There are two kinds of Democrats. The Liberal Democrats I grew up with who were wrong on the majority of their point’s of view from my perspective, but that’s because I was raised a Conservative Republican. Then there is the modern Radical Democrat. These are the Democrats we confront everyday in verbal and policy battles daily at this period of history. The cancel culture, the sit down, shut up, we will tell you what is right and what is wrong, there will be no debate, that is the modern Democrat.
Class acts like Naomi Wolf are what’s left of a rare breed. A Democrat, one of the nations leading feminists, when women were actually women. A political advisor to both Bill Clinton and Al Gore. She has written for multiple leftwing outfits; The Nation, The New Republic, The Guardian, and The Huffington Post.
She has been interviewed by the proprietor of this web site, David Vance an interview well worth the watch. Still needless to say, Ms. Wolf and I’s politics are complete polar opposites. I am a Catholic, constitutional conservative, set firmly and comfortably in my ways. Just as Ms. Wolf is in hers.
I wish Ms. Wolf’s style of Democrat was still the norm. She stands for what she believes and unlike the Democrats of today she will debate you, trying to convince you why she is right, and your views on the topic are wrong. That deserves respect. As does the following:
Admitting when you were wrong and actually stating it proudly with her reasons why. This is what is missing from our modern discourse. This type of honesty on both sides is missing. It is where we need to get back to to heal our nation.
Thank you Ms. Wolf for being a Woman, a Democrat of Integrity.
Please read the following, and see what class looks like.
Outspoken with Dr Naomi Wolf
Dear Conservatives, I Apologize
My “Team” was Taken in By Full-Spectrum Propaganda
Dr Naomi Wolf Mar 9
There is no way to avoid this moment. The formal letter of apology. From me. To Conservatives and to those who “put America first” everywhere.
It’s tempting to sweep this confrontation with my own gullibility under the rug — to “move on” without ever acknowledging that I was duped, and that as a result I made mistakes in judgement, and that these mistakes, multiplied by the tens of thousands and millions on the part of people just like me, hurt millions of other people like you all, in existential ways.
But that erasure of personal and public history would be wrong.
I owe you a full-throated apology.
I believed a farrago of lies. And, as a result of these lies, and my credulity — and the credulity of people similarly situated to me – many conservatives’ reputations are being tarnished, on false bases.
The proximate cause of this letter of apology is the airing, two nights ago, of excepts from tens of thousands of hours of security camera footage from the United States Capitol taken on Jan 6, 2021. The footage was released by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson [https://www.axios.com/2023/03/08/mccarthy-defends-jan-6-footage-tucker-carlson-fox-news].
While “fact-checkers” state that it is “misinformation” to claim that Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi was in charge of Capitol Police on that day [https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2021/07/27/fact-check-nancy-pelosi-isnt-in-charge-capitol-police/8082088002/], the fact is that the USCP is under the oversight of Congress, according to — the United States Capitol Police: [https://www.uscp.gov/the-department/oversight].
