Hanoi Jane Fonda says she was only kidding when she told a national television audience that pro-life advocates should be murdered. Watch the video above.
“While women’s reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comment on ‘The View’ was obviously made in jest,” Fonda told Fox News in a statement. “My body language and tone made it clear to those in the room — and to anyone watching — that I was using hyperbole to make a point.
“Women across the country are facing real threats when it comes to our bodies, and people lose faith in our mission to protect women when others choose to focus on tangential issues and passing jokes instead of the actual problem at hand.”
Fonda delivered her threat during an interview on “The View.”
“We’re not going back,” Fonda saidm referring to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. “I don’t care what the laws are. We’re not going back.”
When pressed on how to change the ideology of the opponents, Fonda suggested “murder.”
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) warned Capitol Police about the potential call to violence against conservatives.
“I have notified Capitol Police of Jane Fonda’s call to murder pro-life politicians,” she wrote. “Calling for the murder of a pro-life politicians is not only dangerous, but it’s incredibly sick. This leads to targeting and can result in someone being seriously hurt.”
Imagine if Kari Lake or Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene had suggested on “The View” that pro-abortion people should be murdered. The FBI would’ve stormed the set and by lunchtime Greene and Lake would’ve been sharing a cell with the Q-Anon Shaman.
