When a liberal who is a former Democratic adviser warns that the nation is headed toward a totalitarian state, we need to pay attention. Naomi Wolf has served as an advisor to Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996 and recently voted for Joe Biden – a decision she is starting to regret.

She has been posting warnings on Twitter for months, but she reached a larger audience of conservatives when she appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” She told the host that this “is not a partisan thing.” In fact, she said it “transcends everything you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”

She went on to describe the impact the lockdowns have had. “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.” She added that the violations go on and on.

Naomi Wolf has been a student of totalitarian regimes and wrote a book years ago outlining the ten steps that “would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy.” She explained that the trend is always the same “whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things.” She never expected to see this happening in America in her lifetime.

Perhaps her most ominous statement was her belief that America has now arrived at step number 10. That would be the suspension of the rule of law. She sees it as a “merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of fascism in the ‘20’s.”

She believes it is time for America to wake up. I agree.viewpoints new web version
