The rationale is that if someone has already installed one of these IoT spy devices in their home, that they are by default not at all concerned about their privacy.
Hey, it could be worse. Oops, well, it IS worse.
I stumbled upon this video, "Hidden Radios in Home Devices" Very interesting. Very disturbing as well.

Enjoy (if you can).

^ Very interesting. This video tweet explains it perfectly.

As for the video in post #31: an all-too-familiar mixture of well-known facts and truisms combined with outrageous claims and suspicions. Move along, nothing to see here.
PS: and of course he's selling his degoogled(*) devices from a Google-infested site.
