Jane Fonda To Play Nancy Reagan

March 29, 2012 by  

Jane Fonda To Play Nancy Reagan
Hanoi Jane will play former first lady Nancy Reagan in an upcoming film.

The first lady who once wanted to replace the fine china in the White House will be portrayed by one of Hollywood’s oldest actresses in an upcoming movie that has caused quite a stir among Republican moviegoers.

Many conservatives are baffled that Nancy Reagan will be played by liberal activist Jane Fonda in director Lee Daniels’ upcoming film “The Butler.” Well-known for her liberal activism as well as her opposition to the Vietnam War, Fonda is often referred to as “Hanoi Jane” because of the visits she made to the country during the conflict.

Daniels’ choice of Fonda to portray the wife of conservative icon President Ronald Reagan has caused uproar throughout conservative media. It has been noted by some people that Fonda was likely chosen in spite of her personal beliefs because her appearance is similar to that of the former first lady; others are calling the film a liberal attempt at mockery.

The movie is based on the life of Eugene Allen — the head butler of the White House who served eight Presidents. Fonda will not be the only star in the film. The flick, which is tentatively set for a summer start, may also feature Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Liam Neeson and John Cusack.

    What are you trying to say?
    That Whorelywood is as full of liberal idiots as this film?
    I’m not sure that I didnt already know that as fact though it seems as if I have blogged this opine before.I am almost certain that I would like the individual actors themselves if I met them personally.But I find their positions on the conditions of both California and the nation reprehensible.
    But they are likely far more in the know than I am.
    Let’s face it folks,being uber wealthy probably has it’s perks.
    Traveling the world getting other peoples opinions,and earnestly listening to them.
    Personally,I can’t remember the last time I thought,”The french and their opinions are important to me”,but then again they arent really that important to me in the grand scheme.
    I am sure that there is a good reason behind these folks and their convictions,I just as sure that I dont share that conviction.I guess I am just old fashioned that way.
    Not that hob-knobbing with the rich and shameless wouldnt be fun,but it doesnt rank high in my list of spectator sports like it seems to for so many Americans.
    These are the same folks who think the ultra rich are the cause of their conditions.
    Who would have thunk such a think?
    My question is this…..
    If the ultra nouveau riche are the problem,then why do we prop them up by spending our time and wages at the theatre ensuring that their rich and shameless lifestyles continue?
    Ah….its the paparazzi syndrome isnt it?
    We like to pay our hypocrites exobitant amounts to entertain us.
    How else would Oprah gotten to be as rich and influential as she is?
    This question would stupify even the most scholarly amongst us.
    “Gee Wally,can I own a patch of land in Napa,so I can grow grapes and make my own wine like they do in France?”
    “Probably not Beaver,after all,you are just a kid TV star.”
    “But look on the bright side,you can still live in Marin county and elect Nacy Pelosi as your representation in the Hizzouse.”
    So now there is an outcry.How can the sleaze kings of Hollywood let a communist sympathizer portray one of our grat conservative first ladies in a film?
    Are there anything but communist sympathizers in Hollywood?
    Yes….of course there are conservatives there too.
    Just none capable of shredding your confidence in the sleaze kings ability to amaze you with their portrayal prowess.You have to study to win awards.
    Ultimately the will be a nomination for the liberal portrayal of the conservative.
    Which leads me to what?
    Mitt Romney?
    Nuff said…………….

      Ummmmmm…. Folks, pay attention!

      Jane Fonda is a christian.

      “Fonda stated publicly on Charlie Rose in April 2006 that her Christianity may have played a part in the divorce, as Turner was known to be critical of religion.”

      From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Fonda

      So, gonna forgive one of your own?

      Rob

      • Nadzieja Batki

        We can’t forgive because she is not asking for forgiveness.
        We also have a choice to not forgive even if she asks.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Since you were not a fly on the wall of their home, you have no idea what Ted Turner thought of his wife or her supposed religion.
        It is a case of she said, he said.

      • eddie47d

        She publicly apologized a few years ago for the hurt she caused. I don’t think she had to but it was a nice gesture. Forgiveness isn’t always accepted in many cultures and we are no exception.

      • kaizen66

        O’Bummer says he is a Christian too… Actions speak louder than words…

      • eddie47d

        66 what are you doing as an apparent Christian and American to make this a better country?

      • cawun cents

        I am sorry Robert,
        But i figured you’d be one of those folks who left a persons faith out of their careers,kind of like politicians are supposed to,right?
        Separation of church and state?
        A career could be found to be a particular state of personal involvement could it not?
        In so much as our political views are often seen as defining us so then might our chosen vocation?But when we use that system as a measuring stick then whatever political aims we make which define us,which clash with our faith then we have someone like you to tell us how bad our faith really is.Yet for some reason when an actress,who had previously aligned herself with an opposing form of political view suddenly is being called on it,then you use that hammer of ones own perceived righteousness to hit us over the head.
        Thank God for people like you Robert,you keep us knowing our Christian faults.
        Its not as if they are painfully obvious to us.We only have to live with them.
        Whereas you can sit and armchair quarterback from a distance with no apparent wrongdoing in your own mind.
        I wish I had that kind of arrogance and the whereithal to deny its exitence in myself.
        But alas,I do not.
        I am well aware of my ignprances and arrpgances,which is why I need Jesus Christ in my life.I am more unclean than Ms.Fonda,yet I have never sympatihized with a communist government.Thanks,-CC.

