Video: Naomi Wolf, serious commentator

posted at 8:45 pm on December 10, 2007 by Allahpundit

Via SLC, a little something for your mental file on her for the next time she turns up on O’Reilly or MSNBC smiling beatifically while pronouncing the end of the American experiment. Searching for an analogy in his last post about her, Bryan came up with the Loose Change boys. Little did he know.

WTF…..
The only thing she smelt was the crap oozing out of her
cranial cavity!

dmann on December 10, 2007 at 8:51 PM

Little did he know.

Indeed. But I had every reason to suspect.

Bryan on December 10, 2007 at 8:52 PM

Is it okay to have questions about her sanity or her intentions, I mean, they are just questions…

Neo on December 10, 2007 at 8:55 PM

What an idiotette.

Patrick S on December 10, 2007 at 8:59 PM

People like her are the reason I hated working customer service.

MirCat on December 10, 2007 at 8:59 PM

And by the way, in case there was ever any doubt–this clip proves that Naomi Wolf is as dumb as a bag of hammers.

Bryan on December 10, 2007 at 9:00 PM

I saw her being interviewed a couple of weeks ago and she proved beyond any doubt that BDS run strong in her. She doesn’t have an opinion on 9/11 so she is free to pursue the truth.

jmarcure on December 10, 2007 at 9:01 PM

I wanna protest outside her house.

Califemme on December 10, 2007 at 9:03 PM

And by the way, in case there was ever any doubt–this clip proves that Naomi Wolf is as dumb as a bag of hammers.

Bryan on December 10, 2007 at 9:00 PM

But a bag of hammers has some use.

jmarcure on December 10, 2007 at 9:03 PM

There is no question in my mind, this woman is a complete idiot…

d1carter on December 10, 2007 at 9:04 PM

She was in Lockerbie when the plane blew up, and she stayed in New York City after the World Trade Center was blown up.

DUH! Isn’t it obvious? This babe was SENT as a covert agent by George Bush to CONFIRM that his plot to increase global warming with body chunks and toxic air had really been carried out by his empire-building minions.

RushBaby on December 10, 2007 at 9:06 PM

It’s bad to have an untouchable are in a Democracy”

I have an untouchable area. I’m so bad.

ronsfi on December 10, 2007 at 9:09 PM

Who the hell is Naomi Wolf? Did she start the Cuban Missile Crisis or something? That damn new-math is screwin’ me up, man!

robblefarian on December 10, 2007 at 9:13 PM

Knew she was a BDSer but didn’t know she was just so stupid.

Wanted to slap that whiny interrupting lib at the beginning too. Did you want your question actually answered, or…?

inviolet on December 10, 2007 at 9:15 PM

It’s ok, Naomi. Al’s still wearing a brown suit.

BacaDog on December 10, 2007 at 9:16 PM

Late at night when all is quiet and Naomi is all alone, I wonder if she thinks about the therapy she needs?

d1carter on December 10, 2007 at 9:16 PM

After 40 seconds I had to turn it off and take a shower.

Hilts on December 10, 2007 at 9:21 PM

She was in Lockerbie….

RushBaby on December 10,2007 at 9:06PM

RushBaby: I’m with ya man,standing on the edge,
make that connection to TWA-800,and
were on a roll,hahaha

canopfor on December 10, 2007 at 9:23 PM

I love when people clap for themselves after they give a “speech.”

askheaves on December 10, 2007 at 9:27 PM

As a mom, she could smell that 9/11 was an inside job? Oh brother. These left wing wackos get nuttier by the day.

SoulGlo on December 10, 2007 at 9:27 PM

Heh, she “read” that 2 days after 9/11 they were shipping the “molten metal” to China… Oh, does she mean the metal that Rosie O said couldn’t be melted?!!!
Shipping it to China, yep sure.
Who the hell is this idiot? I’ve never heard of her till today. Have I just been lucky, or is she fairly new on the scene??

4shoes on December 10, 2007 at 9:29 PM

Hammers, the world over, are indignant.

Entelechy on December 10, 2007 at 9:31 PM

Naomi Wolf, via Wiki, had her break in feminist/progressive writing in 1991 and has been an ass-pain ever since.

4shoes, you’ve just been lucky.

askheaves on December 10, 2007 at 9:33 PM

OMG. Does she really think we live in a tyranny? Where do they find these nut jobs?

4shoes on December 10, 2007 at 9:34 PM

When the Bush 43 era is over, I’ll miss one thing for sure, the BDS nuttiness.

Entelechy on December 10, 2007 at 9:35 PM

Well askheaves, it looks like it’s just run out. Damn.

