Anti-Semites are Using a Popular Chat App to Compile a List of Jewish People

Anti-Semites are Using a Popular Chat App to Compile a List of Jewish PeopleAnti-Semetic trolls are creating an online list of Jewish people who are critical of white nationalism. Since its creation almost a month ago, it has become the fastest-growing alt-right group on the popular Telegram chat service. The list is mostly made of archived tweets from individuals criticizing white supremacy, misogyny, and other types of bigotry. Each profile includes a tweet in which the person in question describes themselves as Jewish. The first post on the list singled out Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), but posters quickly moved to documenting far less prominent people that they believe are Jewish. The list includes many who are not public figures, or who have only modest profiles as rank-and-file activists, journalists, or social media figures. Around a dozen people have been added nearly every day. “When you curate public information in this…

6 Years Ago, Democrats Failed on Guns. Have They Learned From Their Mistakes?

6 Years Ago, Democrats Failed on Guns. Have They Learned From Their Mistakes?Beto O’Rourke reshaped the national gun debate when, in response to a string of deadly mass shootings, he called for a mandatory buyback of the military-style assault weapons used in the massacres. “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” he said during last week’s debate. “We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.” “If we really wanted universal background checks, we’d be talking about an assault weapons ban. If we really wanted an assault weapons ban, we would be talking about a constitutional amendment.”Gun rights advocates were enraged; one right-wing Texas lawmaker responded with what appeared to be a death threat. Even some Democrats—who for years had assured voters that no one wants to confiscate their weapons—worried that O’Rourke had gone too far. “I frankly think that that clip…

Coming Soon to a Battlefield: Robots That Can Kill

Coming Soon to a Battlefield: Robots That Can KillWallops Island—a remote, marshy spit of land along the eastern shore of Virginia, near a famed national refuge for horses—is mostly known as a launch site for government and private rockets. But it also makes for a perfect, quiet spot to test a revolutionary weapons technology.If a fishing vessel had steamed past the area last October, the crew might have glimpsed half a dozen or so 35-foot-long inflatable boats darting through the shallows, and thought little of it. But if crew members had looked closer, they would have seen that no one was aboard: The engine throttle levers were shifting up and down as if controlled by ghosts. The boats were using high-tech gear to sense their surroundings, communicate with one another, and automatically position themselves so, in theory, .50-caliber machine guns that can be strapped to their bows could fire a…

Why Me?

Why Me?The day after my 18th birthday, I boarded a plane and left Oakland for Los Angeles, where I was to announce on national TV which university I planned to attend in the fall. It was April 22, 2014. The 45-minute flight was quick, and before I knew it, I was in the green room. Everybody was so kind; the atmosphere was cheerful. I waited backstage for my introduction.“Despite living in the inner city, our next guest has made his own path to success, earning a 5.0 GPA and scoring a 2100 on his SATs. He has been accepted into many Ivy League schools and proves that, with hard work and support from family, anything is possible. From Oakland, California, please welcome 18-year-old Tunde Ahmad,” Ellen DeGeneres proclaimed.I gave Ellen a hug as I settled into the guest chair and started talking about how I’d learned to dance. I then…
