Things have gotten so bad in Joe Biden’s America that even some liberals are starting to notice that something is very, very wrong.
The latest woman to make her voice heard is former Clinton adviser and feminist author Naomi Wolf.
While her opinions on partisan politics and gender relations might be just about as wrong as you can get for many conservatives, Wolf’s growing bravery in speaking out against lockdowns and the creeping extremism of the Democratic party is worth noting.
As an author and scholar who studies political systems and democracy, Wolf says she has been alarmed by what is happening in the United States and recently went on Tucker Carlson Tonight to share her concerns.
America is Turning into a ‘Totalitarian State’
Those who are younger or have not studied history very much may find the current situation in this country a bit bizarre or intense but not really know what to make of it. For individuals like Wolf who have studied historical patterns it fits a very clear pattern.
The pattern is that of the central government seizing total control, ending individual protections under the law and then moving to remake and destroy any laws or Constitutional principles holding them back from total power.
Using executive lockdown orders under “the guise of a real pandemic,” Wolf noted that emergency powers keep being extended, because governments always want more power for themselves.
“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,” Wolf noted.
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.

We’re in a ‘Coup’ Situation and Headed for a Police State
Warning that we’re in a kind of coup scenario and headed for a full police state, Wolf went on an epic rant about the damage that’s being done to the American way of life, economy and citizens by the permanent lockdowns and restrictions.
“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,” Wolf noted, adding “the violations go on and on.”
Wolf has literally written a book on what dictators would do if they wanted to shut down democracy and seize power. It had ten steps toward the government seizing total control and the United States right now is at step 10.
“Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things. Now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime,” Wolf said, explaining that “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’s no exaggeration to say that the stage is being set for something truly horrific and don’t let anybody tell you that the warning was never sounded.
As Wolf put it, “autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of totalism fascism in the ’20s.”
“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 added.
In terms of what Americans can do? Number one is to wake up and realize just how bad things are and then to defend and protest and boycott for your rights.
“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.”
At least some liberals can still think. Thanks to Wolf for her bravery on this issue.
