Trump aide Stephen Miller says Jane Fonda committed treason with her 1979 protests against Vietnam War that earned her ‘Hanoi Jane’ nickname

  • Jane Fonda flew to Hanoi in 1972 during the Vietnam War to protest against the American military’s presence there
  • She went on Vietnam public radio and told US pilots to stop bombing Vietnam
  • She also posed on a Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun which shot down US planes
  • She this week championed protests against the Keystone pipeline – which Biden has now blocked
  • Miller, appearing on Fox to talk about the pipeline, slammed the protesters for venerating Fonda as their leader
  • He said what she did in Vietnam was ‘treason by any definition’  

Former Trump aide Stephen Miller said on Wednesday that Jane Fonda committed treason by traveling to Vietnam in the 1970s to protest against the US government and the then ongoing war.  

Fonda, now 83, is a lifelong activist who most recently protested the Keystone pipeline that Joe Biden has now blocked by revoking the permit on it. 

In the 1972, she flew to Vietnam, spoke to their troops and appeared on Vietnamese radio to condemn America’s military. 

She even posed next to an anti-aircraft gun that was used to shoot down American planes.

Her extreme antics earned her the nickname ‘Hanoi Jane’ among US veterans and troops. 

Miller was on Fox News talking about Fonda’s recent calls to stop the plans for pipelines that Trump put in place.

He brought up her activism against the Vietnam War and it constituted treason.

‘What she did in the Vietnam War… people may have forgotten this. She volunteered herself as a tool of North Vietnamese Communist propaganda. She did North Vietnamese propaganda broadcasts on their radio station.

‘She sat on their anti-aircraft battery that’s used to shoot down American planes and American airmen. 

‘This is by any definition, and I am going to use the word, what she did is treason. And she was held up as a hero?’ 

Fonda flew to North Vietnam in 1972 as part of her protest against the Vietnam War. 

She went on local radio to condemn the American military effort, and she posed on a Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun which shot down American planes. 

She also put on one of the Vietnamese soldiers’ helmets.

Fonda was condemned at the time for making the trip to Hanoi, where she appeared on local radio to tell American pilots to stop bombing Vietnamese farming fields which she didn’t think were fair targets. 

She has since said she regrets the photograph, but not the activism against the war. 

Fonda has routinely protested against other political causes she disagrees with. 

She recently condemned Joe Biden for not doing more to stop pipelines in areas she thinks they shouldn’t be in. 

One of them is Keystone, which Biden blocked this week by revoking the permit on it.
