This is actually a MP who works for a living….
Hakkarainen: We’re starting to have Sharia Law in Finland – “I wonder what the police would say, if I had five under age wives?”
– Finns are allowed to be freely criticized. For example, I can say that Ostrobothnians are knife wielding red necks, people from Savo are twisted, Lapplanders are ‘straw shoes’ and folks from Häme are slow, but if I criticize Muslims, then there are convictions, says Finns MP Teuvo Hakkarainen, who was cited for ethnic agitation.
Finns MP Teuvo Hakkarainen walks in the company’s yard of the sawmill in Viitasaari. Hakkarainen went to work at the family-owned sawmill after a trial at the Central Finland District Court held on 4 January.
Hakkarainen received 20 day-fines, or fines totaling EUR 1 160 for ethnic agitation. The judgment came when he equated Muslims and terrorists on Facebook last summer.
– In fact, I am not very excited about the matter. What happened happened. A ridiculous witch hunt is on. Public opinion is surely behind what I said, Hakkarainen says over a cup of coffee.
After a terrorist attack in Nice Hakkarainen wrote on Facebook that “not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” Hakkarainen is amazed that he received a judgment.
– It was a quote, which was, inter alia, in the Helsingin Sanomat and in many other media. Oddly, nothing was done about what was written earlier, but this is scalp journalism and it has its own life. We’re in a witch hunt, the target of scalp journalism, Hakkarainen snorts.