      • Rebecca

        Robert,

        Once again you have totally missed the point and jumped with both feet on Christianity. Fonda’s religious beliefs aren’t what the Republican viewers are upset about. Here is the problem! :

    Insulting selection.

    • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

      My thought as well, nothing like slapping Mrs. Reagan and her husband’s memory by choosing this remnant of nothingness.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        They will make Nancy Reagan look stupid the way Margaret Thatcher was made to look stupid in the Meryl Streep movie.

      • Mark in LA

        How do you make the most stupid President in the history of the country look stupid? How do you make digbat “Just say no” Nancy look even more stupid – show her with her astrologer?

      • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

        Oh dear mark, hateful little soul are we?

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Libertytrain, what do you think you’ll get from those Commie loving idiots from Libtown? I for one will not watch a show or movie that is starring or even features Hanoi Jane. I served in ‘Nam (’68-’69) and when I came home I was spit on by one of her little fans. She should have been tried as a Traitor

        As you have said Hanoi Jane will end up making both Ronny and Nancy look like baffoons. I was proud to have served in the Military when he was my Commander.

        MAY HE AND NANCY REST IN PEACE!

      • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

        you’re right – the Reagans’ will be able to rest in peace – Hanoi Jane will not and perhaps will meet up with those men that she endangered, causing them torture and in some cases, death….. She can “splain” herself then to them.

      • Rebecca

        Mark,

        There were two that were way more stupid than Reagan (although I think he was smarter than most). One of those two is in office right now!

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          Rebecca you are wrong about there being 2 that were dumber than Ronny (I served in the Military with him as my Commander) there were 3: BHO, JC, and WJC. I think you can figure out who they were by their initials.

  • doctordoctor

    Jane Fonda looks like a shriveled hemorrhoid on Nancy Reagan’s rectum. Actually that is pretty much what she is.

  • angelwannabe

    Talk about the world in weird__Hanoi Jane playing Nancy Reagan, miss anywhere BUT America Jane…..Jeez

    • Robert Smith

      Shucks folks, wasn’t Ronald Reagan President of SAG, a staunch union, and a Democrat until he sold out when he went to work for GE on General Electric Theater?

      Seems to me that if Ronald Reagan can change so can Hanoi Jane.

      BTW, I was on the Intrepid when I read about her antics in VietNam and I still can’t watch any movie she is in except Barabella (without sound).

      Rob

      • angelwannabe

        RS, It’s a matter of timing on the Famous Folks, Ronald Reagan was a liberal when he was in the Movies, most of us who are Reaganites remember Reagan as a great orator, with the ability to lead with words__Hanoi Jane was renowned as a commie sympathizer, she was more in the news than in movies__forgiveness of either has nothing to do with it__forgetting does__once bit twice shy…

      • Mark in LA

        Yes, angel you got that right Reagan was an orator – too bad he wasn’t a leader or a conservative. He gave great speeches at the border then gave us the amnesty from hell. He railed on about small government but never did get rid of the Department of Education like he promised.

        It’s a good thing we have so many wonderful you-tubes of Reagan speeches to “remember” him by. If we didn’t, we would have only his record to go on. In that case Reagan wouldn’t be Reagan would he?

      • angelwannabe

        Mark, They’re all figure heads mark, with puppet strings attached. If they say too much, inquire too much, the master yanks those strings and reigns them in. Whatever the Presidents or CEO’s rather, do, is all pre-determined by the TPTB. If you think your vote counts, you should think again and ask yourself Why, do things just keep getting worse no matter who “gets voted in” a’hem?

        __Mostly everything we see going on in Washington is symbolic at best. Simply to keep us stoopid.

        Just for the record, I liked Reagan he had a calming reassuring way with words, very unlike the arrogance in the White House now.

  • Gary L

    I wouldn’t watch that film if I was paid to do it.
    Jane Fonda is a disgrace.

    • Guest

      Amen, Gary L!!

    • eddie47d

      No Lt Calley was a disgrace many times over.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Gary, call her what she is a Bleeeeepen Traitor. I won’t watch anything she stars in or even appears is. Hanoi Jane can go to 4377 (read it upside down and backwards).

  • oldbill

    As a Vietnam Veteran, I have long since forgiven Jane Fonda for anything she might or might not have done exercising her right to freedom of speech, which I put my life on the line to defend. My Honorable Discharge, like the Constitution, is a piece of paper with ink on it. Ms Fonda has paid a high price for the exercise of her rights, as have many other actors and actresses. Let her play the part in the movie, and I will exercise my right to not go see it.

    • Karolyn

      Thank you for your maturity and rationality.

    • Robert Smith

      “I will exercise my right to not go see it.”

      Me too.

      It’s a double whammy for me. I don’t like Reagan anymore and I generally have zero interest in a story with him in it.

      Rob

    • alberta61

      So bill, you’re ok with her role in having American POW’s beaten to death?
      You can forgive her for that?

      That’s really F’ing sad.

    • Joey Biden

      As a Viet Nam veteran, I will never forgive Hanoi Jane Fonda for what she did during the war and that goes for her Commie friends too. She was a traitor then and a traitor still. What a disgrace to cast her in this movie.

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Welcome home, Bro. I served in ‘Nam with the 1st Air Cavalry Division (AM) 1968-1969 and as you say Hanoi Jane is a traitor to the USA and most of all to our Brothers who were beaten after she gave their names to NVA guards there.

