The $2,400 in damage inflicted on April 27 resulted in “Little Dancer” being temporarily removed from display while repairs were made.
On Friday, Hollywood actress Jane Fonda made the ludicrous argument that men—specifically white men—are solely responsible for climate change and that “those men” must be arrested and punished.
“Patriarchy” and “racism” were also on her list of reasons for the deterioration of the environment, she said.
While promoting her radical climate activism at a career retrospective at the Cannes Film Festival in France, Jane Fonda said that the world has “about seven, eight years” to halve its consumption of fossil fuels.
She also warned that the southern hemisphere and “poor people of color” would be the hardest hit by climate change.
It’s a tragedy that we must put an end to immediately. She reportedly said, “We have to arrest and jail those men —they’re all men,” as reported by Deadline.
Fonda continued her rant against men in the climate change movement afterwards.
It’s important for everyone to understand that there couldn’t be a climate problem if racism didn’t exist. “If there was no patriarchy, there would be no climate crisis,” she was quoted as saying. A mode of thinking that places things in a strict hierarchy. The things that matter are white guys, and everything else is irrelevant.
The top polluter in the world is China, which does not have a white male leader and produces more greenhouse emissions than all of the Western nations combined. Fonda failed to mention this.
Furthermore, she said
In this way, I don’t just feel like I’m battling the ecological catastrophe but also patriarchy and racism. We need to stop thinking in compartments, with feminists in one corner and environmentalists in another. When I became an activist during the Vietnam War, I realized this. The deeper you delve into any problem of any kind, the more interconnected the pieces become. We’re in deep water if we manage to fix the climate disaster but not the other issues.
Breitbart News reported in January that during an interview on NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, Jane Fonda discussed her views on climate change.
“Well, you know, you can take everything, from sexism to racism to misogyny to homophobia to the war, and if you really get into it, research it, learn the history of it— everything’s connected. If racism didn’t exist, she continued, “we wouldn’t have a climate crisis.”
In 2019, Fonda organized a series of rallies in Washington, D.C., where she was eventually detained on Capitol Hill for her efforts to combat climate change. Since then, she’s been planning “Firedrill Fridays,” where A-list actors and actresses rally against climate change in person and online.
