If you welcome one of America’s most reviled anti-American activists onto one of the most divisive, low-IQ shows on television, odds are really good something stunningly stupid will be said.
And if one of the most vocal champions of the conservative “America First” movement happens to be watching, odds are even better the stunningly stupid statement won’t slip by unnoticed.
So, when “Hanoi Jane” Fonda went on ABC’s “The View” and seemed to suggest that, in light of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion activists should put down their protest placards and just start murdering pro-life politicians, it really wasn’t surprising that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) had some thoughts on the matter.
Fonda and comedian Lily Tomlin joined the ladies of “The View” on Friday to push their new movie, “Moving On,” and the conversation naturally turned to liberal politics, replete with virtuous outrage.
“We’re not going back,” Fonda declared, referring to the Supreme Court’s recognition of the Constitutional right granted to the states to regulate abortion. “I don’t care what the laws are. We’re not going back.”
And, like barking seals, the audience burst into applause, because who cares about the law when you’re a liberal celebrity?
“Besides marching and protesting, what else would you suggest?” Joy Behar asked the 85-year-old act-ivist.
“Well, I thought of murder,” Fonda replied with a coquettish flair.
The response stopped Tomlin mid-sentence.
“What did you say?” she asked her co-star.
“Murder,” Fonda replied, as Behar scrambled to claim, “she’s kidding!”
Few on Twitter were laughing.
“This is criminal incitement of violence,” tweeted conservative “anti-woke” lawyer, Rogan O’Handley. “Can someone please tell the FBI she’s a soccer mom going to a school board meeting so they investigate?”

Rep. Greene wasted no time in addressing the threat.
“Unapologetic Pro-Life Politician here,” she began on Twitter.
“I routinely get death threats because of the nasty women on The View and the things they say about me,” she wrote. “But calling for us to be assassinated makes The View, the hosts, the producers, the network, the advertisers, and everyone involved responsible for death threats, attacks, and potential murders of Pro-Life politicians and activists.”
“I am reporting this,” Greene stated.
Then she took a more personal swing at the actress.
“By the way @Janefonda your eggs are dried up so you don’t have to worry about getting pregnant anytime soon,” she quipped, “so you can retire from demanding baby murder now.”

And the fiery lawmaker was just warming up.
Next, Greene threatened to kick the FBI where it hurts.
“The @FBI and @TheJusticeDept have targeted Pro-Life protestors for praying outside of abortion clinics. They better step up and hold @Janefonda and @TheView accountable for calling for the murder of Pro-Life Politicians like me,” she tweeted. “I will not be voting to fund the FBI and DOJ unless the two-tiered justice system is stopped.”

Finally, Greene took to her personal Twitter account.
“Jane Fonda (and many Democrats) want you and me ‘murdered’ for fighting to protect the most innocent in the womb,” she told her followers.
“Believe Democrats when they say the quiet part out loud,” she cautioned conservatives. “Sounds like they want us dead.”
Meanwhile, Fonda did her best to walk the shocking statement back, shrugging the entire incident off as a joke.
“While women’s reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comment on The View was obviously made in jest,” she told Fox News Digital in a statement. “My body language and tone made it clear to those in the room – and to anyone watching – that I was using hyperbole to make a point.”
“Women across the country are facing real threats when it comes to our bodies,” she added, “and people lose faith in our mission to protect women when others choose to focus on tangential issues and passing jokes instead of the actual problem at hand.”
But Greene wasn’t the only Congressional woman who wasn’t feeling “protected.”
“I have notifed Capitol Police of Jane Fonda’s call to murder pro-life politicians,” Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) tweeted. “I expect both @Janefonda and @TheView to issue public retractions for giving such repugnant behavior a platform.”
“Calling for the murder of a [sic] pro-life politicians is not only dangerous but it’s incredibly sick. This leads to targeting and can result in someone being seriously hurt,” she wrote in a statement. “The View should be ashamed that it condones violence, especially against female elected officials.”
