Someone dropped off a link to our Facebook page to an idiot on another idiot’s TV show. Apparently, Jane Fonda thinks that she can still make up for what she did in Vietnam in 1972 when she supplied the North Vietnamese with some valuable propaganda footage of her visit there. Now, her story is that she was tired and didn’t realize what she was doing when she sat on the anti-aircraft gun and posed smiling and laughing with the NVA soldiers. She hints that she may have been “set up” – whatever that means. Then when she was walking away from the publicity photos she gasped “What did I do?” Yeah, I believe that story just like all of the other crap she’s said in the past.
She calls it an “unforgivable mistake” and, ya know what? I don’t know anyone who has forgiven her, so she gets her wish. Obviously, she’s trying to be forgiven for those things she did so long ago, but if it’s “unforgivable”, I guess we can’t.
In the 4 minute video linked above, she claims that she met some Vietnam veterans in 1988 and they talked about their feelings and she came away with a whole new perspective. I don’t know if they joined hands and sang Kum-Bay-Yah or not, but it sounds from the interview they almost reached that point. From News Max;
“What I learned,” she said, “we have to listen to each other, even when we don’t agree, even when we think we hate each other. We have to listen to each other’s narratives, not interrupt defensively or with hostility, but really try to open our hearts and listen with empathy.”
Yeah, well, it’s just too damn bad that she didn’t learn that 40 years ago. I don’t believe her lyin’ talkin’ ass anyway. In 2009, we caught her raising money for IVAW. We caught her hosting “upside down ribbons” Marine Captain Marlissa Grogan while Grogan perpetuated the myth that the troops are a bunch of criminals who have no choice but go to war.
Yeah, that was all four years ago, but does anyone really believe that Hanoi Jane has changed since then? After all of these decades? The lesson here, kids, is that if you don’t want something to follow you around for the rest of your life, think before you act. It’s only fun today, if it’ll still be fun for you tomorrow.
The 4-minute video is at the first link above, but I won’t think any less of you if you don’t watch it. I only did it because about 1% of you click the ads.
