Cheri Honkala, head of Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, is organizing the world’s largest ‘fart-in’ to be held on July 28 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center during Hillary Clinton’s anticipated Democratic nomination acceptance speech.
“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,” Honkala says, TruthDig reports.
“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.”
Activists have invited Bernie Sanders to join their bean supper, which Honkala has dubbed “Beans for Hillary.”
The irony. Clinton’s mentor, Alinsky, once tried a fart-in.
The “fart-in” ironically has its roots with the activist movement leader then-Hillary Rodham sidled up to in the 1960s: Saul Alinsky.
He promoted a “flatulent blitzkrieg” as a way to offend the elites of Rochester, New York. …
“Such tactics aren’t just cute; they can be useful in driving your opponent up the wall,” Alinsky said. “Very often the most ridiculous tactic can prove the most effective.”
