Author and feminist Naomi Wolf said she feels that President Joe Biden has personally “targeted” her as well as like-minded Americans who question vaccine mandates.
On Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today,” host Tucker Carlson remarked that Wolf is a lifelong liberal and civil libertarian who was suddenly condemned for offering a countervailing viewpoint than the rest of her political allies.
Wolf commented that Biden’s speech from September 9th threw down a gauntlet, calling for unconditional obedience from those who believe the decision of whether or not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 is a personal and private consideration, not an edict from the federal government.
“When you study the history of stripping people of their freedoms, what you see is that what happens to that marginalized, voiceless person out there that no one really values that much, is eventually going to happen to you unless you stand up,” she said.
“So he– the president for whom I voted, I feel personally kind of targeted by him. And a lot of people feel targeted by his last speech– firefighters are protesting these draconian mandates– ‘get vaccinated or lose your job’. Nurses, health care professionals are protesting. Teachers are protesting. And this is across the political spectrum.”

Wolf, who consulted on the presidential campaign of former Vice President Al Gore, expressed shock that Biden’s speech was signed off on by so many in his employ, especially considering how any presidential speech is exhaustively combed over and carefully planned before it is delivered to the American public.
“He said to us– to those of us who are unvaccinated, which is a completely personal decision, right — ‘You are costing us. We’ve run out of patience’. – He said about the governors who are trying to protect people from forced mandates, he said, ‘we’ll get rid of you, or words to that effect’.”
“American presidents don’t talk to citizens that way,” she asserted.
Wolf has been ostracized by her erstwhile allies on the left for her objection to mandates stemming from top-down government impositions on freedom in exchange for safety. She remarked that fans and supporters have written to her with concerns about the vaccine due to their own health conditions or autoimmune deficiencies that should be scientifically and medically considered when exempting someone from any vaccine.
“So what I think I’m trying to say is that where you get this kind of drive to divide vaccinated from unvaccinated, and to ‘other’ them, it starts at the top,” she said, adding that it has been more than just Biden who is condemning and socially segregating people on the basis of the vaccinated and unvaccinated, mentioning Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s, D-Mass., letter to Amazon in which she voiced concern about certain books the online retailer was selling.
She said of Biden and his allies, “silencing” is “not what we do in America.”
“That sets the tone for all this social pain and disruption that we’re seeing, where people in my former world– people whom I still love– feel comfortable telling people they’re not going to sit with them outside because they’re unvaccinated,” Wolf said.
