World’s Largest ‘Fart-In’ Is Planned for Hillary Clinton’s Acceptance Speech in Philadelphia

Philadelphia: Cheri Honkala, the leader of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, announced that her group was organizing the world’s largest “fart-in” to be held on July 28 at the Wells Fargo Center during Hillary Clinton’s anticipated acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination.

“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 said. “We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns. 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.”


Three (Bronx) Cheers for Hillary!

Everyone doing this will be saying to the world, look, I'm immature and shouldn't be taken seriously.

And the world won't take them seriously.

We will probably laugh at them though.

Can't say whether any such people are here posting on GD.

Why doesn't Trump earn this disdain?

34. Because they might get 'trapped' into confronting the real enemy.

 

It's easier to do this then leave rather than come up with any long range plan of substance. Seriously, if it wasn't for my daughters, I'd think the millennials were worthless because of lazy, pointless stunts like this directed at our allies.

22. This is pretty tame stuff.

In 1969 a naked woman carried a pig's head on a platter at a "liberal (pro-war)" meeting. This was back when "underground" meant something quite different than today.

“[Sharon and Robin] dressed as waiters at a big feast of liberal senators at the Hilton…. Expecting their dessert of apple pie and coffee, instead were served pigs’ heads on platters. Then Robin and Sharon stripped and stood radiantly naked before the thousands of middle-class people. Horrified women hid their eyes. Men giggled and stared. Shelly Winters threw her cocktail at them. Some women began beating naked Crazie Sharon’s beautiful thighs with umbrellas….”

32. Speaking as a card-carrying old person,

(that card being a Social Security card), a Sanders supporter, and a veteran of a number of protests during the '60s which, in hindsight, were also kind of stupid and didn't really accomplish much, this particular stupid protest appears to be the brain child (or brain fart) of younger people, mostly, who think they are being edgy and clever and that this event will brilliantly and eloquently express (ha ha) their opinions of Hillary. And that's fine; I'm assuming that directed flatulence (if outdoors, I hope) is considered a form of speech protected by the First Amendment. But you always have to keep in mind whether what you are doing will actually produce a useful outcome and not just gaseous emissions. And are you going to feel just a bit silly in twenty years when you tell your kids you once participated in a fart-in?

33. Stupid

I suppose they came up with this idea to increase the popularity/name recognition of their organization that seems to have worthwhile goals and intentions. But it could rather be a great way to tarnish your reputation for years to come with juvenile, petty behaviour. Do sponsors want to get associated with the "World's largest fart in"? Are the people who might have been engaged for this cause for decades ok to see their work associated with this?
