FINLAND: LONG KNIVES COME OUT FOR FINNISH ALTERNATIVE NEWS SITE MVLEHTI……..

It’s rich that the site would be accused of disseminating false news/distortions of the truth, YLE and other big media do that on a regular basis, and never apologize for it. 

I only need to point to YLE itself in how it reported on the Jussi Halla-aho case, and continues to refer to the verdict (to smear) without qualifiers when it reports on Halla-aho in the English version of their site.

Police and prosecutor expand co-operation against MV Lehti

Finnish police have had several complaints about the MV Lehti website, which is accused of publishing false news and promoting hate speech. Those who think they may be the victim of crimes as a result of the website’s content are urged to contact police before the end of the month.

Finnish police have announced that they are working closely with prosecutors to investigate the operations of an alternative news site, MV Lehti, which stands accused of disseminating false information and promoting hate speech.

In a statement on the national police website, police said that they suspect that several articles on the website are baseless, distortions of the truth, or that they infringe copyright.

They have received dozens of complaints about the website, and are currently investigating cases of suspected copyright infringement, libel, aggravated defamation, fundraising crimes and gambling crimes.

The investigation is being co-ordinated by Helsinki police, and has required co-operation with foreign law enforcement agencies.

The site’s founder, Ilja Janitskin, is based in Spain.

Police are asking anyone who believes they may be a victim of crimes related to the website’s articles to contact them during May.

NOTE: Finland has it’s own versions of the National Enquirer that do engage in exactly what they are claiming against MVLehti. Also, since the site uses Jew hater, Juha Kärkkäinen’s material, that alone relegates the site to the trash bin.

FINLAND: MINISTRY OF CULTURE AND EDUCATION TO COMBAT ”HATE SPEECH” AND RACISM…….

What should scare you to death is the government dictating to you what is, and isn’t, ”correct speech”.

And increasingly, the government uses the word racism incoherently, like: Ikä rasisimi (age discrimination). Age is no more a race than Islam is, yet they’ll use the word racism in conjunction with anti-Islam criticism.

Education and Culture Ministry launches campaign to combat racism, hate speech

Education and Culture Minister Sanni Grahn-Laasonen is to lead her ministry in a 10-point programme designed to combat racism and hate speech. The campaign will target areas such as training for education officials, youth outreach and inter-faith dialogue.

Education and Culture Minister Sanni Grahn-Laasonen will take the lead in a programme aimed at combating and preventing hate speech and racism.

The 10-point programme will involve measures such as training for teaching professionals, youth outreach and inter-faith dialogue.

“Hate speech and racism are absolutely things we should condemn. No one should have to live in an environment in which people openly deny others an equal place as a member of society. The mood in Finland has changed and that demands work,” Grahn-Laasonen said in a ministry release.

The programme will also involve emphasising media criticism as part of education and teaching. Municipal youth outreach programmes will also receive specialised assistance for the project, in a bid to prevent hate speech and promote equality.

The Ministry of Education and Culture will also fund education programmes to help young people learn to recognise and prevent racism and hate speech and to intervene in related incidents.

“Teaching professionals will especially be trained to engage in difficult discussions on issues such as hate speech, racist behaviour and signs of radicalisation,” the statement said.

FINNISH JOURNALIST UNION GOES FULL ORWELLIAN: “TAKE OUR OATH FOR UPHOLDING CORRECT SPEECH ON SOCIAL MEDIA”……

Every single one of them should be forced to sit through Flemming Rose’s presentation in Helsinki, and multiple times.

1984 not an instruction manual

#sananvastuuvala  translates to #responsiblespeechoath

Union of Journalists # sananvastuuvala campaign brings together communicators who respect truth and human dignity. To participate you only need one posting in social media.

Freedom of speech is sometimes mistaken for the liberty to say anything without any consequences. However, freedom of expression involves responsibility for your own writings.

A responsible communicator respects truth and human dignity.

Now you can participate in responsible freedom of expression by emphasising the #responsiblespeechoath campaign on social media such as on Facebook or on Twitter.

The oath reads as follows:

I express myself by respecting human rights. Hate speech will not silence me. I take full responsibility for my words. #sananvastuuvala (#responsiblespeechoath)


Sharing the oath constitutes acceptance of responsibility in what you say, for example, in the media, on social networks or in discussion forums.

At the same time remind others of the importance of responsible communication.

