Veterans Protest “The Butler” After “Hanoi Jane” Fonda is Chosen To Play Nancy Reagan

Jane Fonda was a traitor to this country during the Vietnam War in the true sense of the word. By that, I mean she deserved to be put on trial for treason, convicted and hung by the neck until dead. An absolutely loathsome human being like Fonda deserves to be treated like a pariah; yet as a thumb in the eye to conservatives, she was chosen to play Nancy Reagan in the film “The Butler.” There are some veterans who are very upset about that.

Jane Fonda’s turn as Nancy Reagan in the new film “The Butler” is angering veterans across the country, and “Hanoi Jane” isn’t doing much to help the situation.

An infamously vocal liberal, Fonda sparked controversy in 1972 when she visited enemy territory in North Vietnam and was photographed sitting on top of an anti-aircraft battery. That picture and her opposition to the war – she was once quoted calling American soldiers murderers – earned her the nickname “Hanoi Jane.”

Now, veterans are outraged that “Hanoi Jane” is playing Nancy Reagan, beloved wife of staunch military supporter and conservative President Ronald Reagan, in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler.” Many veterans’ groups are picketing the film outside at their local movie theaters.

“I was outraged that [the makers of the film] would do stunt casting and have this traitor to our nation be cast portraying someone so honorable,” Larry Reyes, a 20-year Navy veteran who lives in South Carolina, told “‘Hanoi Jane’ should not make one penny in our nation, one she has betrayed.”

Jane Fonda is not only a disgrace, it’s disgraceful that the people behind The Butler cast her as Nancy Reagan and lied to smear the Reagans in the film. It would be worth asking them if they have no shame, but since people from Hollywood are involved, we already know the answer to that question.
