On Monday’s Larry King Live on CNN, guest Jane Fonda portrayed herself as a victim of a “myth” that was “created” by “right-wingers” about her infamous “Hanoi Jane” visit to Vietnam to protest the Vietnam War. Without specifying what aspect of the “Hanoi Jane” story she considered to be a fallacy, though the “Product Description” at Amazon.com seems to shed some light on what she was referring to, she claimed that author Jerry Lembcke’s new book, “Hanoi Jane: War, Sex, and Fantasies of Betrayal,” is “about the myth,” and asserted that it is “sad” that some conservatives are “still stuck in the past”:
LARRY KING: Twitter question, King’s Things got a number of Tweets referring to you as “Hanoi Jane.” There’s a new book coming out, get this, “Hanoi Jane: War, Sex, and Fantasies of Betrayal.”
JANE FONDA: Yes, it’s a good book.
KING: You know the book?
FONDA: Yeah, I advertise it on my blog.
KING: It seems to be a book critical of you.
JANE FONDA: No, it’s about the myth, you know, why it is that 300 people went to North Vietnam, people, many people before me, why me, why have they created this myth? You know, when I came back from North Vietnam, there was maybe a quarter of an inch of media about it in the New York Times. Nobody made any big deal out of it. It was created, and some people are stuck-
LARRY KING: By critics?
FONDA: By right wingers. There are some people who are like stuck there, you know, they’re still stuck in the past. I always want to say, “Get a life,” or, you know, “Read what really happened,” you know. The myths are now true.

Referring to people who sometimes protest against her, she continued: “But it makes me sad for these people who are stuck because they’ve not taken the time – if they’re going to waste their energy on hatred, they should take the time in finding out what was really true.”

The “Product Description” of the book at Amazon.com contends:
Hanoi Jane, the book, deconstructs Hanoi Jane, the myth, to locate its origins in the need of Americans to explain defeat in Vietnam through fantasies of home-front betrayal and the emasculation of the national will-to-war. Lembcke shows th t the expression Hanoi Jane did not reach the eyes and ears of most Americans until five or six years after the end of the war in Vietnam. By then, anxieties about America s declining global status and deteriorating economy were fueling a populist reaction that pointed to the loss of the war as the taproot of those problems. Blaming the antiwar movement for undermining the military s resolve, many found in the imaginary Hanoi Jane the personification of their stab-in-the back theories.
Ground zero of the myth was the city of Hanoi itself, which Jane Fonda had visited as a peace activist in July 1972. Rumors surrounding Fonda s visits with U.S. POWs and radio broadcasts to troops combined to conjure allegations of treason that had cost American lives. That such tales were more imagined than real did not prevent them from insinuating themselves into public memory, where they have continued to infect American politics and culture.
Hanoi Jane is a book about the making of Hanoi Jane by those who saw a formidable threat in the Jane Fonda who supported soldiers and veterans opposed to the war they fought, in the postcolonial struggle of the Vietnamese people to make their own future, and in the movements of women everywhere for gender equality.

When asked by host King what she thought of Sarah Palin, after asserting that “she should not be a politician, in my opinion,” and that it is “sad when someone says I’m going to run for office and they can’t answer basic questions, you know, about the world, about what they read, about history,” the left-wing actress concluded that Palin’s popularity “worries me, frankly.”


Wild Thing’s comment……
She can go to hell!!!!!!!!! She should have been taken into custody then executed the minute she stepped back on US soil.
My post from March 16, 2006 ……………….. my Hanoi Jane Encounter.
Here are the transcripts of Fonda’s 1972 broadcasts on Radio Hanoi
November 22, 1970 — During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black

Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:
“I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist,” and “The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam.”

