  • The New Mystery Science Theater 3000 Is the Perfect Pop Culture Revival

    04/15/2017 5:44:36 AM PDT · by Morgana · 44 replies ^ | April 14, 2017 | Rob Bricken
    Fans don’t like to let their favorites go, but now they don’t have to. We live in a world desperate to remake, reboot, and flat-out return to beloved franchises, hunting the closest thing to a sure audience there is. But the more beloved these continuations are, they harder they are to get right. Fans want them to somehow be exactly the same while still being fresh and new, an impossible request—except, it turns out, for the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The show returns today on Netflix with its 11th season, 18 years after season 10 ended in 1999....
  • The Subway Kicker is a Roma From Bulgaria

    It turns out that the “subway kicker” — the man who kicked a woman down the stairs of the Berlin subway in a surveillance video that went viral — is indeed a culture-enricher. But he’s not a Muslim, he’s a Roma, a.k.a. a gypsy. His name is Svetoslav Stoykov, and the news reports refer to him as a “Bulgarian”, because that’s the passport he carries. Designating him a Bulgarian is a cause of great shame for ethnic Bulgarians, as the following news report shows.>

    Simple politically correct euphemism, “Rom/Romani,” invented by progressives. is confusing and obfuscating history by design, misrepresenting the roots of an entire minority, the gypsies The invasion of Europe by young military-age Muslim men from the Middle East and Africa has pushed one Western European “headache” to the back burner – the Romanian gypsies, with their nomadic lifestyle and “criminality,” petty theft, pickpocketing, and begging around train stations and major tourist attractions; these gypsies have irritated the European Union bureaucrats and the selectively multicultural Europeans. In an effort to combat any ethnic discrimination, the Romanian government passed H.G. 1194 on December...

    It seems as though the racist accusations have turned on First Lady Michelle Obama after she made a grammar gaffe on Monday while speaking about part-time job salaries. Unlike when she inappropriately slanders someone or something for being racist, in her recent offending comments she was in fact acting the part. The First Lady used the word “gypped” while describing the earnings for part-time jobs, with specific regard to when she herself was a working mother as an ABC news reporter at the White House Summit on Working Families. The remark is now drawing some criticism from media outlets for...

    A South Florida mom who brought her five young children along for the ride when she staged car crashes to make cash will spend even longer in prison because she put her kids in harm's way, a judge ruled Friday. Ana Ovando, was already looking at a four-year prison term. Instead, she'll spend 6 1/2 years in federal lockup, U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks decided.

    CRAYS HILL, England — Vivien Slattery has lived her whole life in a tidy mobile home, one of dozens more like it on a crowded site beside green English fields. Soon, baby Vivien, 16 days old, and more than 200 others will be evicted from the settlement east of London, the losers in a decade-long battle between local officials and their community of Irish Travelers that has drawn attention around the world and concern from the United Nations. The local authority says it's a simple planning issue: The 86 families lack permission to pitch homes on the land. The Travelers...

    Rick Perry kicks off his campaign tomorrow, but is he electable? In an interview last fall, the Texas governor advocated dismantling Medicare and Social Security. For months, Republicans have complained about their choices in the 2012 presidential race. Mitt Romney seems unprincipled, they’ve said. Michele Bachmann is too flimsy. Tim Pawlenty looks fine on paper, but in person, not so much. And Newt Gingrich is just plain erratic. But now disaffected conservatives think they’ve found their man. His name? Rick Perry. This weekend, while most of the field focuses on the Ames, Iowa straw poll, the three-plus-term Texas governor will...

    At a time when the EU has called on member states to make greater efforts to integrate Roma living on their territories, Viktor Orbán’s government, which currently holds the presidency of the European Union, continues to turn a blind eye to the ongoing campaign to intimidate "Gypsy criminals" conducted by far-right Magyar groups. Gyöngyöspata (Hungary), March 12, 2011. Members of Szebb Jövoert surround the house of a Roma family. At the end of March, paramilitary members of Hungary’s extreme-right Jobbik political party organised several weeks of village patrols to counter “Gypsy criminality” — a worrying demonstration of strength that failed...

    On March 22 the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) will hold a hearing to investigate the allegations of a Slovakian woman of Romani ethnic origin (also known as gypsy) who claims she was the victim of a forced sterilization during the delivery of her second child by caesarean section, in 2000 at the Prešov Public Hospital. The applicant, known only as Ms V.C., claims she was given the sterilization consent form to sign while in pain and neither understood what she was signing nor the consequences of the procedure. She further alleges that her Romani ethnicity was a deciding...

    It’s been five months since Enzo Vincenzi of Estero won a $136,500 jury award against a “Santeria Africana” spiritual adviser, but she still owns the Fort Myers motel he says she duped him out of through voodoo trickery. Vincenzi’s lawyer backed out of the case involving the Sabal Park Inn after a falling out, so a rescission of deed, which could have transferred ownership back to the 43-year-old Vincenzi, never proceeded in court. Meanwhile, Vincenzi has hired a private investigator who is trying to build a case in the hopes that spiritual adviser Miriam Pacheco, her partner, Maria Teresa Torres,...

    Roma rights activists during a protest in front of the French embassy in Bucharest, Romania, 06 Sep 2010 The European Parliament has criticized the move by the French government to expel its Roma migrants. Since August, France has deported about 1,000 ethnic Roma to Romania and Bulgaria. In a resolution passed Thursday, the European Union called for France to bring it to a stop. European Parliament member for London Jean Lambert says France's Roma policy is discriminatory. "It is not saying you have committed a crime and therefore you as an individual should be expelled from this country," Lampert. "It...

    BUCHAREST, Romania - At first, fans politely applauded the Roma performers sharing a stage with Madonna. Then the pop star condemned widespread discrimination against Roma, or Gypsies — and the cheers gave way to jeers. The sharp mood change that swept the crowd of 60,000, who had packed a park for Wednesday night's concert, underscores how prejudice against Gypsies remains deeply entrenched across Eastern Europe. Despite long-standing efforts to stamp out rampant bias, human rights advocates say Roma probably suffer more humiliation and endure more discrimination than any other people group on the continent. Sometimes, it can be deadly: In...

    Speaking for the European Union presidency, Swedish migration minister Tobias Billström said on Wednesday that the EU supported requiring visas for Canadians travelling to the EU in response to Canada’s decision to impose visa restrictions on Czech nationals. "As the presidency of the EU, we are in favour of this reciprocity," Swedish Migration and Asylum Policy Minister Tobias Billström told AFP. "But it's up to the Commission to handle the proposal, because the Commission is responsible for the reciprocity mechanism," he added. Canada imposed visas on Czechs to stave off what it said was a steady influx of Roma asylum...
