    Naomi Wolf…John Pilger…cats and dogs living together! Mass hysteria!

  2. H B Bear says:

    When you’ve lost Naomi Wolf …

  3. Mother Lode says:

    It is really strange to find people like Naomi Wolf saying things I agree with.

    Must be scarier for her. What I am seeing is consistent with my take on the world – the the progressives are the tyrannical ones. For her this would be a rude awakening.

  6. Catfeesh? says:

    Yes but what is really saddening is that dills like Wolf are only now just waking up to the fact. Bit slow, eh?

  7. Struth says:

    Surrounded by insanity.
    The lock downs are still happening in Europe and England and in the more left wing states of the US. They will probably happen here in winter again. We still cannot leave the country and masks and all the socialist distancing bullshit is still with us.
    So tell me where I am wrong, please……
    There is a vaccine available now, so those scared of the virus can stay home until they get it if that is their wish, but there is now no excuse to not open everything up, including international travel immediately. There never has been an excuse that warrants any of this anyway, but at this point we need to observe now, that the fear and excuse of covid used by tyrants no longer exists.
    Somebody said yesterday, “imagine the outrage if a plane load of un-vaccinated people flew in from China”
    To me this is insanity, is it to you?
    If the population scared of covid is vaccinated against it, why would they give a shit who flies in with it?
    There is now no worldly excuse for not immediately opening up the entire world and that includes “un-vaccinated for covid” international travel. Fear covid? Get a vaccination.
    That it is not happening proves this never has been about a virus, but the globalist elite commos taking over by force. Klaus and his Devos/WEF/UN mates.
    A coup d’etat.

    Sadly, most American liberals (including members of my own family) won’t have seen that Naomi Wolf segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight as they won’t watch Fox News for religious reasons. What they will get is a sliming of Wolf via CNN and the MSM for appearing on Carlson’s show.

    MSM fake news is now wall -in-wall in every American household, except for the tiny minority that watch Carlson and Fox — a broken down shadow of the network it was four months ago, its ratings decimated because it abandoned Trump voters.

  9. duncanm says:

    I’ve never agreed with much of her arguments, or her hysteria.

    She seems to have come around (apart from maybe the hysteria bit).

    Grateful for the serious, gracious, important discussion with
    @TuckerCarlson
    tonight. It’s an emergency; constitution is burning; we don’t have to agree on everything to respect one another, join together to save our previous freedoms. Thank you,
    @TuckerCarlson
    , and your team.

  10. duncanm says:

    ‘That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on,’ Wolf said to Carlson, owning up to the political divide between the two.

    indeed.

    Ms Wolf in sheep’s clothing?

  12. duncanm says:

    .. maybe, like Tucker, I just ignored her.

    This, published in 2007, lays it out.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_End_of_America:_Letter_of_Warning_to_a_Young_Patriot

    Wolf outlines ten steps that “closing societies” — such as Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy, and Stalin’s Russia — have historically followed. These steps, Wolf claims, are being observed in America now.

    The steps are:

    1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
    2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
    3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
    4. Set up an internal surveillance system.
    5. Infiltrate and harass citizens’ groups.
    6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
    7. Target key individuals.
    Co8. ntrol the press.
    9. Cast criticism as espionage and dissent as treason.
    10. Subvert the rule of law.[3]

    It’s pointed at your head now, ‘cheeks.

  15. Lee says:

    “Lunatic fascists”! A considered view, obviously.

    Who would have guessed you are in lockstep with lunatic leftists?
    LOL

  16. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    Tucker spent the entire interview looking like a stunned mullet, which is entirely unsurprising when even dyed in the wool collectivist idiots like Wolf (and Pilger) begin to denounce the blatant totalitarianism of their erstwhile confreres.

  17. Rabbi Putin says:

    I give zero fks about lefties who are belatedly seeing the light. The Trump train has been and gone and if you weren’t on it you are not my ally.

  18. Luzu says:

    Kim,

    I’m not sure lunatic fascists is as hyperbolic as you seem to think.

    The fascist motto is “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State”. Do you deny that the Left/Democrats are the party of big government, who see the state as the answer to everything and have absolutely no hesitation in using government bodies to crush opposition? Seems awfully fascist to me.

    As to lunacy, I know that the word derives from the Latin for moon, linking mental illness in the past to the lunar cycle. My idea of lunatic is closer to those who are simply impervious to reason, who positively glory in suspending their reason because of their emotions, whose response to any situation is to claim victimhood, oppression and minority status as a way of achieving moral authority. Gone is the idea of looking at the facts and drawing one’s own conclusion. Stoicism, self-reliance or even just faith in one’s own ability to reason is no longer valued.

