In the 1970s, actress Jane Fonda sat on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. Unfortunately, it had nothing to do with a dating dry spell.
Forty years later, her acts from that era have come back to haunt her when she was banished from the QVC Shopping Channel. She’s upset about it.
Big Hollywood has Jane’s sad lament:
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.
Jane exercised her rights (perhaps “abused” is a better term) and now is upset when others exercise theirs. As QVC shoppers might say, “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”
It’s so unfair – Jane does a little PR for the enemy and POWs have the nerve to remember it.
Life’s a bitch. But Jane’s a traitor.