4shoes on December 10, 2007 at 9:35 PM

When the Bush 43 era is over, I’ll miss one thing for sure, the BDS nuttiness.

Entelechy on December 10, 2007 at 9:35 PM

They’ll find something else to DS about, you can bet your butt on that!

4shoes on December 10, 2007 at 9:38 PM

Ya know, I’m kind of regretting my snarky comment above. I got to thinking I should really pity someone as consumed with paranoia and obsession as Naomi Wolf. I mean, what would life be like in her shoes?

Q (neighbor): Good morning, Naomi! How do you like the weather today?
A: Well, after 9/11, the air has never been the same here in New York city…

Q (pediatrician): Nice to see you again, Ms. Wolf. How’s little Joey’s asthma today?
A: Well, doctor, ever since 9/11, Joey’s been on a slow road to death…

Q (publisher): Naomi, call me back! We need to discuss your next book project.
A: Well, ever after 9/11 it’s been dangerous to ask questions. Can you just send it to me in an email?

I mean really. What kind of life must the poor tortured soul be living.

RushBaby on December 10, 2007 at 9:38 PM

Doesn’t the hotness rule apply here?

MadisonConservative on December 10, 2007 at 9:38 PM

She knows this just like she knew 150,000 women die per year of eating disorders. I mean, that’s like 50 9/11s every year.
She knows stuff, people. Stand against tyranny with her.

MayBee on December 10, 2007 at 9:41 PM

Not sure I want to know “I was there upfront” during the Clinton years. Geez, what a maroon.

Drum on December 10, 2007 at 9:52 PM

Doesn’t the hotness rule apply here?

You mean that because she’s not hot she’s not even worth watching with the sound turned off? Yeah, I’ll remember that next time.

I have to confess, I bought her book.

Drum on December 10, 2007 at 9:54 PM

She has been everywhere. Maybe questions were being asked of the wrong people, just maybe.

mjkazee on December 10, 2007 at 9:56 PM

Doesn’t the hotness rule apply here?

MadisonConservative on December 10, 2007 at 9:38 PM

No way. She’d have to be incandescently hot to overcome the immorality and hatefulness of flirting with trooferism. She wasn’t all that impressive even in her prime (I personally don’t dig talky, bookish chicks). Plus, she’s like 45 years old.

Travis Bickle on December 10, 2007 at 9:58 PM

You know, the bottom line is all women really want a man. Naomi and Rosie included. They can spout all they want about feminism and all that crap, but they really just want a good man, who will treat them right. This naomi chic has already got a man (at least I am assuming that is how she birthed a baby, God help the little fellow), so now she has to yak about her kid’s asthma. BORING!!!!!! Honey, we don’t give a crap! Take care of your kid and spare us the boring details. GET A LIFE. PLEASE.

bloggless on December 10, 2007 at 10:01 PM

“They have their flaws”

Hahahahaha

The only truth she spoke…

ProudPatriot on December 10, 2007 at 10:03 PM

What the heck was she talking about?

reine.de.tout on December 10, 2007 at 10:11 PM

“I don’t have a position on 9/11.”
This is where she should get the bum’s rush. (Well, maybe if she was in that bar in “It’s A Wonderful Life.”)

“Millions of people rising together ?
to confront tyranny?
are a force… that is unstoppable
as long as we’ve got these vestiges of democracy.
So go out and lead the way.”

Someone who ends their phrases like questions isn’t really confident or sure.
This sounds stupid, but it’s really just run of the mill for any blue college town of significance

silverfox on December 10, 2007 at 10:12 PM

“An inside job? How dare you. How dare you. It was not an inside job. [Ms. Wolf,] you have got to be careful, you’re going to give [moonbats] a bad reputation.”

aunursa on December 10, 2007 at 10:22 PM

Far more intelligence and research and went into the production of the hammers in that bag than into her entire “End of America” thesis.

Just as bad, almost everyone in that audience will vote.

eeyore on December 10, 2007 at 10:26 PM

I have to confess, I bought her book.

Drum on December 10, 2007 at 9:54 PM

Should have borrowed it from the library. Why reward her efforts?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on December 10, 2007 at 10:27 PM

Stand up against tyranny? Ha!

And she could “smell” something was wrong in the air?

Hey, Naomi, here’s a hint– if you think the air is bad, move the freak out of NYC.

Interesting how the “air was bad” for weeks. I’d love to discuss the concentrations of airborne particles in an “infinite volume” condition with her.

Nethicus on December 10, 2007 at 10:34 PM

She’s not sure that the US staged the Boxer rebellion in China? Well how can we believe anything she says then?

