Abdirahim Husu Hussein: A focused candidate with clear goals for Finland

by , under Enrique Tessieri

Abdirahim Husu Hussein is no stranger to Miglrant Tales. He has written a number of times for us and we have followed his political career with keen interest. “Husu” as he’s known to his friends and acquaintances is a Center Party candidate running for parliament who is focused and determined to reach his goals.

Finland holds parliamentary elections on April 19 and different polls predict the Center Party emerging as the big winner.

Contrary to some other Finnish candidates who were born elsewhere, Husu has never given up his ideals or accommodated his values to serve those in power. Finland needs people like Husu in parliament especially these days when anti-immigration rhetoric and bigotry are spreading throughout Europe and Finland.

Husu said that number 13 was his lucky number.

“I’m enjoying this campaign despite the harassment that I’ve received because I’m a Muslim and because of my ethnic background,” he said. “Considering that such people write such things shows that they must be extremely unhappy. I wish I could help and relieve their pain.”

Husu’s campaign is based on three premises: family, employment and internationalization.

“I’m against cutbacks in child support because they would affect the most vulnerable families like migrants,” he said. “Ten euros can be a lot of money for such families.”

The Center Party candidate said he’s worried about how social inequality has grown in Finland. Cutting child support would only worsen matters, according to him.

Employment is another important campaign theme. Husu said that the future of Finland not only hinges on large multinational companies but on small- and medium-sized ones.

“We should do more to lower taxes on small- and medium-sized companies,” he said. “There are some 200,000 of these types of companies in this country. If each one would hire one unemployed person it would mean an 80% reduction in the jobless rate.”

Husu said that Finland should take better advantage and find synergies with foreign students that study here since many of them could open up new export markets and jobs for Finnish companies.

“Internationalization is very important,” he said. “Without it we wouldn’t be able to grow as a country. Our success as a nation depends on how successful we are at expanding into new global markets.”

One of the many important messages that Husu has as our society becomes more culturally diverse is the importance of encouraging a spirit of “us” as opposed to “them.”

“In the next thirty years I see two possible scenarios evolving in Finland,” he continued. “One of these is of a country that is growing economically and where unemployment has fallen to under 5% or altogether. The other is where populism grows and where politicians are blaming migrants and minorities for the country’s problems. In such a country there’s little economic growth.”

Husu said he’s an optimist and sees the former scenario having a better chance of success than the later one.

“We should speak out against intolerance because it’s harmful to our country,” he concluded. “If a politician or any other public official with power has such issues that person should be challenged and forced to find work elsewhere.”

    Guess which one of these we have open doors immigration you want to advocate. Its the latter one. The more you push your multicultural agenda, more you want to undermine our culture and traditions, more popular the “populist” parties become. Why? Because the open door policy means immigrant enclaves, riots and increasing influence of radical Islamism.

    “We should speak out against intolerance because it’s harmful to our country,” he concluded. “If a politician or any other public official with power has such issues that person should be challenged and forced to find work elsewhere.”

    Multiculturalism in definitely a new communism. Noble looking ideology that many fall in love with but one that fails in horrible way in practice. It will fail in couple of decades like communism but the problems caused by it will last for a long time.

    What Husu said sounds like he wants purgies like communists did. “Issues with intolerance” will be the new “anti-communism” that justify kicking out people that don’t agree with the multiculturalist.

    How are you going to define the “intolerance” so it can’t be abused to smoke out selected individuals? You are intolerant if you want to have any limits to immigration?

      Why is cultural diversity a threat to you? How is multiculturalism a new form of communism? The fact is that our society is becoming ever-culturally diverse and, therefore, we must learn to live and benefit together for the common good. I trust Husu because he’s a Somali and had to fight his way to get where he’s now. He’s a totally different breed of politician than Hetemaj, who is white and therefore is wishy-washy in her views.

      Intolerance is a diplomatic word for racism, bigotry, discrimination and other social ills…

      “Why is cultural diversity a threat to you?”

      I have explained this to you a million times. “Cultural diversity” is used to undermine my culture and my traditions. Every time one of our traditions gets swept under the rug, it is told to be done because of “cultural diversity”.

      “How is multiculturalism a new form of communism?”

      I just told you. Ideology that many have started to believe in. Much like many who spied for soviet union. They were bought off by the seemingly great ideology of communism, but the truth was a lot different. Many are now undermining European countries and traditions because of their child like believe of greatness of multiculturalism.

      ” I trust Husu because he’s a [hidden because of stupid moderation] and had to fight his way to get where he’s now. He’s a totally different breed of politician than Hetemaj, who is white and therefore is wishy-washy in her views. ”

      HAHAHA. You really show why multiculturalism fails. You trust him because he is a minority S and non-white. So can I say I trust someone because he is a finn and a white? Its not racism? In any case, you think society is going to work well when we vote based on ethnic lines?

      “Intolerance is a diplomatic word for racism, bigotry, discrimination and other social ills…”

      Once again, how can you define them in a way that it does not become selective? Did you showed intolerance with saying you trust someone because he is not white? Or is intolerance reserved just for those that want to limit immigration?

      Let’s look at the first question: How does cultural diversity undermine your cultural traditions? Why can’t they live side by side with other traditions?

      Could you give some specific cases?

    • Yossie

      You tell me, if I remember right it was you who was really upset that suvivirsi wasn’t banned out in schools.

    • Yossie

      Really, what would happen is that in public space the culture would get lowered to the smallest common denominator. It would mean in schools there would be no Christmas plays or anything that some fanatic can claim to offend his religion or culture. In private space we would have enclaves of similar people living with their own. That means finnish culture would get undermined in immigrant areas and public space.

      You might want to address the other issues I raised.
