Thanks to two friends, I was able to watch a “Welcome to Finland” video funded by the Finnish and Swedish film boards as well as the Nordic Children and Youth Committee. Writes Ilona: “You don’t need to speak the [Finnish] language to understand the depth of shameful, racist humiliation being enacted here.”
You can watch the “Welcome to Finland” Doxwise video here.
The video makes fun of an Afghani asylum seeker on hunger strike since September 10.
”We are going to support these hungry refugees which are on hunger strike because they think that criminals and shit heads and rapists shouldn’t be deported under any circumstances from Finland because it’s inhumane,” says one of the men.
The three men start grilling chicken and bacon next to an Afghan who is cold and on hunger strike. Apparently the men understand that he is a Muslim who doesn’t eat pork. One of the many foolish things that the men do is get drunk and streak naked in the video.
So let me get this straight: Tax-payers’ money was used to make fun of Afghan refugees on hunger strike in front of Parliament? Moreover, the whole project was planned on the anti-immigration Hommaforum website.
The only reason why such a video could be made is because these men aren’t refugees from a war-ravaged country.
Would they dare make a video mocking white Finnish women in a sexist and humiliating manner?
I doubt it.
Thank you Ilona and Ruth for the heads-up.
