    A host of celebrities and scientists including Madonna, Robert de Niro and a clutch of Nobel Prize winners have called for radical change in the world rather than 'a return to normal' after the coronavirus lockdowns. Hollywood stars Cate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Marion Cotillard and Monica Bellucci also added their names to the open letter published in the French daily Le Monde. The signatories are pleading for an end to unbridled consumerism and a 'radical transformation' of economies to help save the planet. The movement has been penned and led by actress Juliette Binoche and astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau. A full...

    Jane Fonda claims she received preferential treatment when she was arrested during a climate change protest because she is white and famous. The 82-year-old actress was detained four times last year during weekly demonstrations in Washington. She revealed that on one occasion she spent a night in jail and used her £700 red wool coat to bed down. […] “I’m white and I’m famous and I think orders came down from the attorney general to handle me with kid gloves,” Miss Fonda told Elle USA. […] “There was a woman who was very cold and I loaned her my coat....

  • 1969 Film of Bernie Sanders spreading North Vietnamese propaganda

    In this 1969 documentary of a seditious meeting of communists with the notorious communist and terrorist Walter T Howard CCCP of New York City, we see Bernie Sanders attending a meeting and a filming of a North Vietnamese communist film that portrays the communist viet cong as freedom fighters and the Americans as torturers and barbarians. This and other films were shown by student radicals and marxists as Americans were being killed by the North Vietnamese army and the VietCong and as Vietnamese civilians were being murdered, tortured, buried alive and extorted by the communists and their gangster protection schemes...
  • Kent State to Pay Hanoi Jane $83k for May 4 Commemoration Speech; Ohio Sec. of State Wants Her Yanked, Calls It a 'Disgrace'

    It's hard to believe, but May 4, 2020, is the 50th anniversary of the tragic shooting at Kent State University, where Ohio National Guard troops fired on a crowd of students during a massive anti-Vietnam War protest, killing four students and injuring nine. Witnesses, military and law-enforcement experts, historians, and activists are divided on whether the shooting was justified (that's a discussion for another day), but it appears that Kent State is going all-in on pouring salt in the wounds of America's Vietnam veterans. In a move that surprised many in the Northeast Ohio area and beyond, Kent State President...

    Not only is Jane Fonda, by definition, a throwback but from now on apparently her clothing will be as well: As part of her fight against climate change, Jane chose to wear the long-sleeve, open back dress for a second time after originally debuting it at the 67th International Cannes Film Festival in 2014.Nearly unrecognizable in her cosmetic quest to remain relevant The activist also added a simple, yet powerful touch with her now-famous red coat. Back in November, she declared it was “the last article of clothing” she would ever buy. [liar]“When I talk to people and say, ‘We...

    For every Friday of fall 2019, Jane Fonda was on Capitol Hill, protesting climate change alongside friends like Gloria Steinem and actresses Rosanna Arquette, Sally Field and Catherine Keener. Fonda could spend her time in retirement, enjoying the fruits of an illustrious Hollywood career. Instead, on the eve of her 82nd birthday, she was led out of the Hart Senate Building in handcuffs. She had been arrested for civil disobedience. Since September, Fonda says she’s “lost count” of how many times she’s been arrested. Since October, she had begun organizing weekly protests with the catchy nickname “Fire Drill Fridays.” She...

    Last year, Jane Fonda sold her “eco-conscious” Beverly Hills mansion, with its 7,102 square feet on a 36,000 square foot lot enclosing a his and her master suite, a glass elevator, 5 bathrooms, glass walls, fireplaces, a fountain, a meditation garden, a fully stocked gym, a pavilion with heat lamps, and a huge pool for $8.5 million after she found no takers at its original $13 million sale price. “This was the first time in my 79 years,” Fonda enunciates with the deep pathos of an orphan finally getting a full meal as the camera zooms through the cavernous interior...

    Jane Fonda’s birthday wish was to be arrested during a Fire Drill Fridays protest. Her wish was granted Friday. She was handcuffed and led away from her fellow climate alarmists as they sang Happy Birthday to her. Fonda’s 82nd birthday is Saturday. It was her fifth arrest since moving to Washington, D.C. to organize weekly protests.Ms. Fonda appeared very happy as she was taken away by the police. She even stopped and turned around to say something to her people – the police officer patiently accommodated her – before turning back around and continuing on to the police vehicle....

    About mid-week I realized I hadn’t been assailed with a picture of Hanoi Jane last Friday being escorted away in her red coat, hands restrained by zip ties. Arrested development: week 3I thought I had read she vowed to be arrested every week through the end of the year as part of her principled protest against her latest boogey man, Climate Change. She seemed convinced that doing so would ensconce her in the freedom fighters hall of fame and cement her legacy of fighting for world peace. So naturally I wondered what had happened to her last week. I discovered...

