Aapo Puhakka has posted his translation of the controversial article by Mikko Ellilä. He has also posted a long and thoughtful response to and analysis of Mr. Ellilä’s article.
I find much of what Mikko Ellilä says repugnant. His statements about American blacks are nonsensical, apparently the product of an absolute unfamiliarity with the nature of American culture.
But what will happen next is that outrage will be turned against Mr. Ellilä, instead of against the thought police of the Finnish state and the EU.
We must not lose sight of what we are defending here. We are not defending what Mikko Ellilä wrote; we are defending his right to publish it. The issue is not the content of his writing; it is the process of his being summoned to answer for it.
I’ve read the whole thing, and Mr. Ellilä is obviously being deliberately provocative in the way he presents his views. But there are no incitements to crime, and no defamation of individuals. Nothing in his piece warrants the intrusion of the government. If the law allows the police to summon him on the basis of this article, “then the law is a ass.”
Remember this: the same people who want to silence Mikko Ellilä for saying “Negroes have a lower median IQ than whites” consider the statement “Islam is dangerous” to be equally bad. The silencing of “offensive” speech will not stop with outright racism — the entire Counterjihad becomes vulnerable if we meekly accept the abomination of censorship.
Here are some excerpts from Mr. Puhakka’s translation of Mikko Ellilä’s article, “Society Consists of People”. It’s extremely politically incorrect. I’ve modified the translation slightly, but only to conform with standard American usage.
In the discussion of immigration and multiculturalism many people seem to forget that every society and culture is created and upheld by certain kind of people.
European culture and modern western society is created by white people.
One could see in Africa societies and cultures created by black people, where there were no railroads, airplanes, streets with asphalt, stone houses, electricity, telephone, television, etc.
People of the Middle East have created a culture of desert-living tribes, that is so-called Islamic culture.
People of East Asia, mostly Japanese and Chinese, created in their own times a society where the standard of living and technical ability was for centuries higher than in Europe.
The collectivistic, authoritarian way of thinking, typical for Asians, leads however to stagnation, as a result of which, for example, America and Africa were conquered by Europeans, not by Japanese or Chinese.
Rationalism and individualism is typical of the European way of thinking and a necessary result of these traits is the support of private property and a free market-economy. For this reason the industrial revolution happened in Europe and not in Asia.
Asians can live in a European society, because they have no problems living by its rules. In their own societies Asians don’t want to implement values of European enlightenment philosophy, because they really see no use for them.
Asians think, that for example freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association and gathering and free elections are unnecessary nonsense. Idolatry of leaders as absolutist authorities, support of the official ideology of state without criticism, and persecution of dissidents are normal, self-evident and necessary things for Asian people.

Robberies, rapes, nepotism, corruption, clan-warfare, superstition, and murders committed on a momentary impulse are normal things for African people. If Africans form a majority in some country outside of Africa, this country is transformed into Africa. This has happened for example in Haiti, where voodoo-culture and a society torn by bolshevistic anarchy strangely reminds us of African culture and society.
After this are sections about the deficiencies of intelligence among Africans. But interspersed with those observations are some very commonsensical passages:
…There is a positive correlation between intelligence and standard of living. Causality goes in both directions: On the one hand an increase in the standard of living increases the intelligence level by decreasing for example brain-damage caused by malnutrition in the population; on the other hand a more intelligent population can create a higher standard of living for them. When the mean intelligence level decreases, the standard of living of the country decreases. Stupid people can’t keep up a high standard of living, because the standard of living is the same as the real value of the sum of all production of items and services per capita; stupid people can’t keep up as valuable a total production of commodities as intelligent people, so a more stupid society has a lower standard of living.
…In Finland immigrants commit more than 20 times as many rapes per capita than Finnish people. The more immigrants from Africa and Middle-East are in Europe, the more crime there is in Europe. If all non-white people nowadays living in Europe would move back to their countries of origin, the crime rate would decrease several tens of percents in Europe.
That last paragraph reminds us of the pernicious unintended consequences of Multiculturalism. Mr. Ellilä is stating a plain fact: that the increase of immigration from poor Third World countries is invariably accompanied by an increase in violent crime. When this information is deemed racist, and is suppressed or denied — as it is throughout Europe — the perverse effect is to cause ordinary people to draw their own racist conclusions, in the absence of any honest discussion about what is actually happening.
Mikko Ellilä’s more obnoxious assertions can’t be refuted when all reasonable discussion of them is foreclosed.

For the record, Mikko’s case has not been mentioned in the MSM yet. Not a single word.
