Using violence by thuggish leftist racists (Finnish Resistance Movement) as a pretext, Finnish mp’s race like hell to curb our public square speech.
Mark my words, saying anything negative about Islam and about some of its practitioners will now be deemed as ”racism”. Using their logic, anything negative being said in public discourse against US Republicans should now be considered hate speech. It’s as if Flemming Rose never gave that speech in Helsinki at the beginning of this year.
NOTE: They’re jackasses, what we need is more speech to counter the speech that we disagree with. Lazy knuckleheads can only respond with the brunt force of state power.
Nine MPs launched a bill to outlaw ‘organised racism’ on Thursday. The eight come from each of the eight parties represented in parliament, but they will need at least another 91 MPs to back their proposal for it to proceed.
The bill aims to ban any organisation or organised activities that promote racial discrimination. Participation in such activities would be punishable by the criminal courts.
The bill was proposed by Ozan Yanar (Green), Outi Alanko-Kahiluoto (Green), Annika Saarikko (Centre), Tiina Elovaara (Finns Party), Saara-Sofia Sirén (National Coalition), Nasima Razymar (Social Democrat), Hanna Sarkkinen (Left Alliance), Eva Biaudet (Swedish People’s Party) and Sari Essayah (Christian Democrat).
The leader of the Green Party’s youth wing Jaakko Mustakallio, who had proposed the initiative, said that it aimed to eliminate confusion over the interpretation of existing laws against hate speech and discrimination.
The move comes a week after a man died following an assault in which the main suspect is a member of the neo-Nazi Finnish Resistance Movement.