    In light of that, I think lunatic fascists is entirely apt.

    It’s a famous saying that when the facts change (or new information comes to light) that one should change one’s opinion. What do you do, Kim?

  21. Captain Katzenjammer says:

    Maybe she’s just maturing later than is usual. Let’s see what else she finally realises. In the meantime her fellow travelleres will eat their own like with Oriana Fallaci.

  22. Roger says:

    Given Wolf ‘s rather dubious career, culminating in her last book Outrages, which I think was pulled by her US publisher due to factual erros that undermined her argument, I don’t think Carlson did himself any favours by having her on his program.

    ‘That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on,’ Wolf said to Carlson, owning up to the political divide between the two.

    indeed.

    Just at the end of the clip I believe they were about to make the point that the Democrats in DC were deliberately stoking divisions between the left and right so their focus and energy would be elsewhere while the nation was being transformed.

  24. Mother Lode says:

    Further to my previous comment, I see Dim has very obligingly given an example of exactly that.

    No care for what is being done to America, just fighting the same reflexive fight against the right.

    A very, very useful idiot.

    There is now no worldly excuse for not immediately opening up the entire world and that includes “un-vaccinated for covid” international travel. Fear covid? Get a vaccination.

    I wrote the comment about “imagine the outrage if a plane load of un-vaccinated people flew in from China”. (I actually said Wuhan but same same.)

    To clarify, my point was that the drones who slavishly support the actions of our assorted Governments (Dan, Palacechook, that bloke in the west) coupled with a near hysterical MSM, would cause merry-hell if a planeload of un-vaccinated tourists arrived. It is self-evident that large scale inbound tourism cannot re-commence if two weeks of mandatory quarantine is required.

    The only thing delaying the re-opening of international tourism is the rollout of the vaccination program. I have previously said that I believe international tourism will re-commence from October this year once the ‘majority’ of Australians are vaccinated.

    I also believe the airlines will insist on confirmation that each inbound passenger has been vaccinated and yes, those Australians who fear covid should get vaccinated if they think they will catch it from a tourist.

    BTW, I thought it was outrageous that Australians were forbidden to leave the country – I repeatedly wrote to my State and Federal MPs expressing my disapproval.

    There are simply too many ‘nervous nellies’ (aided by a bloodthirsty MSM) to open the borders until a significant percentage of Australians are vaccinated after which there will be no excuse not to.

  28. JohnJJJ says:

    All yanks market themselves. The only truth is selling books, being centre of attention in NY and speaking engagements. She is sidelined by the Democrat win and now needs another vital issue/crisis to get back in the media. Watch them all have new urgent opinions. It is all talk to get the clicks.
    ” full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”
    Don’t get sucked in.

  29. Leo G says:

    Charles Cook observed in his 2014 National Review article “The fevered delusions of Naomi Wolf”

    At what point, though, does the satire become the reality? Over the last eight years, Naomi Wolf has written hysterically about coups and about vaginas and about little else besides. She has repeatedly insisted that the country is on the verge of martial law, and transmogrified every threat — both pronounced and overhyped — into a government-led plot to establish a dictatorship. She has made prediction after prediction that has simply not come to pass.

    Has the reality proved a satire of the National Review article- or is A Wolf just hawking her conspiracy theory books to a new readership to “make Naomi great again”?

  30. Tintarella di Luna says:

    Branco’s got the answer of who is really the fascist– well looky here it’s this guy who in one interview said to the effect it would great to sorta have a guy in charge but be speaking into his earphone —

  31. Entropy says:

    The thing about the likes of Pilger and Woolf is their shtick is being seen to be against the establishment. So, snore.

  32. Dave in Marybrook says:

    Interesting bit of copy, duncanm-
    But the muddiness and fluff in her writing does kinda prove Leo G right.
    In her ten points,
    3 = 6, and also 7
    4 = 5
    1 = 7
    2 = 6

  33. duncanm says:

    Wolf’s problem has always been hyperbole and lack of attention to detail.

    Way back from the days of “The Beauty Myth”, where she confused anorexia death and sufferer numbers.

  34. Catfeesh:

    Yes but what is really saddening is that dills like Wolf are only now just waking up to the fact. Bit slow, eh?

