Jane Fonda’s Joyful Activism Spans Decades, From “F.T.A.” To “Fire Drill Fridays”

Published on March 5, 2021

Writer, actress, and activist Jane Fonda is uniquely qualified to comment on the state of activism in this country, having spent decades on the front lines of protest movements around the world. Tonight she tells Stephen about her arrests during the “Fire Drill Fridays” movement she founded, and shares the fascinating story of her role in the 1971 anti-war performances showcased in the recently re-released documentary, “F.T.A.” You can stream “F.T.A.” now on Amazon Prime, and find out how to get involved in Jane’s climate change movement at http://www.firedrillfridays.com. #Colbert #JaneFonda #FireDrillFridays

    D@mmit Colbert, Why do you keep bringing the Traitor on your show. How many times must I try to remind the American people of Historical facts. How soon the American people forget the sacrifices of their military personnel. I can understand the younger generation who never learned about the Vietnam war, but there’s no excuse for the older people. I guess they are the ones who didn’t care when Trump said he “liked people who weren’t captured” or he had the flag raised to full mast over the Whitehouse days early, before the end of the normal morning period after McCain’s death. Who cares if we insult our war heroes and the military dead. Who cares if Fonda gave aid to America’s enemy! Who cares if she sat on the MIG site that shot down American flyers and sat for photo ops with the enemy, and spread and promoted their propaganda. Who cares if she said American POW’s were well treated, even after the war when the men came back and told the American people about being starved and tortured and Fonda then called the POWs liars! Who cares if some of the POWs like Ron Storz were killed by their captors and they never returned home to their Wives and children. Fonda got to continue to enjoy America’s benefits after the war, that others never got to. Quit making her out to be a hero people, she’s a Traitor and she’s not truly remorseful for her mistakes!

    I do love her. For every backwards step she has taken nine forward. She listens, she cares and she can amend. She’s that great place where talent and ethical passion combine. A grand woman.

    Optimistic? Is this a spin? Over 70 million people voted for Trump, voter suppression is taking a hard turn for worse and half the Senate are adamant that the election was rigged.
    You can not be serious.

    Great lady, but the hats gotta go. A string of garlic or onions must be worn if your going to wear one of those ridiculous things.

    I got my awakenging in 1975 during my graduation from the Special Forces Officer’s Course. Our speaker was Col. Aaron Bank, a hero of the OSS in both Europe and Asia. Looking out at our small group of combat veterans he said, “Guys, I hate to tell you, but you deserve to know. Vietnam wasn’t necessary. I knew Ho Chi Minh and he was much more nationalist than communist and we could have worked with him.” And I thought to myself, “Well, ain’t life a bitch.”
