Biden Surrogate Jane Fonda: ‘COVID is God’s Gift to the Left’
Far-left actress says Chinese virus has helped left's anti-Trump goals
Radical-left veteran actress Jane Fonda has declared in a new interview that she believes the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed over 216,000 Americans, "is God's gift to the left."
Fonda, a surrogate for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign, suggested the Chinese plague is helping the left achieve its anti-Trump goals in the run-up to the November election.
"I just think that COVID is God's gift to the Left," said Fonda, who is known for fraternizing with enemy soldiers during the Vietnam War.
"That's a terrible thing to say," she added.
"I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the band-aid off who [Trump] is and what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country."
She also argues that the coronavirus pandemic has helped create an "existential crossroads" for humanity to force discussions on issues such as climate change.
"What a great gift, what a tremendous opportunity, we are so lucky, we have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have," she added.
Fonda appeared alongside the Biden campaign and vice-presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) during a virtual event in September.
While promoting the event, Harris said that veterans "sacrifice so much for our nation and deserve our respect and gratitude, both while on active duty and after."
Fonda's remarks were first spotted by Meghan Portfolio on social media, who shared the video on Twitter on Wednesday.
Fonda famously posed with enemy troops for a photo on an antiaircraft gun in 1972.
The move earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane" from angered Vietnam veterans.
Meanwhile, the head of the Catholic Church has responded to the coronavirus pandemic by suggesting that the world shifts toward communist policies.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, in a new letter to Roman Catholic leaders, Pope Francis insisted that communism should be adopted on a global scale "for the good of all."
The pontiff is advocating for the redistribution of wealth and an end to the public's "natural right" to own private property.
Francis denounced trickle-down economics, private property, and demanded that the wealthy "administer [their wealth] for the good of all" to bring "greater justice and inclusiveness in the world."
The pope ironed out his demands in an 86-page papal encyclical — which is "the most authoritative form of papal writing," according to Reuters.
