PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS:
She supported Huey Newton and the Black Panthers in the early 1970s, stating “Revolution is an act of love; we are the children of revolution, born to be rebels. It runs in our blood.” She called the Black Panthers “our revolutionary vanguard … we must support them with love, money, propaganda and risk.” She has been involved in the feminist movement since the 1970s, which dovetails with her activism in support of civil rights.
Fonda’s affinity for communism served as a backdrop for her intense anti-Vietnam War activities. By 1970 she was telling American college students: “If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist. . . . I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.” The dual villains of Southeast Asian conflicts were, in her view, “U.S. imperialism” and “a white man’s racist aggression.”

However, Fonda also predicted violence if Clinton secures the Democratic nomination and goes on to beat the Republican presidential nominee in the general election. The main reason for that vehemence, the actress says, will be the fact that she is a woman.
“Every time women move forward, there is going to be problems,” Fonda insisted. “So one of the things we have to do is help men understand why they are so threatened, and change the way we view masculinity. We have a toxic masculinity and that’s what needs to be addressed.”

Funny, I’m old enough to remember when the “toxic masculinity” trope was leveled by Hollywood dowagers against Hillary’s supporters, not Bernie Sander’s. (Given that the vast majority of political violence emanates from the left, as Fonda well knows and once encouraged, that’s the group that she’s smearing, no?) Speaking of which, why would the poster child for radical chic suddenly start denouncing violence?
