Bernie Backers Plan ‘Fart-In’ For Hillary’s DNC Acceptance Speech

Font Size:

Every time the Republican Party disappoints me, I’m reminded that their opponents are even worse. The Democrats really do stink, and some of them aren’t even bothering to deny it anymore.


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.”

I’m not sure how a cloud of flatulence will be discernible from the usual reeking miasma that settles over any gathering of Sanders fans, but I welcome anything that will drown out the sound of Hillary Clinton’s voice.

This whole campaign is a farce, so it’s fitting that these children are taking a page from Mel Brooks:

I’m assuming the DNC is a no-smoking event, right? That could be a disaster. Talk about a dirty bomb…
