Former Clinton advisor Naomi Wolf issued a formal apology to conservatives following the broadcast of never-before-seen January 6 footage by Tucker Carlson.
Wolf, a feminist journalist and Covid-19 skeptic who was once praised by Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan around the same time she helped President Bill Clinton reach female voters during his 1996 reelection campaign, has repudiated the left wing narrative of January 6 in an open apology to conservatives published via Substack.
“I was duped,” wrote Wolf, and “as a result I made mistakes in judgement,” which “hurt millions of other people” in “existential ways.”
She summarized, “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.”
Then, Wolf directly credited the footage aired by Carlson – which showed Capitol police officers appear to peacefully escort the so-called QAnon Shaman through the halls of Congress – and summarized how the video disproved the left’s claims about January 6, 2021:
There is no way for anyone thoughtful, even if he or she is a lifelong Democrat, not to notice that Sen Chuck Schumer did not say to the world that the footage that Mr Carlson aired was not real. Rather, he warned that it was “shameful” for Fox to allow us to see it. The Guardian characterized Mr Carlson’s and Fox News’ sin, weirdly, as “Over-Use” of Jan 6 footage. Isn’t the press supposed to want full transparency for all public interest events? How can you “over-use” real footage of events of national relevance?
Wolf concluded, “Peaceful Republicans and conservatives as a whole have been demonized by the story told by Democrats in leadership of what happened that day,” meaning “half of the country has been tarred by association, and is now in many quarters presumed to consist of chaotic berserkers, anti-democratic rabble, and violent upstarts, whose sole goal is the murder of our democracy.”
“Republicans, conservatives, I am sorry.” She added, “I am sorry the nation was damaged by so much untruth issued by those with whom I identified at the time.”
“I am sorry I believed so much nonsense.”
Wolf was once considered red meat for conservative when she admitted to fundamentally misrepresenting Victorian England’s supposed criminalization of homosexuality after a disastrous radio interview.
More recently, fact checkers have repeatedly accused Wolf of spreading false information about Covid-19.

“Any man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart, and any man over thirty who is not a conservative has no brains.” Winston Churchill welcomes ewe to wisdom, Wolf !

I thought that was brilliant when I first read it and it still stands. Wish we could broadcast it everywhere.

Tucker has simply confirmed what we already knew. The real question is WHEN will Pelosi be indicted for being behind the 1/6 event and then using taxpayer money to run hearings to cover it up? Now looks like Schumer may have been involved also.

A heavy duty Leftist really gets WOKE as in Awakens to the TRUTH and owns up! Very Good!

Apparently, the Jan 6th videos should be required viewing for all gullible democrats. Hey, this chick is proof that seeing those video clips vs. democrat propaganda brings truth to the forefront.

Kudos to this lady for admitting that she was duped. It takes courage to do that. Yet we have some RINO swmap creatures like Lyndsey Graham who still think that conservatives took part in a “insurection”. But I don’t see any of these RINO slugs condemning the “summer of love” where the Democrat sycophants burned down cities and businesses.

So a few enlightened individuals realize “suddenly” that the entire J6 thing was manufactured? Seriously? She didn’t have a clue before yesterday? No problem though as it is guaranteed Biden will garner at least 100 million votes this coming election. 82 million was nothing compared to the massive cheating they’re concocting this time around.

You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free. God told us the Truth long ago and we shall ovecome the deceit and lies of the past years from the current holders of illegal power.

Naomi Wolf is a liberal, not a leftist. She has consistent values not team loyalty. God bless her. I’m afraid she is one of a dying breed.
