Culture Wars/Current Controversies

Who’s Afraid of Naomi Wolf?

By K. Lloyd Billingsley Independent Institute

The answer to that question is progressives, politicians, the media, and feminist luminaries . . . and for all the right reasons.

“The rest of the world, at least on the progressive side in the United States, became increasingly cult-like and insular in its thinking, since March of 2020.” At that time, “lifelong critical thinkers, journalists, editors, researchers, doctors, philanthropists, teachers, psychologists—all began to repeat only talking points from MSNBC and CNN, and soon overtly refused to look at any sources—even peer-reviewed sources in medical journals—even CDC data—that contradicted those talking points.” (Emphasis in the original.)

That may sound like Tucker Carlson but—surprise(!)—it’s feminist author Naomi Wolf, in a January 9 essay headlined “Is it Time for Intellectuals to Talk about God?” In this 3,868-word cri de coeur, Wolf calls out “my people, my tribe,” all those “feminist health advocates” who were “silent in view of HHS warnings that the spike protein from mRNA vaccines may accumulate in the ovaries.”

These “luminaries of feminist health activism,” Wolf wrote, failed to speak out and “two or three of us who did were very visibly smeared, in some cases threatened, and in many ways silenced.” And this was all part of the “edifice of evil” now prevailing. As Blanche DuBois might say, this is not the feminist her readers have been expecting.
