Now ... why, at Tony Podesta’s 72nd birthday party, did everybody wear red shoes?
Not sure if this activity is somehow connected...raising money maybe
“The Red Shoe Party, CASAs largest fundraiser, makes up 25% of our annual budget. In order for CASA to serve more children in need, we seek to continue to grow our Red Shoe Party to support our program and services.” “In 2018, celebrate your birthday by inviting your friends and family to join you in supporting CASA! Every donation makes a difference in the life of a child, and we are excited for you to consider being a part of the Birthday Network community!”
For whatever reason it doesnt look like his hand in that photo but later in that same group of photos he is standing in the hall and his hand is normal again.
What’s weird to me about the red shoes is that they are all the SAME red shoes.
And that’s creepy about wanting to show them to the Pope.
"...Historically speaking, this is true! Red shoes if not always red soles have long been associated with issues of power and identity. During the reign of Louis XIV, only aristocratic men had the right to wear shoes with red heels they were strictly reserved for the court. Thus the color neatly distinguished between the haves and have-nots...'
Papal Shoes are RED - I had not known that.
Early in his pontificate Pope John Paul II wore red shoes; however he quickly adopted wearing ordinary brown shoes. Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II were buried in the red leather papal shoes.
"...Pope Benedict XVI restored the use of the red papal shoes, which were provided by his personal cobbler, Adriano Stefanelli of Novara, who has several pictures and documents in his shoe-shop attesting the fact. In 2008, Pope Benedict XVI also restored the use of the white damask silk Paschal mozzetta, which was previously worn with white silk slippers.
Pope Francis has chosen to wear simple black shoes, forgoing the tradition for his papacy...."
Apparently the red shoes are a symbol of power. The links have pictures of red shoes being powerful.
