I am an American and Jane Fonda betrayed my country. Sunday night, the Oscars put her in front of the country she betrayed. What about the veterans she harmed?

Jane Fonda is lucky to have been born the daughter of the great actor Henry Fonda. America lost in this transaction. She is a child of privilege. She was good looking and she was willing to show some skin to get some movies.

For some reason, she decided the American system of democracy and capitalism was awful and she became a tool of totalitarians. But unlike most celebrity leftists, she was willing to do what most were smart enough to avoid. She did a celebrity tour of the battlefields and POW camps in Vietnam.

Beautiful women have been great spokesmodels for all kinds of products. Jane Fonda was the spokesmodel for treason and communism. She should be in jail. Instead, she was on stage at the 2020 Oscar Awards.

She could have gone with Bob Hope and the other celebrities to support the American military. Instead, she went to Vietnam to support the communists. She took pictures sitting in the gunner position on the anti-aircraft weapons that were used to shoot down American pilots. She visited American prisoners of war and told the Communist torturers what personal information the captives told her in secret.

When the American POWs came home, she called them liars. She stood up for the savages who tortured Americans. She used her celebrity status to undermine the young Americans who had answered their country's call to duty. Everyone knew the American POWs had been tortured, but Jane Fonda lied to America and served her masters in the communist world.

Whenever I see Jane Fonda is in a movie or on a stage, I wonder about the people who put her there. Either they don't care that she is a traitor or they don't even know that she is a traitor. Or worse, they know what she is and they don't care or they can't stand up to her and her supporters.

Ignorance or weakness is the only answer.
