Jane Fonda was know for her humanitarian work during the Vietnam war. Specifically the work she did in Asian Countries. She was often spotted with enemies of her own country the United States of America and found herself to be in the center of political controversy when these photos surfaced. As Americans began to circulate these photographs her reputation was completely obliterated with millions of loyal American fans. Many felt her actions were a sign of treason against her own country and felt she should be punished.
Despite the outcry against her charges against Fonda were never formally filed and she was only found guilty in the court of public opinion. However, these photos recently surfaced again when a former trump advisor brought them up on Fox News and reminded all views of the 1972 treasonous events.
Stephen Miller a former white house advisor for the Trump administration came out against Fonda during the recent segment in response to her recent public appearances.
One of the pictures shows Fonda straddling an anti-aircraft gun that was well known as a weapon used against American pilots during the Vietnam war. Many felt this picture to be in poor taste and insensitive to those who lose their lives fighting for her own country to these weapons.
Fonda is been reappearing in the media more and more lately to criticize former president Trump and to convince President Biden to cancel Trumps pipeline plans that he had ordered while he was in office.
Now her political rivals are turning to fox news to voice their concerns over Fonda’s many public outbursts.
“What she did in the Vietnam War… people may have forgotten this,” Miller said of Fonda. “She volunteered herself as a tool of North Vietnamese Communist propaganda. She did North Vietnamese propaganda broadcasts on their radio station.”
“She sat on their anti-aircraft battery that’s used to shoot down American planes and American airmen. This is by any definition, and I am going to use the word, what she did is treason. And she was held up as a hero?”
Fonda did in fact apologize to American hero’s after the photos surfaced but many feel it was just about her own ego and career and that she didn’t really care to apologize. To this day she says she does not regret any of her anti-war activism during the Vietnam War era.
“I was trying to help end the killing and the war, but there were times when I was thoughtless and careless about it, and I’m very sorry that I hurt them,” Fonda expressed to Barbara Walters during an interview in 1988.
Now she is back in the news trying to tell President Biden what to do about the Trump Pipeline plans. She says Biden needs to do more to stop an environmental disaster from happening that will have a negative effect on our children’s future and the planet.
“We’re very, very grateful for what he’s been doing. He’s done a lot of very good things. But not enough. Not bold enough. And not fast enough. We’re up against time,” She stated
“The scientists say we have less than nine years to cut our emissions in half. Line 3 is going in the absolute opposite direction, and the news every day is telling us, emissions are going up, not down.”
“So we have to put our bodies on the line and do whatever we can to get our administration to call a halt to these permits,”
