Maybe I'll make it a series: Americans from history that some of our friends think should have been executed



From Urban Legends:

[Concerning] Fonda's tour of North Vietnam in 1972, during which she posed for photo ops with communist soldiers and broadcasted anti-American propaganda over Radio Hanoi. She also participated in a staged press conference accompanied by American servicemen held captive by the Viet Cong, the purpose of which was to "prove" that the POWs weren't being mistreated by their captors. Years afterward when the then-released POWs described the very real torture and degradation they had suffered at the hands of the North Vietnamese, Fonda dismissed them as "hypocrites and liars."

Those basic facts aren't under dispute. Fonda's behavior at that time, considered treasonous by some, earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane" among the veterans and POWs of the Vietnam War, some of whom hate her to this day.


Delawardem [before redaction]:

You are a traitor to the United States of America, and you deserve to be arrested, tried, and put to death in as quick a manner as possible.


Delawaredem [after redaction]:

No, you just hate America. And you are so evil that you are personally acquianted with Lucifer himself. You have tea with him every Tuesday.


Yes, it is ridiculous to demand that Delawaredem condemn Jane Fonda as a traitor and call for her arrest, trial, and execution 37 years after the fact [even though treason is one crime without a statute of limitations]....

It is about as ridiculous as his demand that everyone with different political views hop to the table and issue condemnations upon his demand....

The only thing I can think of here is that someone let his Zoloft prescription lapse.

If only there were some other option besides "My country, right or wrong" and "Not my country, right or wrong"...
