Best story today about Hanoi Jane Fonda. You do remember her, don't you?

Andrew Breitbart's web site lives on even after his passing. Here is a great story about our very own American traitor, Jane Fonda and the news that a leftist film maker in Hollywood has cast Hanoi Jane to play Nancy Regan in a new movie. You do remember Jane Fonda's infamous scene sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun during the Vietnam War.
Reminder # 11,487: Hollywood Hates You
There are left-wing actresses and then there's Jane Fonda. Fonda isn't merely a left-wing actress or a liberal or even a Leftist; Fonda is a traitor to her country and one of the most morally illiterate, divisive and polarizing figures to ever come out of a womb, much less Hollywood.

Conservatives will stomach certain actors and actresses, even if that individual has gone out of their way to constantly insult who we are and what we believe in. Jane Fonda, however, is something lower than that. She doesn't simply hurl insults at us, she's given aid and comfort to those who were not only were fighting to enslave an entire population under communism, but were killing the American servicemen selflessly fighting to keep that population liberated.
What I've written above is no secret to anyone and that includes the director of "The Butler," Lee Daniels, the man who made the decision to cast this wretched anti-American woman as a conservative icon. Worse still, a conservative icon who's still very much alive.

From Variety:
Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan in 'Butler'

Actress will portray former First Lady in Lee Daniels pic

In the midst of recruiting an all-star ensemble for his long-gestating passion project "The Butler," director Lee Daniels has tapped Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan.
Also, in case you have forgotten, Hanoi Jane also made radio broadcasts to our troops from Hanoi. Here is a transcript from a veterans web site: http://www.1stcavmedic.com/jane_fonda.htm   which also provided the photos used above.

This is Jane Fonda. During my two week visit in the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, I've had the opportunity to visit a great many places and speak to a large number of people from all walks of life- workers, peasants, students, artists and dancers, historians, journalists, film actresses, soldiers, militia girls, members of the women's union, writers.
I visited the (Dam Xuac) agricultural coop, where the silk worms are also raised and thread is made. I visited a textile factory, a kindergarten in Hanoi. The beautiful Temple of Literature was where I saw traditional dances and heard songs of resistance. I also saw unforgettable ballet about the guerrillas training bees in the south to attack enemy soldiers. The bees were danced by women, and they did their job well.
In the shadow of the Temple of Literature I saw Vietnamese actors and actresses perform the second act of Arthur Miller's play All My Sons, and this was very moving to me- the fact that artists here are translating and performing American plays while US imperialists are bombing their country.
I cherish the memory of the blushing militia girls on the roof of their factory, encouraging one of their sisters as she sang a song praising the blue sky of Vietnam- these women, who are so gentle and poetic, whose voices are so beautiful, but who, when American planes are bombing their city, become such good fighters.
I cherish the way a farmer evacuated from Hanoi, without hesitation, offered me, an American, their best individual bomb shelter while US bombs fell near by. The daughter and I, in fact, shared the shelter wrapped in each others arms, cheek against cheek. It was on the road back from Nam Dinh, where I had witnessed the systematic destruction of civilian targets- schools, hospitals, pagodas, the factories, houses, and the dike system.
As I left the United States two weeks ago, Nixon was again telling the American people that he was winding down the war, but in the rubble- strewn streets of Nam Dinh, his words echoed with sinister (words indistinct) of a true killer. And like the young Vietnamese woman I held in my arms clinging to me tightly- and I pressed my cheek against hers- I thought, this is a war against Vietnam perhaps, but the tragedy is America's.
One thing that I have learned beyond a shadow of a doubt since I've been in this country is that Nixon will never be able to break the spirit of these people; he'll never be able to turn Vietnam, north and south, into a neo- colony of the United States by bombing, by invading, by attacking in any way. One has only to go into the countryside and listen to the peasants describe the lives they led before the revolution to understand why every bomb that is dropped only strengthens their determination to resist. I've spoken to many peasants who talked about the days when their parents had to sell themselves to landlords as virtually slaves, when there were very few schools and much illiteracy, inadequate medical care, when they were not masters of their own lives.
But now, despite the bombs, despite the crimes being created- being committed against them by Richard Nixon, these people own their own land, build their own schools- the children learning, literacy- illiteracy is being wiped out, there is no more prostitution as there was during the time when this was a French colony. In other words, the people have taken power into their own hands, and they are controlling their own lives.
And after 4,000 years of struggling against nature and foreign invaders- and the last 25 years, prior to the revolution, of struggling against French colonialism- I don't think that the people of Vietnam are about to compromise in any way, shape or form about the freedom and independence of their country, and I think Richard Nixon would do well to read Vietnamese history, particularly their poetry, and particularly the poetry written by Ho Chi Minh.

Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is a crime. It is called Treason and the penalty is death by hanging. There is no Statute of Limitations for this crime which means she can be prosecuted at any time. How prophetic it was for Jane to star in the 1965 movie Cat Ballou with this scene and then make her infamous visit to North Vietnam in 1972. Was she foretelling her own eventual future?

  1. I am still sickened by how people (and this webmaster) are still bashing Jane Fonda for what she did-long after Vietnam has ended (my bad: it's still going on...in a place called Afganastan). Does anyone realize that folksinger Joan Baez did this BEFORE Fonda and she wasn't crucified? And to think: none of this would of never happened if Kennedy wasn't killed in Dallas, because he (the last President to work for the 99% of America) was going to end Vietnam before it began.

    1. I did a cursory check on Joan Baez and found her protests were limited to anti-war songs and demonstrations but not to going to North Vietnam and sitting on an anti-aircraft cannon wearing an enemy helmet. As to Jane Fonda's escapade, what she did was Treason and there is no Statute of Limitations on it. She only got away with it because the left wing news media supported her. I tend to agree with you about JFK. As I've stated else in this blog I would have voted for him if I was old enough in 1960. He lost my admiration when he and his brother Bobby sold out the Cuban exiles at The Bay of Pigs when they promised them air cover on their invasion attempt to take back their country. Interesting how much history would have changed if that promise was kept.

  2. Firstly, I don't think you understand what prolific means... And secondly, surely giving aid and comfort to the enemy is a Christian virtue? Isn't there a phrase in the bible that starts, "Love thy..."

    1. Thank you for pointing out my mistake. I will now correct it. I should have used the word "prophetic". I don't believe that "giving aid and comfort to the enemy" represents a Christian value.
