That must have really hurt Bernie's feelings.
He's the one who honeymoons in the USSR, cheers every Marxist regime, and Hanoi Jane leaves him at the altar and maxes out for Cherokee Liz.
Hollywood A-listers who contributed the maximum $2,800 primary donation to Warren included TV drama guru Shonda Rhimes and actress Jane Fonda. Barbra Streisand donated $1,000 to the Massachusetts senator.
Hanoi Jane hasn't been an A-lister in a long time. Except with the Viet Cong.
But you can see why Jane Fonda would be drawn to Elizabeth Warren.
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.”
Now, in theory, a politician running for president ought to return a donation from a traitor who posed smilingly with enemy forces and weaponry during a war with the United States.
But Elizabeth Warren won't. Of course.
Jane Fonda called POWs who had been tortured, "hypocrites and liars".
"These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed," Elizabeth Warren's new donor said.
“Tortured men do not march smartly off planes, salute the flag, and kiss their wives,” she said. “They are liars. I also want to say that these men are not heroes.”
(There's plenty more on the Discover the Networks page for Fonda, put together excellently by John Perazzo.)
When new evidence emerged, Fonda then went on to justify the torture of Americans.
"I think probably some of these professional pilots were probably beaten to death by the people whose homes and families they were bombing and napalming," she said.
“These men were bombing and strafing and napalming the country,” she said. “If a prisoner tried to escape, it is quite understandable that he would probably be beaten and tortured.”
Warren's new donor not only mocked the pain and suffering of tortured POWs, justified their abuse, but recorded propaganda broadcasts for the enemy which featured enemy propaganda and spoke on behalf of the POWs.
Fonda also quoted Ho Chi Minh during some of these broadcasts. She referred to President Richard Nixon as a “new-type Hitler,” and advised South Vietnamese soldiers to desert: “You are being used as cannon fodder for U.S. imperialism.”
“The POWs appear to be healthy and fit. . . . All of them have called publicly for an end to the war and signed a powerful antiwar letter . . . .”
“A few of them [the POWs] tell me they, too, are against the war and want Nixon to be defeated in the upcoming elections.
They express their fear that if he is reelected, the war will go on and on . . . and that bombs might land on their prison.”
“I am asked to convey their [the POWs’] hopes that their families will vote for George McGovern.”
“I ask them [POWs] if they feel they have been brainwashed or tortured, and they laugh.”
The Democrats keep saying that every single thing Trump says is "disqualifying". What ought to be disqualifying is treason.
What ought to be disqualifying is standing with the enemy in a time of war, and spitting on POWs. But that's not disqualifying among the Dems. Fonda has a long history of political affiliation with top Dems. And Senator Elizabeth Warren will never be asked to return that donation.
But Vietnam veterans will remember.
