Derbyshire at it again.
But, no. The Derb simply cannot control himself; therefore he reproduces the following “reader letter,” emphasis added:
The name “Soldiers of Odin” is probably just a marketing ploy, as Väinämöinen Sotila would be hard to understand for the Mail. And since the group has a couple of chapters in Norway already, it was probably wise. (Finns are to large extent still looked upon as subhumans in Scandinavia, even if they are 68% of the same stock.)
Yeah, Derb, that’s great. Now, apologists for the crown prince of measured groveling yellow fever would say that he is simply reproducing a reader’s letter. Yes, indeed, assuming the letter is genuine, then he chooses to publicize a letter that considers the “Odin” to be a “marketing ploy” (rather than an honest reflection of identification with Norse mythology in Northern Europe) and, more to the point, emphasizes that Finns are “looked upon as subhumans in Scandinavia.”
Now, is the letter correct? Is that how Finns are viewed in Scandinavia? I do not know. I would not be surprised – after all, groveling to Third World invaders while considering Northern European Finns to be “subhumans” is something to be expected from ultra-liberals (and I’m sure TOO would have all sorts of pontifications about “universalist hunter-gatherers” to explain it all to us). Perhaps nationalists such as Friberg and Hagberg (and/or Murros) can illuminate this for us, and provide an honest, unbiased observation on Germanic Scandinavian-Finnish relations. We certainly cannot trust Derbyshire, or any of his readers, to provide a truthful assessment of the ethnic/racial/cultural/historical dynamics at play there.
At this point, we can ask: what’s with this obsession HBDers have with Finns? True enough, the main (White) targets of HBD are the low-IQ, high-anxiety, neurotic Schettino wops (*) as well as “White rednecks” who they propose will be assimilated into “Redblex” along with Blacks and Hispanics (**). Still, one remembers Razib’s obsessive ridiculing of Finnish men at GNXP, and now we observe Derbyshire’s obvious anti-Finn fetishism, and so we can wonder what’s going on here?
Personally, I consider the Finns to be an impressive people. Indeed, one Kai Murros is worth more than an infinite number of miscegenating Derbyshires; the Derb being a “man” whose most famous accomplishment in life was being physically humiliated by the predominantly Chinese Eurasian hybrid Bruce Lee.
*That as opposed to low-anxiety, non-neurotic, stoic, phlegmatic Jews and non-anxious, heroic Korean ship captains.
**With upper-class Whites being wonderfully intermixed with Jews and other Asians into a “Jeurasian” ruling elite.
