Skip to comments.Jane Fonda Finally Apologizes
Posted on 11/25/2012 1:20:38 AM PST by islamisasataniclie
It only took 40 years. But finally, actress-turned-workout-specialist Jane Fonda has apologized for sitting on a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun during her 1972 visit to North Vietnam. Fonda, who used her fame to push her radical leftism during her heyday, traveled to Hanoi in 1972 in solidarity with the Viet Cong. While there, she proceeded to blame the US for supposedly bombing a dike system, and did a series of radio broadcasts stating that US leaders were war criminals. Those broadcasts were replayed for American POWs being tortured by the Viet Cong. Later, when POWs spoke about their experiences of torture, Fonda would call them hypocrites and liars, stating, These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed. She explained that these POWs were careerists and professional killers.

You are exactly correct
She’s not sorry for her actions.....she’s only sorry for
hw people treat her because of them.
She’s not sorry for her actions.....she’s only sorry for

Too little. Too late. Too staged.
...FUJF...she apologized to the VC for sitting on their gun...apology NOT ACCEPTED...you will ALWAYS be remembered as a TRAITOR...B****
Maybe she realizes her treachery and treason disqualifies her not only from public affection, but also from getting her footprint or handprint in the sidewalk in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater the way her father Henry Fonda did. There are lots of photos of her in front of the theater. An apology that took forty years for aiding and abetting your country’s enemies is not a sincere one. There is some kudos for which she’s angling.
Old news, regardless of the headline it wasn’t an apology but regret over a bad photo shoot, and previously posted here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2962118/posts
She should have been executed for that action in my opinion
Yep! Well stated.
I have to confess...I loved Barbarella,the movie.
I think she later so regretted making it.
In her Marxist years, I despised any and everything about the slut.
“Too little. Too late. Too staged.”...
She is getting old now and, through her life review, she knows her treasonous behavior against her country will be her legacy..Her acting ability or fame pales up beside that. We all pay for our choices on this earth’s journey and it was Jane’s choice to use her celebrity against her fellow Americans. Other Hollywood celebrities are making similar anti-American choices right now and I predict regrets will come nearer the end of life for those folks, as well.
Henry Fonda had two children, Peter Fonda and Fonda Peter. Look at how she turned out.
Dig down in the article and you find she’s just trying to hype up more sales for her biography.
Why she wasn’t hung from treason, I’ll never understand.
This doesn’t make sense “business-wise”. People who love Reagan hate Jane Fonda and people who love Jane hate Reagan. So who goes to a movie like this , the fringe center?
Where’s the so-called apology?
Doesn’t mean a thing. She was not a little kid. She was an activist. Go away Jane.
She’s just trying to get a better reception for her portrayal of Mrs. Reagan in that movie. Her disgusting portrayal of Ronald Reagan’s wife is another finger in the eye of loyal Americans. She should have been shot as a traitor.
No . . . she’s trying to loosen America up for Oscar nominations in case the film does well.
Furthermore, I'll never forgive her for her exercise books and tapes. That no pain, no gain thing nearly wrecked my back.
Planning the popular memes for John F’in Kerry’s SOS nomination. That’s if you want to ask yourself, “why now?”.
She is a typical example of nepotism in Hollywood.
There are two ways to make it in Hollywood ,screw somebody important or be a relative of a star.
I think she probably did both.
Her being picked to play Nancy Reagan in a movie is a deliberate slap in the face of Conservatives by a liberal Hollywood.Deliberate.
I know I will not see this movie and I pray no American will watch it. Giving money to a traitor is not my cup of Tea.
I would say she is an America hating traitor and in a just world would have been hanged long ago..
I sure hope she has made plans to be buried in Hanoi. Because, she ain’t gonna get much “eternal rest” if she is buried here. That warm piss tricking down probably will bother her for a long time.
I don’t care what she says or does. I’m not seeing the Reagan movie.
You can buy her book used for $0.01 on Amazon. Heh, heh, heh
"Peace" be upon you!
if they do put her handprints in concrete, they better include a drain to the sanitary sewer as part of the display, or else the urine build up will get pretty nasty.
I didn't see the actual apology. Was it worded as a real apology, or did it include the word "if". "I'm sorry if you were offended by me posing on a AA gun" is not a real apology, but I suspect that is how it was worded.
She should show her sincerity by hanging herself.
Yep. It must be impacting her earnings.
I’m not even American and I hate her.
Maybe some homeless Vietnam vet will someday do us all a favor concerning Hanoi Jane.
I don’t read the daily obituaries, because the obituary I’m waiting for will be on the front page, above the fold!

Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam is not a potboiler; it is a blood boiler, and your blood will surely boil when you read the Holzers description of Jane Fonda’s treachery during the Vietnam War....

