Hanoi Jane arrested at climate change protest she organized in DC

Wouldn’t bother me one bit if they kept this womyn in jail for some time.

From Yahoo: Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington, D.C., Friday while taking part in a protest about climate change.

The actress, 81, shared that she would be at the protest retweeting messages from the Fire Drill Fridays account, a Twitter account named for a series of demonstrations she organized to protest political inaction around climate change.

In an email to USA TODAY, Ira Arlook of Fire Drill Fridays confirmed that Fonda was arrested amid the inaugural demonstration Friday.

U.S. Capitol Police Communications Director Eva Malecki told USA TODAY a total of “16 individuals” were arrested for “unlawfully demonstrating on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol.”

When reached by USA TODAY, a representative for Fonda could not immediately comment.

According to local outlet WUSA’s Mike Valerio, Fonda planned to get arrested. “She tells us she’ll be here *every* Friday into 2020 — demonstrate, get arrested, repeat,” he tweeted with photos of him interviewing the actress.

On the Fire Drill Fridays website, Fonda said she’s moved to D.C. “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.”

“Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in,” she wrote. “We can’t afford to wait.”

Fonda has a history of controversial political activism, including her opposition to the Vietnam War. Fonda’s visit to North Vietnam in 1972 drew fierce backlash that persists today: She was dubbed “Hanoi Jane” and a traitor.

“I’m naive and I make mistakes,” Fonda said in the 2018 HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.” Of the infamous photo that showed her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, she says: “It was a betrayal. … I will go to my grave regretting that.”

This isn’t the first time Fonda has been arrested, either. According to her website, she was arrested for “drug smuggling” at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in 1970.

“I was handcuffed and put in the Cleveland Jail, which is when the mug shot was taken,” she writes. “I was released on bond and months later, after every pill had been tested in a lab (with taxpayers money!) The charges were dismissed and there were a few paragraphs hidden in the back of papers that they were vitamins, not drugs.”

The climate change dumbos should be protesting against pollution and geoengineering in the forms of chemtrails and weather manipulation. Where is the outrage on this, as well as, flouride, drugs, and toxic chemicals in the water supply?

They have to look up, first, to see any chemtrails, but as long as they have their i-cellaphones, that won’t happen.

And the fluoride & estrogen makes them too docile to get outraged.

Protesting against stable climate; that sounds logical. Fonda cant act to save her life, she ain’t pretty anymore, so she stays relevant by being a useless idiot for the Empire of Lies. Lock her ass up, she’s a repeat offender

“Fonda said she’s moved to D.C. “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.”

Then let’s help her out: export her to China. They’d take good care of her.

China releases WAY more pollutants than the US. In another few decades, so will India. Followed by Africa (if those continents ever get modernized).

Being that she’s 81, and if she’s really so concerned about so-called “climate change,” why doesn’t she just volunteer to be a beta-tester at a Soylent Green inspired euthanasia chain that she could franchise?

Modeled on her old exercise videos, there could be an updated video: “Checking Out, with Jane Fonda”