    • http://elliott10.wordpress.com elliott10

      As a Vietnam Veteran, I have long since forgiven Jane Fonda also; But, I wouldn’t go see her play herself, or anything else.

      • Darrell

        Once she apologizes to the Veterans and the American People then I might forgive her. But until she states that what she did was wrong I can’t forgive her, which she refuses to do even now so many year later. But this is Hollywood we are talking about making the film. And yes I’m a Vietnam Veterans.

      • eddie47d

        She did apologize for sitting on the anti-tank gun but when she did it was to rest not to offend any American. That picture taken obviously didn’t put her in a good light and she did say she was sorry for that. She has absolutely no reason to apologize for protesting against the war. No one does.

      • Fredroe

        Eddie, the only apology she gave was being caught on film sitting on our enemies’ tanks. She has said she does not apologize for anything else. She wasn’t just opposing the war, she was opposing our troops! If she wanted to show her freedom of speech, that’s one thing, however, she empowered our enemies. Protest our government in our own country if you want to make a statement. Some will forgive her, but her crimes against our own soldiers is too heinous to forgive.

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          Fredroe, if that idiot Lee does make that film and Hanoi Jane stars in it the only thing you’ll hear is my friends and I exercising our right of free speach is us holding up signs that say “HANIO JANE, WE WILL NOT FORGET!” Oh, I’ll be in uniform when I do. I’m a retired combat vet (twice). Once in ’68-’69 (Vietnam) and again in Desert Storm.

          GOD BLESS THE US OF A and MAY SHE REIGN FOREVER!

    • mamasaid

      Fonda has the right to speak her mind anywhere in America. What she didn’t have the right to do is give “aid and comfort” to the enemy. She went to Hanoi, she was photographed sitting on an anti aircraft gun, with a big grin on her face.
      that alone demoralized our military, not to mention the friendly little chats she had with the commanders of the Viet Cong. And she didn’t ask for forgiveness. She merely said she was sorry if anyone was offended. I wouldn’t spit on her if she was on fire. And I won’t be watching anything that she is in, even if she guest stars on my very favorite show.

    • firefight

      oldbill,
      You say, “Ms. Fonda paid a high price for exercising her rights.” Let me share something with you and eddie47. I was in Nam in 68′ and 69′ and well remember Ms. Fonda’s betrayal to us and our mission for those in that country that were fighting Communism. Ms. Fonda went far beyond protesting the war in Viet Nam. She used her political influence and her family reputation and pull as well as her financial assets to personally injure and kill American soldiers who were incarcerated in a POW camp, the Hanoi Hilton. To stand outside a recruiting office, holding a sign and yelling at the top of your lungs that our involvement in a war you don’t believe in is called protesting. She, as I have stated, went far beyond that. SHE KILLED! With her hand tightly holding those men’s personal information on those few pieces of paper, she had only to take them with her and their families would have known that they were still alive. Instead, she chose to take those pieces of paper and hand them over to the camp comandant, an action of deliberate betrayal. For this, those men were severly punished, beaten and some died from that punishment. All they wanted to do was let their families know that they were still alive. They trusted her to be an American, an ambassador that would help them connect with their loved ones and she chose to betray them. When she did that, she ceased to be anything other than the lowets form of life in my eyes. She placed herself on the pedastal beside Benedict Arnold. In fact, she took the head of the line. That was her choice and you and some others may forgive her for that act, but the fact remains that she not only chose to protest a war, she chose to aid and abet the Communits enemy, an act that I as an American will never forgive. It is because of the complacency that now exists in our country, the laxed vigilance to Communist’s intervention that we now have the corrupt leadership we now have in this country. It is because of the “Jane Fondas” and people like her using their “Hollywood” influence to further their personal agendas that good men and women will suffer and die all over this world. In closing, if you can’t support the people who are defending your rights to be stupid, get the hell out of this country. There are plenty of Communist thinking countries you can go to.

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Welcome home, Brother!

        I too was in ‘Nam from Jun ’68 to Jun ’69 seving wth A Co. 228th Avn Bn, 1st Cavalry Division (AM), we flew out of Bear Cat. i noticed that the Cong and NVA activity increased after her little escapade. I did’t find out why until I returned home and my family asked me about it. When they told me why I imediately found my movie “Barbrailla” and put it in the round file (Trash) and from that day on I have never watched a movie, or even a show on TV that featured Hanoi Jane. AND I NEVER WILL!

        When that piece of crap comes to a theatre near me I will be standing out front with some friend excercising out Freedom of Speech with signs that say “HANOI JANE, WE WILL NEVER FORGET.”

        I would thoroughly enjoy if such a protest went nationwide and caused the theatres to pull the it.

        Once, again, Brother, welcome home!

      • firefight

        And welcome home to you TSgt Wilch.
        It seems to me we have a bigger battle here than we did over there. How the hell did all of these mamsy pamsy panty waist Commie lovers get such a foothold over here? I think we just might see another war before we check out. As for Hanoi Jane, I’ve never bought a single thing that ever had anything to do with her and when I did get may hands on anything, I burned it. People say that she’s appologized for what she did and act like that’s all it takes to make the booboo go away. Sorry, that’s not how it works. For her, there’s no “King’s X.” NO appology or appologies can undo her betrayal to this nation and its warriors. I will call upon every American to go to the theatres in their towns and cities and let them know that they will not only protest the movie if they decide to show it but to let them know they will no longer patronize that theatre ever again in the future and will encourage all their families and friends to do the same. If we all stand together on this, our voices will be heard. Hollywood will have no reason to make movies if nobody is going to the theatres to see them. BTW and FYI, it’s interesting to note that ESPN, the sports channel who killed one of our young auto racing stars advertisment because they said it had political and religous overtones, (which it did not) is a sub of ABC which is owned and a sub of Walt Disney Productions. The tentacles of this monstor seem to end up in Hollywood. Are you getting the picture?

