Actress Jane Fonda: ‘I Am Proud Of The Resistance Against Trump, I Urge Everyone To Keep On…’ (VIDEO)

Hollywood star Jane Fonda recently stated that she isn’t proud of the US these days, but she is pleased with the individuals who keep on protesting against Donald Trump’s administration.

BBC’s Stephen Sackur asked Fonda on “HARDtalk” about her long lasting political involvement, beginning with her going to North Vietnam back in 1972.

She stated that she doesn’t regret going there, but still there is one moment that she would like to erase from her memory.

“The thing that I regret is that on my last day there, I made the mistake of going to a ceremony at an anti-aircraft gun,” she stated. “It wasn’t being used. There were no airplanes or anything like that. There was a ceremony. I was asked to sing and people were laughing and so forth and I was led, and I sat down.”

“And then I got up and as I walked away, I realized, ‘Oh my gosh. It’s going to look like I am against my own country’s soldiers and siding with the enemy, which is the last thing in the world that was true,” she proceeded.


Sackur then asked her for her opinion about many movie and music stars protesting President Trump and whether she was “proud of America today”


“I don’t know, all I know is, and I say this as a dyed in wool Democrat, the Democratic Party has failed us,”Fonda stated. “Clinton failed us, and in a way the Obama administration have all neglected the very people who voted for Trump, who used to be the base of the Democratic Party.”

“Let me ask you a simple question: are you proud of America today?” Sackur said.

“No, but, I’m proud of the resistance,” she stated. “I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core.”

Sackur then asked her what would she do if she was in the same situation like NFL players. Would she protest with kneeling?

“I would take a knee; I would take two knees. I would get on all fours if necessary,” Fonda answered.

“It’s a very, very, very, hard thing to do. You don’t get anything out of it, as the person who has been victimized. But it’s important that it come out,” Fonda said of the many women who came forward for these articles, with allegations the Hollywood mega-producer sexually harassed and/or assaulted them over decades.

She cautioned against characterizing Weinstein’s years-long abuse as being “some unique, horrific” case, saying “this goes on all the time.”

It’s this male entitlement – in Hollywood and everywhere, in offices and businesses all over the world. In bars, in restaurants, in stores, women are assaulted, abused, harassed and seen for just being sexual objects, there for a man’s desire instead of as whole human beings.”

Fonda, who sat down with Amanpour while promoting her Netflix movie Our Souls At Night, said she met Harvey Weinstein but “only…when I was old. And Harvey goes for young, because that’s more vulnerable, you know. But it’s very, very common. Bill Cosby, you know, another example of Hollywood.”
