Paul Krugman could tell Brett Kavanaugh was another Haven Monahan just by looking at him. Haven’t you people watched any romantic comedies going back to The Graduate in 1967? The mean rich kid who loses the girl to the mensch in the last reel always looks like Kavanaugh. Everybody knows that.

A photo from when the impoverished young Paul Krugman had to work his way thru Yale as Brett Kavanaugh’s caddy. Kavanaugh would require Krugman to kick his golf ball out from behind trees while nobody was looking.

    I want every Congressperson to have all their records from Middle School & HS! And with HS, it is with all sports, theater (* big #Metoo shit) included. The cool people were cool and the UnCola people thought they were safe for life. but, now no one, is UnCola. It all sucks – vote Republican!

  3. Paul Krugman is another highly intelligent idiot.

    He’s probably triggered by the name Brett.

    Krugman’s nightmare:

  4. Swarmy, smirking, entitled…

    vs. Hillary’s girlfriend’s husband, who was clearly the victim of his addictions when his 50 year old self sent nude pictures to 15 year old girls.

    This guy should stick to economics. Except he’s not any good at that either. Maybe left wing shill is his highest calling.

  5. I’ve long suspected that Krugman has zero self awareness and now I am convinced.

    PALO ALTO — The fog was just lifting at Capitola beach one morning this July when Christine Blasey Ford confided in two friends. She had written her congresswoman and anonymously tipped off the Washington Post with her explosive story, claiming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her in high school.

    But now she was worried that her name would come out. She was bracing for an avalanche of attacks and searching her memory for anyone, anything, that could validate her story.

    “I’ve been trying to forget this all my life, and now I’m supposed to remember every little detail,” one of those friends, Jim Gensheimer, recalled Blasey Ford saying that summer day while watching her kids participate in a Junior Lifeguard program. “They’re going to be all over me.”

    We have coalition governments because of the nature of our electoral system.

    The last right-of-centre government was in coalition with the Maori Party. It worked out fine. The Maori Party are really only interested in “their people” but the handled the social welfare brief very well.

    The current left-of-centre government is in coalition with the highly nationalist New Zealand First.

    NZ First has done the one thing I wanted them to do which is block an increase in refugee settlement.

    The government here is a long way from perfect and we are afflicted by PC as well, but what’s happening in the US is absurd.

    NZ First is run by a highly charismatic Maori goofball called Winston Peters who has turned baiting leftie journalists into performance art.

    The problem with the Bret thing is: there is no problem, As far as the men I screwed in HS, well, they are several in NJ, NY, CT etc; some, in very high positions now.

    None of them ever attacked me in HS – we were all drunk…no one got raped (or were pregnant 4 weeks later or something;) we were f*cked up kids & sex-crazed kids of the late 70′s. The men I mentioned who are in High Positions now, should STFU and stop being partisan hacks….after all these times. BTW, I kept journals! Beware, beware, beware

  32. Years ago I used to take Krugman seriously and read some of his books, now no longer. And yet, calling Kavanaugh smarmy is on the mark. He was a lead guy in the Starr travesty. Just to get the flavor of that operation is how they sent Susan Macdougal the ex-wife of the crazy real-estate dealer in Little Rock in chains from one federal prison to another to another over a period of more than year as far as I remember to make her testify against Clinton and failed to break her. Ya’all remember the $68,000 real-estate deal the Clintons had invested in with her manic real-estate husband. Krugman is a soft looking guy married and they have cats. As for Kavanaugh’s face, judge for yourself.

  36. The difference here between Anita Hill and Chrissy Blasey is that it was OK to smack down a woman, particularly a black woman, in the 1980s and early 1990s.

    What is not different is that Blasey has no choice but to testify, lest she not ruin her future life for going public for what would likely be a one-time payoff. She, like Ms. Hill, will get a number of lucrative payoffs, e.g. book deals, movie royalties, etc., for the rest of her life, for the occasional re-telling of her story to new generations of youth to let them know what a bad man Justice Kavanaugh is … but only if she doesn’t tell enough to actually kill the appointment.

During Bush’s second term the cucks tried about five distinct stratagems to pass that abomination into law. As long as a cuck sits in Congress they will never let that “dream” die.

    The cucks are the real enemy.

