Jane Fonda -- QVC Axed Me Over Possible Protests (There may be hope for America after all!
TMZ ^ | 7/16.2011 | TMZ

Posted on 07/16/2011 3:20:32 PM PDT by frankenMonkey

Jane Fonda's controversy in Vietnam is almost 40 years old ... yet she claims QVC canceled her appearance at the last minute because of fears of protests from disgruntled viewers.

Jane was supposed to appear this morning to promote her new book, "Prime Time." But Fonda posted a blog on her site this morning claiming QVC gave her the boot because "they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear."

For all you youngins ... Fonda was photographed sitting on an anti-aircraft gun during a visit to Vietnam in 1972. The incident has dogged her for years, earning her the nickname "Hanoi Jane."

In her blog, Fonda went on to say, "Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us."

Emails to QVC were not immediately returned.


TOPICS: Military/Veterans
KEYWORDS: fonda; qvc; traitor
There may be hope after all! (Other than the fact that I visited TMZ.com!) Of over 100 comments posted on the TMZ site, ALL of them blast Jane for being the traitor that she is. And TMZ is mostly read by young 'uns, so maybe they're getting it after all.

Jane you ignorant slut!
Nobody cares that you opposed the war.
What is unforgivable is that you committed treason in aiding the enemy.

I’m lovin’ it.

I’ll bet if someone told her back in ‘72 that this would be dogging her 39 years later she would have laughed.

Who’s laughing now?

Even if that was ALL she did, it would be enough to warrant the shunning she deserves.

Sadly she did much more to endanger and lead our soldiers to death.

We don’t forget, Jane.

There is still a large institutional memory of your intransigent behavior, in the face of peril to our troops. You chose the side you would place your allegiance with, and it was not America.

May that haunt you to your final resting place. But be assured, there shall be no rest.

Ever.

Gee Hanoi Hane, Payback is a female dog, ain’t it?
You see, you trashed us, and now, the penultimate capitalistic organization, QVC, understands that you are TOXIC!
Buh Bye!
And I wouldn’t buy your idiot book for anything.

Jane, I for one will be willing to pay money for the opportunity to piss on your grave.
I wonder if QVC will be selling those opportunities.
Soon I hope.

You raise an interesting point - where can they bury her?
Unless it’s behind locked gates far away from public access, her grave will become a multi-generational desecration destination.

“Jane Fonda — QVC Axed Me “

Jane, I had no idea that you spoke Ebonics! Right on, right on, right on!

By the way, what was it that they axed you?
Did you know the answer?
Inquiring minds want to know?

Probably not.

Maybe someone who was in the service at the time, or someone more knowledgeable than yours truly can help me out with this. I've heard the story that when Fonda made her trip to Hanoi to visit with her comrades (the NVA of course) , she was taken on a tour of a prison camp full of U.S. military personnel. Supposedly she shook their hands and a few of them slipped her a piece of paper with his service number on it. The reason was for Jane to let the folks at home know they were still alive and were captured. Instead Fonda gave those slips of paper to the NVA guards before leaving. The prisoners who tried to get a message out were subsequently tortured.

The question is , is this a true story or is it an urban legend?

It’s stunning that this liberal idiot does not understand the consequences of her actions even after 39 years.

FWIW

http://www.snopes.com/military/fonda.asp

Hanoi’d with Jane

Claim: Jane Fonda betrayed U.S. POWs during the Viet Nam War.

Status: Multiple:

* During a 1972 trip to North Vietnam, Jane Fonda propagandized on behalf of the North Vietnamese government, declared that American POWs were being treated humanely and condemned U.S. soldiers as “war criminals” and later denounced them as liars for claiming they had been tortured: True.

* Jane Fonda handed over to their captors the slips of paper POWs pressed upon her: False

Just called that number, and let the operator know how pleased I was that they made the correct decision and kept that POS (kept it clean on the phone) off the air.

The operator seemed truly pleased that I called and said she would log the comment and make sure it was passed on to the proper person.

ESAD Hanoi Jane!

” her grave will become a multi-generational desecration destination.”

It really doesn't matter where. But I would be willing to donate quite a few inflated American Dollars to be among the first.
Just a thought, maybe plant the old bitch out in the desert, build a shelter around the grave and sell tickets. probably would bring in several millions.
Hell, the gubmint could make the grave site a National Monument and charge folks a dollar two ninety eight for a few moments alone there. Just Janie, you and your full bladder. Line the entrance with Sodypop and beer venders and and maybe pay off the national debt.
Hey, just a thought. Maybe a little out of the box, but.........

Jane Fonda demonstrates all of the aspects of a “child of privilege” who cannot understand that actions have consequences. I am sure that she got a real high out of showing her courage in defying the morality and the military while never overtly paying a price.

On this subject, I will admit to having respect for at least one of the Vietnam Anti-war protestors, Joan Baez. After the reunification of Vietnam under Ho Chi Minh, she came forward to protest it’s human rights violations. In 1979 she helped organize and fund a full-page advertisement in the NY Times, Washington Post and LA Times in which the communists (Vietnam & Cambodia) were described as having created a nightmare.

Jane Fonda quickly responded to say she was unable to substantiate the “claims” Baez made regarding the atrocities being committed by the Cambodian Khmer Rouge. I don’t remember her commenting any further as the “Killing Fields” of Cambodia became more well known as a provable fact.

It was GOING TO VIETNAM and SITTING ON AN ANTI-AIRCRAFT GUN PRETENDING TO SHOOT DOWN OUR OWN TROOPS

Jane’s problem isn’t that she opposed the war. Many honorable Americans did - just like the mess over in the sandbox with Haji. Jane’s fundamental problem is that she is a traitor and gave comfort and aid to the enemies of America during a time of armed conflict. Her efforts contributed to the death and torture of fellow Americans.

Jane should be prosecuted under the Sedition Act.

We all do or say wrong things: sometimes they are mistakes, sometimes deliberate. An adult of good character, when advised of their wrong doing, seeks to verify the truth and, if truly in the wrong, assumes the responsibility for that action and the consequences thereof. They then seek to set things right.

Thank you for letting us know that in this matter, Joan Baez was a responsible adult of good character. Jane Fonda is still a child of privilege.

While (hopefully) they are not of as grievous a nature, I am grateful that my sins of omission and commission have not been as public as Fonda’s. I am eternally grateful that they have been eternally forgiven.

She is a study in contradiction. She says she never did anything to harm this country, but admits she betrayed this country in the pics of her posing and laughing during the war with the enemy. She also was quick to accuse Sarah Palin and others on the right after Giffords was shot. I would call her complaints here suspect at best. QVC made a business decision. She likes to portray herself as a victim. Both of those things are true. I would be suspicious of anything else she said beyond that. She has a problem with the truth.

Slightly off topic and 3 years (or more) too late (and it does have a mention of McCain using Hanoi Jane's talking points):


John McCain ANTI-POW; hated by most, if not all, Republican House members! He is called a traitor by other PoWs!!


Btw, I ran across this from another youtube link posted in the comments section at the posted link above. It is a bit long (10 Min 40 Sec) but VERY informing and all should see it.

Nothing except palling around with the N Vietnamese military during a war where they were torturing our POW’s on a daily basis.
