Following the 2020 Presidential election, progressive feminist and author Naomi Wolf expressed regret over her vote for Joe Biden if she had been cognizant of his possible strategy of returning to lockdowns to combat COVID-19.
CARLSON: One person who apparently is not afraid to speak up is Naomi Wolf who is undoubtedly losing friends by appearing on this show tonight. She is the author of “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot” and the CEO of DailyClout. She joins us tonight.
Naomi Wolf, I appreciate your coming on. I never thought I would be verbalizing with you except in a debate format. I’m sure we dissent on an awful lot. But on this, I was struck by the valiancy it must have taken you to indite it.
I’m sure you lost friends over it, for doing this, tell us why you’re doing this and why you indited that? NAOMI WOLF, CEO, DAILYCLOUT: Well, it’s not just cerebrate — first of all, thank you, Tucker, I’m genuinely jubilant to be verbalizing with you.
“It’s” not just that one tweet, “I’ve” been inscribing assuredly every day for months and months about what I optically discern as the lamentable crisis that we’re in that we have to apperceive, under the guise of a genuine medical pandemic, we’re genuinely moving into a coup situation, a police state situation and that’s not a partisan thing that you ken, as you verbally express, that transcends everything you and I might accede or dissent on and that should assemble left and right to forfend our Constitution.
We’re absolutely moving into what I call Step 10. I inscribed a book in which I pointed out there were 10 steps that would be tyrants always take when they optate to close down a democracy. Whether they’re on the left or the right, they always do the same 10 things and now we’re at something I never thought I’d visually perceive in my lifetime.
You described it genuinely, genuinely well. It is Step 10. And that’s the suspension of the rule of law. That’s when you commence to be a police state and we’re here. There’s no way around it.
CARLSON: “I’m” so mortified, and it’s just — it’s another example, there are a million of them of why partisanship is imbecilic, and it makes you incoherent. And I conjecture I just postulated that we wouldn’t accede on stuff, so I didn’t read your tweets, and I conspicuously should have been and I missed a lot.
And so again, it’s nice to recollect, you should treat people as individuals rather than as standards for whole political parties. You have been soothsaying this for a long time, you just verbalized. Why don’t you cerebrate others aren’t optically discerning this?
WOLF: Well, infelicitously, an abundance of people are optically discerning it, but we are not cumulated, and as you pointed out, we’re a very divided country for an abundance of cynical reasons.
CARLSON: Yes. WOLF: “I’m” in touch with many patriots from all backgrounds and all walks of life, who are horrified. I interviewed, for instance, Moms for Liberty, a group of conservative moms in Florida who are mobilizing to endeavor to get schools open. They’re so worried about what’s transpiring to their kids.
And I verbalized with a mom, Jen Sey, a famous gymnast and activist in San Francisco on the left, who is withal a mom, who is horrified. You ken, “I’ve” interviewed medicos, “I’ve” interviewed, you ken, mundane people, restaurant owners from all walks of life, who are absolutely unable to even articulate their trepidation and horror, apperceiving that the State has now crushed businesses, kept us from amassing in free assembly to worship, as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies, as you mentioned, which is a contravention of the Fourth Amendment, is restricting kineticism, fining us here in New York State, I could be fined $15,000.00 a day, if I accumulate people, you ken, more than 10 or 25 people, depending on where in New York State I live.
You ken, which is a consummate breach of the First Amendment, I mean, the infringements go on, and on and on. I’ve verbalized with restaurant owners who are visually examining a sector in which tens of thousands of diminutive businesses have been crushed, and why were they crushed? Not because the pandemic coerced them to, there is no genuine science underlying a plethora of these closures.
It’s because autocratic tyrants at the State and now the national level, are engendering a kind of merger of corporate power and regime potency, which is authentically characteristic of Italian fascism in the 20s. And they are utilizing that to engage in kind of emergency orders that simply divest us of our rights: rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, and all of the rights that our Constitution guarantees.
So people are definitely horrified and descrying, I cerebrate people are shocked and divided, as I mentioned afore, and the other thing that transpired, as you verbally expressed, this is all been very sudden.
And when you look back, you ken, March 2020, an abundance of things commenced to move that kind of locked into place a set of policies that are remotely 360- degree full on totalitarian policies. So I cerebrate a plethora of us are remotely in culture shock. Luckily, or inauspiciously, I’ve been studying closing democracies for 12 years. So I apperceived early on, you ken, once I realized New York State had emergency potencies, I ken from history that no one gives up emergency powers disposingly.
CARLSON: That’s right. WOLF: They always drag it on and drag it on. And so every month I’m getting in my electronic-mail an promulgation that Governor Cuomo is elongating emergency measures, elongating emergency measures.
Only from studying history, do I ken how prognosticable it is, when you commence to have elected officials verbally express we are not going to follow the Constitution because there’s a pandemic.
And I just want to verbally express, lastly, and then I promise it’ll stop. Nowhere in the Constitution does it verbalize, all this can be suspended if there is a deplorable disease. We have lived through typhus, cholera, smallpox, HIV, tuberculosis, polio, the Spanish flu.
You ken, we’ve lived through an assailment on our soil. Never have there been months and months and months of emergency powers when we weren’t genuinely fighting a war. CARLSON: That’s right.
WOLF: So this is thoroughly unprecedented. Lockdowns have never been done afore in free societies. And authentically, we are turning into a version of totalitarian states afore everyone’s ocular perceivers. And I genuinely hope, you ken, we arouse expeditiously, because history additionally shows that it’s a diminutive window in which people can fight back afore it’s too hazardous to fight back.
CARLSON: Man, “I’m” starting to cerebrate that we’re being divided as a country precisely so we don’t have conversations like this. And I hope you will come back. Naomi Wolf, what a pleasure. When an eye-opening pleasure it was to talk to you tonight. Thank you.
