They didn’t boo Putin

lenteling:


No, they booed two 17 year old girls.

I really enjoyed this year’s Eurovision and I think it is amazing that Austria has won (and that my country, The Netherlands, came in second). But one thing I really didn’t enjoy was all the booing that happened when Russia was mentioned.

I get the sentiment, but was this the time and the place to do it? No. You booed for two 17 year old girls. Just image how those girls must have felt when they were booed by so many people, every single time again. I thought it was so brave how they continued to smile and wave in the camera, but you could see their struggle.

Eurovision is about acceptance and coming together (the winning of Conchita made that extra clear this year) and that’s why the booing struck such a nerve with me. Did you think those girls felt accepted? No. They were cast out because of the actions of their country, or better even, the actions of their country’s leader(s).

Do you think Putin gives a shit about being booed at Eurovision? Probably not. Do you think this has affected the Tolmachevy Sisters? Yes, because they got the feeling that the whole of Europe hates them, just because they are Russian.

Let’s not be ignorant and condemn so many people because of the actions of a few. The girls came to represent their country, a country with flaws (as every country has, some more than others), a country they undoubtedly love, even though that can be hard sometimes.

And they did a good job. They sang well and it was a good performance. They did not deserve this. If you’re gonna preach acceptance, you have to do it right, you have to go all the way, otherwise it’s hypocrite and you’re just as bad as the people you’re condemning.

So this being said, I hope the Tolmachevy Sisters can shake this are not left with grudgeful feelings. And I hope Europe and Eurovision will do and be even better next year. Let’s go all the way.
