Jane Fonda, Steinem Want Rush Fired

Newsmax Jane Fonda, Steinem Want Rush Fired Sunday, March 11, 2012 12:24 PM

By: Newsmax Wires

Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem, two icons of the liberal feminist establishment, are taking aim at Rush Limbaugh in a bid to end the career of America’s most popular conservative talk show host.

In an op-ed written for CNN on their website, the two, joined by Robin Morgan, liken Limbaugh to Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels because, they say, he labels all of his enemies as “sub-human.”

“Limbaugh doesn't just call people names,” they write. “He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the sophisticated propagandist Josef Goebbels, he creates rhetorical frames -- and the bigger the lie the more effective -- inciting listeners to view people they disagree with as sub-humans. His longtime favorite term for women, "femi-nazi," doesn't even raise eyebrows anymore, an example of how rhetoric spreads when unchallenged by coarsened cultural norms.”

Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam By Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer Click to Order The documented case for treason in Jane Fonda’s 1972 visit to Hanoi — including her pose with an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down American planes, and propaganda broadcasts toward U.S. troops.

Trade Paperback: 205 pages Released: 2007 Publisher: McFarland & Company ISBN: 0-784-2729-9

Nelson DeMille's review of Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam

... As a combat infantry officer in Vietnam, I can attest to the fact that Jane Fonda, and people like her, succeeded very well in lowering troop morale.

And as any combat vet will tell you, low morale leads to lowered effectiveness — and that leads to battlefield deaths.

Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer present a well written, well researched, and very logical indictment for treason against Jane Fonda.

This book is not only about the past; it is about the post-September 11, 2001, present.

It is about people who can find nothing good about their country; people who see no moral justification in national defense; people who make excuses for, and who aid and abet, repressive and hostile regimes.

For those of us who answered the call of duty, and who put their lives on the line for this country, Jane Fonda will forever be a symbol of treachery, divisiveness, and cowardliness.

In a way, she got away with treason, but the Holzers' book goes a long way in righting a terrible wrong.

“Limbaugh doesn't just call people names,” they write. “He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets."

They are saying this, of course, after having read the dehumanizing commentary of the left-wing re: conservative men and women....didn't think so....

RE :”But Fonda and Steinem clearly believe that a grassroots effort could bring about such regulation and silence Limbaugh and others like him for good.
“If Clear Channel won't clean up its airways, then surely it's time for the public to ask the FCC a basic question: Are the stations carrying Limbaugh's show in fact using their licenses “in the public interest?”
“Spectrum is a scarce government resource. Radio broadcasters are obligated to act in the public interest and serve their respective communities of license. In keeping with this obligation, individual radio listeners may complain to the FCC that Limbaugh's radio station (and those syndicating his show) are not acting in the public interest or serving their respective communities of license by permitting such dehumanizing speech.
But the three conclude by insisting “this isn’t political.” Rather, they say, Limbaugh is supposedly so toxic that the actual fate of American society is at state.

If only more Dems to repeated ideas like this we could have some real fun with them. Like, I thought Dems want to talk about 'jobs'.

I was going to object to them driving off the Canyon and messing it up with their nasty remains, but if it was in a Volt??? Maybe worth it. On the other hand how long would it take for the old hags to drive across the country stopping to recharge every 30 miles?

It is as valid as obama's birth certificate, maybe more so because the photos were cropped from original photos.

I don’t think it means anything at all. I think it just something she said to fill in dead air while she was speaking. She thought it sounded like “something” and it just rolled off the tongue.

I think a lot of the time she and other agitators say things like this and they don’t even pause and reflect on what they have said.

It’s because they talk too damn much. They love to hear themselves speak and they get paid to do so. They get away with it because they’re speaking to idiots.

More out-spoken Dems like her and Obama’s chances of re-election would be pretty low.

Imagine how something like this could be used if say Pelosi was talking like this.

The separation between media mogul Ted Turner and his wife, Jane Fonda, was prompted in part by Fonda’s stunning embrace of “born-again” evangelical Christianity, sources close to the couple tell WorldNetDaily...

Read the book. The author completely documents through proposed indictments the offenses committed by Fonda against the U.S.

An American Traitor: Guilty as Charged
By Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer
After thirty years of dodging the question and distorting the issue, Jane Fonda has made her case for exculpating the treason she committed in Vietnam. The case fails on every count.

For three decades Jane Fonda obfuscated, distorted and lied about virtually everything connected with her wartime trip to North Vietnam: her motive, her acts, her intent, and her contribution to the Communists’ war effort.

With the aid of clever handlers, she so successfully suppressed and spun her conduct in Hanoi that many Americans didn’t know what she had done there, and, more important, the legal significance.

Three years ago, our book Aid and Comfort: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam (McFarland & Co.), laid bare the incontrovertible facts, applied the American law of treason to them — and proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Jane Fonda shhave been indicted for (and would have been convicted of) treason.

With the recent publication of Fonda’s autobiography, My Life So Far — which, with one minor exception, does not contain a single cited source to support any claim she makes in her text, or any quotation she uses — the woman justly dubbed “Hanoi Jane” makes statements and provides details that inadvertently lend support to every key charge against her.

Especially noteworthy is that she devotes 50 pages of her nearly 600 page book — which spans about seventy years of her life — to the two-week trip to Communist North Vietnam that tarnished her public image forever. One of these chapters is called “Framed” which is a pun referring to the infamous photograph of her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-craft gun and also the characteristically perverse claim of innocence by a defendant whom that same photograph has caught in the act.

Since her conduct in wartime Vietnam continues to inflame Americans — vets harassed and even spat on her during her book tour — and to dog her heels at every turn, one might have expected her to put some substance into her account of this period in her life. Instead, the public is served up with lies that are transparent and omissions designed to bury the truth. ...

Ironic, isn’t she?

She said this regarding a measure of reconciliation that she and some Vietnam veterans had forged together back in 1988.