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          Bro, you forgot to say that ABC’s is also owned be T. Turner, one of the biggest libs.
          I hope that the jerk Lee is reading all our anti-HANOI JANE post and grows a pair and decides to not make the movie at this time. But, you know Hollywood and their pinko and Socialist agenda he won’t because his handlers want their cut of his proffits.

    • Fredroe

      oldbill, yeah, Hanoi Jane has really paid a high price, HA. She’s a multimillionaire that has made her money from Americans that keep on supporting this radical, elitist communist. And, by the way, she DID say that communism was the best thing a person could experience.

  • northbrook

    I cannot see a worse selection for playing Nancy Reagan. It is an insult that someone would select Fonda to play the First lady. She betrayed the country and the thousands of Americans that fought the Vietnam War. If she is selected then count me as one that will not view this movie.

    • firefight

      Beyond that, northbrook, we have the right to picket that movie. This whole thing just goes to show just how SNAFU Hollywood and their thinking is.

  • Sirian

    When I first read the headline on this it took but seconds before I was fully nauseated. Honestly had to take an Alka-Seltzer, double, to calm things down. Need I say more?

  • Karolyn

    It’s called “acting”, people, and has nothing to do with politics.I would be interested in knowing what Nancy thinks about it, since hers is the only opinion that really matters.

    • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

      Karolyn, wow, your attempt to insult is remarkable. Pretty much everyone understands what acting is. the pres does it everyday. That wasn’t the point. We are here to express our opinion over something and someone trite. It was a nice change of pace from the difficult issues we are facing. and Hanoi Jane is enjoying one more spot light thrown on her….

    • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

      It has everything to do with politics, Karolyn. Hollywood is in fact, an extension, or the arm of the ruling elite, military-industrial-complex, the homosexual machine, big-pharma, the pedophile organization, the pagan religion, and last but not least, the green movement. Time to wake up Karolyn, and stop being stupid!

    • firefight

      Karolyn, How can you be so totally stupid and nieve? It is ALL about politics. It’s all about telling those men and women who gave up their lives and their time to be there in that country that what Jane Fonda did doesn’t matter. It is a political slap in the face of every American warrior who has ever given and then was betrayed by someone over here who just didn’t give a sh–…….like you and like that stupid producer that wouild take a woman with the character, reputation and convictions of Nancy Reagan and allow a traitor like Jane Fonda to portray her. The whole thought of it makes me puke.

  • Gary

    Jane Fonda is a “traitor” and should have been locked away years ago never to see the light of day…….

  • Ray

    This is not unusual in liberal Hollywood. Can Fonda pull it off without her liberal agenda. Doubtful but it will be interesting to see. As in the case of Sarah Palin it only helped her book sales. They are so very bright in Hollywood aren’t they?

  • http://personallibertyalerts ron

    Who gives a sh– about Jane Fonda! Enough said!!

  • Ron

    what an insult to Nancy Reagan. What Fonda did during the vietnam war against our troops is unforgivable. Need I say more?

  • Rod Roberts

    Hanoi Jane is still a traitor to her country. I won’t go see this film or any other she is in.

  • Donald York

    Jane Fonda is a traitor to the USA. I would like to spit in her face. What an ugly old woman!

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Donald, I must admit I have wished that I could also spit on her. However, when I thought about it I realized the only thing that would happen is I would go to jail.

      Hanoi Jane, isn’t worth and when that movie ever comes to a theater near me, I and several (I hope) will excersise our freedom of speach by standing out in front of the theater protesting with our signs saying “HANOI JANE: WE WON’T FORGET WHAT YOU DID!” I know she won’t see our protest but it will let people know what see did.

      • eddie47d

        Then you wouldn’t mind standing out side of G Bush’s compound in Texas and demand action against his ill thought out war which caused thousands of civilians to die. Then stop over to Cheney’s bunker and protest while you are at it.

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          eddie47d, what so-called civilians are you talking about: the ones that are attacking our troops and when they realize that they have stepped in it run away, taking any weapons that are laying around with them, among the civilians of any town in the warzone or the 3000+ that died when the Twin Towers came down?
          If you are talking about the ones that are attacking our troops almost daily go join up (enlist) and find out that you have been lead down the wrong path. However, if you are talking about the 3000+ go join up and help fight those that planned in the attacks and are daily attacking our troops.
          Until then eddie47d, do as the old saying goes; “Before you critize someone walk a mile in the boots!”

      • eddie47d

        So that is how it works for you. 3,000 are killed in America so we bomb a country with no connection to those killings. So those thousands of innocent civilians have to die because of your blood lust or revenge. We knew who the culprits were so why start false wars against countries with no skin in the “deal”. Thanks for your service but no thanks in your silence in accepting those false flag wars.