    This is about midterm GOTV, not Brett. The whole Dem cognoscenti knew this Anita Hill reboot was a low-percentage shot, but there are useful side effects of dropping it in “scandal/controversy”-format wide release.

    It may still torpedo Haven Kavanaugh. There is a lot of bad analysis to comfort the Beltway Repubs against this. For example, the stupid GOPe meme that red-state Dem incumbents should worry about voting against him. Yellow-dog Democrat & low-info independents do not care about this. They may be fine with Brett ceteris paribus but they’re not some doofus Heritage/Federalist groupies in love with the guy. Unlike flop-sweat GOPe consultants, the average voter views acceptable SC nominees as dime-a-dozen (rightly or not).

    But it comes down to the level of cuck in the Senate and Di-Fi knows that could swing either way. The best thing about the insta-scandal is renationalizing a judicial nom the media was already bored with. Most delightful of all, it will probably hurt right-wing female candidates the most, e.g. Blackburn opposing popular white guy Bredesen in TN. There’s “Year of the Woman II” for ya, lol

    Recovered Memories …?

    I’m wondering if Christine Blasey Ford has had any exposure to the “recovered memory” shakedown. You know, the feminist movement that sought to connect women having relationship issues with suppressed memories of males sexually assaulting them. An appealing template for women as perpetual victims and very Freudian: Trauma, suppression, and then remembering the memory. Then, you blame-shift and transfer your issues from yourself to your sexual protagonist. Now purged of your emotional impediments, you can go forth to “find your prince” with a fresh chance of catching and/or keeping him.

    Extrapolating, Christine was evidently having marital problems. During therapy, she miraculously remembered the cause. Something terrible had happened during her youth … like being thrown on the bed (attempted rape?) by someone she knew in high school who later became a political caricature to loathe and hate. The memories were foggy; she couldn’t remember the year or where it happened. Her “recovered memories”, however, gave her someone besides herself to blame for her marital problems. As a bonus, she could now also hate her “rapist” for his political views. She would get her revenge on him one way or the other.
    ___________

    Aside: I knew a woman from high school with a similar problem. Let’s call her Mary. Neither I nor other potential suitors would have anything to do with her. Regardless, she relentlessly stalked me. Somehow Mary and I found ourselves on a date. After pizza, Mary requested that I not take her home … perhaps we could go somewhere to “park”. We parked somewhere. As I recall, we talked about arguments for the existence of God. Then, I took her home.

    Years later when Facebook rolled out “friend-mania”, I accepted Mary’s “friend request”. Her first post on the network was to announce to the world that she had been crazy about me in high school and was glad to reconnect. I was embarrassed for her husband. I forthwith dropped all of my classmates and restricted Facebook to immediate family.

    I later learned that Mary had undergone therapy for “recovered memories”. Males would have little or nothing to do with her in high school and later in life. Now, she knew why. She accused her father of sexually molesting her as a child. The small-town community knew her father as a staid university professor with an older daughter who turned out quite normal. No evidence of molestation except a foggy “recovered memory” 52 years after the fact. Absolute “horseshit”!

    Mary suffered social isolation as a result of her reckless accusation, including I suspect, alienation from her immediate family. Embarrassed about her “recovered memory” fiasco, Mary stopped going to class reunions.

    Paul Krugman thinks at least half of his fellow Americans are Nazis. Why should we pay attention to someone who hates us so? Do you really think Krugman’s interests align with our interests in any way?

    Assuming for a moment that the incident did happen exactly as Ford describes it, no one is taking into account the very real possibility that this wasn’t sexual whatsoever, let alone “attempted rape.”

    Ford claims that she and Kavanaugh were tackled, rugby-scrum style, by Kavanaugh’s drunken buddy Judge, and then the boys went stumbling down the stairs.

    That doesn’t sound very sexual or “rapey” to me… sounds more like drunken horseplay and drunken stupidity. They might have thought that Ford was a stuck-up bitch and they’d go tackle her just for shits and grins.

    The guys who made The Graduate were kind of center-right Jews and they happened to get lucky with a movie that accidentally tapped into the huge upswelling of center-right ethnocentric Jewish pride after the 6 Day War. The movie was made before the war but came out afterwards. It didn’t do well when they showed it on college campuses because it seemed kind of square and irrelevant to protesting Vietnam and the draft. But in late 1967 it took off on the Upper West Side and turned into a huge hit nationally in 1968.

