Jane Fonda, Sex Guru for Teenagers?
Townhall.com ^ | March 7, 2014 | Brent Bozell

Posted on 03/07/2014 4:29:28 AM PST by Kaslin

If a teenager were zipping around Amazon.com looking for "a reliable guide to the turbulent physical and social transitions of adolescence," would that child want to first consult a 76-year-old grandmother who's had three unsuccessful marriages?

This is a question that must never be asked if the unexpected author of the sex-and-relationships guide is Jane Fonda, an icon to liberals everywhere. Even Michelle Obama recently oozed to People magazine that Fonda was her role model for what she wants to be in her 70s, "a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman."

Fonda drew the same worshipful attention when she showed up on TV shows to promote her new book "Being a Teen: Everything Teen Girls & Boys Should Know About Relationships, Sex, Love, Health, Identity & More." She's an adult role model, a wise coach for America's youth. The Hanoi Jane who spit on our soldiers serving in Vietnam and sat behind an anti-aircraft gun that shot at our planes is long gone.

On NBC's "Today" on March 4, co-host Matt Lauer embarrassed himself pandering to the author. "I don't want to make it sound like you're old, because you're not old," said Lauer. "I am old," Fonda admitted, underlining the obsequious treatment she receives. Fonda said she didn't know enough about sex when she was a teen, and didn't know enough to teach her own children when they were teens. Suddenly, she's found all the answers.

Some of her book's message is sensible, even simplistic, but in an age when simple truths are so elusive, it's refreshing. Fonda emphasizes the need to resist a peer-pressured rush into sex. Ah, how nice. But there it ends. If the teen is ready and willing, it's a different life lesson. Now the emphasis turns to the usual libertine message pushing buckets of contraceptives and an end to any moral "hang-ups" about hookups: "Your body is not to be feared, nor should you feel shame or guilt about it, no matter what." She says teens feel shame about their bodies because America is "very puritanical on one level, and yet there's a lot of sexuality in the media."

Ought that last part have been a focus of the discussion? Not in a thousand years. It is a given that sexuality in the media will never be part of the discussion on NBC's "Today" if the parent company is responsible for the reproachable product, and never mind that this network is a relentless button-pusher of sexuality, especially when millions of impressionable children are watching. Ought that not to have been a focus of the interview? Fonda wasn't about to bite the hand that pets her and tells her she's not old.

Next, she appeared on ABC's "The View," where Barbara Walters oozed about how difficult her childhood was and the co-hosts competed to see who could proclaim they admired her more. Sherri Shepherd said Fonda was her "she-ro."

In 2012, Fonda boasted that she'd found the best, most fulfilling sex she'd ever had in her life in an unmarried relationship with music producer Richard Perry. Is that the role model for children? But when the ABC hosts asked if she wanted to get married again, she emphatically said "No! Why would I?"

The funniest and yet most challenging moment of that love fest came when guest host and legal analyst Sunny Hostin wondered if the images of sexuality in the book were too graphic. ABC was wise enough to shift the camera lens away from the sexual images Hostin held up -- unlike the saucy situations the Disney-owned network exploits in prime time. So a book about teenage sexuality has content too graphic for children, so graphic that even adults are shielded from it -- and no one found the irony.

Try to imagine how ABC or NBC would react if Sarah Palin decided to write a book about teenager relationships. If they granted her airtime, she'd be grilled about her own life and her daughter with the teenage pregnancy. Or imagine Michele Bachmann and her therapist husband writing such a book. The set would be electric with hostility. Fonda doesn't have to worry about any of that. She-ros never do.

The fact that this traitor is held in such
high regard by the First Lady and the mainstream media is hardly surprising, but still quite disturbing. It is just another piece of evidence that indicates how far we’ve fallen as a nation in a few short years.

Hey, Jane. Remember this chant?

“Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh, The Viet Cong is gonna win.”

Yeah, you and your buddy John Kerry used to attend rallies where the pie-eyed commie dupes would chant that for hours.

You’re rich and famous and the traitor to his oath and uniform John Kerry is Secretary of State.

Only in America.

Enjoy it while you can, because your ideological progeny and their detritus are destroying this once great nation.

I'm thinking of setting up a urine bank for those that think they may not be around long enough. Send me a jar full and I'll arrange future delivery. With that kind of demand we're going to need a plane. Imagine this, only in yellow.

Brilliant idea!

The Piss and Reconciliation Fly-By

Vietnam Veterans and their families and friends sponsored a memorial fly-by at the funeral of Jane Fonda. Intended as a warm send-off for the anti-war activist it also reached out to the hundreds of Fonda's friends and fellow activists gathered at the grave site to show their last respect.

The stately slow fly over circled the grave site several times with loud speakers playing an old James Taylor song whose lyrics were modified. "Shower the people she loved with love..."

Funeral attendees expressed their appreciation of the flight by waving their arms with clenched fists signifying Fonda's solidarity with the Black Panther Movement.

This reporters eyes teared up at the display of affection and final closure. Jim Thompson, a Navy veteran, said, "I've waited a long time for this day. Really provides closure, not just for me, but for all who ever served."

A group of veterans showed up at the cemetery where Jane Fonda was buried, and asked the caretaker where her grave was located. The caretaker said, “You can smell it from here. Just look for the great big pile of poop.”

You only need one answer.

No sex with anyone you're not married to.

“Well, she did play Barbarella, at her peak.”

There was that. She also looke dpretty hotback in the 80’s when she was doing the aerobics thing.

But beyond the movie and aerobics, I can’t find anything redeeming about her.

Ick.

Fonda once alleged that one of her ex-husbands, Roger Vadim, forced her to have threesomes with other women. Obama would probably prefer, something else.
