The TRUTH About Jane and John

"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we should someday become communist." -Jane Fonda, Michigan State University on November 22, 1969

Jane in Hanoi Posted by Hello So many young people born in the 70's may only know Jane Fonda from her movies and exercise videos. I was a HUGE fan of hers when I was a liberal Democrat. I thought she was a strong example for young women. I loved the movie "Klute" and even owned a copy of it on video.

I am afraid that most young women today will never know the truth about Jane Fonda because the Liberal media has done such a great job at covering up her visit to the North Vietnamese camps during the Vietnam War.

In the book I just finished reading, "Reckless Disregard" by Robert Patterson, he brings to light the trip Jane took to the North Vietnamese camps in Hanoi and what she did there.

Things Hanoi Jane did while visiting the enemy:

1972- While American armed forces were being killed on the battlefields of Vietnam, Fonda visited Hanoi and had her picture taken sitting among the North Vietnamese. She wore a North Vietnamese helmut while sitting on an anti-aircraft gun pretending to shoot down an American jet.

She made radio broadcasts and films in Hanoi specifically designed to affect morale of the American troops. These braodcasts were used to encourage the Viet Cong as well. She told them to continue their struggle against America.

"I am speaking to the US servicemen, I don't know what your officers tell you....
but [your] weapoms are illegal and...the men who are ordering you to use
these weapons are war criminals according to international law.
In the past,in Germany and Japan, men who committed these kinds of crimes were tried and executed."
She returned home wearing a necklace given to her by the enemy. It was made from the melted parts of an American b-52 bomber shot down over Hanoi. Imagine you are a family member whose loved one was on that plane. And there is Jane Fonda wearing that necklace with pride.
It sickens me.
After returning home, she told the media that our prisoners were safe and being treated fairly. I found this information at this web site:
"When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with her. I said yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs were receiving, which was far different from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as 'humane and lenient.' Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees with outstretched arms with a piece of steel re-bar placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane every time my arms dipped."

"Jane Fonda had the audacity to say that the POWs were lying about our torture and treatment. Now ABC is allowing Barbara Walters to honor Jane Fonda in her feature "100 Years of Great Women." Shame on the Disney Company. "

Fonda's response when the released POW's contradicted her claims:

Fonda said the idea that the POWs she had met in Vietnam had been tortured was "laughable," claiming: "These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed." The POWs who said they had been tortured were "exaggerating, probably for their own self-interest," she asserted. She told audiences that "Never in the history of the United States have POWs come home looking like football players. These football players are no more heroes than Custer was. They're military careerists and professional killers" who are "trying to make themselves look self-righteous, but they are war criminals according to law." []

If you do a Google search, you will find many more of these stories.

So, why am I writing about Hanoi Jane here on my blog??

Because Presidential Candidate John Kerry stood up with Jane Fonda and counted himself among her supporters.

In September 1970, John Kerry joined with Fonda and actor Donald Sutherland (her "Klute" co-star) and many other political and Hollywood celebrities on a so called "rapid American withdrawal" campaign. This lovely event was called the "F>ck the Army" tour, sort of a perverse USO tour. It was performed outside of military bases across the United States. Michael Moore can't hold a candle to Jane Fonda, that's for sure.

On these tours, she displayed disgruntled vets. Sort of like what was seen in "Forest Gump" movie starring Tom Hanks. She was the primary bankroller for Vietnam Vets Against the War, John Kerry's group. She had met with communists in 1967 and began her tirade against the war.

Freedom of speech was one of the many freedoms our soldiers were fighting for then and now, but what Ms. Fonda was doing was aiding and abetting the enemy. It is called: TREASON.

And yet, to this day, she has never been charged. Instead, she has been praised.

And John Kerry, to this day, has never come out and denounced his nor her actions back in 1972. The "Winter Soldier Investigation" was his biggest moment. He and Fonda used this "investigation" to undermine our efforts in Vietnam and to cause uprising here in the US.

It was found later that most of the tesimony of the "Vietnam Vets" could no be corroborated, though, and many were found to be frauds.

In the awesome book, "Stolen Valor" by BG Burkett, it was revealed that the "wintesses" were lying for effect. The documentary film of the proceedings was produced by a man, Al Hubbard, who claimed to be a Vietnam Vet. He had served in the military, he had not been the Air Force officer he claimed to be. Isn't it a federal crime to impersonate an officer??

Kerry and Hubbard went on "Meet the Press" together to denounce the war.

Then there was "Dewey Canyon III" in which many Vietnam Vets marched to the National Mall carrying the Viet Cong flag and other flags supporting Communist countries like Cuba, China, and North Korea. They spilled red paint on the steps of the Capitol. Their star speaker was John Forbes Kerry.

While Kerry was speaking at this event, American servicemen were being tortured in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. Retired rear admiral Jeremiah Denton was one of those servicemen:

"When Kerry joined me in the Senate, I already knew about his record of defamatory remarks and behavior criticizing U.S. policy in Vietnam and the conduct of our military personnel there. I had learned in North Vietnamese prisons how much harm such statements caused.
To me, his remarks and behavior amounted to giving aid and comfort to our Vietnamese and Soviet enemies. So I was not surprised when his subsequent overall voting pattern in the Senate was consistently detrimental to our national security.
Considering his demonstrated popularity during the Democratic primaries, I earnestly hope the American people will soberly consider Kerry's qualifications for the pres idency in light of his position and record on both our cultural war at home and on national security issues.
To put it bluntly, John Kerry exemplifies the very reasons that I switched to the Republican Party. Like the majority in his political party, he has proven by his words and actions that his list of priorities -- his ideas on what most needs to be done to improve this country -- are almost opposite to my own."

Read his entire statement. It is important.

Is Vietnam and that era relevant to what is happening today? Some Kerry supporters will say no. Others will say YES because they compare the War in Iraq to Vietnam. John Kerry himself brought up Vietnam throughout his campaign leading up to the Democratic National Convention ultimately culminating with his speech there. So, Vietnam is once again in the forefront.

I consider this to be a Godsend. All that John Kerry did after Vietnam is more important than anything he did while in Vietnam. He provided aid and comfort to our enemy. He stood alongside and supported (and received support from ) a treasonous woman named Jane Fonda. Americans need to know of his actions before they vote on November 2, 2004.

Had George W. Bush made his 6 year service to the Texas Air National Guard the center of his campaign, then his actions would also be fair game.

John Kerry has done this to himself. He chose to stand up and by Jane Fonda while American servicemen were being killed on the battlefields and tortured by the enemy while they used his speeches for brainwashing.

As J.F. Kelly put it so bluntly..........

"There is no question that John Kerry earned his decorations and that he put his life at risk in the service of his country. There is no doubt in my mind, moreover, that he has the intelligence to serve as president. But there is also no doubt in my mind that his anti-war activities while our troops were still fighting, dying and being tortured in filthy Vietnam prisons were despicable.
For that reason, even aside from his anti-defense voting record in the Senate, he is one ex-shipmate that I could never support as commander-in-chief of the armed forces."

Commander Kelly was the XO of the USS Gridley and commanded John Forbes Kerry from 1967-68.

Know the facts before you vote.

I wonder if there is a statute of limitations on treason. Perhaps she can still be prosecuted...
