, hey, his buddy just couldn’t do anything right, huh?

    What a swell guy.

    Paul: Beck is a Mormon.

    So is Bennett.

    Misha’s been following the whole sordid rape and murder story for a while; I suspect he knows about what rituals Beck followed that day.

    Eisenhower’s Ag Sec was Ezra Benson, a Mormon elder.

    When Benson was asked why the Mormon church refused black members, he replied “Darkies are good people and they have their place.”

    Birds of a feather…

    Is it a fair comparison on Beck’s part?

    They are also very concerned (again) about the ‘crucified Obama’ painting. Some guy paints something, nuts get panties in bind. Guess why a relatively unknown artist would paint something nuts would foam at the mouth over? To get the coverage nut farmers will predictably give them! Duhhhhhh……as birfers know very well, negative response is better than no response.

    Oh, silly me, Beck was making a direct response to the painting. Spoofing with a spoof, sort of. I say it isn’t urine. eBay clearly yanked it for false advertising. Believe me, I know my urines.

    Dunno. Serrano is an artist. Beck is not.

    I am not an art critic. Make up your own mind.

    Serrano is a bona fide artist. Beck is a rabble rouser.

    All those drugs and alcohol damaged his brain. Plus, his magic underwear is too tight.

    Speaking of demented, Orly is calling for people to bring protest signs with them to DC on inauguration day. I decided to mess with her, and told her that I’d call in and tell the Secret Service to be on the look out for a bomb-toting terrorist wearing an ugly poofy blond wig.

    To quote a certain barber, I’ve been “naaaaaaughty!”
    Because the crank probably can’t tell when someone is making a joke at her expense, she’ll no doubt claim that I am trying to have her killed.

    Keith: I am not an art critic. Make up your own mind.

    I hold a BFA with a minor in Art History. While conceding that I am currently mostly retired from creative endeavors, until an MFA and/or a working Art Historian comes along, I’ll assert expertise.

    My semi-professional opinion is:

    Nope. It’s a political demonstration, an editorial comment, a satire, and all in poor taste. There is some wit in referencing Piss Christ, but in being done for the titillation of an audience, and done specifically to dredge up past faux outrage, it’s just exploitation. It was a shameless performance, that makes no lasting, constructive statement about, or contribution to, culture. It was a demonstration of, not a commentary on, the depravities we are capable of.

    As for the relic, what was placed on eBay, it’s a stage prop. Like Beck’s chalkboard, but of far less import. I can’t believe he still uses that chalkboard … ! His act never evolves.

    “Communist” has nine letters. “Glenn Beck” has nine letters.

    Coincidence?

    Not at all! Nor is it a coincidence that “douche bag” contains nine letters, as well.

    As an art lover, I’m not offended at Beck’s lame attempt at “art.” But as a homebrewer (since 1986), I AM offended that he used beer as his substitute for urine. It’s taken years to get the rest of the world to start respecting American ales and lagers as being anything other than “pisswater.” Who knows how much this stunt of his has set us back!

    I think I’ll call my next creation (an altbier) “Glenn Beck is a Huge Douchebag Alt.” Ah, what a piss-ant he is!!

    JPotter: My semi-professional opinion is: …

    I note that Piss Christ has been on display at a Serrano exhibit in New York for the last couple of months According to Wikipedia:

    Beginning September 27, 2012, Piss Christ was on display at the Edward Tyler Nahem gallery in New York, at the Andres Serrano show “Body and Spirit.”[18] Religious groups and some lawmakers called for President Barack Obama to denounce the artwork, comparing it to the anti-Islamic film Innocence of Muslims that the White House had condemned earlier that month.

    Perhaps this is Beck’s ‘inspiration’.

    That’s the one! Put a figurine in a bottle of yellow liquid with a name tag that says ‘Glen Beck’. Title the work ‘Piss Ant’.

    You know guys, we could completely claim this. Start submerging various depictions of beloved, inspirational figures and popculture icons in various liguids, in various container, and “displaying” them on eBay. The wittier the combination of persona, fluid, and container, the better!

    And a more permanent online “gallery” as well. The thoughts are more important than the objets. Anyone have a spare webpage?

    Now, see, that would be art.
