Naomi Wolf: O'bomb-a-zombie

Obama inauguration: A new tone. No more fake optimism for the people
Naomi Wolf
The new president's speech was so sophisticated, you have to gasp

I know that Barack Obama is incredibly smart, and it's not that I'm surprised that he gave a fantastic speech. But I've been following American politics for a long time, and sometimes you see something that works on so many levels that you kind of have to gasp at its sophistication.

This speech marked a sharp line in the sand, breaking overtly with the past administration. That message was clear and intentional. It is a much more confrontational approach than ­inauguration speeches have typically been in America. I am overjoyed.

DISCLAIMER: Before the chorus of detractors get started, my action in posting these articles to the Daily Paul does not constitute my endorsement of Naomi Wolf or her ideology or her Obama-worship. Truth be told, I got a lot out of her book "The End of America" and I appreciated her presence at the Revolution March on July 12th, 2008. But now I think it should be obvious to anyone that Ms. Wolf is decidedly not on the side of individual liberty and the Constitution.

Ms. Wolf asserts that "it is going to take a grassroots movement to support him [Mr. Obama] in reasserting the rule of law, " If Mr. Obama requires a "grassroots movement" to reassert the law, then what does that say about Mr. Obama's principles? Since he is supposedly the President, couldn't Mr. Obama simply act on his principles (if he indeed had any respect for individual liberty or the Constitution) and make great strides in "reasserting the rule of law"?

Wow. Who was it here that wanted to support her?

"I know that Barack Obama is incredibly smart, and it's not that I'm surprised that he gave a fantastic speech."

Gee, sounds like some unbiased analysis there. This cult around Obama is incredible.

Another quote by a TRUE lover of liberty

"Naomi Wolfe, who has talked about, you know, the 'fascist system'; 'this country's becoming a fascist system'. Well, she's only about 50 years late, right? Anyone who's read any history knows this happened in the 1930's. But she's got an article; she says 'Why I'm Voting For Obama'. And she says she's voting for Obama because, 'Oh my goodness ..we have this terrible system, and the people who are in charge know what they want to do, and they've got a plan; and we're not organized; we don't have a plan; but at least we have this potential leader figure in Obama.' And I said to myself 'This woman's NUTS!' Has she ever read the Constitution? It lays out the plan! We don't need Obama!"

- Edwin Vieira, 10/7/08 [source - skip to just before the 1h 37min mark]

Can you say Gatekeeper?

She's nothing more than a wolf in wolfs clothing. Leading the sheep from the darkness into the light and then right back into the darkness. Good try Naomi.

Naomi wolf should have no

Naomi wolf should have no speaking voice when it comes to politics she has NO clue what the hell she is talking about! I called her a moron before and I will do it again! she is a chameleon.. When you understand what True liberty and freedom are you do not go and worship at the feet of a tyrant Marxist! the next 4 years are going to be thew worst in this nations history and because of fools like wolf, this is where we are at!

Obama is not worse than Bush

Unfortunately, Obama will expand the Bush bailouts and deficits. It seems that the country is going to go socialist and bankrupt no matter which party is in power. Bush already was taking us in that direction, and Obama might not be quite as bad as Bush. Obama is taken tiny steps to at least create the impression that he is rolling back Bush's War on Terror. If the sheeple won't stop the politicians from making the country bankrupt, then it seems slightly better to go bankrupt with infrastructure improvements than with random wars that create nothing but blowback. (I voted for Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin. I don't support Obama.)

I dont agree with those of you who want to trounce Naomi Wolf.

I do not recommend that you all decide to beat Naomi to death, and I dont agree with Dr. Griffin on this one.

No one dislikes S.O.B.ama more than me. No one.

But I think we need to be careful here.

The vast majority are enamoured. There is no use for us to
destroy our friends just because they are confused. Caution all around is advised.

Caution is wise, but you are assuming that she is our friend

...when the evidence seems to indicate otherwise. Listen to her interview with Lew Rockwell and her multiple interviews with Alex Jones. She is a phony. She is not nearly as naive or ignorant as she acts. She is extremely intelligent and well-educated. She acts shocked and extremely intrigued by the most basic historical facts and libertarian perspectives on things that someone who lurks on Daily Paul for one day would know. In both interviews there are multiple times when she gasps before the interviewer even makes his point. "Well Naomi, are you aware that in 1945..." *GASP"* Seriously. Even if she didn't know the things they were telling her before (almost impossible to believe), she DOES know them now, and it hasn't changed her gatekeeper actions one iota. I have spent many hours studying her words and behavior, trying to figure out what her deal is. I'd love to believe that she is genuine and just confused, but I cannot reconcile that notion with reality.

