    All women would claim to be Feminists, so you can be a Libertarian, and a Feminist. So I don’t see what her problem is.
    Q. How many Real Men would it take to change a light bulb?
    A. None of your damn business!

  2. Primer says:

    Naomi’s personal tragedy is: wrong for so long, how can she have any credibility when she finally lets the truth set her free.

  3. mh says:

    I was trained to fear, dread non-liberals…

    Very telling.

  4. RobertS says:

    She’s got a crush on Steve Bannon.

  5. Herodotus says:

    It’s called by some being “mugged by reality”.
    Glad it happens to people like Naomi before it’s too late.

  6. Gorilla Dance Party says:

    That’s because conservatives are more concerned with appearing genial to their enemies than actually winning any cultural battles. This is why we’ve gone from sodomy being illegal to having sodomites grooming children in public libraries. From allowing women to vote to having anti-male legal systems and working environments. From societies that were largely homogenous to ones that have imported multiple ethnic conflicts, gangs and criminals from around the world — to no discernable benefit. From nations with low taxes to ones that have parasitical over and under classes. And so on…

    Hey, but at least Naomi Wolf said something nice about us.

  7. areff says:

    The Oz chapter of the Soggy Biscuit Society dutifully piles on. At least three commenters on this thread are known recipients of Australia Council grants, just by the way.

  8. Tom says:

    You’re such a sweetie, Naomi.

    The next bit will be harder: most of your friends are political extremists and lunatics who want to replace the USA with a fascist dictatorship because they can’t stand the idea of people pursuing happiness without a posse of knowalls telling them what to think.

    You have to disavow the junk in their heads and reaffirm your love of freedom. After that, you will have few old friends because most of them are fascists who can’t stand the idea of people pursuing happiness and fulfilment without moral lectures from low-information idiots.

    Good luck,

    Tom.

    Yep, needy desperation.

    Woops. Repetition.

    When a Liberal Finally Becomes Conservative

  12. Dunnybrush says:

    It’s called maturing. The facts of life are conservative, hence the left’s war on facts.

  13. Dusty says:

    Libertarians: We want to take over the world and leave you alone.

  14. Dunnybrush says:

    Wish she wouldn’t call herself “dr” though. It’s a tad pathetic.

  15. PB says:

    “She’s got a crush on Steve Bannon.”

    Until she gets crushed by Steve Bannon.

  16. Rebel with cause says:

    What to do??

    Wouldn’t get too excited, Naomi is still seeking advice from the collectivist hive mind.

    What you’re seeing is alignment between the anti-vax left and free thinkers.

  17. C.L. says:

    Gorilla, I know what you mean and you’ve said it extremely well.
    But for me personally, there’s no particular buzz when a mature adult accepts reality. I’m pleased, I guess, but I don’t require their affirmations.

    As for losing all of those battles, I’m starting to wonder whether the reason they were lost is because conservatives/libertarians tend to be privatists who want somebody (as long as it’s not them, personally) to ‘do something.’

    When Santamaria took on the communists in the trades unions, he organised cells in every regional city, town and capital – which he visited. He published a well distributed pamphlet and wrote newspaper columns. Eventually, he had a TV slot (thanks to Kerry Packer). I read somewhere that a secretive “Sports Club” existed for more robust encounters with thuggery-prone reds on the docks etc. The Social Studies Movement meant business. They weren’t fucking around.

    Anyway, those people were joiners.

  18. Dan4eva says:

    Gee that didn’t take her long.

  19. duncanm says:

    mh – AwakenwithJP makes excellent vids.. there’s so many quotable lines in that one.

  20. Mick Gold Coast QLD says:

    “Wish she wouldn’t call herself “dr” though. It’s a tad pathetic.”

    But she is a doctor of some soft arts degree or other. I do not need to know anything about her – just another smelly ageing and desperate white sheila who pretends she has grown a penis, hates blokes and has obsessed about that for her whole miserable life … and is in dire need of a root.

    Oh dear, they are such a waste of time and space.

  21. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “That’s because conservatives are more concerned with appearing genial to their enemies than actually winning any cultural battles.”

    Correct.

  22. H B Bear says:

    Usually this only happens to Liars when they no longer require preselection.

  23. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Good on Naomi Wolf for speaking up…..she’s admitted that she regrets voting for senile Joe. I think she’s on a road of discovery and at least she’s brave enough to acknowledge her mistakes. She knows America is in peril….she knows free speech is under assault. We need more people like her to speak up…..and we should encourage her rather than diss on her or dismiss her.

