German Olympic Figure Skater Dancing to ‘Schindler’s List’ Score ‘Is a Bad Music Choice’

(Spoiler alert: This post includes details of the Winter Olympics from PyeongChang not yet aired in the U.S.)

German figure skater Nicole Schott’s decision to dance to the score from Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning Holocaust drama “Schindler’s List” overshadowed her actual performance early Friday morning local time in PyeongChang in South Korea.

While the film’s main theme music composed by John Williams and performed by violinist Itzhak Perlman is hauntingly beautiful, many thought it was inappropriate considering Germany’s history with the Nazis and Jewish concentration camps.

Schott’s use of the score was described as “a bad music choice” by one Twitter user Thursday night, while another said it “feels real f—ed up.”

“Nicole Schott, German figure skater, chooses to do her free skate to the Schindlers List theme song,” was a subsequent social media user’s opinion. “You just cannot draw it up any worse. Face planting on your first move and laying there for the reminder of your time would’ve been better.”

However, one person logically pointed out that Schott is only 21, and “was born in the post-Nazi era.”

Many speculated on her family origins and if she was a “Dreamer.” Born in Essen, Germany, Schott’s father is originally from Poland, where he was a professional hockey player, according to her Olympics.org bio.

However, despite the uproar, USA Today reported that Schott is not the first figure skater to use the “Schindler’s List” score. The violin-based soundtrack has been in the regular rotation since the movie’s 1993 release. Months after its U.S. debut, German figure skater and two-time Olympic gold medalist Katarina Witt performed to it.

“Schindler’s List” tells the story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a Sudeten German businessman, during which he saved the lives of more than a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees from the Holocaust by employing them in his factories during World War II.

It won seven Academy Awards (out of twelve nominations), including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Score.

Nicole Schott is a lovely & talented woman who was born more than 50 yrs post-Nazi era (original German Nazis, not present day US wannabes.) That said, if you are representing Germany in ladies figure skating, “Schindler’s List” is a bad music choice.

Nicole Schott is a German woman skating to Schindler’s List. that feels real fucked up #Olympics

Maybe don’t skate to the theme from Schindler’s List if you’re from Germany. It’s just a little bit #Awkward. #Olympics https://t.co/VgVlBfgfY6

The music score of Schindler’s List is beautiful. I’d like to know why Nicole Schott of Germany chose to skate to it. I seriously doubt that she intended any offense.

God I love the pace of closed captioning. Just now, watching a German figure skater:

NICOLE SCHOTT IS SKATING TO…

…SCHINDLER’S LIST ????

– T.J. Chambers (@tjchambersLA) February 23, 2018

Germany’s Nicole Schott skating to Schindler’s List is an interesting choice.

– Bryan Armen Graham (@BryanAGraham) February 23, 2018

Nicole Schott of Germany is being slammed for figure skating to music from Schindler’s List, but Schott is an Ashkenazic name so is anyone asking whether she’s Jewish? Seems like the obvious question but can’t find any answers online.

– David Volodzko (@davidvolodzko) February 23, 2018

Nicole Schott is actually a Dreamer, so her parents are from Poland.

– Juergen Klinger (@JuergenKlinge) February 23, 2018

I’m glad I’m not the only one who raised an eyebrow at the skater from Germany using music from Schindler’s List. #Olympics2018

You think the worst they can do is fall then you hear Schindler’s List playing! pic.twitter.com/Mdr9HM00bt

In defense of the German skater who chose the theme from “Schindler’s List” for her routine… yeah, I got nothing. #SchindlersList

‘Morning Joe’ Slams Trump’s Poland Speech Opening: ‘One of the Worst Ever’ (Video)

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough ripped President Trump’s speech in Poland on Thursday, saying, “The first 20 minutes was one of the worst presidential speeches I’ve ever heard on foreign soil.”

However, Scarborough noted that Trump “finished strong” because U.S. allies in Europe have to liked that the president reaffirmed American commitment to NATO and spoke out against propaganda and financial crimes by Russia.

However, the “Morning Joe” panel didn’t like that Trump criticized American intelligence agencies on foreign soil and Scarborough called the remarks “nothing short of disgusting.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski added, “I am certain that his foreign policy team didn’t prepare him that way.”

“For a sitting president of the United States, really, to be on foreign soil — you can’t really underline this enough — and attack America’s intel community, on foreign soil, and attack America’s free press on foreign soil… to attack American institutions two days after the fourth of July on foreign soil, the day before we meet America’s chief adversary, is nothing short of disgusting,” Scarborough said.

