This is one of those cases in which I’d love to put on my imaginary pretentious White rapper hat and say, “Crackuh Please.” Jane Fonda is whining that she has paid dearly for posing with the North Vietnamese on anti-aircraft aimed at American soldiers. Quick, call the waaaah-mbulance. In what way has she paid? Did she pay with her life, as many of the American boys she denounced–and at whom she aimed the anti-aircraft–did? Did she pay with any limbs–as many of the American boys she denounced–and at whom she aimed the anti-aircraft–did? Did she pay financially and live a life of suffering and want, wondering where she’ll get money to put food on the table as many of those who returned from Vietnam did? Was she spit on and treated like crap the way they were? No, no, no, and no. Nope. She never paid in any way. She lived the good life and laughed all the way to the bank and the aerobics video studio. If she’d been executed like the Rosenbergs and Bin Laden, THEN she would have paid enough. But, sadly, she’s still here living “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” And yet, we gotta read this BS:
Jane Fonda will always regret the controversial 1972 photograph showing her sitting on a missile launcher aimed at U.S. soldiers, insisting she has “paid heavily” for the infamous image.
The veteran actress caused outrage in the U.S. and earned the nickname ‘Hanoi Jane’ when she was snapped sitting on an anti-aircraft battery in Hanoi during the Vietnam War.
Fonda admits the backlash hit her hard and has affected her ever since, and she will always chastise herself for the image.
She tells Britain’s Hello! magazine, “In 1972 I was photographed, laughing, sitting on a North Vietnamese missile launcher aimed at American soldiers, without realizing what I was doing. I paid heavily for that mistake, and am still criticized for it. I’ll go to my grave with regrets about that picture.”
So sad, too bad. Or as Debbiness (my newly-invented stupid White rapper name would say) . . .
She knew exactly what she was doing. It wasn’t a mistake. It was a deliberate action for which she’s never paid. She cannot go to her grave soon enough. And, still, it will be little solace to those who gave their lives in Vietnam and their families who suffered while Hanoi Jane partied with the North Vietnamese and aided and abetted the Viet Cong.
Hanoi Jane, please take a coffee break and drink a nice class of STFU.
