Has this cunt ever apologized for what she did?


A Korean War veteran who has owned a movie theater in central Kentucky for more than three decades is refusing to run “The Butler” due to the anti-Vietnam War stance of one of its lead actresses.

Ike Boutwell, who opened MoviePalace and Showtime Cinemas in Elizabethtown in the 1980s, told the News-Enterprise that in all these years he has not, to his knowledge, let one movie with Jane Fonda play in his theater.


Boutwell, who owns MoviePalace, trained pilots for the Vietnam War, and said he considers Fonda a traitor for some of her demonstrations.

The actress, who was an outspoken opponent of the conflict, stars in ”Lee Daniels’ the Butler” as Nancy Reagan. The film, which opened with more than $24.6 million in its first week, is a biopic of a White House butler who served eight presidents.

Boutwell considers Fonda a traitor for her statements and demonstrations against the Vietnam War, leading him to ban films in which she appears from his theater.

“I trained hundreds of pilots to fly, many of whom Ms. Fonda clapped and cheered as they were shot down,” the former Marine said of the pilots he trained to fly in Vietnam because he was considered too old at that point to serve himself, the News-Enterprise reported.

Boutwell expressed his disagreement over Fonda’s casting as the former first lady as well.

“To add to this, I just really think it’s a slap in the face to have a person of treason portray a patriotic lady, Mrs. Reagan,” he said. “I just think that is throwing gas on the fire.”

Although Boutwell told the News-Enterprise he hasn’t received any complaints, the newspaper reported at least one customer who showed up at the theater without looking up movie times beforehand being surprised and thinking it a poor business decision that he wasn’t airing the flick.

“In life, you’ve got to stand for something, and that’s where I stand,” Boutwell told the newspaper. “It makes me feel that I’m honoring those who died for this country.”

Others have been supporting Boutwell’s decision on his movie theater’s Facebook page as well

Good thing that he isn't in New Mexico. As evidenced by the other thread.

I have actually been to this theatre. Lived in that area from 94-98. The Elizabethtown and Radcliff areas are huge military towns. Good community and good people.

More of an "I was young and idealistic" excuse than an apology.

What I want to know is why she wasn't tried for treason.

A lot of people were calling for it. When an American POW, at great risk, manages to covertly pass a note to a visiting American, and that visitor promptly hands it over to the POW's captor ... well, there's no apology good enough.

I agree. I would honestly throw a brick at her if she was within range. You can disagree with a war without being a traitor.

I also think her being cast as Nancy Reagan is a tasteless political gesture.

I will not watch this film or any film casting that traitor.

I had close relatives that died in Vietnam. I barely was too young to go myself.

Looking at it with hindsight...what was gained by all of the US lives lost?

Good Vietnamese food places throughout the States created by refugees?
