Leftist Naomi Wolf comes out swinging…in favor of the Constitution
By Andrea Widburg February 23, 2021
Naomi Wolf became well-known over the years as a third-wave feminist, a member of the Clinton camp, an advisor to Al Gore during his 2000 presidential campaign, and a reliable leftist on most issues.
On Monday, though, she surprised the heck out of Tucker Carlson and, probably, most of his audience, when she turned out to be a fierce defender of individual liberty.
A mesmerized Tucker listened as Wolf fluently expounded on principles of liberty and tagged the Biden government as creating “a totalitarian state before our eyes.”
Immediately after Biden’s election, she tweeted, “If I'd known Biden was open to ‘lockdowns’ as he now states, which is something historically unprecedented in any pandemic, and a terrifying practice, one that won’t ever end because elites love it, I would never have voted for him.”
Tucker was stunned – as were those of us who know Naomi – to hear her give a fluent, impassioned disquisition on American liberties and the threats they’re facing as states and Biden use them to grab permanent power.
Wolf asserts that what we are witnessing in America “is not a partisan thing.”
Instead, “it transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on.
That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”
Gathering steam, she told Tucker,
"The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies ... which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state ... the violations go on and on."
According to Wolf, totalitarian dictatorships always start the same way.
"Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things and now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime ... it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it."
Wolf then sounded an ominous warning:
“I really hope we wake up quickly because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”
