Robbie Picard: Jane Fonda is “a prop” who “knows nothing about the oil sands”

On last night's show, Robbie Picard of Oilsands Strong told me about his confrontation with actress and activist Jane Fonda, who flew in to Alberta to criticize the oil sands on behalf of Greenpeace.

I was stunned to hear that Jane Fonda is 78 years old! When I was a youngster I thought of her as so physically beautiful, and perhaps she still is. Certainly her name carries weight and she knows it.

Her wee tour of Fort MacMurray and Edmonton got the media attention it was supposed to. The Premier of Alberta objected most strongly to her visit, but so did local M.P.’s and First Nations leaders.

Her visit was quite insulting on so many levels, but especially that she tried to use indigenous leaders as a backdrop for her prepared speeches.

A chance for Albertans to reflect on what they themselves want. Thanks, but no thanks to Hollywood celebrities — that does not help.

Still, she could of done some of her old exercise routines using the oil sands as a backdrop.

These Hollywood smart asses never want to sit down with someone like Robert, because they would look like fools, which they are when it comes to something like the oil industry. They protest & criticize, yet they haven’t done any research on the subject & then think they can as they all do preach to the uninformed like themselves, who are the only ones buying their BS. Nothing wrong with growing older & Fonda looks great, but they are not in the spotlight as much & they have to find another way to get that back, much to their detriment because all it does is turn us off
& shun their movies, etc.

I wonder if Jane knows, that those of us who admired her Jane Fonda Workout Series, years ago, have destroyed all of our tapes and books, since she decided to take up activism again, against our country. She thinks the small people should bow down and do as she tells them to. One thing we, the public, still have, is the ability to withhold our money from these lunatics, with too much time on their hands, or who have become addicted to fame.

This stunt is so obviously disingenuous it probably will be a setback for anti-oilsands PR. I mean why Fonda, was Castro unavailable? I can’t think of a more loathed celebrity.

I wonder if she thinks we need colder winters?

Why is Alberta’s premier Rachel Notley silent in the face of this incursion into Alverta’s affairs by a privileged Hollywood elite who knows nothing. As Jason Kenney tweeted didn’t ‘Hanoi Jane’ get the memo that Trudeau approved the pipelines because of the ‘social license’ gained by Notley bringing in the carbon tax?

“The prop” – that is exactly what Fonda is to the environmental terrorists.

There’s a reason they’re called ACTORS.

No, I’m sorry. I did not mean to insult the hammers in my last comment. At least hammers provide a useful function. What useful function does a celebrity provide?

None of these celebrities know anything about the oilsands … or much else for that matter.

Jane Fonda said looking at the oilsands from above made her feel like she had a large patch of skin ripped off her body as if she was “mother earth”!

What an utter load of BS. But what else could we expect from a celebrity. After all, chinooks are obviously proof of global warming! Right, Leonardo DiCaprio?

Ft. McMurray looks like Hiroshima. Right, Neil Young?

*Why do people listen to these celebrity idiots?

Either they are as stupid as a sack of hammers, or they are brazen bold faced liars.*
