Glenn Beck’s “Obama pee stunt” has made national headlines but no ones pointed out that the figurine inside the jar is a kneeling President Obama with his hands in mid air in prayer position. The Obama figurine is also seen wearing a white robe.

For years now Beck has argued President Obama has “shocking ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood” and has suggested the commander in chief may be Muslim himself.

So, is the figurine seen inside the jar supposed to be a Muslim Obama? Out of all the Obama figurines and bobbleheads out there, why pick the religious figure to stick in a jar of “pee pee”?

Here’s the last picture before the “Obama in Pee Pee” piece of “art” was taken down from the auction site (eBay screengrab via The Examiner):

“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),” wrote Tiffany Gabbay on Beck’s site, The Blaze.

According to The Blaze, eBay sent the following notification: “not allow bodily fluids to be listed on our site. Even if the liquid in the jar is not urine, you are describing it as such.”

In a stunt to teach his audience about the Constitution and free speech, Beck initially suggested the jar was filled with his urine:

After a day drinking a lot of water, Glenn had a mason jar filled with…his own special brew of yellow liquid on set. Glenn took a Obama figurine, and then placed it in the jar. The result? “Obama in Pee Pee” - which will soon be up for sale for $25,000.

Beck later backtracked and said the liquid was actually beer. (The Examiner reports it’s actually Country Time Lemonade.) Still, because the eBay auction states the jar is filled with a bodily fluid eBay took the auction down.

That didn’t stop Beck though. He went on to solicit bids via e-mail this morning.