      • firefight

        Eddie47, You know what? George W. and Laura Bush actually took their time to visit V.A. Hospital facilities to personally thank our soldiers, they went to airports to welcome them back. This is what we’re talking about here you pathetic moron. Jane Fonda made sure some of our boys died. This is what we’re talking about here. You always manage to take something and twist it around. You are one of the Liberal minded mental midgets we want to see leave this country.

  • jay Lindberg

    I really don’t have a problem with Jane playing Nancy Reagan or the actions of Tom and Jane in the Vietnam War.

    You have to remember that the core of the Anti-war movement were the Vets that came back from the War on the GI Bill.

    A Little history.

    The Vietnam war was a war based on lies and the people that got us into that war were the ones that needed to be strung up or shoot. People like Henry Kissinger.

    The earliest assessments of what it would take to win that war (if that was even possible) were pushed under the rug because the armaments industry wanted to sell tanks, Hueys, guns and bombs.

    Just something to think about.

    • Sirian

      jay Lindberg you sound like a freshman or sophomore in college that has been soaking up all the BS you possibly can. “You have to remember that the core of the Anti-war movement were the Vets that came back from the War on the GI Bill.” LOL!!! If that isn’t a statement of your kool-aide mind, nothing more is. What a lovely dancing idiot you truly are today.

    • Robert Smith

      “You have to remember that the core of the Anti-war movement were the Vets that came back from the War on the GI Bill.”

      I didn’t come back from “the war” but I was in during that era. I was one who objected to it when I got home. It was dumb for America to be involved there.

      The domino theory as a lie, as has been proven by the years since.

      Rob

    • Jeff Thomas

      Jay,
      I am a Viet Nam Vet. I see that you are very much miss informed. Ike got us into the war, not Henry. The core people were not the returning Vets. They were not the ones tossing vegetables at me when I got off of the plane in the States, it was college brats. Don’t open your mouth about us unless you know what you are talking about. Your kind has brought this country down with all of your miss information (lies). Do not insult us veterans again.

        Please explain to us what Jay said that wasn’t true?

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

        The first and second world war, were for the purpose to kill as many Protestants possible. Both wars can be traced back to the Papacy who were in cahoots with the Nazi fascists. Protestants, and Protestantism are Anathema to the Papacy, and the Jesuit order! Who, do you think is waging war on America? Research the cozy relationship that most Presidents have had, including the present, with the Papacy.

        eddie47d,
        Without question you do NOT hold any military time whatsoever – especially during the Vietnam era in it’s totality, August 5, ’64 to May 7,’75. Just to make sure you know who Jeff was referring/responding to – jay Lindbergh, not Jay. Two different people, same first name. Double check before you jump. The rest is self explanatory.

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Welcome home, Bro. Jeff, I too am a Vienam Vet, served from Jun ’68 – Jun ’69 with the 1st Cavalry Division (AM), and when I came home I was spit on. I decked the Punk that did the deed; however, I had to wash my hands several times before I felt clean, the punk smelled and looked like he hadn’t taken a bath since Momma stopped giving him one. Damn near ended up in jail.

      • eddie47d

        I made it clear about whom I was speaking about Sirian. So now what is your problem?

  • Donald York

    Makes me wonder who Spike Lee will have to portray Michelle Obama?

    • Jim

      Chewbacca the Wookie, don’t you see the resemblance?

      • Sirian

        Oh you’re so cruel Jim. . . LOL!!! Don’t stop, please don’t stop. . . LOL!!! :)

      • firefight

        Is Cheeta still alive?

  • Jim

    As a Nam Vet I do not watch anything with Hanoi Jane in it. I take offense to her being called a liberal activist when she should be called for what she is; a traitor, who should have done jail time, like Tokyo Rose did. What is the difference between the two? Just like Ayers and all the rest of the so called Freedom Fighting Socialists from the 70s they have not changed one bit and will stop at nothing along with their Communist Leader in the White House to totally destroy this country. I know all you commie sympathizers on here will rush right out to droll over your heroine in action.

  • eddie47d

    This is a prime example of why we will never end our warmongering throughout the world. This is why Ron Paul’s message will fall on deaf ears.You condemn the actions of our government when they involve us in numerous wars yet turn around and condemn those who protest against those false flag wars. In other words we should all shut up accept these wars or expect the wrath of being called a traitor. The Iran war will be authorized and will be justified because anyone who speaks out against it will be deemed UnAmerican. You are all proving that in spades.

    • angelwannabe

      Its one thing eddie to protest “A War” for the sake of War alone and the losses, being on the side of the US, its quite another to protest the War as a Commie Sympathizer!!!!

    • eddie47d

      If a war is wrong to begin with then it has nothing to do with anyone being labeled as a communist. If you protest against the upcoming Iranian War will you then be an Iranian/Muslim sympathizer?

    • larry

      apparently you r too young to know the facts. it is not b/c she ‘protested the war’. it is b/c she BETRAYED the POW’s who passed her their SS ##’s to take back home so their families wud kno they were alive. the rat bitch bastard gave the slips of paper to the captors who then beat the sh– out of those poor POW’s after the bitch was out of sight. she shud b SHOT ! not ‘forgiven’! ask me how i really feel.

      • Mo Better

        Larry, did you serve during the Viet Nam era? If not, you don’t know what you are talking about because you didn’t live it.

