Finland’s Social Democrats win slim victory as far right surges

Finland’s leftist Social Democrats won a razor-thin victory in Sunday’s general election, holding off the far-right Finns Party. The Social Democrats, led by 56-year-old former trade union boss Antti Rinne, picked up 40 seats in parliament, after campaigning on a ticket of fierce opposition to the austerity imposed by the previous centre-right government. The Finns Party won 39 seats.

Finland. Fought both the Nazis and the Soviets. One of the 33 out of 44 European nations not involved in the colonization of other continents or overseas imperialism. Has no obligations towards any other race or nation, historically or culturally, therefore doesn't suffer from white guilt. Going to Finland to preach how Nationalism is bad is equivalent of taking the stance of a Nazi or a Soviet from the standpoint of a Fin, because Nationalism takes on different viewpoints to different groups in this world, and Nationalism to a Fin is preserving the culture and people that both Nazis and Communists aimed to erase. Of course, i don't expect highly uneducated SJW Ameriburgers to have any sophistication of mind to comprehend this, yet alone global history education to grasp it.
