Hanoi Jane. I get tired of railing against this Vietnam-era turncoat, but she’s like the herpes virus — once it’s in the system you just can’t get rid of it. So when discomfort caused by old radicals flares up, you’ve got to camphor it one more time.
Hollyweird has most recently cast the most nefarious thespian since John Wilkes Booth as former First Lady Nancy Reagan in the upcoming film, “The Butler.” But, as Capt. Phil Jennings (USMC, Ret.) points out,
[…] while she was talking about portraying the wife of preeminent Cold Warrior Ronald Reagan … Fonda, with no evident sense of irony, was wearing a shirt bearing the image of herself as Hanoi Jane. It was a raised middle finger to the Vietnam veterans she once said she was sorry she hurt.
…Veterans of the conflict in Southeast Asia never forgave Fonda for giving aid and comfort to the enemy…Now, apparently, Hanoi Jane is back. The hard left view of Vietnam has become institutionalized, and she can fly her true colors once again. She is not alone.
Last week…Obama, meeting with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang, repeated the myth that Ho Chi Minh was an admirer of Thomas Jefferson and the principles of the Founders. In fact Ho was a founding member of the French Communist Party, and a committed Stalinist. He used Jefferson’s words to try to curry favor with the United States at the end of World War Two, seeking sympathy in his struggle against French colonialism. But this was a cynical ploy that failed. When Ho took power, anyone who openly espoused Jefferson’s ideals was asking to be liquidated. The only people who believed in Ho the Jefferson worshipper were American “useful idiots.” But Mr. Obama was weaned in that milieu, the Ayers/Wright/Alinksy radical wasteland.
