Un-Finnish business

I have never felt comfortable at the website Gates of Vienna. This essay, by the "well-known Finnish author and journalist" Jussi Halla-aho, is one of the reasons why. Like Bruce Bawer and others, Halla-aho (he can't help his silly name) writes about the disproportionate number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants. So far so sensible. But then he goes on to blame women for them:

I find it hard not to feel collective resentment towards women first because of what they (along with a few male sycophants) allow to happen to this society and themselves, and second because after each violent act committed against a woman the progressive womenfolk blame me, the Finnish man, for women’s sense of insecurity. In my collective resentment I sometimes find it difficult to feel genuine sympathy towards the victims of these crimes. I feel tempted to think that the women get what they ask for.

However, I try not to think that way, because not all the women are like Virtanen, Biaudet and Filatov. Rapes will eventually become more frequent. Since, this being the case, more women will be raped anyway, I sincerely hope that the predators who randomly pick their victims would catch the right women — meaning green-left liberals and their voters. It is rather them than someone else. For them nothing else works except if they get a taste of their own multicultural medicine.

So if we all stopped being so uppity and went back to the kitchen, everything would be fine? Where have I heard that before? Jussi Halla-aho - yes, let's laugh at his name after all - is not much better than the backward Muslims he criticises. Multiculturalism, like all ridiculous left-wing ideas, was initially the product of men's minds, not women's.

Rape is never a woman's fault, and there is never one woman more deserving of it than another. Jussi Hulliballoo should crawl back under his stone.

Thanks for this, Mary. I agree, rape is NEVER the victim's fault. It's a disgusting power-play by the perpetrator.  No one, absolutely no one, deserves, wants or solicits rape by an attacker.

A young, straight man of my acquaintance was brutally anally raped by an attacker whilst walking home late at night from a perfectly innocent evening spent in the company of his peers. In his defense the perpetrator claimed that the youngster should not have been wearing such tight jeans and walking on that particular street if he didn't want to be sexually assaulted. In other words, that the youngster in question had 'asked for it'. I have also read about cases of the rape of females in which the same defense has been offered by the defendant.

It's a rubbish defense - 'no' means 'no. Simple and straight forward, isn't it? When rebuffed by the person he desires the civilised man accepts the denial and volunteers to buy his desired one a cup of tea or coffee at the nearest all-night diner and afterwards offers to escort, in gallant manner, his desired one to his or her destination in safety. There is always the hope, of course, that the desired one might find such behaviour to be attractive and that he or she might one day grant the request. Love and lust do not die easily in a besotted male - but being besotted is no excuse for uncivilised behaviour!

However, rape, violent rape, is not about being besotted or in love or in lust: it's about power and most often it's about power over females. The men who commit this type of crime aren't interested in love, or even in lust, they are interested in power and domination, pain and hurt, and propagating their own world view - carnal satisfaction is a secondary consideration, it seems to me.

The man who wrote the lines which you have quoted is dangerous and demonstrates, copiously, that which I have just said, that it's about power and control, especially when he wrote this:

I sincerely hope that the predators who randomly pick their victims would catch the right women — meaning green-left liberals and their voters. It is rather them than someone else. For them nothing else works except if they get a taste of their own multicultural medicine.

That, in my opinion, is just evil and a prime demonstration of a mindset which does not, and probably cannot, value human life as it ought to. I do hope that the Police forces in Europe know who he is and are watching him.

I agreed with him. 

What is truly evil and destructive of human life is the progressive mindset that allows these barbarians into our midst and then forbids not only the removal of the barbarians but even any discussion of removing the barbarians.

Indeed. But since most of the power - even in ultra-progressive countries - is in the hands of men, they are responsible for the multicultural mindset. Marxism, that crap about the "noble savage", all lefty crap was invented by men.

As for hallalahalholo's statement that women deserve to be raped and that Muslim barbarians only need to pick their targets - that is despicable, and he is no better than the savages he castigates.