Very good analysis

I was thinking the same thing listening to the interview. She was sucking up to Lew Rockwell and playing the fool because she probably thinks this will win her a larger following. "I'm gonna git me some of them dumb Ron Paul followers!"

Thanks bud...

I'm glad to see that you're out there kicking ass for liberty after your little episode with your health the other day.

Always remember that the real people here love you man. Please take care of yourself because you're a great friend and we need more people like you in the world (not less)!

YES

I totally agree. Naomi Wolf has exposed herself as a flaky, star-struck Obamaton. I am embarrassed that I put any credence in her claim of genuine concern for civil rights. It was all just marketing for her books.

I also agree that no president must have grass roots support to follow the law, just to subvert it. That's clearly where this is heading, and Naomi will follow wherever he leads.

False opposition.

"I think again most urgently arrest the criminals. That is the most urgent thing....There is not going to be an election as usual... If [Bush] can declare on October 3 that he's going to engage in martial law, if people don't do what he wants, why on earth would he hand over the power to Barrack Obama, the Presidency, the election? That is crazy thinking. That is denial. And, we have to snap out of it."

Naomi Wolf, a Rhodes Scholar, does NOT have a plan to save the American Republic but to lead people into rebellion. That will provide an excuse for martial law and prison camps, which is exactly what the elitists now want. She is eloquent in exposing the corruption of Republicans but is a supporter of the Democrat Party (NOT the solution) and offers false leadership. She implies that Obama would be better than Bush. Listen carefully to her so-called “solution”. When will Americans stop being suckered into following false leaders and playing the rigged political party game?

- G. Edward Griffin, 10/10/08 [source]

Much of what Wolf says is true, but she is a collectivist, a Rhodes Scholar, an admiring friend of the Clintons, a supporter of Obama, a promoter of Left-wing organizations, and a pied piper for the Democrat Party. Her so-called battle plan is to use justified anger at current Republican Leaders to continue the same elitist control under Democrats. Get it? The ploy is spelled F A L S E L E A D E R S H I P.

- G. Edward Griffin 10/17/08 [source]

"The Rhodes scholarship established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes’ seventh will are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes, in five previous wills, left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society … continues to exist to this day. To be sure, [it] is not a childish thing like the Ku Klux Klan, and it does not have any secret robes, secret handclasps, or secret passwords. It does not need any of these, since its members know each other intimately. It probably has no oaths of secrecy nor any formal procedure of initiation. It does, however, exist and holds secret meetings…. This Group is, as I shall show, one of the most important historical facts of the twentieth century."

- Carroll Quigley, mentor to Rhodes Scholar Bill Clinton, in his book Tragedy and Hope, page ix [source]

Naomi Wolf irks me.

I did a glowing video about her on youtube after she endorsed Ron Paul's legislation. My hope (there's that word again) was to find common ground with the liberals on YT, and to a tiny extent that happened.

But Ms. Wolf wants to lead rather than join the Liberty Movement. She is aloof. She arranged for someone else to be a go-between here on Daily Paul when she was trying to get out the vote for Obama. I defy you to find a way to contact her directly, or even to leave a comment on her web pages.

Thus Sprach Barack: Pouring Acid on Gazas Wounds

Yesterday, we wrote of our eager anticipation of Barack Obama's long-suppressed opinion on the mass slaughter in Gaza. As we all know, the most eloquent, forthright and morally concerned orator of the age kept a demure silence on this subject for weeks, because, he said, "we have only one president at a time," who alone should speak about foreign policy. Of course, that didn't keep the morally concerned orator from speaking freely on almost every other aspect of foreign policy -- Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, etc. But consistency, as they say, is the hobgoblin of small minds, and the brain of the new president -- who has set the world aflame with rhetoric that has never been heard in Washington before, soaring phrases of penetrating uniqueness about freedom, hope, peace, and the enduring greatness of the American people -- is famously large.

Anyway, we have waited, and at last Obama has spoken. Here's what he had to say today, while welcoming Hillary Clinton to the State Department and appointing Establishment grandee George Mitchell as his special envoy to the Middle East:
