Jane Fonda: I Will Go to My Grave With ‘Unforgivable Mistake’
Newsmax ^

Posted on 04/04/2013 11:55:23 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

I made one unforgivable mistake when I was in North Vietnam, and I will go to my grave with this,” Jane Fonda says on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

The actress and activist made an infamous trip to North Vietnam in 1972 where she was photographed singing with members of the North Vietnamese military as she sat on an anti-aircraft gun.

She was criticized then — and ever since — and says she understands the anger.

Fonda says she knew immediately she had made a mistake and has apologized repeatedly, both privately and publicly.

She told OWN program “Oprah’s Master Class” that the event happened on the last day of her visit. She was tired, she said, and didn’t want to attend.

“I don't know if I was set up or not,” she said. “I was an adult. I take responsibility for my actions.”

The soldiers sang a song and Fonda joined in with her “feeble Vietnamese.”

As everyone was laughing and singing, Fonda was led to a gun site, where she sat down.

“And I was laughing and clapping, and there were pictures taken.”

Why is she turning up the mea culpas now? Ever get the sense that someone is peeing on your leg while they tell you it's raining? She sure as hell enjoys living in the lap of luxury while expousing the virtues of communism. Maybe the grandmother of Hollywood hypocrisy is dying and trying to make amends with a Higher Authority?

No excuses... .. I hope, as I would never pray for her, that her judgement is NOT soon.....that she lives a long and painful life filled with fear, depression, illness, isolation and injuries as did those that defended her freedoms .

God is the only one who can forgive IMO. I won’t .

Till then she and anyone that provides her peace and comfort can eat shit and bark at the moon for all I care.

Trash .... My opinion.

Does she really regret it? As a principle? Or does she just regret the negative publicity it caused?

“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.”

In other words, she is saying there is no absolute truth. What may be true for one, is not truth for another. Everything is relative. She hasn’t learned a damn thing yet.

As well, I thought a salient comment was, “There were no planes, the gun was not operable. It didn’t matter. This is an image that belied everything that I was,” Fonda said.
How very odd, it, “belied” her?? It DEFINED her, she WAS anti-American and pro-VietCong or she wouldn’t have been there! Prevaricating bitch to this day!!

So, how does she explain the notes placed in her hand by American prisoners (while shaking hands) she immediately turned to the NV officers?

Is that certain? Even if it is, she can personally recant and be fine. That’s if there’s an afterlife.

Fools will not know the whole story and forgive her, so that one day in 40 years or so little Billy, long out of college and with his own kids, will say:

“Oh My crazy Grandpa was a wacko right winger back in the days when there were guns all over and America was a colonial empire. Even hated Jane Fonda!”

And little Billy’s son “Mo” will say: “well I love her, and I’m glad they made this beautiful statue of her here in Washington. She stood for peace and justice, like President Obama, Peace Be Upon Him.”

I hope there is. With infinity time and of universe, we’ll see. I kinda assume dead is ke surgery except you don’t wake up. Maybe tough, it’s possible after that you do have something. I think Jesus coming back is taking too long, and he should have given a few direct miracles.

Contact page for this @### who immediately turned over to NVA officers notes placed in her hand by American prisoners, resulting in their torture and in some cases deaths: http://janefonda.com/contact/ Yes, you useless hag, their blood is on your hands, and that blood never washes off.

Why does this insufferable traitor rear her disgusting head out of the ground every so often to upset real America loving citizens? Can’t she just admire her traitorous photo and leave everyone else alone?

Unless this is a prelim for her disgusting appearance as Ronald Reagan’s wife, and she’s trying to wipe the plate clean so people will watch her movie?

She’s garbage . . . may she go to HELL

So, she regrets being photographed.

Does she regret going there in the first place?

Apparently not.

Regret or not, she’s still a traitor, just like John Fraude Kerry.

As she walked away, Fonda says she suddenly realized the pictures would be seen in the United States — and they would not look good.

“There were no planes, the gun was not operable. It didn’t matter. This is an image that belied everything that I was,” Fonda said.

So when she toured the POW camp and the prisoners gave her their social security numbers written on pieces of paper and she gave them to the commandant of the camp that was okay. She has no regrets about that.

BUT..but...but..2DV...lest we forget... what about the personal apologies she penned to each and every POW brutalized by the Commies while she enjoyed their hospitality....and and and the millions she personally provided the POWS AND THEIR FAMILIES, monies they used in order to ease the years of sacrifice they bore for this, the greatest nation in world history...and lastly, but not leastly, there's that HUGE revolving scholarship fund she initiated, the one devoted to our Heroes' and their family's educational needs ...hella..I'VE never seen such philanthropy in my whole life......

Wait! Holy Smokes! Did you see that formation of Yorkshires, just flew by the big bay window on the first floor of the Condo here?

"I made one unforgivable mistake when I was in North Vietnam, and I will go to my grave with this,”

And we will be there waiting to piss on it when they throw the last shovel full to cover you up. Just like a cat does in a litter box. Self righteous pompous bitch.

Tell it to God himself because his is the only judgement that matters now. Maybe that sulfur smell is starting to get your useless neurons stirring. Now all of a sudden you see the light? You'll see it alright, just before the lights go out forever.

Paula Poundstone: “The guy who shot Robert Kennedy Sirhan Sirhan, goes up for parole every year. Once he even told the parole board that if Kennedy were alive today, he would speak in his favor and say,” let him go.”

“What a tough break you know? The one guy who would have supported him, and he shot him.”

The bigger the mistake the longer it lasts. It works that way for everyone. Has she committed any acts of repentance? That would be the first step to putting this behind her.

The problem is that she should have gone to her grave a long time ago for her actions.

Her trip should have begun with a military firing squad.

It will never be enought, you traitor. Only if you suffer throught painful, uncureable cancer and are mistakenly creamated while you are still alive, only to have your ashes end up in the bottom of a hog lagoon, then maybe I will possibly feel for you.

Nah. Not even after that. May you continue to ‘feel bad’ and may you see what we see when you look in the mirror and live the pain you caused so many.

Hey Jane please don’t wait for our forgiveness to go to your grave.

I might be a cynic if I am thinking your latest apology is to promote your latest exercise video or your latest bomb movie..

Maybe you should apologize for the last exercise video that was proved harmful.

You definitely should apologize for your role in Barberela.

Whatever you do Janie don’t go away mad just go away.
