A former Democratic adviser and a feminist author just issued a dire warning for Americans.
According to Naomi Wolf, who at one point was an adviser for Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection campaign, under the Biden administration, America is rapidly becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes.”
Wolf’s comments came during an appearance Monday on the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” There, she warned viewers that America is quickly “moving into a coup situation, a police state,” citing Biden and the Democrats’ restrictive coronavirus policies.
Wolf told host Tucker Carlson that those in power “are using [the coronavirus] to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees.”
Wolf noted how “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, this response by the government to the coronavirus is “completely unprecedented.” “Lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes,” she said.
Wolf, according to Fox, has written a book in which she goes through the ten steps that she argues all “would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy.” Wolf told Carlson that the United States is currently heading toward “step 10.”
“Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things,” Wolf said. “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.”
It ought to be a non-partisan issue
In recent months, Wolf has been especially critical of the Democrats’ approach to handling the coronavirus pandemic. In November, she tweeted that this approach has caused her to rethink the vote she cast in the 2020 election for President Joe Biden.
“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,” Wolf tweeted at the time.
In her interview with Fox, Wolf expressed her wish that the “left and right” would come together on this issue “to protect our Constitution” because it “is not a partisan thing” but something “that transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on.”
It does not appear that this unity is coming, though, which, according to Wolf, is bad news “because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”
