Former Democratic Party Icon Apologizes To Conservatives

After reviewing footage from the January 6, 2021 Capitol Riot, Naomi Wolf, a feminist author, offered a formal apology for conservatives who had “put America first.”

Wolf wrote a long post on Substack Thursday, “Peaceful Republicans as well as conservatives in general have been demonized because of the story told by Democrats under leadership of what occurred that day.”

Police say that a smirking suspect shot dead a reporter at the crime scene, then killed a 9-year-old girl minutes later.

Marjorie Taylor Greene received threatening voicemails. He left his number and full name, and threatened to sue her. He apparently wanted to be at her command.

“Republicans, conservatives, I am sorry. Wolf said that I believed in wholesale many other things that have since been proven to not be as they were by NPR, MSNBC, and the New York Times.

She added that “anyone in leadership who misrepresented the events of the day to the public so as to distort its actual history — must also face accountability.”

Wolf said that the January 6 footage was likened to Daniel Ellsberg’s publication of the Pentagon Papers. He noted that Leftists glorified the latter while condemning it.

Naomi Wolf: Who are you?

Wolf is an “lifelong liberal, civil libertarian”, and is a prominent feminist author, commentator and regular guest on Fox News Channel shows.

According to Business Insider, she was an icon of 1990’s “third wave feministism” and was once “Democratic Party insider”.

Wolf’s “impeccable” Democratic Party bonafides were questioned when Tucker Carlson, “The Beauty Myth”, interviewed Wolf in 2021. He later appeared on Steve Bannon’s “WarRoom” podcast, which the outlet also stated.

Wolf was vocal against COVID lockdowns, and related policies. In December 2022, Yale’s Yale alum led a protest against the university’s vaccination policy.

Why does she apologize now?

Wolf claims that her apology was prompted by recently released footage from the Jan 6 Capitol riot. The footage was released earlier this week by Tucker Carlson (Fox News Channel), House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.).

Both Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.N.Y.) as well as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R.Ky.), denounced the decision not to air the footage.

Wolf specifically mentions footage of Jacob Chansley, Q-Anon Shaman, and Officer Brian Sicknick in her letter. These seem to contradict the narratives Wolf previously supported.

How did Wolf’s apology get received?
Jason Whitlock tweeted, Friday, “This is quite courageous”, in response to Wolf’s apology.

“I was one of those people who were targeted and brutalized in all this horrible dishonesty. I still am,” Walkaway campaign founder Brandon Straka tweeted.

“This helps.”

Naomi Wolf wrote an amazing letter. Bravo to her. “I don’t define myself politically, but these lies affected all of us & it was years of frustration (sometimes anguish at times) watching them play out and seeing so many being deceived,” Lara Logan tweeted Friday.