BL@KBIRD on December 10, 2007 at 10:36 PM

Wow. And it actually seemed like she was holding back….

Eyes…just a little too bright in that one

Wind Rider on December 10, 2007 at 10:41 PM

Camile Paglia used to rake Wolf over the coals for being paranoid,ignorent and a prime example of modern academia run amok.

I used to think she was being too harsh…

Rob Taylor on December 10, 2007 at 10:47 PM

The Clintons are just like us… whoa… in the future, when your selling crazy, please speak for yourself.

christophercube on December 10, 2007 at 10:49 PM

Video: Naomi Wolf, serious commentator

Did y’all clear that with Hewitt first?

And by the way, in case there was ever any doubt–this clip proves that Naomi Wolf is as dumb as a bag of hammers.

Bryan on December 10, 2007 at 9:00 PM

We’re offended by the comparison to Naomi Wolf.

Sincerely,

A Bag of Hammers

thirteen28 on December 10, 2007 at 10:56 PM

Gee, tough audience those twelve people.

She goes on with the old “just asking questions” stuff. But what are your questions? I hate hearing people go on and on about the rules of discussion, instead of discussing the issue to be discussed.

Tzetzes on December 10, 2007 at 11:01 PM

Naomi Wolf
Flow Imoan – because she’s ass backwards.

Kini on December 10, 2007 at 11:14 PM

Naomi Wolf gives new depth and breadth to the word “imbecilic.”

MikeHu on December 10, 2007 at 11:23 PM

Molten metal to China?

WTF????……..

The Ugly American on December 10, 2007 at 11:29 PM

The worst thing about this whole embarassment is that, while she complains about America sliding into tyranny, she bitches about the Clintons having to make “horrible compromises” to get things done. Yes, things would be so much better if we all just did what the Clintons told us.

Also, she played the “mom card” really fast.

Squid Vicious on December 10, 2007 at 11:38 PM

What’s disturbing is that she is considered an intellectual. This is what the Ivy League is producing?

peacenprosperity on December 10, 2007 at 11:41 PM

The Boxer Rebellion is part of American history? Is she confusing America with China?

p40tiger on December 11, 2007 at 12:07 AM

As a victim of sexual harassment, you would think Wolf wouldn’t have thought Clinton was so very very nice.

MayBee on December 11, 2007 at 12:19 AM

Where and what does she teach? Let’s get a cadre of retired conservatives to audit her classes and challenge everything she says.

Zach on December 11, 2007 at 12:54 AM

This sounds like a really bad mandatory Human Resources indoctrination meeting that employees MUST attend. All that “feeling” and “working together” crap. *YAWN*

Did anyone notice how unattractive that audience was? Really, what is it with liberals being so, errr, ugly?

SouthernGent on December 11, 2007 at 1:39 AM

I think she’s hot, in a crazy, paranoid, stupid-as-a-bag-of-hammers kind of way.

km on December 11, 2007 at 1:40 AM

Did anyone notice how unattractive that audience was?

SouthernGent on December 11, 2007 at 1:39 AM

No, sure didn’t. I thought those people could be my own neighbors, and how sad it is that everyday Americans can be so confused regarding priorities that they would spend even one minute in the same room with the likes of Naomi Wolf.

RushBaby on December 11, 2007 at 2:06 AM

The Brain Myth

saint kansas on December 11, 2007 at 5:22 AM

It’s all clear to me now. If we had simply cordoned off the entire city of New York, and hadn’t “blocked Clinton’s intelligence,” or shipped all that “molten metal” to Staten Island China, and things would be s-o-o-o-o much better.

Nichevo on December 11, 2007 at 6:26 AM

Um….this was an SNL skit, right?

oakpack on December 11, 2007 at 6:32 AM

If I ever needed a brain transplant, I’d want hers.

She hasn’t used it yet.

Corky on December 11, 2007 at 7:40 AM

No, sure didn’t. I thought those people could be my own neighbors, and how sad it is that everyday Americans can be so confused regarding priorities that they would spend even one minute in the same room with the likes of Naomi Wolf.

RushBaby on December 11, 2007 at 2:06 AM

And they vote.

Oldnuke on December 11, 2007 at 7:45 AM

peacenprosperity on December 10, 2007 at 11:41 PM

By other intellectuals that spend an inordinate amount of time and energy telling everyone how much smarter they are than the rest of us.

jmarcure on December 11, 2007 at 7:55 AM

In my younger days when I was a tad more naive and idealistic I mused on the fact that whenever there was a coup and a relatively free government was replaced by a dictatorship one of the first things they did was round up all the liberal intelligentsia and either kill them outright or stick them in prison forever. Back then I thought that it was because their ideas were dangerous to the dictator. Now, after much deliberation, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s actually because they’re no longer useful and they’re irritating. This clip just reinforces that notion.

