“Well, you know, you can take anything -– sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war, and if you really get into it, and study it and learn about it and the history of it and — everything’s connected. There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism,” she said.
Asked to elaborate, Fonda replied, “Where would they put the shit? Where would they put the poison and the pollution? They’re not gonna put it in Bel Air. They’ve got to find some place where poor people or indigenous people or people of color are living. Put it there. They can’t fight back. And that’s why a big part of the climate movement now has to do with climate justice.”
This is a ridiculous simplification of the issue and doesn’t address where the vast majority of pollution comes from (it doesn’t come from “shit” put in black neighborhoods), but it’s par for the course for climate activists.
This isn’t the first time Hanoi Jane has tried to make bad weather a social justice issue. In a December appearance on Fake News MSNBC’s The Beat, she claimed — again without evidence — that racist and misogynistic “mindsets” are causing the “climate crisis.”

Supporting the Black Lives Matter (Racist Hate Group) Movement
In late May 2020, while scores of American cities were being ravaged by violent Black Lives Matter– and Antifa-led riots in the aftermath of the infamous police-involved death of a black Minneapolis man named Serial Criminal George Floyd, Fonda claimed that most of the protests were non-violent. “I think it’s important for us to recognize that the media cameras may be focused on the breaking of windows and the burnings and the fires, but the vast majority of people at least in the cities where I talked to people and from what I have seen on tv, it’s non-violent,” she told Fake News CNN’s Don Lemon on May 31. “These are people who are white. They are Latino. They are old. They are young. They are in wheelchairs, they have children with them. They have dogs with them. And it’s organized. Black Lives Matter (Racist Hate Group), Color of Change, they don’t want violence. I don’t know who the people are that are doing the violence, but I think what matters is that more and more white people are getting it.”