You can challenge a colleague, friend or anyone you want to join. You do not have to work in the media industry to share the oath.

DO THIS:

There are several options:

  • You can share your oath as plain text as an update on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Alongside the oath publish a photo of yourself holding in your hand, a new copy of Journalist (6/2016, Published on Thursday 28.4.) In the centerfold will be a page, where it says #sananvastuuvala. If you do not have the magazine, you can print the hashtag # sananvastuuvala- website (attached to this text, different options), or write it on your own paper.

image update, #sananvastuuvala

  • You can also read the oath in the video at the same time, when you hold your hand for example. Sananvastuuvala # journalistic found on hashtag (The same oath reads on the second page).

Broadcaster ZDF told reporters on Tuesday that Thursday’s edition of Böhmermann’s show Neo Magazin Royale had been cancelled because of “massive public pressure”.

Regional newspaper Rheinische Post reported that Böhmermann is now under police guard at his home in Cologne.

“We are evaluating the current situation and are in contact with the security services,” a Cologne police spokesman told the newspaper.

Earlier on Tuesday, Chancellor Angela Merkel faced accusations she had made a “big mistake” by failing to support Böhmermann’s artistic freedom in the stand-off with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“It was a big mistake that is hopefully causing her pain,” Oliver Welke, presenter of Friday-night satirical news show “heute show”, told Bild.

Germany’s constitution guarantees “freedom of expression, academia and of course the arts,” Merkel emphasized in remarks on Tuesday.

“These values apply regardless of all the political problems that we discuss with each other. And that includes the issue of refugees,” the Chancellor said.

Christian who gave prayer book to Muslim loses tribunal appeal

By Antony Bushfield

A Christian NHS worker suspended for giving a prayer book to her Muslim colleague has lost her appeal against an initial tribunal ruling.

Victoria Wasteney, 39, was found guilty by her NHS employer in 2014 of “harassing and bullying” a work friend for giving her a book about a Muslim woman’s encounter with Christianity, praying with her and asking her to church.

She was suspended for nine months and given a written warning, even though the woman had been happy to discuss faith with her and never gave evidence about her allegations to the NHS.

Ms Wasteney, a senior occupational therapist, challenged the decision by East London NHS Foundation Trust at an employment tribunal last year, but it ruled that her employer had not discriminated against her.

YOUTUBE REINSTATES PMW CHANNEL AFTER TAKING IT DOWN FOR ‘HATE SPEECH’…….

Highlighting incitement to inform people about it, is not purposefully disseminating it for promotion.

This has happened to Itamar Markus before.

Brian @Israellycool: As of just this moment, it seems that the main PMW channel (here) has been re-instated. The big question for Google now is how does this kind of thing happen and what steps will they put in place to stop it happening again?

Dear PMW subscribers,

Following Palestinian Media Watch‘s release of a video on Thursday in which a Palestinian girl read a poem on official PA TV calling for “war that will smash the oppressor and destroy the Zionist’s soul,” YouTube “terminated” PMW’s account for violating their “terms of service,” which includes hate speech. The terminated account contains nearly all of PMW’s videos.

We urge anyone with contacts at Google or YouTube to contact them and request that PMW’s account be reinstated. Others can send a message to YouTube by clicking the “Send feedback” link at the bottom of YouTube’s homepage.

YouTube removes Palestinian Media Watch account

Watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch YouTube account closed following a post of a girl reading a poem inciting to ‘destroy the Zionist soul’, which violates ban on hateful content.

Alexander J. Apfel, TPS Published: 03.06.16, 22:16 / Israel News

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) had its YouTube account removed on Sunday, March 6, after the video site said it had violated terms of service.

PMW, which monitors and exposes incitement in Palestinian media, last posted a video to YouTube on Thursday. The video showed a Palestinian girl reading a poem on official Palestinian Authority television calling for a “war that will smash the oppressor and destroy the Zionist soul.”

According to PMW, YouTube entirely shut down the group’s primary account. A check of the portal on Sunday night, March 6, showed that it was gone, with text announcing: “This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.”

 According to Itamar Marcus, PMW’s founder and director, YouTube has removed PMW material in the past on the grounds that it constituted hateful content.

FINLAND: MAINSTREAM MEDIA CAMPAIGN FOR CENSORSHIP…….

Finland has always had a knee-jerk penchant for practicing self censorship. 