  24. Hugh says:

    I have to say this about Dr Wolf.

    I listened to that BBC (?) interview re. her book detailing persecution and killing of homosexuals in 19th century England. The interviewer exposed her crucial faux pas, mistaking “death recorded” on the judgement as an indication that the convicted (homosexual) was executed.

    When she learned of her mistaken interpretation, she, in the interview, admitted it would have profound implications re. her book’s thesis.

    O.K., she should have done more research about legal terms.

    But I admired her integrity in the moment. She didn’t kick back and call the interviewer a homophobe, etc. She just admitted her possible error. It was one of the few moments on recent public media history when truth was admitted, even at the huge expense of the one admitting it.

    I hope I have half as much integrity when I’m proved wrong in such an embarrassing way. Kudos and prayers, Naomi Wolf.

  25. H B Bear says:

    Yep … acknowledging your (sic) on the wrong track is the start.

  26. mh says:

    Wiki

    Since around 2014, Wolf has regularly been described as being a conspiracy theorist.[a] She has received criticism for promoting misinformation on several topics, such as beheadings carried out by ISIL, Edward Snowden and the Western African Ebola virus epidemic.[10][11][12] During the COVID-19 pandemic, Wolf has objected to the lockdowns,[13] and has also frequently spread misinformation relating to COVID-19 vaccines.[14]

  27. nb says:

    ‘I was trained…’
    Why do we listen to people who allow themselves to be trained as to who to like, hold ademantine opinions, but haven’t a clue? Why is cluelessness suddenly not cluelessness?

  28. stackja says:

    How many will now demand Joe be impeached? Then impeach Comma LA. Then impeach Polesi.

    Well….given “Wiki” smears, it confirms Wolf is doing something right.

  30. FlyingPigs says:

    she’s still a Wolf.

  31. mh says:

    Well….given “Wiki” smears, it confirms Wolf is doing something right.

    Yes.
    I was just pointing out the Left haven’t been happy with their trained sister for a long time.

  32. luke73 says:

    most of your friends are political extremists and lunatics who want to replace the USA with a fascist dictatorship

    If by that you mean the Democratic party, I have to say they’re pretty fucking shit at being fascists and crushing their enemies like fascists would.

    Within just the last 48-72 hours the Garland Dept. of Justice have challenged a judges order to release Barr’s DoJ memo (the one he used to justify his decision to announce that he did not believe Trump’s behavior rose to the level of obstruction despite the massive evidence in Robert Mueller’s report)

    https://www.factcheck.org/2019/04/what-the-mueller-report-says-about-obstruction/

    AND Garlands DoJ have asked a judge to dismiss a lawsuit against Barr and Trump for the violent clearing of Lafayette Square with teargas so Trump could get a photo op with a bible.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/trump-lafayette-square-civil-lawsuit/2021/05/28/c413c840-bfb3-11eb-b26e-53663e6be6ff_story.html

    In addition to this the Democrats can’t get anything passed in the Senate (including laws to challenge the wave of voter suppression laws being legislated across dozens of Republican led states and a commission on the Jan 6 assault on Congress) because of the Jim Crow era filibuster that several Democratic senators refuse to remove or even modify.

    ..but hey I’m sure the forced gender reassignment FEMA camps for American conservatives will be opening up any day now.

  33. Rockdoctor says:

    Wow, Santamaria that brings back memories. I was taught by allegedly one of his relatives in the 1980’s. Chain smoker but despite us being absolute turds of teenagers and I admit I was one, very tolerant.

  34. Lee says:

    Well….given “Wiki” smears, it confirms Wolf is doing something right.

    Wikipedia likes to claim neutrality and objectivity, but in many of its articles on contentious or controversial topics it is anything but.

  35. candy says:

    Possibly she sees Biden and his antics with the pre-teen girls and has had second thoughts about what Democrat feminism means – ie, it’s fake and one supports Biden even if he fiddles around with little girls, and she does not want to be part of it.

  36. JohnJJJ says:

    More than likely she is worried that she will be irrelevant and out of the news. Her views mean zero, they are just words with no action except books and speaking tours. She is very smart, but always needs to be talked about.

  37. Boambee John says:

    challenge the wave of voter suppression laws

    Likey naoils hios colours to the mast.

    DemonRat tool confirmed. What is your problem with voter ID? ID is pretty much essential for anyone who wants a normal life.

    do you think Vance will finally get Trump?