Nelson DeMille, novelist
Using [Jane Fonda’s] own speeches ... Professor and Mrs. Holzer cleverly connect her eagerly delivered statements to the law of treason, and lead you through a thicket of law and evidence with incontrovertible logic. Follow them through this remarkable book as they prove that there was enough evidence to indict and convict her of the grandfather of all crimes. You, too, can review that evidence, and then cast a ‘guilty’ ballot.
George E. “Bud” Day, Col. USAF (Ret.), Recipient of the Medal of Honor
We former POWs will never forget being forced to listen to the propaganda broadcasts of Jane Fonda from Hanoi. Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam is ‘must reading’ for those who want irrefutable proof of Hanoi Jane’s treachery, and its legal significance.
Mike McGrath, Capt. USN (Ret.), President, NAM-POW
No American who loves his country will fail to be sickened by the story Professor and Mrs. Holzer have told in this book. They are owed a debt of gratitude by those who cherish liberty and continue to defend it.
David Horowitz, David Horowitz Freedom Center
Axis Sally, Tokyo Rose, Lord Haw Haw all of whom were punished as traitors would have been amazed to read Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam. The sum for their acts of treason equals a small fraction of the acts of aid and comfort Jane Fonda gave our Communist enemies.
This book will shock many Americans. That Fonda committed many acts of aid and comfort documented here is astonishing. That the American government looked the other way is astounding. This book provides the indictment that the government could have handed to a jury if it had had the will to do so.... A ‘must read’!
Fred Kiley, Col. USAF (Ret.), co-author, Honor Bound, American Prisoners of War in Southeast Asia, 1961-1973

It is not our job to forgive. It is our job never to forget. ... Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam is a fine book. It is an incredible book ... impressively detailed and well documented.

Unmasking Jane Fonda. This book should be read by everyone like myself who, at one time, felt that Jane Fonda was an American idol.
The revelations described here, with irrefutable primary source evidence, will convince even the most diehard supporters that Jane Fonda committed treason as defined by the U.S. Constitution.
Instead of being deified by women’s groups and opponents of the Vietnam War (of which I number myself), Fonda should be indicted for treason.
The treachery and malevolence of this woman is a revelation.
A Reader, 5-star Amazon customer review (2002)
Finally! ... A superbly written and seriously scholarly book ... based on a foundation of thorough legal analysis of documented events for formulating what amounts to an indictment of the behavior of a traitor.
The text is fascinating but nevertheless maintains a rigorous adherence to analyses of various data bases.... [It] provides the reader with a fine example of integrated logic and reasoning in what could easily have been a purely emotional treatise that typically characterizes much of the published articles concerning Ms. Fonda’s behaviors in time of war.
M. JM Raffin, Illinois (5-star Amazon customer review, 2002)
There is no statute of limitations on treason. And theres no good reason why Jane Fonda escaped it. Thirty years is nothing. The law is there for a reason.
Whether Fonda is sorry or not is meaningless in the shadow of [the] facts ... in this well-written book. Letting go because of time elapsed is not justice....
Steven B. Connolly, Escondido, CA (5-star Amazon customer review, 2005)
Jane Fondas visit to Hanoi in July 1972 and her proNorth Vietnamese, antiAmerican conduct, especially her pose with an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down American planes and her propaganda broadcasts directed toward American troops, angered many Americans. In their eyes, she was guilty of treason, but she was never charged by the American legal system. Instead, she has made millions, been the recipient of countless awards, and remained an honored American icon.
This work investigates Fondas activities in North Vietnam and argues that she could have been indicted for treason, that there would have been enough evidence to take the case to a jury, that she could have been convicted, and that a conviction probably would have been upheld on appeal.
It also considers Fondas early life and the effect it had on her behavior and beliefs in her later years, her audience of American POWs who were forced by the Vietnamese to listen to her broadcasts condemning them as war criminals, her arrival in Vietnam and how it was viewed by American servicemen and civilians, the crime of treason throughout history, and the only Congressional inquiry into her actions, which resulted in the governments decision to take no legal action against her. Texts of Fondas radio broadcasts to American servicemen comprise the appendix.

Her first apology was in 1988 and was made when here line of personal exercise tapes stopped selling.
This apology is because she has been out of work - in the decade of the 1980s she made just seven movies. In the 1990s she made just one. In the first decade of this century she made 4, 2 of which were documentaries. A total of 12 movies in 30 years. Kind of puts her outside the Hollywood “A” list don't it?
apology NOT ACCEPTED
Really the only one she needs to prove that she is sorry is God. Hopefully she has made peace with him because if not then she could end up in Hell. If God forgives her, that is what matters.
Must be time for her annual “I need work” fake apology. Thanks islamisasataniclie.
She should have been tried for treason years ago.
Is there a statute of limitations for treason?
She gave one or two good performances (Klute & They Shoot Horses) and then backslid into repetitious, pious, politically-correct roles that eroded her talent. By the time she quit to marry Ted Turner, she was unbelievably bad. The art of acting must be studied continually. Going off and becoming a traitor does not a great actress make.
Why is “Front Page” helping with the lie by using such a headline? It has been pointed out previously that she has not actually apologized; she has merely expressed regret for that photo because of the long-lasting — and much deserved — grief she has gotten over the years because of it.
According to Barbra Streisand, Fonda only had a career because Streisand turned down all of Fonda’s roles first!
The headline is really deceptive. She did not apologize in the article. There is nothing close to an apology in the article except for her saying she should not have sat on the anti-aircraft gun. The rest of her trip, including making the trip, she stands by, says she is proud of.
God forgives, I don’t.
“Yes indeed, this here’s the cemetery where they buried Jane Fonda,” said the watchman. “Her grave’s not hard to find, it’s beneath that big pile of human excrement. Some years ago, a generous donor put up a scaffold with a toilet seat on it, and some days there’s quite a line, so it’s good you’re here early. It’s the only one like it, outside of the John Kerry pile in Boston.”
