This is just sad. A complete misrepresentation and total lack of understanding of the issue at hand.
The core problem is not with the technology but with the government gradually usurping more and more freedoms from individuals under the pretext of "safety" mandates which carry far reaching unintended consequences.
I am not a technophobe by any stretch of the imagination. I work in IT and I love to play with the newest tech both at work and at home. But I would have a major issue with a government mandate to have an "Alexa" device in every room listening to every conversation under the pretext of "safety for all residents."
A backdoor kill switch mandate in cars gets us really close to an Orwellian/Minority Report style dystopia. Unlike seatbelts, airbags or backup cameras, this device will prevent the car from moving. When it fails/malfunctions, as all electronic devices do, it will create life-threatening situations. Think railroad crossings, heavy highway traffic, etc. It's also an open invitation to abuse by criminals and governments. It gives the government a new, huge, unchecked power: to shut down all car traffic at a whim of some idiot politician. I can just see it ...