January, 1971: Jane Fonda raises funds for the Winter Soldier Investigation through a series of benefit concerts. Participants include Fonda, Dick Gregory, Donald Sutherland, Graham Nash, David Crosby and Phil Ochs. Fonda is named Honorary National Coordinator of the event.
February 16, 1971: Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland form “FTA” (F*** The Army), an anti-war, anti-American road show that tours near Army bases in order to undermine troop morale. Skits and songs portray American defeats, soldiers refusing to fight, and the murder of officers by their troops. FTA cast members mingle with soldiers after the shows, encouraging them to desert or to sabotage the Army.
In July-August 1972 Fonda made her infamous trip to North Vietnam. By this time, over 50,000 Americans had been killed in the war. While there, she posed for pictures on an anti-aircraft gun that had been used to shoot down American planes, and she volunteered to do a radio broadcast from Hanoi. She made approximately eight radio addresses, during which she told American pilots in the area:

“Use of these bombs or condoning the use of these bombs makes one a war criminal … Examine the reasons given to justify the murder you are being paid to commit … I don’t know what your officers tell you … but [your] weapons are illegal and that’s not just rhetoric … The men who are ordering you to use these weapons are war criminals according to international law, and in the past, in Germany and Japan, men who committed these kinds of crimes were tried and executed.”

Fonda also quoted Ho Chi Minh during some of these broadcasts. She referred to President Richard Nixon as a “new-type Hitler,” and advised South Vietnamese soldiers to desert: “You are being used as cannon fodder for U.S. imperialism.”

These radio addresses were aired repeatedly by the North Vietnamese Communists.
Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas:
“We’ve got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the

transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition …… We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It’s not organized but it’s mutiny, and they have every right.” –Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971

From 1972: “I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman.”

Lynn says:

She fired shots at our boys in the air! That’s why she’s a traitor! It wasn’t right wingers, it her own actions, but the looney left just have to blame someone else for all the bad stuff they create. She is so anti-American, she reaks. I don’t watch her movies or her exercise videos or read her books. Why should I? She’s an evil, vile, crusty old bag lady.

TomR says:

Hanoi Jane and Hanoi John(Kerry) are hated characters. Both think of themselves as heroic, but they are just traitors. Kerry found out in his presidential bid how many people despised him.
I am one of those “stuck in the past”. Some GIs in Vietnam had no future because of Jane Fonda’s aid and support of the enemy. I will stay stuck in the past and hate this bitch until I die.
Jane Fonda may promote socialism, but she damn sure doesn’t live it. She was born into wealth and has not turned her back on it. Damn Jane Fonda.
BTW, what ever happened to her veggie powered bus protest against George Bush??

Jack says:

Thank you Chrissie, Tom has said it very well for me, never forget, never forgive.

Mark says:

Hanoi Jane trying to blame the “Right-Wingers” for her well deserved reputation as an anti-American pro communist is the same as obama trying to claim he’s not a socialists. Just look at the people they surround themselves with. All communists. Jane Fondas “Bush” did it moment.
The pictures taken of her sitting in that Russian made Anti-Aircraft gun turret certainly was not photo shoped, and the pictures of her at the POW camps were not photo shoped.
Chrissie mentioned a whole host of other atrocities in her post about this whore Fonda and they are all true. Like Tom says like every other left wing commie here in American, they live high off the hog while trying to pormote Communism for the rest of us.
She visited a POW camp and she talked to some of the prisoners one of them tried to pass her a note thinking she was on their side. She promptly handed it to a guard, later the pirsoner was beaten for his act of disobience.
Fonda and that scumbag Kerry worked together to get our own troops killed. These two sons of bitches should have been tried and hanged for Treason 40 years ago.
Every single thing about this son of a bitchi s true. Right Wing Myth, my ass.

Avitar says:

Hanoi Jane can only set foot on American soil because of Jimmy Carter’s blanket aminsty for the Vietnam peace crimes.

Anonymous says:

Myth? The person who created it by going to Hanoi herself is just trying the Jedi Mind Trick on us.

Thomas Jackson says:

Fonda has always been a loon and worse than something you step on during a hot summer’s day. Very nasty, and hard to scrap off your shoe.

Wild Thing says:

Tom,LMAO good one, I wonder too what happened to that veggie bus of hers. hahahha She is nuts among other things plus a full communist as well.
Thanks everyone. Yes she uses the word Myth, sheesh!