        Not all who have served their country are or were warmongers. Many were just average Joes, like me, who were doing what they saw at the time, and in the context of that time, was the right thing to do for their country. It is easy to look back with the benefit of now knowing how it turned out, but in those days for many of us 18-22 year olds in uniform there was great turmoil and uncertainty. Maybe we weren’t as brilliant as you were at the time to know how it would all turn out.

        Hanoi Jane was a traitor who aided, abetted and gave comfort to the enemy in time of war, which is a treasonous act in all ages and all wars. To those of us who saw the repercussions of her acts against her own country she will always be a repulsive, repugnant enemy of America. We will never forget, we will never forgive!

    Nancy Reagan.She came out with the slogan for the war on drugs,”Just say No” when it came to drugs.The Conservatives ran with this as one of the greatest ideas of all time and made her an American hero.Hows the war going so far for yah?? Other than that she is a nice lady but what is there to make a movie of?

    • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

      Perhaps if you actually read the article you would see who the movie is about.

    • Mark in LA

      The movie about astrology. Nancy was big on that.

  • http://new.personalliberty.com dwightsr

    I was in South Vietnam risking my life while Hanoi Jane was playing footsie with the Commies. To have her play Nancy Regan is an insult to the Regans, and flinging snot in the face of America. Is there no morality in Hollywood? I won’t see the movie. I wouldn’t bother making it, because it’s not going to make any money.

    • pathos 11

      I’m in lock step with you, Jane, not so Fonda aka Tokyo Rose got away with a criminal treasonous crime if Congress at that time had the balls to declare Viet Nam a legitimate act of war she would have been tried and convicted. She is an out and out bogus fraud communist sympathizer traitor, regardless of her families background while all along being supported by her phony degenerate spineless Hollywood/Washington groupie friends. Fonda playing Nancy Reagan would be like Dolly Parton playing Mother Theresa.

      • sjbbouton

        Now that’s an unfair insult to Dolly Parton. Ms. Parton never did anything even remotely close to posing on VC anti-aircraft guns POINTED AT OUR PLANES. That whore Hanoi Jane should have been forced to spend endless years of turning big rocks into little ones.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Welcome home, Bro! Served in ‘Nam in ’68-’69 with the 1st Cavalry Division (AM). I too will not go see the movies but when it comes to a theatre near me I and several of my buddies will excersise our First Admendment rights by standing our front with our signs saying “HANOI JANE: WE WON’T FORGET!”

      • firefight

        John Wilch, That scene will be played out all over this country at theatres everywhere.
        Lt. “O” Nam Vet 1968 – 1969 Ever stationed at Utapao?

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          Nope, but may have flown over it. Will be in Portland, Ore this June for the 1st Cavalry reunion. Like to see you there.

          Oh, the reason for the TSgt rank I switched over to Ida Air Guard when I couldn’t make E7 in the Army. Served out the rest of my time there, however during that time I was called to Active duty during the Kitty Litter War (Desert Storm).

          Once again, Bro: Welcome Home!

      • firefight

        John, Would love to be there and go face to face but will be out of country at that time. I still like to do fun things like jump out of good airplanes, run off the top of mountains and go underwater for extended periods of time to see what the fich are doing. I’ll visit with you more on this site.

  • 2WarAbnVet

    Fonda is not “Well-known for her … opposition to the Vietnam War”; she is well-known as a vile traitor! Even the depraved subculture of Hollywood must be aware that casting her as a patriotic First Lady is a slap in the face of every veteran and their families.

  • Barbara52

    Hanoi Jane, you make me feel sick inside. My husband was in the Vietnam war and risked his life for South Vietnam to be a free country !! YOU were a traitor to your country !! I ask myself WHY did you come back here ?? If it were up to me you would be either put in jail as a traitor or deported to a Communist country with NO more entry into the United States.
    Men died because of what you did.
    As for playing Nancy Reagan, I WILL NOT go and see that !!! If you feel like you need to play somebody in the movies ……play Hitler. You both had 1 thing in common, killing American soldiers !

    • Mark in LA

      Get it through your head no American risked their live to make South Vietnam free. He risked his life because cowardly politicians thought it the best thing to do for their careers. He risked his life in order to keep the corrupt government of South Vietnam, that the people did not want, in control. Your husband was a pawn in the bigger game – his life, his health, his well being was never even an after thought by the people who sent him there.

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Mark in LA (LaLa Town), you must be oen of those radical retreads because you don’t sound very old.

        I served in Vietnam from Jun ’68 – ’69 and I was there doing what I felt right. I was answering a call to protect people that couldn’t defend themselves because they couldn’t they asked the US to help out. I was damn proud to have done my duty, oh I damn near lost by Brother there in 1970.

        Oh, I feel that some of those anti-establishment jerks that were protesting against us (the Military) being involved over there are now the ones that are now our elected leaders (US Senate and Congess).

      • firefight

        Mark in LA. Your title says it all. You know nothing about that war. The politicians wouldn’t even dignify it by calling it a war. They called it a “conflict.” Let me tell you something. When ordinance is falling all around you and you’re taking direct and indirect fire, it’s a friggin war. You and your political buddies wern’t there to hear the citizens of that countries voices but I was and so was Tsgt. Wilch. Those men, women and children were grateful we were there. They hated Communism and what it was doing to them. You have no idea the attrocities that were being commited to the South Vietnamese by the VC Communists. What we did over there DID matter and those people, when we go back to the villages and hamlets we defended and helped liberate, they hug us and they remember us. With tears in their eyes, they hug us and thank us for what we did for them. Mark, that is something you will never see for yourself and something you will never see in our now Communist news media. Don’t take what you think you know and portray it as something that is fact, because it is not. All you did here is echo the thoughts of people who want you to think that our efforts were meaningless. That makes you their puppet.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Barbara, give your husband a hug and tell him “WELCOME HOME!” from an old beat up Vietnam veteran (’68-’69).

