  • “Well respected feminist” author suggests ISIS beheadings were faked, other interesting theories

    I’m not sure how many of you remember Naomi Wolf, author of the once widely touted book The Beauty Myth more than twenty years ago. Thinking back, the last time I recall hearing much about her was during the 2000 election cycle. (She worked for Gore.) But apparently she’s still out and about, staying active in public policy and sharing her various opinions on social media. And some of her most recent theories are certainly… interesting. Author and former Democratic political consultant Naomi Wolf published a series of Facebook posts on Saturday in which she questioned the veracity of...

    Author and former Democratic political consultant Naomi Wolf published a series of Facebook posts on Saturday in which she questioned the veracity of the ISIS videos showing the murders and beheadings of two Americans and two Britons, strongly implying that the videos had been staged by the US government and that the victims and their parents were actors.Wolf published a separate Facebook post, also on Saturday, suggesting that the US was sending troops to West Africa not to assist with Ebola treatment but to bring Ebola back to the US to justify a military takeover of American society. She also...

    In the past few weeks, militant jihadism has won two major propaganda coups. First, Al Gore, the world's most famous critic of dirty oil, sold his "progressive network" Current Media, LLC, to the oil sheikhs of Qatar for a reported $500 million. Second, Naomi Wolf, renowned author of Vagina: A New Biography and other top feminist works, sold her soul to the same Islamist patriarchy. The price of Naomi's soul (possibly including other appendages) has not yet been named. As one wag put it, Naomi will now be the official "on-air Jihadess" of the biggest Islamist propaganda network on the...

    The Left's battle against "Zero Dark Thirty" continues, but this time the Oscar-winning director of the film is being called far worse than an apologist for "torture." A trio of senators previously critiqued the minds behind the movie, detailing the hunt for Osama bin Laden, for daring to suggested enhanced interrogation tactics helped nab the terrorist leader. Now, progressive critic Naomi Wolf is comparing Bigelow to the Nazis' premier propagandist. In a time of darkness in America, you are being feted by Hollywood, and hailed by major media. But to me, the path your career has now taken reminds of...

    Your humble correspondent is so fascinated by his own navel that he spends hours each day just staring at it. In fact, I am so absorbed by that body part that I am planning on writing a biography about it called "Belly Button: A New Biography." Should you think that I am over the top in narcissistic self-absorbtion, that is nothing compared to the book that former Al Gore "alpha male" consultant, Naomi Wolf, has written. I shall put the title of her about to be released book under the fold to give you the opportunity to put your coffee...

    According to, “feminism” is defined as: 1. the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men. 2. (sometimes initial capital letter) an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women. Reading this, one can almost hear Helen Reddy singing out the strains of “I am woman, hear me roar.” Insofar as the concept of feminism is concerned, I can’t seriously believe that anyone, male or female, living in present-day America can argue with feminism’s goals. Equality and justice (together with life) are the cornerstones of our country’s founding; indeed, all...

    It would be so nice if inner beauty triumphed over outer appearance. But men are designed to care about packaging. It's time to accept the not-so-pretty facts about looks. There are certain practical realities of existence that most of us accept. If you want to catch a bear, you don't load the trap with a copy of Catch-22—not unless you rub it with a considerable quantity of raw hamburger. If you want to snag a fish, you can't just slap the water with your hand and yell, "Jump on my hook, already!" Yet, if you're a woman who wants to...

    Only an overcaffeinated tea-partier would believe that America is on the path from "an open society into dictatorship," right? Who could think that there are 10 simple steps to establishing a police state and "that each of these 10 steps has already been initiated today in the United States"? As you might have gathered, these aren't the words of an unhinged right-winger, but an unhinged left-winger: Naomi Wolf, author of the perfervid 2007 book "The End of America." Wolf detected a "fascist shift" in the country, and got some respectful notices (Library Journal: "compellingly and cogently argued"). While a New...

    No, the debate between Naomi Wolf and Phyllis Chesler isn't dead yet. Quick link summary for those just jumping in: On August 31 Phyllis Chesler wrote a piece at Pajamas Media challenging an article Naomi Wolf wrote about veiled Muslim women for the Sydney Morning Herald. Jamie Glazov, FrontPage's managing editor and a blogger for NewsReal, wrote a post in support of Chesler here. Wolf didn't care for either Chesler or Glazov's characterizations of her position. She left a comment demanding that David Horowitz, NewsReal's Editor-In-Chief, remove Glazov's blog. She also contacted Chesler. Glazov had an additional rebuttal here, Horowitz...

    Naomi Wolf is going back to her roots. The journalist and author, who has seemingly been on a break for the past couple of years from writing books on the kinds of feminist themes that made her famous in the early 1990s, has signed on with the Ecco Press for a project tentatively titled A Cultural History of the Vagina. Ms. Wolf was represented by lit agent John Brockman. Neither was not available for comment. In her last three books—one a memoir about her father, the other two polemics on American politics—the author has departed from the area of expertise...

