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.”

Beware if this creature comes knocking on your door…

From Daily Mail: Actress Jane Fonda reveals she’s ‘scared for our democracy’ and to raise political awareness for the upcoming election she rolled up her sleeves and went door-knocking in the swing state of Pennsylvania.

Though she has two Oscars, four Golden Globes, and immeasurable accolades to her name, the 81-year-old returned to political activism earlier this month to canvass for Working America in a working class neighborhood in Scranton.

There, she spoke to disgruntled voters who to open up about their political views, their concerns in the upcoming election, and to educate them about Trump’s policies.

‘I’m scared. I’m scared for our democracy, for our ability to live together in community across lines of race, class and religion. I’m scared for my grandchildren and for the planet. The country is contorted and polarized, with the flames of hate fanned by leaders at the highest level,’ she revealed in a Washington Post op-ed.

Megyn Kelly takes Hanoi Jane down a notch


Hanoi Jane has a beef with Megyn Kelly. It started when Fonda appeared on Megyn’s show last year and Megyn asked Fonda about her plastic surgery. Megyn noted she looked good and it wasn’t asked with malicious intent, in my opinion.
Hanoi Jane didn’t appreciate the question and has been whining about Megyn for months. On Monday, Megyn had some choice words for the traitor.
The part where Megyn puts Hanoi Jane in her place begins at the 1:29 mark.
Couldn’t have said it better myself!

Hanoi Jane praises Colin Kaepernick: "Keep kneeling until you can't stand up!"

hanoi jane
One would expect this praise from the anti-American womyn.
From Hollywood Reporter: The ACLU of Southern California’s annual Bill of Rights awards gala Sunday evening was a star-studded affair with honorees such as Viola Davis, Gina Rodriguez, Jane Fonda and Judd Apatow, but it was Colin Kaepernick who received the loudest applause.
The NFL star took home the Eason Monroe Courageous Courage Award.
“He’s been viciously and unfairly criticized,” said ACLU Southern California’s executive director Hector Villagra. “He’s been called a traitor because too many people in this country confuse dissent for disloyalty. He took a stand knowing some would threaten him and he has had his life threatened which is why that we are profoundly honored to have him here [and] we didn’t publicize his presence tonight.”
When Kaepernick hit the stage, the audience jumped to its feet. “We must confront systematic oppression as a doctor would a disease. You identify it, you call it out, you treat and you defeat it. We all have an obligation no matter the risk and regardless of reward to stand up for fell men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human rights cannot be compromised. In the words of Frederick Douglas, ‘If there is a no struggle, there is no progress.'”
Kaepernick received a second standing ovation before Billy Eichner came on stage to present a Bill of Rights Award to Judd Apatow. “I have to follow Colin Kaerpernick?!” Eichner joked. “I didn’t even wear the ACLU ribbon at the Emmys because it didn’t match my tuxedo, which I feel terrible about now, by the way.”
Judd delivered more of a politically charged standup act than an acceptance speech, which included his hope that the alleged “pee tape” of President Donald Trump would be released.
“But if there is a pee tape then who becomes president? Mike Pence,” Apatow said. “Then we need another pee tape, maybe of Trump sitting next to Mike Pence. So, we need another pee tape because then who becomes the president? Paul Ryan… We basically need a tape of a Russian hooker urinating like a firehose on like 40 Republicans until we finally get Bernie Sanders.

Hollyweird Boycott: "Our Souls At Night" starring Hanoi Jane

I will never give that traitor Hanoi Jane any of my money.
From Hollywood Reporter: Love stories are common in Hollywood, with tales of first loves even more ubiquitous.
The new film Our Souls at Night, starring Jane Fonda and Robert Redford, is a romance between two characters who have both lost their first loves and are getting a second chance later in life. “It was a movie about two old people that have an extraordinary relationship and that doesn’t come along that often,” Fonda told The Hollywood Reporter at the film’s New York premiere at The Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday night.
In the adaptation of the Kent Haruf novel of the same name, Redford and Fonda play Louis and Addie, two neighbors that have both lost their spouses. While they’ve been acquaintances for years, the two don’t get to really know each other until Addie comes knocking on Louis’ door with an unusual proposal. She asks if he is interested in sleeping with her. The request is not sexual but instead an attempt for Addie to feel less lonely at night. Louis accepts the offer and a strong bond between the two is created.
Though the characters may be older, they are not done growing as individuals. “I always saw this movie as a coming-of-age story,” director Ritesh Batra said. “Coming-of-age stories are not just for younger people.” The director believes both characters grow in the film and that every generation can experience a coming-of-age story. “I’ve been coming of age every decade in my life in a small way,” he added.
Our Souls at Night, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, will be released in select theaters and on Netflix on Friday (Sept. 29).

