Smelly media: Trying not to speak of the unspeakable

For three, four months now, after reading news articles on the low prosecution on rape and the real victims of war, I've been thinking of reporting on my beef with the media, especially in a way it talks about men, and how we are so evil, but also in the context of Finnish people. 

Today, I open my rss reader and read the news about the increased support for immigrant student quotas in schools, so I decided to group together related news, quote some parts, and try to speak my mind without entering the hate speech laws, which somehow do not apply to someone saying "the Finns are filthy lazy scumbags", but applies to someone saying "honor killings are not done by native Finns". Since there have been no reported honor killings in Finland, my statement is a fact and should provide cover for my hairy ass. 

I will try to move chronologically from 2011 to 2010.



Nearly half of Finnish teachers believe that the proportion of immigrant children in any one class should be limited to 20-30 percent.

Wonder why? Is it their own experience? Have they been in contact with teacher from other european countries which are decades ahead in the issue, and are following advice which stems from valid concerns? Or maybe, (sarcasm:on) they are just being racist? (sarcasm:off) 

Most of the respondents said that they had not received training in the teaching of immigrants. 

Well, this is a good way to evade the inevitable "you are a racist" attack that will come from the oh-so-tolerant circles. 



The populist party’s support has risen strongly in recent weeks, putting them within touching distance of the big three parties: the Social Democrats, the Centre Party and the National Coalition Party. 

Even if I do not agree with their tax and welfare policies, I would possibly be among the 16% and rising group that will vote for the True Finns, if I were a Finn. 

This is Finland. From Finnish ancestry. The Finns have a right to vote for their own benefit. 

And calling the True Finns populist is really neglecting the utter populism of the leftist parties. More welfare, more free this, more free that, and yet more free this. What is more populist? Saying the institutions of Finland should look after the Finns first, or promising more free ___insert noun__.

Of course in my case I would like to include "People living in the country, holding a job and not breaking the law or causing unrest" to the benefitting group. 



Got no comment except that the pizzeria was not owned by an Italian.

The book  Maassa maan tavalla (When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do), published on Wednesday, gives a voice to immigration critics. Non-fiction writer Milla Hannula traces the rise and development of criticism against immigration since the 1970s. 

A Finnish Thilo Sarrazin? Have not read the book, nor followed news on it. We will see once he gets a fatva to his head or is denounced from public discourse.

And of course the news has to be accompanied by how difficult the immigrants have it here. Can't have one side of the opinion shown, can we?



 Experts are concerned about the trend of increasingly separate residential areas largely occupied by immigrants. Differences, they say, are growing between "good" and "bad" neighbourhoods.

Care to publish the crime statistics in these different neighborhoods? It would give us a better picture on the results, relations and correlations of what is happening. 

According to immigration experts who met in Helsinki on Monday, residential areas should be constructed in such a way that different populations groups are mixed and separate concentrations of immigrants would not arise.

Wonder if these immigration experts have asked the native Finns about their thoughts. (The answer is given in an earlier news post, coming below)

 Another reason that has to be considered is people of immigrant background, those who need social contact and want to live among people who they can interact with and whom they can also trust," says Hasan Habib.

So, it turns out the problem is not discrimination. It is choice. The immigrants want to live amongst their own. So simple as that.

One gets to ask, why did you emigrate. Especially to a place where you cannot trust the natives... I thought you ran away from the resulting civilization of your own culture; you don't run away from something you trust. And the Finns are suddenly not trustworthy? You trust your own people who kind of screwed up your birthplace more than you trust the Finns who welcomed you with; ok, maybe not so open arms, but still...

Why should the Finns trust immigrants who openly have this attitude?

According to these experts, in order to prevent ghettoization, cities should build residential areas where there is a balance of public housing, rental housing and both inexpensive and expensive housing for sale. This would counteract a concentration of social problems, unemployment and poverty in certain areas.

Call me what you will. If I am dishing out more than 5000 euros per squaremeter for a house,- which I can't afford right now anyway - , i definitely ain't gonna live in a neighborhood surrounded by "public housing" or "inexpensive housing", nor will I let my kids go to school in an area that is surrounded by such.

