How rape statistics reveal a serious problem: racism and prejudice

by , under Enrique

You know there is something fishy whenever any person starts to use percentages to drive home the point that immigrants are rapists. If anything, rape statistics do reveal a problem: racism and prejudice. 

One blogger on Uusi Suomi writes: ”In April, Finns were told that men from xxxx  are guilty of committing rape alarmingly often.” Using a tabloid story as a source, he states that in 2006-09 34% of all convicted rapes were by foreigners.

There are some serious problems with the conclusions of the tabloid never mind the writer:

  • How many foreigners were convicted of rape?
  • Are we speaking of an ”alarmingly high” amount?

In the Uusi Suomi blog entry, Perussuomalaiset (PS) MP James Hirvisaari, who was fined in December for inciting ethnic hatred, believes that 25 rape convictions during the first five months of the year is enough proof to close our borders.

Hirvisaari writes:  “We don’t need ‘free movement’ since it only brings too many problems and forms part of the left-wing agenda to undermine the nation-state.  ’Let’s do away with borders and mix different nationalities.’ Border control and immigration policy should be contrarily tightened.”

Here is some of Hirvisaari’s latest double-talk on his latest blog entry:  “Multiculturalism is a destroying politicial ideology, which does not fit in a [culturally] diverse society.”*

Yes, that’s right, such a comment was made by a Finnish MP based on 25 rape convictions during the first five months of the year!

If anything, rape statistics reveal a serious problem: a society’s racism and prejudice.

    So if I understand correctly there were 25 rape cases committed by foreigners and you are more concerned about Mr. Hirvisaaris comments than the rising sexual violence rates?

    You are right though that as MP he could choose to consider his words a little bit more carefully.

    Oh, yes, that’s it, we don’t care about women or their rights, only about foreigners, and if foreigners are committing rapes, then we MUST stand up to defend the foreigners! Does that sound about right, MK? I can see why you would think only an idiot would think this. But ask yourself, is it really what we think?

    You are right though that as MP he could choose to consider his words a little bit more carefully.

    You mean not to reveal his prejudices so obviously. Everyone knows that you have be more covert nowadays!
