Every time a Right winger does not like something a Leftie does or says and the “T” word is trotted out……Traitor!
WE all probably have our list of traitors….of course the first prick to come to mind is Benedict Arnold…..but can you name any others?
Black’s Law Dictionary defines “treason” as” attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which one owes allegiance, either by making war against the state or by materially supporting its enemies.” Submitted here are ten people who did their level best to see that America couldn’t celebrate her official birthday. And yes, this list is “too American.”
Number 10 on this list….Jane Fonda……
During the height of the Vietnam war in 1972, film starlet Jane Fonda visited North Vietnam and shilled for the North Vietnamese government, screeching that American prisoners of war (POWs) were being treated humanely. She then went on to condemn all US soldiers as “war criminals”. On hearing that many POWs claimed to have been tortured, Fonda denounced them as “liars”. She encountered no legal or professional repercussions upon her return to the US, but claims to deeply regret her actions today. How nice for her.
An interesting list….but to me not accurate.
For instance Aaron Burr was charged with treason but never convicted….legally he is not a traitor.
To me before one can be labeled a traitor one must be convicted of the crime.
If not then it is so much talk.
Anyone you want to add to the list?