It really makes me wonder why so many intellectuals support communism. What I really think they support is the utopian idea of communism rather than the historical fact of it. It makes me think they may not be very bright after all or maybe blinded by their own brilliance.

jmarcure on December 11, 2007 at 9:33 AM

What a dizzy yenta. She is made for the idiots at The View.
The hand wringers in the room are not much better.

RobCon on December 11, 2007 at 10:06 AM

She knows this just like she knew 150,000 women die per year of eating disorders. I mean, that’s like 50 9/11s every year.
She knows stuff, people. Stand against tyranny with her.

That was proved wrong ages ago. But thanks for reminding us what a wack job she is.

jmarcure on December 11, 2007 at 9:33 AM

Yep, I could understand it if it were mentally challenged or downright nasty, power hungry individuals who were touting communism., but for a so called intellect, and they’re always libs, the ones who are always screaming in your face about human rights. They must have missed or slept through their history classes, hell I don’t remember much from mine, but I’ve managed to get the gist, communism doesn’t work. Period. Never has, never will, unless we have a robot in power that’s been programmed to run things according to the perfect utopian ideals.

4shoes on December 11, 2007 at 10:33 AM

You just know it’s going to be bad within the first few seconds, when that nice lady in the audience makes the claim that the mean old Republicans were always ‘throwing stuff at Bill’. Then Naomi makes the claim that the Clintons are ‘nice people’. Two statements that should serve as a warning that you are about to enter crazy land.

Defense Guy on December 11, 2007 at 10:34 AM

Remember we’re talking about people who actually believe that if you pass a law making something illegal that whatever it is will disappear off the face of the earth. They exist, I can’t bring myself to say live, in fantasy land.

Oldnuke on December 11, 2007 at 10:37 AM

What da hell was she saying??? She is like a little child placed in front of a blackboard and given a piece of chalk. All over the place; that’s what happens.

oldelpasoan on December 11, 2007 at 11:16 AM

Yep, I could understand it if it were mentally challenged or downright nasty, power hungry individuals who were touting communism.

Who says they ain’t?

ScottG on December 11, 2007 at 11:43 AM

oldelpasoan on December 11, 2007 at 11:16 AM

A little child in front of a chalkboard is innocent and sort of cute. She’s just lame and her diatribe is stupid. Maybe it’s just me cause I have to admit I don’t really understand what she was trying to get across. That must be it, I’m just too stupid to comprehend the subtle undertones, nuances and meaning of her chaotic verbalization. Oh! And don’t forget America is evil and everything is Bushitlercheney’s fault, and the Clintons are nice people. Fire won’t melt steel either.

Oldnuke on December 11, 2007 at 11:55 AM

Naomi say’s: we can’t have untouchables in a Democracy.
You mean stuff like black racism, immigration by lawbreakers, fixing Social Security, Islamic death cult and the myriad of other problems that are, well, untouchable in American politics. Wait, thats just for us uneducated, knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, gun nuts in flyover country.

deadbackpacker on December 11, 2007 at 12:06 PM

Camile Paglia used to rake Wolf over the coals for being paranoid,ignorent and a prime example of modern academia run amok.

I used to think she was being too harsh…

Paid any attention to Paglia the last few years or so? She’s gotten BDS herself and self-medicates it by drinkning Edwards’s and Hillary’s kool-aid.

Sad, really.

Kensington on December 11, 2007 at 12:16 PM

This naomi chic has already got a man (at least I am assuming that is how she birthed a baby, God help the little fellow), so now she has to yak about her kid’s asthma.

Naomi referred to herself as a “single mom” when she was on Michael Medved’s radio show a couple of weeks ago peddling teh crazy.

Kensington on December 11, 2007 at 12:27 PM

Unlike Travis, I like bookish and talky ladies.

Mind you, in MY world bookish means having actually learned things from books, as opposed to having lots of books for self-esteem purposes like Ms. Wolf.

Also, in my world, intellectual means “thinking about the world, principles and ideas” as opposed to Ms. Wolf’s intellectualism, which seems to mean “learning a few big words, trying hard not to correlate ideas to reality, and dissolving my brain nightly in a vat of acid.”

Merovign on December 11, 2007 at 1:00 PM

Outside the Box? The Box = Sanity.

Jim Treacher on December 11, 2007 at 2:24 PM

Get back in the box, please.

btw, NYC 9/11 was not a “crime scene” it was a war zone.
