No family in Hollywood history is more industry royalty like the Fondas. Screen legend Henry Fonda (“The Grapes of Wrath”) and Frances Seymour Brokaw gave birth to Jane (Barbarella) and recently deceased, Peter (“Easy Rider”).
They’re Hollywood royalty because Henry, Peter and Jane all carved their own path in the industry, albeit the children had some nepotism help. Nevertheless, the 81-year-old actress has won two Academy Awards for Best Actress for “Klute” and “Coming Home.”
And obnoxious liberals celebrated Jane Fonda’s arrest on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. over the weekend.
Jane Fonda was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won two from 1970-1987, but although she has a hit show, “Grace and Frankie” right now, it had been a long time since she had been on the Hollywood map.
Nevertheless, she’s one of those Hollywood icons who will always be revered by the industry and liberal fans everywhere.
Jane was arrested for “crowding, obstructing or incommoding,” on the steps of the Capitol Building on Friday afternoon when she was protesting climate change.
U.S. Capitol police zip-tied her hands with chants from the crowd saying, “We love you, Jane!”
The 81-year-old actress, a longtime liberal activist, seemed to be looking for trouble with the hopes of being dragged off to jail. It’s the same thing comedian Amy Schumer did when she was protesting now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.
A Capitol Policeman asked Schumer, “Do you want to be arrested?” to which, Schumer politely responded, “Yes, please.” It was clearly a celebrity political ploy to gain favor when her career was spiraling downwards with back-to-back box-office disasters.
However, Jane Fonda doesn’t really need the attention to revive her career and yet she wanted that spotlight arrest anyway. In fact, Jane is planning to spend months in D.C. for a series of sit-ins and rallies and even asked Netflix for an extended period of time off from “Grace and Frankie,” co-starring Lily Tomlin.
And whom do you think inspired Jane? Take a wild guess.
Yes, it’s none other than Swedish 16-year-old climate change activist, Greta Thunberg, whom inspired her.
Of course, liberals gushed over Jane being arrested.
Here’s a video of Capitol Police taking her into custody.

Benny Johnson said it best with this tweet:
An accurate headline would read:
Jane Fonda Seeks Attention By Doing Something Illegal, Asking To Be Arrested – Police Oblige Reluctantly

This is just a publicity stunt. No more, no less.
