Hollywood actress and climate-change crusader Jane Fonda was arrested outside the US Capitol Friday while protesting global warming; with online footage showing the activist taken away in hand-restraints.
“The arrest comes after Fonda, a liberal Hollywood celebrity long known for activism and outspokenness, said she soon planned to leave Tinseltown and relocate to the nation’s capital, at least temporarily, inspired by young climate change activists,” reports Fox News.
“So, I moved here to do an action every Friday called ‘Fire Drill Friday’ because Greta Thunberg says ‘our house is on fire we have to behave appropriately,’” Fonda told reporters last week. “So, we have a fire drill every Friday and every Friday at 11:00 we will have a different focus on climate.”

“There’s a lot going on in the world, as you very well know, and we want to break through and make sure that climate and the catastrophe that’s looming remains as much front and center as we can make it and there’s gonna be more and more and more of these direct actions and civil disobedience, non-violent disobedience. If necessary, we’re gonna have to be able to bring things to a halt,” she added.

FINAL PUSH: Jane Fonda, Amy Schumer to Hold Anti-Trump ‘TELETHON’ Night Before Midterms
Hollywood celebrities -including Amy Schumer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Jane Fonda- plan to hold a last-minute telethon Monday evening to motivate young Americans to get out and elect Democrats during next week’s pivotal midterm election.
According to Reuters, the two-hour long ‘Telethon for America’ will begin at 9pm on Youtube, Comedy Central, and Facebook Live and feature over 50 comedians and Hollywood actors.
“This telethon, unlike traditional ones, will not ask for money. Instead, viewers will be urged to call in to a celebrity phone bank and pledge to vote in the next day’s election,” adds Reuters.
“Many Hollywood celebrities have urged their fans to support Democrats in federal and state races to fight President Donald Trump’s agenda and increase oversight of his administration,” adds the website.

ENOUGH: Border Patrol Council Designates Peter Fonda a ‘DOMESTIC TERRORIST’
The National Border Patrol Council officially labeled Hollywood liberal Peter Fonda a “domestic terrorist” this week, slamming the left-wing activist after he urged people to release personal information about ICE agents and reveal “where their children go to school.”
Fonda initially sent out his vicious post earlier this week, saying “WE SHOULD HACK THIS SYSTEM, GET THE ADDRESSES OF THE ICE AGENTS CBP AGENTS AND SURROUND THEIR HOMES IN PROTEST. WE SHOULD FIND OUT WHAT SCHOOLS THEIR CHILDREN GO TO AND SURROUND THE SCHOOLS IN PROTEST. THESE AGENTS ARE DOING THIS CUZ THEY WANT TO DO IT. THEY LIKE DOING THIS. F***.”
“Peter, you are a despicable, hateful, spoiled, and entitled punk. Your life of privilege since birth is not what most of us deal with. We have to work hard every day to make a living for our families. Some of us do dangerous jobs that most Americans wouldn’t touch,” writes the NBPC.
“Our children have to put up with enough as it is. Demonizing us is low. But encouraging domestic terrorism against our children is unforgivable. Encouraging violence against the President’s son is unforgivable. Asking people to kidnap the DHS secretary, strip her naked, put her in a cage and letting people poke her with sticks demonstrates just how unhinged you really are,” the council added.
