What a great day. Today, I got a chance to exercise righteous anger at America's greatest recent enemy of freedom and character: JANE FONDA.

Jane Fonda was appearing at the Eugene Oniell Therater today, in a play entitles 33 variations, or something like that.

She had a couple of no-name-recognition players on the bill outside with her, so I cant tell you who they were, I just dont remember.

Anyways, I got there with other GOE persons like Dan Maloney and a few other genuine Vietnam Veterans who served in II CORPS in VIetnam as Soldiers of our finest American Army.

As time went on, the Air Force was represented along with our Navy with a Korean War veteran.

The audience hearing our presentation was the line of attendees of Hanoi Jane's play: the customers. They were a captive audience and heard our comments well, since they were across the street and I waited for each bus to go by to make our presentation.

The captive audience of brain dead liberals who attended the Traitorous Jane Fonda's play were reminded of the treason of Jane Fonda;

to include the actions of Jane sitting in an anti-aircraft cannon while posing for film for the French news crews,

the actions of the North Vietnamese in invading South Vietnam and killing over 1,000,000 people in 1974 and 75 because American Anti-War groups caused American foreign policy to change and not support South Vietnam if invaded after the Paris Peace Accords;

How American foreign policy was changed in general after Vietnam;

how North Vietnamese General Vo Nyguen Giap admitted he counted on the American Anti-War movement for suypport and encouragement to continue fighting the war against Americans in Vietnam;

how over 3 Million Vietnamese people fled in little boats to escape the North Vietnamese onslaught and Jane Fonda never took any of them in her home for protection

etc...

In general, The brain Dead liberals who went to her show were exposed to the truth

What is also important here, is the complete support we had of the NYC Police department in keeping the various moonbats from crossing the street and starting violence as some tried.

Henry Fonda tacked mostly left in his young adult years, but never as far left as his starring role in The Grapes of Wrath might imply. By the time his daughter was embarrassing herself and her family on the world political stage, he had tacked quite a ways back to the commonsense conservatism of his Nebraska youth. He once said to Jane, according to her own report, that he no longer believed the leftist vision of the world, and thought communism was specious nonsense, or words to that effect.

I think a good part of Jane Fonda's acting out over the decades is a manifestation of a deep electra complex, a psychodrama more about her own family than about any honestly and competently held political beliefs.

Still, Fonda maintained that Kerry's attempt to spotlight alleged U.S. war crimes in Vietnam was a patriotic act. "How can you impugn, how can you even suggest, that anyone like Kerry or any of these veterans were not patriotic?" she complained to CNN. "He was a hero there."

She didn't help him with that statement.

Question: Senator Kerry do you still stand by your comments that American soldier's committed war crimes in Vietnam......Ms. Fonda says you do.

Still, Fonda maintained that Kerry's attempt to spotlight alleged U.S. war crimes in Vietnam was a patriotic act.

FWIW From IMBD Biography

"He was one of the most active, and most vocal, liberal Democrats in Hollywood along with Robert Ryan and Gregory Peck. He once said that President Ronald Reagan made him "physically ill", and that he "couldn't stomach any of the Republicans, most of all Richard Nixon.".

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000020/bio

Don't know if any of the above can be believed. Many quotes can, and have been attributed to those who are deceased and proving their accuracy, or inaccuracy, is not always easy.

Congratulations on a job well doen.

May I ask a question?
When the libs protest someone like Ann Coulter they go in to the venue and stand and scream and disrupt.
Was that an option?
Raise hell, get arrested and maybe some press for yor efforts.
When the libs do this kind of stuff nearly always the case gets thrown out of court.
Course this being a conservative cause it may get ya hard time in N.Y.

Perhaps I should qualify my remarks to agree that Fonda stayed liberal all his life, but rejected the hard left views of his young adulthood by the time his daughter became an activist.

I do recall distinctly, though, that Jane Fonda, at a time when she was going on talk shows saying things like, “If the American people only understood what communism was, they’d accept it joyfully,” quoted her father as saying something like, “I’ve thought about what the communists claim, and I just don’t buy it.”

Still telling troops to f themselves in the video Race posted above.

I like how they noted her quote in all the articles where she says her lapse in sanity will haunt her until the day she dies. That’s fn’ rich, bitch.

Who is she kidding? The only thing haunting her is the lack of good publicity.

Vietnam troops, and those afterward who have been spit on and disrespected, are haunted by far more than she in her elaborate imagination could ever imagine.

November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:

"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam."
http://www.wintersoldier.com/index.php?topic=Timeline

Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas:
"We've got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition ...... We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It's not organized but it's mutiny, and they have every right." --Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971

From 1972: "I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman."

January, 1971: Jane Fonda raises funds for the Winter Soldier Investigation through a series of benefit concerts. Participants include Fonda, Dick Gregory, Donald Sutherland, Graham Nash, David Crosby and Phil Ochs. Fonda is named Honorary National Coordinator of the event.

February 16, 1971: Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland form "FTA" (F*** The Army), an anti-war, anti-American road show that tours near Army bases in order to undermine troop morale. Skits and songs portray American defeats, soldiers refusing to fight, and the murder of officers by their troops. FTA cast members mingle with soldiers after the shows, encouraging them to desert or to sabotage the Army.

Rare Screening of Restored Archival Print of Classic Vietnam War-Era Documentary

What: Screening of FTA
When: Monday, February 2, 2009
7:00pm, 9:15pm
Where: IFC Center (map)
323 Sixth Avenue
New York, NY, US 10014

With Former FTA Cast Member Jane Fonda in Person
Monday, February 2 at 7:00pm and 9:15pm
7:00pm show sold out!

FTA (1972, Francine Parker), the Vietnam War-era documentary, will have an ultra-rare screening in a restored archival print with former FTA cast member Jane Fonda in person, Monday, February 2 at 7:00pm and 9:15pm; the 7:00pm show is sold out. Following the screening, Ms. Fonda will talk about the film and her work in the controversial antiwar touring show in a discussion moderated by David Zeiger, director of the recent documentary Sir! No Sir! A portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Iraq Veterans against the War, a nonprofit organization that advocates for ending the war and for providing support to returning service members.

Virtually unseen in any format since a brief theatrical run in 1972, FTA documents "the show the Pentagon couldn't stop." The revue, whose letters were said to stand both for Free Theater Associates and also Free (or, at times, another F-word) The Army, brought antiwar entertainment to military personnel at the height of Vietnam. Performers like Ms. Fonda, Donald Sutherland and Holly Near toured towns near military bases around the US and overseas, lending their support to troops who opposed the war. The film follows the troupe as it travels and performs near US military bases on the Pacific Rim -- Hawaii, Okinawa, the Philippines -- encouraging opposition to the war among the rank-and-file of US forces.

FTA is a gritty mix of rollicking performances and GI interviews, juxtaposing lighthearted political satire with the somber realities of war, occupation, and the absurdities of military life, a barbed rebuke to the staid USO program. From Okinawa to the Philippines, stirred by the show's provocative message, the members of the U.S. military find courage to speak out candidly in front of the camera.

Fonda and Sutherland are joined on stage by an all-star cast of musicians and activists including folk musician Len Chandler and comedian Paul Mooney. A fresh look at the Vietnam anti-war movement through the songs and skits that shook a generation, this film will leave you singing along with the fired-up men and women of the military. Foxtrot, Tango, Alpha... F*** the Army!

Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.

Tickets: $12 IFC Center members, $15 general admission.