There is no such thing a ”hate speech’‘, but only speech you agree or disagree with. “Sticks and stone may break my bones but names can never harm me”. If children are taught early on to pay no attention to those who belittle them, they will not be affected as much as today’s pansies who cry foul at the drop of a hat.

Hate speech affects mental health

Hate speech and harassment to have been affected by it in the mental health and sense of security, says the Ministry of Justice make this statement.

The report was accompanied by the representatives of sexual, ethnic and religious minorities, immigrants and people with disabilities.

More than half of survey respondents told of avoiding some places because of fear of receiving hate speech or harassment. One in three said they tried avoiding some places with loved ones.

Hate speech and harassment is encountered most frequently in the streets, in parks and other public places. It is typically verbal name-calling or humiliation. The doers are mostly unknown.

Second, the most common hate speech received is on the Internet, especially on social media and in public forums.

For example, migrants told the survey outward appearances or foreign language causes degrading hate speech, sexual minorities that include women and men have had sexual harassment.

Only a small proportion of the respondents had told their experiences hate speech to the authorities. Most reported that authorities did not believe in doing anything about it.

The report does not take a position on whether the experiences of respondents are punishable hate speech.

This is the first report on hate speech in Finland. In the future, one is supposed to do every four years.

DENMARK: LEADER OF DANISH PEGIDA ARRESTED FOR WEARING T-SHIRT TELLING NAME OF LARS HEDEGAARD’S WOULD BE ASSASSIN……..

You read that right…..

BASIL-HASSAN WANTED BY DANISH POLICE1

 

The terrorist who attempted to murder Lars Hedegaard a couple of years ago and fled the country, is being protected by the Danish state. They’ve decreed that the name of the terrorist, Basil Hassan, shall not be identified, something of which Hedegaard has rejected, and has disseminated his name via Facebook and elsewhere. Now he’s on trial for violating a statute.

Enter Tania, the Danish leader of PEGIDA who wore in protest, not only the name of Basil Hassan, but his picture as well, into the courtroom and was promptly arrested by the authorities. These are the heroes of our times, the brave souls that stand up to the lunacy that has taken grip of societies throughout the West, and expose it for all to see.

Denmark: Woman arrested for wearing anti-terror t-shirt
VICTOR LASZLO
REBEL COMMENTATOR

Tania, the leader of classical-liberal opposition group against totalitarian Islam and cultural Marxism, was arrested today for wearing a T shirt with a name on it, while attending a court procedure for Lars Hedigaard.

Denmark, the one stand-out from its nearby neighbors who are rapidly slipping into an Orwellian state of enforced thought and speech crimes, seems to be not that far behind after all.

Add this to the man in Denmark in February of this year who was recently fined for a Facebook post critical of Islam and you start to see a policy.

Tania went to court in Copenhagen to support Lars. In Feb. 2013, a Muslim immigrant attempted to assassinate Mr. Hedegaard for speaking his mind about Islam and its doctrines and effects on Western civilization.

Lars had been told not to say the name of the person who had tried to murder him, Basil Hassan, or show his picture to anyone.

But like any thinking person, Lars realized the odds of people catching Mr. Hassan would be considerably higher if people knew his name and what he looked like, given that he was on the loose and trying to kill him.

The police leapt into action and arrested Lars Hedegaard for this breach of his attempted killer’s rights. Tania and other supporters of his, wore T shirts with the name “Basil Hassan” on it in the court this morning as a show of support for Lars.

The rest was highly predictable even if highly disturbing.

NETHERLANDS: MAN WEARING PIG HAT ARRESTED BY POLICE…….

This is a clear example of the state ”being offended” for a group that had not even registered a complaint.

Very much like how Finns MEP, Jussi Halla-aho, was victimized by the Finnish state for daring to challenge a state ombudsman for minorities, by pointing out how the state’s prosecutor’s office uses different criteria in bringing charges against people for so called ”hate crimes”. Unflattering speech leveled at Finns by the Finnish media is ok, while similar speech leveled at minorities, a crime punishable by fines and jail.

SWEDEN: DAGENS NYHETER DEMANDS FACEBOOK TO CLAMP DOWN ON SPEECH IT DOESN’T LIKE…….

