What exactly did Jane Fonda say against U.S. troops in Vietnam?

She didn't start the war. Nor did she stop it. She never shot anyone. So what words did she say that were so unAmerican?







pseudo obscure
She reminds them of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:My_Lai_massacre.jpg

Rare to Find ... I don't think you even tried to find any info other than asking us in Y! Answers. Yes, you certainly MAY ask us, but the thought of looking for her kind of political venom makes me upset and ill. A simple Google search for "fonda vietnam" will uncover enough information to keep you busy for years! Seriously ... She sits in rich woman's palace and ... Well, let me put it this damned way ... If she loved the North Vietnamese so damned much, why didn't she pack her stuff and move there? People like her in their hearts KNOW better. But when they find a chance to climb the stage of public opinion, if they can't do it by the way they support their homeland, people such as she would even shoot it down, all for a chance to put her face on the evening news. Your other answers are great ... better than mine. But I had to add my two cents worth. Things to find about Hanoi Jane and Vietnam are more abundant than you could ever imagine.

just like alot of people she was against the war what got her in trouble and made many people hate her and disrespect her was the fact that she used her statis as a hollywood star to have photographs and films made with north vietnamese solders who were our enemys they in turn used it as a propaganda tool to undermine american support for the war. so it was not what she said it was what she did the old saying actions speak louder than words. by the way she was right to do what she did it took courage to make a stand .it was an imoral war for american strategic gain

She was with the enemy, and helped to try and kill US troops. If I was President at the time, she would be killed for treason.

She sat her ass on the very same anti aircraft guns that had shot down our pilots. Its one thing to speak out against a war, but its far more to sit on the killing machines that shot down our heroes that were put in the Hanoi hilton for years of torture.

well for one she called them murders. then a pow was killed for spitting in her face, when she said all pows should say they were sorry for all the pain that they caused. sounds to me like she's a traitor, and should be executed or leave this country. she was a traitor then as now.

http://home.earthlink.net/~american_families/id37.html Here are some other half-wit statements from Hanoi Jane: On November 21, 1970 she told a University of Michigan audience of some two thousand students, "If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist." At Duke University in North Carolina she repeated what she had said in Michigan, adding "I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism. " Washington Times July 7, 2000

It is not what she said, instead what she did. Posed with NVA with an anti-aircraft gun in the picture. And, also applauding the NVA with tehir anti-aircraft gun. SICK SICK SICK. Supposed to be anti-war why even be with the enemy??? YOUR supposed to oppose both sides and have each side end the war. Here are the pictures and see for yourself, why many Vietnam Vet and US Soldiers to this very day are still angry at her.

She is a traitor and should be treated as such.... In the Vietnam war, she aided the enemy by visiting the North Vietnamese country. (those are the bad guys) While she was there, she was photographed sitting on top of enemy artillery, saying something to the effect of she'd love to "shoot at the enemy" (us) This in effect gave the NV the propaganda they needed.... She visited American POW's and disrespected them and as a result they were tortured. She asked them how "they liked knowing they were baby and women killers" and other choice things like "Aren't you grateful you are being treated well by the Vietnamese?" Upon returning to the US, she never reported the brutality, and many more men were tortured because of it. She also told Viet Cong's that the US POW's were complaining and trying to get her to send messages...which resulted in more men being tortured,,, She is an admitted commie. She said once at a university in America to an auditorium full of people that "we should pray for communism" or something to that effect..... Also, she was in her 30's when this happened, so for those trying to blame this on youth or being misguided...GET OFF IT! She was well aware of what she was doing....And apologizing will never make up for it...she will never live this down.... Funny, for a commie fan.....she stayed in the safe old USA....

which one? She did a lot of horrible things that can't be forgiven. Imagine asking someone for help, and instead of helping she turned to the enemy for guidance. Imagine getting off a plane or walking through town after vietnam, and hearing "baby killer" be chanted while others spit in your face. It wasn't just what she said, but what she did. Jane Fonda was the Benedict Arnold of our time, she should have been tried for war crimes.


Michael N
It's not so much what she said, it's what she did. She sat behind a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun and was pretending to shoot down American aircraft. This is treason my friend and the official door prize for treason is a noose. Makes me wish an American smart bomb was zeroed in on that mount at the time she was sitting on it.

What the B----h did was to get a note from a prisoner and then hand the note over to Charlie rather than keep it to herself. The prisoner was beaten to death. That is the reason for the Hanoi Jane and I ain't fond a Jane. She also provided comfort to the Commies and there are still pitchurers of her sitting on nAA guns wearing a commie helmet.

Jane Fonda -- actress, political activist and partner of anti-war protester Tom Hayden -- entered enemy territory for two weeks in November and emerged, in the eyes of many, as a traitor after posing for photographs at the seat of an anti-aircraft cannon and making radio broadcasts urging U.S. airmen to stop bombing North Vietnam. Fonda told servicemen stationed on aircraft carriers in the Gulf of Tonkin that the bombs they were loading into planes were illegal and that using the bombs "makes one a war criminal." In 1988, Fonda went on ABC's "20-20" news program and apologized to Vietnam veterans and their families for her actions. "I was trying to help end the killing," Fonda said in an interview with Barbara Walters. "But there were times I was thoughtless and careless about it and I'm ... very sorry that I hurt them." Asked about the continued bitterness over something that happened years ago -- critics still refer to her as "Hanoi" Jane -- Fonda said, "There are still festering wounds and a lot of pain, and for some I've become a lightning rod." Fonda said she didn't realize at the time the effect posing with the anti-aircraft gun would have. "I know the power of images," she said in the 1988 interview. "To have put myself in a situation like that was a thoughtless and cruel thing to have done. ... I take full responsibility for it.

Her biggest blunder was having her picture taken sitting on a NorthVietnamese anti-aircraft gun. It was seen as an insult to the airmen who were being killed and taken prisoner everyday because of such guns.
