19. Glenn Beck Dunks An Obama Figuring Into a Jar of Pee

Date: November 28, 2012

Glenn Beck went on his Blaze television show trying to express his solidarity with artists across history who have felt their First Amendment right threatened. He was specifically referring to Andres Serrano's photograph, Immersion (Piss Christ), when he (unsuccessfully) submerged an Obama figurine in a jar of fake urine. It was just as offensive as it was a gesture of the pathetic lengths he'll go to get attention, even if it means reducing art and the art world to his childish antics.
