“I just think that COVID is God’s gift to the Left,” Fonda said. “That’s a terrible thing to say. I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the band-aid off who [Trump] is and what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country.”
“What a great gift, what a tremendous opportunity, we are so lucky, we have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have,” she added.
If a leading Republican figure said something like this, it would flood the news cycle for a day. And Trump and Pence and every GOP senator would be asked about it. But the rules are very obviously different for Democrats so it won’t be covered, unless President Trump spotlights it, in which case the media will frantically spin it.
Fonda was just saying what so many lefties think, but generally know better than to say out loud.
The pandemic is an opportunity. And as an environmentalist, a whole lot of dead people are a plus.
Of course this is coming from a lefty who partied with the enemy during the Vietnam War. So it’s not exactly surprising. And it’s typical of her utter callousness toward Americans she considers the enemy.
Fonda called returning POWs “hypocrites and liars,” adding, “These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed. … Pilots were saying it was the policy of the Vietnamese and that it was systematic. I believe that’s a lie.”
Not exactly surprising from a Communist.
By 1970 she was telling American college students: “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.”
And a supporter of Maoist mass murderers.
In the 1970s, Fonda was a passionate admirer of the Rev. Jim Jones, a committed communist who had gained considerable fame as a faith healer and cult leader of the People’s Temple, a jungle-based commune in Jonestown, Guyana. In a 1977 statement, Fonda — along with husband Tom Hayden and a number of other progressives — proudly affirmed: “We are familiar with the work of Reverend Jones and Peoples Temple and have no hesitancy in commending them for their example in setting a high standard of ethics and morality in the community and also for providing enormous material assistance to poor, minority and disadvantaged people in every area of human need.”
After a visit to the People’s Temple, Fonda wrote Jones a letter in which she said: “I also recommit myself to your congregation as an active full participant—not only for myself, but because I want my two children to have the experience.”
When Jane Fonda speaks of god, she means the Communist god of the Kool Aid poisoner of children.
