Musician Banned Because of Political Views

Postby R_Head » 07 Apr 2018, 16:48

Valentina Lisitsa is an Ukranian Classical Pianist and she is outstanding !!! However, because she tells it like it is, she got banned and cancelled her concerts. She is very vocal about the NATO backed puppet Gov in Ukraine and their atrocities. Artists in genreal are in bed with the Socialist Progressive movements and seems like she is not that way. She became famous by posting in YouTube, playing for the people and nothing more. We sure need more artists like that without political biases/hate.

"Lisitsa was scheduled to play concerts in Toronto this week, but on Monday, Lisitsa was told by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra that her two performances were canceled. The problem had nothing to do with her playing, and everything to do with her politics.

Lisitsa has been tweeting for months about the political situation in Ukraine under the pseudonym “NedoUkraïnka." The pianist, who was born in Ukraine but is an ethnic Russian, has been highly critical of the government in Kiev — even comparing its behavior to the Nazis."

When will people understand that freedom of expression is all about accepting people that they disagree with!

Those people are saying "I will not hear you play because I disagree with you" ....They could just as well say "I am against freedom of expression..if you don't agree with me" - stupid and dangerous.

The democratic way is to defend even minorities: "I hate what you are saying and I will forever defend your right to say it" +1

..and Wow! She is good!!

From a former classical pianist, she is absolutely fantastic!
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.
