Extremism in Finland and elsewhere grows on the same soil of hatred

The video clip blow is a frightening example of how far-right groups like the Nazi Party of the United States use the First Amendment (freedom of speech) to justify their hate speech. While it’s unlikely that the Perussuomalaiset (PS) party or even Muutos 2011 and Vapauspuolue will have summer camps with Nazi flags and members dressed in SS-like gear, they do believe in racial purity and loathe Muslims.

Even if these parties may not go to such extremes as the American Nazi Party to drive home their message, there is always a probability it may lead to that if the time is right. If we listen to PS MPs like James Hirvisaari or Juho Eerola and read what Jussi Halla-aho has written about Muslims, a big question mark emerges.

It would be naive and foolish to brush aside these Suomen Sisu members as an innocent group. Even if they do not carry Nazi flags their thoughts and visions of Finland are in the same ball park as some white supremest groups in the United States and Europe. People express themselves different culturally even though they believe in the same ideological goals.

Suomen Sisu, of which Halla-aho and his cronies are members of the far-right association, recommend reading Alfred Rosenberg, a Nazi war criminal hanged in Nuremberg, and are against Finns marrying foreigners.

Susan Canedy, author, America’s Nazis says in the video clip tells us what Nazi Germany promised its people: “Adolf Hitler when he went to jail and wrote Mein Kampf  wrote what he knew: anti-Semitism was rampant and rife in Germany. What Hitler was able to do was capitalize on that unhappiness and throw some bones. Will you accept anti-Semitism if I give you a job? If I give you a uniform? If I give you a way of life? If I give you something to hang on to, something to bring our children up in and make you feel proud and make you enjoy your life in your community would you do that? Seventy million people did that.”

The video clip may be offensive to some. Migrant Tales recommends viewer discretion.


The face of fascism has changed but the policies of such a political system are still out there. Today’s fascists, which  could be called Counter-Jihadists, despise Muslims as much as the Nazis hated the Jews.

It’s the same ogre with different clothing.

      Hannu, thank you for the list. I wrote a blog entry about how important it was for Multicultural Finns to accept themselves. Why is it so hard for Suomen Sisu to do the same? Suomen Sisu is a Finnish version of a white supremist group. In Finland being white supremist means hating Muslims and visible foreigners. Worse, they live in the nineteenth century in their racial theories and recommend against Finns marrying foreigners. That type of public statement is an insult to all the Finns with multicultural backgrounds in this country.

      So, Hannu, accept yourself. It is the first important step.

    The list of books looks looks quite interesting. I’d perhaps add Mao’s “On guerilla warfare” to accompany Sun Tzu & friends in the philosophy section (and maybe Caesar’s “Commentaries on the Gallic war”), and Rousseau’s “On social contract” to somewhere. I haven’t read Rosenberg, so I can’t comment if the book has any merit – not everything needs to be written by a nice person in a book list with heavy reading (heck, I just recommended Mao).

    However, the racial section looks suspiciously well represented. It’s OK to have differing and unorthodox view points presented in a list that’s meant to be thought provoking, but that sort of weighting certainly starts to look like the preference of the list writer.

      You didn’t answer if you are a Suomen Sisu member, Hannu.

      Suomen Sisu like Jussi Halla-aho and his cronies want to stop immigration from outside Europe, especially Muslims and Africans. They don’t say this outloud because it would expose their extremist views. However they say this everytime they bash Muslims and claim that “multiculturalism” must be banned.

      I’ve said this before Hannu: Hommaforum and people like Halla-aho are not good for your self-esteem. All these sites and people do is give a person with low self-esteem the feeling of superiority. That superiority is nothing more than a house of cards.

      Here is a wayback machine to see what Suomen Sisu is all about: http://web.archive.org/web/20090224103407/http://www.suomensisu.org/
