‘Oh nein you didn’t!’: Internet horrified after German Olympic figure skater competes to ‘Schindler’s List’

Published

on

German figure skater Nicole Schott competed in the Olympics Thursday to music from the film “Schindler’s List,” and the internet was horrified.

It isn’t the first time a figure skater has used the music. In 2014, Yulia Lipnitskaya did her gold-medal-winning routine to the song as well. The 15-year-old drew cries from Twitter asking if “Schindler’s List on Ice” was coming to an arena near them.

Given the heightened anti-Semitism, many wondered if perhaps it was best to curb the use of a song used to tell the story of a man who saved Jews from the Holocaust.

In another case, Yashar Ali of the Huffington Post, recalled Tatyana Navka, “the wife of Putin’s powerful spokesman Dmitry Peskov.” She and her partner performed a Holocaust themed performance during a competition in Russia. The two were dressed in stripped uniforms with the Star of David on their chest.

Watch a clip from Schott below:

Beto O’Rourke’s ‘war tax’ policy proposal is straight out of ‘Starship Troopers’

Published

on

Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke —  who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.