Hanoi Jane met with protest in Frederick; hopes for open dialogue with Vietnam-era veterans

hanoi jane
Frederick News Post: Jane Fonda said she hoped for an open dialogue with veterans after about 50 former military members and supporters protested the actress’s appearance Friday evening at the Weinberg Center for the Arts.
“Whenever possible I try to sit down with vets and talk with them, because I understand and it makes me sad,” Fonda told a relatively full theater, responding to a submitted question. “It hurts me and it will to my grave that I made a huge, huge mistake that made a lot of people think I was against the soldiers.”
hanoi2
In 1972 Fonda visited Hanoi, North Vietnam, where she criticized attacks on the dike system along the Red River. A U.S. investigation later revealed the publicity of these bombings as propaganda. Fonda’s statements and a photograph of her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft battery outraged many Americans and veterans, leading many to call her “Hanoi Jane” and a “traitor.”

Bob Hartman, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam in 1967 and 1968, said he blamed Fonda for breaking off negotiations among the countries and held her responsible for thousands of American lives.

“She encouraged North Vietnam to pull away from the negotiations table,” he said, holding a sign outside the Court Street parking garage to protest her presence. “She got Americans killed … and she went to Vietnam to advance her husband’s career.”
About 50 veterans, many of whom served in Vietnam, held signs saying “Forgive? Maybe. Forget? Never” and waved flags outside the theater for about two hours, occasionally booing people entering the Weinberg Center, including state Sen. Ron Young.
“But those people out there … I’m a lightning rod,” Fonda said. “This famous person goes and does something that looks like I’m against the troops, which wasn’t true, but it looked that way, and I’m a convenient target. So I understand.”
However, Fonda said she did not regret traveling to North Vietnam, saying her time there was “an incredible experience.”
hanoi jane
“We feel what she did was so egregious … (she) really cost lives,” said Mike McGowan, a Marine Corps veteran who served as an infantryman in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969.
Among the protesters was Frederick County Councilman Tony Chmelik, who said he decided to support the veterans in honor of his father, who served in the military. “(We want to) let everybody know we haven’t forgotten,” said Tommy Grunwell, a Marine Corps veteran who served in Vietnam and helped organize the protest.
At least one person turned out to demonstrate in favor of Fonda, saying the actress’s work as an activist and founder of nonprofits helping women should also be recognized and represented. “I feel like you can’t vilify Jane Fonda but not vilify our government,” said Gabrielle Hash, who stood among veterans holding a handmade poster in support of Fonda.
During her hourlong talk, Fonda discussed the importance of adolescence in shaping women’s and men’s lives, and how she regained her courage and spunk in the “third act” of her life upon turning 60. “My voice went underground, and it took me a long, long time to get it back,” she said.
Through working with adolescents at the nonprofits she founded, Fonda said she discovered that most girls are “whole” before approaching puberty; they know what they want and are not afraid to voice it. But upon entering adolescence, this voice fades as girls are pressured to fit in and mold themselves to society’s ideals of a thin, popular woman.
“Her voice doesn’t disappear, but it goes underground,” Fonda said, describing how this plagued her through three marriages.
But for boys, many are led to believe they need to act strong and fearless from the time they enter the formal school system at age 6, according to Fonda. “They become emotionally illiterate,” she said, adding that some of these boys later become violent when their masculinity is threatened in any way.
In describing her own struggles with age, marriage and respect, Fonda urged audience members to seek forgiveness and happiness through small changes like daily meditation or walks outside for a longer and more fulfilled life.
“If … we can manage to think positively … we can actually alter the pathways in our brains,” she said. “I’ve experienced it, so I know it’s true. It takes work, it takes intention. But man, is it worth it.”

Hanoi Jane to build shrine of herself

jane fonda memorial wall
NY Post: Even Jane Fonda needs a reminder of her fabulousness. At 77, the actress is building a “shrine” to herself that she hopes will boost her recently faltering confidence.
Kerry & Hanoi Jane
“I’ve found myself backsliding a bit of late in terms of where my thoughts have tended to reside (not always with the generosity of vision I wish for) and my confidence has been iffy for the past four months,” the stunning star traitor wrote in a blog post Sunday, her 77th birthday.
“So, while meditating today an idea came to me: I’m going to create a shrine to myself – or, at least, the self I wish to be, the self who began to manifest when I was a young girl before the s–t hit the fan,” she continued.
hanoi2
The “shrine” will be a small place filled with items that remind Fonda of “the qualities that represent my best self.” So far, she plans to include a school report from the fourth grade. She’ll spend the new year collecting objects and symbols that “remind me that I’m brave.” “I’ve been forgetting that,” she revealed.
hanoi jane
“I will put a special candle on the shrine and burn sandalwood and put some special Native American artifacts that I’ve treasured over the years in honor of the Mohawk Nation where my Fonda ancestors built their homestead,” she added.
The “This Is Where I Leave You” star celebrated her birthday at a dinner with boyfriend Richard Perry, who is battling Parkinson’s disease, brother Peter Fonda and Peter’s wife, Parky.
In June, Fonda received the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, where she was feted by fellow A-listers Meryl Streep, Sally Field and Sandra Bullock.

