World’s Largest ‘Fart-In’ Is Planned for Hillary Clinton’s Acceptance Speech in Philadelphia
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!
Neither clever or funny.. Sounds like a comment from the Republican front runner..
Have I been doing it wrong my entire life?
People wonder why they are marginalized and ridiculed.
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.
It is just a sting operation to separate the fools from the serious politicos.
Motorcycle friend of mine who road a Harley said his buddy's were so bad he could smell them on the highway at 70.
Can't say whether any such people are here posting on GD .
But it does seem like a good way to take a verbal dump on Bernie supporters
Why doesn't Trump earn this disdain?
I know the answer, but what is YOUR answer?
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.
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 Sharons beautiful thighs with umbrellas .
(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?
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?
