Why is AVClub attacking a Jewish Man and a migrant over their love of Afro-American culture?
Fucking nazi shitlords.
Let's be honest, it's just pure, unadulterated, vile resentment. Shatner and Notch have long been targeted by them because they just cannot reconcile the fact that these problematic wrong-thinkers are so rich, famous and untouchable.

It's the same reason with them constantly going after Kanye. Kanye likes Trump, and he's open about it, and it drives them fucking NUTS that they can't deplatform or hurt him in any meaningful way. They are soccer moms angrily shaking their picket signs to no effect whatsoever.

Remember when William Shatner broke new ground and was 1/2 of the first interracial kiss on television? What a far right shitlord.
The guy was active in a time where there was actual censorship of blacks, homosexuals, and even women in media and he fought against that type of discrimination in the ways he could and actually achieved a change. It's horrifying seeing Millenials who were born in more accepting times but who believe telling you "lol gay" is oppression calling him names. Shatner was everything they actually want to be.

Do you think James Woods listens too?
Remember when AV Club actually talked about AV instead of just being a bunch of screeching autists attacking random people about literally nothing?

Me either.

Investigators from the Spanish police and National Intelligence Center (CNI) have linked an attack on the North Korean embassy in Madrid on February 22 to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Sources believe the goal of the attack embassy was to get information on the former North Korean ambassador to Spain

At least two of the 10 assailants who broke into the embassy and interrogated diplomatic staff have been identified and have connections to the US intelligence agency. The CIA has denied any involvement but government sources say their response was “unconvincing.”


If it is proven that the CIA was behind the attack, it could lead to a diplomatic spat between Madrid and Washington. Government sources say that it would be “unacceptable” for an ally to take such action. Not only would it mean that the US agency had operated on Spanish soil without asking for authorization or informing the authorities, it would also be a violation of the international conventions that protect diplomatic delegations.


What’s more, unlike other intelligence activities – such as cyberattacks, which are characterized by their discretion, the attack on the North Korean embassy was especially violent. On February 22 at 3pm, 10 masked men carrying alleged imitation weapons broke into the embassy, located north of the capital in the residential area of Aravaca. They tied up the eight people inside and put bags on their heads. The victims were beaten and interrogated. A woman managed to escape from a window on the second floor and her screams for help were heard by a neighbor, who contacted the police.


Officers arrived at the scene but when they tried to enter the embassy a man opened the door to them and told them that there was nothing going on. Minutes later, two luxury vehicles sped out of the embassy. The cars used for the getaway belonged to the diplomatic mission and were later abandoned in a nearby street.

The assailants tied up the eight people inside the embassy and put bags on their heads

Police found the eight victims inside. They had been held hostage for two hours, had had bags placed over their heads, had been beaten and were scared. Two of them required medical attention.


Investigators from the General Information Office (CGI) and CNI ruled out the idea that the attack was the work of common criminals. The operation was perfectly planned as if it were carried out by a “military cell,” said sources close to the investigation. The assailants knew what they were looking for, taking only computers and mobile phones.


The highly secretive investigation will be heard at Spain’s High Court, the Audiencia Nacional, which could order the arrest of the identified assailants. Government sources, however, admit it would be difficult to prove the CIA was involved in court.

Kim Hyok Chol

Sources believe that the goal of the attack on the North Korean embassy was to get information on Kim Hyok Chol, the former North Korean ambassador to Spain.

Kim Hyok Chol was expelled from Spain on September 19, 2017 by the then-Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis given that the nuclear testing that the country was carrying out at the time was in serious breach of United Nations Security Council resolutions.


Kim Hyok Chol, who was declared persona non grata by Spain and was invited to leave the country before the end of the month, is currently one of Kim Jong-un’s highly trusted diplomats, and one of the architects of the failed nuclear summit between US President Donald Trump and Kim Jon-un in Vietnam. The meeting, aimed at securing North Korea’s nuclear disarmament, ended in failure without any agreement on a timetable for disarmament or on future negotiations.


