Hanoi Jane

Posted on June 2, 2010


I will not spend a lot of time on Hanoi Jane. She isn’t worth it.  Her treasonable actions and words speak for themselves. Just remember that while she was saying and doing the things she did our men were in the Vietnamese prison camps being beaten each day.

 To get to North Vietnam, Jane Fonda, flew to Paris, France. From there, she flew on to Moscow. In Moscow, she boarded a Russian Aeroflot flight to Laos. From Laos she proceeded to Hanoi, North Vietnam. She stepped off the plane wearing Black Pajamas  (the uniform of the Viet Cong) and a White Tunic ( the traditional dress of a Vietnamese woman) and spoke these words: “Greetings from revolutionary Comrades in America”. Thus she began to be known as “Hanoi Jane”.

Hanoi Jane spent two weeks in North Vietnam. She visited factories, schools, farms, and Prison Camps. On July 8, 1972 she made a speech on Hanoi radio. Below are excerpts from that speech. The whole speech can be seen at www.rjgleib.com/thoughts/fonda/html.

“This is Jane Fonda. During my two-week visit in the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, I’ve had the opportunity to visit a great many places and speak to a large number of people from all walks of life.

I cherish the memories of the blushing Militia girls on the roof of their factory.

I cherish the way the farmer evacuated from Hanoi, without hesitation, offered me, an American, their best individual bomb shelter while the US bombs fell nearby. The daughter and I, in fact, shared the shelter wrapped in each others arms, cheek to cheek.——-

But now despite the bombs, despite the crimes being created, being committed against them by Richard Nixon—–.’

She did not mention the Prison Camps although she did visit them. She saw our POWs and told the world that they were being treated well. Any fool could see by looking at them that they had been severely mistreated and beaten.

At one time she said “We thank you (the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese) for your brave and heroic fight.”

In 1999, Barbara Walters choose to honor Hanoi Jane (Jane Fonda) in a Television special called, “A Celebration: 100 Years of Great Women:. I’m not sure who she left off to put Jane on that list but at least 100,000,000 women were disrespected by Walters.

At a later date, Hanoi Jane said her 1972 Visit to a North Vietnam Anti-Aircraft Gun site was, “a betrayal of American Forces and the Country that gave me privilege”. I’m not a constitutional Academic, however, if you betrayed your country that means you committed TREASON.

Hanoi Jane can put on all of the make-up she wants and she can tighten her buns until she can bend nails with them but she will never be forgotten by me for the low-life she is.