    Side effects is Kavanaugh gets on and will be the msot conservative judge this side of Clarence Thomas, or Trump circles back to one of the women he almost picked who are that conservative anyway.

    Kavanaugh denies this.

    But if arguendo you concede what this woman now claims (with no corroboration at all), it wasn’t anything close to rape.It’s how we sort out dealing with the opposite sex, and it’s clumsy and not pretty.The Left wants to criminalize being a dumb teenager. Remarkably, the inner city of Chicago,black teens killing each other, no bid deal, but I digress. I was a 18 year old teenage boy in 1982. If trying to make out with a girl at a kegger who is not receptive is now rape, we will be ruled by gamma dorks and the species will die out. At the point the Left will demand a notarized permission slip to ask a girl to dance. Unless of course you are Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy or Keith Ellison.

    Kavanaugh’s greatest offense is being a straight white guy with a regular family. And worse for a NY Jew like Krugman, a dirty Irish Catholic.

    Good point. Not very mature but the kind of horseplay lots of immature teenagers engage in- myself included. Looking back, it was good natured, though I’m sure some of it crossed a line in the eyes of some or wasn’t as appreciated as they went along with. I’m also certain that some stories can be truncated or manipulated to be placed in a bad light. Like, if we tossed someone in a lake, a stupid teenager prank can easily turn into a harrowing tale of attempted drowning.

    —————

    This is exactly what they did to Mitt Romney- cutting his classmates hair as a prank, while not very nice, became a tale of bullying psychopathy. That wasn’t quite the same bunker-buster because at the end of the day, no one cares if boys beat up and bully other boys. So from here until eternity, every Republican is going to face vague charges of affronts to female virtue.

    Following on TheJester’s comment on Recovered Memories — this morning on my local NPR station, I listened to a BBC World Service’s The Woman Who Woke Up In The Future:

    One morning Naomi Jacobs woke up with a rare form of amnesia – she had lost all her adult memories, and although she was 32 – she thought she was a teenager again, utterly bewildered by how she had ended up in the future. Naomi had to rediscover the person she grew up to be, and what she found out wasn’t promising.

    The segment tells the heartwarming story of a plucky mother who overcame her mysterious amnesia to recover and heal her family. The key that enables Naomi to Make Sense Of It All and return to full health: her realization that she must surely have been the victim of childhood sexual abuse.

    Only… there are enough jarring details in the saga to hint at serious personality defects and mental-health issues that burden the heroine. E.g., “The first return of a memory happened when — don’t judge me! — I was three months pregnant and out dancing in a nightclub.”

    This wretched class of human-interest titillation would be unremarkable, except for the target audience — it’s Paul Krugman’s readership. What fraction of my fellow NPR listeners are alert enough to recognize the absurdities they’re being peddled, Oxbridge accents notwithstanding?

    Anyone who accepts this BBC story will have no trouble seeing Professor Ford’s accusations as unremarkable and truthful.

    And Naomi, too, would surely pass a polygraph administered by a former F.B.I. agent.

    Yeah. You’ve got to figure that if they actually wanted to rape her, they could have easily done it. If Kavanaugh was trying to rape her and his buddy Judge busted in, he’d have said “Get lost man, I’m tryin’ to make it with this chick.”

    Or he could have invited Judge to get a piece of the action and they could have both gang-raped her.

    But they didn’t.

    So it sounds more like just plain old drunken horseplay. The fact that Ford never told anyone else, never told her parents, never called the cops, and never mentioned it until she was in therapy, for God’s sake, claiming she had PTSD in 2012, indicates to me that she only remembered it and re-interpreted it as “sexual assault” retroactively after she had been “woke” by her liberal SJW politics… and in all probability prompted by a liberal SJW shrink.

    Christine Blasey Ford Wants F.B.I. to Investigate Kavanaugh Before She Testifies
    Sept. 18, 2018

    WASHINGTON — The woman who has accused President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault threw into doubt plans for an extraordinary Senate hearing to air her accusations, charging on Tuesday that some senators have already made up their minds and insisting that the F.B.I. investigate first.

    Speaking through her lawyers, Christine Blasey Ford did not explicitly rule out appearing next Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify along with Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh. But echoing Senate Democrats, she said an investigation should be “the first step” before she is put “on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident.”

