Boycott this movie. Do not PAY to see Hanoi Jane!
What a disgrace to Mrs. Nancy Reagan!
Boycott this movie!
America, we must not forget!
JANE FONDA NANCY REAGAN
This cannot go around too much. Those of us that were living
in those years will never forget that she was a traitor and did
a lot of damage to our boys.
She has now been chosen to play Nancy Reagan in her life story.
I am sending this one out because so many do not know this truth...
and also because she was on 3 times this week talking about her new book... And how good she feels in her 70's... she still does not know what she did wrong. Her book just may not make the best list if more people knew... also...

Thank you all. Many died in Vietnam for our freedoms.
I did not like Jane Fonda then and I don't like her now.
She can lead her present life the way she wants and perhaps SHE can forget the past, but we DO NOT have to stand by without comment and see her "honored" as a "Woman of the Century."
(I remember this well)
For those who served and/or died....
NEVER FORGIVE A TRAITOR. SHE REALLY WAS A TRAITOR!! And now President OBAMA wants to honor her......!!!!
In Memory of LT. C.Thomsen Wieland who spent 100 days
at the Hanoi Hilton [Famous North Vietnam Prison]
IF YOU NEVER FORWARDED ANYTHING IN YOUR
LIFE FORWARD THIS SO THAT EVERYONE WILL
A TRAITOR IS ABOUT TO BE HONORED.
KEEP THIS MOVING ACROSS AMERICA
This is for all the kids born in the 70's and after who do not
remember, and didn't have to bear the burden that our fathers, mothers and older brothers and sisters had to bear.
Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the '100 Women
of the Century.'
BARBARA WALTERS WRITES:
Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country, but specific men who served and sacrificed during the Vietnam War.
The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot.
The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat.
In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a POW in Ho Lo Prison the ' Hanoi Hilton.'
Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed,
and dressed in clean PJ's, 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 was dragged away. During the subsequent beating, he fell forward on to the camp Commandant 's feet, which sent that officer berserk.
In 1978, the Air Force Colonel still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying career) from the
Commandant's frenzied application of a wooden baton.
From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO
(F-4E's). He spent 6 years in the ' Hanoi Hilton'...the first three of which his family only knew he was 'missing in action.' His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned-up, fed and clothed routine in preparation for a 'peace delegation' visit.
They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to
the world that they were alive and still survived. Each man
secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his Social Security Number on it, in the palm of his hand. When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking 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 to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper.
She took them all without missing a beat.. At the end of the
line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked
disbelief of the POW's she turned to the officer in charge
and handed him all the little pieces of paper...
Three men died from the subsequent beatings.
Colonel Carrigan was almost number four but he survived,
which is the only reason we know of her actions that day.
I was a civilian economic development adviser in Vietnam ,
and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in
South Vietnam in 1968, and held prisoner 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 Banme Thuot, South Vietnam,
whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border. At one time, I weighed only about 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs.)
We were Jane Fonda's 'war criminals....'
When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp
communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with her. I said yes, for I wanted to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received... and how different it was from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by her as 'humane and lenient.'
Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees, with my arms outstretched with a large steel weight placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane.
I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda soon after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She never did answer me.
These first-hand experiences do not exemplify someone who should be honored as part of '100 Years of Great Women.' Lest we forget....' 100 Years of Great Women' should never include a traitor whose hands are covered with the blood of so many patriots.
There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to,
but Hanoi Jane 's participation in blatant treason, is one of them. Please take the time to 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.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
I never forgot and I do not need links to remember
As an USAF vet who served in South East Asia for a total of 5 years during the 70's, I will never forget Hanoi Jane posing for the press behind a ChiCom AA gun acting like she was shooting down our aircraft. She should have and still should be tried for treason.
Don't tread on me or mine.
I am comfortable laying on a rock in the sun; bothering no one. If you choose to ignore the above statement, you will wish all you had to do, is deal with a snake.
I remember Traitor Hanoi Jane and how she betrayed our servicemen. The original post is accurate. She is one of many Hollywood types I will never support.
"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".
To this day, 43 years after I left 'Nam I still get a burning sensation in the pit of my stomach anytime I hear or see her name. Believe me when I say that everyone I know is getting a copy of AZ_Larz_NY' message.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Apparently it's a movie called, "The Butler." Should be an easy one to avoid.
Jane Fonda: Nancy Reagan Lines Were Too Mean
It's unbelievably clueless and insulting to have this traitor play Mrs Reagan in a movie. Fortunately it looks like the part about Obama honoring her is false. All I can find online are articles disproving that part.
I was in the South when she was in the North supporting my enemy. She a traitor and always will be. I don't hate her but she is a dispicable person. I would never go to a movie she was in. People like her are very common in our country today. Anti Americans !!
I flew with a former POW when I was in the 7th MAS at Travis, one of the nicest people you ever meet. He never talked about his experiences in the Hilton but in doing some Internet research I have found some stories of his experiences, not very pretty but he persevered and did everything he could to improve the morale of other POWs. As far as Hanoi jane and john (I’ve been to Viet Nam) kerry, both could be sent back to Viet Nam and they will not be missed. I consider it to be an insult to Nancy Reagan to have someone so despicable to play her.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
I've heard that the paper being passed is urban legend and I've also heard that it's absolutely true.
No matter, I know that she went to North Viet Nam, was photographed with the North Vietnamese officers with a big, cheesy grin on her face and I've read what she said about our soldiers.
I destest her, I detest her name. I detest everything about her. She's a pig and I reserve that word exclusively for her.
I'll apologize ahead of time since I'm just a dumb kid from a younger generation, but I'll never fully understand the sentiment expressed towards anti-war activists from the Vietnam period. Why isn't the sentiment from veterans directed towards the leaders who ordered the draft and sent those young men in harms way?
The problem with gun control is that drugs are already illegal.
It's not that jane fonda protested the war, it's that she aided and abetted the enemy and caused irrevocable harm to our soldiers.
