Oh, did I say that?
I grew up knowing Jane Fonda as the person who had all those workout tapes, and didn’t know her as Hanoi Jane until later.
She did go and support our enemy in a time of war, made broadcasts supporting the enemy voluntarily, and took pictures which were used for propaganda. She is what is called a “useful idiot”. The use and influence, they actually secretly supported, was their most successful fight in the war. Similarly, and more recently, we have had Anti-war rallies that were actually started by Iraqi Nationals.
Fonda only got away with her actions because of political benefit to Nixon, who also stopped the war only because he needed to focus on Watergate.
Jane has apologized, but only during times which it benefits her, such as when she has a project out that can be hurt by negative publicity. I do not find her to be sincere, especially when she is making almost the exact same statements about the current war, again being a useful idiot.
Her attacks on POW’s when they came back was the worst, accusing them of lying about their torture, and harsh treatment.
Her problem is the same of many from that generation. The idea of communist ideals fooled many of the young and ignorant, (again the product of Soviet Union influence,) and many of the free love, never bathe, take as many drugs as possible hippies thought they were actually intelligent. (Ever listen to a person who gets high way too much?)
But before anyone posts about her receiving notes from POW’s about torture, I should point out that this is a myth.
