Finland: Local Politician Charged with Inciting Racial Hatred…….

Chairman of the Finnish People’s Blue-Whites party, Olavi Mäenpää:
Enough is enough

Castrate them!

Mäenpää in the 2006 TV political debate on YLE: “There was a recent case in which a Kenyan was raping Finnish women, I’ll state it clearly, if I come across someone like that I wouldn’t hestitate for a moment to castrate him. Question: So you approve the use of violence.. Mäenpää, yes, against that kind of trash that’s living here and been living off the taxpayers“.

Here is what Finnish state Radio/TV has to say about it.

On Tuesday hearings opened at the Helsinki District Court in the case of Olavi Mäenpää, a Turku city council member, who faces charges of inciting racial hatred in a public election debate.

The prosecutor accuses Mäenpää of using slanderous and abusive language when speaking of African and Middle Eastern refugees and immigrants at YLE’s parliament election debate two years ago.

The prosecution maintains that in his remarks Mäenpää, a candidate for public office, vastly generalised the characteristics of people belonging to certain ethnic groups. Mäenpäää referred to members of specific ethnic groups as criminals, welfare system abusers and generally less worthy people. The prosecutor asserts that Mäenpää believes it to be acceptable for people to take justice into their own hands when immigrants commit crimes.

Mäenpää, who denies the charges, chalks his election debate remarks up to normal political banter. ”This trial is absurd and preposterous. I voiced my personal opinions during the election debate, and I was not inciting hate agianst any specific group. You can’t be judged on your opinions,” told Mäenpää to YLE ahead of the hearing on Tuesday.

In 2007 Mäenpää stood for election on the ticket of the far-right Finnish People’s Blue-Whites.

But that’s not all!

Look where the spokesman place his party

The 2007 televised debate was between the representative of all the minor parties in Finland. Upon being introduced to the program, they were asked to place their party on a chart divided up into three separate fields, Left, Center, Right, the Finnish People’s Blue-Whites (SKS)spokesman, Olavi Mäenpää, placed his party clearly on the Left.

The Finnish Leftist media deems the Finnish Blue-Whites party to be racist, and then excludes them from the ranks of the Left, though the party’s spokesman knows exactly where their ideological home lies, better than anyone else. See how it’s done? KGS

  1. Even though I don’t support Olavi Mäenpää and I think he’s a genuine bigot, prosecuting him for something he said in an electoral debate two years ago is a travesty of justice.

    Mäenpää speaks like a loudmouthed bigot and behaves like one. Still, he has substantial support, in his home city of Turku, which by the way is perhaps the most culturally enriched city in Finland.

    Videos featuring Mäenpää have been in Youtube for years now and Yle (the Finnish state broadcaster) has not made any attempt in trying to censor those or claim any copyright for them.

    Mäenpää was convicted of incitement against ethnic group for a web article he published in 2001. Mäenpää had published an anti-islamic article and a cartoon in his website and sentenced to pay a fine, which was converted to a 41 day prison sentence.

    Mäenpää had used a term “throat slitters”, which according to the defence attorney referred to the way muslims slaughter sheep. The cartoon depicted an “islamic person”.

    The district court stated that the cartoon was “obscene” and had no factual content.

  2. I don’t agree with his solution to the problem he draws attention to, but at least he is drawing attention to it.

    Years ago a visitor to Helsinki could not help but notice the number of drunks lying around in parks and other public places.

    Years ago Amsterdam was a magnet for hippies and everywhere you looked there were faeces on the footpaths and other public places.

    Now a new problem has emerged in Finland.

    If you were a woman working or travelling around Helsinki or other city areas, what problem of the above would you prefer not to have to confront?

  3. I would have to agree with KGS. This is the Modus Operandi of the Swedish leftist-dominated media as well. State-run media in the hands of obsequious socialist loons and the liberal press, in my opinion, is evil and one of the greatest threats to democracy. Its failure to provide unbiased reporting and lacking in accurate and truthful information, erodes trust, poisons our thoughts and prevents accurate decision making which affects everyone in one way or the other, creating a need to survive through self-directed action rather than through partership and cooperation that is so fundamental in a democracy. Mainstream media in the West has abandoned its primary purpose and evolved into a major player that now influences public and world events rather than informs of them. I don’t want to sound like a petty alarmist, but if things don’t change, we could be heading towards the totalitarian dystopia predicted in George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four, and it doesn’t make me happy at all.

  4. Regarding the positioning of SKS party in the political chart.

    It is the traditional working class supporters of the left who first have to face the consequences of failed immigration policy. And from these ranks people like Mäenpää draw their support. Therefore it is quite understandable that Mäenpää positioned his party left of center.

    Most of the so called “far right” parties in Europe are, in fact, left of center.