As a related note, anybody follow the news in Netherlands where native Dutch are forced to send their children to far away schools with a high number of different ethnicities instead of the local schools wtih a high percentage of native kids? Reason being that the ethnic majority schools are too ethnic...  Tyranny of Tolerance comes to mind. 



To be made use of in the context:


...224.000 unemployed, approximately 8.4% of the workforce


Add 5000 engineers, designers, project managers to the unemployed...


These are also educated/skilled workers.


...165 in finland. Again skilled/educated workers

So the available pool of resources which was already small to begin with, is dwindling.



Back to the topic:


So, 16% of the people are not willing to freely distribute the wealth and independence gained by their forefathers' blood and sweat.

The rise is dramatic, and it will continue, to what I think has a cap at 30-35%. 

This rise may not be good for me personally, but I think the Finns have the right to choose a political party that states it will benefit Finns first and foremost. 



So tell me again: Why should a foreigner, working his ass off, obeying the laws, holding a valid visa, having dealt with all the police issues to get that visa, paying his taxes show any sympathy for a person who broke the laws the second he/she entered the borders, is illegally here, has no input to the society and is leaching off the hard working foreigner's sweaty produce ?

This law abiding foreigner must be stupid to obey the laws.

You do not see Amnesty International lobbying for the problems of the engineers who came to the country legally. No, no, that must be against human rights. 

You do not see Amnesty International lobbying for the problems of the construction workers who came to the country legally. No, no, that must be against human rights. 

You do not see Amnesty International lobbying for the problems of the bus drivers who came to the country legally. No, no, that must be against human rights. 

You do not see Amnesty International lobbying for the problems of the ___insert description___ who came to the country legally. No, no, that must be against human rights. 



In recent years, Finland’s largest cities have developed areas where more than a fifth of the population is of foreign origin. In these city parts, the changeability of people is great, and the original Finnish population continues to decrease.

So, are the Finns moving out the racists? Or is there some other factor in play? Is it just a legal choice? Is it a valid choice? 

What if, just like the immigrants want to live with other immigrants, with people they can trust (said by an immigrants' spokesman, in a link close to the top), the Finns want to live with other Finns? 

I sell my house, I move out. Got something to say? Oh yea, the poor immigrants are now living in a heavily immigrant populated neighborhood. I thought they did not trust the Finns as much as their own countrymen? So this must be a good thing? Call me confused... It was what they wanted in the first place. To live with people they turst. 

Crime rates going up? Like through the roof; in those areas.

Damn, it must be the fault of the Finns who moved out. 

Evil Evil Finn Trolls...

 In fact, there are more people with foreign backgrounds leaving immigrant-heavy areas compared with the number of Finns moving out. However, as both sections of the population are replaced mostly by new immigrants, the number of Finns continues to diminish in these areas.

1. Maybe Finns were born and grew up in those neighborhoods, and are finding it hard to move

2. Maybe Finns, not helped by the vast net of welfare are having a hard time to make ends meet, so as to move away.

3. Maybe the immigrants are well educated in the loopholes of the system.

4. Maybe immigrants do not want to live with other immigrants. 

5. Ok, some immigrants do make a good living. If they are honest, my hat goes off my head, in respect. 

Immigrants with low income levels will continue to live in areas with city-owned rental housing, while Finns continue to leave areas, which are known to have many immigrants.


Fascism will be taking away of this choice. 



The chief reason for the increase is that the number of immigrants exceeded that of emigrants by 13,000.

Looks like the number 13.000 is very close to the yearly abortion numbers in the last 20 years. (Yes, I think this is worthy of bold text)

So same number of immigrants are given right to live in finland where yearly 10-14 thousand Finns were denied a life. 

The immgirants are "needed for the workforce" some claim. Well, the unborns would have been that workforce by now.

Interesting coincidence. (Ok, the percentage of abortion is average, nothing special there.)

Yup, that is what the finnish forefathers died for in the wars with Russia, and Sweden, and as cannon fodder in the wars between Russia and Sweden. 

"I am dying so my unborn grandchildren will never be born.., only replaced"



Nothing to see, move on... Except;

Director of Vantaa’s psychological and social services Anna Cantell-Forsbom says that there is a shortage of good quality, spacious housing for the often large refugee families. 

And Finns are on the whole giving birth to 1.86 children per woman (YLE). It is safe to assume that this number is raised by the extensive participation of foreign (half foreign) families in the breeding effort. 

Hmm... so while the Finns are having a hard time, usually economically, raising even two kids per family, "refugee families" are "often" "large"... And the Finns, not having more than two kids themselves, should show sympathy for the needs of the ones who race with hamsters in the category of "birth rate"? To be honest, I am surprised that they show so much sympathy, understanding and support. As a person of two backgrounds I can say that this is not the case where some of these large families originate from. 

Ever consider that some of the problems facing this "" population is the baby making without first at least being able to provide food and shelter to the unborn?



Many local people think it does not matter where the town gets its income. But some of the town’s 13 000 residents do not agree. As an example, the town council has received a new initiative where local people demand immigrant expenses to be made public. This, they say, is so that taxpayers know where their money is going.

It all ends if/when the economy goes south. Once the food is not bountiful, the heating is not free, then you can change the quantitative adjectives above. Like, "many local" turns into "few local"; "some of the town's residents" turns into "most of the town's resident", and so on. 

One cannot but stop and wonder how many of those 13.000 speak in which way when in private. 

According to the social services in the town, Lieksa paid some 1.5 million euros in expenses for its immigrants last year. However, as the state will pay these expenses for the first three years, Lieksa has already made a 200,000-euro profit from welcoming immigrants so far. The town expects to make a similar profit this year.

Well, social services benefit from the influx, hell, they were hired due to it. 

Call me stupid, but I see a 1.3 million euro loss for this year, plus a loss of jobs and unobtined benefits/service,  and with the amounts mentioned, a total of 900.000 euros in the negative, after the government stops subsidizing the municipality after three years. 

But hey, social services is making profit. 



This will change, fast.

There is one historical rule:

"diversity + proximity = war"; in case of schools and youth, change "war" to "strife", "bullying", "grouping"

In the case of schools, look at Holland, look at France, Belgium, Sweden; look at any european school that has embraced diversity as the main value. 

Case closed. 



Why is it always considered a bad thing when one group of people want to protect their livelyhood?

Is fascism protecting your livelyhood,


Is fascism forcing someone to give up/share their livelyhood to their own detriment.

Maybe someone can explain this to me, as I am just asking out of curiosity, not stating anything, or not giving an opinion. (Whipes sweat from the forehead)


A side story:

As for the image of "peaceful immigrant", or "immigrants flocking together", 

Comes to mind: The middle easterner who smashed his forehead into the drunk Finn's nose because the Finn called him "Nigger"; not because the Finn called him "Nigger", but because "I am not a f#¤king Nigger"

Comes to mind: The twenty or so middle easterners who went fist and kicks against eachother because one told the other "What you looking at"

Just two stories, nothing more.



Since I am in the university environment, I am surrounded by the 23% who is trying to make a productive life for themselves. 

Good for them. About the rest? 

You would not want to hear what the 23% is saying about the rest. I tell you, it is not nice. 

Especially once they start producing, and earning money, and paying the heavy taxes on their sweat. 

Ever heard Iranians talk about the Egyptian revolution? It is not what you read in the media about freedom and democracy.

Same with foreigners talking about other foreigners. When the threat of racism is lowered, or when the person is immune, the colors really show. 



Just read this. 



#¤%& ¤%& &%¤ ¤%&%&/¤#@#¤¤*##¤#"#"#..... "#¤"#¤"¤#"#¤...."#¤%%&%&¤&¤; ¤&¤¤%&¤%; #%&####¤%#¤%¤...



A foreshadow of what to come.

"Tolerate us! Our human rights! But, we will not tolerate anything that we do not want to tolerate! But you tolerate our intolerance!" 

So they had a fight over women not wearing scarfs... Hey, I am not saying it, it is in the news. 

Ever cared to check what is going on in Sweden? France? 

Oh well, I know, I am an intolerant asshole bereft of any knowledge of human rights. 



Seriously now... Surprised?

What did the multiculti crowd expect?

