Actress Jane Fonda joined “The View” Friday and when the conversation turned to how pro-abortion activists can fight pro-life Republicans, the 85-year-old suggested murder as an option.

Fonda was visiting the show to promote her latest film, “80 For Brady.” She was joined by co-star and longtime friend Lily Tomlin. When the panel topic turned to recent abortion battles in red states Tomlin expressed dismay at new Republican laws to protect the unborn, saying the country is “backsliding” and it’s “pretty awful”

Fonda followed up with her own comments.

We have experienced many decades now of having agency over our body, of being able to determine when and how many children to have. We know what that feels like, we know what that’s done for our lives. We’re not going back, I don’t care what the laws are. We’re not going back.

Host Sonny Hostin laughed, saying that was “the activist” in Fonda coming out. Veteran host Joy Behar agreed, and then asked the “Grace and Frankie” star what could be done about it besides marching and protesting.

“Well, I’ve thought of murder,” Fonda replied through animated cross-talk between the women on the panel. When Tomlin asked her to repeat her statement, Fonda confirmed.

“Murder.”

While the panel of “The View” laughed, Behar stepped in to reassure the audience Fonda was just kidding, suggesting that right-wing watchdogs might pick up the comment and “run away with it.”

“She’s just kidding. Wait a second… They’ll pick up on that and just run with it. She’s just kidding.”

Fonda followed up with a long stare, eliciting a laugh from the audience, at which point Hostin changed course and asked Fonda about her infamous activism over the years.

Behar was right about one thing – conservative media has of course picked up the comment and run with it. Why wouldn’t we? The thing Behar was wrong about was that Fonda was kidding. Sure, she may have been half-joking, in the respect that she wasn’t prepared to go out with a gun that very moment and find a Republican to shoot; but underneath that glib comment is a wish. The award-winning actress is just another member of the Cult of Progressivism, a cult that demands its followers view everyone outside the cult as not just wrong, but evil. Her religion demands that evil be eradicated.

Abortion is one of the sacred tenants of the Progressive church, and those who oppose it are evil, thus, those who oppose it should be eradicated. Fonda might not be leading a murder squad any time soon, but would she be broken up if people started murdering pro-life politicians and voters by the droves? Of course not. After all, it would be for the pursuit of righteousness.

Behar knew we on the right would be fired up by such a comment, but one look at Fonda’s face when she made the comment exposes why. It upsets us because we know – and she knows – she means it. Others like her mean it. They want to censor and strip away human rights because they don’t see the other side as opposition, they see the other side as irredeemable and the only thing standing in the way of utopia.

And that scares us. We will roll our eyes at the likes of Jane Fonda when they reveal what’s lingering in their souls, but we also understand her brand of terrifying, elitist, self-righteous bias and we know the truth, a truth I doubt even Fonda herself would deny if pressed. She can’t kill every pro-life legislator in America…but if she could, and get away with it, she would.

At 85, Fonda doesn’t seem like she cares too much whether or not anyone is offended by such a thought. She believes she is right to think it, she is good to think it, and it is what every other good person thinks, too.