    They aren’t ‘just waking up to the fact’, Catfeesh.
    They are waking up up now precisely because it’s too damn late!
    The Republicans are being set up again – these people will weasel their way into the Republican Party and will be accepted with wide open arms because they’ve seen the light.
    FFS, they are Libertarian Marxists and their job is to infiltrate the enemy’s ranks.
    Never, ever admit the enemy into your ranks, no matter how pious they now sound.

  35. jupes says:

    It’s always good to hear a lefty take the red pill and state the bleeding obvious. Even if they are utter fuckwits.

  36. Miltonf says:

    At least she’s got the guts and honesty to call it out.

  37. Struth says:

    I knew you were describing how others would react speedbox, and the description of it being insane was not directed at you personally.
    However it is insane, that once we have a vaccine available, to care if those people arriving in our country, are vaccinated or not.
    Concerned?
    Get yourself vaccinated and STFU!!

    And yes, there will be dumb hysterical Karens, male (ish) and female screaming tears of hysterics, but the government cannot justify to the majority of people, surrendering to this illogical thinking and insanity.

    I wouldn’t trust her as far as I can throw Christine Nixon.

    She’s just hooked on publicity, at any cost. She’s a sloppy and dishonest researcher with an appalling track record for lying and manipulating data.

    Having her claiming to be on your side is not something to be proud of.

  42. Speedbox says:

    And yes, there will be dumb hysterical Karens, male (ish) and female screaming tears of hysterics, but the government cannot justify to the majority of people, surrendering to this illogical thinking and insanity.

    God knows that’s the truth. This covid thing has really turned into a hysterical over-reaction that was/is fanned by a bloodthirsty media. Remember the old “if it bleeds it leads” media maxim? I can’t think of a better example in media history. The GFC would probably be second but covid reporting is still streets ahead for irresponsible, misleading and ‘stampede inducing’ hype.

    ps. No offence was taken at your earlier post. 🙂

  43. Michael Warren says:

    Lunatic fascists, I like it! Well may people call ME a fascist (for my anti-leftist views), but at least I am not a lunatic fascist (like the leftists).

    No.

    You reduced it to essentials.

    All the other words she used was padding to make it look like an argument.

  49. Tintarella di Luna says:

    “She’s just hooked on publicity, at any cost. She’s a sloppy and dishonest researcher with an appalling track record for lying and manipulating data.

    She sure is — they pulped her book didn’t they?

  50. Dinky says:

    I have little sympathy for the likes of Wolfe, Pilger, Greer, etc. They help to create this leftist monster & then complain when it turns around attacks them.

  51. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “She sure is — they pulped her book didn’t they?”

    Yep.

  52. Cassie of Sydney says:

    I remember Wolf’s claim in the early 2000’s that she’d been “sexually encroached” by noted literary critic Harold Bloom when she was at Yale.

    She’s an attention seeker and prone to fantasy.

  53. Tintarella di Luna says:

    I remember Wolf’s claim in the early 2000’s that she’d been “sexually encroached” by noted literary critic Harold Bloom when she was at Yale.

    She would say that wouldn’t she? Given the adulation and massaging she’s had for all of her ‘career’

  54. Tintarella di Luna says:

    Here’s the New York Times critiquing the novel by Naomi Wolf called Outrages the source of so much outrage when published because of her proclivity to assume she knows it all — in a moment of eviscerating truth-telling – sadly that was then.

  55. Baa Humbug says:

    Wolf is a libertarian second wave feminist (and a third rate author of some shit)
    She didn’t just awaken. I recall she had a number of long podcast interviews with the likes of Jordan Peterson, Steven Crowder and I think Dave Rubin.

    My only criticism of her (and others like her) is that she helped create this monster but doesn’t recognize that or won’t admit to it.

  56. PB says:

    Kim sounds so 2017.

    Orange-Man-Bad is over. C’mon man, it’s the era of Corn-Pop now.

  57. Boambee John says:

    when even dyed in the wool collectivist idiots like Wolf (and Pilger) begin to denounce the blatant totalitarianism of their erstwhile confreres.

    When munty, the ostrich, Felicia, ‘ed Case and Kimmmmeeee and their ilk come on board with Pilger and Wolf, the lion will truly have lain down with the lamb.

    Indeed. It’s a bit like John Cleese coming of late to regret the departure of the civilised Britain of his youth. He fails to mention that he and the Pythons and their ilk did more than most to destroy that Britain using sneering ridicule.

    While I generally agree with what they are saying, I find it hard to ignore their culpability.

