Posted on 07/30/2014 6:49:04 AM PDT by Chainmail
Time to boycott Turner Classic Movies all day Friday: they are featuring nothing but Jane Fonda movies all day and including a "Lifetime Achievement Award" segment for her as well. I realize that Jane is Ted Turner's Ex but she is also a traitor to her country who went to our enemy's capitol to broadcast treason on their radio, betrayed her country's fighting men, and returned home to push pro-enemy propaganda. We have never dealt with her as we should have and punished her for her betrayal. Can anyone imagine what would have happened to anyone who had traveled to Nazi Germany during the war, made treasonous broadcasts on Radio Berlin, and then encouraged revolt against our government when he or she returned? Contact TCM and let them know how we feel about this tribute to a traitor.
Just try getting men to boycott Barbarella.
In 2006, the Georgia Senate killed a bid to honor Jane Fonda, an Atlanta resident. A resolution was presented to honor her “post Vietnam” work and was killed 39-1 after a member of the Senate who was a retired Army Officer alertly ensured everyone knew it was on the agenda.
There is racier stuff on the Disney Channel.
Ran across it the other day while scouring Netflix for something to watch. Didn't watch it, but found it humorous that the only Hanoi Jane film available for streaming is that one.
Men tend to drool over her appearance in that one. Was very racy in its time - and silly as hell.
I’d still watch ‘Cat Ballou’.
Oh, dry up and get a sense of humor.
trust me, most of us laughed (and agreed!)
Are they showing “On Golden Pond Scum”?
> Just try getting men to boycott Barbarella.
Not a problem. I have not watched a single Traitor Hanoi Jane movie or TV show since I returned from Viet Nam more than 40 years ago.
Thanks for the reminder. I saw it but forgot. They also make it hard to watch weekend movies with uber lib Ben Mankiewicz as host. I usually record them and zap past him.
they wanted to honor her post Vietnam work?
She was an activist for liberal causes after Vietnam. Even if you ignore Vietnam, she was still a radical liberal activist, not worthy of any honor.
I think she once said it was a mistake to be photographed at the North Vietnamese military installation. But she has never expressed regret for going to Vietnam that I am aware of.
Her movie career hasn’t held up all that well over the years. I always thought she was completely overrated with the exception of her very good performance in Klute. It was all downhill from there.
Weirdly, all of her 1970 roles were offered to Barbra Streisand first (I kid you not!) and the always polite Miss Streisand once turned to Hanoi Jane and said: You owe your entire career to me! History doesn’t say what the equally rude Miss Fonda replied.
Hanoi Jane is a commie traitor bitch!
That's just such a thigh-slapper!!!
She's so funny there playin' BFFs with the NVA!
Wow!!! So hilarious there at the communist rally!!! Slandering America and the US military!!!
I'll bust a gut laughing!
Or maybe not.
She is a traitor who probably should have been trie dfor treason. As a bonus, she’s not a very good actress.
Just because she was a nasty traitor doesn’t mean she wasn’t bodacious in the day, right? If she hadn’t gotten involved with Yves Montand and Simone Signoret (who also destroyed the life of the wonderful Jean Seberg) she might never have fallen into evil. But the Parisian villians were more like the characters in Les Liaisons Dangerouses than ordinary film stars. Then after they wrecked Seberg’s life and made Fonda an anathema, they turned into conservatives!
“We have never dealt with her as we should have and punished her for her betrayal.”
We never dealt with most of the satanic traitorous filth of that generation as we should have, and because of our inaction, we are reaping the rewards of having allowed them to successfully take over our government.
TCM is my favorite channel bar none.
Boycotting Jane Fonda however will be a breeze. Not one of her movies except On Golden Pond is worth a damn. I’ll just watch some recordings.
Your intellectual evaluation of the acting talents of Hanoi Jane astound me.
I’ll watch Nine to Five anytime. Not for Fonda’s sake but to watch Parton and Coleman.
It’s silly, sure, But a decent comedy.
I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE ALLEGED ACTING TALENTS OF "HANOI JANE" FONDA.
I also don't give a shit about how 'hot' she may have looked in a move I haven't even seen. (That, actually, applies to ALL "Hanoi Jane" Fonda movies.)
I find her beneath contempt. See post #7, again, for pictorial representation of why I find her beneath contempt.
Maybe treason doesn't bother you. Maybe you're OK with treason, so long as the traitor is a good actor. I don't know ... but it's not looking very good for you.
