Somebody at the New Hampshire Women’s Leadership Summit developed a sudden nut allergy.

You’d think that if you invited Jane Fonda to speak at your event, you’d know what you were getting yourself into as far as possible backlash, but that doesn’t appear to have been the case at this event:

NASHUA – Following a community outcry, organizers of a respected women’s seminar have retracted their invitation to have actress Jane Fonda speak at the event.

With threats of a possible protest looming, Fonda will no longer serve as the keynote speaker for the New Hampshire Women’s Leadership Summit scheduled for June 10 at Nashua Community College.

Last week, several veterans spoke in opposition of Fonda’s public appearance in New Hampshire, calling her a traitor and anti-American.

“In recent days, we have heard voices in our community expressing moving objections to the selection of our main keynote speaker,” Dr. Annabel Beerel, founder of the summit, wrote in a statement issued Friday. “While the summit encourages public discourse and diverse opinions, we do not wish to cause pain to our veterans. In addition to the many outstanding presenters and panels scheduled, we are working on engaging a new keynote (speaker) for the conference.”

I was going to suggest that Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann be invited to replace Fonda — it is, after all, in New Hampshire — but I doubt those ladies would agree to speak there at this point. To paraphrase Marx (don’t get excited Jane, I’m talking about Groucho, not Karl): I refuse to join any club that would initially have Jane Fonda as a keynote speaker.
