The left claims to stand for oppressed people. It shouts about feminism and gay rights, but when the rubber hits the road, there's only one group left standing at the top of its victimhood heap. It's the one group whom you can never say anything bad about under any possible set of circumstances. They can throw gay people off the roof, rape young girls and burn down synagogues, but cannot be criticized.
Via Tundra Tabloids, this case is another reminder of the left's real priorities.
Sebastian Tynkkynen (FB) is a Finnish politician who has been at the forefront in creating awareness about Islamization in Finland.
He had been investigated earlier by a heavily politicized Finnish police department over his Facebook postings in August of 2016, and went to trial almost exactly a year ago today, and was eventually found guilty of ”hate speech”.
Sebastian Tynkkynen has previously faced a police investigation for his comments about Islam.
In a statement sent out to the press after the verdict, Tynkkynen appeared to be unrepentant.
‘The freedom of speech in Finland doesn’t look very good for LGBT people. In 2013 Finnish imam Abbas Bahmanpour compared homosexuality to incest and told in live TV-show, that gays should be punished to death. If that isn’t incitement, what is then? Bahmanpour has never been challenged with his thoughts in court.’
‘My right to defend Finland as a society, where human rights and gender equality come true, should be bigger than the right of Muslims to not be hurt when I criticize their religious teachings to kill gays.
‘The whole Europe must wake up, when violent teachings of the Quran are coming true. We must start loving our beautiful values and say no to Islamization of Europe. This 300€ charge won’t stop me for warning Finland and Europe about Islam.
‘Next time when I have enough money to express my political views again, I am ready to post the same warnings to Facebook.’
The left will claim that oppressed people should have more bandwidth to condemn their oppressors even if what they say appears offensive. At least if said 'oppressors' are white men. But not when they're Islamic clerics.
