It’s a gas: World’s biggest ‘fart-in’ planned during Clinton's convention speech
Organized by Poor People’s Economic Rights Campaign and 2012 Green Party vice-presidential candidate Cheri Honkala, the ‘fart-in’ will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on July 28.
As for how to get participants all warmed up, Honkala is turning to the ‘musical fruit.’
“We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28,” she told Truthdig.
“We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns,” she added. “The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.”
The ‘Beans for Hillary’ supper does include Clinton’s Democratic rival Bernie Sanders on the invite list, although nobody’s ‘caught wind’ yet of whether he’s accepted.
The group called for canned bean donations and the homeless will receive the leftovers.
RT’s Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and ordained minister, will open the event with a prayer.
#Hillary Clinton is as likable as a fart in a crowded elevator. But because of women like her, I've got the right to vote for somebody else.— Nadia Business (@talk0underworld) June 8, 2016
Honkala released a number of reasons why she thinks Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, stink.
“They decimated the working class with the North American Free Trade Agreement. They exploded the prison population under the 1994 Omnibus Crime bill and draconian drug laws that mandated life sentences. They destroyed the welfare system, and under the old system 70 percent of the recipients were children. They turned the airwaves over to a half dozen corporations by deregulating the FCC. They ripped down the firewalls between commercial and investment banks that precipitated the global meltdown. There is not a war they don’t support. And their record on civil liberties is appalling,” she said.
Honkala, along with Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, were arrested and handcuffed in a ‘black site’ after Stein tried to debate the ‘democratically-elected’ President Barack Obama in 2012.
