I’ve written previously about the recent crackdown on dissidents in the Finish blogosphere. The Finnish authorities use a law — modeled on a Swedish version — against hets mot folkgrupp (agitation against an ethnic group) to prosecute bloggers who step outside of acceptable politically correct discourse.
But the law is not the only means by which dissent is silenced; there are other ways of dealing with heretics.
The latest victim of the Finnish suppression of free speech is Jiri Keronen. Tundra Tabloids has the story:
Another Finnish Blogger Gets Censored…
It’s soon election time here in Finland, with many online news organizations offering space on their web pages for guest bloggers to comment on the various issues and events surrounding and effecting the municipal elections which are slated to be held very shortly.
The main message for this election couldn’t be any clearer, it’s an issue about our freedom of speech. Do we Westerners prefer the rights of humans or the rights of gods?
Finnish blogger Jiri Keronen recently received a major slap from one of them, Finland’s online news magazine, Uusi Suomi (New Finland), by deleting his election blog (formerly viewable at their online website) for publishing a post on his own web log, Helvetin puutarha (Hell’s Garden) that was critical of Islam.
Keronen wrote a blog post titled “Islam tells you to kill all those who dare to criticize Islam” which very correctly depicted what had happened to the publisher, Martin Rynja, who dared to publish Sherry Jones book on Mohamed’s pedophile escapades with the nine year old, Aisha, “The Jewel of Medina”.

Keronen also states on his own blog that prior to his entire election blog being totally removed by Uusi Suomi on their website, some of his other writings had been quietly deleted, like the blog post, “Islam causes violence towards women”. Please bear in mind that all of his writings were well researched and factual, there is absolutely nothing in them that could be considered as incitement.
The facts are that Jiri Keronen is being slapped down by a supposed “conservative news organization” just because he was presenting a critical view of Islam, nothing more, nothing less.

The pattern is now well established in most Western European countries: criticize Islam or mass immigration, and you risk being hauled before a kangaroo court to answer for your sins. Even if that doesn’t happen, you may still lose your job and any possibility of publishing your work again.
The case of Finland is especially poignant, since it has only a small immigrant community, and up until now has had only relatively minor problems with its Muslim minority.
All that is about to change, since the Finnish establishment is determined to jump on the Multicultural bandwagon and import as many immigrants as possible. Anything else would be racist and xenophobic, you see.