  59. mem says:

    Baa Humbug says

    My only criticism of her (and others like her) is that she helped create this monster but doesn’t recognize that or won’t admit to it.

    Nevertheless, at least her voice is raised and may impinge on those that haven’t twigged to the enormous assault on our democracies and civil rights. She is correct I believe in saying that there is only a small window within which our rights can be clawed back. Her voice is therefore important which is why the trolls are out discrediting her. So I say thanks Naomi. At least she has spoken up when few others have and I would also say the same of Pilger. I have already sent Naomi’s and Pilger’s comments on to all my lefty friends (total hypocrites most being worth big bucks, driving BMW’s and investing in RE). It’s been terribly fashionable to be a lefty but now, as someone else has said, when you realize the gun is loaded, you may want to think twice about the slaughter that will follow.

  60. struth says:

    I wonder why we tolerate the reformed leftist who makes no real amends for their behaviour.
    They are resposible for all that is happened, yet we on the right welcome them with open arms once they’ve already wrecked the joint and realise it isn’t a utopia after all.
    So they still take no responsibility ……………………………..

  61. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “While I generally agree with what they are saying, I find it hard to ignore their culpability.”

    Agree wholeheartedly and it is something I have written about here before. I note that there are now quite a few feminists (first and second wave) and gays and lesbians who are waking up to this sinister transgender agenda. The move to transition children is actually an assault on homosexuality…it is the ultimate conversion therapy…the very thing that progressives scream and shout about….because many of the young children being “affirmed” into this transgender nonsense are probably gay and lesbian. I read recently that there is high school in the UK with (unusually) quite a few “transgender” teenagers but no gay or lesbian teenagers. So some “progressive” gays and lesbians have now set up new organisations in the UK (and here) called LGB Alliance (note the missing letters….deliberate) in order to distance themselves from the sinister trans and queer lobbies. However these groups need to own up to their culpability in all of this sinister craziness. They stoked the fire and the fire is now burning out of control.

  62. struth says:

    If the schools are sexually abusing children mentally and physically, and the parents aren’t kicking the shit out of those doing it to their children, you may as well take that as a sign our civilisation is finished.

  63. Professor Fred Lenin says:

    Reformed marxists are like reformed christians ,overzealous and bitter about being fooled for so long they bring their previous hate feelings with them no one hates like a socialistor religous fanatic . Not very nice people not the sort of company you would seek out,still usefull idiots in the fight back and once you have won they will be discarded .

  64. Dinky says:

    once they’ve already wrecked the joint and realise it isn’t a utopia after all.

    They either didn’t study history or chose to ignore it. The French revolution had The Terror, the Russian revolution had collectivisation, the Chinese revolution had the Cultural revolution. They all ate their own & it wrought nothing but death & misery and yet old & new leftists still persist in doing the same thing & expecting a different result. The more worrying part is most them don’t want a different result.

  65. TBH says:

    Jeez when you’ve lost the likes of Wolf and Pilger you really have disappeared off the cliff.

  66. Luzu says:

    Sorry, Kim, but you don’t know me from a bar of soap.

    I have a degree in Russian, was married to a Russian for twenty years, my children are half-Slavic and I have travelled there. It is not fascistic in the slightest. Corrupt? Yes. Grounded in their own history and culture? Yes. Fascistic? No. That’s simply the word you use for stuff you don’t understand or like or cannot fully comprehend. Or worse, a word you have heard in regards to Russia and now vomit up on reflex.

    Sorry, peoples. I have fed the troll. Again. But ignorance always has to be confronted. And Kim is thick as. And loving it.

  67. Baa Humbug says:

    Its OK Luzu. Sometimes it’s good to talk to the wall. (same as talking to kim)

  68. mem says:

    I am of the view if someone throws you ammunition and you are stuck in a corner you use it regardless of who tossed it. OK so are few lefty outriggers are dumping on their fellows and they have been, and will likely continue to be, despicable people. But use their bile to advantage. Who knows what else it will elicit. Or you can just keep on winging and give up as I suspect most here have.

    Kim started out as a mild troll to probe the water, and now has got to the point of packing as many blatant lies into the shortest space as possible. Not a whole lot of personality in this Kim-sock, but I suspect we are nearing the end of the trajectory.

    But ignorance always has to be confronted. And Kim is thick as. And loving it.

    Kim thinks the typical Cat reader is thick … this is knavery not foolishness.

    A fool will occasionally get something right by accident, an ignorant person will start to learn, a dopey person will at least stop to think for a while.
