Concerns about the future of America are increasingly being felt and recently, these were expressed in the voice of a former advisor to former President Bill Clinton, who participated in Tucker Carlson Tonight and warned of a totalitarian risk posed by the government of Joe Biden.
“America is becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes” under President Biden’s leadership,” said Naomi Wolf, a Democrat and feminist.
Wolf, who worked as an advisor during former President Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign in the late 1990s, told the Fox host that her concern is that, in her view, the U.S. is moving at breakneck speed to a “coup situation,” to “a police state,” thanks to the situation caused by the economic and political measures related to the coronavirus pandemic. Biden’s totalitarian power-grab, in Wolf’s eyes, is taking advantage of the “disguise of a real medical pandemic.”
Wolf dismisses the totalitarian momentum in Washington being seen as partisan issues. “This transcends anything you and I might disagree or agree on. That should unite the left and the right to protect our Constitution,” Wolf told Carlson on his show.
Her concerns, however, she hasn’t just made them public on Fox News. On Twitter, Wolf has been quite open about her views regarding 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 wrote.
The former adviser, who in her appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight adopted what to many might pass as Republican-speak, explained why she finds the new Democratic administration’s move forward totalitarian.
“The state has now crushed businesses, prevented us from meeting in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment states, is invading our bodies…which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining in New York state…the violations go on and on,” she said.
Fox News reported that the progressive analyst wrote a book outlining a decalogue of the steps would-be tyrants always take when they want to end democracy. Wolf, claims that the U.S. is headed for the ultimate stage of the totalitarian project.
“Whether they’re on the left or the right, they do these same ten things,” Wolf explained – as reported by Fox News – “and now we’re at something I never thought I’d see in my lifetime… it’s step 10 and that’s the suspension of the rule of law and that’s when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There’s no way around it,” she told Carlson with noticeable concern.
“This transcends anything you and I might disagree or agree on. That should unite the left and the right to protect our Constitution.”
Wolf said she has spoken to American citizens of various political affiliations who are in a state of “shock and horror” as “autocratic tyrants in the state and now, at the national level are creating this kind of fusion of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of totalitarian fascism in the 1920s,” Wolf pointed out to Carlson.
“They’re using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; property rights, assembly rights, worship rights, all the rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution,” he added.
Wolf wished Americans would wake up quickly because history shows that there is always a brief window of opportunity where people can fight back before it’s too late.