Trump is expected to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Slovenia on Friday.

CNN’s Jim Acosta Blasts Trump’s ‘Fake News Conference’ in Poland (Video)

CNN’s Jim Acosta didn’t care for President Donald Trump’s joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda on Thursday, calling it a “fake news conference” because the president took his attacks on the cable news network abroad.

“For the president to go off on CNN as fake news, to me, just made this spectacle feel like a fake news conference,” Acosta said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Acosta continued: “This was not an attempt by the president to seek out a question from somebody who was going to challenge him on the issues.”

The first reporter to ask Trump a question brought up the video had he tweeted on Sunday that portrayed him beating up a man with a CNN logo superimposed on his head. Trump was asked about CNN’s reaction to the video, which included what many conservative commentators considered blackmailing of the video’s pseudonymous creator after he apologized for the GIF.

“I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them, as you know, now they have some pretty serious problems. They have been fake news for a long time,” Trump said on Thursday. “They’ve been covering me in a very dishonest way.”

Acosta, who has a long history of dramatic encounters with Trump and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, said the conservative news media was being used by Trump to ask softball questions.

“I think that’s unfortunate,” Acosta said.

The CNN White House correspondent also called a variety of claims made by the president “fake news.”

Trump has frequently battled the media, but CNN and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” have been his primary targets recently. The president has attacked both outlets on Twitter, taking personal shots at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in addition to the CNN wrestling video.

“NBC is equally as bad despite the fact that I made them a fortune with ‘The Apprentice,’ but they forgot that. But I will say that CNN has really taken it too seriously and I think they’ve hurt themselves very badly. Very, very badly,” Trump said.

Trump said he wants to see “honest” and “fair” press in the United States.

GOP Congressman Slammed by Auschwitz Memorial for Video Taken Inside Gas Chamber (Video)

Louisiana Republican Congressman Clay Higgins is under fire after recording a video inside the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland.

Over one million people were slaughtered at the camp during World War II; the site is now the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. Higgins’s video has been condemned by the museum, which tweeted, “Everyone has the right to personal reflections. However, inside a former gas chamber, there should be mournful silence. It’s not a stage.”

Higgins narrates a tour of the camp in the video while surrounded by canisters of Zyklon B, telling viewers that it only took about 20 minutes for everyone to die.

“This is why homeland security must be squared away, why our military must be invincible,” Higgins said. “The world’s a smaller place now than it was in World War II. The United States is more accessible to terror like this, horror like this.”

Higgins is a former law enforcement officer who serves on the House Homeland Security Committee. At times, he points the camera to himself and talks selfie-style while inside the gas chambers.

“It’s hard to walk away from the gas chambers and ovens without a very sober feeling of commitment — unwavering commitment — to make damn sure that the United States of America is protected from the evils of the world,” Higgins said in the video.

The video was first posted to the YouTube channel of Lee Johnson Media, which bills itself as “A Conservative podcast looking at America of today.”

Check out the video above. Higgins has yet to release a statement.

ISIS Claims Responsibility for London Terror Attack, Attacker Identified as British-Born

ISIS claims Wednesday’s attack in London was carried out by one of its “soldiers” who “carried out the operation in response to calls for targeting citizens of the coalition.”

On Thursday, the extremist group released a statement to ISIS’ Amaq news agency, which it routinely uses to announce its role in deadly attacks. It read, according to Newsweek: ‘The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition.’

The attacker has not been identified, but British officials have said the man was “British-born” and had been investigated before regarding violent extremism in the past, according to the Independent.

British Prime Minister Theresa May delivered a powerful message on the heels of the terror attack: “We are not afraid.”

May told lawmakers in the House of Commons on Thursday that the “act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, but today we meet as normal.”

She said the carnage was “an attack on free people everywhere,” which is evident by the wide-range of victims. People from 11 countries were hospitalized, including 12 from the U.K., three from France, four South Koreans, two Greeks, two Romanians and one apiece from Germany, Poland, Ireland, China, Italy and America, according to the Associated Press, citing May.

The attacker killed three people, including a police officer, and injured multiple people. Eight people have been arrested in a series of overnight arrests in London and Birmingham.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he spoke with May to offer condolences.

Spoke to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May today to offer condolences on the terrorist attack in London. She is strong and doing very well.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 23, 2017

Parliament resumed work on Thursday, less than 24 hours after the deadly attack, and observed a minute of silence to remember those killed.
