Paul McNamara wrote in the liberal “Network World” magazine that possible republican candidate Carly Fiorina;
(Carly Fiorina)… “spewed this patently offensive nonsense in a January interview with an Iowa political blog…” Further stating … “Fiorina calls Chinese thieving automatons…
Here is Ms. Fiorina’s actual statement.
“I’ve been doing business in China for decades, and I will tell you that yeah, the Chinese can take a test, but what they can’t do is innovate,” Fiorina said. “They’re not terribly imaginative. They’re not entrepreneurial, they don’t innovate; that’s why they’re stealing our intellectual property.”
Considering what happens constantly and consistently in the international copyright and tech areas, the statement seems quite accurate and apropos. But it isn’t politically correct, even if it is true, so the liberal answer is a personal attack and claim that she referred to and insulted the Chinese Communists. To use Mr. McNamara’s liberal SJW words —
That is simply not true — that was not her statement.
Now this is not to support or denigrate this possible candidate, BUT it is an interesting example of SJW reinterpreting a statement to make it as controversial and upsetting as possible, regardless of its validity or accuracy.
