Liberals worry that digital assistants are being sexually harassed

NOT THE ONION:

Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google’s Google Home peddle stereotypes of female subservience—which puts their “progressive” parent companies in a moral predicament.

People often comment on the sexism inherent in these subservient bots’ female voices, but few have considered the real-life implications of the devices’ lackluster responses to sexual harassment. By letting users verbally abuse these assistants without ramifications, their parent companies are allowing certain behavioral stereotypes to be perpetuated. Everyone has an ethical imperative to help prevent abuse, but companies producing digital female servants warrant extra scrutiny, especially if they can unintentionally reinforce their abusers’ actions as normal or acceptable.

Organizer Behind Next Women’s March is Convicted Palestinian Terrorist

Rasmea Yousef Odeh spent 10 years in prison for her part in two terrorist bombings in Israel in 1970, one of which killed two students while they were shopping. She then managed to become a U.S. citizen in 2004 by lying about her past, but she was convicted in 2014 of immigration fraud. Then she won the right to a new trial, set for this spring, by claiming she had been suffering from PTSD at the time she lied on her application. Riiight. Not only that, but she worked for a while as an ObamaCare navigator.

Anti-Semitism is the new social justice

Hating Israel is the thing to do today on university campuses. It makes you seem “progressive.” It means you’re “woke” and socially aware. It means you’re fighting against a tyrannical regime. It is supporting the struggle of an oppressed people at the hands of White colonialist supremacy. Zionism is racism. Israel is evil, end of story.

Except that’s complete nonsense.

Zionism is the support for and affirmation of the Jewish right to self-determination in their indigenous homeland of Israel. It’s the Jewish Civil Rights Movement. It is the struggle of a native people who have been oppressed for thousands of years, expelled from their land, killed and persecuted wherever in the world they went. It is the celebration of victory, of the return home after millennia of diaspora, of surviving and flourishing against all odds.
