QVC Cancelled My Appearance!! (Hanoi Jane still Toxic,Via JamieWearingFool)
janefonda.com ^ | 7/16/11

Posted on 07/16/2011 11:24:36 AM PDT by SanFranDan

I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, “Prime Time,” about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear.

I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups. And that they did it without talking to me first. I have never shied away from talking about this as I have nothing to hide.

I could have pointed out that threats of boycotts are nothing new for me and have never prevented me from having best selling books and exercise DVDs, films, and a Broadway play. Most people don’t buy into the far right lies. Many people have reached out to express how excited they were about my going onto QVC and hearing about my book.

Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us. I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths.

In this case, they denied a lot of people the chance to hear about a book that can help make life better, easier and more fulfilling. I am deeply grateful for all of the support I have been getting since this happened, including from my Vietnam Veterans friends.

Just like Hillary!, Nanzi, Helen T, and all the other
crones, her inner corruption is eating it’s way out.
I just hope she’s interred in Atlanta so I don’t have
so far to go to show her what a teabag looks like.

Did Jane Fonda Really Apologize for Vietnam? Oliver North Weighs In - April 07, 2005

OLIVER NORTH, HOST, "WAR STORIES": ....
Actually, she's not really apologizing. She has said that she regrets doing this.
I mean, that's like the bank robber saying, "I'm sorry I got caught."

The reality of it is an apology is saying, "I am sorry, I really do apologize for what I did over there, and I'm asking for your forgiveness."
I mean, that's what you and I do with our wives when we say something that we shouldn't have said.
NORTH: And mine too, brother, even after 37 years. I mean, the reality of it is that's not an apology.

Yes, "Poor Jane". She will most likely never conciously realize that as with all of us, her greatest adversary is not "out there", it resides in her own mind.

Long ago this destructive and selfish force told her to gain the acceptance and validation of those around her (the left) by pandering to our external enemies. It told her to insult, degrade and marginalize those who's mission was of the highest order. It didn't allow her to see what a vile act this was as it only sought to nourish, protect and prepetuate itself ultimately at the expense of her very soul.

Now that same force will use all it's power to keep her from ever realizing it's true nature and the true nature of what she has done.

Some who have commited similar acts were able to see the error of their ways and have been able to recognize and largely subdue this force thereby making amends and asking forgiveness from those who they have wronged.

But I doubt she will ever see the need as this enemey is the one that is so close to her she most likely will never be aware of it's existance. It constantly tells her she has done nothing wrong, it is she who is being wronged.

And that is the greatest lie she will ever hear.

Some would describe this force as "evil" but it is known by another name, The EGO.

Please do not interpret these words as an attempt to remove responsibility from Jane for her own actions, it is anything but. As with all of us, this struggle is our's alone and by it's nature it is impossible for it to belong to anyone else.

Was she talking about herself and her extremist liberal pals attacking and organizing boycotts of Sarah Palin?

Jane Fonda selling her book on QVC is like
Marx selling “Das Kapital”.

It always amazes me how socialists want to use the
very system they are in the process of destroying.

I just told my 74 year old Vietnam Veteran husband about this, -— he was stuck in Laos, thanks to Kennedy -— and he said, “Go ahead and order something for Jordie (12 year granddaughter staying with us) from QVC, but tell them why you’re ordering: NO TO TRAITOR FONDA”

LOL.

Interesting picture.

At times the only thing our vets had going for them was their honor - a concept that Hanoi would never be able to comprehend. All she had was her physical attractiveness.

The vets never lost their honor, but her only “asset” is long gone, leaving only a pathetic, ugly shell. That, and the disgrace she brought onto herself, she will carry to her grave.

Unfortunately, QVC carries Montel Williams products. I have a weakness for kitchen products, so that's what I tend to purchase when I buy from them. I have contacted them and told them that I won't watch their programming if Montel Williams will be touting his products. My complaints seem to have fall on on deaf ears.

Lesse: if someone traveled to Germany in 1944 and met with the Nazi government, posed for propaganda pictures with Hitler, and then made radio broadcasts calling American troops "war criminals" and telling them to surrender, what would we have done with such a person?

Sorry, Jane, but you very lucky that you weren't tried for treason and hanged. Don't expect tears from us when you aren't made to feel welcome on QVC or anywhere else.

They canceled her. We should support that move.

TO QUOTE JANE FONDA:
“I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us. I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths.”

Really? This sack of $hit is a typical left wing lunatic who has twisted reality and her criminal behavior into a different story so that she can live with herself and blame those terrible people for spreading myths about her behavior.

Well I have a few points to make to Ms. Fonda.

1. North Viet Nam’s leadership has repeatedly admitted that they could not beat us on the battlefield but that useful idiots such as Fonda and John Kerry and George McGovern would turn the country against the war, and worse, against the U.S. military.

2. As far I see it, lady, you have the blood of a several U.S. marines I served with all over your hands. They were KIA’d while you were doing your thing.

3. I find it disgusting that you are peddling a book about aging and the life cycle. None of those marines, my friends, got to age gracefully because you contributed to cutting their life cycles so very, very short. They were your countryman you misguided twit. They were someone’s son, brother, cousin, uncle, you name it.

4. Has it ever crossed your mind, Ms Fonda, that perhaps there is an after life and maybe some of my guys and many, many others are patiently waiting for you? Don’t forget the countless hundreds of thousands Southeast Asians were exterminated after everything collapsed as a result of your contributed handi-work.

Semper Fi’ you self-absorbed bastard.

Exactly right! My husband has the Bronze Star from Vietnam and attended Berkeley on the GI Bill, the scummy hippies tried to bar students from going to class so he simply took his bookbag and knocked them aside. I’ll never forget those years there and how proud I was of Governor Reagan when he motorcaded past the campus. Fonda is a sexual deviant, a liar and a traitor. She makes me sick, just to look at those smarmy eyes and the craters on her face. Shut up guttersnipe, go where you are wanted (wherever that is). America has NO use for you, now or ever!

"...criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War..."

Still trying to cloak yourself in the mantel of pacifist and antiwar activist? You weren't antiwar. You chose a side. You adopted uniform of North Vietnam, and stood smiling for publicity shots among the AAA batteries and the gunners that shot down our aircraft and imprisoned our men. You were never antiwar. You supported the Vietcong. You are a traitor. Too many photos of you and your little field trip to North Vietnam to spin that away. Ever.

Breathes there the man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burned,
As home his footsteps he hath turned
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonored , and unsung.