It’s definitely worth a call to TCM (a station I do like) to let them know what you think of honoring a contemptible person who did a reprehensible thing by betraying her country and every single man who served in Vietnam fighting communist aggression.
“Bodaciousness” doesn’t now and won’t ever cover up what she did.
Truth be told, she wasn’t all that “bodacious”.
Now, if you’re talking Anne Margaret, or Sophia Loren, same time period, now THAT’S bodacious...
They started out being wonderful.
Now, more and more they’re pushing leftist crap - in their “interviews” and commentary and in their play list.
What a shame.
Boycott this while you watch that. Change the channel all you want- it's still all propaganda. Leftist propaganda, and you support it by paying your cable bills to leftist corporations who control tv.
Boycott TV if you actually want to make any difference.
Starve the media, not the channel.
Even the leftists at Snopes can't really defend her.
"Fake but Accurate" is still fake.
Ted Turner no longer has anything to do with Turner Classic Movies, TBS, or any of those other channels that include his name. He sold to Time Warner years ago and left the board of that company in 2006.
He also no longer has anything to do with Hanoi Jane.
They divorced in 2001.
This “tribute” is the work of some new generation of anti-American Leftists.
“Id still watch Cat Ballou.”
That’s the problem with movie boycotts. She was just playing a part in a very funny movie. That part, indifferently acted, has nothing to due with her character. A lot of ultra progressive actors are good at their craft and their political positions take second seat behind the writer’s character they portray in the movie.
Any movies she dies in?
I’ll watch that one.
You need to lie down in a cool, darkened room and have someone remove your cap lock.
To anyone else who cares, I once had the displeasure of sitting near this woman at a theatrical event in NYC. This was maybe 5 years ago. She wore a dreadful wig and spoke so loudly to her obviously feminista friends that she kept getting odd looks from other people in the room. I don’t know if she’s hard of hearing or just...narcissistic.
Then several hours later, she was called to give an amusing little speech (along with about 1,000 other actors). But Jane had fallen asleep at the dais and when she was finally prodded to the microphone she said: “This is a really weird event.” Once the boos died down, she made some innocuous remarks and plotzed back down in her seat, still looking completely stoned. Poor Master of Ceremonies, Jeremy Irons, then made some funny sarcastic remarks in her direction and we were all released back into the city streets. And that’s my Jane Fonda story.
I’ve boycotted hollyweird since the original Jaws. If everyone followed my lead, they would not exist.
I have checked off most of my bucket list. At the top right now is pissing on Hanoi Jane's grave. I will do everything in my power to live long enough to fulfill that dream. Several of my friends have passed. I am holding jars of their piss to fulfill their dream. Going to be a long line.
Fonda was up to her ears in the “Tailwind” fairy tales that the US attempted to murder deserters in Laos in 1970.
That didn’t work for her either.
Thank you for your service!
The problem is that TCM has run out of live stars to honor so since Jane has made a lot of movies and managed, somehow to steal two Oscars, what’s a cable channel to do?
Now while watching Boris Karloff in The Mummy last night, this obviously COMMUNISTIC cable channel managed to have a lovely tribute to Grace Kelly. I couldn’t figure out who was doing the voice over until the very end when it turned out to be her son, Prince Rainier. Wow, great tribute to a stupendous beauty and a fine actress.
Now Jaws was a communist movie???
I was watching the thread the day that pic was created by registered. Kerry and Fonda were both there that day but not at the same podium at the same time. All heck broke loose shortly after.
What about lesie lilly?
We don't 'drool' over her ... we're lined up to water her grave.
And we don't find her the least bit amusing. We don't find treason in general the least bit amusing.
And to be perfectly frank, Missy, we're not all that impressed with actors, or theater people, or their assorted hangers-on.
9 to 5 is good comedy. The series wasn’t that bad either.
I have nearly said all that I think I need to say on this topic, so I'll probably move on.
You are a big, humorless bore and I am probably much older than you so stop with the dopey “young lady” junk.
And for all of you lining up with a full bladder, try to think it through: she’s gonna be cremated and probably have her ashes thrown in Ted Turner’s face. Or Tom Haydon’s. Or Roger Vadim’s. Or her poor daughter who is already on record about what a lousy mother she was.
I never watch Jane Fonda movies anyway
Ummm...why boycott? Just don’t watch that crap.