  • T. Jefferson

    This slug needs to be in jail. She should have been executed in the 60′s for crimes against the country.

      the best news will be when the film FLOPS b/c NO ONE old enough to remember VN will see it. talk about ABSURD! the bitch should be in jail, not in films.

    Why not strap a dong on her and have her play Chairman Mao. He is more her speed.

    That is a big Fat Joke of having Hanoi Jane play one of the toughes and bravest first ladies in the history of our country. I is sad to say but I for one will not ever see a movie with Hanoi Jane in it since my Cousin is still MIA in Viet Nam.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Ben, my prayers go out to your cuz.
      I served in ‘Nam from Jun ’68 to Jun ’69 with the 1st Cavalry Division (AM) as a Helicopter Doorgunner.
      When the movie comes to a movie theater near me, I will be excercising my First Admendment Rights along with several Buddies will be standing out front with our signs “HANOI JANE, WE WILL NO FORGET!”

      • carl

        God Bless You and all who had to participate in Johnsons running the “WAR” from the oval office.
        The problem we have in the states today is founded in our “Public Education” also known as introductionation(sp) . The founding Fathers and the documents that created the greatest nation on earth has been under attack for the past 40 + years.
        We see the results in the OWS folk that is backed by the President and his minions .

  • ranger hall

    As a Vet I did not know that Vietnam was a Declared War, I understand that you can not be called a traitor unless it is a declared War, oh well maybe i am Wrong.
    anyway do we call all the Vets and other folks that was againest the undeclared war as Traitors
    I met The Fonda family in Santa monica many years Back, Henry his Wife,and the loser son, and also Jane when she was married to that idiot councilman, which she soon got rid of. My thoughts about Jane was that she was very strong on moving up the ladder,Like most of us,
    about Vietnam later she said what she did and how she did it was a mistake, But she was againest the Undeclared war as a lot of us were. And with Turner he mainly wanted an arm piece, and at that time Jane was one of the hottest items in Hollywood, Man she had a real fine body and looks.
    Anyway we as a people should blame the right folks, and not the Military, We just fight where and when THEY tell us. Just as we are doing Now,and have been for a long time.
    Maybe we should just call all the people againest the Afganistan and Iraq undeclared war Traitors.
    And Nancy man I do not even know why anyone would want to play her part, Cant wait to see how TRUE she is portrayed. Wonder if her hair dresser will be in this movie.

  • ranger hall

    Does anyone know that the Govt changed the Code of Conduct for POWS during Vietnam,and do you know why.
    Im a little weak on this Subject, Maybe some of you Vets out there could help me out.

    • firefight

      The code of conduct was indeed changed. So was the UCMJ with article 15, non-judicial military punishment. In my indoctrination I was told the there was a huge problem during the Korean conflict with POW’s divulging information and with desertion. Hence the changes.

  • Mo Better

    I spit in Hanoi Jane’s face… once again!

    This un-American, anti-American, non-American pile of excrement has made her fortune in the greatest country in the world, for which she has, in appreciation, shown nothing but utter disdain.

    As a Viet Nam era Vet I will never forget what she did and I will never forgive her. The photo of this weasel sitting on an NVA aa gun emplacement beaming her libturd grin while our fellow Americans were losing their lives on the field of battle, will be forever burned into my memory.

    Her selection to play Nancy Reagan in this film is nothing more than a slap to the Reagan presidency. I’d only to to watch her if it was her funeral… and it was free.

    • Ted Crawford

      I’ll gladly forgive her on the very same day I can forget the sites and sounds of my friends as they died!

    • eddie47d

      Blame the politicians! Blame the Secretary of Defense! Blame the Pied Pipers who led us into that false war! Everyone says they wants Freedom of Speech but when someone speaks out against the travesty of Vietnam and educates the American people about the truth of the war you condemn her or anyone else. The politicians know that and they will play the public like a fiddle as they did in Iraq.

  • Ted Crawford

    Jane Fonda is unfit to even wipe Mrs. Reagans backside!

  • SM

    Does anyone know what “BOYCOTT” means. Send this insane casting to the trash bin in the first week if they persist in putting Hanoi Jane in it. Poor Ronald must be turning over in his grave. I would love to hear what Nancy has to say about it.

  • simian pete

    Vietnam, what a war ! You had people protesting against the war ! Then the pro-war folks (that fought WW2) were in Congress ! WOW !!

    Jane Fonda is a good actress ! Hanging out with the Commies in North vietnam sure was a very bad career move. I was only 11 years old in 1973 … You Vietnam veterans have a right to feel any way you want . Some of you forgave her, some of you don’t like her ?

    So Johnny goes off to Vietnam and fights the Communist Internationale . Then he comes home, and instead of hearing “Hurrah” and everyone celebrating, and is spit upon, beaten up, etc. – definitely an uncelebration …

    “Uncelebration” is their such a word ? My spell checker says “no” ..

