In response to “How to take our country back” (Jane Fonda, Aug. 31):
I was a naval aviator during the Vietnam Conflict/War and had the absolute honor of listening to and speaking with some returning POWs. Each said that Ms. Fonda’s treasonous visit to North Vietnam only served to exacerbate their horrendous treatment.
Having said that, my brother and I along with millions of other military personnel joined various branches of the service during that time period to protect her rights, and those of other “activists” to say what they wished on American soil.
As would be expected, Fonda’s “special” column in the Washington Post (another left-wing newspaper) was filled with untruths which the Washington Post did not research before printing. Such poor journalism is the stuff of “fake news.”
For example, Fonda candidly admits going “door-to-door” and telling people “Donald Trump’s health care bill would allow … insurance companies to stop covering … preexisting conditions”! This is not true and President Trump on numerous occasions has stated that his/GOP heath care proposal would in fact cover all preexisting conditions! Her statements on this issue are false and her stated effort to “build trust” should be seen for what it is.
Fonda also states that she has learned “over my long life as an activist that people can change” … that may be true for some but she is still the same old Jane Fonda.
