Former Clinton Adviser Warns that America is Becoming a “Totalitarian State”
Feminist author and adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, Naomi Wolf, told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday evening that America is becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes.”
Wolf told Tucker that she believes the United States is "moving into a coup situation, a police state," a consequence of Biden’s continuous economic shutdowns in relation to the coronavirus pandemic. She also added that the lockdowns have been implemented as a "guise of a real medical pandemic."
She said, "That is not a partisan thing. That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution."
On Twitter, Wolf has been vocal about her disagreement with the lockdowns. In one tweet, she posted, “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.”
I can’t say we couldn’t tell you that was going to happen, Ms. Wolf. Biden’s vocal support for a 100-day mandatory mask mandate in each state on the campaign trail, even though he didn’t have the power to impose such a requirement, should have been a hint.
She said, "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.”
In a book she had written, the left-wing author outlined 10-steps that “would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy.” At this point in time, Wolf says we’re at step 10 which she states, “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."
"They are using that 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,” she said.
Wolf argued that, "lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a of totalitarian state before everyone's eyes."
"I really hope we wake up quickly," she said, "because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back."
Amen! Finally, someone on the left who can openly tell the public exactly what the extended lockdowns are.
I’ve been saying since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic that the lockdowns were implemented to practice and instill a Marxist approach to controlling what citizens can and cannot do. Lockdowns to this extent were never done for pandemics in more recent history such as SARS in 2003 and H1N1 (Swine flu) in 2009. Progressives unabashedly weaponized this recent pandemic to see how much they could get away with in terms of freezing our Constitutional freedoms (such as the freedom of religion and to peaceably assemble) and forcing people to rely on the government for financial security. Of course, though, they didn’t mind when mobs of thousands of far-left BLM and Antifa demonstrators, with and without masks, gathered, setup autonomous zones, rioted, and looted small businesses that could barely stay afloat in the wake of the lockdowns.
Liberal states like Michigan, New York and California have been in lockdown for almost a year now thanks to their elected officials who don’t mind their constituents suffering, especially small business owners. The same elected officials who claim that the lockdowns were implemented to protect people and curb the spread of the virus have been eating their own words with regard to wearing masks and social distancing from non-members of households for nearly a year.
Let’s remind you:
California Governor Gavin Newsom was caught dining out with his wife and 10 others in early November. The others in attendance were not from his household, mask-less and sitting close together, and all he says is “sorry” to his state.
Austin, Texas Mayor Steve Adler had to be pushed to apologize to his city after telling residents to stay home amid the coronavirus while he vacationed in Mexico.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went to get a blowout at a hair salon in San Francisco, mask-less, while no other “non-essential” businesses could be opened. No one could get similar services done in the city and Pelosi ended up blaming the salon owner after security video was released and went viral of Pelosi getting the services done.
The list goes on and on and on with what former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany so rightly labeled as “Democrat hypocrisy.”
Wolf is 100% right in that this is a dangerous time for our Republic, and we need to wake up and see the obvious motives of the far-left right under our noses. With at least four more years of a progressive Biden administration, there’s no telling what else they’ll have in store for us after the one-year anniversary of the pandemic in America. Dr. Fauci just the other day said on live TV that it’s “possible” Americans will wear masks going into 2022.
This what the left wants and we can’t let it go on.
