Hanoi Jane Calls Objection to Her Treason "Pathetic"
If you have a foot fetish, I hope you didn't miss Jane Fonda's appearance on the taxpayer-subsidized PBS talk show "Charlie Rose" last week, during which guest host Barbara Walters adoringly sucked and nibbled on Hanoi Jane's toes. As the two cuddled, Baba Wawa set a softball on a tee:
It amazes me that I still get letters about you...what has it been since Vietnam? Forty years?...The anger. "Traitor to her country. Honoring her would be traitorous, stupid," and so on. It goes on and on and on.
Hanoi Jane was quick to take a whack with this paranoid rant:
Well, partly it's organized. It's not spontaneous. Some of it is probably spontaneous. But it's sad, and in a way, it's pathetic, that lo, these many years later, these people have not (pause) made sense of the war. They're off base in terms of where the anger needs to be placed. And I'm made a lightning rod, and the right wing has been very assiduous in fanning the flame of the myth of Hanoi Jane. You know, they've spread lies on the Internet about things I supposedly did that aren't true. And they've kept it alive because it suits their interests.
Apparently a little refresher is in order to help nitwits like Baba grasp why people are still angry that someone as loathsome as Fonda would be regarded as "an American icon."
The soapbox Jane Fonda inherited by being born into the Hollywood elite was not just used to question government policy. She energetically strove to undermine our country's struggle with totalitarianism any way she could, and actively assisted the enemy, with which she openly identified. Like the likeminded and equally contemptible John Kerry, she characterized American soldiers as "war criminals."
Here's what Jane had to say about the totalitarian ideology that killed 100 million people in the course of the 20th Century, and that American soldiers were fighting to prevent from enslaving the entire world:
If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist. . . . I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.
When Fonda and fellow anti-American moonbat Tom Hayden had an illegitimate son, they named him Troy after Nguyen Van Troi, a member of the Viet Cong who was executed by the South Vietnamese for attempting to assassinate Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara in 1963.
In 1970 Fonda teamed up with another militant kook, Donald Sutherland, to form a sort of anti-USO called FTA (F*CK the Army), which toured military towns along the West Coast and throughout the Pacific, with the objective of demoralizing the troops.
Two years later, when over 50,000 Americans had been killed in the war, Fonda traveled to North Vietnam, where she posed for photos on an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down American planes. She made radio broadcasts from Hanoi, again with the intention of destroying the morale of American soldiers. She compared the USA to fascist Germany and imperial Japan, accused it of war crimes, called the President a "new-type Hitler," and urged South Vietnamese soldiers to desert — all from behind enemy lines during wartime.
For reasons utterly beyond my comprehension, Fonda was not executed for her Hanoi activities on her return to the United States, but instead continues to live like royalty, and of course continues to propagandize against her own country to this day, earning her the warm admiration of the liberal media.
Thank you Number 2 for pointing out that the picture of Hanoi Jane and Hanoi John together that originally appeared with this post was a fake. It has been replaced with a real one.

I agree VH, but that photo with Hanoi Jane & Kerry is photoshopped. It was debunked during the 2004 campaign.

Great post VH. I remember the behavior of that traitorous babe well and of her red buddies too. A pity that McCain didn't bomb that AA site with her in place. If that photo with Kerry is a paste up, it still conveys the fact of his mutual anti-american purpose with Fonda.

Fake but accurate? Hehe...
That particular photo might be fake - I can just about see it - but there are other pictures that have Fonda and Kerry together, or at least in close proximity, that definitely aren't faked.

Hanoi Jane is such an airhead. Fonda's socialism led her to marry Ted Turner, moonbat millionaire, and commissar (smirk). Fonda deserves all the abuse she gets and more. FDR would have given her a seat next to the Rosenbergs.

Is it me, or does Kerry look like he's got a few dozen quarters stuffed up his nose in all these old pictures?

I am a vietnam vet and I have many friends in the va hospital with missing legs arms eyes,
I said then that her and john kerry should have been tried for treason and I will still say it and hope before I die they will face the firing squad for treason in time of war.

I caught part of Larry King's interview with Ms.Fonda last night. I think she wrote a book or something. I couldn't watch the whole thing, the TV turned itself off in disgust.
She's an odd one. Her ego is as tremendous as ever. And yes, she's still trying to transform the world.
She was never really that good looking or talented. So what if she has an Oscar? Jodie Foster has two (as well as a hell of a lot more talent and class), and Jodie didn't get it because of who her Dad was.
I felt a kind of sympathy for Jane when she supposedly became a born-again Christian, but I have the feeling her Christianity is as deep as her socialism.
It seems like she's getting towards the end of her life, and doesn't have much to look back on with any pride. If it weren't for all the vile bullshit she's spewed over the years, I would actually feel sorry for her.
PS: I find it funny how she's treated as a great celebrity, but 99% of people under 35 don't even know why she's famous.

This entry is humorous (not to mention inaccuaret in parts, as it uses debunked information and photos).
Even some of the comments are so poorly written and informed, it is clear the authors are not who they allege to be.
I just hope that 25-35 years from now, my energy is not spent disliking people who have little influence, or real power....but instead, is spent on something productive to our society.
I hope you end up eventually doing the same.