  40. luke73 says:

    What is your problem with voter ID?

    John, there’s a shit ton more in those laws then just things to do with ID, drop boxes, polling locations, voting hours, mail ins, early voting etc….but in regards to ID, from my reading the concern Democrats have with that is to do with a decent % of their voters not having drivers licences and such, mainly due to living in urban areas and not having or needing a car.

    I reckon if the GOP said we want new voter ID laws AND to make sure they don’t disadvantage anyone we will also put some funds into making sure all American citizens of our state can be issued a voter ID (if they complete the required documentation & come in for a photo or whatever) then the Democrats wouldn’t have a leg to stand on in their objections, but the GOP don’t say that AFAIA.

  41. FlyingPigs says:

    re Wolf….

    all well and good but at the moment she is a genuine Wolf, running with sheep.

    I wouldn’t trust her at all at all.

    and I have no doubt of her expressed feelings but the sort of ‘psy-ops’ brainwashing she has lived does not just go.

  45. Only if we could get Naomi’s fact checkers to make sure her next set of work was “scholarly kosher” (correct) before its published.

  46. Arky says:

    What has happened to Naomi is what happened to me and what happened to many of us on here who came across to the conservative side after a life on the left.
    She has had that moment when the overbearing shits on the left have collided with her own self interest.
    It re- orientates your brain very effectively.
    Add in an ideological clash over something she believes (the feminism crap coming up against the transgender crap), and, more admirably, the free speech issue, and it’s a total break.
    Good on her. Many in the same position don’t have the honesty to make the change, and many on THIS side who have been lifelong conservatives have only a tribalist or superficial understanding because they have never had to examine their own beliefs.

  47. mareeS says:

    Late-term conversion, Naomi. We have always been nice people, just sensible, reasonable and logical, unlike hysterical screamers.

    Biden is a senile pederast.

    The protesters were let in and the “heroic cops” shot an unarmed civilian.

    Trump said don’t protest – social media BLOCKED him – and Democrats aren’t completely nuts or authoritarian (or at least very cynical and opportunistic) to want him indicted for a crime he didn’t commit?

    Gee. How non-fascist of them.

    You mean like just about every other democratic country that wants to protect the franchise and requires ID? Including Australia?
    I actually had a discussion with this Yank antiID advocate. His justification is these people are not capable of getting an ID. Invisible to the system etc etc. I suggested perhaps that was the problem and why was he more interested in them being able to vote while invisible, instead of actually helping them.

  58. Mother Lode says:

    The prodigal daughter.

    The great thing about having respect for individuals as humans, and not being intoxicated on progressive fury and hate, is that I have never wished Naomi (or anyone) death or harm. I have thought her malicious and wrong but the only thing I will have wished her is to get a clue.

    So when it happens I am at peace. When it is the other way around, when someone from the right errs and becomes a lefty then progressives have to turn 180 degrees. Someone they had called a brain damaged monster becomes a hero (which also means being a brain damaged monster is a step toward progressivism). It is not merely that their ideas and consequent acts change. They have to imaging the person has changed down almost to their DNA.

    It is the old truism: The right thinks their opponents are just wrong. The left believes their opponents are evil.

    The other sad thing about righties becoming lefties is that it is their fate is to be held up as the ‘real’ voice of the right like Malcolm Fraser was. To be a weapon rather than a person. Their utility obscures their humanity, but they can expect to be invited to swanky soirees where everyone drinks the latest ‘in’ wine, nibbles snacks no one particularly likes (but which far flung origins scream openness to diversity) and the entire conversation is an ant-like promiscuous exchange of hate pheromones that binds the collective together.

  59. bespoke says:

    Yes ML, but you always should be on gourd about the California effect by cranks and don’t forget about the base in exchange for a few cuddle’s to the ego.

  60. Boambee John says:

    Luke

    the concern Democrats have with that is to do with a decent % of their voters not having drivers licences and such, mainly due to living in urban areas and not having or needing a car.

    Many (Most? All?) states make free ID available on request (with confirmation of identity). That argument sounds like a DemonRat tactic to allow resident non-citizens, illegal immigrants and the dead to vote, either in person or by proxy.

    As for the drop boxes, do you seriously think that an unsecured drop box would not be rorted? Most of the other DemonRat whinges are just excuses to allow rorting by them.

    Perhaps think a bit before touting self-interested DemonRat talking points?