But first, Flemming Rose, who in his seminal speech in Helsinki 2015, laid the issue bare for all to see: 

Major Swedish Newspaper Demands Facebook Censor ‘Offensive’ Posts

Sweden’s second largest newspaper – Dagens Nyheter – has claimed that Facebook must address concerns about sexist, homophobic and xenophobic content, and that the social media site must actively work to censor comments from users that fall under the broad rubric of “hate speech”.

According to the paper’s cultural affairs journalist Bjorn Wiman: “The large network company’s refusal to publicly respond to questions about these guidelines – and our acceptance of this silence – is one of the greatest scandals,” he wrote in an editorial for the newspapers website DN.se. 

Facebook and other big network companies still have the ability to clean up in this quagmire of sexism, racism and serious threats of violence. That they do not is incomprehensible,”  he continues while simultaneously talking about how Sweden has had freedom of the press for 250 years enshrined into law, decades before the American first amendment that guarantees free speech and freedom of the press.

“The events in Stockholm a few weeks ago, when a lynch mob pulled through the city in search of people with “foreign” appearance, shows what it looks like when internet hate is stepping out into the street,” he claims in response to native Swedes who patrolled the Stockholm train station, which by witness accounts has transformed into a centre for migrants who sexually harass women and young girls and often get into violent encounters with young Swedish men and even police.

Facebook, he laments, has become a haven for people to express views that are contrary to popular opinion. He describes threats of sexual assault, threats of violence, and even murder. Mr. Wiman says that anyone who reports harassment of a sexual or violent nature is simply ignored by Facebook even though it clearly violates the Facebook terms of service (TOS). Wiman makes no specific examples of harassment either to himself or anyone in particular however.

His views represent a growing crowd of European left wing, pro migrant journalists who want to curb free speech in the name of political correctness by claiming harassment by users online. German journalist Dunja Hayali, also a fiercely pro migrant reporter, accused Facebook users of harassment and a German judge threatened her critics with a €250,000 fine if they continued to comment on her Facebook page.

UK Police Arrest Man For ‘Offensive’ Facebook Post About Migrants

British police have promised not to tolerate any speech that could cause offence on social media regarding Syrian migrants, after arresting a man for Facebook comments made about recent arrivals on his small Scottish Island.

The tiny Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, which had a total population of just 6,498 in 2011, is expected to take in around 1,000 Syrian migrants, with 12 families already arriving since December last year (picture above).

However, commenting on the comparatively huge and sudden influx of Muslim immigrants online just became a very risky business for local residents.

Police have confirmed they have arrested a 41-year-old local man under the Communications Act, after receiving a report of a supposedly “offensive” comment made on Facebook regarding the migrants.

A police spokesman was unequivocal, that any harsh criticism of the Muslim influx would not be “tolerated”. Inspector Ewan Wilson from Dunoon police office told the Guardianfollowing the arrest:

“I hope that the arrest of this individual sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of activity which could incite hatred and provoke offensive comments on social media”.

Man Threatened With €250,000 Fine For Criticising Pro Migration Journalist 

According to German media an unnamed man has been told by a German court that if he continues to post on the Facebook wall or has any contact with pro-mass migration journalist Dunja Hayali he will be fined €250,000. The Hamburg regional court declined to tell media what comments the man made to provoke the state-enforced censorship, according to Web.De.

Ms. Hayali recently won a “Golden Camera” award for her reporting for German state TV channel ZDF, which recently launched an Arabic-language service as well as subtitling Chancellor Angela Merkel’s New Year’s address in the language.

In Ms. Hayali’s acceptance speech, she argued against “xenophobia” and “right wing” ideas, no doubt confirming her as a darling of the German media establishment. She reacted to her critics saying ,”If you make racist comments, then you are f*cking racist.”

Ms. Hayali is known as having an extremely pro-migrant stance. As the daughter of Iraqi migrants she is regarded by German media like Tagesspiel as “probably the most famous German TV face – with an immigrant background,” and she is described as an “ambassador” for the group “Show Your Face” who “fight against the right”.

“Show Your Face” is a group dedicated to outing opposition to the Merkel government and to what they perceive as “hatred” and xenophobia.

The organisation’s managing director Rebecca Weis argues that political persecution of their opposition is required to keep migrants safe from violence, by associating all critics of asylum with banned groups. Weis, in an interview with German media, said after a visit to Heidenau along with Ms. Hayali in August of last year, “We went to Heidenau to strengthen the youth. Many are very insecure and feel threatened – from the extreme right, not by the refugees.”
