She should have listen to the beatles "if you go around caring pictures of Chairman Mao you ain't' going to make it with anyone anyhow. Apparently they were often asked to donate to various movements "if you want money for minds that hate all I can tell you brother is you have wait".

    Jack has put up a good defense of Fonda but in so doing he is defending a political and cultural revolution that has much to answer for. We can start analyzing the problem by studying how a radical and often hateful anti war movement gave us Nixon and Cambodia. Even if you agree with what Fonda did there is amply evidence that it was counter productive and poorly thought out.
    Your assessment is dead center of the X Ring!
    Can't rep you yet, too soon.

    2. She has access to people that matter. What if she were at the White House at a small dinner with the Obama's? Her opinions might influence their opinions.

    Sure Charton Heston did a gr8 job for the NRA. But coming out as a conservative in hollyweird is usually the kiss of death. Same with the UC system, they will destroy you with malice and venom...

    They matter for two reasons:

    1. He celebrity status means she has appeared in the public eye and the things she chooses to say, do, and act in, can have influence on people in general. For example, she was in the movie "The China Syndrome."
    Never mind that it was a total fiction and had no engineering or scientific basis, it influenced those who had no knowledge of nuclear power in an negative way.

    2. She has access to people that matter. What if she were at the White House at a small dinner with the Obama's? Her opinions might influence their opinions.
    Good points but isn't the only counter to that other celebrities?

    That's the Left in general. They never take responsibility for the fd up ideas they foist on society. They just walk away from the wreckage looking for another "good deed" to do.

    That's the Fonda thing: "I didn't mean any harm by going to N. Vietnam. I just wanted to empathize with America's enemies. It thought if we all sang Kumbayah, ate some Smores around a campfire we could settle our differences."


    She gets a lot of attention because of the status that comes with celebrity which she partially inherited. It is also true that she has lived a life where she has not been as accountable as people with less means may be. Some people resent this is the same way they resent O.J. Simpson's popularity but the accountability of the rich and famous is another discussion.

    What we should be discussing is not the views of a fairly irrelevant individual but why society equates celebrity with political relevancy. Why does Jane Fonda or her views matter?

    Jack appears to feel victimized by the somewhat cool reception he has gotten for some of his views.

    Because the media plasters them everywhere as if their vapid views do matter, which creates a great deal of resentment among a population sick and tired of the "celebrity syndrome".

    That's my guess.

    That's twice you've claimed I've called you something. Have we a prior relationship here?
