During an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, former Bill Clinton advisor and liberal author Naomi Wolf warned that America under President Joe Biden is becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes.”
“That is not a partisan thing,” Wolf said. “That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”
“I’ve been writing for months and months about what I see as the terrible crisis that we’re in, that we have to recognize under the guise of a real medical pandemic,” Wolf said to Carlson. “We’re really moving into a coup situation, a police state situation and that’s not a partisan thing, that’s, as you say, that transcends everything you and I might agree or disagree on that should bring together left and right to protect or Constitution. We’re absolutely moving into what I call step 10.
“I wrote a book in which I pointed out there were 10 steps that would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy,” she continued. “Whether they’re on the left or the right they always do the same 10 things and now we’re at something I never thought I’d see in my lifetime. You described it really, really well. It is step 10 and that’s the suspension of the rule of law, that’s when you start to be a police state and we’re here, there’s no way around it.”

Wolf, who served as an adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, told host Tucker Carlson that in her view, the United States is swiftly “moving into a coup situation, a police state” as a result of Biden’s ongoing coronavirus-related economic shutdowns. Wolf added that she believes the orders are being improperly extended under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.”
Wolf said she has interviewed U.S. citizens of various backgrounds and political affiliations who are in a state of “shock and horror” as “autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of totalism fascism in the ’20’s,” she told Carlson.