    Over at JihadWatch, the remarkable Robert Spencer brings a potent contribution to the debate about the veil in the Muslim world as only he can. Discussing the recent Salon article which defended Wolf, Spencer writes: Clark-Flory goes on to excoriate Chesler, Horowitz and Glazov for their assorted sins against multiculturalist orthodoxy, and then concludes: You might notice that as this conflagration spreads, more and more conservatives -- many of whom do not identify as feminists -- are rushing in to stoke the fire. As they do, the discussion becomes less about defending women's rights and more about supporting their ongoing...

    Two real feminist bloggers have weighed in on the ongoing Phyllis Chesler-Naomi Wolf feud over Wolf's apparent apologetic for the burqa and Islamic gender apartheid which NewsReal stumbled into the middle of yesterday morning when Jamie Glazov wrote a post supporting Chesler. (Quick back story: Wolf responded by demanding that David Horowitz, NewsReal's Editor-In-Chief, remove Glazov's post. Glazov wrote a knock-out rebuttal here and Chesler wrote her own post supporting it and expanding the debate. And now Horowitz has weighed in here -- as I very much hoped he would.)

    I’ve been following the Newsreal debate between Phyllis Chesler and Jamie Glazov on the one hand and Naomi Wolf, who thinks America, the most “liberated” country on the face of the earth by any — any— progressive standard (treatment of minorities, of women, of the poor, freedom of the individual), is a prot0-fascist state and needs a revolution, while the Islamo-fascist enemy, the greatest oppressor of women and minorities ever, needs a wrist slap. Wolf’s moral blindness is just a one minor instance of the general moral vacuity of progressives which for a hundred years has put them on...

    Naomi Wolf is “simply appalled” at my “misrepresentation” of her disposition toward Muslim veiling on my recent NewsReal blog. She has asked my boss, David Horowitz, to “remove this falsehood from your site and correct the record.” She has also made similar demands of Phyllis Chesler, who has also touched on Wolf’s totalitarian odyssey in a recent Pajamas Media piece. Wolf insists that she does not find the burqa “sexy” and that she does not wish to institutionalize it, even though her recent piece in the Sydney Morning Herald, is entitled Behind the Veil Lives a Thriving Muslim Sexuality and...

    Women in chadors are really feminist ninja warriors. Rather than allow themselves to be gawked at by male strangers, they choose to defeat the “male gaze” by hiding from it in plain view. But don’t you worry: Beneath that chador, abaya, burqa, or veil, there is a sexy courtesan wearing “Victoria Secret, elegant fashion, and skin care lotion,” just waiting for her husband to come home for a night of wild and sensuous marital lovemaking. Obviously, these are not my ideas. I am quoting from a piece by Naomi Wolf that appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald a few days...

    Hearings are under way in the United States Senate to assess what to do with the 240 detainees still behind bars at Guantanamo Bay, and what will become of the military tribunals and detention without trial that the Bush administration and a compliant Congress put into place. The US Congress is also debating what will happen to the detention camp itself, which was established in 2002 to house men who were allegedly “the worst of the worst,” in a setting deliberately framed by Bush attorneys as “legal outer space.” But are those Senate hearings actually window dressing on a new...

    It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious. A few days ago, Jong, the author and self-described feminist, gave an interview to the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the choicest bits of which were brought to my attention by the reliably sharp-eyed Christian Rocca, the U.S. correspondent of Il Foglio, who published excerpts on his Camillo blog. Basically, Jong says her fear that Obama might lose the election has developed into an "obsession. A paralyzing terror. An anxious fever that keeps you awake at night." She...

She deplores the civic illiteracy among young people that leaves them feeling ”depressed, cynical and powerless.” And she blames influences on both left and right: the Bush administration’s portrayal of “freedom and checks and balances as threats to national security,” of course, and also the No Child Left Behind Act’s emphasis on math and reading rather than civics...

But these days, liberals have a virtual monopoly on loony ideas -- and they seem to be getting crazier all the time.

    Hillary Clinton is right to warn that a new terrorist attack on the US would help Republicans. Fear and trumped-up threats can be used to gain power. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is getting a pounding, from liberal blogs and her Democratic rivals for the presidency, because she had the temerity to warn voters that a possible terrorist attack before the election might strengthen the Republicans' hand. Chris Dodd called the comment "tasteless" and liberal bloggers are savaging her for, in their view, caving to the Republican framing of the terror issue. These critics are being extraordinarily historically naive. If...

    Wolf first made a name for herself with "The Beauty Myth," a 1991 feminist critique of feminine stereotypes. Admired by some and ridiculed by others, Wolf has since written on everything from motherhood to promiscuity. During the 2000 election campaign, she famously advised Al Gore to work on being an "alpha male," and her most recent book, a folksy memoir about her father, left many erstwhile fans clearing their throats in embarrassment. Maybe that's what pushed Wolf toward Jesus. In an interview published last weekend in Scotland's Glasgow Sunday Herald, Wolf announced that she had been struggling with a midlife...

    We Americans are like recovering addicts after a four-year bender Bush made his white constituency feel good about themselves, but no longer. Citizens are rediscovering democracy Naomi Wolf Monday November 7, 2005 The Guardian In the US comic strip, Peanuts, there is a little boy who is always followed by a cloud of dust. Wherever he goes, his cloud follows him. George Bush can't shake his personal cloud. The until recently eerily untouchable president has now lost his mojo. The man to whom the entire US press corps has been on its knees for four years is finally in the...

    Edward Klein's new book, ''The Truth About Hillary,'' is not a biography, to be evaluated in terms of how well or poorly it relates to real events or a real person; it is something much more revealing -- a kind of cultural dreamwork, like that in 18th-century penny ballads that linked real political figures to folklore, giving them supernatural traits. In the stories that Klein tells, we can clearly see the collective unconscious of our culture at work, throwing up vivid, even lurid fantasies that emerge out of the shifting balance of power between women and men.
  • NEW ATTITUDE (Naomi Wolf to Divorce NY Times Editor?)

    DON'T be surprised if the New York Times Op-Ed page breaks with its knee-jerk feminist posture and shows some sympathy for men who are bankrupted in divorce court. Sources say David Shipley, who edits the opinion page, has split from his wife, Naomi Wolf, the feminist author of "The Beauty Myth," and mother of two. Neither Shipley nor Wolf returned repeated calls. The Times told us, "We never comment on personal matters." The separation could blemish the perfect image of well-groomed Wolf, who famously advised Al Gore to wear earth tones during his 2000 presidential campaign

    Targeted, Truthful Ads Gutting Kerry Campaign Written by Chris Long Monday, September 27, 2004 George W. Bush spent the first months of the political campaigning season like a boxer in a huddle, covering up and weathering a barrage of blows from the upstart. The Kerry/DNC ads were a scattershot affair, alleging anything and everything, flitting from accusation to spectacular accusation, not unlike the flip-flopping candidate. Indeed, the Bush campaign seemed to obeying the military axiom of ‘concentration of forces’: gather your troops for decisive blows in the face of a scattered, approaching enemy. The hundreds of millions of dollars expended...

    It takes feminist author (and former Al Gore grooming consultant) Naomi Wolf to see a sinister conspiracy behind the narrowing of the gender gap. "What happened?" she asks apropos the gender gap in the latest issue of New York magazine. "Karen Hughes," she answers. "The true genius behind the Bush success is not Karl Rove; she’s a suburban working mom in sensible shoes. It was clear from the start that Team Bush realized that the old, white, male face of the Republican Party was a recipe for losing those crucial suburban women in the swing states who are socially progressive...

    THE jury was out for a while, but Teresa Heinz Kerry has been declared a resounding liability by women.In a scathing attack, the feminist writer Naomi Wolf claims the exotic ketchup heiress is having an emasculating effect on John Kerry, her second husband. “Listen to what the Republicans are hitting Kerry with: Indecisive. Effete. French. They are all but calling this tall, accomplished war hero gay,” she writes in New York magazine. * Wolf, who advised Al Gore on capturing the women’s vote in 2000, blames Heinz Kerry for making the charge stick. “Let’s start with ‘Heinz’. There is no...

    Misconceptions Truth, Lies, and the Unexpected on the Journey to Motherhood by Naomi Wolf Doubleday, 326 pp., $24.95 NOW THAT A REAL WAR has been engaged and an ideological truce declared on the home front, it is generally agreed that our criticism should be reserved for certain groups only--particularly those that advocate violence, promulgate stereotypes, and espouse hatred. This makes it an especially opportune time to check in on contemporary feminism, where a parable of sorts can be found in the twists and turns taken lately by one of its more popular practitioners. Six years ago, Naomi Wolf--author of such ...

    I just watched the repeat of a Dennis Miller show from earlier this week. DM interviewed Rudy Giuliani and did his usual commentary. Giuliani made the point about the Patriot Act being a worthwhile tool for a country at war. But what has really motivated me to post, before I go to bed was the "Varsity" chat time Dennis had with three guests. The guests were former San Fran mayor Willie Brown, Al Gore fashion consultant Naomi Wolf (called a 'social critic'), and conservative author David Horowitz. After a discussion of the New Hampshire primary, the discussion turned to the...