  61. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Apparently she’s having a leaving Jonestown event with climate change stuff too, from what I see. Hasn’t moved off the reservation too far yet, but far enough for the climate activists to flame her quite heatedly.

    Btw great headline CL!

  62. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Mother Lode says:
    May 30, 2021 at 7:30 am”

    Great comment ML……you can add John Hewson and Turdbull…….although whilst I think that both Fraser and Hewson were once right-wing, conservative, centre-right etc….Turdbull never was. He was just in it for himself

  63. bespoke says:

    Great comment ML……you can add John Hewson and Turdbull…….although whilst I think that both Fraser and Hewson were once right-wing, conservative, centre-right etc….Turdbull never was. He was just in it for himself

    Correct! 😁

  64. calli says:

    Their utility obscures their humanity

    Well observed, ML.

    You could also add that righties viewed through the deforming leftie specs are also stripped of their humanity by virtue of their opposition, i.e. lack of utility also obscures humanity.

    It then poses the question – who, in ProgressiveWorld, is truly human?

  65. Planker says:

    All members of ‘the tribe’ are leftards for life.
    Wolf has zero credibility, even when playing at move off the plantation.

  66. bespoke says:

    Born again evangelists.

  67. Luke73 says:

    Many (Most? All?) states make free ID available on request (with confirmation of identity). That argument sounds like a DemonRat tactic to allow resident non-citizens, illegal immigrants and the dead to vote, either in person or by proxy.

    Ok, so I just googled “How easy is it to obtain voter ID in the US” and the top result that came up was this;

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/getting-a-photo-id-so-you-can-vote-is-easy-unless-youre-poor-black-latino-or-elderly/2016/05/23/8d5474ec-20f0-11e6-8690-f14ca9de2972_story.html

    Now I realise it’s the Washington Post so you may well dismiss it as “fake news”, but the article is pretty comprehensive on why and how it is difficult for many elderly citizens, African Americans, Hispanics and low-income people to have valid photo ID for voting purposes. So to go back to my point, if states want to introduce more stringent voter ID laws it should be accompanied by funds towards making those easily available to all eligible citizens.

    As for the drop boxes, do you seriously think that an unsecured drop box would not be rorted?

    Of course an unsecured dropbox would probably be rorted, who is suggesting they would or should be unsecured?

    It then poses the question – who, in ProgressiveWorld, is truly human

    I lean left and I do not view Australian conservatives as my mortal enemies and most definitely do not view them as some as somehow less then fully human, that’s crazy. Yes I may disagree with them on many political issues but that’s it, I don’t personally know any left leaning person that feels differently to me on this (yeh of course there’s fringe extremist idiots online, left and right, but they represent a tiny minority of people).

    Obviously the progressive/conservative gap is much more polarised and embittered in the United States and many other countries, I am thankful we are not that point in our country and I think that’s in large part due to our inherited British parliamentary system of Democracy and probably our laconic national character a little bit too.

    Luke you might like to take a look at the voting laws in Joe Bidens home State of Delaware where Voter ID is compulsory, No Early Voting provisions & No Drop Boxes available, with a number of other Democrat-controlled States also having similar provisions. But of course, as per usual the lapdogs in the MSM can’t bring themselves to exposing this hypocrisy and exhibit any standards of accurate & honest reporting of the Truth?

  70. Tel says:

    She has had that moment when the overbearing shits on the left have collided with her own self interest.
    It re- orientates your brain very effectively.

    The thing is that the “Progressive” movement is made up of lots of factions, each of which behaves in a selfish manner, while simultaneously pretending to be victims, and also part of a larger movement. That’s why you get this victim totem pole, and my concern is bigger than your concern oneupmanship.

    Naomi Wolf has always been part of the feminist faction, who are slowly going out of favour. She did an interview on Delingpole and she is perfectly open about saying that what yanked her crank was when the AZ vaccine was clearly more dangerous to women than to men, and has strange side effects like causing out of cycle menstruation, but the media hide these reports and the main “Progressive” movement has decided to demonize anyone who mentions it.

    Wolf hasn’t changed one bit, it’s simply that the “Progressive” power brokers aren’t giving sufficient attention to feminist concerns lately.

  71. Boambee John says:

    Luke

    Now I realise it’s the Washington Post so you may well dismiss it as “fake news”,

    I hope that you would also agree that WaPo would work hard to minimise any adverse impact of any change on the DemonRats. That would include pushing a line that voter ID is hard to get.

