The world is still reeling from the mass shooting that took place at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Tennessee on Monday, resulting in three 9 year-old children and three adults losing their lives.
In the wake of this tragedy, recent comments that the Hollywood star and radically liberal activist Jane Fonda made about “murder” being used as a way to deal with pro-life people have come back to haunt her.
Fonda’s Abortion Comments Come Back To Haunt Her
While appearing on “The View” earlier this month, Fonda was asked how she’d suggest dealing with people who are against abortion.
“Well, I’ve thought of murder,” she replied.

When asked to repeat herself, Fonda doubled down by once again saying, “murder.”
Sportskeeda reported that after a transgender gunman opened fire at the Christian Covenant School in Nashville on Monday, social media users called out Fonda for “inciting” violence with her previous comments.
“Jane Fonda and The View supported the idea of murdering Christian Pro-Lifers this month,” one social media user wrote. “They giggled like the wretched hyenas they are. Now that they have blood on their hands, do you think we will hear apologies?”
“This won’t age well. 6 people killed today at a pro-life Christian School,” a second user added, with a third writing, “Is the FBI going to investigate the view for inciting mass murder of school children?”
It should be noted that Fonda’s comments fit with the official definition of terrorism: “The unlawful use of violence or threats to intimidate or coerce a civilian population or government, with the goal of furthering political, social, or ideological objectives.”
Hours after her infamous appearance on “The View,” Fonda attempted to backtrack by saying that she was only joking.
“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,” Fonda, 85, told Newsweek. “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.”
Fonda went on to say that women are “‘not going back” to losing control of their bodies, even after Roe v. Wade was overturned.
“Women across the country are facing real threats when it comes to our bodies, 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,” she continued.
Many would argue that this was not enough, however. While it is unknown if the gunman in Nashville was aware of Fonda’s comments, it can’t be denied that the woman who was nicknamed Hanoi Jane during the Vietnam War was indeed inciting violence with them.
The shooter has been identified as Audrey Hale, a 28 year-old transgender woman who previously attended the Covenant School as a child. The child victims have been identified as Hallie Scruggs, William Kenney, and Evelyn Dieckhaus, all nine, while the adult victims were head of school Dr. Katherine Koonce, 60, substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, 61, and school custodian Mike Hill, 61.
Throughout her decades in Hollywood, Fonda has shown that she really does have no shame, and that nothing is too radically liberal a stance for her to take. She should be ashamed of herself for her abortion comments, and we will continue to pray for all those impacted by the tragic shooting in Nashville.
