Cheri Honkala is a major player in the Green Party. She organizes rallies, advocates for the rights of the impoverished, was Jill Stein‘s vice presidential pick in 2012, and she recently put out a call on Facebook for her friends to bring her cans of beans.
What’s that all about?
Oh, nothing! She’s just planning to hold the world’s biggest fart-in. (Make sure your read that with the hyphen firmly in place.)
The Democratic National Convention is coming up in Philadelphia soon and Honkala isn’t a big fan of the presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton. Here’s what she said, per Truth Dig, about the Beans for Hillary event:
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.
She is planning to invite Bernie Sanders to the meal and donate any uneaten beans to the homeless. A Presbyterian minister named Chris Hedges is going to bless the magical fruit before it gets eaten, too.
This can only end well.
