From Jeremy Richey
Jane Fonda at her highest peak as an anti-war New-Left political activist, calling members of the American military criminals, murderers, including the President of the United States Richard Nixon and perhaps President Nixon’s predecessor Lyndon Johnson as well.
The wing of the American Left, the New Left people who are called McGovernites for their support of U.S. Senator George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign took over the Democratic Party in the late 1960s and early 1970s. And gave the Democratic Party a real bad name for over twenty-years.
We’re talking about people who simply don’t live on Planet Earth or at least in America (politically, at least) who believe that everything that America is supposed to stand for is somehow either imperialistic, materialistic, immoral, racist, bigoted, etc. Even though a lot of members of this political faction are urban, yuppies and some of the most successful and well-known, as well as talented and wealthy people in the world, such as Jane Fonda who is literally one of the best actresses of her generation, if not ever.
And yet the New-Left in America (Socialists and Communists) they constantly bash American capitalism and power, even though they’ve done so well with it. Even where designer material fatigues (that we’re probably made oversees) at their rallies.
