Jane Fonda; Enemy of our Vietnam Military and a Traitor
Did I support the war in Vietnam? No, I did not. Would I ever have done what Jane Fonda did to our military men. No, I would not.
This was a war fought on many fronts and one of those fronts was the opinions of the American people. Hanoi Jane" Fonda was called this after she aided, abetted, and sided with the enemy -- North Vietnam! In the above picture she is with the N. Vietnamese and posing with one of their anti-aircraft guns.
Bui Tin, a communist contemporary of Giap and Ho Chi Minh, served as an NVA colonel assigned to the general staff at the time Saigon fell. He had this to say about the media who were serving the left-wing and Soviet puppets the likes of "Hanoi" Jane Fonda and former Presidential candidate John Kerry and now Sec. of State : "[They were] essential to our strategy.
Support of the war from our rear was completely secure while the American rear was vulnerable. Every day our leadership would listen to world news over the radio to follow the growth of the American antiwar movement." He went on to further state that "visits from people like Jane Fonda and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and ministers gave us confidence we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses. These people represented the conscience of America." Well, not mine my friends; not mine!
It was a war or police action that we never should have gotten into, and in the end was totally botched. The command structure and not the troops botched things which again Fonda failed to take into consideration. They did one hell of a job and what was their reward; diddly squat! Death, torture as prisoners, laughed and taunted when they came home and exposed to Agent Orange. Yep, that is really a reward for being drafted into a police action.
But now, despite the bombs, despite the crimes being created-being committed against them by Richard Nixon, these people own their own land, build their own schools- the children learning, literacy- illiteracy is being wiped out, there is no more prostitution as there was during the time when this was a French colony. In other words, the people have taken power into their own hands, and they are controlling their own lives."
This was submitted in the U.S. Congress House Committee on Internal Security, Travel to Hostile Areas. [HR16742, 19-25 September 1972, page 761]
Jane Fonda forgets to tell how Lyndon Johnson escalated this war after Kennedy was trying to shut it down. So she blames Nixon but not Johnson. How very forgetful of you Janie! But you were a liberal type progressive and all of her political finanical donations went to Democrats and that included Obama and Hillary Clinton or special interest groups on the far-left. Of course that included the George Soros-fundere moveon.org.
This does not mean that I supported or agreed with Nixon; far from it. However, to blame it all on him and not mention Johnson in this farce of a police action was totally wrong of her.
She laid for the claim that "Never in the history of the United States have prisoners of war come home looking like football players. These football players are no more heroes than Custer was. They are military careerists and professional killers who are trying to make themselves look self-righteous, but are war criminals according to law!" What a total lying piece of scum she was and still is.
In 1988 she apologized to Vietnam vets and that was after waiting 16 years. Since then not one word and most still despise her as do I. While I and others realize she gave up no military secrets and gave no assistance that we know of, nor did she interfere with our military forces; she did reinforce the propaganda mill that was going on and that of course was not good for our men who were prisoners and those who were not captured and were fighting.
I have no issue with her for not supporting the war but with her tactics and antics that were anti-our boys in the military. She hurt many and the hostility generated because of her words and actions caused many returning military men to feel considerable anguish. She is not the only person who was despicable in this as Walter Cronkite the newscaster did some dastardly reporting on this war also. But this article is not about him, it is about a young, stupid, and opinionated female who spoke falsehoods and manipulated others. I will never excuse her!
