    Actress Jane Fonda said in a statement posted on her website today that the QVC television channel cancelled an appearance they had scheduled with her today to promote her new book "Prime Time," blaming the cancellation on what she called "well funded and organized political extremist groups."

    In the same statement Fonda said, "I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us."

    In 1972, during the Vietnam War, Fonda took a two-week trip to North Vietnam, where she was photographed sitting on an antiaircraft gun that North Vietnamese forces otherwise used for shooting at American planes.

    When she returned from her sojourn in Vietnam, as Time Magazine reported at the time, she accused U.S. forces of deliberately trying to bomb and destroy dikes, whose destruction could have caused the death of many civilians.

    "The outcry was joined by Actress-Activist Jane Fonda," Time reported in its August 7, 1972 edition. "Returning from a two-week trip to Hanoi, where among other things she interviewed several American prisoners of war, she presented a 20-minute film of the visit at a New York press conference that purported to show several recent bomb craters in dikes near Nam Sach, 40 miles southeast of Hanoi, and further damage near the provincial capital of Nam Dinh.

    "Hardly a dispassionate witness," Time continued, she said: 'I believe in my heart, profoundly, that the dikes are being bombed on purpose.' From firsthand observation and from pictures shown her by the North Vietnamese, she concluded: Not only the dikes are being bombed, but hydraulic systems, sluice gates, pumping stations and dams as well. The worst damage is done by bombs that fall on both sides of the dikes, causing deep fissures that weaken the base of the dikes.'"

    A New York Times review of Fonda's 2005 memoir reported that Fonda apologized in the book for being photographed on the North Vietnamese antiaircraft gun.

    "As she has before, Ms. Fonda apologizes for being photographed laughing and clapping while sitting on an antiaircraft gun in Hanoi

    Good for QVC!!

    I just found her website.

    This was her blog post on Saturday.

    It's the Clinton-Obama philosophy - if you say it didn't happen, by golly, people should believe you, no matter what a lying POS you are.

    ************************

    I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, “Prime Time,” about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear. I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups. And that they did it without talking to me first. I have never shied away from talking about this as I have nothing to hide. I could have pointed out that threats of boycotts are nothing new for me and have never prevented me from having best selling books and exercise DVDs, films, and a Broadway play. Most people don’t buy into the far right lies. Many people have reached out to express how excited they were about my going onto QVC and hearing about my book.

    Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us. I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths. In this case, they denied a lot of people the chance to hear about a book that can help make life better, easier and more fulfilling. I am deeply grateful for all of the support I have been getting since this happened, including from my Vietnam Veterans friends.

    Amen, sister.

    Some supporters on her blog have opined that the Vietnam War ended 40 years ago.

    Nazi war criminals were prosecuted far beyond that time frame.

    There's no disputing the fact that Jane Fonda toured North Vietnam in 1972, that she engaged in what amounted to a propaganda campaign on behalf of the Communists, and that she participated in an orchestrated "press conference" distorting the truth about the treatment of American POWs. There's no denying that she defamed the POWs by calling them liars when they later spoke out about their plight. She should have thought about her future when she did these things. She didn't, and now she pays for it! I say great news! I hope this haunts her till the day she dies!

    ...neither did the Prisoners of War that she betrayed at the Hanoi Hilton...she is entitled to her opinions; her opinions and past are going to haunt her, forever.

    Awwwwwwwwww, toooooooo bad!!!!!!!! Boo hoo. :mad:

    Jane's going to waiting a long, long time if she's looking for forgiveness from me and all the American soldiers she insulted. Maybe she should return to Vietnam and appear on one of their TV shows. I'm sure the commies will love her over there.
