En ung mann med et stort talent har nettopp gledet de fleste av oss med å være utrolig naturlig, blid og entusiastisk, - og det under et stort press fra mange som vil ha en bit av ham, publikum som presse.
Han vant Eurovision Song Contest og gir ut ei plate som er full av virkelig god musikk, – etter min mening.
Terningkast 6 i VG, - mens Dagbladet er vaksinert mot å gå over en 4’er uansett, i alle fall om det er noe “folkelig”..
På debattforum skal han derfor nå høvles ned slik at ingen og aller minst hovedpersonen selv skal føle at han er jo kjempeflink!
Det tåles ikke av janteloven og en endeløs rekke av troll med pc og internett-tilgang. Hatet eter dem opp innenfra, men sårer selvsagt underveis de som faktisk kjenner ham og er glad i ham.
Dette er for meg like ufattelig som hærverk på eiendom, men langt verre iom at dette er et menneske med følelser som alle andre. Hva er det som driver dem? Utilfredshet med eget liv?
Ingen forventer at alle liker det samme, – men hvor kommer dette innbitte hatet fra? Han må ikke lykkes, – det er ikke nok at stemme og instrumentbeherskelse dømmes nord og ned i seg selv, – nei – : Han er stygg, klærne håpløse, han smiler for mye, han er for søt osv osv
Dette er faktisk et ordtak selv den mest forvorpne burde fatte:
En blir ikke hvitere av å sverte andre.
Lykke til videre, Alexander! Stå på!
Alexander Rybak and the haters
A young man with an enormous talent has just rejoiced most of us by being incredibly down to earth, cheerful and enthusiastic, - and this in the middle of severe pressure from so many wanting a part of him, the audience as well as the press.
He won the Eurovision Song Contest and is releasing a CD filled with truly wonderful music,
- in my opinion.
( The two main tabloids differ in their opinions )
Top marks from the most popular paper, - while the brainy one as usual cannot go any higher than 4 out of 6, - as always when things are deemed too main street..
So on boards all over here he now simply has to be cut down to size so that nobody and not least the main man himself should get the notion that he is great and accomplished!
That will of course not do according to the law of Jante and an endless parade of trolls with computers and internet-access.
The Jante Law
in his novel A fugitive crosses his tracks
There are ten different rules in the law, but they are all variations on a single theme and are usually referred to as a homogeneous unit: Don't think you're anyone special or that you're better than us!
- Don't think that you are special.
- Don't think that you are of the same standing as us.
- Don't think that you are smarter than us.
- Don't fancy yourself as being better than us.
- Don't think that you know more than us.
- Don't think that you are more important than us.
- Don't think that you are good at anything.
- Don't laugh at us.
- Don't think that anyone of us cares about you.
- Don't think that you can teach us anything.
Further in the book: 11. Don't think that there is something we don't know about you.
Hatred is eating away at them from within but at the same time hurting the ones actually knowing and loving him.
This to me is just as incomprehensible as vandalism but far worse as this harms a human being with emotions like anyone else. What brings them to do this? That they are unhappy about their own lives?
Nobody expects everybody to have the same taste, - but where does this ardent hate originate? He must not succeed, - and it does not suffice that vocals and proficiency as a musician is doomed down in the pits, - oh no! He is ugly, has no fashion sense, smiles too much, is too cute etc and so on..
This is a proverb with a message even the most depraved should get:
Tarring others will not whitewash you.
Best of luck, Alexander! Follow your dreams!