    You veterans should just blame the voters. The voters, I notice, are always considered innocent ! But they aren’t innocent ! The moral, right and proper thing to say is “Thank You for fighting for us.” Instead the arrogant voters sent you to war and then … well let’s just say it wasn’t “Thank You”.

    Today, the veterans are considered a security risk to our new police state Republic. Thank you again, voters ! The voters elected this paranoid, crazy Congress and President O’ Vomit.

    You voters are the reason we don’t have liberty. If your mad at Jane, be also mad at the voters.

  • marine72

    Just another bad movie I will not get excited about. Maybe they can spoon feed it to the Libtards not on welfare; no, they may have the discretionary $s to waste.

  • Mark in LA

    Funny how all you vets want Fonda to apologize. It seems to me that the apology is owed by the cowards in government who put you into that mess because they didn’t have the guts to fully investigate what was really going on and were more concerned about how their vote would play out in the next election instead of worrying about your lives and livelyhoods and whether there really was a threat to our interests. Kind of like the people who got us into Iraq.

    • carl

      I agree with your premise. I don’t know your age or background but I suspect you are mid thirties and at least two years of college. I lived during this era (not in arms ) but her display and giving up our military for further torture (I mean real torture), pulling out fingernails, stripping skin, cutting eyelids off so you can’t blink to remove the blood trickling down your head from the hair being ripped out of your skull, the breaking of fingers in a timed method to allow the pain to never subside. This person directly caused this and much more because of her distaste for the military and our government.
      I will go to my grave believing that the USA is the greatest Nation on Earth. Do we have problems ? Have we made mistakes ? You can take it to the bank the answer is YES.
      Before you condemn another human being to the atroticities committed by the Viet Cong, I suggest you take the trips I have made to Yeman, Lybia. Somilia & Egypt without the benefit of the Military and then get back to me.
      The torture bit I can confirm from my Cousins who served and either were detained or were involved with the rescue of the detained. The Liberal media did not then or will they now tell the true story.
      Any person who thinks she is worthy of anything but disgust has had the few working brain cell that normally work bathed in drugs or booze.

      • larry

        well said. those too young to have known the horror she caused have no concept of why we hate the rat bastard bitch! had nothing to do w/ ‘protests’. had to do w/ being a traitor to the POW’s. may she ROT IN HELL!!!

  • BunRoe

    “Lest We Forget”.. What a mockery this Country is.. After all these years your still spitting on Jane Fonda. What about Cassius Clay who became a muslim so he wouldn’t have to fight in a war he (as she) did not believe in.. Oh, that’s different.. BS!! Just like the 50 + years of sanctions toward Cuba that’s STILL going on today (because their commies) “Lest We Forget”.. Certainly some producer visualized that Jane would be a good representation of Nancy Reagan, but NOT as sarcasm or to spit back into anybody’s eyes but because she’s a renowned actress and just like all the other actresses who were tested for the part, she won the part. So all you closed minded bigots and right winged ass—-, go back under your rock.. If you don’t like the person then DON’T WATCH THE MOVIE!! Douchbags!

    • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

      I don’t recall Muhammad Ali doing any thing whatsoever like Hanoi Jane did to our soldiers. They are not the same. One will always be remembered as a traitor and it’s not Ali.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Bun, Hanoi Jane was not picked because she was the best, she was pick because of who she is: A SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST BIT…. Oh she probally put out for that slease-bag of a director. Spike Lee is the rat-bastard that published the address (WRONG ONE) he said was Mr. Zimmerman’s. As far as I know he has never appolgized or even been fined by anyone.

  • carl

    You can bet your last nickle (now worth $ 00.2 1/2 cents) that this is one flick that I will not view even on reruns after Mash.

  • sharon

    Hanoi Jane. Benedict Arnold. Same. What a slap in the face of all of us who know what she did. Giving the slips of paper that the POW’s intrusted to her about the true conditions that they were experiencing to their captors. Does she really care that they were tortured mercilessly?
    DISGUSTING. ………….BOYCOTT THE MOVIE!

  • http://www.yoursecuritymyconcern.com Thomas Kersten

    I will NEVER forgive that WITCH (for lack of a better term)! I do not want to hear about the fact that it has been a long time ect. Tell that to the many men that died because this Female of the species, ( I will not call her a woman or a lady) gave aid an comfort to the enemy.
    If those men were here today and if she had not done what she did in N. Viet Nam, maybe I might go see this movie, but I believe that it is totally incorrect to cast a TRAITOR in this role.
    I PROUDLY served 2 tours in Viet Nam, ( ’68 to 70) so I believe that I have a right to say what I think of this WITCH!
    If I ever had the MIF fortune to meet this TRAITOR, I would PROUDLY spit in her face!

  • NamVet 67

    what part can this traitor play,let me see how about a Nancy Reagan turd floating in the toilot.

  • Crystal

    Don’t see the movie.

  • Rebecca

    John W.,

    Oh yeah…you are right…I forgot about WJC. I forgot about him intentionally!

  • Kevin Beck

    I can see one chance of a positive coming from this: If Hanoi Jane’s lines in the movie are so repulsive to her corrupted belief system, then maybe the joy of hearing her say them on the big screen would be enough of a redemption.

    On second thought, even then it wouldn’t be worth seeing the film.

    • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

      Right on, Bro! Theperson you responded too was right in one regard about the Republicans being upset only he forgot that there are some ‘Nam Vets that are also Democrats and ther are among the group that are very upset.
