Should a two-time Oscar-winner like Jane Fonda really be making a spectacle out of the fact that she wanted to appear on a home-shopping channel? What’s next? “Damn those righties! I was looking forward to cutting the ribbon at that grocery store with Leif Garrett!”
Anyway, some shameless whoppers in Ms. Fonda’s own words:
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.
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.
No one’s criticizing Fonda for her “opposition to the Vietnam War.” It was hanging out with the enemy and propagandizing on their behalf that upsets people. This isn’t 1968 anymore. If nothing else, the Left has figured out that while this country is okay with opposition and protest, the days of tres chic trashing of the troops are long past and beyond the boundaries of decency.
Good people in America are just hating you back, Ms. Fonda. Don’t be so thin-skinned. You started it.
