NASHUA Following a community outcry, organizers of a respected women's seminar have retracted their invitation to have actress Jane Fonda speak at the event.
With threats of a possible protest looming, Fonda will no longer serve as the keynote speaker for the New Hampshire Women's Leadership Summit scheduled for June 10 at Nashua Community College.
Last week, several veterans spoke in opposition of Fonda's public appearance in New Hampshire, calling her a traitor and anti-American.
"In recent days, we have heard voices in our community expressing moving objections to the selection of our main keynote speaker," Dr. Annabel Beerel, founder of the summit, wrote in a statement issued Friday. "While the summit encourages public discourse and diverse opinions, we do not wish to cause pain to our veterans. In addition to the many outstanding presenters and panels scheduled, we are working on engaging a new keynote (speaker) for the conference."
"She had accepted," college president Lucille Jordan said Saturday of Fonda. "But the Summit has disinvited her."

I don’t know what she preaches today, but veterans have long memories and I don’t think she has exactly apologized for those years.
Best news I’ve heard in years. Let the old crone rot in hell!
I can’t believe it. I thought this trick only worked for the bad guys. I guess this “Dr. Beerel” can dish it out but can’t take it.
It is sad that they had to speak out.....where is the sound judgement of the Nashua CC?
The best Fonda has done to explain her actions during the Vietnam war were the equally lame excuses that she was against the war and that she didn’t intend to aid the enemy.
She should have been dealt with back when she hurt so many of our honored military.
Still ain't too late as far as I'm concerned.
Once you commit an act of treason as Hanoi Jane did, the public will never ever let you live it down and Jane did it in such an open public display that made the crime of treason even more blatant.
There are ways to protest a war. That wasn’t one of them.
This was true of a lot of clueless liberals of that era, however Fonda sure went to a whole lot more trouble than most of them to be a gratuitous pain to the USA and a help to those who participated willingly in wishing a ruinous communist political system on the Vietnamese people. Kennedy administration bumbling didn’t help either in what might have been otherwise kept a cold war, but we’re talking about Fonda not Kennedy.
When Hanoi Jane did what she did, she should have been declared persona non grata and had her citizenship revoked right then.
When Hanoi Jane did what she did, he should have been tried for treason and executed, by what ever method was in vogue. I believe sparky was still in use.
Citizenship would have been revoked at that moment
"The image of Jane Fonda, Barbarella, Henry Fonda's daughter ... sitting on an enemy aircraft gun was a betrayal ... the largest lapse of judgment that I can even imagine."
Proving that even Jane Fonda can sometimes tell the truth.

New Hampshire, we hardly know you!
“In recent days, we have heard voices in our community expressing moving objections to the selection of our main keynote speaker,”
the ‘moving objections’ haven’t changed over the years, so, what HAS?
Her enemies are using her past Viet Nam adventures to advance right-wing agendas...she is a life-long commie
Saw Jane Fonda in Fayetteville at a KFC.She came in with two giant black bodyguards or lovers,whatever.
She went around trying to recruit GI`s at those FTA rallys
Our Top Sarge told us we had better not attend as there would be CID filming all in attendence.
I said I hope someone throws a rock at her da** a**
A month later I was proud to be in VN and still proud of my service
Still hate the sorry da** bi*** that caused so many American deaths by encouraging the VC
Every penny she made should have gone to our wounded warriors & their families.