    Activists used to run voter registration campaigns. What prevents them from running ID campaigns (other that the possibility that such campaigns might restrict the opportunity for fraud)?

  72. Kneel says:

    “… if states want to introduce more stringent voter ID laws it should be accompanied by funds towards making those easily available to all eligible citizens.”

    Has been done – and nearly unused:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5JOlynHI3k

    In any case, to suggest that this is somehow “racist” against black and hispanic people is basically saying such people are too dumb to get a drivers license, or to work out where the local DMV is, or are incapable of getting there – that sounds racist to me.

  73. Luke73 says:

    Luke you might like to take a look at the voting laws in Joe Bidens home State of Delaware where Voter ID is compulsory, No Early Voting provisions & No Drop Boxes available, with a number of other Democrat-controlled States also having similar provisions.

    I wasn’t aware about Delaware so I’ll take your word for it, but I do know the solidly Democratic state of New York is (or was, I’m not sure after the new laws) more restrictive then Georgia in terms of voting hours, early voting, mail ins, drop boxes etc.

    The most troubling aspect of the new laws to me is those elements giving partisan legislatures the ability to over ride Secretaries of State in certifying elections and also the ability to replace/over ride County Boards of Electors if they certify a result the legislatures don’t like.

    I thank god that in Australia we have all our elections administered by an independent, publicly funded federal electoral commission, also compulsory enrolment/registration, vote on a weekend and use paper ballots, the USA is just a mess of different laws, requirements, dark money and other confusing crap.

    I hope that you would also agree that WaPo would work hard to minimise any adverse impact of any change on the DemonRats. That would include pushing a line that voter ID is hard to get.

    Like the NYT, obviously the WaPo is a liberal (small l) newspaper, but they both newspapers of record (editorial and news-gathering functions are considered authoritative) in the same way as the Wall St Journal is a centre right newspaper of record. Leaving aside each of those papers opinion pages, I view all three as reliable sources of information, your view may be different but that’s the way I see it.

  74. Turtle says:

    It’ll be interesting to see if Wolf is in this for the long haul. I’m not going to disparage her. Some of the finest conservatives are ex-lefties.

  75. bespoke says:

    If you have social security number then you can get a voter id.

  76. Boambee John says:

    Luke

    Leaving aside each of those papers opinion pages, I view all three as reliable sources of information, your view may be different but that’s the way I see it.

    As with the Australian MSM, their opinion pages have long since invaded and taken over the “news” pages. So, I do have a different view.

  77. Lee says:

    I lean left …

    ’nuff said!

  78. yarpos says:

    “I was trained to fear, dread non-liberals” seriously??

    Not trained to think critically or learn from history and observation apparently, at least for half a lifetime. She is scarily close to the real world now.

  79. Baa Humbug says:

    Many of us thought Wolf was being red pilled back about 3 years ago when she spent a lot of time with people like Jordan Peterson, Stephen Crowder, Dave Rubin and Joe Rogan among others.
    Yet, yet she still voted for Joe Biden.

    As a prominent feminist, Wolf caused much harm to our culture and was/is instrumental in the beginnings of its decline. Tiny bit of redemption is too late in my book.

    Wolf is all about writing books. That’s her gig and income now. With these tweets she is setting the stage for another book. Look for one in the coming 12 months or so.

  80. Tom:

    The next bit will be harder: most of your friends are political extremists and lunatics who want to replace the USA with a fascist dictatorship because they can’t stand the idea of people pursuing happiness without a posse of knowalls telling them what to think.

    The Highway – all eight lanes of it – to Damascus is becoming clogged with traffic and discarded scales…

    I reckon if the GOP said we want new voter ID laws AND to make sure they don’t disadvantage anyone we will also put some funds into making sure all American citizens of our state can be issued a voter ID (if they complete the required documentation & come in for a photo or whatever) then the Democrats wouldn’t have a leg to stand on in their objections, but the GOP don’t say that AFAIA.

    AFAIAA, when Nikki Haley was governor of South Carolina she had a photo ID law passed, and instituted a program for anyone who wanted photo ID to get it for free from any DMV branch, and in a state of over 5 million people exactly 30 took up the offer.

    Wolf is all about writing books. That’s her gig and income now. With these tweets she is setting the stage for another book. Look for one in the coming 12 months or so.

    and speaking engagements and fame. Her words mean nothing. It is disturbing to see so many conservatives taking notice of this as though it is real, firmly held and defend-able beliefs. She is the Hollywood of intellectuals.
