At the 2018 EMA Benefit Gala, all these elements were brought together under the same roof, where there was much wailing and grinding of teeth. The nonprofit organization Environmental Media Association (EMA) honored Jane Fonda, actress Elizabeth Olsen, Snoop Dogg, and others with awards. In Fonda’s acceptance speech, she preached, “This is an existential crisis that we’re in.” She also made a sales pitch for the progressive vote, saying, “We have to do everything we can to take back the house in November. If anything can save us, it’s gonna be taking back our government.”
Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda, also known for her decades of political activism, has teamed with a co-founder of Black Lives Matter to promote a proposed ballot measure that would fundamentally transform the largest sheriff’s department in the world.
“I don’t know. All I know is, and I say this as a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, that the Democratic party has failed us, the Clintons failed us, and in a way the Obama Administration–they’ve all neglected the very people who voted for Donald Trump, who used to be the base of the Democrat party. These people are in such pain, and they are so angry.”
On last night’s show, Robbie Picard of Oilsands Strong told me about his confrontation with actress and activist Jane Fonda, who flew in to Alberta to criticize the oil sands on behalf of Greenpeace.
The actress and social activist warned that the former Secretary of State would face backlash from the nation’s ‘toxic masculinity’ if she were to become the first female President of the United States.
There was a march yesterday in Toronto which protested, well, pretty much everything (with the exception, perhaps, of trans-fats and carnivorism). It was called the “March for Jobs, Justice and the Climate,” and it attracted a wide array of the pissed off and the disgruntled, including aging activist/Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda.
In 1970, Jane Fonda was arrested while marching with indigenous people during the occupation of Fort Lawton in Seattle, Wa.
Forty-five years later, the Academy Award-winning actress says she’s willing to be placed in handcuffs again while defending British Columbia’s coast from oil tankers.
“I have a hit TV show now. If I get arrested it’ll bring even more attention to the issue,” Fonda deadpanned in an interview with The Canadian Press. “I hope I get arrested.”
Jane Fonda told the Associated Press Wednesday that patriarchy, not terrorism, is the most burdensome issue facing the world today, and asserted that Islamic militants are likely lashing out because activists like her have challenged their male power structure.
“The most intractable problem that humanity faces is the problem of patriarchy,” said Fonda, which according to her can partially account for the rise in terrorism.
And here was me thinking the old lizard had converted to Christianity or something
“So, while meditating today an idea came to me: I’m going to create a shrine to myself – or, at least, the self I wish to be, the self who began to manifest when I was a young girl before the s–t hit the fan,” [Fonda wrote in a blog post].
The “shrine” will be a small place filled with items that remind Fonda of “the qualities that represent my best self.” So far, she plans to include a school report from the fourth grade.
..She’ll spend the new year collecting objects and symbols that “remind me that I’m brave.”
I actually feel sorry for her. Slightly. God, Henry must have been a crappy father.
The horrible woman is playing Nancy Reagan in some movie. Asked whether she’s a good person to portray a great conservative president’s wife, she said “If it creates hoopla, it will cause more people to see the movie… I figured it would tweak the right. Who cares?”
(BTW, have you ever thought to yourself “you know who would be perfect to play Richard Nixon? John Cusack, that’s who!” Of course you haven’t. Maybe Harvey Weinstein is going senile or something.)
