Jane laments
The Washington Times ^ | July 28, 2011 | Jennifer Harper

Posted on 07/28/2011 8:33:51 AM PDT by lakeprincess

Alas, poor Jane. When home shopping network QVC canceled a July 16 appearance to promote “Primetime,” her new book on aging, Jane Fonda took to her blog, complaining that the broadcaster had capitulated to “well funded and organized political extremist groups” still unhappy with her 1972 visit to North Vietnam.

Miss Fonda, 73, then posted a 4,200-word entry titled, “The Truth About My Trip to Hanoi”

Didn't the Dem controlled Congress capitulate to well funded and organized political extremist groups when they cut funding to Saigon in 1974/1975? Wasn't Jane part of those groups? Isn't what's good for the goose also good for the gander?

My family offers a product that was sold on QVC for about 5 years I cannot help but think that QVC not only look at the bad image this projects they probably thought the product was lame.

Jon F’n Cary himself said nothing bad happened in Viet Nam after we left.

Jane has learned the lesson that there are consequences to one’s actions, even for liberals.

She chose to go consort with the enemy in Vietnam. She chose to go and give aid and comfort to the enemy. She is lucky she was never prosecuted for treason, but that’s another story.

But Jane has learned, that even after almost 40 years, many are angry at what she did. As a good liberal she can say she had the best of intentions and all that.

As all of us have to do, she has to live with the consequences of her life choices. She chose to go to North Vietnam. We chose to protest her actions, boycott her products and movies, etc.

Liberals have no problems with boycotts and protests against those with whom they disagree. It cuts both ways. Our constitutional rights are not only for liberals.

She somewhat reminds me of my ex-wife. A determined gardener, she was mowing the yard, and ran over the end of a ladder instead of avoiding/moving it. A stupid act. I heard the bang, and asked "Why?".

She got extremely mad at me for asking the question.

It’s such a shame that this beyotch couldn’t, just once over these long long years, honestly and genuinely apologize for her treason and then slink away to not be heard from again.

If I were king, I’d have executed her long, long ago.

‘QVC caved to Conservative interests’???

Jane...you stupid hag, you are TOOOO old to ONLY NOW be learning how the world works!

You were arrogant and dumb as dirt permitting the enemies of YOUR COUNTRY to do more things with you and your name than a monkey does with a peanut!!!

NOW you are paying for your shameful conceit and pathetic stupidity!

QVC makes it’s money based on the purchasing power of millions of decent hardworking Americans, including me.
I considered sending them a note of protest but never got it done. I’m glad others did.
Organized protest groups? I doubt it.

There are some things you just can’t change by saying I’m sorry. Or did she even say it? I didn’t read her stupid thing.

God will probably forgive her, but I won’t.

Actually, she’s been half-apologizing since the late 1970s - when people were trying to boycott her stupid videos that asked you to “feel the burn.” When doctors were shocked with this bad advice, she had to backtrack yet again - a lifelong activity that you think she would pick up on and try to change.

And who is she to decry boycotts? If memory serves accurately, she used to come out quite regularly against lettuce producers in California when Mr. Chavez was leading the way with HIS boycotts. And as a Jane-watcher, I remember her trying to boycott Frito Bandido chips because the little cartoon character was raaaaaaaaaaaaaaacist.
For anyone who is amused by watching train wrecks, fires and car accidents, Jane is the gift that keeps on giving.

If Hanoi Jane fell on the ground bleeding to death in front of me I’d giggle my a$# off!

You’ve got me thinking of Jane Faux Pas - an hilarious compendium starting around 1970. Her appearance on Dick Cavett circa 1972 when she declared that we won the War for Independence without foreign help. Mr. Cavett had to remind her about the French and Poles...

She’s had breast enhancements followed by breast reductions, jowl removals (I suspect followed by jowl replacements). She also sometimes wears a very bad wig. I saw her in person once and the wig was very obvious. She also talks REALLY LOUD.

IMHO after her diatribe about QVC if it truly was a scheduling conflict like they said it was then I’d think she shot herself in the foot about ever being showcased on air? Don’t bite the hand that feeds...

Ha!! She picked the wrong guy to try THAT with. Whatever you think about Mr. Cavett, he was one smart guy and a razor sharp interviewer!!

It is funny, but I have never in my life spoken to ONE SINGLE Liberal who had even a passably functional grasp of confirmed and documented historic fact. NOT ONE! Sooner or later they all give them selves away for the complete automaton half-wits they all are.

What is really odd is that, what they don’t ‘get’ is stuff I have known since I was 9 years old. All of it may be readily authenticated and none of it is privileged information… but you’d think so, the way they respond to you correcting them.

They are really too stupid about this stuff.

I couldn’t agree with you more. I, too, have almost never met a lib who knew anything about American history except stupid things they’ve picked up from Howard Zinn.

I recently had to tell a crazy leftist NYer that New York City - during the Civil War - was a Confederate stronghold due to Copperhead politics. She thought that since NYC was historically a Democratic state it was PRO CIVIL RIGHTS during that period. She knew nothing about the Draft Riots. I wanted to slap her stupid face.

‘Mr. Nolte continues, “Something we’re not as forgiving about, however, is the betrayal of our country or the appeasing of an enemy. Fair or not, this is something that will forever haunt the legacies of Joe Kennedy Sr. and Charles Lindbergh. And so it will with Jane Fonda.”’

How does John F. Kerry skate on this? For God’s sake, he’s an elected official of the United States—who almost became its president.
