Microchip manufacturer Intel, which has close ties to the state of Israel, has partnered with a radical far-left feminist activist who hates Israel, has accused the state of building an “apartheid wall” and has described Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev as “evil incarnate,” Breitbart can reveal.
Intel describes its company history as “closely interwoven with the evolution of the State of Israel.” The company was founded in the United States in 1968; just six years later, it opened an office in Haifa. Intel Israel is now the country’s largest private-sector employer, with nearly 10,000 people, spread across offices in Haifa, Jerusalem, Petach Tikva, Qiryat Gat and Yakum. […]
It is odd, therefore, to discover the company sucking up to far-Left campaigners Feminist Frequency, partnering with them as part of a new $300 million “diversity drive”–and even, reportedly, giving that organisation money, given that its due diligence checks will surely have uncovered the ugly public statements from Feminist Frequency co-founder, writer and producer Jonathan McIntosh, who has expressed no small degree of outright disgust for Israel, its people and its policies in the past.
McIntosh, who describes himself as a “pop culture hacker” and “transformative storyteller,” previously achieved brief notoriety on the internet for his YouTube videos, among them “Buffy vs Edward” and “Donald Duck meets Glenn Beck.” He is the mastermind behind the Feminist Frequency “Tropes vs. Women” YouTube series and hosts his own videos on the channel, including “25 Invisible Benefits of Being Male While Gaming”.
McIntosh sits on the board of the New Media Rights group and is an advisor to Silverstring Media. But he is also a far-Left agitator who attended anti-Israel events for years, who has acquired a notorious reputation in the video games industry for his outrageous and sometimes downright wacky opinions about “toxic masculinity,” feminism, capitalism, and, in particular, Israel.
He “refused to celebrate the killing” of Osama bin Laden, writing that he would not welcome the death “of any human being regardless of how reprehensible they might have been.” Yet McIntosh later wrote, on the death of Christopher Hitchens: “He was a despicable, vile, hateful, warmongering human being. Good riddance.”
McIntosh has spoken remarkably disparagingly about Intel’s native Silicon Valley, claiming that it is “full of repugnant white dudes who believe capitalism and their personal technology idea will save the poor brown people.” His Feminist Frequency co-host Anita Sarkeesian is an equally hard-line leftist propagandist who claims: “There’s no such thing as sexism against men.”
