UPDATE: 09-04-2009 JANE FONDA ACCUSES FILM FESTIVAL OF CREATING PROPAGANDA ...
The New York Post's famous Page Six is reporting ...
HOLLYWOOD studios love to use the Toronto Film Festival as a launching pad for Oscar contenders, but this year there's a different buzz. In an online letter to event chiefs, an array of notables -- Jane Fonda, Naomi Klein, Danny Glover and David Byrne among them -- have protested the festival's choice to spotlight the city of Tel Aviv and 10 Israeli moviemakers, Post film editor V.A. Musetto reports. 'Intentionally or not,' the letter says, '[the festival] has become complicit in the Israeli propaganda machine.' A week earlier, a Canadian filmmaker pulled his short from the event in protest. But the festival, which opens Thursday, refused to back down, insisting it would continue to show "the best films we can find."
You must admit, the traitorous bitch Jane Fonda does know something about propaganda. And often creates it herself with her stupid braying. This overly-spoiled useful idiot, as usual, has apparently allied herself with the wrong side and seems to much rather stand up for those corrupt religious fanatics who oppress women and condone state-supported murder, rape and mutilation -- as well as terrorism -- as a normal daily occurance. For those who pretend to care, Fonda was once married to radical Marxist/activist Tom Hayden. Seems she never left the 60's and the people who actually thought she was an actress.
Original blog entry ...
Liberal elites continue to slime America with their hysterical braying …
I was particularly incensed when a well-known author provided a foreign paper with an incendiary interview containing newsworthy quotes.
According to the New York Observer …
“Erica Jong Tells Italians Obama Loss 'Will Spark the Second American Civil War. Blood Will Run in the Streets”
“It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious.”
“A few days ago, Jong, the author and self-described feminist, gave an interview to the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the choicest bits of which were brought to my attention by the reliably sharp-eyed Christian Rocca, the U.S. correspondent of Il Foglio, who published excerpts on his Camillo blog.”
“Basically, Jong says her fear that Obama might lose the election has developed into an "obsession. A paralyzing terror. An anxious fever that keeps you awake at night." She also says that her friends Jane Fonda and Naomi Wolf are extremely worried that Obama will be sabotaged by Republican dirty tricks, and that if an Obama loss indeed comes to pass, the result will be a second American Civil War.”
Second American Civil War?
First, Erica Jong is not only playing the race card, she is fear-mongering and apparently threatening America with her interpretation of the consequences of not voting for Obama.
I wonder if she realizes that she is describing a behavior is characteristic of the radical far-left and crazies who think violence and mayhem are the appropriate reaction to every perceived slight. The wrong candidate is elected: riot, loot and burn your neighborhood. Someone publishes a cartoon: riot, loot and burn your neighborhood. A wrong judicial decision: riot, loot and burn your neighborhood.
By feeding into her tortured liberal fears, she is not only promoting a racial stereotype of a community, but she is also encouraging crazies on the other side to further prepare for what they regard is an enviable race war.
So, once again, we have a politically ignorant person making pronouncements to a foreign press which only serves to provide aid and comfort to our enemies, both foreign and domestic – reinforcing the concept that America is a bad actor on the world stage and that the democratic passing of power in an election is a rigged sham.
And speaking of our enemies …
Jane Fonda is at the top of my list as an unindicted traitor: a person who, in time of war, gave aid and comfort to our enemies. A person who mockingly sat on an anti-aircraft gun in Viet Nam while downed pilot John McCain was being tortured in a nearby prison. It is hard for me to write anything about Jane Fonda without using the words “traitorous bitch.”
The most prominent example of a clash between
Aside from visiting villages, hospitals, schools, and factories, Fonda also posed for pictures in which she was shown applauding North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gunners, was photographed peering into the sights of an NVA anti-aircraft artillery launcher, and made ten propagandistic Tokyo Rose-like radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military
Fonda apparently didn't notice (or care) that the POWs were delivering their lines under duress or find it unusual the she was not allowed to visit the prisoner-of-war camp (commonly known as the "Hanoi Hilton") itself.
