Hanoi Jane Wants to ‘Take Back Our Government’

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.”

Jane Fonda Defends Hanoi Trip, NFL Protests, Admits: ‘No, I’m Not Proud of America’

“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.”

‘I hope I get arrested’: Jane Fonda sides with First Nations against Kinder Morgan pipeline

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 Blames Patriarchy for Rise of Terrorism

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.

Jane Fonda Plans Shrine to Herself

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.

Jane Fonda to Navy Veteran: “Get a life”

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.)
