Naomi Wolf: US Becoming ‘Totalitarian State’ With COVID Lockdowns

Former Bill Clinton campaign adviser Naomi Wolf has warned the United States is becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes.”

In a Monday interview on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the controversial commentator and author said ongoing lockdowns are moving the country “into a coup situation, a police state” under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.”

“We know from history no one gives up emergency powers,” she said.

“That is not a partisan thing,” Wolf told Carlson. “That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”

“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,” she said.

“Lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes,” she added.

She warned there are 10 things “would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy.”

“Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things,” Wolf said, “and now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime … 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.”

“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.”
