Kent State to Pay Hanoi Jane $83k for May 4 Commemoration Speech


It’s hard to believe, but May 4, 2020, is the 50th anniversary of the tragic shooting at Kent State University, where Ohio National Guard troops fired on a crowd of students during a massive anti-Vietnam War protest, killing four students and injuring nine.

Witnesses, military and law-enforcement experts, historians, and activists are divided on whether the shooting was justified (that’s a discussion for another day), but it appears that Kent State is going all-in on pouring salt in the wounds of America’s Vietnam veterans.

In a move that surprised many in the Northeast Ohio area and beyond, Kent State President Todd Diacon announced that actress, activist, and (former?) communist sympathizer Jane Fonda will be one of the speakers at an anniversary commemoration of the shooting on May 3—and she’ll be paid a whopping $83,000 to ostensibly reminisce about her anti-war activism.

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, a Republican and veteran, is not having it. read more

12 Comments on Kent State to Pay Hanoi Jane $83k for May 4 Commemoration Speech

  1. I live pretty close to the KSU campus. I was going to drive to Kent on May 4 and just see what’s happening for the 50th anniversary of the shooting. The presence of Hanoi Bitch may keep me from going.
    I remember where I was when I heard about the shooting. I was 12 years old.

  2. She’ll work for $83k? Bullshit. She’s the ultimate capitalist who can negotiate for better pay.

    I used to drive around the Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Brentwood, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood in my 1986 CJ7 with a large sign on the back that read “BOYCOTT JANE FONDA, AMERICAN TRAITOR BITCH”.

  3. I went to church with one of the kids who was killed— Bill Schroeder. He wasn’t even participating in the protests, just walking between classes. Wonder what he’d think of this? Wonderful family, and his parents never recovered from this. In another sad story, his younger brother committed suicide at age 49 when he was laid off at the steel mill.

  4. How silly. None of these 2020 Kent State grads know anything of the 60’s. Some throwback in the Deans board of weenies must be an old hippie.

  5. Where did the time go, I was 17 and a Junior in HS when Kent State occurred. Now I’m almost 67 and the world has been turned upside down since then but Hanoi Jane is still a traitor. We got into a lot of trouble with the school administration for wearing black arm bands and hand printed T shirts that said They shoot students don’t they in protesting what happened at Kent State. I was 17 and naïve, what can I say. Kent State was just another nail in the coffin of the destruction caused by the left to destroy America. Hell, we all hated the Vietnam war back then and yet I joined the Navy two years later when they were about to draft me. As long as I don’t hear Ohio by CSN&Y again anytime soon I’ll be good.
