Finland investigates gay politician for criticizing Islam

Today the truth is stigmatized. It is “controversial.” But ultimately Finnish authorities, like authorities all over the West, are on a fool’s errand. They can’t suppress reality forever. Before too long it will be abundantly clear to everyone.
“Finland: Police investigate gay politician once again for posting about Islam…….,” by KGS, Tundra Tabloids, January 10, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
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”. Today, Sebastian asks the same question concerning this investigation as he did in his closing statements at his trial: “How else can one write about Islam…….?”
The text simply reads: “Terrorism knows no religion. If you don’t count Islam”
What the Finnish judicial system and the police are doing, can accurately be described as prosecuting political speech. As I have often stated before, Muslims by default belong to a political party, called Islam. It’s not of our making, our choice nor fault. Islam is what it is. It’s an entire society and/or civilization with its rules and laws that govern every aspect of human life, even that of non-believers.
Criticizing that ideology and the followers who champion its all encompassing mandate, is by default political speech, and it’s that speech that needs protection, not prosecution. In 2015 Jyllands-Posten’s former editor Flemming Rose gave a wonderful speech at Helsinki University concerning the ever growing restrictions we face here in Europe on free speech. Truth is no longer being considered a valid defense of one’s own speech and thoughts if it runs counter to political policies accepted by the ruling (consensus driven) elite….
