Ukraine War Day #83: Ukrainians Cheated At Eurovision!

Dear Readers:

The annual Eurovision Song Contest concluded a couple of days ago (May 14), in Turin Italy.

I am sure that most of you are avid followers of this major artistic event [not], therefore you will already be aware of the fact, that the Ukrainian team won. Surprise, surprise! Which means that the Ukraine will be hosting the competition next year, probably in Kiev. Or maybe in Lvov. Here is the winning entry, by a highly talented [not] pop/rap group called Kalush:

This group of degenerates artists won the contest through sheer talent alone, and totally did not cheat.

Oh wait, they did! For starters, the rules of the contest require that participants are forbidden to make political statements. The Ukrainian performers broke this rule and politicized to the hilt, when they called upon the audience to help Ukraine, and to help the brave fighters of the Azov Battalion. This one act alone should have disqualified them. When this was pointed out, the organizers of the competition excused the Ukrainians on the grounds that they get emotional about their country; besides, it was a “humanitarian gesture”. One reminds that Russia was banned from sending their own entry, on political grounds. Besides, Eurovision has been a political whore for many years now.

Secondly, and even more important, the Ukrainians literally cheated by taking votes that were intended for Moldavia. Reporter Anton Nikitin explains how that happened:

At next year’s competition, Zelensky will play the piano with his penis.

According to the head of the Romanian delegation, Juliana Marchuk, the Romanian jury gave their highest vote to the Moldavian singers; but the Eurovision organizers switched that vote to the Ukrainian team, thus ensuring their victory. And there was a lot more hanky panky going on, even more than that: “As a result of changes introduced by the organizers, neither Moldavia nor Romania received a single point. […] Just before announcing the results, the European Broadcasting Company (Европейский вещательный союз) removed the juries of 6 countries, claiming they had used an incorrect voting scheme, but they did not specify exactly which countries…” In the final result, the Ukrainian team gained 631 votes from some kind of combination of professional jury and television viewers. The rules are set up in such a way that there is a lot of wiggle room for the event organizers to, in effect, decide who is going to win.

None of these shenanigans really matter, though, the end was preordained. As a Russian pundit noted, the Ukrainians would have won this year even if they had just trotted out a deaf-mute dog onto the stage and watched it try to bark. Because Europeans have been whipped up into the belief that Ukrainians shoot rainbows out of their butts.

    Not to be pedantic, but it was the contest organizers who cheated, not the Ukrainians as such, yeah? (Ok, I’m being pedantic. I was toilet trained at gun point, alright?)
    To be honest, I think it would have worked better if they’d just said at the start 5million biliion bonus points to Gryffindor..err…Ukraine, the rest of you are competing for second place.
    Strange times, eh?

      The contest organizers cheated for sure, but so did the Ukrainian singers, when they started peddling their sob story to the audience. The rules say you can’t get political, and they did. Which is why I asserted that they cheated.

      Okay, it’s lame, I admit.

        Yes, the Ukrainian singers violated the rules. But I suspect they knew, at a minimum, that the fix was in, if they were not actively encouraged to do so by the organizers.

        Not , of course, that I can prove any of that, but, as they say, something is rotten in Denmark.

    I don’t like the group, but there’s no need to call them ‘degenerates’.

      No? I mean, look at their stupid costumes. Plus, did you watch that “rapper” guy and his dumb rapper moves. This song is supposed to be a tragic tale of a mother comforting her child in the middle of a brutal war, and this dude is prancing around and clutching at his crotch – LOL!

        Completely correct Yalensis.

        For me there was a far bigger disgrace a couple of years ago when the Ukraine couldn’t even field a contestant for this stupid contest. A shortlist of 5 or 6 was settled on – but none of them were allowed to represent the Ukraine because all had performed in Russia or had family there or refused to sign an agreement not to tour there – which would be a death sentence on their career and earnings!

        They do look like absolute degenerates, and I find it odd and perhaps disrespectful to 404 as to why he chose to focus on Azov in the steelplant in the speech after the song, instead of a more general show of thanks to all the 150000 approx “defenders” in the Donbass and the South?

        The whole population seems zombified by the west to the point that if the western media is entirely focused on Azovstal.. then the ukronazi population will follow too. They seem to be under the absurd impression that half of the Russian army is surrounding the plant, and that all of operation z is being derailed because of this. A bunch of Anne Frank style cannibals hiding away are being painted as some sort of Rorke’s Drift style defenders.

          Haha! thanks for comment, Eric. As for the focus on Azovstal, I think it’s actually the other way around: the Ukrainian Nationalists have been completely focused on this, to the exclusion of everything else, and I think the Westies just adopted this obsession from the Ukrainians. Because Ukrainians are like a kind of Svengali now, they have hypnotized and enthralled Westies with their toxic but addictive B.S.

          In other words: Why are the Ukrainians so obsessed with Azov? Because these Nazis are their dearest heroes, they love them so much it’s all they can think of. Why are Westies so obsessed with Azov? Because Ukrainians are, and Westies take their ideological clues (and obsessions) from the Ukrainians. It’s a rather twisted relationship, no?

          Personally, I lost all interest in Azovstal the moment it was clear that it had just become a sideshow and no longer posed any danger to Russian domination of Mariupol. That was even before Putin gave the order to “seal it up so that not even a fly can get out.”

          I personally have no military knowledge, but I like to think I have a good eye (and good gut feeling) for what is important and what is not. I have been following the war closely, and I pay little attention to these carnival sideshows like Azovstal or even Kharkov front. The true story is being told over there on the Donbass defensive line, and also now at the Lisichansk front.

    I thought the Hitler salutes were a nice touch, along with the set design which looked a lot like that “Black Sun” emblem that Azov and the Buffalo supermarket shooter display.

    It’s entertaining to witness the russian butt-hurt over something as imbecile as the Eurovision song contest. Only children, gay men and russian politicians watch this spectacle it seems.

      Well, you are right in principle, but a lot of people are still nostalgic over what Eurovision used to be. I mean, its past greatness, like back in the ABBA glory days!

      Or, even better than ABBA, who can forget that magical year when this dynamic German team won the contest!
