Like good little Marxists who realize that they lost the economic war, they want to create angst, anxiety, constant conflict in society in order to destabilize it…
For these neo-Marxists, nothing is good, everything is to be challenged in Western society, it has to be challenged on every level, and in every sector. The civil society must be forced to bend to their whims and desires. Since they control much of the media, they have a grand opportunity to propagandize the people. We’re too white, we’re too Finnish, we’re to Western orientated in our thinking. Every single institution is to be upended and subverted to their cause while the average Matti and Maija look bewildered, not understanding what is happening before their eyes.
I’ve lived here for over 31 years, I have yet to force my views (though I gladly share them if the listener is willing) upon another. I have never insisted that they do this or that to please me or complain that I’m not being excepted as a citizen for one reason or another. What a bunch of steaming manure these miscreants and malcontents are spreading here. It disgusts me.
Do you know what being Finnish means?
How about being thankful that you live in a decent country (in spite some of the socialism), though problems exist, you’re not being hunted down and shot for your views. That you can have three squares a day, work, enjoy your evenings, watch Finnish national sports, listen to Finnish music and watch TV programming. Enjoy Finnish nature, the sauna culture, do all things that you’re legally able to do and within your means to do so. It means that you’re grateful for the sacrifices of a generation almost gone, who fought and died to keep this (not anyone else’s) country free, and I’m just getting started. If someone is upset that their second generation children are still deemed by some buffoons as “foreigners” (how are they behaving btw?), it doesn’t matter what they think, just grow some thicker skin, it will help with the tough Finnish winter climate as well.
Narrating the upcoming mega-documentary ’24h Europe’ led Yle journalists Susani Mahadura and Yagmur Özberkan to reflect on what being Finnish means.
The duo, whose show Mahadura & Özberkan broadcasts in Finnish on Yle Puhe, said 24h Europe, airing on Yle later in May, spoke to them in terms of how the media forges national identities. The documentary is a 24-hour expedition into the lives of young people living on the European continent.
“Immigrants and racialised youths receive little media coverage. Muslims and other religious groups are often stereotyped and that’s problematic,” Özberkan explained.
Who’s Finnish anyway?
Susani Mahadura was born in Savo, eastern Finland, but traces Sri Lankan roots on her father’s side. Yagmur Özberkan moved to Finland from Turkey at the age of five.
The women said it’s time for some of the outdated terminology used to describe people living in Finland to be expanded.
“On paper my brother is a second-generation immigrant but that’s an absurd idea to me as he is born and raised in Finland,” Mahadura exclaimed. ”There are so many perspectives on being Finnish, and there’s more than one model.”
On their show, Mahadura & Özberkan often challenge Finnish societal structures and taboos, particularly in relation to minorities in Finland.
This spring their award-winning show has dealt with topics such sex rights for the disabled. But the pair said their favourite episode recently explored what it’s like to be a minority within a minority. Guests on the segment included three rainbow youths, a Sami, a Muslim and a Finn of colour.
