Jane Fonda Thinks She’s Being Censored

By extremist right-wing groups, no less:

(CNSNews.com) – Actress Jane Fonda said in a statement posted on her website today that the QVC television channel cancelled an appearance they had scheduled with her today to promote her new book “Prime Time,” blaming the cancellation on what she called “well funded and organized political extremist groups.”

In the same statement Fonda said, “I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us.”

It always amuses me how celebrities expect to be able to voice controversial political views and then not have it impact their careers. I’m as supportive of free speech rights for celebrities as I am for anyone else, but watching the Jane Fondas and Dixie Chicks of the world play the victim card after their controversial politics ticked off their fans and/or the public in general is just plain silly.

If you’re a celebrity and you speak out on a political issue you’re probably going to shrink your fan base to one degree or another. That’s how this free speech stuff works. You’re free to speak, and I’m free to respond accordingly up to and including boycotting your products, music, movies, etc.

    “It always amuses me how celebrities expect to be able to voice controversial political views and then not have it impact their careers.”

    Exactly right!  Hanoi Jane was a disgrace during a time when thousands of young American men were being killed or incarcerated in POW camps.

      If I had it my way Fonda would have experienced the Big Chill once she came back from Hanoi.

      Why she’s not defecated on every time she opens her mouth is beyond me. She is the “Tokyo Rose” of our times. STFU Jane…we’ve heard enough you brainless, traitorous t**t.

      I can’t wait for news of her departure.

  • mikemc1970

    Please. Like most narcissistic Limousine Liberals, she thinks what she has to say matters. It’s not that anyone is censoring what she has to say, it is that no one really cares what this Marxist hag, who has lived completely in a protected bubble her entire life, has to say. Bit of a difference.

    Celebrities, particularly of the Hollywood ilk, have enormously inflated opinions of themselves.  After the Manson killings many took off to parts unknown (Frank Sinatra, for one) because they were sure they were next on the list and, of course, after 9/11 several Hollywood types were certain that they would be targeted next.

    Fonda has never done anything to hurt our soldiers or to hurt our country!!!  Give me a break!!!
    If by sitting in an anti-aircraft battery in North Vietnam and allowing the communists to use the photo op for propaganda purposes against the United States was not harmful enough, she passed on the slips of paper with the US soldiers names on them to the brutal captors who in turn beat the US captives almost to death.  Many believe that these beatings lead to permanent disabilities and even premature death to the US captives.
    If she has lost potential earnings from her disloyal actions and speech, that is just too bad – I only wish that she would have lost a heck of a lot more.  The best course of action would have been to bring her up on treason charges, convict her, and then she could have had opportunity to serve as much time in prison as those that she betrayed.

      Well said.

      Her photo op in Hanoi was for the purpose of stopping our forces from bombing Hanoi, which made our war effort less effective, extending the war and costing lives, and preventing us from taking out their anti-aircraft emplacements, which also cost lives.  Lots of blood on her hands.

    • NDSuperman

      I’m with you on your thoughts, but I thought you should know that the “slips of paper” bit is untrue.  It’s an internet email hoax.  However, it should not diminish the fact that American service men and women were harmed because of her actions.  For that, she probably should have been hanged.

  • E4bannan

    I hope her liver fails.

  • awfulorv

    She had every right to oppose that war and speak out against it. She had no right to visit her countries enemies, to encourage them, and to make, even a minute of those prisoner’s lives more hellish than it needed to be.  And now, to sell books, and attempt to change her traitorous image, she plays the victim card. Sort of like the death row inmate, hoping for clemency, trying to explain why he kidnapped, raped, and killed the six year old girl.  I aint buying it bitch…

  • Jvette

    I cannot believe, after all these years, that bitch is still unapologetic for what she did during a time of war.

    What is she, 70? She honestly doesn’t believe she did anything wrong?

    She’s lucky to have lived this long and made the money she has made, she should shut up and be grateful she’s still alive and still rich.

      Bill Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist/murderer and Presidential ghostwriter, comes to mind.

        I wouldn’t piss on either one of them if they were on fire!  Not that I have an opinion having spent 18 months over “there” as a combat Marine!

    • Neiman

      She was/is a traitor, she should have done serious prison time and in a less civilized, politically correct company would have been dispatched to spend eternity with Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot! From this Vietnam era veteran, she should have no rights at all in America except to rot away.

      • ec99

        Agreed.  Her great hypocricy was making a fortune through schlock movies in a capitalist society and then lauding North Vietnam’s repressive communism.  If she had spoken out there against them, she would have been executed on the spot.

  • robert108

    The hypocrisy of this complaint is laughable.  The entertainment industry has been censoring conservatives and conservative ideas for at least a generation.

    On the hand, if Hanoi Jane was tried, convicted and sentenced on treason charges, I sure Jimma Carter would have pardon her long ago – one lib taking care of another.

    Maybe she can take a trip to Afghanistan and sit on a Taliban cannon. Then they can behead her.

      Only if she tries to drive a car.

    Jane Who?

    • fredcpa1962

      some nobody. i mean QVC “canceled” her appearance. that tells you something. the shamwow guy will be selling her crap next. whoever she is.

  • Bean Counter

    As beautiful a case of reaping what you sow as I’ve about ever seen. Or, putting it in words Jane may understand a little better, being the elderly commie hippie that she is — karma, baby. And it’s comin’ to bite you on the arse.

    Is there a statue of limitations on traitors?

  • An Old Army Grunt

    When she dies, I’d like to pee on her grave, but refuse to stand in such a long line…

    Perhaps her appearance was cancelled due to the fact no one, absolutely no one, cares one whit about what an over-the-hill, surgically enhanced, traitorous b!tch, has-been “actress”, has to say.  Americans don’t care what Mrs. Ted Turner has to say or write since it’s abundantly clear she is a communist who hates the United States.  Had it not been for the fame of her father (also a communist sympathizer) she would have just been another two-bit actress wannbe, prostituting herself to the money in Hollyweird.

    Jan Fonda needs to sit down and shut up.  I think she is about as lucky as you can get to still be alive and not in prison.  She should have faced a firing squad in the 60’s.  She got more American Soldiers kiIIed than any other one person.  General Giap mentions here in his book and her picture is on the wall of the War Museum in Hanoi.  B.T.Y. So is John Kerry’s and he is just as loved by the North Vietnamese.

  • Noadress

    May I suggest that she relocates to the country that she “have never done anything to hurt” or hurt “the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for [it]” – that is Vietnam.

  • Not Fonda Fonda

    Boo Hoo!!

  • Sgoudeau

    I was in VietNam.  What she did hurt, and I’m not talking about feelings.  Of course, without a doubt, it emboldened the V. C. and Chinese.  We knew that when it was happening, and subsequent proof after we declared victory and hauled butt shows it.  I don’t hate her, but I do hold her accountable for her actions.

    She deserves to be told to shut up and go away by a Vietnam Vet–I would be happy to do so.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Clement/1169952473 John Clement

    But, jane how can we forget about you if you won’t go away?  when she was married to Ted Turner and they had a ranch in Montana they went to a trendy restaurant somewhere up there. they were kept waiting for a long time and she finally pitched a fit asking “do you know who I am?” the owner said “Yes do you know who I am?” she said no and he told her “I amd a vietnam vet so get out of my place”

  • Morganfrost

    She’s not being “censored.”  To be “censored,” you have to have someone care about what you say.  She’s being ignored.  And she can’t stand it.  Heck, I didn’t even know she had a website.

    • A Citizen

      Ignoring a narcissist, is like a silver bullet to a werewolf. But sometimes it’s fun to torment before the kill.
