the soldiers tried to explain to Fonda that they were in fact being ill-treated and sometimes tortured but she didn't believe it some soldiers claimed they withstood more torture and suffering because

  1. Why didn’t you mention Julian Assange one mans traitor is another name mans hero as far as I can see it Hannoy Jane you made a Big Mistake Butt l forgive you

  2. 🇨🇿 Czech people will hate me for saying this, but singer Karel Gott (“The Czech Sinatra”’) was a HUGE traitor to the resistance movement headed by Vaclav Havel. Gott collaborated closely with the Soviet/communist regime that was responsible for the persecution and death of thousands of Czechs and Slovaks, but he pretended to care for his country. He refused to sign Vaclav Havel’s Charta 77 resistance movement and instead became the face of the communist regime’s counter-resistance movement. Can someone from Czech or Slovakia please explain to me why Gott is still so popular?

  3. Robert McNamera sent over 300,000 low IQ men into battle in Vietnam knowing they probably would be cannon fodder. Google McNamera's Morons. And President Trump is a traitor as he profits from destroying America.

  4. 🤔Uhhh why wasn't Trump on this list? He deserves to be on this list because…
    1. He enjoys being Putin's bottom b*tch.
    2. He admires Kim Jong Un and other muderous dictators such as Putin and the Saudis.
    3. He humiliates our country on a daily basis with his ignorance, lack of knowledge and class.
    4. He believed our enemies (Putin and the Saudis) over our own intelligence agencies and told the world so.
    5. He and his crooked family accepted "help" from the Russians to get elected.
    6. He admits he'd betray our country again in the next election if it would help him to win.
    7. He has alienated our allies and put our country at risk. The dictators (Putin) he admires so view him as a fool!
    8. He lied about President Obama not being an US citizen with his birther bull sh*t.
    9. He denigrated a war hero, John McCain about being captured and tortured while his lying, traitorous *ss got out of serving our country by lying about having damn bone spurs.

    Add to all of this the fact that he is a patholigical liar, rapist and pedophile and adulterer who has admitted to assaulting women. His wife (Melania) is an ex Euro porn skank escort, who sold herself to men until she snagged Trump's old *ss and spawned anchor baby Baron! She came to the US and stayed in the US illegally as well as the fact that she helped her father to chain migrate to our country even though he's a convicted felon (you know, like the felons Trump always lies and demonizies brown folk for) and has done nothing for our country except pitch her asinine "Be Best" program aimed toward bullying but doesn't address the fact her mentally unstable, ignorant and racist hubby is a damn bully! The woman can barely speak english yet she lies about speaking 8 other languages, lies about having a college degree and steals Michelle Obama's speech because she's too dumb to draft her own!
    Trump is destroying our country and the meth smoking, kin boinking, low IQ folk who put him in office with the help of Russia are to blame!
    TRUMP IS A JOKE THAT IS NO LONGER FUNNY! Seriously, history will not be kind to this bigoted, pathological liar and charlatan as well as those who enabled this fool to become President! He definately needs to be on this list!

  5. I heard Jane Fonda being fondly interviewed by NPR and she definitely wasn't regretful. But it probably helped her confidence that her interviewer was holding her on a pedestal. That's NPR for you

  6. Jane Fonda was not a traitor. She turned out to be right. The Vietnam War was immoral and 40,000 US servicemembers died for nothing. Fonda did apologize. She did not hand over American POWs notes to North Vietnam

  7. Colonists: We just want to talk
    fast forward to the destruction of hundreads of indigenas plus the most important nations being rich and able to be so important given they stole all the gold…
    Yeah just talk.

  8. I think we can disagree without hating and name-calling. And of course you are always free to take your toys and go home

  9. Besides the fact that most of the Gospels is fiction, the whole Christian thing doesn't really work without Judas. In some kind of cosmic way, he was just doing his job. If he actually existed, that is; and if he actually did the deed.

