There she was on Charlie Rose: Lady Jane Seymour Fonda, better known as the woman who started out as a sex symbol, then actress…turned into a communist anti-war activist, then “feminist,” then exercise guru, and now, she is out trying to get everyone to forget about what she did as a young woman, and well…Let her put all her exercise tapes and books on QVC. You see, too many people protested about her being on the channel, and they took her off.
Jane might be a lot of things but, she knows business. She is apologizing right and left about her stupid activities during the war, and also emphasizing that she is a Christian. Smart PR. And how did she become a “Christian?”, Charlie asked, as if he was asking how in the world she got leprosy.
She went to a lot of political activities and talked to Jimmy Carter, she said.
Yeah—- there’s her problem right there. Jane is ALWAYS talking to the wrong people.
During the 1960s Fonda engaged in political activism in support of the Civil Rights Movement and in opposition to the Vietnam war. Fonda’s visits to France brought her into sympathetic contact with what she later characterized as “small-c communism”: Leftist French intellectuals who were opposed to war.
(Tell me…does communism come in different c cup sizes?)
While watching her banter with Charlie, I thought: she’s good. She apologized profusely about the horrible things she did during the Vietnam war…sitting on that cannon..aimed at our boys. Heck, even I bought her remorse. But tonight I have to remember…Jane Fonda is one of the best actresses on the planet.
The photo exists, delivering its message regardless of what I was doing or feeling. I carry this heavy in my heart. I have apologized numerous times for any pain I may have caused servicemen and their families because of this photograph. It was never my intention to cause harm .
The question is: does she really mean it? Nobody Thinks so, but it’s a bit too late.
And just look at her. At 73, she looks almost a young 45, due to picking the right plastic surgeons. Nobody thinks she looks better than she ever has. (FACE) Money has it’s perks.
Many people would say that poor Jane just couldn’t help turning out as she did. Born into a very liberal Hollywood family, and then: her mother committing suicide when she was 12. Yeah, rich or poor, that’s rough. But did she have to take it out on us?
Jane has apologize for causing so much heartache during a time when thousands of men were sent to Vietnam— many to die. Did she think they WANTED to be there? Sure, we all felt the war was insane, and we hated it, and we all thought we should not even be there, but Hanoi Jane took it a step further.
According to Wikipedia:
Fonda said she had no regrets about the broadcasts she made on Radio Hanoi, something she asked the North Vietnamese to do.
But Jane wasn’t the only one doing damage: John Kerry comes to mind, and he’s still in the Senate.
Nobody Thinks, not only was she doing it for her own compassionate reasons, she was just plain stupid, as many leftist/ liberals are. They want to save the world, to make themselves feel better. And it’s hard to believe that she was that naive to NOT know she was hurting the boys in the field, but her feelings were much more important.
“See what a good person I am?” It’s as if an invisible mommy is lying on their shoulder. It’s as if these people fly high in their planes over the world, and never come down to really see it. They have no clue. No kind of injustice has ever happened to them I guess. I don’t know. What makes these people think like they do?
After the war, Jane made the exercise videos and life went on. She had a good product and if people had not bought her tapes due to her past, she would have never become the millionaire that she is.
But, the war was not her only “mistake.” She has been right up there with every feminist movement ever given a stage. She demonstrated with Women in Black against Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Has Jane said a word about the poor treatment of the billions of Muslim woman who live is slavery? Has she done a protest in front of a Mosque?
I don’t know. You tell me. The “feminists” from the sixties now just want to know if they have the right vibrator, and that’s in Jane’s new book too.
Ted Turner left her for a younger woman. She said he couldn’t take her “religion.” Whatever. She was just dumped for a newer model, something that all feminists were always complaining about, and any woman worth her salt would have damned the action: but not Jane. She learned a lot from Ted, she said: Why, he could look up in the air and recognize a red falcon!
(Okay, maybe she is dense.)
But, with Charlie gushing over her every breathe, she looked to me to be wanting the very thing every single feminist in the world tries to act like she doesn’t want: adoration. Especially from men. Jane Fonda, wants to be the sexy woman, at 73, that she always wanted to be…you see, she always thought of herself as an ugly duckling, and I see nothing wrong with that. I only wish she’d admit it.
You have to admit one thing…she stuck to her liberal views and has never wavered, and I am going to read her new book, because, I know NOTHING about vibrators, or why feminist are such terrible mothers.
And Jane is going to tell me.
Jane Fonda, is Nobody’s Fool. Whatever you many think of her politics, that woman does one thing extremly well: she makes money. Good for her.
