Jane Fonda tries to hold online climate change protest during coronavirus: It immediately backfires when live-stream crashes

Fonda has shown for years that she is nothing more than a radically liberal Hollywood hack who really has no clue what she's talking about.

Hollywood star Jane Fonda has been arrested four times over the past few months for her Fire Drill Friday protests, which are climate change protests that have been attended by other members of the radically Left elite like Sally Field and Joaquin Phoenix. Since the coronavirus pandemic has forced people to stay inside, Fonda decided to move her weekly protest online yesterday, but it didn’t end well for her and her fellow left-wing activists.

Fonda’s plans to hold her virtual protest via Zoom blew up in her face when the live-stream crashed, stopping many people from even registering for the event, according to Breitbart News.

“Earlier during the launch of our first virtual Fire Drill Friday we experienced some technical difficulties,” Fonda’s activist group tweeted. “We are very sorry and are grateful to the thousands of people who joined us. We will be posting the full rally later today.”

Fonda had been promoting the event all week, posting an exercise video on TikTok in which she called on people to “work out with me for the planet.”

“There’s a climate crisis that’s a real emergency,” she said. “The future needs you. I need you.”

Fonda’s last climate protest had taken place in the Los Angeles area last month, when she protested against oil and gas companies while blaming “a small bunch of white men getting really rich” for causing pollution. “There’s a small bunch of white men getting really rich while they’re destroying the health of the people like the people you heard from. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. And guess what: it’s happening all across the country and all across the world,” Fonda said at her rally. “We have to say no more fossil fuels. Windmills are great, and solar panels are great, and Priuses are great. And we have to do all of that. But it’s not going to matter if we don’t stop the drilling and the fracking and the exporting and the refining of fossil fuels.”

Back in November, President Donald Trump let loose on Fonda, blasting her for the protests that have resulted in her being arrested multiple times. “They arrested Jane Fonda, nothing changes. I remember 30, 40 years ago they arrested her,” Trump said, according to Fox News. “She’s always got the handcuffs on, oh man. She’s waving to everybody with the handcuffs. I can’t believe it.”

He went on to bring up her infamous trip to North Vietnam during the Vietnam War, when she was nicknamed “Hanoi Jane” after being photographed sitting on an enemy weapon that was used to kill American soldiers. “Remember that? She went to Vietnam to find out how nice they were. They weren’t too nice to her, by the way,” Trump said. “No, they arrested her today. Jane Fonda, nothing changes. They arrest…every 25 years they arrest her.”

Fonda has shown for years that she is nothing more than a radically liberal Hollywood hack who really has no clue what she’s talking about. We’re glad to see that her pathetic live-stream crashed, as she does not deserve to have a platform to spew her radical left-wing propaganda.
