'Hanoi Jane' Partners with MoveOn.Org
'Hanoi Jane' Fonda is teaming up with a leading anti-Bush 527 group in a bid to register millions of women voters to cast their ballots for her old anti-war protest partner, John Kerry.
Fonda, who called President Bush a "radical ideologue" during a campaign stop in New York City last week, was asked about her latest move during a recent interview with CNN's Paula Zahn, and explained why she's come out of political retirement to back Kerry:
ZAHN: Let's talk a little bit about this partnership you have with MoveOn.org, an organization that has spent tens of millions of dollars to try to defeat George W. Bush. Is it your primary goal to elect John Kerry?
FONDA: Our primary goal is to try to get the 50 million women who are eligible to vote and have not voted to vote. We want the woman's voice to be in the body politic.
ZAHN: But the fact is, Jane, with the vast amount of money that MoveOn.org has spent running ads against President Bush, is there any way you can encourage women out there who would be inclined to vote Republican to come to the polls?
FONDA: We're the majority. If we voted, we would make a difference. We could decide who was elected. We could decide whether the person elected, man or woman, was going to care about and speak to our issues. . . . .
ZAHN: Jane, I find it hard to believe when you talk to these 50 million women out there that didn't vote that you just want them to vote their hearts. You really want them to vote for John Kerry, don't you?
FONDA: I'm not putting myself, nor am I asked to be in either campaign. I'm just saying that I know that if women voted and they voted with their hearts and with their bodies and their souls, that the future would be more safe, because that's where our hearts are.
ZAHN: But you personally, obviously, are more comfortable with Kerry.
FONDA: I'm a Democrat. My father would strike me dead from the heavens if I ever voted for a Republican. Ted could never understand: "You've never voted for a Republican?" I can't do that to my father, who was a yellow dog Democrat. What can I say?
[END OF EXCERPT]
Zahn then broached the sensitive subject of the Vietnam War, which Fonda and Kerry protested together in 1970 and 71, prompting the controversial actress to share her insights into why so many Americans still hate her.
ZAHN: Jane, you have spent a number of years trying to put your controversial Vietnam past behind you. And yet for the last week or so, we have seen a tremendous amount of news coverage on George W. Bush's service in the national guard and questions being asked about John Kerry's service in Vietnam.
What does that tell us about how raw the feelings are to this day about the Vietnam War?
FONDA: It tells us that they're raw. It tells us that we have not healed. We need to heal from this wound, because it's very directly connected to what -- to the new wound. We haven't learned, you know, the lessons of Vietnam.
ZAHN: Jane, you have apologized to the families of Vietnam War vets, saying that maybe you have said some things that you wish you hadn't said along the way. Do you think you'll ever be able to satisfy people to this day who question what you did in Vietnam?
FONDA: No. There's a lot of people who -- who -- it's a cottage industry to hate me. And if they -- if they stop, that might mean that they'd have to look at some things that would question their own identity. And that's -- it's very hard for people to do.
[END OF INTERVIEW]
If it wasn't for her father, she'd have been hanged for treason as she should have been.
I watched zahn's show once for about 5 minutes. She's stupider than larry king. What other media RAT operative would be stupid enough to publicize the long connection between hanoi john and hanoi jane?
She couldn't do that to her father? What a dingle-berry. That's the most unheard of thing I've ever heard of. Who votes for their father? Duh, do you have a brain?,any thoughts of your own? Does she really think the general public beleives a cop-out answer like that? Like I said, What a dingle-berry.
Break out the pic Meek.
Looks like Kerry might actually be related to Licorice with that buck tooth mug of his.
Break out the pic Meek.
Here tis! .....
My thanks to BulletBobCo for the concept of this
pic and to Conspiracy Guy for the captions!
Ah, well, another "life-long" friend of Kerry joins the bash. Think of it, Tonk, the people who are "special" to this guy? Jane Fonda, Michael Moore, Howard Dean, Sandy Berger, George Soros, Jamie Gorelick, all of Clinton's attorneys........Teddy Kennedy.....CBS.....
Really, doesn't this anti-American Move-On.Org (actually where the hell do they want to move on too anyway??)need to be relegated to the same deep sixed hole CBS got flushed into?
John Fonda Kerry...all you need to know about what is the wrong destiny for America.
"This ought to thoroughly tick off every single veteran in this country."
Confirmed. It ticked me off.
IMHO, she just retracted her apology! She is saying that it's better for us to "hate" her, because we can't look at ourselves???? What a condescending little B____!! We, the little - stupid - peons! We - the hypocrates????
Ms. Fonda, it is very hard to accept and forgive people who give aid and comfort to our enemies at any time, but especially during war. You personified the word traitor and you are doing so again. Have you not learned that your anti-American beliefs are not the same as Americans who believe in their country and would rather be dead than help our enemies? Your Fathers Democrat Party was not the Democratic Party you have today. Get a grip and grow up woman, leave the driving to people who can steer in the right direction....our identity is well known, we are Americans.
HANOI JANE: "We haven't learned, you know, the lessons of Vietnam."
You sl*t, you don't have a clue.
Yep.....and don't forget the tan! ROFL
I'm just saying that I know that if women voted and they voted with their hearts and with their bodies and their souls, that the future would be more safe, because that's where our hearts are.
Errrr, if it's all the same to you Hanoi Jane... I am gonna use my FEMALE BRAIN to make the RIGHT choice in voting for the RIGHT candidate. Cottage Industry member who will NOT forget Hanoi Jane's treasonous actions.
Does it not appear to anyone else that JFKerry's eyes are looking at Hanoi Jane and NOT at the speaker?
Or maybe it's just my feminine feelings showing again.
I hated Jane Fonda from the first time I laid eyes on her. When she sold our men and women to Hanoi, I never understood why she was allowed to return to US soil.
She seems to think that being Henry Fonda's daughter provides her immunity to the memories of all of us who lost loved ones in Viet Nam. I refuse to watch any movie that has her in it...she talks as if her dad is God, and that she can't make up her own mind about any subject without consulting his ashes.
She needs to go back to bulemia and move out of this country. I know that if I were a cop in the precinct that she lived, I would request a change to a cleaner area.
As a woman, my memory is long and vivid. She is trying to BS the baker on this one. And Ted Turner was right for dumping her. She is a boil on the buttocks of America. I hope, when she is called before the Judgement Seat, that she can explain her actions to God....
I bet she is at a loss for words...
