Jane Fonda: “I Have Never Done Anything to Hurt My Country”

Pages: 1 2

“When stories about the torture of POWs later surfaced,” John Perazzo notes, Fonda called them lies. When the POWs began coming home in 1973, Fonda derided them as “liars, hypocrites, and pawns,” dismissing any charge that they had been brutalized: “Tortured men do not march smartly off planes, salute the flag, and kiss their wives. They are liars. I also want to say that these men are not heroes.”

“I have never shied away from talking about this as I have nothing to hide,” Fonda claims proudly in her Wrap editorial. Not true. Fonda’s own autobiography gives her Vietnam-era actions miniscule shrift, and, as with the POWs then and the QVC boycotters now, she simply brands anyone who haunts her with the truth as a liar.

Some would say that Fonda’s actions were decades in the past, and that her critics should forgive and move on. But there should be no forgiveness without repentance, and it’s clear from her Wrap editorial that Fonda not only still refuses to acknowledge the depth of her betrayals, but still labels those critics liars and political extremists.

And she persists in her blame-America-first anti-war activism. In “A Hate-America ‘Peace’ Rally,” John Perazzo reported that Fonda came out of protest retirement and was “the sentimental favorite” at a 2007 anti-war protest in Washington D.C., which featured a parade of speakers faulting America for all poverty, war, and racism. At that protest, Fonda once again complained about “the lies that have been, and continue to be, spread about me” before joining in with the other speakers lying about the war in Iraq. She is a supporter of the radical anti-war group Code Pink and calls Jodie Evans, its co-founder, a “dear friend.” Evans and Code Pink today are serving even more aid and comfort, literally, to our enemies the Taliban, Hamas, and Iran, than Fonda did to North Vietnam in her day.

“I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths,” Jane Fonda muses disingenuously in her Wrap article. But the objective of the persistent effort to bring La Fonda to account is clear: preserving the historical record from her self-serving revisionism, honoring the memory of our servicemen who suffered so horribly in captivity or died at the hands of her Communist friends, and exposing her unrepentant complicity with the enemy. With her, there will always be a war between the power of memory and the power of forgetting.

    Sorry, Jane!

    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
    Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it."

    Hows about " how many times must I forgive my brother ? A. " 77 times 7" . Or -"any man who says he loves me , and hates his brother , that man is a liar " ……but enough of poetry and verse , is there anyone here who actually knows what they're talking about , and is ready to call McNamara a traitor for the phony Gulf of Tonkin incident , and what ensued due to that LIE ? How many lives did that cost ?? Well he DID confess , in his 80's , and even I forgave the S.O.B

    Dear Jane, history speaks for itself. Perhaps you are becoming senile if you do not remember the things said and done by you to our country. You are just damn lucky you were a person of privilege and, therefore, were not tried and executed for treason. There is nothing you have to sale that I will waste my money on. In your delusional arrogance, what makes you think QVC should not listen to the voices of their constituents.? After all, Paula Deen was kicked to the curb for far less than treason!