I can’t write what I really want to about this narcissistic traitor. I leave you with this:

‘I have so little time left!’ Jane Fonda, 76, reveals she can’t stop crying as she comes to terms with her own mortality

hanoi jane

Daily Mail: She may not look anywhere near her 76 years (plastic surgery is great for that) but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age.

The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn’t exactly kind to aging actresses – admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality.

In a thoughtful blog post entitled ‘Crying’, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ‘[I’ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface? And I’ve come to feel it has to do with age. I have become so wonderfully, terribly aware of time, of how little of it I have left; how much of it is behind me, and everything becomes so precious (sic).’

Despite Jane worrying about her mortality, she believes getting older has its advantages, namely allowing her to appreciate the beauty in the world.

She said: ‘With age, I am able to appreciate the beauty in small things more than when I was younger perhaps because I pay attention more.’

‘I feel myself becoming part of everything. I seem to be super sensitive to people’s joy and pain. I ache for unwanted children in the world, for polars bears, and elephants, and Monarch butterflies, and dolphins, gorillas and chimpanzees (sic).’

hanoi jane3

Most recently Jane found herself becoming emotional at her friend Kerry Washington’s baby shower on Sunday. She wrote: ‘Today I was at Kerry Washington’s baby shower. She’s 7 months pregnant and looking radiant.

‘It was a wonderful party with guests  being asked to go into a photo booth and take 6 different poses that  were then mounted on a black paper where we could write a message;  signing a diaper (I wrote “I hope everything comes out alright!”),  putting signed thumb prints onto a drawing of a tree – I had no idea  there could be so many nice ways to commemorate the up-coming event and  leave loving memories for mom and baby.

‘I hadn’t seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I starting crying.

‘Then Kerry’s mother spoke, giving words of wisdom to Kerry and the rest of us about how to raise a baby to be a happy, fully realized, person. I started crying again (and it wasn’t  because I wanted to go back and do my own raising of my own kids all  over again with more wisdom, though that did press in on me) . . . it  was because her words moved me (sic).

‘I’ve listed sad things but what startles me even more is how I get emotional about nice things, like Kerry Washington’s belly and her mother’s words of wisdom and Elizabeth Lesser telling me about the new book she’s writing. Maybe because I’m older my heart is wider open, like a net that wants to catch all the things that matter (sic).’

The thrice-married prolific blogger, who has three children, also joked she is becoming so weepy these days that she can ‘only wear waterproof mascara from now on’.

Excuse me if I have no empathy for this traitor. Too bad she cares more about polar bears, elephants and butterflies than she did about our soldiers.

Jane Fonda’s F-You to America

According to Wikipedia, in law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more serious acts of betrayal of one’s nation. Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as a “citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” Treason is the only crime that is specifically defined in the United States Constitution. Article III, Section 3 specifies that “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Fonda visited Hanoi in July 1972. In North Vietnam, she was photographed seated on an anti-aircraft battery– the kind that was used by the VietCong to shoot down U.S. military aircraft.

During her trip, Fonda made ten radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military leaders as “war criminals”. When POWs returning to the United States recounted their having been tortured, Fonda called them “hypocrites and liars” because “These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved.” In 1973, Fonda told The New York Times that although “I’m quite sure that there were incidents of torture … but the pilots who were saying it was the policy of the Vietnamese and that it was systematic, I believe that’s a lie.” Then she stated that the POWs were “military careerists and professional killers” who are “trying to make themselves look self-righteous, but they are war criminals according to the law”. [Source: Wikipedia]

In her 2005 autobiography, Fonda writes that she was “manipulated” into sitting on the battery. In an entry at her official website, Fonda further explained: “It happened on my last day in Hanoi. I was exhausted and an emotional wreck after the 2-week visit.”

Lies!!!!!

Before, during, and after her Hanoi trip, Jane Fonda was in contact with
a North Vietnamese intelligence officer. That is not the behavior of
someone who was “manipulated.” (See “Jane Fonda & her North Vietnamese Intelligence Officer,” Aug. 21, 2011.)

Despite occasional “apologies” for her 1972 treason, Jane Fonda is utterly unrepentant.

How do I know?

Because she actually chose to wear a “Hanoi Jane” T-shirt in a promotional video for her latest movie, The Butler, in which she plays Nancy Reagan. To see the promotional video, go here.

Here’s a screenshot I took from the video:

Hanoi Jane

That’s her “F*CK YOU” message to the U.S. soldiers who fought and died in the Vietnam War.

That’s her “F*CK YOU” message to all Americans.

Hanoi Jane, for what you did, you should have been tried for TREASON — if President Nixon and the Congress of 1972 had any balls.

I didn’t see The Butler in the movie theater, and I most certainly will not watch it even if a TV network broadcasts it for free.
