This is true to a point. For more info see:
Looks like Hanoi Jane may be honored as one of the “100
Women of the Century”. JANE FONDA remembered?
Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never
Known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our “country” but the
men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam.
There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but
Jane Fonda’s participation in what I believe to be blatant treason,
is one of them. Part of my conviction comes from exposure to
those who suffered her attentions. The first part of this is from an
F-4E pilot. The pilot’s name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1978,
The Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a former POW in Ho
Lo Prison-the “Hanoi Hilton”. Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell,
cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJs, he was ordered to describe for a
visiting American “Peace Activist” the “lenient and humane treatment”
he’d received. He
spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and dragged away. During the
subsequent beating, he fell forward upon the camp Commandant’s feet,
accidentally pulling the man’s shoe off-which sent that officer berserk.
In ’78, the AF Col still suffered from double vision (which
permanently ended his flying days) from the Vietnamese Col’s frenzied
application of wooden baton.
From 1983-85, Col Larry Carrigan was the 347FW/DO (F-4Es). He spent 6
in the “Hilton”-the first three of which he was “missing in action”. His
wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the
cleaned/fed/clothed routine in preparation for a “peace delegation”
They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that
they still survived. Each man secreted a tiny
piece of paper, with his SSN on it, in the palm of his hand.
When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line,
each man’s hand and asking little encouraging snippets like:
“Aren’t you sorry you bombed babies?” and “Are you grateful for
the humane treatment from your benevolent captors?” Believing this had
be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper. She took them
without missing a beat. At the end of the line and once the camera
rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer
charge…and handed him the little
pile. Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Col Carrigan was
almost number four. For years after their release, a group of determined
former POWs Including Col Carrigan, tried to bring Ms. Fonda and others
on charges of treason. I don’t know that they used it, but the charge of
“Negligent Homicide due to Depraved Indifference” would also seem
appropriate. Her obvious “granting of aid and comfort to the enemy”,
should’ve been sufficient for the treason count. However, to date, Jane
Fonda has never been
formally charged with anything and continues to enjoy the privileged
life of the rich and famous.
Part of our shortfall is ignorance: most don’t know such actions ever
place. Thought you might appreciate the knowledge. Most of you’ve
already seen this by now… only addition I might add to these sentiments
to remember the
satisfaction of relieving myself into the urinal at some airbase or
where “zaps” of Hanoi Jane’s face had been applied.
To whom it may concern:
I was a civilian economic development advisor in Viet Nam, and
was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Viet Nam
in 1968, and held for over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary
confinement, one year in a cage in Cambodia, and one year in a
“black box” in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese captors deliberately
poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a
leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle
the Cambodian border. At one time, I was weighing approximately 90
lb.. (My normal weight is 170 lb..) We were Jane Fonda’s “war
criminals.” When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp
political officer if I would be willing to meet with Jane Fonda. I said
yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs
were receiving, which was far different from the treatment purported
by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as “humane and
lenient.” Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my
knees with outstretched arms with a piece of steel placed on my hands,
beaten with a bamboo cane every time my arms dipped.
I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda for a couple of hours after
was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV.
She did not answer me, her former husband, Tom Hayden, answered for her.
She was mind controlled by her husband. This does not exemplify someone
should be honored as “100 Years of Great Women.”
After I was released, I was asked what I thought of Jane Fonda and the
anti-war movement. I said that I held Joan Baez’s husband in very
high regard, for he thought the war was wrong, burned his draft card
and went to prison in protest. If the other anti-war protesters took
this same route, it would have brought our judicial system to a halt and
the war much earlier, and there wouldn’t be as many on that somber
black granite wall called the Vietnam Memorial. This is democracy. This
the American way.
Jane Fonda, on the other hand, chose to be a traitor, and went
to Hanoi, wore their uniform, propagandized for the communists, and urged
American soldiers to desert. As we were being tortured, and
some of the POWs murdered, she called us liars. After her hero’s-the
North Vietnamese communists-took over South Vietnam, they
systematically murdered 80,000 South Vietnamese political prisoners. May
their souls rest on her head forever. Shame! Shame! ( History is a
sword in the hands of those who refuse to forget it. Think of this
the next time you see Ms. Fonda-Turner at a Braves game).
Please take the time to read and forward to as many people as
you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer and
she needs to know that “we will never forget”. Lest we forget…”100
years of great women” Jane Fonda should never be considered.