    Republicans are unlikely to negotiate an alternative date and could go ahead with the hearing without her or cancel it altogether if Dr. Blasey refuses to appear and move quickly to a vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. They have repeatedly stressed that Monday would be her opportunity to testify, either privately or publicly, and that they then planned to move forward with the confirmation process. They have also rejected the possibility of an F.B.I. investigation.
    ……

    “If she does not come on Monday, we are going to move on and vote on Wednesday,” Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina and a member of the committee, told Fox News on Tuesday evening.

    I suspect that Tommy Brady, Jimmy Kelly and Matty Ryan use to give little Paulie Krugman swirlies in the locker room after gym class.

    I would bet against that; ‘hazing downwards’ of the type you describe is Beta-male behaviour, and those guys are genuine alpha males. Genuine alpha males get sufficient “positive feedback” (and status) from their skills and have no need to chase the approval of people ‘below’ them in the pecking order by kicking downwards.

    In my jurisdiction, a “swirlie” was called “flushing” (same thing: hold a weak kid’s head in the toilet and press the button). It was never performed by the guys who were first-string sportsmen – it was always a clique of guys who were on the margins of the sporting kids, and also academic underperformers. Bullying obviously-weak kids was literally the best they could do in terms of the perennial quest for social status – that’s the hallmark of a loser.

    The same was true when my two brothers were in high school (they were 4 and 13 years behind me respectively), and it was still true when history stopped and normal stupid boy shit became a hate crime (when the eldest of my nephews were in high school some 25 years after me).

    To be a ‘first-string’ type athlete – even in high school – takes significant effort and discipline, even for people with a good amount of natural talent.

    It might be slightly different in the US and Canada, since in “sanitary pads and helmets” football, some positions (e.g., offensive linemen) require zero skill at high school level: being a lineman just means being a big fat-ass and getting in the road. In other contact/semi-contact sports (rugby, soccer, Aussie rules, Gaelic football, hurling, hockey [ice and field], even basketball), there are non-trivial skills at every key position.

    This is a bit of a bugbear of mine, because I have been around elite sports all my life; if there is one ‘stylised fact’ that I have observed, from high school onwards, it’s this… the better the player, the better his treatment of people below him on the social totem pole.

    I was below what I would consider genuinely elite: at junior level (between the age of 15 and 17) I played in State representative trials in two sports (football and cricket; school captain in both) but was never a genuine pro prospect in either. My younger brother was a genuinely elite sportsman until his 30s, and played football professionally.

    The kids who were ‘bullies’ were at least one performance decile below even me.

    That’s not saying every elite sportsman is an angel – they can be ratbags who are hard to wrangle… they just don’t’ kick downwards.

    Feinstein on Kavanaugh Accusation: ‘I Can’t Say Everything is Truthful’
    By JACK CROWE
    September 18, 2018 6:11 PM

    Senator Dianne Feinstein of California conceded Tuesday that she can’t attest to the veracity of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.

    “[Ford] is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted. On this . . . I can’t say that everything is truthful. I don’t know,” Feinstein told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked if she believed the allegation.
    ……

    Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley has scheduled a public hearing for Monday and invited Kavanaugh and his accuser to testify. Kavanaugh has accepted the invitation while Ford has been unresponsive, despite her attorney’s previous statement that she would be willing to defend her allegation under oath.

    Grassley indicated Thursday morning that he would cancel the hearing if Ford were to refuse to testify and a number of fellow Republicans, including Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, have said they would support Kavanaugh’s confirmation if his accuser won’t testify.

    Democratic leadership, meanwhile, has called for Grassley to delay the hearing pending an FBI investigation, despite the FBI’s insistence that the allegation doesn’t fall within its jurisdiction.

    The German language offers two words for “knowing”. One, “wissen”, means to know a fact. The other, “kennen” means to be acquainted with or to have experience of something.

    Krugman is a man who “wissens” much but “kennens” little. He’s a perfect example of a closeted East Coast intellectual. I doubt that he has had any real contact with the people of the heartland, though he may have read about them. Certainly, he has never met or talked to any of them at say, a family reunion.

    Any opinion of his about them is worthless because it is grounded in nothing, pure fantasy. As Kant said, “Concepts without precepts are empty, precepts without concepts are blind.” So Krugman’s opinions about midwesterners are vacuous.

