Are there still people in 2015 who resent Jane Fonda's negative role in the Vietnam War?
I do resent her role. I STILL do.She has made her mea culpa, and I do respect her, for that. But her actions portrayed, and foretold what might be expected in the future, and what actually came to pass.I refer, here, to the gratuitous interjection of celebrity opinions on matters which they are not well qualified to address.And so, when Barbara Streisand or Tom Cruise align themselves with some particular point of view or agenda, many follow on account of fan loyalty. That’s a nice gesture, but does nothing to advance the thing they promote, based on the facts. Yet, people believe that it does.When Jane embraced the antiaircraft weapons of a brutal regime, she became a tool of that regime. The questions as to justification for the US actions are important, in their own right, but are not answered by a glamour women hanging out with the opposing force. And let’s be honest, here: Jane was not famed for a profound intellect; she was esteemed for her presumed sexual properties, and for some “pretty good” acting. Now and then.If Jane wanted to tell US service people who were engaged in the conflict that she loved them and wanted an early end to the conflict, she had many ways to do so other then an identity with the enemy. The choice of that venue expressed no solicitude for US citizens who were fighting and dying for a cause, but rather her personally held idea that government policy was corrupt or poorly informed. And to prove it, she took the side of the enemy.What we have inherited from her behavior is a celebrity community some of whose members presume, apparently, that their popularity qualifies them to opine on matters far beyond their ken. And so, people hang on every word of Whoopi Goldberg when she gives her opinion about global warming, or about almost anything.One result has been the high interest in “channeling,” proposed by Shirey McClaine and championed by her followers.Another is Donald Trump, who has trafficked on popularity, rather than on logic and facts.Thank you, Jane.Take what you can use, and leave the rest behind.