In February, Kim Hyok Chol also led the North Korean delegation that negotiated a nuclear disarmament plan with US special envoy Stephen Biegun in exchange for sanctions to be lifted.
"“It appears that [the perpetrators] did not know that there were guests there,” sources say. They were, however, apparently looking for specific documentation."

'Cosplay' burglar facing charges in Fukuoka

A man is facing charges in western Japan for allegedly breaking into a house dressed as a popular animation character.

The 37-year-old unemployed man has been arrested in Fukuoka Prefecture and indicted for stealing more than 17,000 yen, or about 150 dollars, from the house last month.

Police say he was dressed as a character from the animated series "Neon Genesis Evangelion" when he broke into the house.

Investigators were tipped off that a suspicious person in "cosplay" was seen in the neighborhood.

The man has reportedly told police that he gets a desire to steal when he's in costume, and that he has committed about 10 other burglaries.

Police say the man has been booked in the past for committing thefts while dressed as Spider-Man or a bunny girl.

It might not be the right section to post this one but Timcast posted a vlog about the Ferguson activists during the Ferguson riots of 2014 who had died mysteriously starting some conspiracies theories.

Edit: The Boston Globe posted an article on the subject.
https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2019/03/17/puzzling-number-men-tied-ferguson-protests-have-died/AGhdXZt06fPXKQtrBMZIiP/story.html ( http://archive.li/NJadZ )

FERGUSON, Mo. — Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose.
Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play.
Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.

US accused of trying to dilute global agreements on women's rights [The Guardian]

US officials in New York are attempting to water down language and remove the word “gender” from documents being negotiated at the UN, in what is being seen as a threat to international agreements on women’s rights.

In negotiations at the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), which resume at UN headquarters this week, the US wants to replace “gender” in the forum’s outcome document with references only to women and girls.

In a speech to CSW on Friday, Cherith Norman Chalet, US ambassador for UN management and reform, said “we are not about gender jargon. Today, here at the Commission on the Status of Women, we are about women. Women and girls. The life of all women and girls”.
"Dilute" my ass.
 
Fishing regulations for Lake Fork require a length limit in the 16-24" slot, meaning only bass 16 inches and less, or 24 inches or greater, in length may be kept, according to the Texas Parks & Wildlife website.
OK, how did this get past an editor? Obviously the fucking limit isn't less than or equal to 16", or greater than or equal to 24". That would be fucking stupid. Clearly the limit is greater than or equal to 16, less than or equal to 24. As in, a window of size that is acceptable.

But the Trainwreck actress is unfazed by his condition and admitted one of the reasons why she fell in love with him was because 'he keeps it so real' and always tells the truth.
She said: 'Once he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all of the characteristics that make it clear that he's on the spectrum are all of the reasons that I fell madly in love with him.
'That's the truth. He says whatever is on his mind. He keeps it so real. He doesn't care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do.'

Amy Schumer tells all on Chris Fischer and possibility of kids


In April she told the Howard Stern Show that she and Fischer slept together on their first date.
'We had sex. You know me. Sex!' Schumer said. 'There was no nonsense. It was just, "Let’s go." And, it was sweet. It was really nice. We had a great night.'
She continued, 'I have a habit of not letting people sleep in my bed, and so I wanted him to sleep there, then in the morning, I was happy he was there. I said in the morning, "I don’t want you to go," and he said, "I don’t want to go either." And, then we just worked really hard to keep seeing each other.'
The star also told ET in April she was happy to be done dating.
'Yeah. I do feel different. I'm done. I don't ever have to zip my knee boots up and leave a dude's place at 4 a.m. that has, like a Rottweiler,' she joked.
'I just knew I didn't want to settle. I'll be fine on my own. Maybe I'll fall in love a couple more times but I don't need that partner. And then I met the person I wanted to partner up with. I didn't know right away. I knew him for seven months before it became romantic, but once I knew, I knew quick. I was like "Oh, I'm done. I can't believe I messed with those other suckers."'