    After listening to this repulsive little man’s weak voice mouthing such deplorable sentiments I regret ever having read his books or his website. Intellectually, he offers nothing.

    Yes, sounds to me, considering that it was marriage counseling, that what this woman was doing is reinterpreting her erotic experiences as a means of psychologically controlling&rationalizing them. The way she tells the story is so truncated that it invites all sorts of speculation for people to read information into it. For example, I heard someone earnestly reason that he must have ripped her clothing and she had to have left the gathering disheveled. Nothing she has offered up actually suggests that’s even close to the case- unless one’s experience is that they are so clumsy with buttons that they consistently tear their own clothing while unfastening them. But something claimed to be so traumatic needs that sort of hook because it’s not there in her story.

    It’s all phony: it has now dawned on her that she will be even more traumatized (and need additional therapy :) ) because K’s daughters (and all those Bball playing girls) will forever be traumatized by this woman’s insinuation that their dad is a rapist. F seems like she has histrionic personality disorder…very common in privileged white women who are obsessed with getting attention and believing they are always a victim. With all her photos (wearing a P hat and all) at anti-Trump protests, it’s just downright, a joke. This woman, once again, proves that women (especially American women*) are lying jerks, parasites and major manipulators…and why I don’t like them…well, 99% of them.

    *suffice it to say, that Scandi Women never needed a Women’s Mvmt because they had 2 WW’s: starvation, loss of land/farms (Soviet takeover-new borders) death, loss of male population (war casualties) and the need to enter the public sphere, immediately, after WW2. This is primarily why daycare/extended kindergarten was created in the Nordic countries…women had to work. Women entered factories, teaching, jobs in transportation, high public sphere positions (legislation, banking, medical, diplomacy, academic administration & faculty), any previous jobs held by men.

    Most recent BS is that she’s refusing to testify on Monday. She’s demanding a full FBI investigation of something that falls in the jurisdiction of city police

    She says she heard about the party at a swimming pool. She wasn’t t invited She doesn’t even know in what town the party was held let alone street address . She was 15 so had no dr license. She doesn’t know how she got to the party.

    An FBI investigation can’t start until
    Someone makes a report to the FBI.
    But she refuses to make the report.

    And the print media and TV news is treating the ridiculous allegation as if it were the truth.

    And the BS about having to move out of her home in millionaire leftist Palo Alto because of death threats.

    What a world.

    She doesn’t even know the town in which the alleged party took place. The man she claimed was a witness wrote a letter to the judiciary committee saying the incident never happened.

    Who cares, Kavanaugh probably supports affirmative action and mass immigration like the rest of the judges.

    In truth as human beings, we all have skeletons. That said, his comments are not much of a prediction or that relevatory.

    The traditional problem with exceptionally talented people is not that they’re malevolent towards others but indifferent/inconsiderate towards them.

    Taking people for granted, breaking promises, not returning favors, taking all kinds of liberties. General selfish-asshole behavior. But this doesn’t necessarily involve ill-will.

    Being a bully is different. It involves actively pursing someone in order to vex them. In a perverse way it’s a sign of respect, in that you’re acknowledging the existence of your victim and that you care what they think of you.

    Even Clarence Thomas, the one black guy on the court is Catholic so we must be doing something right. If SCOTUS were to be a reflection of the “historic composition” of the country one would expect a black justice to be Baptist or some other class of Protestant. What percentage of native born black Americans with antebellum Southern ancestry are Catholic anyway? Probably very small; most black Catholics in this country immigrated very recently from the Caribbean (Haiti) or directly from an African nation.

    BTW, Sweden, the lame-asses during WW2, copied Finland, as far as free daycare/kindergarten, post WW2- Swedes did not invent free daycare. Finland was the only Nordic country that had mass casualties in WW2: fighting the Soviets; and then, defending against the Nazi’s (Germany was losing, badly,) as they burned thousands of homes and killed thousands of Karelians (killed their farm animals!) and northern Finns. It is weird to see Nazi Swastikas (soldiers who fell & whose bodies were never claimed – German cities, by then, were too heavily bombed for any of their kin to even be alive), Jewish Star of Davids and traditional Christian crosses on the grave markers of Helsinki’s cemetery, along with Mannerheim, presidents, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, writers, poets, artists – it’s an exquisite place – the sculpture is sublime -everything is very peaceful there, and tombstones will never be torn down.

    The photo in the article implies Kavanaugh was a ‘WASP’. Other the W he does not seem to be an Angle, Saxon, nor Protestant. So it is even worse, to the extent his imagined ancestors mingled with Jews it was as household staff. His fraternization with Waspy sounding Christine Blasey Ford kind of reminds one of Eugene O’Neills depiction of Irish v Protestant relations in plays like The Hairy Ape. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hairy_Ape

    Finns sent many children to live with strangers in Sweden during WWII, so give the Swedes some credit for providing free childcare.

    After WWII, Sweden was largely untouched, whereas, Finland was saddled with war debt, loaded with refugees, tasked with rebuilding the economy, and literally cut in half. Finns banded together out of necessity, but the welfare state didn’t really kick into high gear for several decades.

    Finns didn’t defend against their German allies. Towards the end of the war, the Finns saw the writing on the wall, and, fearing their Soviet neighbors, took on the task of expelling the Germans from Finland. The Italians also fought against German forces in the end, as did other allies of the Germans.

    I’ve been to Mannerheim’s grave, and don’t recall seeing the Star of David on any graves, and I wouldn’t think there would be many, since there are few Jews in Finland today, and quite a few who were there during WWII supposedly sat out the war in Sweden. The Finns also used the swastika, so you may have been looking at Finnish graves. Many of the Germans who died fighting with the Finns are buried in German military cemeteries in Finland. Helsinki has several, and there are more throughout the country.

    From what I have seen, Soviet dead often wound up in or barren plots with little or no upkeep, or even mass graves. Sometimes the Finns didn’t even bother burying the Soviet dead.

    German cemeteries tend to be much nicer.

    Maybe because Jews and Catholic are smarter than WASPs.

    Do you really believe that? WASPs are largely responsible for founding, settling, and building the U.S. Jews and Roman Catholics left other places to come here. Being dishonest about your motives and exploiting the trust of others isn’t the same as intelligence. If whites wanted to brutally oppress Jews and Catholics, they could have easily done so, but they opened up the nation to them instead. To cover up their backstabbing nature, many Jews and Catholics hold on to the lie that they overcame extreme discrimination and violence at the hands of white Protestants, and that it is their superior intelligence that allowed them to climb the ladder.

    I don’t know how white Catholics are viewed by newcomers, but they tend to blend in well with white Protestants. Jews, on the other hand, seem to be disliked by most other minority groups, as well as a fast growing number of whites. Jews also tend to fit their many negative stereotypes very well, and much more so than white Americans fit the negative stereotypes attributed to them. Nobody comes to the West hoping to live among Jews. In the end, even newcomers have high interest credit cards, overpriced mortgages on shitty homes, and mercenary relatives fighting Israel’s enemies while serving Uncle Samuel.

    The irony is that increasing the rainbow may also increase the enemies of Jews. Most immigrants and minorities know and work alongside average whites. That’s not the case with immigrants and Jews. Propaganda aside, people eventually make their own alliances and form their own opinions. The nation will be wrecked, but, at some point, even Jews will get what is coming to them. It would be small consolation, but still enjoyable to see them devoured by a beast of their own making. I think I would rather live in a society dominated by WASPs, and fight with my more established German Jewish cousins over country club admissions, if I were Jewish.

    Smart people learn from their past mistakes.

    you are so wrong, and such an asshole, btw, obviously not Finnish. Hietalahti cemetery has a map of where the soldiers lie, the Germans, the tomb of the Unknown Soldier; across the hedges is the Jewish cemetery (there is a population of about 2500-3000 Jews in Finland, today). As far as Hietalahti, Finns are scattered about, along with the area where the aristocratic families lie, etc. There is a map if you don’t believe me.

    Swedes are considered “traitors and effeminate losers” by Finns because they decided to stay neutral at the last minute ( I have facts) (bad for Finland bc they needed to buy weapons, for fucks sake). Yes, they only took Finnish kids, like they have taken Muslims these last decades; grudgingly. – Swedes are a retrograde, corrupt and degenerate people. And, they still are a spoiled and degenerate people – they deserve what will happen to them the next decade.

    I am also, a descendant of Patriots: so…fuck-off, you, American, little shit. And, you’ll never be welcome in Finland again. You are the perfect example of Ugly American, because you hate Europe and you hate America.
