Amid migrant rape epidemic, Finland’s dangerously stupid PSA suggests fending violent perps off with … mittens?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

I came across a public service announcement from Finland and one of the most dangerously stupid things I've ever seen. It's been broadcast on the Finnish state broadcaster, YLE.

The PSA is supposed to teach women how to fend off rapists. The advice it gives involves sticking your mittened hand in your rapists face and yelling stop. If things get really serious, you can feel free to swing your purse at the perp.

I've been more aggressive shooing squirrels away from my bird feeder and chasing ravens away from my garbage cans than the woman in that video.

According to the European Agency for Fundamental Rights, 47% of women in Finland have experienced sexual violence in their lifetime, second in the European Union behind Denmark. And the Finnish rape epidemic is coinciding with the number of migrants flooding into the country. The number of reported rapes has doubled in Finland since the year 2000. Statistics from a study done by Helsinki University's Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy show that incidents of reported rapes done by immigrants were 8 times higher than that of native Finns. The study also shows that most of those reported rapes were committed by people from the Middle East and North Africa.

Instead of addressing the real root cause in the spike of sexual violence - that being uncontrolled mass immigration from cultures that treat women like property - the Finnish Government has taken to broadcasting public service announcements that amount to jangling your keys and throwing change in the opposite direction to create a diversion.

We need a refugee pause before women in Canada end up needing rape prevention videos full of bad advice.

The commenting on this is pretty sad. One liberal, Sean, going off full retard as usual, and everyone else talking about the best way to kick a man in the groin.

I have some bad news for you. When a 3 or 4 men decide to rape you, it’s happening. I don’t care if you’re a 300 pound man. You’re getting it. Well, in Canada and Europe anyway. In America you can shoot them and in Russia you form together and beat them.

Our only okay solution was vet them properly and let them in very slowly so the flow could be stopped if things got hairy. We could even send them back if it got bad enough. That was the smart way. We voted for Junior instead.

The other solution is to not walk around outside or take the bus, ever. This country just got even more ridiculous

Are we sure this wasn’t produced by some comedy channel or group? Because it is hilariously funny! If this is in fact a real PSA, then the poor people of Finland are in some very real danger, if they are actually stupid enough to do what it suggests.

Where is Mrs. Bobbit when we need her???

feminist love throwing other women under the bus. that’s what they do. that and shit-up everything they touch.

First dunk your mittens in a bucket of chloroform. This will negate any anti nut kicking defensive reflexes.

As someone who just visited Finland, it is extremely disturbing that the government feels the way to avoid violence is to use your mittens.

Actually its very hard to kick a man in the groing cause suddenly they have bionic reflexes. They never suspect you are going for throat.

Not at all, you fake them out with a swing, slap or side step, then move in fast with the knee. Its all one smooth motion. I was also taught, back when I was a young pup, another nice move. If he comes from behind and grabs tromp on one of his feet with your heel then swing your elbow into his gut hard, just be careful not to lose your own footing. It’s called self defense and every girl should learn it.

Thanks Sheila for my next brilliant idea, "Anti-Rape Mittens, the one accessory western women cannot be without. Lightweight and comfortable, yet stylish in a variety of colours and materials. Also included for a small price embedded in the fabric is your choice: mace, pepper spray, pistol, uzi, or tazer. Note: all come equipped with a rape whistle, an emergency niqab, and a prayer.
All who have ordered so far have upgraded.

the sad part is because of feminism women no longer want men in their lives to protect them. apparently anything a man can do a woman can do better, or a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. using the logic demonstrated in this video reminds me of during the cold war schools were teaching the kids to hide under their desks if a nuke goes off….ya, that will protect them. better yet, just close your eyes and it will all go away.

“I say PUNCH THEM IN THROAT! You can even do that with your mitties on :D "

I suggest a lot lower and with a knee as hard as possible, then you can do the mitten thing to wave bye bye as he is on the ground clutching his junk.

Back in the day we had the old “duck and cover” routine. The intelligence of the government propaganda remains consistently stupid over the years.

Sean Penson commented 3 hours ago: " The Conservatives are in absolute shambles, being led by a nobody into oblivion!"
Do I’ve to remind you what happened to your beloved Liberal party in 2011 election under Michael Ignatieff.

Watching this idiotic video I believe it was made with a premise, based on mohammedan ideology, that somehow women are always responsible for their own rape/sexual assault. If they just cover themselves up with enough cloths, including hands, and gesture ‘pause’ to the assailant/would be rapist the assault wont occur. In other words Finnish govt. is implying that it’s western women’s fault if they get raped because they didn’t say ‘NO’ to their rapists.

There will be many Canadian women killed in defence of our God given freedoms. Men do not own women, and vice versa. I for one will not be submitting to a backwater evil cult, that is run by the devil and his demons. It is far better to die free and with real honour, the type of honour that our God, the true God of Israel gives to those who have faith in his word. I will never submit to this evil.

Ha Sean is getting funnier by the day!! Now I see why The Rebel allows him stay, he provides comic relief. Thanks for the morning laugh Sean, laughter is a great way to start the day and you do have the knack to amuse.

Love and kindness, with submission, will win people over! Hatred, anger and violence will never win. Look how much of a war monger Harper was, and see what happened! The Conservatives are in absolute shambles, being led by a nobody into oblivion! So much for unite the right! Unite the left has already happened, and we refuse to go back to the heterosexist and racist past

The Finns need Ludvig Borga. The evil Finnish environmentalist turned politician, who pinned the native Tatanka (buffalo) with one finger.

Give yourself a pat on the back if you understood all of what I just said.

That might work if you are strong with the Force. Otherwise it will mean nothing and probably get the woman charged with some hate crime offense.

I think we have to accept the fact, the leaders of the EU Country’s are on the side of the migrants, as is the, so called, leader of Canada.

White Christians and Jews have become surplus to requirements.

Say goodbye, or fight back. The choice is ours to choose.

Henry-Trudeau will make it illegal (racist) for non-Muslim women to wear burkas.

Kay Jelly, you are a liar. The article you speak of never mentions sexual orientation of the Finns. You made that up, and as such, prove once again, you are an antagonizing troll, probably Gordo Steele, and as always, you are a proven liar.

Finnish women are learning a lesson that I expect our own women to learn very soon now: when they need the help of their own government to protect themselves from rapists, they can expect their government to abandon them to their own devices. Worse than that, they will learn that they are not just abandoned but have their hands tied behind their backs by the same government that is supposed to be protecting them. They will find that they are denied defensive weapons like guns, tasers, and even pepper spray because their elites are squeamish that these might be misused. (I remember reading that Toronto police did not want people to have pepper spray because people could use them to rob convenience stores: “Give me all the money in the cash register or I’ll pepper spray you!”.)

That means that when someone wants to rape our women, they’ll find there is very little to stop them beyond the mittens and the purse-swings the Finnish authorities are recommending in this video. Unless the status quo gets challenged very vigorously and very soon, I predict that we’re going to see the same kind of massive increase in sexual assaults that the Europeans are seeing and for the same reason. (And I see no reason why Canadian-born creeps would refuse to take advantage of the apparent open season on women that our elites are enabling.)

I suspect we’re going to see our women dress a lot more modestly in the coming months and years strictly as a defense mechanism. I expect the non-Muslim women will resist going to full burkas but they may get pretty close, simply to protect themselves when their own government won’t stick up for them for fear of being called Islamophobic. I also predict a massive swing back to the Conservatives if Sonny Boy proves to be as big a disaster as he is already shaping up to be.
