Jane Fonda Suffers Another Episode of Socialist Mental Illness

Oct. 14, 2019

Ever since being infected with the mental illness called socialism, octogenarian actress Jane Fonda has had recurring bouts of anti-social behavior. The latest occurred on Friday when she deliberately and intentionally invited her arrest, along with 15 others so infected, for unlawfully demonstrating in front of the U.S. Capitol.

When conservative radio host and author Michael Savage wrote "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder," it stayed at the top of the New York Times' best-seller list for three weeks. Although he never mentioned Jane Fonda by name, she has for nearly 55 years served as Exhibit A for the condition.

So afflicted was Fonda that she named her children after communist revolutionaries. When she became pregnant by French director Roger Vadim (who, according to DiscoverTheNetworks, introduced her to French communists who first infected her with the disease), she named her daughter Vanessa after Vanessa Redgrave. Redgrave's radical history as a supporter of the Communist Workers' Revolutionary Party and co-founder of the Marxist Party, among other communist affiliations, earns her four pages at DiscoverTheNetworks.

When Fonda became pregnant by revolutionary Tom Hayden, they named their son Troy, whose name was originally spelled Troi after a Viet Cong hero, Nguyen Van Troi. Van Troi was executed by the South Vietnamese government after failing in his attempt to assassinate Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.

So mentally unbalanced was Fonda that she spent years telling American college students: "If you understood what communism was, you would hope … you would pray on your knees … that we would some day become communist. I, as a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism."

Her illness led her to commit treason against the United States. With her anti-American actions in Vietnam, she prolonged the war that led eventually to the entire country becoming communist. As North Vietnamese Colonel Bui Tin explained in a postwar interview with The Wall Street Journal, the American antiwar movement "was essential to our strategy. Support for the war from our rear [China] was completely secure while the American rear was vulnerable. Every day our leadership would listen to world news over the radio at 9 a.m. to follow the growth of the American antiwar movement. Visits to Hanoi by people like Jane Fonda ... gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses."

Last Friday's episode began with a press release that the similarly afflicted media immediately happily reported:

She will be joined at every "Fire Drill Friday" through at least mid-January by celebrities, scientists, economists, and people from impacted communities who will speak and some of whom will invite arrest.

Inspired by the growing movement of young climate strikers, Fonda decided to move to the nation's capital for four months to take up their baton.

The fine for illegally demonstrating is $500 and/or 90 days in jail. If Fonda is jailed, it would end this final curtain call for the aging octogenarian with a whimper.

On the other hand, if she is let off with just paying the fine, she'll be back, every Friday, protesting one or another of the far-left's favorite topics: clean water, clean air, green energy, and so forth. In an interview with the Washington Post, Fonda said, "I'm going to have a rally every Friday. It'll be called 'Fire Drill Friday' and we're going to engage in civil disobedience and we're going to get arrested every Friday. It's as simple as this: we have, according to the IPCC [the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] 12 years, but that was a year ago. So … we have 11 years left. Eleven years to do something that has never been done in human history. And if we don't do it, huge parts of the planet are going to be uninhabitable, by the way."

Perhaps this latest episode of the mental illness called liberalism, socialism or communism that has afflicted her for five decades will be her last.
