It is an act of patriotism not to watch some movies — and a bigger act not to show them:
A Korean War veteran who has owned a movie theater in central Kentucky for more than three decades is refusing to run “The Butler” due to the anti-Vietnam War stance of one of its lead actresses.
Ike Boutwell, who opened MoviePalace and Showtime Cinemas in Elizabethtown in the 1980s, told the News-Enterprise that in all these years he has not, to his knowledge, let one movie with Jane Fonda play in his theater.
The actress, who was an outspoken opponent of the conflict, stars in ”Lee Daniels’ the Butler” as Nancy Reagan. The film, which opened with more than $24.6 million in its first week, is a biopic of a White House butler who served eight presidents.
A more obvious poke in the eye to patriotic Americans than casting Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan would be hard to imagine, even from Hollywood. In reasonable times, Fonda would have faced a firing squad for her treasonous activities during the Vietnam War, which even included traveling to North Vietnam to propagandize on behalf of the enemy. She was photographed laughingly posing with anti-aircraft guns used to shoot down American pilots.
“I trained hundreds of pilots to fly, many of whom Ms. Fonda clapped and cheered as they were shot down,” the former Marine said of the pilots he trained to fly in Vietnam because he was considered too old at that point to serve himself, the News-Enterprise reported. …
“In life, you’ve got to stand for something, and that’s where I stand,” Boutwell told the newspaper. “It makes me feel that I’m honoring those who died for this country.”
Jane Fonda is hardly the only moonbat to appear in this inflammatory piece of left-wing propaganda, which is evidently intended to enforce the Cultural Marxist notion that America is a wretched place for being racist against blacks, nor is her insulting presence the only reason to steer well clear of it. Here’s the trailer:
