Feminist, HuffPo Blogger Naomi Wolf Joining Al Jazeera
Political consultant, feminist, and Huffington Post blogger Naomi Wolf is in talks to join Al Jazeera, the Qatari-owned news network that purchased Al Gore’s cable network, Current TV.
Responding to inquiries, Wolf said the talks are “extremely informal and very, very preliminary.”
Wolf currently writes for both the Huffington Post and the UK Guardian and has already scaled back her work the British newspaper. Huffington Post has areported that Wolf will be ending her association with the Internet site though no terms were announced.
Naomi Wolf has a long history of feminist activism authoring such books such as The Beauty Myth and Promiscuities but she also has a history of consulting for Democrats such as Al Gore. It was during Gore’s 2000 campaign when Wolf famously advised the Democrat nominee to wear “earth tones” in order to appeal to women.
In 2011, Wolf absurdly claimed that arrests of Occupy Wall Street lawbreakers was some sort of conspiracy planned and executed by the federal government and the nation’s mayors eager to stamp out freedom of speech.
More recently Wolf compared the makers of the film “Zero Dark Thirty” to Nazi propagandists like Leni Riefenstahl.
Of the possibility of working with Al Jazeera, Wolf said she was thrilled. “As an American who cares about civil liberties, it’s good for all of us that the Guardian and Al Jazeera are doing the work they’re doing,” she said. “It is good for civil society in America.”
Curiously, the Muslim world that Al Jazeera reports on and from whence it comes specializes in eliminating civil liberties.
But here is the thing: any American of any political ideology that goes to work for Al Jazeera should be considered a traitor. Al Jazeera is run by enemies to both our country and to the western way of life. Al Jazeera is run by racists, jihadi, terrorists and anyone that joins them should be treated as complicit in that goal.

Most Americans are under the mistaken assumption that we as voters can elect someone to make changes in our government.
U.S. Representative Judy Biggert (R, Hinsdale, IL) introduced legislation last week intended to prevent misuse of federal housing counseling funds.
In 2008, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) was smeared as a Klansman by his opponent. That didn’t stop Cohen for dusting off the smear this past week — along with namedropping Kristallnacht — against the Tea Partiers.
