It doesn’t matter how radical Jane Fonda is, what liberal causes she embraces, the fact that in the 1970s she sat on a North Vietnam antiaircraft gun. Journalists at Good Morning AmericaNo ideological labels are required. Fonda appeared on Tuesday’s show and was hailed as a “legend” and “Hollywood royalty.”
Co-host George Stephanopoulos only described her as a “lifelong activist.” He then pushed Fonda to lobby for expensive climate policies: “Of course, you know, you are also an activist and started a new climate political action.”
Stephanopoulos gave the actress a platform to push her radical Fire Drill Fridays website, a page in which even liberal California Governor Gavin Newsom isn’t extreme enough. Fonda lobbied:
Well, I got started inspired by Greta Thunberg and the young student activists who really changed the world and people’s attitudes about the climate in 20 — in spring of 2019 and they were saying, where are the old folks? After that, I was able to go to Washington every Friday for rallies. Then I engaged in civil disobedience.
She then cheered far-left “climate champion” Democrats.
JANE FONDA : We need to get rid people who are dependent on fossil fuel. And we must elect climate advocates. Neck week, Andy Levin is my mission in Michigan. I’m supporting Donna Edwards. I support people who are brave, who work for the people and not big businesses.
GEORGE SEPHANOPOULOS: The consequences are now irreversible. All over the world, 100 degrees.
There were no difficult questions for this extreme actress. This is quite the contrast to when ABC journalist David Wright interviewed Dolly Parton in 2018 and repeatedly pushed her to call Donald Trump a sexist.
The “activist” propaganda on ABC was sponsored by Chevrolet. You can click the link and let them know how you feel.

Good Morning America
AMY ROBACH – Jane Fonda, a Hollywood icon is coming to Times Square.
GEORGE SEPHANOPOULOS: Reunited with Hollywood royalty. She’s an Academy Award-winner. A lifelong activist. Jane Fonda is now the star of a new animated movie called Luck. GMA is pleased to welcome you back. It’s good to see you.
JANE FONDA : I am very grateful. George, It was a pleasure seeing you.
8.50 am ET
STEPHANOPOULOS : You are an activist who started a new climate of political action.
FONDA: Jane Fonda Climate.
STEPHANOPOULOS – Why do you want to do this?
FONDA – I do still fire drill Fridays, and we’ll continue to —
FONDA: Well, I got started inspired by Greta Thunberg and the young student activists who really changed the world and people’s attitudes about the climate in 20 — in spring of 2019 and they were saying, where are the old folks? Then I traveled to Washington, held rallies on Fridays and participated in civil disobedience. It brought together people from across the country that were not activists. They cared about the climate but had never put their lives on the line. We then continued online with COVID. Our 2020 audience was nine million. That was quite impressive and moved viewers from being concerned to actually taking action. We’ll be resuming in-person actions in August. Firedrillfriday.com can be accessed to learn more. Even with all the action taken by people, good legislation can’t be passed due to the dominance of the fossil fuel industries over the government.
STEPHANOPOULOS : That’s political action.
FONDA – That is the purpose of the political action commission. We need to get rid people who are dependent on fossil fuel and to elect climate advocates. You know what? Neck week is Andy Levin’s trip to Michigan. I’m supporting Donna Edwards. I support people who are brave, who work for the people and not big companies.
STEPHANOPOULOS – There is no escape from the current consequences. It’s 100° all around the globe.
FONDA – Oh my God, it was three months. It was 104 degrees. It’s difficult to survive. It’s hard to work in that kind of a thing and, you know, your weather report was talking about the fires in Iowa and it’s — it’s getting worse and worse and it’s going to continue to get worse. There are eight years to follow the scientific advice.
STEPHANOPOULOS : However, these small actions can have a significant impact.
FONDA: We have to do actions.