I come from a two cultural family (yea yea, gotta insert it again as I am so special), and I can tell you it is not easy. But my parents were not expecting it to be easy; unlike the multiculti "kumbayyaaa aaaaalllll llliiiiiivvvveeee iiiiinnnn peeeeeaaaacceeee annnndddd toleraaaaaaaaanceeeeee" crowd.



Again, what did the multiculti crowd expect?

That the people who cannot live in peace with their own kind suddenly will find peace when in the Frozen North?


There are some more articles in YLE, which I skipped, mainly due to boredom and repetition. 

But here is one from 2009:

In Finland, a family of two adults and three children between the ages of 10 and 17 years receives a monthly income benefit of 1,277 euros, plus free accommodation.

In addition to financial support, asylum seekers at reception centres receive compulsory health care.


3 children.. (Finns: 1.86, but lets keep our eyes off this), so they would receive a flat with at least two bedrooms, looking at the ages of the kids, I would guess it would be a three bedroom flat with a living room, all in all, around 100 sqm. 

In my area, that would amount to 1000-1300 euros rent. Lets say they were given a flat in the suburb; the free rental benefit values at about 800 euros. 

So the benefit they receive is 2100 euros, give and take few hundred. Monthly.

What is the median income in Finland?

Average salary runs around 2400 (wanna deduct tax from that? 30% plus minus few)

And according to Wikipedia, after claiming that Finnish households are not able to save from their income thus making the cunsupmtion = the income. (In reality it is actually more than the income by few percentage points)

Upper-level white-collar households (409,653) consumed an average 27,456 euro, lower-level white-collar households (394,313) 20,935 euro, and blue-collar households (471,370) 19,415 euro.

So a benefit of 2100x12 makes around 25.000 euros a year. Free. Casual. No strings attached.  


That is almost what the upper level white collar families can afford to spend in a year. 

I say it is a pretty good deal,

Ain't it?


Finns themselves being the naive and human loving beings, and politically correct, do not talk about this. The "racists" just vote for the True Finns, move out of neighborhoods, and select schools according to the word of mouth where the kids will study, play and grow up with other kids who identify with being Finnish. 

The foreigners working, usually in high tech jobs, but also bus drivers, road maintenance workers, builders, doctors, nurses, service personnel, etc; those are the ones who talk, and they do not talk about kumbayya and the love of diversity, when in private.

I can even bet that a number of them, once they get the Finnish passport, and if they got some good paying jobs that are so high taxed that the result is  similar to living on benefit, are contemplating on voting for the True Finns. 

The economic pool is only so big, and it can only be increased by producing people, not ones living on benefit and sipping tea 7-11. 

People are starting to see it, and they are also starting to see that multiculti is doomed to failure, and it will not fail peacefully. 

Worst case, it brings down the resident civilizaion, best case, civilization reverts to its old homogenous less tolerating ways. 


Maybe as a foreigner I write on this blog about the not so flattering things that I come accross, but I have payed my taxes, been economically productive and abided the laws. 

I am sure I would be thinking in harsher terms if I were a native under the current circumstances. 

So the ones who are looking at the True Finns as racist bigots. 

Open your eyes, and take a look around you and the facts. 

Then look at the social groups, political parties, institutions,foundations, interest groups who are loudest. 

Once you notice the lack for anyone speaking in the name of Finnish children, then think, what about the children. 

The Finnish* ones.


*Finnish: Children born to at least one Finnish parent, plus even children born in Finland to foreign parents who are law abiding citizens not on benefit, planning to stay.


  1. Mr. Finndistan,

    you are stating some facts which would be considered outright fascist if claimed out by a Finn. So it comes to you a bit of a given right to speak free since you are of foreign origin. So it puts you into a bit special position. I, for one, welcome educated immigrants like you.

    I consider you a clear thinking man.

  2. Makes you wonder who is fascist.

    A Finn stating that this is his country and the government's first and foremost duty is to Finns;

    Or the Pro-Immigration groups who want the Finns to bend over and spread their cheeks, and then, by law, force their mouths shut.

    Call it the Tyranny of Political Correctness,

    Call it Liberal Fascism

    Call it the Tyranny of the Rights of the Others

    Free speech is only allowed as long as it is politically correct; and if something has to fit that category, it cannot be free to be truly correct anymore.