She merely went home and told the world that "[the POWs] assured me they were in good health. When I asked them if they were brainwashed, they all laughed. Without exception, they expressed shame at what they had done."
She did, however, charge that North Vietnamese POWs were systematically tortured in American prison-of-war camps. <Source>
The far-left …
The choice could not be clearer in the upcoming election:
On one hand you have Barack Obama, representing the far-left liberals, whose only accomplishments seem to be having been born bright, telegenic and with an actor’s skill at becoming a scripted character. A person who has openly and knowingly associated with terrorists, both foreign and domestic, for years. A man without a record of accomplishment. A man who speaks of change but has no record of ever exerting the type of leadership it takes to bring about change in a hyper-partisan environment.
And the other hand, you have John McCain, a decorated war hero who was tortured unmercifully while far-left liberals cavorted with our sworn enemies and declared America to be the despicably bad actor on the world stage. And while you may not share all of John McCain’s political ideas (and I don’t), you know that this is a man who will defend America from her enemies while others are content to “discuss the issues” while toasting them with Champaign.
Who is Erica Jong?
A much-married feminist whose first novel, Fear of Flying, was all about women’s sexual desires. Many of her novels deal with women’s issues and she appears to be one freaky individual. She is known to be an outspoken adherent of the 9-11 conspiracy theory. All-in-all, she is your typical far-left, au courant, limousine liberal who apparently hates her country, and Republicans in particular. It is curious that a feminist would not rise to support the only woman running for office and one who apparently has succeeded in achieving the feminist dream: power and equality with men in their chosen field.
“Here's a translation of Jong's more spirited quotes to the Milan-based Corriere, as selected by Rocca.”
"The record shows that voting machines in America are rigged."
I wonder if she realizes that the democrats have a distinguished history in vote rigging and vote buying?
"My friends Ken Follett and Susan Cheever are extremely worried. Naomi Wolf calls me every day.”
“Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can't cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves."
"My back is also suffering from spasms, so much so that I had to see an acupuncturist and get prescriptions for Valium."
Compare this to the real pain that John McCain suffers each and every day while he vigorously campaigns for an America he believes in. To bring bi-partisan reform to our ailing government instead of whining about how bad the country must be or how much he really hurts.
I am tired of actors and actresses thinking that their accomplishments on the screen, where like Barack Obama, they convincingly mouth the words authored by others, entitle them to hold forth on what is ailing America and have us believe that their words should somehow be taken with more importance than an ordinary citizen.
"After having stolen the last two elections, the Republican Mafia…"
"If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it's not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets."
"Bush has transformed America into a police state, from torture to the imprisonment of reporters, to the Patriot Act."
Sound familiar. Sound like another far-left liberal like Jane Fonda, John Kerry or John Murtha.
She also laments that not all of America's men of letters share her devotion to Obama.
I wonder what Hemmingway would have said were he alive?
"Tom Wolfe and John Updike are men of the right and Philip Roth is at this point a hermit who leads a monastic life in Connecticut, far from everything and everybody."
Luckily, she said there is her and Michael Chabon, who, she says, have "taken the place of Susan Sontag and Norman Mailer respectively."
They have the same political sensibilities, she said, but a better "sense of humor."
What can YOU do?
Ignore the ignorant, America-bashing politicians and the sycophantic actor/actress supporters.
Never forgive Jane Fonda and those of her ilk for their traitorous actions in a time of war.
Decide whether you want an effete, elite snob like Barack Obama who is willing to sit down with our enemies to talk about the world’s problems or a John McCain who has the courage of his convictions and will defend America against her enemies.
Imagine what Obama could say to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he declares Israel must be wiped from the face of this Earth and only by bringing about a holocaust can the next Imam appear and purge the world of the infidels so everyone can live in an Islamic state?
Especially when he would be among the first killed for practicing his adopted Christian-faith.
Get out there and VOTE or suffer in silence when those who do not believe as you do, confiscate your property with taxes to support their promise of wealth-redistribution.