    (p.s. Marshall Badoglio deserves a place in this list)

  10. Jane was not a traitor. America had no reason to be in that illegal “war”.
    Now, she may have been too passionate about the despicable acts of America, but there is a specific definition of traitor and that doesn’t describe Jane’s actions.

  11. Simon…you are acting on the Bernaysian propaganda from the left.

    The Nazis and Fascism are both LIBERAL/SOCIALIST Ideologies. The National Socialist German Workers Party is not a Right Wing organization. Hitler himself swore he was a Capitalist. They are associated..by the left…as right wing because they opposd Stalinist Russia. However..National Socialism and Marxist Socialism are two sides of the same coin.

    Fascism is an ideology envisioned by Socialist Scholar Giovanni Gentile. It was to be a more strict Socialist mindset.

    Vidkun Quisling was a traitor…but not because he waz a right winger…because he was a ready made collabourator…thus the name "Quisling" being used to label a person willing to join forces with a potential invader.

    Your stuff is amazing…but please try to get the correct history on the subject. And stay away from Wikipedia as it is horribky biased.

  12. Guy Fawkes was not the leader of the Gunpowder Plot, although he's the most famous of the plotters. Also, the plot was to replace the king with his daughter. They weren't working on behalf of a foreign power so while the plot was undoubtedly treason legally, it was what nowadays we would consider a failed coup d'etat. Kim Philby was much more of a traitor.

  13. This won't be a popular viewpoint to my fellow US citizens of a.certain age, but Jane Fonda isn't a traitor. She wasn't alone in advocating against the Vietnam War or going to then North Vietnam.
    She doesn't get a free pass from me on her idiotic & harmful public behavior, though. Naive as she may have been & shallow as she might've been, she allowed herself to be used by the North Vietnamese government & the NVA. She must've been aware on some level the US POW's were being less than candid on pain of additional punishment by their captors. She was manipulated into really bad photo-ops she should've understood were bad. Civilian though she was, for example, she should've damned well knew what an artillery piece or flak gun looked like. She certainly knew enough to look through its aiming arpeture. (sp?). And, yeah, she should've at least faced trial, though my non-lawyer mind still thinks there was no hard proof of intent or direct harm to the US as a country or government.
    Maybe I'M the one who's naive here, but her behavior, repugnant, idiotic & detrimental to the condition of POW's, not to mention looking like an idiot in the grand tradition of Axis Sally, Tokyo Rose, Seoul City Sue, & Radio Hanoi's regular English broadcaster (I forget HER nickname
    ..🤔), they were, there was no purposefully harmful intent. Jane Fonda SHOULD'VE faced a US court. I truly believe that. And she needs to be called out for the pain, suffering & injury she caused every American POW, directly or not, indirectly or otherwise, until she has made a full, detailed acknowledgement of her activities in Hanoi, a full public acceptance of the harm she caused, & complete, unconditional apology to those POW's she assisted in injuring, exploiting, & extending their undeserved treatment they unjustly endured. As well as to the American people for providing cover for a brutal regime that treated their own people, as well as US soldiers, w/ruthless, savage abuse. Then, maybe, Jane Fonda would be fully atoned for her idiocy.

  14. I served during Vietnam War and it became clear that it was a money maker for the rich. She was no Traitor.

  15. The video is very inconsistent, it makes sense for some people to be here and the others just sounds like hearsay and bias

  16. Is it actually confirmed the Rosenbergs were actually communist spies or this was just the narrative promoted by mainstream media at the time and now accepted as fact? As far as i was taught, they were alleged.

  17. Son of Christ?
    Come on Simon this is not like you
    Unless there are 10 Conspiracies in the Catholic Church coming up.
    Guy Fawkes was an ‘also ran’ in the group. Robert Catesby lead the plot.
    A bit like Ronnie Biggs was an add on the The Train Robbery Gang.
    On that I’ll leave you with Judas’s carrot!!
