Jane Fonda should not be portraying Nancy Reagan

She just couldn't leave well enough alone! Jane Fonda was, and is, a traitor to this country and the young men who served her and are serving her.

"Get a life," is what she said to those who are boycotting her new movie "The Butler." What I say is give a life, Jane — you have shown little contrition and no compassion for the veterans of this country. It is time that you paid back the veterans and their families. I say you should write a letter to each and every soldier killed and wounded in Vietnam, telling them how sorry you are for their losses and that you were in the wrong for doing what you did.

The second asinine and telling statement she made was, "If it creates hoopla, it will cause more people to see the movie. I figured it would tweak the right. Who cares?" Well, Janie, I care. My brothers both served in Vietnam after you were there; one died from Agent Orange and the other from a heart disease he contracted there. They no longer have a life, and their children suffer to this day. I no longer have brothers — do you?

"The controversy will trigger more publicity, and generally in Hollywood any publicity is better than no publicity," crisis communications expert Glenn Selig anticipated.

My guess is Harvey Weinstein is thrilled that there is so much attention being paid to the movie. So again, for the Hollywoodies it is about money — not honor, not thankfulness, not pride, not respect, not tribute — not anything other than money! Shame on you and anyone involved in this movie.

Boycott is not enough — protest is, name-calling is, Occupy Hollywood is. Go back to Vietnam where you belong. Go back to Ted Turner while you are at it.