    Actress and political activist Jane Fonda has said that she's not purchasing any more clothes as a way to fight climate change but declined to respond when asked if she's giving up air travel. Fonda attributed her decision to stop purchasing clothes to Greta Thunberg, a youth climate change activist, who has been traveling to speaking engagements by boat due to the carbon emissions from air travel. During her most recent "Fire Drill Friday" climate action protest in Washington, Fonda was asked if she is going to give up air travel like Thunberg but she did not respond. Fonda also...

    Irony has no greater example than this: actress Jane Fonda, who infamously posed with the North Vietnamese Viet Cong during the Vietnam war, now says “climate criminals,” (read: oil company executives and politicians who do not embrace the climate change agenda) should be treated like Nazi war criminals who were given a Nuremberg-style trial. Fonda has been making news of late by getting herself arrested weekly to protest climate change. But now she’s gone a step further; as Karen Townsend of HotAir reports; in an interview with Michael Moynihan on Viceland’s “The Impeachment Show,” Fonda asserted that oil executives and...

    Jane Fonda is leaving quite a trail of over-the-top remarks in interviews these days. She’s on a tear about climate change and she won’t rest until the streets are clogged with protesters. The latest delusional dribble coming from Hanoi Jane is found at Viceland. The show, hosted by Michael Moynihan, is promising to include humor, besides standard interviews and panel discussions. Yeah. The impeachment process is hilarious. The network’s official description of the program says the country is “in the grip of a constitutional death match so grave, so outrageous, and so fast-moving that it’s almost impossible to process...

    In 1972 actress Jane Fonda, the daughter of Hollywood icon Henry Fonda, visited Hanoi, the capitol of North Vietnam. This was not a USO tour to entertain the American military personnel in Hanoi at the time, nor some sort of government goodwill exchange visit. The American military in Hanoi was not in Hanoi of their own free will, and they were decidedly not in need of entertainment, they were more in need of sustainment. America was at war with North Vietnam and the only exchanges at this point in time were the exchanges of gunfire. Jane Fonda chose to betray...

    One of the strangest things about liberals is how they think getting arrested is some kind of achievement. Take Jane Fonda, who, at the tender age of 81, is still ranting about capitalist America ruining the world. Only this time, the issue is "climate change" instead of the Cold War. "Hanoi Jane" infamously sat behind a communist antiaircraft gun in Vietnam in 1972, and today, one could imagine her aiming her big gun at commercial aircraft ruining the planet with their notorious carbon emissions. Naturally, liberal journalists are delighted. On Oct. 25, the Hollywood Reporter gushed over her third arrest...

    It’s Friday so…“Hey! Hey! Ho! Ho! Fossil fuels have got to go!” Thus spake that old fossil and ho, Jane Fonda, who considers herself something of a Super Woman. She has declared global climate change an “existential threat” and I trust she would know.Accordingly she has announced what she likes to call “Fire Drill Friday” because while the “consensus of scientists” has officially changed the name of the “existential threat” to “climate change” we all know it’s really global warming. “It’ll be called ‘Fire Drill Friday.’ And we’re going to engage in civil disobedience and we’re going to get arrested...

    Inspired by the climate activism of a Swedish teenager, Jane Fonda says she’s returning to civil disobedience nearly a half-century after she was last arrested at a protest. Fonda, known for her opposition to the Vietnam War, was one of 17 climate protesters arrested Friday at the U.S. Capitol on charges of unlawful demonstration by what she called “extremely nice and professional” police. Fellow actor Sam Waterston was also in the group, which included many older demonstrators. Now 81, Fonda said she plans to get arrested every Friday to advocate for urgent reduction in the use of fossil fuels. She...

    Jane Fonda has worn many hats during her Hollywood career — model, actress, activist — but apparently she also considers herself a climate scientist. “I’ve been a climate scientist for decades and decades,” Ms. Fonda told ABC News in an interview shortly before she was arrested Friday during a protest at the Capitol in D.C. Despite her “decades and decades” of climate experience, she credited her recent activism to 16-year-old Swedish protester Greta Thunberg, who launched the Fridays for Future climate strikes. “But it was Greta Thunberg, this little Swedish girl holding her sign every Friday in front of the...

    Jane Fonda was arrested Friday as she protested climate change on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building, CBS affiliate WUSA reports. The 81-year-old actress and a group of protestors were participating in her weekly "Fire Drill Friday" campaign. A total of 16 people were arrested at the protest on Friday, Capitol Police told CBS News. They were all charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding. Fonda, who moved to Washington, D.C., to fight against climate change, made a vow to demonstrate on the steps of the Capitol building every Friday through January. Celebrities, scientists, economists and people from impacted communities...

    Jane Fonda, a liberal Hollywood celebrity long known for activism and outspokenness – soon plans to leave Tinseltown and relocate to the nation’s capital, at least temporarily. And according to the Los Angeles Times, the 81-year-old actress (who’ll turn 82 in December) even has a goal in mind: to get arrested. Fonda told the newspaper she plans to spend about four months in Washington for a series of sit-ins and rallies – after getting an OK from Netflix to take time off from her series “Grace and Frankie” with Lily Tomlin.
