Commie-hugging Jane Fonda was in Frederick, Maryland recently for some sort of appearance at the Weinberg Center for the Arts and she was greeted by about 50 veterans who didn’t like the idea that she was there;
“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.”
Veterans at the protest don’t care that she claims that she “hurts”. In fact, she has told veterans recently that we should “get a life” and forgive her for being a traitor during her trip to North Vietnam. In 2009, she tried to help the failing IVAW with a fundraising event. In 2011, she accused veterans of spreading lies about her – in spite of photographic evidence to the contrary.
Meanwhile back in Frederick;
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.”
“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.
Of course, there were stank-ass hippies there supporting her, too, it is Maryland after all;
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.
I don’t listen to the Dixie Chicks either.
