While the United States prepares for the reopening of the country amid the Chinese coronavirus ravaging the world, we’ll need to be prepared for what’s next.
Like any natural disaster, this coronavirus is going to cost the American taxpayers a lot of money, and we need to be diligent about how the recovery money will be spent.
But now actress and self-proclaimed activist, Jane Fonda, “demands” we do this with coronavirus recovery money.
Instead of using the “Two-time Academy Award winner” prefix, we should instead use “Hanoi Jane” when referring to Jane Fonda. The actress known for “Klute” and “Grace and Frankie” infamously protested in Vietnam at the height of the war in 1972.
Fonda appeared on 10 radio programs to speak out against the U.S. military’s policy in Vietnam and also to beg pilots to cease bombing non-military targets.
But things took a dramatic turn when during that trip, she was photographed seated on an anti-aircraft gun in Hanoi, making it look like she would shoot down American planes.
Hence, this is why she is referred to as “Hanoi Jane.”
Fonda requested a temporary hiatus from Netflix on her hit show “Grace and Frankie” approximately a year ago to protest the federal government’s action on climate change. They’re what’s referred to as “Fire Drill Fridays” – inspired by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg – where protesters “raise awareness” for climate change.
All for that magically elusive natural disaster; climate change.
And now Fonda thinks we should sink our coronavirus recovery money into combatting the Earth’s supposed climate change.
Fonda is demanding that the government allot recovery money to green or sustainable energy as well as to efforts to create a “level playing field” for workers.
During her now-infamous Fire Drill Fridays, Fonda said to the crowd, “These historic sums of stimulus money aren’t going to happen again, maybe even during our lifetimes. And where they go and how they are spent will determine so much about what kind of future we have.”
The future is bright for most of us. It’s ironic Fonda says this because the people who have benefited the most from Donald Trump’s presidency are celebrities like Fonda. They love demanding that you do something when they have way more means to put their money where their mouths are.
Why is the burden on you to “fix” this supposed climate change?
She added, “So while we insist on more funding to heal the effects of this pandemic, we must also insist that the money is used to lay the foundation for a clean, sustainable energy future as well as justice and dignity and a level playing field for all workers. Transforming our industrial base and energy systems can and will creation millions of good jobs. But we must ensure that they guarantee workers a living wage, a union wage, full benefits, a safe workplace, and that they have a say in designing and full rights to collective bargaining.”
This sounds like a bunch of hogwash liberal rhetoric.
If Fonda is so concerned with how the American taxpayers’ money is spent then maybe she should offer up her family fortune to magically pay for it. The Fonda’s fortune spans over 100 years. Henry Fonda has been famous since the 1930s. That’s almost 100 years of money accumulation.
Why doesn’t Fonda donate her personal family fortune instead of deciding how to best spend our tax money? These celebrities are totally clueless.
