Jane

In World War Two there were at least four Americans who worked for the Nazi's doing propaganda.  They produced, wrote and broadcast propaganda messages directed towards the United States military and civilian population.  They were convicted of treason and sentenced to prison sentences of from six years to as much as life in prison.

Jane Fonda went to North Vietnam during the Vietnam War.  She was several years older than the average American soldier fighting and dying in the war against the Communist Vietnamese.  She had her picture taken, visited POWs and had video of herself sitting in a Communist anti-aircraft gun.

She has never apologized. She has made excuses and claimed ignorance and waffled at every apology. She is sorry it still haunts her, she is sorry people won't forget she was a traitor. If she went to Nazi Germany and posed with anti-aircraft gunners who were shooting down B-17's, would she be forgiven if she apologized, or hung as a traitor?  I consider her a traitor; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
