Steven Crowder doubled down on his claims that the video wasn’t edited by sharing the raw video of the experience. We stand by our note of skepticism, but this gives us more reason to believe that it may actually be real.
In a video that went viral over the Thanksgiving weekend, conservative comedian and commentator Steven Crowder conducts a question and answer session with Amazon’s “Alexa” that shows that the artificial personal assistant is more interested in giving users her “far-left social justice warrior” opinion than straightforward facts. The video of the clearly “editorializing” responses Alexa provided to simple, direct questions resulted in a flood of conspiracy theories accusing Crowder of “faking” the whole thing. In response, on Monday Crowder posted the raw footage of the back and forth with Alexa proving that her leftist slant is no “hoax.”
The answer to the Jesus Christ question seems inaccurate based upon experiences Alexa owners have relayed to me. Other responses seem to be accurate. I’m leaving the story up but have asked the author to reach out to Crowder for an explanation of the discrepancy. On a side note, I would be very disappointed with Crowder if this was fabricated. I get it – he’s a comedian. In today’s tumultuous political atmosphere and with fake news rampant, there’s no reason to extinguish one’s credibility or tarnish a conservative voice with parody. Either he’s just a comedian or he’s going to participate in REAL political commentary. Adding a funny spin is fine as long as he’s sticking to the truth.
Steven Crowder is a conservative comedian who has a penchant for exposing liberal hypocrisies. His latest target: Amazon’s Alexa. The digital personal assistant turns out to be a leftist social justice warrior in a box.
Produced and distributed by Amazon, Alexa seems to spill the same progressive rhetoric we often read on the Washington Post. Jeff Bezos owns both.
In this video, which contains crude language and references, Crowder asks about Muhammad:
Q: Alexa, who is the prophet Muhammad?
ALEXA: The prophet Muhammad is [a] very wise prophet; he taught many people how to live. He had a wife called Aisha. He lived in Saudi Arabia. The message that he gave to the people is: “Pray to Allah; he is the only God,” and he gave the holy corn.
After some exploration into what Alexa knows about Muhammad and his bride Aisha, who he “married” when she was between 6-10 years old, Crowder asked Alexa about Jesus Christ:
Q: Okay Alexa, who is the Lord Jesus Christ?
ALEXA: Jesus Christ is a fictional character.
The video features many more interesting questions and answers, but these questions on religion are insulting and untrue. Before you go buy someone an Alexa for Christmas, consider what it wants you to believe on certain subjects. This is a liberal indoctrination device, plain and simple.
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
