FW: Fwd: Barbara Walters on Jane Fonda AMEN 1000
> PLEASE TAKE THE TIME AND READ THIS .
> PASS THIS ON TO EVERYBODY YOU KNOW.
> Barbara Walters on Jane Fonda:
> Jane Fonda was on 3 times this week talking about her new book. . . and
how good she feels in her 70s. . . She still does not know what she did
wrong. . ..
> Her book just may not make the bestseller list if more people knew.
> Barbara Walters said: Thank you all. Many died in Vietnam for our
freedoms. I did not like Jane Fonda then and I don't like her now. She can
lead her present life the way she wants and perhaps SHE can forget the
past, but we DO NOT have to stand by without comment and see her honored"
as a "Woman of the Century."
> (I remember this well.)
> For those who served and/or died. . .
> NEVER FORGIVE A TRAITOR.
> SHE REALLY WAS A TRAITOR!!!
> And now President Obama wants to honor her!!!
> In Memory of Lt. C. Thomsen Wieland, who spent 100 days at the Hanoi
Hilton [infamous North Vietnam prison] --
> IF YOU NEVER FORWARDED ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE. FORWARD THIS SO THAT
EVERYONE WILL KNOW !
> A TRAITOR IS ABOUT TO BE HONORED. KEEP THIS MOVING ACROSS AMERICA.
> This is for all the kids born in the 70s and after who do not remember,
and didn't have to bear the burden that our fathers, mothers and older
brothers and sisters had to bear.
> Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century."
> Barbara Walters writes: Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still
countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea
of our country, but specific men who served and sacrificed during the
> The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry
Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF Survival
School was a POW in Ho Lo Prison, the "Hanoi Hilton."
> Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in
clean PJ's, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American "peace
activist" the "lenient and humane treatment" he'd received. He spat at Ms.
Fonda, was clubbed, and was dragged away. During the subsequent beating, he
fell forward onto the camp commandant 's feet, which sent that officer
> In 1978, the Air Force Colonel still suffered from double vision (which
permanently ended his flying career) from the commandant's frenzied
application of a wooden baton.
> From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). He spent 6
years in the "Hanoi Hilton". . . the first three of which his family only
knew he was "missing in action." His wife lived on faith that he was still
alive. His group, too, got the cleaned-up, fed and clothed routine in
preparation for a "peace delegation" visit.
> They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that
they were alive and still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of
paper, with his Social Security number on it, in the palm of his hand. When
paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each
man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: "Aren't you sorry
you bombed babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane treatment from
your benevolent captors?" Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed
her their sliver of paper.
> She took them all without missing a beat. . . At the end of the line and
once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she
turned to the officer in charge and handed him all the little pieces of
> Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Colonel Carrigan was almost
number four but he survived, which is the only reason we know of her
actions that day.
> I was a civilian economic development advisor in Vietnam, and was
captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in 1968, and
held prisoner for over 5 years.
> I spent 27 months in solitary confinement; one year in a cage in
Cambodia; and one year in a 'black box' in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese
captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in
a leprosarium in Banme Thuot, South Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle
near the Cambodian border. At one time, I weighed only about 90 lbs. (My
normal weight is 170 lbs.)
> We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals."
> When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political
officer if I would be willing to meet with her. I said yes, for I wanted to
tell her about the real treatment we POWs received. . . and how different
it was from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted
by her as "humane and lenient."
> Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees, with my
arms outstretched with a large steel weight strapped on my hands, and
beaten with a bamboo cane.
> I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda soon after I was released.
I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She never did
> These first-hand experiences do not exemplify someone who should be
honored as part of "100 Years of Great Women." Lest we forget. . . "100
Years of Great Women" should never include a traitor whose hands are
covered with the blood of so many patriots.
> There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Hanoi
Jane's participation in blatant treason, is one of them. Please take the
time to forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually
end up on her computer, and she needs to know that we will never forget.
