Hanoi Jane

Jane Fonda is upset.
   "I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, “Prime Time”, about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear. I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups.
  snip ... "Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us."

Well, Ms Fonda, the membership of the 'extremist groups' that you mention are no doubt made up of those of us who remember how you went to North Vietnam in 1972  and cavorted with an NVA anti-aircraft gun crew, the very same guns that shot down American planes; how you also participated in a staged press conference with unwilling American POWs, the purpose of which was to "prove" that American prisoners weren't being mistreated by their Viet Cong captors. Years afterward, when the then-released POWs described the very real torture and degradation they had suffered at the hands of the North Vietnamese, you dismissed them as "hypocrites and liars."


Yes, Ms Fonda, you certainly have first-hand personal knowledge of hypocrites. You define the word.

And as far as "far right lies", here's a picture of you sitting on the damn gun surrounded by North Vietnamese soldiers (aka the enemy).

And you have apparently forgotten about the documentary about a political troupe headed by yourself and Donald Sutherland which traveled to towns near military bases in the US in the early 1970s, putting on shows called “F.T.A.”, which stood for “F**k the Army”, aimed at convincing soldiers to voice their opposition to the Vietnam War, which was raging at the time.

But you never did "anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us."

Riiiight.

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.


Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.



And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
