One of the reasons Move America Forward for formed in 2004 was to defend our troops in Iraq who were being unmercifully criticized by anti-military activists like Jane Fonda and Cindy Sheehan and left-wing politicians like Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, who compared American soldiers to Soviet gulag and Nazi concentration camp guards.
The controversial Fonda is back in the news today because the QVC Shopping Network cancelled her appearance because of complaints from Americans loyal to our military.  We need to step now up as the liberals and leftists howl like stuck pigs.  We have to let QVC know that Americans are behind them.  Please sign this petition to QVC now so they will hold to their decision and not bow to the anti-military Hollywood crowd.

We are determined that American troops in the Middle East will always be seen as heroes and make sure they are never treated like our military heroes from the war in Vietnam.  Actress Jane Fonda was one of the worst offenders, and she continues to leave a bitter taste in most military mouths because of her reprehensible conduct and trip to North Vietnam.
To help her Hollywood career along, Fonda has consistently been deceptive in recalling those events during the Vietnam War.  She attacks her critics as if they did something wrong, instead of realizing that her loathing for America seeps from her every pore.

So here are the real facts behind the Fonda trip to Vietnam.

Fonda claims on her web site that she is being unfairly maligned:
“Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us. I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths.”
But Fonda is just flat out lying.  In a 1970 address at Michigan State University Fonda gave a speech saying; "I would think that if you understood what Communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees, that we would someday become communists.”
When cases of torture began to emerge among POWs returning to the United States, Fonda called the returning POWs "hypocrites and liars". She added, "These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed."
Fonda further stated that the POWs were "military careerists and professional killers" who are "trying to make themselves look self-righteous, but they are war criminals according to the law".
While Fonda claims all of these attacks against her are false, the truth is that only one part of the story is untrue.  A story went around that she was handed notes from POW’s, but that Fonda promptly turned them over to the Communist guards who beat the prisoners.  That didn’t happen.  But the rest of the story is all totally true, yet Fonda likes to find one incorrect fact and make it sound like the whole story is wrong.
Fonda also claims that she has apologized for anything she has done, but in reality she has only apologized for sitting on an anti-aircraft gun and pretending to shoot down American pilots.  She repeated in a 60 Minutes interview on March 31, 2005, that she had no regrets about her trip to North Vietnam in 1972, with the exception of the anti-aircraft gun photo.
During her trip, Fonda also made ten radio broadcasts in which she denounced American military leaders as "war criminals".  Fonda said she had no regrets about the broadcasts she made on Radio Hanoi, something she asked the North Vietnamese to do: "Our government was lying to us and men were dying because of it, and I felt I had to do anything that I could to expose the lies ….”
The battle to keep up support for our troops can never waiver, and we are committed at Move America Forward to defend them against all comers.  Please help us stick up for our troops with your contribution today.

Please help us so we can continue our mission to support our troops!
